Porsche Cayenne S Transsyberia (2010)


Porsche Cayenne S Transsyberia

Winning Porsches come in many shapes, and nowhere is the competitive Porsche Motorsport DNA more evident than in the latest version of the thriving Cayenne range - the new race-inspired 2010 Porsche Cayenne S Transsyberia.

The Porsche Cayenne S Transsyberia is based on the Cayennes that won one of the most grueling endurance races in the world. The rally marathon, which is held every spring, is a two-week race that traverses Russia, Siberia and Mongolia and covers over 4,400 miles. It is called, simply, the Transsyberia Rally, and slightly modified Porsche Cayenne S models have won this brutally demanding event three times in a row. The most capable Cayenne yet was revealed at the 2008 Paris Auto Show.

Just as the Weissach-developed Porsche Cayenne S Transsyberia competition models were based on the street version of the Cayenne S, this 2010 special edition, with less than 600 units earmarked for North America, features the 405 horsepower, 4.8 liter naturally aspirated, direct fuel injected V8 engine lifted directly from the Cayenne GTS. The Tiptronic S six-speed automatic transmission with a 4.11:1 final drive ratio is standard.

All Porsche Cayenne S Transsyberias is equipped with air suspension and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which electronically adjusts the shock absorbers to achieve superior ride and handling characteristics. The permanent all-wheel drive Porsche Traction Management (PTM) system divides the torque between the front and rear, with a 62% rear-bias for greater on-road driving dynamics.

Porsche Panamera (2010)


Porsche Panamera

Introducing the Panamera, Porsche is proudly presenting the first four-door Gran Turismo in the history of the Company. A brand-new development from the ground up, the Porsche Panamera sets a new benchmark in its class not only through supreme performance combined with exemplary fuel economy, but also through particularly generous comfort on all four seats and a wide range of exclusive features and equipment.

The Porsche Panamera boasts no less than five innovations in technology featured for the first time in a production model in the luxury performance segment: To be specific, Porsche's Gran Turismo is introducing the first double-clutch gearbox in this segment of the market, the first start-stop system in conjunction with automatic transmission, the first adaptive air suspension with on-demand additional volume in each spring, active aerodynamics provided for the first time by a rear spoiler moving up automatically and adjusting in its air flow angle, and the first Sport Chrono Package serving at a touch of a button to give the engine, the suspension and transmission, together with other components, an even more sporting and more dynamic set-up. And in conjunction with PDK, Launch Control ensures the fastest con ceivable acceleration from a standstill.

The various models in the Porsche Panamera range set a new standard in the luxury performance segment also in terms of efficiency. All models come with Direct Fuel Injection, low-friction drive systems and lightweight bodies. Even the top version, the Porsche Panamera Turbo, weighs less than 2,000 kilos or 4,410 lb (DIN norm) despite its wide range of standard features included from the start.

Porsche 911 Black Edition (2011)


Porsche 911 Black Edition

The Porsche 911 Black Edition offer the core 911 principles of distinctive design with inner strength; with a high level of specification that emphasises the iconic styling of the car and enhances the interior, while retaining the authentic sporting character of the driving experience.

Available in just 1,911 examples worldwide, the Porsche 911 Black Edition is painted in plain black as standard, with Basalt Black metallic available as an option. The electric-folding hood of the Cabriolet model is trimmed in black cloth. Exterior highlights are provided by the 19-inch 911 Turbo II forged alloy wheels, the glossy metallic appearance of which perfectly complements the discreet elegance of these 911 models. In addition, the wheel rims provide an unobstructed view of the brake discs which are naturally paired with black-finished, four-piston aluminium monobloc fixed callipers.

Black lettering on the stainless steel door entry guards identifies each 'Black Edition', and provides a first hint of the high-quality interior design with its focus on pure sports car values. Inside, the colour theme of the exterior continues with a black leather interior, and facing the driver is a thick-rimmed SportDesign steering wheel. The instrument cluster naturally remains in black. On the glove compartment lid, a badge testifies to the limited production run of the Porsche 911 Black Edition. By way of contrast, the decorative fascia strip, gear lever and air vents are finished in aluminium-look paint. The rear centre console is painted in the exterior colour.

Porsche 911 Carrera GTS (2011)


Porsche 911 Carrera GTS

With a power output of 408 hp, outstanding vehicle dynamics and emphatically sporty equipment, the new Porsche 911 Carrera GTS ascends to the pinnacle of the Carrera model series. 23 hp more than the 911 Carrera S enable the new GTS - available as Coupé and Cabriolet - with 3.8-litre engine to close the gap up to the 911 GT3 with 435 hp. This additional sportiness goes hand in hand with the economic advantage: thanks to Porsche Intelligent Performance, the new top sports car consumes no more fuel than the Carrera S in the New European Dri ving Cycle (NEDC), and is also priced very attractively due to its extensive standard equipment.

In the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS, the combination of the 44 millimetre wider Carrera 4 body of the AWD models including wider track with a classic rear-wheel drive is unique within the Carrera family. The GTS is also optically and technically distinguished from the other Carrera models via a range of other details. For instance, the GTS runs on 19-inch RS Spyder centre-mount wheels, painted in black, with high-gloss finish rim flanges and 305/30 ZR 19 tyres on the rear axle. Further optical features include the SportDesign front apron with spoiler edge, painted in black, special black sideskirts and the Carrera GTS logotypes - in black or silver depending on body colour - on the doors and rear lid. The area between the tailpipes in the rear is also finished in black. The driver and passenger sit on sports seats, whose centre sections are covered with black Alcantara in combination with the standard interior colour "black Alcantara". In the sporty interior, which is dominated by the colour black, this highquality material is also used wherever the driver and passenger come into direct contact with the vehicle, like on the rim of the new three-spoke SportDesign steering wheel and on the gear and handbrake levers, for example.

Porsche 911 GT2 RS (2011)


Porsche 911 GT2 RS

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS is an ultra-high-performance sports car proudly taking over pole position in the line-up of the most powerful and fastest production sports cars in the history of Porsche. An extra 90 horsepower and weight reduced by 70 kg or 154 lb compared with the 911 GT2, give the 911 GT2 RS a power-to-weight ratio of only 2.21 kg (4.88 lb) per horsepower, setting a new benchmark in this class.

As a leading example of Porsche Intelligent Performance, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS is moreover not only faster, but also more fuel-efficient: Despite the car's extra power, both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions in the NEDC New European Driving Cycle are down by approximately 5 per cent compared with the 911 GT2, with the following exact specifications: 3.6-litre biturbo flat-six power unit delivering 620 hp; rear-wheel drive, six-speed manual gearbox; weight, unladen, to DIN standard 1,370 kg/3,021 lb; acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds; top speed 330 km/h or 205 mph; fuel consumption in the NEDC cycle 11.9 ltr/100 km (equal to 23.7 mpg imp); CO2 emissions 284 g/km.

Clearly dedicated to motorsport, this new top-of-the-range GT in the 911 line-up sets stan dards on both road and track. On the Nordschleife of Nürburgring the new model outper forms the lap times of the already very fast 911 GT2 by a full 14 seconds, clocking in in just 7:18 minutes. Accelerating all-out, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS reaches the 200-km/h mark (125 mph) in just 9.8 seconds and continues on to the 300-km/h mark in a mere 28.9 seconds.

Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (2011)


Porsche 911 GT3 Cup

The 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup race car, making its debut in the 2011 Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship, is the latest edition of the best-selling racing car of all time, having been built in a production series of more than 1,400 units since 1998.

The latest Porsche 911 GT3 Cup racer is based for the first time on the 911 GT3 RS road car, with the weight of the motor sport derivative reduced significantly versus the already lightweight road car. The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is designed for racing in the many Porsche Carrera Cup Championships around the globe and the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup that supports Grands Prix, and was based previously on the 911 GT3.

As a consequence of being based on the 911 GT3 RS, this is the first Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car to feature the 44-millimetre (1.73") wider body at the rear, which provides increased space for even larger wheels and slick tyres. Wider front wheel arches also clearly show that the front wheels/tyres are likewise bigger which, combined with other evolutionary changes, has enabled the dynamic performance of the latest car to reach new heights.

Engine capacity is up by 0.2 litres over the prior GT3 Cup car, with power output rising by 30 hp more than before. Thus the rear-mounted 3.8-litre six-cylinder horizontally-opposed power unit develops 450 hp, and drives the rear wheels through a sequential six-speed manual gearbox and limited slip differential.

Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid (2011)


Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid

A Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid with innovative hybrid drive will be unveiled at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, taking the evolution of the iconic sports coupe to new levels in motor sport and opening a new chapter in an illustrious racing record that has witnessed more than 20,000 victories in 45 years.

After its debut in Switzerland, the Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid will be tested in long-distance races around the Nürburgring, Germany. The highlight of this test programme will be the 24 Hours race around the 14-mile Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit on 15/16 May 2010. However, the focus is not on the Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid winning the race but rather serving as a spearhead for the technology and a 'racing laboratory' that will provide invaluable knowledge and insight on the subsequent use of hybrid technology in road-going Porsche sports cars.

110 years since Ferdinand Porsche - the company's founder - developed the world's first car with hybrid drive, the Lohner Porsche Semper Vivus, it is entirely appropriate that Porsche is once again employing this visionary drive concept in a production car-based GT racing programme.

The hybrid technology featured in the Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid has been developed especially for racing, and is set apart from conventional hybrid systems in its configuration and choice of components. Uniquely, an electrical front axle drive with two electric motors each developing 60 kW supplements the familiar 480 hp (353 kW) four-litre flat-six 'boxer' petrol engine at the rear of the Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid. Consequently, the Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid has four driven wheels, offering even greater traction and agility.

Porsche 911 Speedster (2011)


Porsche 911 Speedster

Very low-slung, very sporty and very rare: Porsche is to launch a small series of the new Porsche 911 Speedster. Paying homage to the first Porsche model to bear the name Speedster - the 356 Speedster from 1954 - the new model will be limited to just 356 vehicles. The twoseater differs significantly from the other members of the 911 family. In best tradition, the 60 millimetre shorter windscreen, the flat contour of the sporty-looking manual convertible top and the characteristic double bubble on the convertible top compartment lid define the striking profile of the new 911 Speedster. Thereby making this rear-wheel drive vehicle's body, which is 44 millimetres wider at the rear, stand out even more impressively. The new Porsche 911 Speedster combines the classic features of this type of Porsche sports car with the further improved performance of the current 911 generation.

From the front, the Speedster is recognisable by its special front apron, darkened front lamps and black headlight surrounds. Specific side skirts and the autonomous rear apron with black "Speedster" lettering round off its individual look. The new model reveals its perfect Speedster lines with the top open or closed. The Porsche engineers have developed an exclusively manually operated convertible top to achieve this.

The new Porsche 911 Speedster also underscores its sporty standards with extensive weight savings. Aluminium doors, the omission of the rear seat system and the standard ceramic brake system (PCCB) significantly reduce weight. The new convertible top compartment lid consists of aluminium and is therefore barely any heavier than its significantly smaller relative in the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet. Despite extensive, additional equipment, this has enabled the Porsche 911 Speedster to precisely match the weight of the open-topped Carrera S, 1,540 kilograms. In combination with the increased engine performance, this results in a power-to-weight ratio of 3.8 kg/hp.
