Porsche Cayenne S Diesel (2013)


Porsche Cayenne S Diesel

In the new Porsche Cayenne S Diesel, engine power and intelligent all-wheel drive interact in an incomparable way: 850 Newton-metres of torque and Porsche Traction Management (PTM). This is the first time that Porsche is employing an eight-cylinder diesel, which immediately assumes the top position in its market segment for power, torque and efficiency.

It is also the world's only diesel V8 to offer an automatic start/stop function in this market segment. While the Cayenne Diesel with a V6 engine represents top efficiency with as much sporty performance as possible, the new Porsche Cayenne S Diesel impressively demonstrates top sports performance with as much efficiency as possible. The new V8 engine with two turbochargers always keeps a powerhouse of energy in store for the driver to call up at any time; it reacts with sporty spontaneity and performs with excellent efficiency under all circumstances. The PTM distributes the engine's powerful propulsive forces according to the specific driving situation, precisely and individually to all four wheels; in interplay with the Cayenne chassis it converts this power into forward propulsion and dynamic performance with unrivalled effectiveness. The optional Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV Plus) distributes engine power in an even sportier way.

The Porsche Cayenne S Diesel offers a driving experience that is typical of a Porsche and is yet completely new. It is emotional like a sports car, with regard to both its vehicle dynamics and its sound. Smooth engine running and the sound of an eight-cylinder reach the same levels as those of previous Porsche V8 engines. Yet, its diesel operating principle yields a level of fuel economy that makes the Cayenne S Diesel an ideal and comfortable touring vehicle for long trips: based on NEDC fuel consumption values, the car can cover about 1,200 km on a single fill of the optional 100-litre fuel tank.

Porsche Cayenne Turbo S (2013)


Porsche Cayenne Turbo S

An engine output of 550 hp (405 kW) makes the new Porsche Cayenne Turbo S the flagship model of the Porsche SUV range. Thanks to its sophisticated active suspension, this top athlete with an SUV styling surpasses the driving dynamics of many sports cars. Nonetheless, the Cayenne retains all basic characteristics of the series, such as extensive off-road capabilities, high travel comfort and superior traction power.

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo S is designed for optimum driving dynamics throughout. That's why it comes with all relevant control systems as standard. The combination of air suspension and PASM active damping control is borrowed from the Cayenne Turbo. This is complemented by the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), which eliminates swaying in corners almost entirely, resulting in improved agility and comfort. The Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus), which is also standard equipment in this model, uses variable torque distribution to the rear wheels, and an electronically controlled rear differential lock, which translates into more agility in all driving situations. The new Cayenne Turbo S also comes with the Sport Chrono Package as standard.

Exterior features and equipment of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S meet the high standards of a flagship model. Numerous exterior features such as air intake grilles, headlight housing and mirror components are in black high-gloss finish. The standard 21-inch 911 Turbo II wheels with coloured Porsche crest are painted in gloss black on the inside, an exclusive styling for the Cayenne Turbo S.

Porsche 911 GT3 (2014)


Porsche 911 GT3

Every Porsche has a race car at its heart. And never was the close relation to car racing so tangible. The new Porsche 911 GT3 stands for a redefined, even more emotional driving experience. The sports car that was developed from scratch offers even more dynamism and refined everyday practicality at the highest level.

With the GT3, Porsche is marking this 911 anniversary year by opening a new chapter in the area of high performance sports cars for circuit tracks. Both engine and transmission, as well as body and chassis are entirely new, and extend the 911 GT3 concept with an impressive performance leap. This is due to the new active rear-wheel steering, and the GT3-specific Porsche dual-clutch transmission with the characteristics of a sequential gearbox used in motor racing. Following the total production of 14,145 GT3 cars since 1999, the fifth generation of the 911 GT3, an all-round redevelopment, is set to take on the pole position among the thoroughbred Porsche sports cars with naturally aspirated engines.

The mission of the Porsche 911 GT3 is unmistakable: driving dynamics. Each and every relevant detail has been fine-tuned to that. The result is impressive: the new 911 GT3 laps the Nürburgring Northern Loop, indisputably the most challenging race track in the world, in a mere 7:25 minutes. A benchmark of great significance for the sportiest 911 with a naturally aspirated engine. Because around 80 percent of all 911 GT3 vehicles are also driven on race tracks.

Porsche 911 RSR (2014)


Porsche 911 RSR

In its first appearance in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Porsche 911 RSR shone 2013 with magnificent first and second place finishes (GT-Class). The GT racer from Weissach, which is distinguished by its systematic lightweight design and refined aerodynamics, has been further improved in many aspects for 2014. And with success: it started the 2014 season impressively as class victor at the 24-hour race at Daytona.

The 911 RSR, which is used in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the new United Sports Car Championship in the USA and Canada as part of the WEC World Sportscar Championship series, made its appearance in 2013 as a successor to the successful 911 GT3 RSR. It is based on the seventh generation of the 911 sports car icon. As in its production car counterpart, its wheelbase was lengthened by a full ten centimetres. A new wishbone front suspension replaces the previously used MacPherson sprint strut suspension. The lightweight racing gearbox is also a special new development by Porsche Motorsport. Its six gears are shifted by shift paddles on the steering wheel. The 470 hp four-litre flat six engine was taken from the previous model and optimised in its details.

One of the central focuses in developing the 911 RSR was to attain a balanced weight distribution. The vehicle's centre of gravity is also significantly lower than in the previous model. Carbon fibre material assumes a special significance here. The front and rear wings, front and rear lids, the doors, underbody, wheel arch panels, rear wing, dashboard and centre console are made of this exceptionally lightweight and strong material. In addition, all windows are made of very thin and lightweight polycarbonate. The familiar lightweight lithium-ion battery of the GT street models also makes a contribution towards weight savings.

Porsche 911 Turbo (2014)


Porsche 911 Turbo

In introducing the new generation 911 Turbo and Turbo S, Porsche is presenting the top cars of the 911 model series in terms of technology and dynamic performance. 40 years after the world premiere of the first Turbo prototype, the Porsche 911 Turbo is redefining the limits of what is feasible in a sports car for everyday use

For 40 years now, the unique selling point of the 911 Turbo has been the extreme spread of its capabilities that range between dynamic performance and efficiency, between exclusivity and everyday practicality, between tradition and innovation. Advanced development of existing systems and the introduction of new active systems are extending this range in such a way that the 911 Turbo models have now cranked their top values up a notch in all individual disciplines. For example, the lap time of the new Porsche 911 Turbo S at the North Loop of the Nürburgring was reduced to well under 7:30 minutes - naturally with standard production tyres. This advances it into realms of dynamic performance that were previously only attainable by uncompromisingly designed super sports cars.

More than ever, the two new top models also make a clear visual statement about their performance. The characteristic widely flared rear fenders of the new 911 Turbo generation are 28 mm wider than those of the 911 Carrera 4 models - a nearly level surface of more than a hand width extends out from the C-pillar to the outer edge of the car.

Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet (2014)


Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet

The dynamic range of the new 911 Turbo models multiplied by the driving pleasure offered by an open-top sports car: This is the succinct formula behind the two new leading 911 Cabriolet models. Some 50 years after the 911 first made its début and to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the 911 Turbo, the open-top versions of the 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S are making their global début. The vehicles will be unveiled for the very first time at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show . By adding the two new leading 911 models into the mix, Porsche is doubling its offering of the top-of-the-range models to four versions.

In supplementing the range, the Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet and 911 Turbo S Cabriolet deliver the same blend of dynamism, performance and efficiency offered by the Coupé model unveiled a few months ago. Expressed in figures: The turbocharged 3.8-litre six-cylinder engine delivers 520 bhp (383 kW) in the open-top 911 Turbo and 560 bhp (412 kW) in the S model. The cars accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 3.5 and 3.2 seconds respectively, reaching a top speed of up to 318 km/h. And all this while achieving fuel consumption figures below the ten-litre limit: Both of the new top-of-the-range Cabriolet models rest assured in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC), boasting figures of 9.9 l/100 km (equivalent to 231 g/km CO2). When compared against the respective predecessor models, the new vehicles deliver 30 bhp more power and are 0.2 seconds faster in terms of their standard acceleration. They are also up to 15% more efficient.

Porsche 919 Hybrid (2014)


Porsche 919 Hybrid

Porsche is returning to the top category of the famous endurance race classic at Le Mans and the World Endurance Championships (WEC) for sports cars with its newly developed 919 Hybrid. The LMP1 prototype, which is designed for extreme efficiency, is the most complex race car that Porsche ever put on wheels.

It serves as a research platform for fundamental technology to be used in future production models, with its combination of two different energy recovery systems and a downsizing turbocharged engine. So the real winner of Porsche factory racing is already clear: it is the customer.

The World Endurance Championship (WEC) for sports cars launches into a new era, beginning on 20 April at Silverstone in Great Britain. The season highlight, Le Mans, follows in June. The newly formulated regulations for the top class of this World Championship has completely changed in focus. From now on, the sporty performance of the LMP1-H prototypes will be rated in direct relationship to their energy efficiency. While the allowable fuel quantity per lap was reduced by around 30 per cent compared to the prior year, the amount of energy of the obligatory hybrid systems that can be used in the race was dramatically increased. This shifts technologies into the limelight that are most significant for future production vehicles. From the perspective of Porsche, that is a decisive argument for a return to the top league of sports car racing.

Porsche Cayman (2014)


Porsche Cayman

The new Porsche Cayman is once again promising to set new standards for driving performance in its class - with an all-round new chassis, longer wheelbase and significantly lower weight compared to the previous model. The two-seater, newly developed from the ground up is - after the 911 Carrera and Boxster - the third sports car model series from Porsche to feature innovative lightweight body design.

The new Cayman is up to 30 kg lighter, depending on the specific model and equipment, and it consumes up to 15 per cent less fuel per 100 km than the previous model - despite more powerful engines and better driving performance. In addition, the body is 40 per cent stiffer, which further enhances the sportiness of this driving artist in bends.

Porsche is also upgrading the Cayman with new optional features. For the first time, the sport coupé is available with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), which controls the distance to the car ahead in traffic and vehicle speed, as well as a specially developed Burmester sound system. Another new feature for the Porsche Cayman is the optional Entry & Drive keyless system that can be factory installed

Design: new proportions, prominent lines

The new Porsche Cayman is more distinctive than ever. Its proportions were moderately changed to emphasise its character as a sport coupé. The 60 mm longer wheelbase and broader track width give the Cayman a lower and more extended look in combination with the ten millimetre lower (Cayman S: eleven mm) body height. Nonetheless, the two-seat sports car is still compact, having grown just 33 mm in length. The body's front overhang was shortened 26 mm. Other visual features reflecting the car's more enhanced driving performance include an extended wheelbase with shorter overhangs and 18-inch or 19-inch diameter wheels with tyres that have larger rolling circumferences.
