Porsche Cayman GTS (2015)


Porsche Cayman GTS

A duo of the strongest and fastest mid-engine sports cars by Porsche is making its way to the starting line: the Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS are the new sporty benchmarks in their segment with power-boosted engines and an excellent PASM chassis.

Highlights of their individual and distinctive appearance include a unique front end with smoked bi-xenon headlights - with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) as standard -, a modified rear body apron, and exterior badges in silky gloss black which combine to make an understated but clear statement that these are the new top models. The name says it all: at Porsche, GTS stands for Gran Turismo Sport and has promised outstanding Porsche performance ever since the legendary 904 Carrera GTS dating back to 1963. With the launch of these new models, Porsche is emphasising its tradition of building authentic sports cars for both the race track and everyday use.

The Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS combine top-end dynamic performance with the typical Porsche spread of efficiency, undiminished ride comfort and exclusive features fitted as standard. For instance, the standard PASM and Sport Chrono package combine to let drivers switch between progressive sportiness and long touring comfort at the push of a button. The 235/35 front tyres and 265/35 rear tyres on 20-inch-wheels in Carrera S design are a perfect match for both driving modes. And the standard sports exhaust delivers further emotional appeal. Both two-seaters also come with sports seats Plus and leather interior as standard. Like in the other GTS models from Porsche, they are accentuated by Alcantara elements.

Porsche Macan (2015)


Porsche Macan

Porsche is expanding its range to include a whole new class of vehicle. The Macan is the first Porsche model to break into the compact SUV segment and is poised to set new standards in the field of driving dynamics and enjoyment - on both paved streets and off-road terrain.

The Porsche Macan combines the typical handling characteristics that Porsche has represented right from the outset: maximum acceleration and braking values, vast engine power, extreme agility and optimum steering precision. What's more, all of these features are teamed with a high level of comfort and everyday suitability. The sporty DNA of the Macan, as with all Porsche vehicles, is also immediately recognisable in the design. The Sports Utility Vehicle is unrivalled in its flat and broad profile on the road. The wraparound bonnet and gently sloping roof line accentuate the overall impression of sporty elegance and powerful dynamics. Many of the design elements have been taken from other Porsche sportscars and enhanced for the Macan, making it clear to see from the very first glance that the Porsche Macan heralds the first sportscar in the compact SUV segment. The Macan is "Made in Germany", produced at the Leipzig plant. Porsche has invested 500 million euro in the plant and has established an entire production line there. The line is set up to produce around 50,000 vehicles per year - all manufactured with the utmost precision and to the highest level of quality. Just what you would expect from Porsche.

Porsche Mission E Concept (2015)


Porsche Mission E Concept

In presenting the Mission E at the 2015 IAA in Frankfurt, Porsche is introducing the first all-electrically powered four-seat sports car in the brand's history. The concept car combines the unmistakable emotional design of a Porsche with excellent performance and the forward-thinking practicality of the first 800-volt drive system. Key specification data of this fascinating sports car: four doors and four single seats, over 600 hp (440 kW) system power and over 500 km driving range. All-wheel drive and all-wheel steering, zero to 100 km/h acceleration in under 3.5 seconds and a charging time of around 15 minutes to reach an 80 per cent charge of electrical energy. Instruments are intuitively operated by eye-tracking and gesture control, some even via holograms - highly oriented toward the driver by automatically adjusting the displays to the driver's position.

Drive system: over 600 hp with technologies from endurance racing

The drive system of the Mission E is entirely new, yet it is typical Porsche, i.e. proven in motor racing. Two permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM) - similar to those used in this year's Le Mans victor, the 919 hybrid - accelerate the sports car and recover braking energy. The best proof of a Porsche is 24 hours of top racing performance and a 1-2 finish. Together the two motors produce over 600 hp, and they propel the Mission E to a speed of 100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds and to 200 km/h in under twelve seconds. In addition to their high efficiency, power density and uniform power development, they offer another advantage: unlike today's electric drive systems, they can develop their full power even after multiple accelerations at short intervals. The need-based all-wheel drive system with Porsche Torque Vectoring - which automatically distributes torque to the individual wheels - transfers the drive system's power to the road, and all-wheel steering gives precise, sporty steering in the desired direction. This makes the Mission E fit for the circuit race track; its lap time on the Nürburgring Nordschleife is under the eight-minute mark.

Porsche 911 Carrera (2016)


Porsche 911 Carrera

The Porsche 911 has been the world's best-selling sports car for decades. Now the new generation has arrived to further extend this lead. With innovative turbo flat engines, an advanced chassis with an even greater spread between performance and comfort and a new infotainment system it is exceedingly well-equipped for this. Thanks to more than four decades of experience with turbo engines - in both motor racing and production sports cars - the new engines in the new 911 Carrera set benchmarks in terms of performance, driving pleasure and efficiency. The rear-axle steering available as an option for the Carrera models for the first time further greatly extends the range of driving dynamics.

Many exterior features of the 911 Carrera have been visually refined: these range from new headlights with four-point daytime running lights to door handles without recess covers, a redesigned rear lid with vertical louvres and new rear lights - including the characteristic four-point brake lights. In the interior the new standard Porsche Communication Management with a multi-touch display offers a considerably expanded range of functions and greatly simplified operation.

New turbocharged engines: 20 hp power increase coupled with lower fuel consumption

The completely new engine generation with bi-turbo charging raises the emotional driving pleasure in the 911 Carrera to an even more intensive experience: 370 hp (272 kW) of power at the rear of the 911 Carrera is waiting to be unleashed and converted into sporty propulsion. The engine in the 911 Carrera S now delivers 420 hp (309 kW). In both cases this represents a power increase of 20 hp (15 kW). Both engines have a displacement of three litres. The greater power of the 911 Carrera S results from turbochargers with modified compressors, a specific exhaust system and tuned engine management.

Porsche 911 Carrera 4 (2016)


Porsche 911 Carrera 4

A sports car with all-wheel drive is the first choice for more than one in three Porsche 911 buyers. With the new 911 Carrera 4 and 911 Targa 4, they now profit from an increase in sporting characteristics and comfort in the latest 911 generation: the innovative turbocharged engines are more powerful and consume less, with the improved all-wheel drive increasing dynamics and driving safety. In addition, the adaptive PASM chassis (Porsche Active Suspension Management) with its ten-millimetre lower ride height included as standard enables an even greater spread between sporty circuit and relaxed long-distance driving. Rear-axle steering that is available as an option for the Carrera 4S models further increases the dynamic spectrum considerably. Interior functionality is enhanced by the standard-feature Porsche Communication (PCM) connectivity and infotainment system with simplified operation and multi-touch display.

The all-wheel drive models not only include the numerous optical refinements of the new 911 Carrera generation but also have their own individual distinguishing characteristics. For instance, the light strip between the rear lights now produces an especially distinctive effect thanks to its consciously three-dimensional design. When switched on, the light reinforces the impression of depth. The light strip also underlines the typical format of the all-wheel drive 911, with rear wings that arch further outwards by 44 millimetres in total, as in previous models. Additional distinguishing features of the new 911 generation range from the headlights with four-point daytime running lights, via door handles without recess covers, to the redesigned rear lid with vertical louvres and new rear lights - including the characteristic four-point brake lights.

Porsche 911 GT3 R (2016)


Porsche 911 GT3 R

Based on the 911 GT3 RS production sports car, Porsche has designed a customer sport race car for GT3 series around the world: The 911 GT3 R. In developing the more than 368 kW (500 hp) racing nine-eleven, special attention was paid to lightweight design, better aerodynamic efficiency, reducing consumption, improved handling, further optimised safety as well as lowering service and spare parts costs.

Adopted from its production sibling, the 911 GT3 R features the distinctive double-bubble roof, and the wheelbase which had been lengthened by 8.3 centimetres compared to the previous generation. This ensures a more balanced weight distribution and more predictable handling particularly in fast corners corners in comparison to the previous GT3 R. By applying systematic lightweight solutions for the body, add-on parts, and suspension, the engineers significantly optimised the centre of gravity position of the GT3 R compared to the predecessor model. The lightweight body design of the 911 GT3 RS production sports car featuring intelligent aluminium-steel composite construction has proven to be the ideal basis for the race car. The roof, front cover and fairing, wheel arches, doors, side and tail sections as well as the rear cover are made of particularly light carbon-fibre composite material (CFRP). All windows - and for the first time even the windscreen - consist of polycarbonate.

Powering the new 911 GT3 R is a cutting-edge four-litre flat-six unit which is largely identical to the high-performance production engine of the road-legal 911 GT3 RS. Direct petrol injection, which operates at pressures up to 200 bar, as well as variable valve timing technology ensure a particularly efficient use of fuel. Moreover, the normally-aspirated engine offers significantly better driveability and a broader usable rev range. Power from the rear engine is transferred to the 310 mm rear wheels via a Porsche sequential six-speed constant-mesh gearbox. As in the GT road-going models of the 911, the driver changes gears via shift paddles conveniently positioned on the steering wheel.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2016)


Porsche 911 GT3 RS

The new Porsche 911 GT3 RS breaks down the barrier between street-legal sports cars and race cars more than ever. It is equipped with the maximum degree of motorsport technology that is currently possible in a street-legal 911.

Extensive modifications to its drive system, aerodynamics and lightweight design enhance performance even more than in the 911 GT3. And the 911 GT3 RS - now in its fifth generation - achieves these gains despite having already set standards in its class on the circuit racetrack ever since making its debut. With a lap time of under seven minutes and 20 seconds, it sets a new standard and even surpasses the Carrera GT super sports car's lap time of 2003.

Motorsport expertise is the reason for this superior performance. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is powered by a four-litre six-cylinder engine with 500 hp (368 kW) of power and 460 Newton metres of torque, combined with a specially developed PDK transmission. The engine, which has the largest displacement and most power of any naturally aspirated engine with direct fuel injection in the 911 family, accelerates the high-performance sports car from zero to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and to 200 km/h in 10.9 seconds. Its NEDC combined fuel consumption is 12.7 l/100 km. Functions such as declutching by "paddle neutral" - which is comparable to pressing the clutch with a conventional manual transmission - and speed limiting by the Pit Speed button have been customised for motorsport use. On the one hand, they give the driver more freedom in terms of driving dynamics, and on the other hand they offer the driver more assistance when driving on a circuit racetrack.
