Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe (2006)


Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe

The heralded Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe and Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe offer several new features for the 2006 model year. These changes include options such as two-tone interiors; an electronic logbook to record mileage, journey length, date and time; an extended navigation module that lets the driver trace his or her way back to a starting point even when the road does not appear on the navigation system's internal map; and a tire-pressure monitoring system and new 19-inch Carrera Sport wheels. Also for 2006, the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system can now play MP3 encoded CDs through the CD unit.

Additionally, the X51 Power Kit is available for the already more powerful 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe. Featuring revised cylinder heads, carbon-fiber air cleaner housing, an aluminum air intake system, a reprogrammed engine control unit, and revised exhaust manifolds with sport exhaust and specially tuned tailpipes, the kit increases power, cuts acceleration times and increases the top track speed of this special model.

With the kit, the horsepower rating of the Carrera S Coupe's 3.8-liter flat six-cylinder engine increases from 355 (SAE) to 381 (SAE). Acceleration from a standing start to 60 miles per hour (96 km/h) drops by two-tenths of a second — to just 4.4 seconds with a manual transmission and to 4.8 seconds with Tiptronic® S. With the manual gearbox, the Carrera S Coupe's top track speed climbs to 186 miles per hour, the magical 300-km/h figure that puts this Porsche into the ranks of the world's "super cars." Top speed on the test track for the 2006 Carrera S Coupe with Tiptronic S transmission is 182 mph (294 km/h).

Porsche Boxster (2006)


Porsche Boxster

With powerful engines purposely positioned immediately behind the driver's and passenger's seats to optimize the outstanding balance of an especially athletic chassis, the 2006 Porsche Boxster and 2006 Porsche Boxster S satisfy enthusiast drivers with exceptional levels of dynamic capabilities. At the same time, Porsche's roadsters provide styling that is thoroughly modern while carrying forward cues from the company's rich heritage.

Thoroughly modern, but with a strong nod to heritage

The roadsters' design theme draws heavily on such famous and historic Porsche racecars as the 550 Spyder and the RS60, vehicles that beat larger and more powerful competitors in the heyday of international sports car racing. However, the 2006 Porsche Boxster and 2006 Porsche Boxster S are modern in every way. For example, they were the first roadsters produced with standard side airbags coupled with separate airbags that help protect occupants' heads.

They also share 911 and even Porsche Carrera GT design elements, especially when it comes to aerodynamics designed to enhance road-holding dexterity and high-speed stability.

Porsche Boxster: Boxer engine, Roadster structure

The Porsche Boxster takes its name from its horizontally opposed "boxer" six-cylinder engine architecture and its classic, two-seat, open-air "roadster" chassis structure.

Porsche Cayenne S Titanium (2006)


Porsche Cayenne S Titanium

Porsche Cayenne S Titanium Edition was designed specifically for the U.S. and Canadian markets. The V-8 powered Porsche Cayenne S Titanium Edition is a sharp new addition to the Porsche Cayenne lineup of sporting SUVs, and features titanium-colored trim, exclusive exterior and interior finishes, and the Cayenne's most popular options as standard equipment. The Porsche Cayenne S Titanium Edition provides this additional content at a price point approximately 10 percent lower than a comparably equipped Cayenne S. The newest Porsche SUV draws it moniker from the "Titanium Metallic" trim which is exclusive to the model. The exterior trim pieces which receive a finish in this subtle metallic hue include the roof spoiler, the frame and lower portion of the side mirrors, the front air inlets, window frames including the B- and C-pillars, door handles (with a body-color inlay), door-sill trim and the Cayenne S logo.

The Porsche Cayenne S Titanium Edition is available in four distinct exterior colors, including two which are exclusive to the new model: "Pure Red" is a vibrant and overtly sporting shade, and "Iceland Silver Metallic" is a classic light silver tinged with cool blue. The Porsche Cayenne S Titanium Edition is also be available in "Black" and "Marine Blue Metallic." Along with the door handle inlays, each Porsche Cayenne S Titanium Edition features body-colored rocker-panel extensions, helping frame the standard 19-inch wheels coated in a Titanium Metallic finish. Also standard are fourpipe- look chrome exhaust tips, and 20-inch SportTechno wheels with a titanium-color finish are optional.

Porsche Cayenne Turbo S (2006)


Porsche Cayenne Turbo S

Two upgraded intercoolers with an even higher level of efficiency, turbocharger boost pressure increased by up to 0.2 bar, and modified engine management give the 4.5-litre eight-cylinder biturbo power unit featured in the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S a significant increase in output and performance: Now reaching 383 kW (521 bhp) at 5500 rpm, maximum output of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S is 52 kilowatts or 71 horsepower above that of the Cayenne Turbo.

These modifications have an equally great effect on the development of power throughout the engine's speed range, the Porsche Turbo S engine developing peak torque of 720 Newton-metres (531 lb-ft) all the way from 2750 - 3750 rpm, representing an increase by exactly 100 Newton-metres at its pinnacle. Boasting this kind of torque, the Cayenne Turbo S, following the Carrera GT, is the second most powerful road car ever built by Porsche.

Performance enhanced to an even higher standard

This extra power and torque naturally means a further improvement of performance on the road: The Porsche Cayenne Turbo S accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 5.2 seconds and has a top speed of 270 km/h or 167 mph. Overtaking in the medium speed range is an equally impressive exercise, the new top model in the Cayenne family taking just 5.4 seconds to accelerate from 80-120 km/h (50-75 mph).

Porsche 911 Carrera 4 (2007)


Porsche 911 Carrera 4

The fabled wide-body, all-wheel-drive version Porsche 911 returns for the 2007 model year with several enhancements. These include tire-pressure monitoring systems, North American navigation systems that include maps of Mexico and Puerto Rico, and there's a new exterior color -- Meteor Grey Metallic. Also available are 19-inch wheels in the new Turbo design.

The wide-body Porsche 911 returned to the lineup for the 2006 model year in the form of the Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and the even more powerful Porsche 911 Carrera 4S. Both feature flared wheel arches to accommodate a widened track, larger wheels and tires and all-wheel-drive powertrains that give the venerable Porsche 911 additional dimensions of dynamic stability, especially in inclement weather conditions.

Nearly two inches wider

The all-wheel-drive versions of the Porsche 911 Carrera are nearly two inches (1.73 inches or 44 mm) wider than their two-wheel-drive counterparts. This extra width is needed to cover the wheels that are part of the enhanced all-wheel drive system.

On the 2007 Porsche 911 Carrera 4, front wheels are eight inches wide by 18 inches in diameter and wear 235/40 Z-rated tires, while the rear wheels are 11 inches wide, again 18 inches in diameter and shod with 295/35-aspect Z-rated tires.

Meanwhile, the 2007 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S is equipped with 19 x 8-inch front wheels with 235/35 Z rated tires and the huge 19 x 11-inch rear wheels with 305/30 aspect Z-rated tires.

Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet (2007)


Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet

With a sure-footed, four-wheel drive powertrain, the enhanced look that comes with their "wide-body" styling, and with tops that open or close at the touch of a button, the 2007 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and 2007 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet truly are sports cars that can be enjoyed year around and regardless of the season.

For the 2007 model year, these fabled Cabriolets also offer new standard and optional equipment, including standard tire-pressure monitoring systems. Also available is a new color - Meteor Grey Metallic - as well as a North American navigation system that includes maps of Mexico and Puerto Rico. Yet other new options include the new 19-inch wheel in Turbo design.

Both Cabriolets feature flared wheel arches designed to accommodate a widened track, larger wheels and tires, and all-wheel-drive powertrains that give the venerable Porsche 911 additional dimensions of dynamic stability, especially in inclement weather conditions.

The 2007 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet were designed and developed in parallel with the fixed-roof versions of these Porsche sports cars. Instead of merely taking a Coupe, cutting off its top and then reinforcing its structure with weighty panels, Porsche engineers were able to provide the pleasures of open-top motoring by designing a vehicle that offers the stiffness and strength needed without adding unwanted weight. The result is outstanding dynamic performance with exceptional safety protection.

Porsche 911 GT3 (2007)


Porsche 911 GT3

Bred for the enthusiast driver who craves track days as much as street drives, the 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 is as at home at Clubsport events as it is in everyday traffic. Powered by a 415-horsepower, 3.6-liter Boxer six-cylinder, the raceinspired engine reaches its maximum output at 7600 rpm, on the way to a lofty 8400 rpm redline. These specs place Porsche's flat-Six power unit at the specific-output pinnacle for current naturally aspirated production cars. The engine's high-revving characteristics are made possible by the concentrated reduction of moving masses in the engine, with further optimization of air flow making significant contribution to the increased output. A variable-length intake manifold, combined with a larger, 82 mm throttle butterfly, optimized cylinder heads and exhaust system with lower back-pressure significantly reduce flow resistance versus the former model, improving the cylinder charge cycle.

Optimized exhaust system

An extra-large main muffler with central tailpipes and two pre-mufflers controlled via the exhaust gas butterflies reduce the exhaust gas back-pressure. Compared with the previous GT3 model, overall capacity of the new exhaust system is up 12 liters. At the same time, the Porsche 911 GT3 fulfills all noise and exhaust emission limits under the LEV II and Euro 4 standards, while still offering the incomparable sound of sporting performance.
