Presented at the 2014 Geneva International Motor Show, the new 2014 Porsche 911 GT3 boiled-up grand tourer will be officially the first Porsche ever to offer an active rear wheel steering system that will dramatically increase the car’s maneuverability (although you will probably have to spend some time adapting to it if you really want to become good at driving this monster.)
The turning rear wheels and the powerful 3.8-liter flat-six engine are responsible for the GT3’s outstanding performance on the famous Nurburgring Nordschleife race track. According to Porsche, the new car takes less than seven and a half minutes to complete a lap, which puts it in the same league with such tarmac scorchers as Pagani Zonda F Clubsport, 2010 Nissan GT-R and the red-hot 2008 Chevrolet Corvette C6 ZR1.
The German luxury brand will soon start selling the 2009 Porsche Cayenne GTS Design Edition 3 sports utility vehicle. With a production run limited to only a mere thousand of glorified performance SUVs, the special edition model may spur a wave of interest in the model that, truth be told, already stays on the production line way too long.
Current Porsche Cayenne may be one of the most versatile performance SUVs currently available on the market, but it has got a serious problem: it is old. In fact, it is so old that even the Biblical guy Methuselah looks like a boy scout when standing next to the German crossover SUV with its outdated sheet-metal and not especially inspiring plastic parts. JE Design, a tuning specialist of the same origin has made its own attempt at cosmetic surgery. Did they succeed? Hm…
German tuning specialist Inden Design has presented its new tuning program for the current 2007 Porsche Cayman S entry-luxury sports coupe. While the exterior of the car left virtually untouched (if you don’t count in the new rims, that is), there is a number of upgrades to its engine and exhaust that not only make the car run a little faster, but also rub a Cayman S owner’s ego exactly the right way.
Porsche has finally revealed some info on its 2010 Porsche Cayman S Sport model, which is meant to somehow increase sales of its outgoing Cayman S that seem to start stalling a bit as potential customers take that usual “let’s wait and see” stance before the inevitable arrival of the face-lifted model.
There are tuners, there are super-tuners, and there is 9ff. Some limit their efforts to body parts and some hire the best of the best engineers in their field to create extensive engine upgrade programs that turn mundane cars into low-flying jets. As you have probably already guessed, the German tuning specialist doesn’t waste its time and energy creating plastic body kits and exclusive velour floor mats. Instead, they turn your “ordinary” 2008 Porsche 911 into a rocket that takes less than five seconds to accelerate from zero to 200 kilometers per hour.
If you feel that a 480hp Porsche 911 Turbo with its 3.8 seconds of 0 to 100 km/h acceleration time is somewhat not adequate to your driver’s needs, then German tuning specialist Hamann does have a good news for you.
The German Hofele Design tuning studio, which is specializing on making appearance kits for vehicles like Audi Q7, and different flavors of Volkswagens, introduced its new GT 500 body kit for the facelifted 2009 Porsche Cayenne SUV.
