Porsche Boxster Spyder

As far as Porsche is concerned, exploring different directions in design also means looking back. Looking back at a time when driving roadsters was still thought of as a challenge, and one that would always be relished most in a Porsche.

The exterior finish of the Boxster Spyder upholds a long tradition. The purity of Carrara White evokes the motorsport of yesteryear, which is inextricably linked with the Porsche name. The optional Arctic Silver Metallic is reminiscent of an illustrious sports car history, as is the Porsche logo on the side of the car – an explicit reference to the 1960s.

The fixed spoiler draws a dynamic line along the muscular rear. An aesthetic detail for a tangible effect: to reduce lift and provide a closer connection with the road, making your driving experience even more intensive. The dual-tube twin tailpipe in black has the last sporty word. Read more of this post

Porsche Boxster S

It presents an even more athletic interpretation of the roadster concept. More powerful and more efficient. Its brand engine is now fitted with direct fuel injection (DFI) as standard. For increased torque and power – with a simultaneous reduction in fuel consumption. The result is 228 kW (310 hp) at 6,400 rpm and a maximum torque of 360 Nm at 4,400 – 5,500 rpm. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.3 seconds.

With the optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and ‘Launch Control’ from the optional Sport Chrono Package, just 5 seconds. Fuel consumption is further reduced by up to 15% depending on the type of gearbox, and CO2 emissions by up to 16%. Read more of this post

Porsche Boxster

The basic concept of the Boxster has lost none of its appeal in over 60 years. Even though the gap between the Porsche 356 No.1, the 550 Spyder and the Boxster seems huge, it’s still an out-andout roadster. High performance, lightweight construction, sporting agility, pure driving pleasure – these values are reflected in every detail.

The newly developed 2.9-litre sixcylinder Boxer engine delivers a power output of 188 kW (255 hp) at 6,400 rpm and a maximum torque of 290 Nm at between 4,400 and 6,000 rpm. Read more of this post

Porsche Cayman R

Minimize to maximize was the idea. The guiding principle was the power-to-weight ratio. Improving performance is not simply about boosting engine output, but radically dispensing with features that would otherwise mean only one thing: increased weight. This is the principle of Porsche Intelligent Performance.

What does this mean for the driver? Even better dynamics, even greater agility, and even more Porsche. Read more of this post

Porsche Cayman S

To accept no compromises, to make conscious decisions, to be governed by nothing other than one’s own free will, and to have a clear point of view. A highly promising way to build a sportscar.

 

It is from this philosophy that we developed the new mid-mounted engine with a 3.4-litre capacity and direct fuel injection (DFI). The engine delivers a power output of 235 kW (320 hp) at 7,200 rpm, and a maximum torque of 370 Nm is achieved at 4,750 rpm. It has been possible to reduce fuel consumption by up to 15% and CO2 emissions by up to 16%, depending on the type of gearbox.

Porsche Cayman

Precisely one attitude is the driving force behind the Cayman: the absolute conviction to remain true to oneself. No middle roads. No compromises. No nonsense.

One of the features that exemplifies this attitude is the mid-engine layout, which ensures a low centre of gravity and thus a high degree of agility and an extremely sporty drive. The new six-cylinder horizontally opposed power unit has a capacity of 2.9 litres. The engine delivers a power output of 195 kW (265 hp) at an engine speed of 7,200 rpm. A maximum torque of 300 Nm is achieved between 4,400 and 6,000 rpm. From a standing start, the Cayman accelerates to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 5.8 seconds. With the optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), this sprint takes just 5.7 seconds. Read more of this post

Porsche 911 GT2 RS

Porsche has revealed its most powerful and arguably most extreme road-going 911 to date: the GT2 RS.

The GT2 RS, to be built in a limited run of 500, is powered by the latest evolution of Zuffenhausen’s 3.6-liter, twin-turbocharged, horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine, tuned to deliver a Le Mans-grade 620 hp. That’s 90 hp more than the out-of-production 911 GT2 and 8 hp beyond the German carmaker’s previously most powerful road car, the 5.7-liter, naturally aspirated V10-powered Carrera GT.
