981 Boxster Spyder is out!

Mar 31, 2015 - 6:51 PM - by subshooter

Atlanta. Porsche is highlighting the 2015 convertible season by celebrating the world premiere of the new Boxster Spyder. This pure sports car will make its debut at the New York International Auto Show. The new top model of the Boxster range retains the unique and unmistakable character of the previous Spyder, which has already attained cult status. For example, the classic roadster top is still opened and closed by hand, and the Boxster Spyder is only available with a manual transmission, benefiting both weight savings and driver enjoyment.
Staying true to roadster DNA, the Boxster Spyder offers a traditional sports-car driving experience combined with truly exceptional performance. This includes a firm sport suspension with a 20-mm lower ride height, brakes taken from the 911 Carrera S, more direct steering, and a 3.8-liter horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine with an output of 375 hp, culminating in a...

NY Auto Show: Apple Acquires Porsche for 55.0B €

Mar 31, 2015 - 1:33 PM - by K-Man S
NEW YORK (March 31, 2015) - Tim Cook and Matthias Müller will take the stage in New York tomorrow to announce the acquisition of Porsche AG for approximately 55.0B€. Rumors of a forthcoming Apple Car may have been premature as it appears now that Apple will acquire all Porsche AG assets which include Porsche's soon to be released new hybrid electric Panamera sports sedan and Cayenne SUV. Preliminary indications are that all upcoming Porsche models will feature Apple's CarPlay system that can be operated via voice, touchscreen or physical controls. The first such vehicle will be the new just announced Porsche Panamera Edition Panamera. Hans-Gerd Bode briefly responded to initial press requests with the response that "Porsche will be integrating Apple technology and services while Apple will gain access to Porsche engineering and design to develop future transportation systems." Examples given include that Porsche Roadside... [Read More]

Cayman GT4 Announced!

Feb 03, 2015 - 10:19 PM - by K-Man S
The benchmark in its class: the Porsche Cayman GT4

Stuttgart. The new member of the Porsche GT family is the Cayman GT4. This is the first time Porsche is introducing a GT sports car based on the Cayman which has components of the 911 GT3. A lap time of 7 minutes and 40 seconds on the North Loop of the Nürburgring positions the Cayman GT4 as the new benchmark at the top of its market segment. It also makes a clear statement that Porsche will continue to promote radical two-door sports cars in the future – sports cars that are developed at the Motorsport department in Weissach.

The engine, chassis, brakes and aerodynamic design of the Cayman GT4 are configured for maximum driving dynamics; yet the top model still retains the versatility and everyday utility that are typical of the two-seat Porsche coupe. It is powered by a 3.8-litre flat-six engine with 385 hp (283 kW), which is derived from the 911 Carrera S engine.... [Read More]

Driving a Porsche in the Snow

Feb 28, 2015 - 5:36 PM - by rob76turbo

Now if the driving in the snow statement includes a Cayenne or new Macan or even a four-wheel drive version of the Panamera or 911, then there is nothing to see here…please move along. But if it’s a two wheel drive Porsche and maybe an old enough vintage that traction control was just a gleam in some product planner’s eye, then read on. This could be fun…or not.

The first time I drove a Porsche in the snow happened back in 2009. The inaugural Porsche Club of America Maverick Region DE was about to run at the brand new Eagles Canyon Raceway. There was no way I was going to miss that. You see, the prior year I had snuck on the track while it was under construction in my race prepped Miata and run some hot laps with a friend in another Miata. That just gave us a taste that we wanted more.

I had just started running “R” rated tires on my 1993 968 (Toyo R888’s if I remember correctly) and needed to have the alignment set correctly to dial in more camber during... [Read More]
