Porsche 911 Turbo S Edition 918 Spyder

March 22, 2011 at 3:56 pm

Porsche has just announced sales of the ultra-futuristic 918 Spyder which costs nearly 850,000 USD and will take up to November 2013 to reach its customers. But those who buy one will be given the chance to also purchase the Porsche 911 Turbo S Edition 918 Spyder, a special edition of the 911 Turbo S inspired by the 918 cues inside and out. That is apparently to make customers busy until 2013 when they finally get their hybrid super sport car. Now because the 918 is so expensive one might think it would be very generous of Porsche to give or at least borrow the 911 to the customers, but no they are asking 175 grand for the coupe and [...]

Porsche Upgrades 911 GT3 R Hybrid To Version 2.0

March 17, 2011 at 9:18 pm

As the first company to officially use a hybrid vehicle in a race, Porsche is now after the first victory. Last year at the Nurburgring 24-hour race the 911 GT3 R Hybrid showed a great performance but had to retire very close to the end of the race due to a technical difficulty. The new version 2.0 should be alright though! The upgraded edition which will compete at this year’s event is thoroughly revised and optimized for better reliability and also efficiency. The focus here was not particularity on making the car faster. Instead they made it more fuel efficient which is actually more important in endurance racing than speed! It means the car can do more laps with each [...]

Porsche 911 Black

January 27, 2011 at 7:33 pm

If the regular Porsche 911 doesn’t float your boat anymore, there’s a new version out which is a tiny bit different. It’s called the Porsche 911 Black Edition and it features lots of black stuff! It starts with the exterior color which can be in metallic as well, and the 19-inch borrowed form Turbo model. The black theme continues inside where it’s complimented by aluminum accents. The car also comes with “Black Edition” badges and black lettering. As for the performance, there’s no difference between this and the Carrera S. It gets the same 3.8 liter flat-six with 345 hp output, 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds, the Cabriolet in 5.1 seconds, and top speed of 289 [...]

2011 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS

September 16, 2010 at 10:46 am

There’s a new edition of the Porsche 911 out and as it’s the case with all new 911s, it looks exactly the same as the rest of the range! It’s called the 911 GTS and apparently designed for those who think the Carrera S is too weak but the GT3 is too strong and want something in between. So the GTS comes with 408 hp and it slots between the two perfectly in terms of the speed and also price. While there’s some new exterior features, they’re not very significant. You do get 19-inch centre-locking RS Spyder alloy wheels, painted in black with high-gloss finished rims, which is nice and the car comes with Carrera4 wide rear0end as well. The [...]
