    2. Hey all, I am doing a survey to understand more about the local luxury car rental market, and will appreciate your help with the poll above and comments. Will you rent a Porsche 911 (Type 997) or an Audi R8 (V8) for the above prices? Thanks in advance! Here are some photos of the respective cars: Audi R8 (picture below shoule be a V10 model but the V8 model is similar looking): Porsche 911:
    3. Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo Spotted, Brings Wagons Into The Electric Era Porsche is continuing the development of the Taycan Cross Turismo, the electric model’s upcoming wagon variant, at the Nurburgring. The long-roof version of the electric Porsche Taycan was seen being driven quite hard on the German track, with the test car said to be the range-topping Turbo S model because of the characteristic wheel design. Despite Porsche having already revealed the Taycan in full production guise, the Cross Turismo model still retains most of the plastic cladding on its body, including the fake headlight and roof line covers. Porsche’s intentions of adding a second bodystyle to the Taycan range became official back in 2018 with the reveal of the Cross Turismo concept, which posed as a crossover-styled wagon featuring extra body cladding and a raised ground clearance. Customers will be offered pretty much the same powertrain options with the regular Taycan, which as of now starts from the base 4S, the 4S Performance Battery Plus, the Turbo and the Turbo S models. All versions feature two electric motors, one per axle, for all-wheel drive and a two-speed transmission mounted at the back. Performance should be on par with the regular Taycan, which on the range-topping Turbo S version offers up to 750 HP (761 PS) and 774 lb-ft (1,050 Nm) of torque on overboost, along with a neck-snapping 0-60 mph in 2.6 seconds (0-100km/h in 2.8) and a top speed of 161 mph (260 km/h). As with almost every wagon variant available in the market, the upcoming Taycan Cross Turismo is expected to offer a much more practical (and larger) luggage space, together with slightly more room for the heads of rear passengers. The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo is expected to launch in the end of 2020, and if you find yourself wondering how the final product will look like, just take a look at the 2018 concept.

    5. The new Porsche 911 has arrived and British YouTube channel, Carwow has managed to gather the new 992 and its rivals together for a drag race. As per most of its races that it does, the cars will go through a quarter mile race, followed by a rolling race and a braking test from 112km/h. With a zero to hundred sprint time of 3.4 seconds for the new Porsche, the near entry-level 911 Carrera 4S is no slouch. Despite having only 443bhp vs its much more powerful rivals like the 611bhp Audi R8 Performance, the race is closer than you think. Watch how well the Porsche did in the video below!
    6. Jonny Smith of The Fully Charged Show has been given the chance to behind the wheel of the new first Porsche all electric car - the Taycan. Set to go into production in September, Porsche has already collected 20,000 orders for the car. As for the drive at an airfield, Porsche wanted to show show off the Taycan’s ability to pull consecutive launches from zero to 200km/h and be able to sustain its straight-line performance, even after 30 back-to-back launches. FYI, its sprint to 200km/h takes less than 10 seconds thanks to a combined output of over 600bhp from its motors. Top speed is limited to 250km/h while its century sprint is in the lows 3 seconds range. While its sprinting timings isn’t as fast as, say, a Tesla’s, Porsche preferred a more stable performance instead of participating in the headline-grabbing numbers’ game. The range-topping Taycan, which will probably be named 'Turbo', can go more than 500km on a full charge thanks to its liquid-cooled 96kWh battery pack. The batteries can also be charged till 80 percent full in about 40 minutes. In the near future, buyers will be able to choose from lesser powered variants featuring one electric motor and rear-drive at a lower price range.
    7. Despite selling approximately 25,000 units of 911s and 718s annually, Porsche claims that it only makes 2 identical sports car every year. This an interesting surprise as Autocar found out when it had the opportunity to sit down with Porsche plant manager Christian Friedl for an interview. Of course, this fact is a testament to the personalization options Porsche has for its buyers. With up to 39 variants of the 911 and 718 Boxster/Cayman models on the market, customers can pick whatever they need and dress it up with the near countless possible combinations of colours and trims. It isn't enough for Porsche though as it intends to launch even more options for its vehicles and, before long, it is possible that every single car rolling off the production line will be distinct from all others.
    8. A photo of the upcoming 992 generation Porsche 911 Turbo has been leaked onto the internet. Could this be the real thing? As seen on Carscoops and leaked thanks to Instagram user t_schleicher, the new 911 flagship has been revealed unofficially. Not much is known about the car yet but the new generation is expected to use a revised and more powerful version of the current 3.8-litre flat-six engine. Power output is expected to be around 600bhp with the Turbo S variant to get another 30bhp more. The cars will be all-wheel drive as usual and will get new eight-speed PDK transmission. Interestingly, there are talks of electrification in the car. If these rumors come true, the new 911 they can follow a similar strategy with the Panamera and get a Turbo S E-Hybrid variant with huge amounts of power.
    9. Hi all, I seldom post a lot and am currently looking to change my ride. I'd like to seek opinions from bros and automotive aficionados here on the above mentioned 3 models of SUV. I know all 3 are rather different in terms of branding or engine power or even comfort levels, but due to my limited knowledge on the available SUVs in this price range 300k+/-, these are the 3 that I can think of. I'm torn between these 3 for my next purchase and would like to find out more the pros and cons of the above 3. Am currently driving an Audi so thinking of changing to something fresh too. Would like to seek some opinions and reviews from bros here especially those who own the above 3 makes to share a little more into it. And also to find out which would be a better buy. Thanks in advance, and looking forward to your reviews and advise, cheers!

      2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupé

      Porsche is extending its Cayenne family. An even sportier vehicle has been added to the third generation of this highly successful SUV range - the Porsche Cayenne Coupé. "The Coupé includes all the technical highlights of the current Cayenne, but has an even more dynamic design and new technical details that position it as more progressive, athletic, and emotional," says Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG. The highlights of the new Cayenne model include sharper lines with a totally unique rear section, an adaptive rear spoiler, a rear bench with the characteristics of two individual seats, and two different roof concepts - a panoramic fixed glass roof fitted as standard, and an optional carbon roof. A steeply sloping roof line creates unrivalled elegance Proportions that are more dynamic combine with custom design elements to lend the new Cayenne Coupé an unrivalled elegance. "The significantly more steep roof line that falls away to the rear makes the Cayenne Coupé appear even more dynamic, and positions it as the sportiest-looking model in the segment," says Michael Mauer, Vice President Style Porsche. That effect is supported by a roof spoiler, which accentuates the distinctive Coupé silhouette. The front windscreen and A-pillar are shallower than in the Cayenne, courtesy of a roof edge that has been lowered by around 20 millimetres. Redesigned rear doors and fenders broaden the shoulders of this vehicle by 18 millimetres, contributing to its overall muscular impression. The rear number plate is integrated into the bumper, making the vehicle seem closer to the ground. With its adaptive roof spoiler, the current Cayenne Turbo was the first SUV to feature this type of active aerodynamics. The new Porsche Cayenne Coupé picks up that ball and runs with it. On each Cayenne Coupé model, a roof spoiler is combined with a new adaptive rear spoiler as part of Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA). The spoiler - harmonically integrated into this model's silhouette - extends by 135 mm at speeds of 90 km/h and up, increasing the contact pressure on the rear axle, while PAA simultaneously enhances efficiency. Large panoramic fixed glass roof fitted as standard, with a carbon roof option The Porsche Cayenne Coupé comes with a 2.16 m2 panoramic fixed glass roof as standard. The 0.92 m2 glazed area gives all passengers an extraordinary sense of space, while the integrated roller blind protects against sun exposure and cold. A contoured carbon roof is optionally available for the Coupé on request. The centre seam gives the roof the characteristic look of a sports car, similar to the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The carbon roof is available in one of the three lightweight sports packages. These packages also include the Sport Design features and new, weight-reduced 22-inch GT Design wheels, seat centres in classic checked fabric, and carbon and Alcantara accents in the interior. For the Cayenne Turbo Coupé, the package also includes a sports exhaust system. Comfort on the road with four sports seats The new Cayenne Coupé offers plenty of space for up to four people as standard. At the front, the new eight-way sports seats with integrated head rests offer exceptional comfort and optimum lateral support. In the rear, the Coupé comes fitted as standard with a rear bench that has the characteristics of two individual seats. Alternatively, the comfort rear seats - a familiar feature of the Cayenne - can be ordered at no additional cost. Rear passengers sit 30 millimetres lower than in the Cayenne, meaning there is plenty of headroom despite the vehicle's sporty lowered silhouette. The boot capacity is 625 litres - ideal for everyday use - and rises to 1,540 litres when the rear seats are folded down (Cayenne Turbo Coupé: 600 to 1,510 litres). Market launch with 340 PS and 550 PS turbocharged engines The highly dynamic lines and custom design elements of the new Porsche Cayenne Coupé truly set it apart from the Cayenne. At the same time, it benefits from all the technical highlights of the third model generation, which features powerful drive systems, innovative chassis systems, a digitalised display and operating concept, and comprehensive connectivity. Two high-performance engines are available at market launch. The Porsche Cayenne Coupé with six-cylinder turbocharged engine and displacement of three litres delivers 250 kW (340 PS) and maximum torque of 450 Nm. The Sport Chrono Package fitted in series-production vehicles achieves the standard sprint from 0-100 km/h in 6.0 seconds, with this figure dropping to 5.9 seconds with the optional lightweight sports packages. The vehicle's top speed is 243 km/h. The top-of-the-range Porsche Cayenne Turbo Coupé goes to the starting line with a four-litre V8 engine with twin-turbo charging, 404 kW (550 PS), and maximum torque of 770 Nm. The Cayenne Turbo Coupé accelerates from a standing start to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds, and has a top speed of 286 km/h. An extensive range of equipment fitted ex works The new Porsche Cayenne Coupé is available to order now and will be in dealerships from the end of May 2019. In Germany, prices start at EUR 83,711 for the Cayenne Coupé and EUR 146,662 for the Cayenne Turbo Coupé - each including VAT and with country-specific equipment. The extensive standard equipment includes speed-sensitive Power Steering Plus, 20-inch alloy wheels, Park Assist at the front and rear including reversing camera, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), and the Sport Chrono Package.
    11. Manthey Racing's Porsche 911 GT2 RS broke the production car lap record of the Nurburgring with a time of 6:40.3 last year. Chris Harris drives it in his latest video. For those who have no idea who is Manthey Racing, it is a basically a company filled with people who can make your Porsche GT2/3 RSs even more 'RS'. Partly owned Porsche, the company prides itself as the experts of the Nurburgring and has modified the GT2 RS you see in the video even better for track use. The results are amazing as it beats cars like the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ and the McLaren P1 LM at the Green hell by more than three seconds. Shot at Portimao circuit, Chris Harris has a go in the Porsche 911 GT2 RS which has the MR Performance kit. Consisting of a trick KW coilover suspension, new endplates on the rear wing along with a different splitter, underbody panels, rear diffuser, better brake pads and new lightweight magnesium wheels, it allowed Harris to go faster than he did with the McLaren P1, the LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder.

      Chris Harris tries new Porsche 911

      The first few reviews of the new 992-generation Porsche 911 has been published online and Chris Harris's review is one of them. Shot at Hockenheim, a German racetrack, Harris drove the PDK version of the Carrera S with the manual option only available next year. In this guise, the 992 is equipped with a new 444bhp twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre flat-six. If you don't have much to do over the weekend, you can join the famous journalist in his video and see what he has to say about the new sports car. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=6&v=SjrarcM7HoY
    13. Porsche Classic has reissued more than 700 original driver’s manuals starting from the 356 all the way to the 996 generation 911. Said to be available at all dealerships worldwide, anyone who wants to get these manuals can also purchase it on their Porsche Classic online store. The documents released in the reprint includes a selection of extensive technical information, settings and practical tips, ranging from the radio unit to paint data and engine numbers. Owners of these manual can also get facts and figures of the car's dimensions, tolerances, settings for the engine and chassis, with all identification details and their position illustrated and described in detail. The reprinted booklet range also includes more than 100 warranty and maintenance booklets, as well as vehicle wallets that are true to the original. According to Porsche, they started digitizing their archive a few years ago as the original booklets get worn or misplaced. Each reprint matches the original version in terms of printing, look and quality.
    14. The new limited edition Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro is based on the regular 577bhp GT R, but adds a host of chassis improvements Mercedes has announced a new track-focused variant of the AMG GT at the 2018 Los Angeles Motor Show. Called the Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro, it arrives as a new limited edition flagship to the range, rivalling the likes of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Performance comes courtesy of the AMG GT R’s 4.0 litre V8 biturbo, producing 577bhp and 700Nm of torque. 0-62 mph is dispatched in 3.6 seconds and, flat out, the Pro will match the GT R’s top speed of 198mph. While these figures show no improvement over the standard AMG GT R, the Pro makes up for it with a host of chassis upgrades, including adjustable coil-overs, lightened torsion bars and electronically controlled dynamic engine and transmission mounts. Weight-saving tactics have been employed throughout the Pro’s construction. The roof, seats and fins are made from carbon fibre, the wheels are forged, lightweight units and the brakes are ceramic. The Pro package also features a few aerodynamic upgrades over the GT R, including a new, braced front splitter with canards, a new rear diffuser with canards and an updated rear wing; all of which are made from carbon fibre. A new active downforce system on the front splitter also claims to increase grip. For the European market, the GT R Pro comes equipped with Mercedes-AMG’s track package as standard. This adds a full steel roll-cage, four-point safety harnesses and a 2kg fire extinguisher. With all these tweaks in place, Mercedes claims that the AMG GT R Pro has completed a lap of the Nurburgring in 7.04.623 – just over five seconds quicker than the standard GT R. However, the price you’ll pay for that extra bit of performance won’t be minor.
    15. Porsche has auctioned off its one-off project a.k.a Project Gold and got back quite a lot more than expected. You could buy nearly 5 new 911 Turbos with that amount. Held at the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta as part of RM Sotheby's Porsche 70th Anniversary Auction, the car received a total of 37 bids in a span of 10 minutes and was then sold for S$4.26 million. That money buys you a full restored and updated 993 Turbo that took a year and a half to complete. Featuring more than 52,000 new parts, the car has been equipped with a 3.6-litre twin-turbo boxer six that produces 450bhp and 585Nm of torque. This is 42bhp and 45Nm more than the what the original car had back in the late 90s, thanks to new larger turbos, an additional oil cooler, Motronic engine control unit and ceramic port liners. The whole car was then painted in Golden Yellow Metallic with a Cathodic Dip Coating primer. Proceeds from the auction will go directly to the Ferry Porsche Foundation, which supports educational, research, sport, culture, and social initiatives in the Stuttgart and Leipzig.
    16. A Porsche Australia senior technical representative has revealed that its optional carbon ceramic brakes aren’t suited for hard use on the track contrary to what we thought so. We have been told many times by many manufacturers that carbon ceramic brakes can be useful for track work as they can run through multiple heat cycles without fading, thereby becoming the default choice for owners who enjoy track days. However, Which Car's interview with Porsche Australia at the launch of the 992-generation Porsche 911, brought to light that these expensive brake systems can degrade quite quickly when abused. “Yes, ceramic discs can degrade if you’re hard on the brakes. Heat build-up will degrade the carbon fibers in the disc, so if you’re doing club days we’d always recommend iron discs,” Paul Watson said. “We learned that lesson a long time back. When we first launched the discs, we told people they’d last virtually for the life of the car and people were doing a number of trackdays and coming back to us saying ‘I’ve worn them out’”, he added on. Interestingly, Watson claims that Porsche's target audience for the carbon ceramic brakes are those that don’t like cleaning their wheels because these brakes “don’t leave a build-up of brake dust.”
    17. There are more than 20 versions of the Porsche 911 currently available for sale, starting from the entry-level Carrera to near-700bhp flagship GT2 RS. So which 911 is the one most suitable for you? A coupe or a cabriolet or a targa? all-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive? Daily use or a weekend track toy? Watch the recently published video for a better understanding of what each variant can do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=293&v=cmOW_ZSGB-k

      Would you rally your new Porsche 911 GT3 RS?

      It is normal to see supercar owners treat their vehicles as pieces of gold and rarely drive them. However, someone with a Porsche 911 GT3 RS doesn't believe in such things. Not exactly a cheap car, the S$700,000 or so sports car has found itself an owner that prefers to drive the car hard. While this is not what we have in mind when we say 'hard', you can't fault the owner for not wasting the GT3 RS away in a garage with minimal miles. Likely inspired by the infamous ‘Tax The Rich’ series, this 911 can be seen going round in circles on gravel in the video below. Porsche fans might want to stay away from clicking the play button below... https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=77&v=ENHT6j5wPmA
    19. Porsche is rewarding its employees with a €9,700 (S$14,800) bonus after a successful 2018 financial year. The amount will be paid to around 25,000 people, who will receive it with their April salaries. The bonus is not specifically based on different pay levels, but set at a fixed rate. “That’s our understanding of equal opportunity; we know that every single employee in this company contributes towards its success, and our approach to these bonuses reflects that awareness,” says Andreas Haffner, Member of the Executive Board for Human Resources. According to Porsche, the bonus consists of two parts: €9,000 (S$13,700) as a performance bonus for the 2018 financial year and €700 ($1,068) as a special contribution to the VarioRente pension scheme or a personal pension fund. Porsche also gave out a similar bonus for 2017 and the year before with €9,111 (S$13,900). 2018 was a good year for Porsche as worldwide deliveries of their cars increased by 4% last year, to 256,255 units. At the same time, revenue increased by 10% and net operating profit grew by 4%.The automaker’s overall workforce rose by roughly 9%, to 32,325.

      Is the new Porsche Macan a good buy?

      The Macan is the sixth model in Porsche's lineup, and will sit just below the Cayenne in the family hierarchy. Conceived to be the 'sports car' of its segment, the new Macan embodies the sporting DNA of the Stuttgart automaker. The base variant features a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine - the smallest in Porsche's current lineup - and packs 237bhp. But at $218,888 (w/o COE), do you think the Macan 2.0 is a good buy?

      Next Porsche 911 GT3 tipped to go turbo

      It is rumored that of the end of the naturally-aspirated engines in the hardcore 911 GT3 and GT3 RS model is near and the purists' fears of the car going down the turbocharged route are about to become a reality. According to Autocar, a source that is close to Porsche Motorsport has reported that the next 911 GT3 will be using a twin-turbo engine instead of the current 4.0-litre flat-six unit. The new engine is likely going to be heavily revised variant of the twin-turbo 3.8-litre engine found in the current 911 Turbo. The next 911 GT3 is expected to produce around 513bhp, a slight bump from the current car's 493bhp. With the torque figures likely to jump quite a bit through the rev range, we wonder how the change in engine characteristic will affect the whole GT3 experience...

      These are Porsche's top five loudest cars

      Porsche is back with its series of 'Top 5' videos. The latest video showcases the five loudest Porsche models ever. With Porsche enthusiasts Jean Pierre Kraemer and Benjamin Marjanac hosting the video, the guys took a sound-level meter to the secret warehouse of the Porsche Museum in Zuffenhausen to see which is the loudest car Porsche ever built. Are there louder cars built by Porsche? Maybe, because the video only includes the cars in this particular museum. We shan't give away which car is the loudest but in comparison, the loudest car shown is louder than a thunderclap or a Military jet taking off from an aircraft carrier. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=9&v=wrKyL2KQ_OU
    23. Just before the Le Mans-winning Porsche 919 Hybrid goes into full retirement at the company’s museum, Chris Harris has a go in the car. With a total of six world championship titles sealed in total between 2015 and 2017, the 919 Hybrid has proved itself in terms of engineering and design in the racing world. With lots of downforce and a very clever 900bhp-plus hybrid powertrain, the 919 Hybrid is very effective car that tries to make it as easy as possible for the driver to consistently do fast lap times. Watch the video and see for yourself why Harris says that this is the first car he has driven that feels like its thinking its way around the circuit.
    24. Henry Catchpole, the resident journalist at Carfection has published a video review of the the Porsche 991.2 911 GT3. While he is far from being one of the first journalists to review it, we reckon he did a very good job of reviewing the car. In fact, after watching his video, we felt like we have been the ones actually driving the car! Catchpole confidently claims that its the one car that he would buy if he struck lottery. Watch the video and see why he would do so. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0d_AZbSLwQ
    25. Ever wondered what are inside the secret chambers of Porsche’s Research & Development department? Porsche has decided to come up with a list of its 'top 5' prototypes that paved the way for famous Porsche models. We won't go into the exacts on what's in that list and spoil the video for you, but we must say that we are thankful they did not build the Porsche Cayenne Cabrio. It is quite... unsightly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=19&v=hrh7nBRAoZQ
