  1. 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.

    Porsche Taycan

  4. 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:
  5. If you are in the market for a sports car, this is one of the best time to get one as there are plenty of fresh choices around. See how the perform in a drag race together. Shot by Carwow, we have four cars in this race with the first one being the 365bhp Porsche Cayman GTS with a turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-four as its powertrain. It is the default class leader and is expected to win but with a 394bhp Audi TT RS Roadster included in the test, it might have its work cut out. Of course, we have to have the Toyota Supra included in the test and with a 3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six that is believed to be underrated at 335bhp, it should not do too bad. Lastly, the guys at Carwow threw in a tuned Alpine A110 as a wild card but with 'only' 300bhp thanks to Litchfield, it looks like it would be last in the race. Or would it be...
  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. 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!
  8. 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.
  9. Porsche has been testing for quite some time now the new GT4 version of the 718 Cayman. And it appears that there will be more six-cylinder models coming to the mid-engine Boxster and Cayman range. According to Carscoops, Porsche has been spotted at the 'Ring with a 718 Boxster and Cayman and they sounded different from the four-cylinder turbocharged units present in the current 718 lineup. Other than the upcoming track-focused GT4, Porsche might be installing the same 4.0-liter flat-six unit from the 911 GT3 into “Touring” versions of the Spyder and GT4 models respectively. Porsche has worked hard and managed to make the naturally aspirated flat-six compliant with the latest Euro 6d emission regulations without sacrificing power. Reports have suggested that the Cayman GT4 and Boxster Spyder will put out around 425bhp while the Touring models will get it with around 380bhp.
  10. 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!
  11. 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.

    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?
  14. 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.

  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.”

    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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Hi friends As above. I'm considering a BMW 740i 3-litre or a Porsche Panamera 3-litre. Any comments? I also welcome any other suggestions. Thank you in advance.
  21. Honestly, I can't tell that it is a new gen Cayenne with just a quick glance at the photos, too evolutionary imo. Like many I am guessing that Dieselgate is hitting hard on VAG and budget cut on the development of newer Porsche model are evident... The new SUV will be officially unveiled tonight / tomorrow morning. Stay tune for more updates.
  22. Hi everyone, per topic, was at Stuttgart for a holiday. Per title, will be sharing some of my experiences during the trip. All photos were taken with my iPhone camera, so I do apologise if the quality is not up to standard. Nothing eventful on the first day, arrived at Frankfurt and took a train down to the main station of Stuttgart, approx. 1hr 20min. For those who are unfamiliar, look out for the 'Long distance trains' sign at the airport, which will bring you to the platform, which looks something like this Reached Stuttgart main station, rather old building, constructed in the early 1910s till early 1930s I believe. the entrance to the ticket hall headed to my airbnb apartment thereafter, theres a vantage point nearby where you can get quite a nice view of the city center will update the rest as soon as I can, cheers
  23. This is my general observation. Seems that Maserati and especially Porsche are getting quite common on the roads nowadays. Singapore must be having more and more rich people everydays.
