  5. Oh no, this white Porsche Macan is going to get flamed online by neitzens everywhere with his/her brake-checking skills. Spotted on SG Road Vigilante's page is this video of a Porsche SUV that is pissed with the camera car not giving way on 30th of Nov 2020. Everything started from the junction of Upper Thompson and Braddell Road with the Porsche slowly catching up to the camera car which was going a decent speed. The Porsche then wanted to overtake on Braddell road for a few times but somehow luck was not in his way and the camera car seemed like it was blocking the SUV. With ego getting the best of the SUV driver, the Macan then a bad judgement call at Braddell Underpass, trying to cut into the camera car's lane without signal. Funny thing is throughtout the other parts of the video, the Macan did signal his intentions mostly... From then on, it then seemed like the Macan wanted to give the camera a piece of his mind and brake-checked the camera car after finally overtaking it. Was it solely the fault of the Porsche? Or was the camera car in the wrong for not giving way despite knowing the Porsche had intentions to overtake? It does take two hands to clap afterall...

    Porsche 911 GT3 (992 Generation)

    Here’s your first look at the new 992-gen Porsche 911 GT3 https://www.topgear.com/car-news/first-look/heres-your-first-look-new-992-gen-porsche-911-gt3
  7. The Rock Realizes He Can't Fit In A Porsche Taycan While On Movie Set source: https://www.motor1.com/news/454579/the-rock-cant-fit-taycan/ It’s safe to say Red Notice is a huge deal for Netflix considering it’s one of the streaming platform’s most expensive movies ever. Originally under development with Universal for a 2020 launch, the action-packed movie has a budget of nearly $188 million and will be out in 2021. It’s the first Netflix movie starring Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot, while Ryan Reynolds will be making his second appearance after starring in 6 Underground. Filming for Red Notice hasn’t exactly been smooth sailing taking into account the coronavirus pandemic put the brakes on production earlier this year. Work on the movie resumed in September, but it wasn’t without hurdles as “The Rock” took to Instagram to reveal a funny yet costly problem he had. Long story short – he couldn’t fit inside a Porsche Taycan that was brought on set to shoot a scene. The “big chase sequence” as described by the former professional wrestler took months to prepare and high production costs, which included buying a Porsche Taycan and shipping it to the film location. When the time came to shoot the scene, writer and producer Rawson Marshall Thurber (the man seen here lying on the ground in front of the car) told The Rock to hop inside the EV, only to realize his back “is a bit too wide.” The unexpected issue didn’t stop the producer and the rest of the film crew from figuring out a good angle to take the needed shot: “In the end we showed our agility to think quickly on our feet and found ‘creative’ ways to still get the shot. “ Actually, this isn’t the first time Dwayne Johnson has a problem fitting in a car, which isn’t all that surprising considering he’s 6 feet 5 inches (196 centimeters) tall. About five years ago, he complained about having an identical problem with a LaFerrari.

    Porsche's latest concept car... Is a van?

    And it's designed for space travel. Sporty six-seater anyone? Alright alright, not quite. The Porsche vision “Renndienst”, is the latest in a series of concept cars recently revealed by Porsche, and designed as a "space shuttle" with exciting proportions. With cabin space for up to six persons, Porsche must presumably be targeting the family space tourism sector, soon to get off the ground once travel restrictions are lifted, of course. With an all-electric drive located in the underbody, Porsche sportiness is also retained thanks to a centrally located driver's seat. Where would you take your family to in something like this? Of course, if roofless two-seaters are your thing, there's also this Porsche Vision Spyder, inspired by the 550-1500 RS Spyder from 1954. The Porsche Vision Spyder. Designed to "further develop the design identity of Porsche and provide a pool of ideas for future details," the concept car is described as sporting a spartan, puristic cockpit. Characteristic radiator grilles over the mid engine, red graphic elements and the suggested fins at the rear add the final exterior touches to this open top. Next special edition 718 previewed, we rekon.
  9. While @Toeknee_33 is having wet dream with the news of Mazda developing a new IL6 engine, I am drooling over this, but it will never happen, 'cos... 2013 Porsche 904 Living Legend When VW was developing the limited-edition and very frugal XL1, Porsche Design Studio was intrigued by its carbon fiber chassis and decided to use it as the basis for an ultra-light and minimalist sports car to act a modern reinterpretation of the 904 from the 1960s. Meet the 904 Living Legend concept from 2013, a member of Porsche’s Unseen collection of design studies that was released recently, out of the blue. While VW chose a carbon chassis for reasons related to unbelievable fuel economy, Porsche’s take was to create a purist’s wet dream; a small mid-engined coupe that barely weighs over 900 kg (1,984 lbs). The biggest surprise is in the engine bay where there’s no four-pot or flat-six, let alone a V8. Porsche’s engineers downsized the powertrain recipe to a V2 inherited from a motorcycle. When VW developed an XL Sport concept back in the day and it too had a V2, a 1.2-liter engine from the Ducati 1199 Superleggera. It produced 200 horsepower and revved all the way up to a screaming 12,000 rpm. To imagine the performances this Porsche 904 Living Legend would've had, we’ll remind you the 2014 XL Sport did 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 5.7 seconds and had a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h). It’s worth pointing out the VW was a tad lighter, weighing only 890 kg (1,962 lbs). The end result is a mid-engined coupe that looks effortlessly beautiful, with its clean lines and seductive curves giving it supercar-levels of presence. This could be Porsche’s answer to the Alpine A110 but unfortunately, the world has moved on since 2013.
  10. Coupé or Cabriolet? Targa: The Best of Both Worlds Porsche completes its sports car trio in time for summer: following on from the Coupé and Cabriolet, the third body variant of the new 911 generation now makes its debut with the all-wheel drive Porsche 911 Targa 4 and 911 Targa 4S models. The distinguishing feature of the Targa remains its innovative, fully automatic roof system and, just like the legendary original Targa model from 1965, it features a characteristic wide roll hoop, a movable roof section above the front seats and a wraparound rear window. The roof can be comfortably opened and closed in just 19 seconds. It is powered by a six-cylinder, three-litre boxer engine with twin turbochargers: the Porsche 911 Targa 4 now delivers 283 kW (385 PS) and, in combination with the optional Sport Chrono package, accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds - one tenth faster than before. The engine in the 911 Targa 4S boasts 331 kW (450 PS) and reaches the 100 km/h mark in just 3.6 seconds under the same conditions - four tenths faster than its predecessor. Top speed of the 911 Targa 4 is 289 km/h (up two km/h), while the 4S peaks at 304 km/h (up three km/h). Both sports cars are fitted with eight-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK) and intelligent all-wheel drive Porsche Traction Management (PTM) as standard to deliver maximum driving pleasure. Alternatively, the 911 Targa 4S can be ordered with the newly developed seven-speed manual gearbox, with which the Sport Chrono package is included. New technology has also been integrated to extend the range of features for both 911 models and, for the first time, Porsche InnoDrive, which includes adaptive cruise control, is available. Thanks to the enhanced Smartlift function, ground clearance can be programmed so that it is raised for everyday use. The list of options is supplemented by an extensive range from Porsche Tequipment and new personalisation options from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur. Porsche will further extend the combination of traditional style elements, timeless design and cutting-edge technology in a special edition of the 911 Targa, which will make its debut in June. Efficient biturbo boxer engine Like the 911 Carrera models, both Porsche 911 Targa variants profit from the increase in power provided by the turbocharged three-litre six-cylinder boxer engines. Both performance and everyday usability benefit as a result. The engine in the 911 Targa 4 produces 283 kW (385 PS) at 6,500 rpm, which is 11 kW (15 PS) more than its predecessor. Maximum torque of 450 newton metres is delivered across a wide engine speed range of between 1,950 and 5,000 rpm. With 331 kW (450 PS), the 911 Targa 4S delivers 22 kW (30 PS) more output than its predecessor and generates maximum torque of 530 Nm (up 30 Nm) between 2,300 and 5,000 rpm. Optimised all-wheel drive for better traction The enhanced performance of the new all-wheel drive models goes hand-in-hand with further development of the front-axle drive. The clutch and differential unit is water-cooled and has reinforced clutch discs for greater robustness and a higher load capacity. The increased actuating torque at the clutch improves its adjustment accuracy and the function of the additional front-axle drive. Overall, the enhanced front-axle drive with PTM (Porsche Traction Management) contributes to even better traction in all road conditions. Further developed chassis for more comfort and safety The electronically controlled variable damping system PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) is part of the standard equipment on the new 911 Targa models. This system automatically adjusts the damping characteristics in terms of driving comfort and handling to each driving situation and has two manually adjustable maps, Normal and Sport. Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus), which includes an electronic rear differential lock with fully variable torque distribution, is added as standard equipment for the Targa 4S and is available as an option on the Targa 4. Like the other eighth generation Porsche 911 variants, the Targa models are also equipped with Porsche Wet mode as standard. Sensors fitted in the front wheel housings are capable of detecting water on the road surface and, if significant volumes of water are picked up, a signal in the cockpit provides a recommendation for the driver to manually switch to Wet mode. The drive responsiveness is then adapted to the conditions to guarantee maximum driving stability. The driving dynamics setup for the 911 Targa 4 includes 235/40 ZR tyres on 19-inch alloy wheels on the front axle and 295/35 ZR tyres on 20-inch wheels on the rear axle. As standard, the 4S model is fitted with 245/35 ZR tyres on its 20-inch front wheels and 305/30 ZR tyres on its 21-inch rears. On the Targa 4, deceleration is taken care of on both axles by 330-millimetre brake discs with black four-piston monobloc fixed callipers. The red-painted brake callipers on the Targa 4S have six pistons at the front axle, four at the rear while its discs measure 350 mm front and rear. The Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) can be ordered as an option. Extravagant Targa design with a modern interpretation The exterior of the Porsche 911 Targa is characterised by the design elements of its 992 model generation. Compared to its predecessors, its body features significantly more pronounced wheel housings at the front and, between its LED headlights, its bonnet has a distinctive recess evoking the design of the first 911 generations. Its rear is dominated by its wider, variably extending rear spoiler and seamlessly integrated, elegant light bar. With the exception of the front and rear sections, the entire outer skin is made from aluminium. The interior echoes the 911 Carrera models and is characterised by the clear and straight lines of its dashboard and its recessed instruments. The 911 models from the 1970s provided the inspiration here. Alongside the central rev counter - very much a defining feature for Porsche - two thin, frameless freeform displays extend the information provided to the driver. A compact switch unit with five buttons for direct access to important vehicle functions is located below the 10.9-inch centre screen of the Porsche Communication Management (PCM). The standard PCM features include online navigation based on swarm data as well as Connect Plus with Apple Car Play. The model for a new class of sports cars since 1965 The 1965 911 Targa 2.0 was a trailblazer for a whole new type of car. Originally marketed as a "safety cabriolet with anti-roll bar", the Targa, with its detachable roof, soon established itself as an independent concept and indeed became a style icon. Right through to the present day, Porsche has continued to combine two worlds in the 911 Targa: the advantages of open-top driving in a cabriolet combined with the everyday comfort and safety of a coupé. Prices The new Porsche 911 Targa models will be launched on the market from August 2020. Prices (including 19 percent VAT and country-specific equipment) start from 128,486 euros for the 911 Targa 4 and from 143,956 euros for the 911 Targa 4S.
  11. There's no denying that cars are expensive in Singapore - you'll often find Singapore atop lists on the most expensive places to own a car in the world. So, when it comes to buying a car, price is a key factor. There's no doubt that everyone loves a bargain. Being able to save even a small amount can go a long way to making you feel a little bit better about your purchase. However, when it comes to buying a car, there's a lot more that goes into the decision than simply a race to the bottom, price-wise. Cheaper isn't necessarily better. Beyond the price tag, here are four additional things that you should consider when buying a car. 1. Complimentary warranty with the option of purchasing extended warranty Buying from an Authorised Dealer (AD) is generally more expensive, but included in that higher price tag is a warranty package, usually anywhere between five to seven years, and that usually also includes a servicing package. Having that warranty is important - while no one plans for something serious to go wrong with their car, you definitely want to be comprehensively covered should an unfortunate situation arise. Knowing that you can return to the AD who has the necessary expertise and genuine parts, provides you a complete peace of mind. All Porsche cars come with a complimentary maintenance and servicing package that includes regular wear and tear. Additionally, all cars come with a comprehensive five year warranty, with the option of picking up an extended warranty of up to 15 years, only available at Porsche Centre Singapore. 2. Highly trained sales and after sales professionals When it comes to servicing your vehicle, quality comes at a price. Yes, you can find the cheapest option, but you're certainly comprising on quality. Proper maintenance of your car is important for safety, as well as ensuring the long-term longevity and reliability of the car, delivering driving pleasure for years to come. With an AD, you can be sure of highly qualified technicians that have the most modern and up-to-date equipment and software updates necessary for dealing with modern, high-tech cars. Porsche Centre Singapore has one of the first electric-ready workshops in Southeast Asia, with dedicated high-voltage certified technicians, specifically to handle the all-electric Porsche Taycan. All the technicians are also regularly recertified and trained to maintain vehicles in accordance to global quality and safety standards. And, when it comes to a high-performance vehicle like a Porsche, you want to be able to get the best out of the experience. With intensive training to be qualified to service customers and deliver a top-notch purchase experience, the Porsche Sales Consultants are capable of guiding you on how to best use your vehicle. 3. Exclusive benefits and experiences When buying a car, especially with a premium brand, you are also buying into a set of exclusive experiences and a particular lifestyle. Beyond just the car, you also gain access to unique experiences and opportunities you wouldn't be able to attain elsewhere. These experiences can range from exclusive invites to various events and drives, as well as exclusive benefits from the brand and its partners. 4. Higher resale value When you decide it's time to move on to your next car, having a vehicle with a comprehensive dealer-certified service history, backed by the trusted reputation of the brand, will undoubtedly raise its resale value. With a highly detailed servicing history, as well as the assurance of genuine replacement parts used, any potential buyer will have no doubts as to the integrity and reliability of your vehicle. And of course, you also have the option of upgrading to a newer model and trading in your current vehicle with the AD.

    Porsche Cayenne

    Am recently tickled (just tickled only) by the idea of changing to perhaps an SUV due to new addition to the family soon. Anyone got experience with second hand Porsche Cayenne?
  13. May i know following for 10yr+ 987.2 Boxster Tip: 1. Annual maintenance cost 2. Cost to replace IMS bearings and rear main seal? Thanks in advance!
  14. https://www.torque.com.sg/news/porsche-singapore-introduces-solo-test-drives/ Porsche Singapore has introduced unaccompanied test drives and contactless servicing in light of the ongoing pandemic. The two new initiatives are meant to help protect customers by minimising contact with salespersons and service staff. TEST DRIVE A PORSCHE ALONE In order to set up an unaccompanied test drive, customers will first speak to a sales consultant via a WhatsApp video call. During the call, the consultant will highlight the key features of the vehicle before confirming the solo test drive appointment. To qualify, drivers must be at least 24 years old and be able to provide a refundable security deposit. According to Porsche Singapore, the security deposit ranges from $20,000 to $40,000. Upon completing the necessary forms, customers will be able to drive the car alone for 30 minutes. Porsche Singapore says this initiative began with the Cayenne Coupe, and that it is working to expand the lineup to include models such as Macan, Panamera and 911 Carrera. DOORSTEP SERVICE Porsche is also making maintenance even more convenient for customers with their contactless servicing programme. Once a service appointment has been arranged, Porsche will collect the customer’s vehicle from his or her chosen location. The car will be returned once the maintenance work is completed. Contactless servicing for annual maintenance/repairs is complimentary. However, this only applies during the five years from the vehicle’s registration date.
  15. Porsche 3D Printing Engine Piston Technology 3D printing technology is already used at Porsche in prototype construction, manufacturing spare parts for classic sports cars as well as in other areas. In cooperation with its partners Mahle and Trumpf, the sports car manufacturer is now establishing a new milestone in the use of additive manufacturing processes for highly-stressed drive components – for the first time, the pistons for the high-performance engine of the 911 flagship model, the GT2 RS, are now also being produced with a 3D printer. 3D printing allows the pistons to be manufactured with a structure that is optimised for the loads acting on the pistons. As a result, the pistons from the advance development project weigh ten percent less than the forged series production pistons. They also have an integrated and closed cooling duct in the piston crown that could not have been produced by conventional methods. “Thanks to the new, lighter pistons, we can increase the engine speed, lower the temperature load on the pistons and optimise combustion,” explains Frank Ickinger from the advance drive development department at Porsche. “This makes it possible to get up to 30 hp more power from the 690 hp twin-turbo engine, while at the same time improving efficiency.”
  16. https://www.topgear.com/car-news/motorsport/legendary-porsche-engineer-hans-mezger-has-died Hans Mezger, the legendary Porsche engineer, has passed away aged 90. Mezger was born in a small village near Porsche’s hometown of Stuttgart in 1929. He started working for the company in 1956 after graduating from what is now the University of Stuttgart, having avoided being enlisted by the German military just weeks before the end of World War Two. He wouldn’t retire until 1993. Mezger was part of Porsche’s first Formula One programme in 1960. Soon after he developed the 901 air-cooled flat-six that powered the first-generation 911, and would inform the design of all 911 engines until the water-cooled 996. Then in 1965 he was put in charge of “race car design”, where he was ultimately tasked with winning Le Mans… The result was the 917 – Mezger was responsible for its “overall construction”, and the chief architect of its flat-12, which would go on to produce over 1,000bhp in the turbocharged Can-Am cars. Mezger got into turbocharging in a big way in 1974 when he began sticking blowers on 911s. The Can-Am 917s and 911 RSR influenced the road-going 911 Turbo, which in turn led to the turbo’d flat-six that would power the 935, 956 and 962 among others and bring Porsche many, many race wins. When Porsche fans talk about the ‘Mezger engine’, they’re usually referring to the water-cooled flat-six developed for the 996 and 997-era 911 GT3, GT2 and Turbo. Though these cars came out years after Mezger retired, this engine can trace its roots right the way back to his race-winning flat-sixes of the Seventies. The last 911 to use this engine was the epic 997 GT3 RS 4.0. Despite all of that, Mezger said the project he was most proud of was the 1.5-litre turbocharged V6 Porsche developed for the McLaren Formula One team in the Eighties. It won 25 races, two Constructors’ Championships and three Drivers’ Championships (one for Nicki Lauda in 1984, and two for Alain Prost in ’85 and ’86). Michael Steiner, Porsche’s R&D and motorsport boss, said: “We thank Hans Mezger for his extraordinary engineering achievements, which he has done for motorsport in general and for Porsche in particular. His innovations for our series sports cars will remain unforgotten forever.”
  17. Porsche's track app uses CarPlay to show lap data while you drive source: https://www.engadget.com/porsche-track-precision-app-carplay-190318394.html There’s no guarantee you’ll find a race track to drive during the pandemic, but Porsche will be ready whenever you can hit the course. It recently updated its Track Precision app for iOS (via Autoblog) with CarPlay support to make lap data much more convenient. Instead of perching your iPhone on a mount, you only have to use your sports car’s touchscreen to record laps, get lap time predictions and compare your real-time results against a reference. There are some added perks if you happen to wear an Apple Watch. It’ll now vibrate to let you know when you’ve broken a personal lap record, and you can even record your heart rate if you’re wondering just how tense you were during that hairpin turn. The feature isn’t available for Android Auto yet, although that’s not surprising given that Porsche only recently began adding Google’s platform to its cars. All Track Precision users should see 100 new tracks added to the pre-defined list, giving you 300 courses around the world with accurate mapping data. You can create custom maps using your phone’s GPS if a local circuit isn’t available yet. The updated app is free, although you’ll need to meet fairly specific requirements to use it. You’ll not only need a Boxster, Cayman, 911 or GT car with at least Porsche Communication Management 4.0, you’ll need both the Connect Plus and Sport Chrono Package add-ons. If you’re in that position, though, you may have just what you need to improve your performance without either an elaborate phone setup or dedicated telemetry gear.
  18. Porsche Offers Modern Infotainment Systems For Classic 911 Models source: https://www.motor1.com/news/414490/porsche-modern-infotainment-classic-models/ First-generation Boxsters can get an upgrade, too. There’s no denying that Porsche has some of the most passionate auto fans in the world. Credit for that legacy certainly falls to the 911 – these owners love their cars and they love to drive them, be it a new 911 Turbo S or a classic air-cooled model from decades past. A few years back, Porsche Classic offered a neat upgrade for classic 911 owners in the form of a single-din infotainment system, bringing fresh tech to old classics. Now, Porsche Classic has updated that design and created a super-sized expansion with a new double-din unit. Called Porsche Classic Communication Management (PCCM), the newest offerings bring more tech options to old models with a single-din space in the dash, or straight-up modern tech to "young classics" starting with the 996 generation that have double-din systems. Regardless of the size, both systems offer Apple CarPlay, DAB +, and Bluetooth connectivity as well as navigation features. The larger double-din unit is called PCCM Plus. It’s designed to be a plug-and-play system that works with existing controls in the car, while also offering touchscreen functionality through a 7-inch screen. The upgraded technology for PCCM Plus also means those young classics drivers can take advantage of Porsche’s latest navigation systems with Porsche points-of-interest and route guidance. It’s not just for the 911 either – Porsche says this unit will work in the first-generation Boxster as well. The upgraded single-din design for older Porsches isn't quite as capable, but it still offers impressive capability for its size. In addition to navigation functions, the new PCCM offers DAB + and Apple CarPlay capability as well as a 3.5-inch touch-sensitive display. Primary functions are controlled through rotary knobs and integrated buttons, with the overall design mimicking classic Porsche stereo systems as closely as possible. The upgraded PCCM single-din unit is now available at a cost of €1,439.89 ($1,551). The larger double-din PCCM Plus model sells for €1,606.51 ($1,731). Both are available at Porsche centers or online in the Porsche Classic shop. Source: Porsche

  21. Some Dutch Engineering Students Built This Mid-Engine Shooting Brake From An Old Boxster Source: https://flatsixes.com/cars/porsche-boxster/some-dutch-engineering-students-built-this-mid-engine-shooting-brake-from-an-old-boxster/?fbclid=IwAR0Uk2nBKdPTcxw9wFFsvkeVBmBIwiG3ROAT-ksdb0_eBXoNBFXqEnLxOzA Four students at the Fontys Minor Motorsport Engineering school in the Netherlands have built the car that Porsche is afraid to because it has too much awesome in one package. Porsche's Boxster and Cayman are already amazing platforms, and are quite easy to live with on a daily basis. I daily drove a Boxster for several years, and it served quite well. But if you have to carry more than a briefcase or a duffel bag, you might be hard pressed to find space for it in Porsche's mid-engine platform. That's why these students built what amounts to a Cayman Shooting Brake, and it is so incredibly great. I wish Porsche would build something like this right now. The students began with a fresh 986 Boxster for the project because it's an inexpensive and reliable platform to modify. It's a well balanced chassis with great handling and a superb flat-six engine. Because the car is already an open-top design, the chassis itself is stiff enough to accept a hard top without issue. The team of engineering students worked with Van Thull Development to develop this car's composite bodywork. Up front, the car is fitted with 997 GT3 carbon bodywork, including a headlight update and new lightweight materials. Out back the car makes use of 991-style tail lights and a custom bumper and fascia. The rear hatch and roof assembly come from a Peugeot! The finished product looks fabulous, especially with the Miami Blau paint and black accent. This car looks like it could be a factory-built special edition for folks who enjoy Grand Touring across Europe with a full bevvy of equipment. The best part is that Van Thull is already working on building this as a kit for your own Boxster hatchback conversion. Pretty cool if you ask me. Maybe I'll order one.
  22. Porsche 3D-Printed Bodyform Bucket Seat source: https://uncrate.com/porsche-3d-printed-bodyform-bucket-seat/ Presented as a concept study with a clear eye on future availability, Porsche has created what it's calling a "3D-printed bodyform full-bucket seat". It incorporates a central section — the seat and backrest cushions — made partly using a 3D printer. The base support of expanded polypropylene is bonded to a breathable comfort layer made from a mixture of polyurethane-based materials using a 3D printer, with three firmness levels available. An outer skin of perforated "Racetex" allows for climate control, while window panels provide a view of the 3D printed lattice structure underneath. The seat will be available to 40 911 and 718 track drivers as early as May, while street-legal versions should be available from mid-2021. Depending on customer interest, the company may also incorporate further customization, with seats adapted to the individual customer's specific body contours.
