The 2012 Porsche 911 was just announced a couple weeks ago and tuners are already beginning to develop mods for the car. Russian tuner TopCar has revealed it’s Porsche 991 Widebody Kit consisting of a new front spoiler with LED daytime running lights and a spoiler lip, a new bonnet, wider fenders and new side sills and a new rear bumper with an integrated diffuser. The widebody kit is made from carbon clothing and Kevlar.
TECHART presents the GTStreet RS based on the Porsche 911 GT2 RS at the IAA. It is the most powerful car which has ever left the workshop in Leonberg. The super sports car fascinates with an impressive performance of 530 kW (720 HP) and 900 Nm torque in combination with an unmistakable characteristic body kit.
Pics of Porsche’s next generation 911 have been leaked on the net. The 2012 Porsche 911 will feature a slightly elongated profile, the result of a 2.2-inch increase in overall length. Full details on engine specs and such will be available next month when the car makes it debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
Porsche releases one final variant of the 997 before debuting the next generation 911. The 911 GT3 RS 4.0 based on the GT3 RSR track car, will boast a four liter engine that produces 500 horsepower, helping to launch the car from 0-62 in just 3.9 seconds. This performance machine will be limited to just 600 units worldwide.
After outstanding customer response to the concept car first shown at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, Porsche today announced that dealers around the world will begin taking 918 Spyder customer orders. This is a significant step toward actual production of the company’s next super sports car, a Porsche that marries unique plug-in hybrid technology and outstanding performance in a visually stunning and purely Porsche package.
The 918 Spyder will feature a high revving 500-plus horsepower V8 engine assisted by two electric motors with a total of at least 218 horsepower, yet Porsche estimates it will consume only 3.0 L/100 km based on the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Official EPA fuel economy figures or estimates will be announced just before the first customer cars begin arriving in the United States near the end of 2013.
Merdad has announced plans to introduce a coupe conversion package for the Porsche Cayenne Turbo. Available for the previous and current generation, the package will feature an aggressive body kit with revised fascias, new side skirts, and massive wheels.
Under the hood, Merdad will modify the twin-turbo 4.8-liter V8 engine to produce 750 PS (552 kW / 740 bhp) – an increase of 250 PS (184 kW / 247 bhp). While no performance specifications have been released, the Merdad Cayenne should be able to rocket from 0-60 mph in less than 4.4 seconds.
The aim: to surpass the 911 GT2. The method: Porsche Intelligent Performance. The result: the new 911 GT2 RS. Not a muscle too few. Not a gram too much. How it feels? As you can see in this video, that’s difficult to describe. To sum it up in one word: “Awe.”
The Porsche 918 Spyder prototype combines high-tech racing features and electro-mobility to offer a fascinating range of qualities: An emission level of just 70 grams CO2 per kilometre on fuel consumption of three litres/100 kilometres (equal to 94 mpg imp) truly outstanding even for an ultra-compact city car, on the one hand, combined with the performance of a super sports car and acceleration from a standstill to 100 km/h in just under 3.2 seconds, top speed of 320 km/h (198 mph) plus, and a lap time on the Nordschleife of Nürburgring in less than 7:30 minutes, faster than even the Porsche Carrera GT, on the other.
Porsche has revealed its next generation Porsche Cayenne SUV ahead of its official debut at the Geneva motor show on March 2. The new range boasts an improvement in fuel economy of up to 23 per cent with more performance, as well as new dynamic exterior styling which echoes the Porsche Panamera. Having been put on a strict diet during its development, the new Porsche Cayenne range is up to 180kg lighter than the equivalent predecessor. The highlight of the new model line-up is the introduction of a Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid variant which features a full hybrid drive train which combines the performance of a V8 with the fuel economy of a V6.
Stronger, wider, faster – the new version of the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup offers its many customers the world over even greater value than ever before. The successor to the best-selling racing car of all time built in a production series of more than 1,400 units is based for the first time on the 911 GT3 RS, with the weight of the racing model reduced significantly versus the lightweight road-going version.
This is the first GT3 Cup to feature the 44-millimetre (1.73″) wider body at the rear, providing sufficient space for even larger wheels. Wider wheel arches also at the front clearly show that the front wheels are likewise new.
Engine capacity is up by 0.2 litres over the former model, engine output is 30 bhp more than before. The most important facts and figures: 3.8-litre six-cylinder horizontally-opposed power unit developing 450 bhp (331 kW), sequential six-speed manual gearbox, weight 1,200 kg (2,646 lb), racing version of the 911 GT3 RS.
Delivering even more engine power, offering lower weight, and featuring shorter transmission ratios as well as body and suspension elements upgraded to an even higher standard, the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS sets the foundation for homologating the racing version of the 911 GT3 and therefore offers everything it takes for ongoing success on the race track, continuing the series of absolutely uncom-
promising, sporting 911s homologated for the road.
The heart of the new 911 GT3 RS, the power unit, is based on the engine already featured in the 911 GT3. Like the latter, the RS power unit now displaces 3.8 instead of 3.6 litres, delivering even more power and revving up even faster and more dynamically.
The engine featured in the new 911 GT3 RS delivers 15 bhp more than its counterpart in the 911 GT3, that is maximum output of 450 horse-power from the fast-revving naturally-aspirated power unit. This means specific output of more than 118 bhp per litre from the six-cylinder, an extremely high figure for natural-aspiration technology even in the strict-est worldwide comparison. And unlike many other high-performance engines, the power unit in the new 911 GT3 RS remains fully suitable for everyday use.
How do you make a meaner version of the Mirage GT? Well, you add a matte black paint job, blue Alcantara interior trimmings, and a sinister V10 engine capable of 670 horsepower and 630 Nm of torque. Performance stats include 0-100 km/h time of 3.7 seconds, a 0-200 km/h (124 mph) time of 9.7 seconds, and a top speed of 335 km/h (208 mph). The Gemballa Mirage GT Matt Edition will be sold in extremely limited numbers with a price tag of roughly $420,000.
Just in case a stock Porsche Carrera GT isn’t good enough for you, Porsche tuner Gemballa has just released a glimpse of their latest creation, the Gemballa Mirage GT Carbon Edition. Details are limited but we do know that this beast has an output of 670bhp that yields a top speed of 208mph.
Give Porsche €380,000 – roughly $494,000 USD, and you can be the owner of a 2009 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR. Powered by a six-cylinder 4.0-litre engine mated to a 6-speed sequential gearbox, this insane beast proves its badness by generating nothing less than 450hp (331kW) and 430Nm of torque.
I’ll take two please. After I win the lotto that is.
