Porsche has unveiled its limited edition 2010 911 Sport Classic prior to its Frankfurt debut. Under the hood of the 911 Sport Classic you will find a six-cylinder 3.8L, 408 hp engine. Courtesy of this engine, The Carrera S based car is able to pelt from 0 to 100Km/h in 4.6 seconds and tops it out at 302Km/h. As far as the fuel consumption is concerned it achieves 26.6mpg (which is great for such a car) when calculated according to the New European Driving Cycle. This is an exclusive model when it comes to possessing the six-speed manual transmission. As a limited edition model only 250 of these Classics will be produced and will go on sale in January next year. As far as the pricing is concerned it will have a Euro base price of €169,300 and this is excluding VAT.
If you’re going to be present at next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show, our suggestion is to check out the Porsche Corner as the Germans will have a race car on show. The factory race car is based on the 911 GT3 RS and is powered by a horizontally-opposed 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine which produces a commendable 450 hp at 8,500 rpm. Even though there are no official numbers, this configuration is good enough to help the car pelt from 0 to 100km/h in less than four seconds and the overall top speed should be somewhere around 314km/h. The only color choice available will be Carrera White and it will be priced around €149,850.
Anything that bears a Porsche moniker is eagerly awaited by the auto fanatics across the globe and the next in line is the Limited Edition Porsche 911 C4S based widebody Supersport. The Supersport will come next year with a duck-tail spoiler and double-bubble roof. The offering will not be as hardcore as the GT3 or the GT3 RS but it will still retain the Carrera 4S widebody.
As far as categorization goes, it will be considered as a grand touring car. Other than the ducktail spoiler and the double-bubble roof, there will be Fuchs-style wheels and a primer gray colored paint job. On the Inside will be some retro inspiration with a brown leather interior. The engine variants are not known as yet but what is known is the astounding price demand of $222,223.
Porsche 911 GT2 is powerful and expensive, but not for the wicked tuners from Wimmer RS. Recently they came out with a performance tunning package that will cost a rich guy some €29,800. This little monster now includes a software modified win-turbo 3.6-liter boxer engine, redesigned cylinder heads and high performance camshafts. All these for a whopping 680 hp and 870 Nm of torque that takes the Wimmer 911 GT2 from naught to 100 km/h in only 3.4 seconds forward to a top speed of 356 km/h. As for the exterior, there aren’t any big changes. Only a carbon fiber rear lip spoiler, carbon fiber mirror housings, 20-inch Sportec wheels, and a lowered suspension. [via Auto Motor und Sport]
It would be hard to imagine leaving your Porsche 911 with its keys at a place like circuit City for an audio installation, but that is the exact insanity that Luke Liang committed at the New Jersey Circuit City store. He paid a pretty hefty price for it though as a tempted Brian Murphy, employee at the store, took it out for a joyride and wrecked the car’s suspension, tires and caused enough damage to make the mending bills hit $50,000. So, why not sue the store you ask? Well, if you have been living under a rock, then Circuit City has filed for bankruptcy long back and a claim of that amount is something that they surely cannot afford. Now, that is what you pay for being stupid, isn’t it? [via Autoblog]
Now why would anyone in the world be jealous of the Dutch? Well because they are exclusively bringing home 15 (fifteen) Pon Edition 911 4S Porsches— and that luxury will not be available for the rest of the world. The first in the world to import Porsche models, way back in 1949, the Dutch will commemorate 60 years since the special moment and Porsche will craft 15 splendid cars for that reason. With a diamond-black metallic paint, a leather interior, the old 1949 Porsche badge, sports exhaust and the Porsche name etched on the engine cover, each of the Pons will be numbered. Available for prices ranging from €172,911 to €188,261 (depending on whether it’s the Coupe or the Cabriolet), we’d sure love to make that tiger roar. [via WCF]
If you know someone that owns a Porsche 911 Turbo and says he’d like it to be more powerful or to look even fancier, then I need to have a word with him. For most of us, just owning one would be a great honor, but for those that can afford one, it may not. For these guys, German tuner DKR has a €5,529 power upgrade that packs an optimized ECU software and a new sports exhaust system. All these change the twin-turbo 3.6-litre boxer engine into a beast that outputs 540 bhp/ 402kW and 775Nm.
If it’s not only power that you need, then a body kit is available, too. A front lip spoiler, a larger rear wing and some 19-inch Cargraphic RS alloy wheels woud definitely close the deal. Like it? – via Carscoop
If you’re a motor sport fan, if you love Porsche or if you just like fast cars here is another one from Porsche. It’s an upgraded version of their GT3 Cup model that now manages to get 420hp and only 265 of these beauties will be produced next year in March, out of which 26 for competition.
The new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup model sports 20hp more than the previous version, from a 3.6-liter boxer engine with six cylinders that comes with a six-speed gearbox with sequential jaw-type shift and a special exhaust system. It weighs 1,150kg which means it’s lighter by 245kg, lowering the kilos per horsepower ration from 3.4 to 2.7 and has great brakes thanks to the exclusive PCCB Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes system.
It sounds like a good upgrade, what do you think?
