PostHeaderIcon Porsche Cayenne Turbo

Porsche has a history of making absurd vehicles, but this might take the cake – at least for now. It’s the new 2019 Cayenne Turbo and it packs 550 horsepower from a twin-turbocharged V-8 that turns all four wheels while four-wheel steering and active aero bodywork scramble to keep it pointing straight. Think of it as the playboy’s version of the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.

Porsche pulled the covers off the new high-powered SUV at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show to a crowd of gleeful onlookers. No doubt people fawn on whatever Porsche attaches its crest too, including tall SUVs and four-door sedans with a hybrid powertrain. Granted, the German automaker generally knows how to screw a vehicle together, but Porsche has certainly been carving out new territory over the last 17 years. As for the new Cayenne Turbo, well, it’s muy caliente, so keep reading for the juicy details. You’ll find it includes rear-wheel steering, a new three-chamber air suspension, and a 48-volt electronic roll stabilization system.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 GT3 with Touring Package

Say what you will about Porsche’s tendency to get a little carried away with its niche variants for the 911, but credit should be heaped on the company for being aware of what customers want. Take the Porsche 911 GT3 for example. By every sports car metric, the 911 GT3 is a shining example of the best of Stuttgart engineering. The only problem with it is that it’s far from being the most understated 911 in the market, no thanks to its attention-grabbing aero bits. Then there’s the 911 R, the answer to prayers coming from Porsche purists who were crossing their fingers for a manual transmission 911. The 911 R was the answer to those prayers, except it was limited to just 991 units. Enter then the Porsche 911 GT3 with Touring Package. Think of it as the love child between the 911 GT3 and the 911 R, carrying elements from both models and wrapping them all up in one scintillating package.

The car’s name may not roll off the tongue as smoothly as I’d like, but remember, there is a precedence in Porsche’s history of the “Touring” name being used on a 911, specifically the 1973 Porsche Carrera 911 RS Touring. So we’ve established the roots of the 911 GT3 Touring. But far more than just being a product of Porsches-gone-by and previous iterations of the current-generation 911, the 911 GT3 Touring is a car of its own devices, understated in appearance yet ferocious in performance. In my view, this is the Porsche 911 variant that purists have been waiting for.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Unveiled with 550 PS

The king of all super fast SUVs is back and it’s stronger than ever! The new 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo is extremely awesome on so many different levels. But the one we are most delighted by is the fact you get 550 horsepower as standard. 

That power comes from a four liter twin-turbo V8, which is another delight, seeing as other new Cayennes have gone down to six cylinders. 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo also benefits from a host of nnovative technologies, such as active aerodynamics including roof spoiler, controlled three-chamber air suspension, mixed tyres and the new high-performance brake. It’s no wonder, then, this huge thing is as quick as a supercar: zero to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds (3.9 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package) and a top speed of 286 km/h.

The Cayenne has always been as much about handling as speed and straight-line performance. That part is taken care of in the 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo by, among other things, rear-axle steering and electric roll stabilisation with a 48-volt system. Now these are optional extras, but you definitely want them. Other cool highlights of the new Turbo include Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) which results in a unique look at the front, 21-inch Turbo wheels, and high-resolution display and touchscreen of the Porsche Advanced Cockpit.

The new Cayenne Turbo is set to go on sale across Europe by the end of 2017. The base price, before you option it up with those tech features, is EUR 138,850.

PostHeaderIcon Official: Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package (2018)

Porsche came to this year’s IAA motor show with something rather interesting.If you want a 991 GT3 but hate its wing and PDK transmission, then this new Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package is the car for you. It is wingless and manual.

And that, frankly, all there is to it with this optional package for the GT3. 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package comes with an adaptive rear spoiler similar to that of the 911 Carrera and a six-speed manual gearbox only. It also has a 500 horsepower and 339 lb.-ft. of torque four-liter naturally aspirated flat-six engine. So, you know, it is not going to be hard justifying the $143,600 price tag, which is what one of these costs.

The naming of Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package harks back to the 911s of the yesteryear. But the car itself extremely modern. In fact, the Touring is basically a watered-down, discounted 911 R. It even looks kind of like that car, what with the simple engine cover and discreet aero kit. All it lacks to become an R doppelganger is a pair of stripes.






Among the highlights of the GT3 Touring Package there is the 20 inch center-lock wheels, rear decklid grille with “GT3 touring” logo, side window surrounds, Sport Exhaust tailpipes, and headlight washer in silver, and Exterior in Black option. You also get shift lever, door panel armrests, center console storage compartment lid and interior door handles are upholstered in smooth-finish leather and black brushed aluminum trim. Also, in addition to Porsche Communication Management (PCM), including an online navigation module with real-time traffic information, every 911 GT3 model includes as standard equipment the Connect Plus module and the Porsche Track Precision app.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 911 GT3 Goes Stealth Mode In Frankfurt

With its enormous rear wing and track-bred attitude, the Porsche 911 GT3 is not traditionally the sort of car you want if you’re looking to fly under the radar. Now, however, Porsche is offering a stealthier alternative in the form of the new Touring package for its high-strung two-door. Following in the foot steps of the updated 2018 911 GT3 introduced earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show, the Touring package promises a purist’s approach to going quick. For starters, the old look-at-me aero in back was replaced with a far more understated trailing lip, drawing its design inspiration from the 911 Carrera. Inside, there’s oodles of leather added everywhere. What’s more, the GT3 Touring is only offered with a six-speed manual transmission. Cue enthusiast celebration.

This latest Touring Package is a nod to the past equipment package offered on the 1973 Carrera RS, but adds a touch of modernization on top. “This variant is aimed at fans of high-quality sports cars who particularly value an understated appearance and classic driving enjoyment,” says Porsche. The GT3 Touring Package is offered in conjunction with practically every other option on the 911 GT3 table, with the exception of the Clubsport and Alcantara lines. That means the branded ceramic brakes, Chrono Package, wheel options, and similar stuff is all fair game. The Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package is available now for 152,416 euros in Germany, or $143,600 in the U.S., matching prices for the standard model.

PostHeaderIcon Modern-Day Porsche 908 Long Tail Proposed by Design Team

A five-strong design and modelling team working for a Chinese company decided to take on a humongous task to prove their extraordinary prowess. The challenge was to re-imagine the Porsche 908 Long Tail race car of 1968, and judging by what we are seeing here they have pulled it off.

Even Porsche themselves were impressed when they saw the Porsche 908-04 Concept which the team presented to them in digital and model form and officially endorsed their project. That doesn’t mean they are going to make this modern Porsche 908 Long Tail, but it is fair to say these young designers are going to have a bright future in this business.

The “car guys” who made the 908-04 include Alan Derosier (Exterior Designer), Marcos Beltrao (Exterior Modeler / Rendering), Martin Peng (Component Modeler), Guillermo Mignot (Interior Designer), and Tom Wheatley (Image Retoucher). The concept is only represented in model form, but looking at the digital renditions of the design in various liveries and settings we would like very much to see something this in the real world. And not just as a race car, either. The Porsche 908 Long Tail they have come up with looks feasible as a production hypercar with a hybrid or even full electric power.






“I, as designer, made the choice to have the longtail because Porsches with this feature have something genuinely unique. And until now nobody, as far as I know, has tried to create a modern version of it. In my opinion, it is a bit of a forgotten idea, so I thought it would be a “rebirth of an icon” that would generate nostalgia in car and Porsche enthusiasts alike”, Alan, the project leader, recalls.

PostHeaderIcon Missed Out on the Cool Porsche 911 R? You’ll be Able to Buy One Soon

Introduced in 2016, the 911 R is arguably one of the greatest sports cars Porsche has ever built. Essentially a wingless GT3 with a manual transmission, it was designed as the ultimate purist 911 and it was received with great enthusiasm. Interest was so high that all 911 units were sold before the car’s official launch, despite a $184,900 sticker that was $9,000 higher than that of the 911 GT3. What’s more, the 911 R began to fetch more than $1 million on the used-car market after only a couple of months on the road. All told, it was way too exclusive to become a proper purist sports car since only a few rich customers had access to it. But things could change in the near future.

According to Porsche R&D boss Michael Steiner, the German firm plans on launching a purist version of the 911 with a regular production run. Speaking to Autocar at the launch of the new Cayenne, he said that Stuttgart sees “potential for more purist versions of sports cars with no limitation” on production numbers. This could mean that Porsche might introduce a model similar to the 911 R as a regular member of the Porsche family instead of a highly limited edition that would send prices through the roof and leave many enthusiasts out of the picture.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Macan GT3 RS

“GT3 RS” is a unique series letters that carries a whole lotta weight when it comes to the Stuttgart faithful. This is the label used for Porsche’s homologation efforts, harkening back to 911’s of old where speed potential and track readiness were maximized for the ultimate in mean-machine German street offerings. Less weight through extensive use of composite materials and plastic windows, bigger, purposeful aerodynamic enhancements, wider, grippier tires, and of course, an extra splash of power are all expected when those five little letters are in play. Whether it’s prowling the highways or attacking the Karussell at the Nurburgring, the GT3 RS is not to be trifled with. Which makes it a strange thing to see when it’s plastered on a tall-bodied SUV, no? How could such a thing exist without diluting the nameplate for future hardcore models?

That’s a difficult question to answer, but Porsche certainly isn’t afraid to ask it. After all, this is the same company that brought us the Cayenne, considered to be one of the first in a wave of performance SUVs to hit the U.S. in the past decade and a half. What’s more, the competition has caught scent as well. Consider such outrageous creations as the Range Rover Sport SVR, Mercedes-AMG GLE63, and Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. In company like this, why not make a hell-bent, track-ready, monster Macan?

PostHeaderIcon The Porsche Cayenne: A Leap of Faith Becomes a Complete Success

14 years isn’t a long time in the industry, but it does feel like it with the Porsche Cayenne. I know it’s only just gotten to its third-generation, but for a car that made a polarizing debut in 2003, it sure seems like it’s been around a lot longer than that. Most of you probably know that the third-gen Cayenne was just unveiled during a spectacular launch in Stuttgart, Germany, and as far as new model unveilings are concerned, this is as big as it’s going to get. More than any other model, the Cayenne is considered the model that really ushered in premium SUVs in the market. It was the first SUV from a regarded premium automaker to make that plunge into the SUV market, and while it had its ups and downs in the early years, it’s ended up arguably being Porsche’s most important model.

I saw what the third-gen Cayenne looks like and it looks positively tasty. Hard to imagine that it looks the way it does now when the first-gen model, at least with the benefit of hindsight, wasn’t all that attractive. It did pack a punch though, and a pretty potent one that. Taking the good with the bad, Porsche nevertheless deserves a ton of credit for investing heavily on the Cayenne when the first impulse back then was to gag at the thought of a Porsche SUV. 14 years and three generations later, the Porsche Cayenne is still standing at the top of the premium SUV market. It’s come a long way, that’s for sure.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Porsche Cayenne – Details, Specs, Pricing

New boss, same as old boss, only better. That is how you can describe the new 2018 Porsche Cayenne SUV. An untrained eye won’t notice any difference whatsoever over the previous model, but subtlety is the key here. The new Cayenne is by far the most exquisite yet.

So let’s not talk about the design and instead focus on what makes this car a great SUV. Here’s some facts and figures. 2018 Porsche Cayenne boasts 770 litres of luggage space – 100 more than before. The car is physically bigger than its predecessor, in fact. The standard Cayenne comes with a six-cylinder turbo engine delivering 340 hp and 450 Nm. The Cayenne S, meanwhile, packs 440 hp and 550 Nm.

As such, the Cayenne accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds (5.9 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package). The 2018 Porsche Cayenne S does that in just 5.2 seconds (with Sport Chrono Package: 4.9 seconds). The former has a top speed of 245 km/h, the latter 265 km/h. You get a new eight-speed Tiptronic S gearbox and Porsche Traction Management (PTM), plus optional rear-axle steering, air suspension, roll stabilisation. These are parts of integrated Porsche 4D Chassis Control system. Those interested in sporty driving can also select Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC).

Every 2018 Porsche Cayenne now gets LED headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) available as option. The new SUV also debuts the Porsche Surface Coated Brake (PSCB). These high-performance brakes comes only with 20 or 21 inch wheels and white brake calipers to set them apart. Another highlight would be Porsche Advanced Cockpit featuring a 12.3-inch full-HD touchscreen. Porsche Communication Management (PCM) is integrated into this along with Porsche Connect.

Prices for the new Cayenne start at EUR 74,828 for the regular and EUR 91,964 for the S model. You can place your order right now.

PostHeaderIcon The Third-Gen Porsche Cayenne Makes a Symphonious Debut in Stuttgart

A huge symphony projected onto a massive display, and a large number of dancers in white robes set the mood for the third-gen Porsche Cayenne to roll onto the stage for its first official outing at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart. When you think of a new-gen model making its debut, you expect to see something quite different, but with the Cayenne, it was more about honing perfection instead of trying to reinvent the model. And, while some may have their reservations about it (perhaps even me included,) beauty runs much deeper than the skin on this baby. First off, the body is now all aluminum from front to rear (minus a few pieces of plastic cladding, of course) which contributed to a weight loss of around 65 kilo or 143.3 pounds. That’s the weight of a small human, and when you add in the fact that it gets more power, there’s no doubt about it, the new Cayenne has all that sports car DNA Porsche was aiming for.
How did it make this possible? Well, I’m glad you asked.

For starters, a new rear axle steering system is standard equipment for better maneuverability while a three-chamber suspension system keeps the ride on point. What’s more important, however, is the power upgrades that contribute to better performance. The base model gets a 3.0-liter that’s good for 340 horsepower, a 40-pony improvement, and 331 pound-feet of torque. The Cayenne S, which gets the 2.9-liter V-6, will deliver a tasty 440 horsepower (20 extra ponies) and 405 pound-feet of twist. They can hit 62 mph in 6.2 and 5.2 seconds, respectively. If you opt for the Sport Chrono package, those figures drop to 5.9 and 4.9 seconds. Maximum speed for both models is pegged at 164 mph. As for the interior, there are some nice changes in play as well, including better digitization of the instrument cluster (all but the central analog gauge) and a large, 12.3-inch touchscreen display in the center stack. New HVAC vents help to provide a fresh look while the typical support handles on the doors and console have been moved forward a bit. Cargo capacity has increased to 27.19 cubic-feet, an improvement of 3.53 cubic-feet over the outgoing model. This can be attributed to its slightly longer stance, which was increased by nearly 2.5 inches. Finally, and arguably most important for the interior, is the new button panel on the center console. Where there were once analog buttons clustered together now sits a glass touch screen with lots of digital buttons. It’s a nice touch, to say the least.

And there you have it. There are of course other little details to talk about, but we’ll cover that in our full review, which will be updated in the next 24 hours. For now, you can rest your mind knowing that the third-gen Cayenne starts out in Germany from €74,828 while the Cayenne S goes for €91,964, both including VAT. Those figures convert to $85,590 and $110,106, respectively. The third-gen Cayenne isn’t available for the U.S. quite yet, but if you’re over there in Germany, you can stop by your local dealer and place your order now.

PostHeaderIcon Check it Out: The Third-Gen Porsche Cayenne Leaks Before its Official Debut!!!

Introduced to the U.S. for the 2003 model year, the Porsche Cayenne has been through two generations and is set to make another generational shift on August 29, but before that happens, someone – most likely Porsche trying to generate hype – has leaked a whole handful of images that show off the next-gen (if that’s what you would call it) SUV. It’s becoming pretty commonplace for luxury automakers to be quite lazy with visual changes when it comes to generational updates, and the Porsche Cayenne is no exception. In fact, to an untrained eye, I wouldn’t blame you for thinking that this was a 2017 Cayenne. Very few changes can be spotted, but include a slightly larger center grille with slightly larger corner air inlets. It does feature invisible mesh hidden behind three chrome plated louvers and the fog light area has also changed, to allow for rectangular units. The air dam is just a bit wider, and the hood gets a couple of extra body lines. The biggest change up front is limited to the new headlight units, that are now single light units. If you recall, the second-gen model had the same LED headlights but also featured a projector to the inside corner. That is no longer the case, and the main LEDs should provide variable brightness depending on whether you have your dims or brights engaged.

As for the rest of the outside, there isn’t much to write home about. The side profile is pretty much unchanged from the current model while the overhang on the rear hatch no gets longer wings on the sides. The taillights are now thinner units with a flat bottom, connected together by a reflector unit that traverses the width of the hatch. The rear fascia is less eventful but does feature a sharp body line running from left to right. Finally, the lower portion of the rear fascia gets larger cladding with rectangular exhaust outlets. It’s not bad, but this is worthier of being called a facelift than a generational shift. But, what about the interior? Keep reading to find out.

PostHeaderIcon 2017 Porsche Panamera Interior Upgrade by TopCar

Russian tuner TopCar is famous for their unique taste in modifying luxury cars. They are fond of extravagance and flamboyance, and it shows with the new interior kit they have devised for the 2017 Porsche Panamera . This is a one-off project, but it serves as good template for what TopCar is all about. 

The owners of this particular 2017 Porsche Panamera clearly wasn’t happy with the standard and design material. He wanted something with a bit (lot) more flair, and TopCar was only too happy to oblige him. So they went ahead and modified every single surface you can see and touch and covered it with new material that feature elaborate designs and exotic colors. There is two-tone upholstery, artistic stitching and piping all around, new trim pieces and fancy accents.

On the seats this Panamera gets a fantastic upholstery design that not only looks great on its own, it complements the rest of the cabin. The door covers are covered with white leather and accented with dark wood trims. The same luxurious and expensive material is found on the dashboard and on top of the custom steering wheel whose shape has also been modified to look and feel sportier. Even the floor mats are a work of art with leather accents and stitching.

This interior is a pretty subtle one by TopCar’s standard. After all, they have treatments in their portfolio featuring ample amounts of crocodile leather and other ultra-exotic material. Still, we think this is one of the classiest ones they have done yet.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Porsche Cayenne Leaked – Early Look

Well, as is often the case with hot new debuts the internet just could not wait a few more days for the official stuff. And so we get our first look at the new 2018 Porsche Cayenne in the leaked photos that reveal all the details of the exterior and interior. 

Having said that, the leak does not ruin the thing for Cayenne fans. Everybody knew that the design was going to be an evolution of the current model and nobody expected a major overhaul. Still, there are some nice fresh features in the design of 2018 Porsche Cayenne which make it look distinguished and sufficiently ‘new’ to warrant an upgrade if you own the current generation. The exterior is influenced in places by the the Mission E concept and the latest Panamera. So the front-end is neater and you get a really special look around the back.

The Panamera influence is heavier inside the cabin of 2018 Porsche Cayenne where you get the large center screen typical of all new Porsches and a sloping center console with some really cool-looking buttons on it that don’t seem particularity easy to use. The interior, too, is predictable and there aren’t any major surprises which ought to keep the fans of the old model happy. Porsche fans are not very fond of big changes.

As for the engines and other technical details, we best wait a couple more days and get the official figures instead of speculating. The new Cayenne will make its debut online on August 29 before getting a physical world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Porsche Cayenne Previews in Official Sketch

Next week Porsche will unveil a new version of its Cayenne SUV. Traditionally, this is not something we would get excited about. After all, the new model will at best be just a little bit less ugly than its predecessor. But we have to say this sketch of 2018 Porsche Cayenne they have just released looks pretty intriguing. 

The sketch shows us the silhouette of 2018 Porsche Cayenne. It reveals a muscular and athletic with curves in all the right places. If anything, the new Cayenne appears to be influenced by the design of its little brother the Macan. That means you can also expect a lower roof,slimmer lights and sportier bumpers and skirts. Put this lot together and the end result is bound to be good looking.

One thing you can be sure of about the 2018 Porsche Cayenne is that it will be technically brilliant. It will get more powerful, more efficient engines, including diesel and hybrid variant. It’ll also be pretty tough and long-lasting. Porsche has spent the past couple of years racking up thousands of miles with prototypes of this car in some of the world’s harshest places to ensure the new Cayenne is of top-notch quality and durability. And of course the Cayenne will be amazing to drive. It’s always offered the best handling you can expect from a tall and capable SUV.

Stay tuned for the official details and photos as we get closer to debut day on August 29.

PostHeaderIcon New Generation Porsche Cayenne Concludes Testing

Later this month the third generation Porsche Cayenne SUV will go official. The German automaker says the new model is a complete redevelopment, but if we know Porsche the looks are not going to be revolutionary. The 2018 Cayenne will in all likelihood be another classy, capable, lovable uggo. 

But that remains to be seen. Right now we want to talk to you about the obvious stuff. 2018 Porsche Cayenne is going to be as tough, as well-made, and as reliable as its predecessors. That is not just an educated guess based on past experiences, either. That is the result you get when you put the prototype of a car through difficult tests and it passes them all with flying color. In the case of the Cayenne the tests included 4.4 million kilometers in conditions ranging from minus 45 degrees to plus 50 degrees.

engineers and technicians measure in these unforgiving tests the tolerance of each individual part and the whole car as a unit. They also make sure all the mechanical and electrical parts work under extreme stress the like of which is extremely unlikely to occur in real life. So the new Cayenne may still not be a looker, but you can take solace in the fact it’s going to be in your service for a long, long time.

To simulate extreme stresses, the prototypes of the new Cayenne are being tested all around the world, including on race tracks traditionally used by Porsche to test all its models: In Germany, the Hockenheimring and the especially challenging Nürburgring-Nordschleife are used. In Italy, the test cars are put through their paces in continuous operation on the 12.6-km high-speed track at Nardò. The materials, sensors and electronics have to prove their quality and durability in different climate conditions – at up to plus 50 degrees Celsius in the sand dunes of Dubai (UAE) and on dusty slopes in Death Valley (USA) as well as at up to minus 45 degrees Celsius on ice and snow in Alaska (USA). The third generation of the Cayenne also had to endure the stop-start traffic in the hot and humid conditions of Chinese cities, master test tracks in Sweden, Finland and Spain, and was transported to South Africa, Japan and New Zealand to complete extensive on and offroad testing.

PostHeaderIcon Expensive Braided Carbon Wheels for Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series

As if Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series, costing several hundred thousand Euros including an 80 grand paint job, wasn’t exclusive enough, the German sports car maker announced the launch of a new high-end option for this model. It’s a set of 20 inch braided carbon fiber wheels, available as an option from the beginning of 2018 for 15,232 EUR!

You don’t spend that 15 grand on looks, that’s for sure. We know of 500 Euro rims that look nicer than these things. No, with braided carbon fiber wheels you pay for technical excellence, namely less weight and greater strength. The wheels in the20 inch set built for Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series are around 8.5 kilograms lighter than standard alloy wheels, which is a reduction of 20 per cent. They are also 20 per cent stronger, meaning they provide better grip and stability greater agility, and improved acceleration and braking performance.

Though its technologically advanced, Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series’s braided carbon wheels are structurally simple. It all comes down to material really. You got the rim base which is made from braided carbon fibre by what is currently the world’s largest carbon fibre braiding machine with a diameter of approximately nine metres, and the wheel centre  made from carbon-fibre fabric featuring cutting and assembling over 200 individual components. The assembled wheel is impregnated with resin and pre-hardened at high pressure and high temperatures. After it’s properly cooled, the center lock is assembled and a protective layer of lacquer is applied. The new carbon wheel is made from a total of 18 kilometres carbon fibre or eight square metres of carbon-fibre fabric.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Showcases The Personalization Potential Of The Macan

Of all the cars in Porsche’s current lineup, the Porsche Macan is the one model that’s still searching for an identity. That’s not a dig at the crossover; it is, rather, a product of circumstance given that it’s one of the newest models in the company’s lineup. But just because the Macan doesn’t have the status of the 911 or the popularity of the Cayenne doesn’t mean that it can’t score a taste of the high side of personalization, as this particular Macan example is proudly showing us.

To be clear, this isn’t a one-off, exclusive take on the Macan. It’s not even a special edition model. Rather, it’s an example of what Porsche is able to do with its baby crossover should a customer want to really dive deep into personalization. It’s based on the Macan Turbo and is decked all around with Porsche’s Performance Package, hence the sportier appearance. It also gets a unique livery that touches on Porsche’s racing history. Think the Macan already looks good dressed in all black? How about a two-tone color scheme with the other half of the body in white and throw in red and silver racing stripes for good measure? I can’t say that this kind of personalized treatment will be universally accepted, but as far as Porsche is concerned, this example isn’t as important as the message it’s conveying, which is to say that Porsche is open for your Macan personalization needs.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Rennsport Reunion VI Dates Confirmed

Porsche-Rennsport-Reunion-V-lead

There really is nothing like Porsche Rennsport Reunion, which is the world’s largest and by far and away the most prestigious factory-backed motorsport event. Porsche has just announced the dates and details for the sixth edition of the even,to be held September 27-30, 2018 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

If yo are into classic Porsches and/or vintage racing cars, then Porsche Rennsport Reunion is where you want to be. The event brings together an extraordinary gathering of significant Porsche racecars, as well as those who have designed, engineered, and driven them to victory in the world’s most famous sports car races. The onlydrawback is it only happens every three years, but then it makes the occasion more special. Since Rennsport moved west they can count on large numbers of west coast cars and car aficionados to bolster the event. The last one in 2015 saw a collection of 1,300  Porsche Club of America (PCA) member-owned Porsche models filling the fields.

“Choosing the Monterey Peninsula once again for our unique Porsche family reunion builds upon what we learned from previous Rennsport Reunions,” said Klaus Zellmer, President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America. “We had close to 60,000 fans, enthusiasts and owners come through the gates of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca to celebrate with us in 2015, and California’s picturesque central coast provides an ideal backdrop. The Golden State as a whole has always been like a second home to Porsche.”
