The Porsche name is synonymous with sports cars and other performance vehicles. In recent years, the company has branched out to make SUVs and hybrid cars. One of the most high performance cars to roll out of the Porsche factory is the 918 Spyder, which is a hybrid car with incredible performance.
Porsche has officially revealed its new 911 Targa, the removable-roof version of the classic sports car, with a new motorized panel making opening up the top a button-press rather than a wrestle. The new car, shown off today at the North American International Auto Show, uses motors to push the convertible top back, behind the rear seats, with a surprisingly retro look to its thick silver B-pillar bar.
When it comes time to shop for a car that has a bit of open-air feel, the convertible comes to mind for most people. However, convertibles aren’t for everyone and there are other ways to get a bit of fresh air inside your car such as the sunroof. Porsche has a history of offering a third way to get some air in its venerable 911 sports car that hasn’t been seen in many years- the targa top.
Porsche has unveiled a new luxury version of its sporty SUV called the Cayenne. The new version of the SUV is called the Cayenne Platinum Edition and it includes some of the most requested options as standard features. The outside of the special Platinum edition is covered in Platinum Silver Metallic paint.
Porsche has revealed its new 2015 Macan, taking on premium compact SUVs like Range Rover's Evoque and hoping to continue the success of its larger Cayenne sibling. Shown off at the LA Auto Show today, the new Macan will be priced from $49,900 for the entry-level car, though Porsche will also offer the Macan Turbo, which brings 911-style performance in the shape of 400 HP and a 4.4s 0-60mph dash.
The first time Porsche announced that its slick hybrid supercar called the 918 Spyder would be going into production was back in 2010. Since that announcement, all of the details on the 918 Spyder have been unveiled and the car will soon be available to purchase for the wealthy sports car fan. Porsche has recently announced that its final tuning for the car has squeezed out even more performance.
Porsche has announced a new top-of-the-line model for its four-door Panamera range. The new car is called the Porsche Panamera Turbo S and Porsche says that it's the fastest, most powerful, and most luxurious Panamera available. Porsche is also offering an Executive version of the car with a wheelbase extended by 5.9 inches intended for being driven around in rather than driving.
LaCie and Porsche Design have jointly created a sleek new thumb drive aptly named the LaCie Porsche Design USB Key. Unlike many USB drives, the Porsche Design USB Key eschews colorful designs and plastics, aiming more for a sleek, subtle design that blends in on the average key ring and looks professional in a business setting. The thumb drive is available now.
Porsche has announced that it will be doubling the number of models in its high-end 911 Turbo range. Previously the range including the new 911 Turbo and the new 911 Turbo S. Porsche is adding two drop top versions to the new Turbo range doubling the number of Turbo vehicles available.
To celebrate having scored 5 million followers on Facebook, Porsche gave those followers the chance to provide input on a special edition 911 Carrera 4S called the 5M Porsche 911. After quite a bit of input, the vehicle has been built and shown off on Facebook in a gallery of images. Now those same users are being given a chance to get behind the wheel of the car via a contest that ends later this month.
