Porsche planning something track-focused for Geneva [w/poll]

Double world premiere at the Geneva International Motor Show 2015
Porsche shows two new high-performance cars for the first time

Stuttgart. Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG is celebrating the world premiere of two extreme sports cars at this year’s Geneva International Motor Show. The new Cayman GT4 is the first high-performance sports car belonging to the GT family that is based on the mid-engine coupes. Clocking a lap time of seven minutes and 40 seconds on the North Loop of the Nürburgring, the new entry-level model makes a great debut.

The second new model is another exceptional Porsche that sets new standards on the racetrack. The world premiere will take place during the Porsche press conference at the Palexpo Arena in Geneva at 11:30 (CET) on March 3, 2015. A live webcast will be available in German and English on: http://porsche.gomexlive.com/. This vehicle confirms the sports car manufacturer’s commitment to high performance sports cars that manage to make a very special link between everyday driving and motorsports.

These two premieres continue Porsche’s tradition of presenting motorsport highlights at the spring car show on the shores of Lake Geneva. The 911 GT3, 918 Spyder and 919 Hybrid all celebrated their debuts in Geneva in recent years. With the new Cayman GT4, Porsche impressively maximised the driving dynamics of the mid-engine sports car and positions it as the new benchmark in its segment. This high-performance sports car clearly stands out from the other Cayman models: the 3.8-litre engine, which is derived from the 911 Carrera S, produces 385 hp (283 kW). The completely new front end with lowered front spoiler and additional air outlet in front of the bonnet as well as the rear wing make it the only Cayman with downforce at both axles. The chassis, which features a 30 mm lower body position and an extra-large brake system, is set up for motorsports with components from the 911 GT3.

Porsche’s sales figures also continue to develop sportily. With about 16,000 vehicle deliveries to customers in January 2015, the sports car manufacturer continues its success of the past year. This corresponds to an increase of 31 per cent in comparison to the same month of the previous year. The 911 is in especially high demand internationally. More than 2,400 happy customers took deliveries of the sports car icon in January. In 2014, Porsche delivered nearly 189,850 new vehicles to customers all over the world – an increase of 17 per cent over the previous year.

Porsche’s sales figures were also very good in Switzerland, with about 39,000 Porsches owned by a population of approximately eight million. The steady growth is especially pleasing for Porsche. In 2014, Porsche delivered 2,871 new vehicles to Swiss customers, an increase of about 29 per cent over the previous year.

Porsche Classic puts modern navigation in older cars [w/video]

PORSCHE CLASSIC BRINGS OUT NEW NAVIGATION RADIO FOR CLASSIC SPORTS CARS

True-to-style upgrade with state-of-the-art technology

Atlanta. Classic on the outside yet ultra-modern on the inside: with its newly developed navigation radio, Porsche is responding to the growing demand for a built-in device for classic sports cars. The purpose-built unit combines the style of yesteryear with the benefits of modern technology. It fits perfectly into the DIN-1 slot that has been used in the sports cars for decades and is operated by means of two knobs, six discreetly integrated buttons and a touch-sensitive 3.5-inch display.

Thanks to the appearance of the black surface and the shape of the knobs, which are supplied in two authentically styled versions as standard, the navigation radio blends harmoniously into the dashboard of classic Porsche models. It bears Porsche lettering and is suitable for the sports car generations between the first 911 from the 1960s and the last of the 911 series with air cooling from the mid-1990s (993 series), including the earlier front-engine and mid-engine models.

The new navigation radio comes with all the key features of today’s systems. In addition to low-interference radio reception and precise navigation, it has interfaces for a variety of external music sources that can be controlled from the display. A smartphone can be connected via Bluetooth. In addition, the classic radio not only has a built-in microphone but also comes with an external microphone. The integrated amplifier delivers 4×45 watts and can be connected either directly to the loud-speakers or to the original sound system using an optional adapter cable.

Exclusively developed and adapted for classic Porsche sports cars
The new navigation radio has been exclusively developed for Porsche Classic and especially for the classic sports cars. Radio reception, for instance, has been optimized for the built-in aerial supplied ex-works, which is generally only a single telescope. The operating concept of the device is based on Porsche Communication Management (PCM) and has undergone extensive testing at the Technical University in Munich to verify its user friendliness. Numerous trial journeys have been undertaken in Europe to test the country-specific navigation. Drivers have a choice of arrows and two-dimensional or three-dimensional maps to display the route. The maps are stored on a microSD card with eight gigabytes of memory and are updated regularly. In Germany, the new navigation radio is available immediately from Porsche Classic Partners or Centers and costs 1,184 euros including VAT. In the United States, the Porsche Classic navigation radio is in the final testing stages. Availability and pricing for this market will be determined upon completion of testing.

Porsche Classic is a division of the sports car manufacturer responsible for the maintenance of vehicles which were generally produced more than ten years ago. Its services cover all aspects of care and technical literature as well as the supply and reproduction of original parts and even extend to complete restoration. The company is expanding its international dealer and service network to around 100 Porsche Classic Partners for the optimal support and overhaul of classic cars in the next years. Porsche customers and potential customers can expect the complete range of Porsche Classic services from the partners. Through this measure, Porsche has integrated the care and value retention of modern classic and vintage cars in an innovative service concept, closely linking Porsche tradition and Porsche innovation.
