Review of 2012 Porsche 911 Coupe

Posted on: August 31, 2011 | In Porsche

The Porsche 911 has been a stable coupe that has been offered by Porsche for many years. And since the 911 is facing almost have a century of having this car on the market, the makers of Porsche have decided to spruce up the image of the 911 for the 2012 year. However, will the changes be something that people want to see? This is debatable, however, some of the changes that have been made for the 911 this upcoming year are those that were really needed in order to make sure that people are getting something that is competitive on the market. 

2012 Porsche 911

For example, the company was able to shave around one hundred pounds off of the car. This in turn is going to get much better fuel mileage than most other competitors on the market. And this change has also allowed for the 911 to get a bit more acceleration than it has in the past with the car able to go from zero to sixty in around four seconds. Which is amazing time by any standards of sports cars that are out there. In terms of engines, the person is going to find that either option that they get, they are going to be satisfied with what they are getting. There is the six cylinder option that is going to give around 380 horsepower, while the eight cylinder option is going to give around 400 horsepower option. This is going to be something that is going to get anyone's engines revving, so to speak. Add into the fact that the person is getting a seven speed transmission that is manual, most people are finding that they are getting a great deal and a great performance car.

With all of these being said, what are some of the things that people are not liking about the new 911? There is a ton more electronic things that are added to the car in order to give it a more technology appeal to those that are looking for something that appeals to them in this way. However, most people are not liking the fact that there is so much more that could go wrong with the car that they are interested in. With that being said, most people are learning to accept that this is just something that they have to deal with. 

The driving of the car seems to be very appealing to those that are looking for something different. They are finding that it hugs to the road as though it was stuck to it like glue. Which is what the person wants when they are driving a sports car and are more than likely seeing what the car can do for them. So is the 911 Porsche something that people should be thinking of? Most definitely since they are going to be getting the new generation of the 911 that is something most people are looking forward to. At the base price of around $87,000 though, some people may have to save up for quite a while in order to get this as their own. 
 
 

Porsche Built an Electric Car in the 1900s

Posted on: November 8, 2010 | In Porsche

It seems that electric cars and Hybrids are gaining popularity as government pressure in lowering CO2 emissions seems to grow, and people are becoming more environmentally conscientious. However, one of the most exclusive and prestigious automakers built an electric model in the 1900s – Porsche. Yes, an electric model existed that long ago, and our efforts for becoming green may seem "late" when we know of this information. However, more than one hundred years later, we seem to be listening – even the now Porsche seems to be listening and considering more hybrids in the future.  

The 1900 electric car was the creation of Ferdinand Porsche – the founder of the company and a visionary of his time. Electric in the beginning, this car was later modified to work with electricity and gas. This would make this the first hybrid available. This vehicle won an award in the 1900 Paris World Fair – the award was for the most innovative invention.  

Although very different from today's electric technology, it was the beginning of a green technology that took more than 100 years to be noticed and applied. This vehicle had an electric motor on each of the front wheels. The speed was up to 37 mph, not bad for the times. When the gas feature was added, more due to the lack of performance of the batteries of that time, it went up to 56 mph. Even then, Porsche shined in performance and cutting edge innovation.  

That is why now, after Porsche's announcement that it will start focusing on hybrid models, the eyes are on Porsche, as this company is known for innovation and cutting edge technology for performance. What surprises will await Porsche lovers and enthusiasts? That is waiting to be seen, but for now, a hybrid SUV was introduced to the market in the past couple of years, and for 2012, Porsche will release a hybrid sports car version of the Spyder. However, its first true hybrid was the 1900 Ferdinand Porsche vehicle.

2011 Porsche Cayenne S

Posted on: | In Porsche

Barely 10 years ago, the idea would have been dismissed as absurd. A Porsche sport-utility vehicle? What’ve you been smoking? Its quick, nimble, relatively small sports cars, cars built on values almost diametrically opposed to those represented by a big SUV. It speaks to our changing automotive tastes, if not the times, that Porsche felt the need to invest in an SUV and a new factory to build it. Ready or not, the most anticipated new Porsche in decades, The 2011 Porsche Cayenne S, is here. For style, pure performance and a balance of sport-utility virtues, The 2011 Porsche Cayenne S is very tough to be beat.

 

There are two versions of The 2011 Porsche Cayenne S, both built around Porsche’s new 4.5-liter dohc V8 engine with automatic transmission and full-time, variable-torque all-wheel drive. The normally aspirated 2011 Porsche Cayenne S delivers 340 horsepower.

 

Beyond the electronic skid management and the latest-generation antilock brakes, all 2011 Porsche Cayenne S get luxury-grade passive safety features, starting with six airbags: dual-stage front and side-impact airbags for front passengers, and curtain-style head protection airbags on both sides of the cabin. All five seating positions have three-point belts with pre tensioners to instantly tighten them and limit stretching on impact. The front belts also have automatic force limiters, reducing potential for belt-related injuries. The 2011 2011 Porsche Cayenne S Turbo also adds adjustable air suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), a variable dampening system that uses five accelerometers and electronically controlled adjustable shocks to manage body weight transfer both on and off road.

 

The 2011 2011 Porsche Cayenne S includes upgrades such as heated front and rear seats, electric steering wheel adjustment and park-assist radar warning front and rear. It’s equipped with Porsche Communications Management (PCM), a GPS navigation system with integrated telephone and audio controls. Finally, the Cayenne Turbo has bi-xenon headlights that turn, Tucker-style, with the steering wheel. Other popular options include a six-disc CD changer and huge, 20-inch sport wheels. There are seat upgrades and a full Smooth Leather package that covers everything from grab handles to the center console in hide. There’s also a light Olive wood package, two different wood-trimmed steering wheels and Porsche Entry and Drive, which allows a driver to unlock and start The 2011 Porsche Cayenne S by pulling the door handle and touching the shift lever. Owners can customize their SUV with Porsche’s Tequipment line of dealer-installed accessories, from stowage systems to running boards to stainless steel brush guards. 2011 Porsche Cayenne S is not a small vehicle? Measuring 188.3 inches in length, with a wheelbase of 112.4 inches, it’s longer than the BMW X5 and Mercedes M-Class and a few hundred pounds heavier than both. Conversely, at 4949 pounds in its lightest specification, 2011 Porsche Cayenne S weighs 550 pounds less than a Lincoln Navigator, which is two feet longer. An inspection underneath this SUV suggests that it’s well engineered, perhaps over-engineered, compared to many mass-market sport-utilities. Apparently Porsche engineers preferred not to take chances with their first SUV, in the event that some owners actually drive it aggressively off road.

2011 Porsche Gt3

Posted on: | In Porsche

2011 Porsche Gt3 has more power and more torque on the same engine size and with unchanged fuel consumption. Consistently reducing moving masses in the six-cylinder power unit and capitalising on the benefits of infinite Vario Cam camshaft adjustment, The new 2011 2011 Porsche Gt3 comes with a significant boost in power of 15 kW or 21 bhp: Maximum output is up from 265 kW or 360 bhp at 7200 rpm to 280 kW or 381 bhp at 7400 rpm. Maximum torque has increased from 370 to 385 Newton metres (272-284 lb-ft) at unchanged engine speed of 5000rpm.

 

In the process the six-cylinder power unit has also improved even further in its free-revving running qualities, engine speeds moving up even more dynamically and maximum engine speed increasing accordingly: Now engine control does not take over in the lower four gears until 8200 rpm, as opposed to 7800 rpm in the past.

 

On the road, this improvement of free-revving qualities offers an over-proportional increase in actual performance you can both feel and measure: The 2011 Porsche Gt3 accelerates to 100 km/h from a standstill in just 4.5 seconds, 0.3 seconds faster than before. And now, also benefiting from even better streamlining, the new model continues to surge ahead all the way to a maximum speed to 306 km/h or 190mph. The supreme qualities of The 2011 Porsche Gt3 in terms of acceleration, flexibility and top speed are matched just as convincingly by the car’s stopping power and deceleration to master the even greater power of the engine and the car’s dynamic performance enhanced to a new level by the optimised chassis and suspension.

 

The front brake discs have been increased in diameter by 20 millimeters to the new dimension of 350 millimeters or 13.8″. And compared with the previous model featuring four-piston fixed calipers, The new 2011 2011 Porsche Gt3 comes with far more powerful six-piston brake calipers finished by tradition in red. These calipers enlarge the contact area between the brake pads and the brake discs by approximately 40 per cent, ensuring outstanding deceleration and stopping power even under the toughest conditions. As an option The 2011 Porsche Gt3 may be equipped with Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB). Cross-drilled and inner-vented, these ceramic composite brake discs measuring 350 millimeters in diameter are 50 per cent lighter than metal brake discs and reduce unsparing masses by approximately 18 kg. In conjunction with the brake lining also developed specifically for this model, the ceramic brake discs immediately ensure a very high and, in particular, consistent frictional coefficient throughout the entire braking process. Improving the aerodynamic qualities of The 2011 Porsche Gt3 in virtually every respect, Porsche’s engineers and aerodynamicists have focused on each and every millimeter of the car’s outer skin in the interest of maximum performance. Particularly striking points are the newly designed front end with its enhanced swept-back nose and the new side-sills as well as the truly dominating rear spoiler. These are the main reasons for the ongoing reduction of lift forces on both the axles.

2011 Porsche 911 Cabrio

Posted on: October 19, 2010 | In Porsche

Today’s 2011 Porsche 911 Cabrio offers the latest in engine and chassis technology and more performance than all but a few exotic cars sold in America. What’s really impressive, though, is how easy it is to drive a 2011 Porsche 911 Cabrio. It’s easier to drive quickly than the Italian exotics or, for that matter, the Dodge Viper, and it’s easier to live with on a daily basis. 2011 Porsche 911 Cabrio is built on race-proven architecture with a 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine mounted in the rear.

The lighter, race-inspired GT2 delivers even quicker performance and a top speed of 195. For most of us, the normally aspirated models are more than quick enough and cost significantly less. New for 2011 is the GT3, the most powerful non-turbocharged Porsche has ever offered for street use in North America. Accelerating from 0 to 60 happens in just 4.3 seconds and it can hit 100 in 9.4 with a top track speed of 190. Handling and braking are extraordinary. Steering is quick and direct, yet the car isn’t darty and feels as solid as Gibraltar on the highway. It rides smoothly and more softly than you might expect. It’s an easy car to live with on a daily basis, easier than a Boxster. The six-speed manual gearbox is smooth and wonderful. Order the Tiptronic automatic and just about anyone could drive one of these cars. And that sound! The classic Porsche exhaust sound returned to The 2011 Porsche 911 Cabrio last year along with the increased power and improved efficiency.

 

Eight iterations of The 2011 Porsche 911 Cabrio are now available. Assuming you can’t justify a Turbo or the highly focused GT2 or GT3 models, it comes down to whether you want a hardtop, a convertible. Two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive are available and there’s a choice between six-speed manual or five-speed Tiptronic automatic. 2011 Porsche 911 Cabrio models come well equipped with the new digital radio and in-dash CD player, automatic climate control, heated power mirrors, partial leather seats with power recliners, power windows with one-touch auto up/down, telescoping steering wheel, anti-theft system, trip computer. LEDs gently illuminate door handles, ignition switch, and light switch. Standard safety technology on all 2011 Porsche 911 Cabrio models includes dual frontal airbags, door-mounted side airbags, anti-lock brakes (ABS), and a patented crumple-zone body structure. The available Porsche Stability Management System (PSM) enhances handling by applying braking to individual wheels or altering engine power whenever it detects a loss of grip. Porsche offers special options that allow customers to turn their 2011 Porsche 911 Cabrio into unique cars. Special interior trim and exterior pieces along with special paints and leather colors are available. Though expensive, they offer some interesting combinations.

Its maximum speed is 319 km/h, making The 2011 Porsche 911 Gt2 for The 2011 model year 4 km/h faster than its predecessor. Its exhaust emission values are similar to those of The 2011 Porsche 911 Gt2 and it complies easily with the stringent D4 standards. These are equivalent to the EURO 4 standard test limits that will not become mandatory until January 1, 2011. As a matter of course, The 2011 Porsche 911 Gt2 also satisfies the US LEV standard.

Improving the aerodynamic qualities of The 2011 Porsche 911 Gt3 in virtually every respect, Porsche’s engineers and aerodynamicists have focused on each and every millimeter of the car’s outer skin in the interest of maximum performance. Consistently reducing moving masses in the six-cylinder power unit and capitalising on the benefits of infinite Vario Cam camshaft adjustment, The new 2011 2011 Porsche 911 Gt3 comes with a significant boost in power of 15 kW or 21 bhp: Maximum output is up from 265 kW or 360 bhp at 7200 rpm to 280 kW or 381 bhp at 7400 rpm. Maximum torque has increased from 370 to 385 Newton-metres (272-284 lb-ft) at unchanged engine speed of 5000rpm. In the process the six-cylinder power unit has also improved even further in its free-revving running qualities, engine speeds moving up even more dynamically and maximum engine speed increasing accordingly: Now engine control does not take over in the lower four gears until 8200 rpm, as opposed to 7800 rpm in the past. On the road, this improvement of free-revving qualities offers an over-proportional increase in actual performance you can both feel and measure.

 

The 2011 Porsche 911 Gt3 accelerates to 100 km/h from a standstill in just 4.5 seconds, 0.3 seconds faster than before. And now, also benefiting from even better streamlining, the new model continues to surge ahead all the way to a maximum speed to 306 km/h or 190mph.

The supreme qualities of The 2011 Porsche 911 Gt3 in terms of acceleration, flexibility and top speed are matched just as convincingly by the car’s stopping power and deceleration to master the even greater power of the engine and the car’s dynamic performance enhanced to a new level by the optimized chassis and suspension. The front brake discs have been increased in diameter by 20 millimeters to the new dimension of 350 millimeters or 13.8″. And compared with the previous model featuring four-piston fixed calipers, The new 2011 2011 Porsche 911 Gt3 comes with far more powerful six-piston brake calipers finished by tradition in red. These calipers enlarge the contact area between the brake pads and the brake discs by approximately 40 per cent, ensuring outstanding deceleration and stopping power even under the toughest conditions.

 

 

 

As an option The 2011 Porsche 911 Gt3 may be equipped with Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB). Cross-drilled and inner-vented, these ceramic composite brake discs measuring 350 millimeters in diameter are 50 per cent lighter than metal brake discs and reduce unsparing masses by approximately 18 kg. In conjunction with the brake lining also developed specifically for this model, the ceramic brake discs immediately ensure a very high and, in particular, consistent frictional coefficient throughout the entire braking process. Particularly striking points are the newly designed front end with its enhanced swept-back nose and the new side-sills as well as the truly dominating rear spoiler. These are the main reasons for the ongoing reduction of lift forces on both the axles.
