Ever wish there was a destination dedicated to celebrating the automobile? Well, there just so happens to be one, and it’s been around since 1994. Appropriately named “Autostadt” (which is German for “car city”), the 6.4 km facility is located in Wolfsburg, Germany, and has served as a mecca for European auto enthusiasts. And just recently, Porsche erected its very own pavilion, located on the southeast end of the Autostadt grounds.

The pavilion was built in a mere ten months, and was executed in close cooperation with Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG and the Autostadt, Henn Architekten (architecture), HG Merz Architekten (presentation) and WES & Partner landscape architects.

Situated along the Koller axis, an important line connecting Wolfsburg’s Klieversberg and castle, the pavilion extends far over the surface of the lagoon. This location works as a new focal point for the park and lagoon landscape. The unique shape of the roof creates a protected space. In line with the Porsche tradition of lightweight construction, the spatial envelope based on a monocoque (French for “single shell”) design forms the self-supporting structural system. A stainless steel surface, combined with dynamically elegant lines, clearly alludes to Porsche automobile styling.

The pavilion interior welcomes guests with a minimalist, subtle look. Contoured edges without angular lines draw attention to the cars on display. “In the beginning, I looked around but couldn’t find the car of my dreams. So I decided to build it myself.” This quote from Ferry Porsche welcomes visitors into the display area. The “dream car,” a Porsche 356 from 1948, is the starting point for a group of 25 silver models in 1:3 scale. At the other end, guests see three current Porsche models, which are the Boxster S, 911 Carrera S , and Panamera S Hybrid.

Automotive theme park guests at the inauguration of the pavilion will encounter Porsche in other areas as well. Vintage car fans can look forward to special classic car models in the glass cases throughout the park. Younger sports car fans also have the opportunity to take their children’s driving licence test in one of two electric Porsches. Moreover, workshop participants from schools and vocational colleges will, under supervision, restore an old Porsche Super 308 tractor – a witness to Porsche’s history, when Zuffenhausen’s product range encompassed not only sports cars but tractors as well.

Porsche Engineering Group has recently announced that it will be taking over responsibility of the Nardò Technical Center automotive proving ground in Apulia in southern Italy from Prototipo SpA. This is the same facility Porsche showed off a prototype variant of its upcoming 918 Spyder plug-in hybrid supercar.

With more than 80 years experience in engineering services, the hundred per cent subsidiary of Porsche AG will be further optimising the test facilities and making them available to its clients for testing and trials purposes.The facility itself is slightly larger than than 700 hectares in the province of Lecce, Italy, with the test ground consisting of a 6.2 kilometre long handling circuit, a 12.5 kilometre long high speed oval circuit (easily seen from the photo above) and additional facilities for simulating different road surfaces and changeable weather conditions.

“The Nardò proving ground with its high-speed and vehicle handling circuit ideally complements our facilities in Weissach. With the systematic development of the company in Nardò as part of Strategy 2018, Porsche is proving to be a reliable employer and business partner in Apulia as well,” said Matthias Müller, President and CEO of Porsche AG.

“With its rich array of facilities, from dynamic surfaces to acoustic and off-road sections coupled with the numerous workshops, our clients can continue to make extensive use of Nardò for their vehicle trials in the future as well,” said Malte Radmann, CEO of Porsche Engineering. Thanks to the mild climate, the Nardò proving ground can be used throughout the year in three shifts around the clock, seven days a week.

Together with the Porsche Development Centre in Weissach near Stuttgart, Germany, the Porsche Engineering Group has been offering Porsche’s extensive development expertise as a service to its clients from the automotive industry and other sectors worldwide, from renting test rigs to developing complete vehicles.

When finished, the production version will tip the scales at less than 1,678 kg, nearly 80-percent of the weight is below the centerline of the car, giving the 918 a fantastically low center of gravity. Additionally, the entire chassis is a mix of carbon fiber and aluminum, including the passenger compartment and associated crash structure, which weighs in at a mere 220 kg.
Carbon fiber assembly has come a long way since Porsche Carrera GT (which also utilized a carbon fiber tub). 10 years ago, it took Porsche took five days to make the GT’s chassis. Today, Porsche and birth up to five 918 tubs a day thanks to new innovations in composites and assembly methods.
When powertrain development of the 918 Spyder is completed, Porsche says that the 918′s 4.6-liter V8 (originally fitted to the three-time ALMS LMP2 Championship-winning RS Spyder) will produce an amazing 570 hp. Add the power of the front-mounted 80 kW motor and the rear-mounted 90 kW motor, and the 918 produces 770 hp. Seven hundred and seventy horsepower. From the factory.

Porsche has long been a brand that offers many variants of any model it brings to market. Take a look at the 911, for instance. To the untrained, a 911 is a 911. But those in the know recognize the huge differences between a 350-horsepower 911 Carrera, and a 400-horsepower 911 Carrera S Cabriolet. Ultimately, it’s the driver who is rewarded with their choice. And with the driver in mind, Porsche has put its efforts into developing an SUV for the driving connoisseur. That SUV is the all-new Cayenne GTS.

Porsche developed the 2013 Cayenne GTS for those who are looking for sheer, unadulterated driving pleasure with the practicality of a sport utility vehicle. This expressive, 420 horsepower SUV carries performance figures that will rival lithe sports cars.  Porsche managed to wring out 20 more horses (compared to the Cayenne S) from GTS’ V8 under the hood to bring matters to 420 horsepower. For aerodynamic improvements, Porsche lowered the chassis of the GTS by 20 mm and installed a lower final-drive ratio. Channeling all of the power of the Cayenne GTS is Porsche’s eight-speed Tiptronic S paddleshift gearbox.
For improved fuel economy, stop-start is standard.
On the business end of things, the 2013 Cayenne GTS will rocket from 0-100 kph in a scant 5.7 seconds, and will gallop all the way to 261 kph. For the sake of comparison, that’s a click faster than the all-new Boxster.
To give the Cayenne GTS a unique and distinguishable look, Porsche outfitted the SUV with unique side skirts and wheel arches, and can be colored either Peridot Metallic or Carmine Red paint. Unique 20-inch wheels round out the exterior enhancements and eight-way adjustable GTS seats can be found inside. There’s an available Sport Chrono package for track days, as well.

For those who can’t go without a Porsche Cayenne GTS in their life, Porsche has priced the super SUV at $93,600 in Canada. It will go on sale around August 2012. In the video above, the new Cayenne GTS in Peridot Metallic can be seen sprinting through the mountains, engine bellowing and yelling all the way.

Porsche has long been celebrated as the premier European sports car brand. And with precision performance machines like the Boxster, Cayman and 911, it’s hard to argue that. But Porsche also makes a fine Sport Utility Vehicle in the Cayenne. Currently, the Cayenne line is as diverse as it is efficient. From the 300 horsepower base Cayenne, which seats up to five, to the 500 horsepower Cayenne Turbo, which can rocket from 0-100 km in 4.7 seconds, there seemed to be a Cayenne for everybody. But there hasn’t been a diesel offering in the North American market. Until now, that is.

At the 2012 New York International Auto Show, Porsche announced that its champion SUV will be available with a turbo-diesel V6 pumping out 240 horsepower, permanent all-wheel drive and a staggering 554.5 NM of torque starting with the 2013 model year. Appropriately christened the Cayenne Diesel, the torque rating is enough to power the exotic SUV from 0-100km in a mere 7.6 seconds, all the way up to 220 kph. There are few other SUVs besides the Cayenne that can make such a claim.

Fuel economy numbers for Canada have yet to be announced, but Porsche says the diesel’s estimated fuel economy numbers are 20 mpg city / 28 mpg highway on the United States cycle. That roughly equates to 11.76 L/100km extra urban and 8.4 L/100km urban. For a performance SUV, that’s top-tier.

This is by the virtue of not only the diesel engine, which is more efficient than a comparable gasoline engine, but also the advanced 8-speed Tiptronic transmission its mated to. The powertrain is also fortified with an Auto Start/Stop function and Porsche Traction Management (PTM), as well as improved engine acoustics and low vibrations for smooth engine running.

Starting in Canada at $64,500, keen eyes can identify the latest Cayenne variant by the “Diesel” badges behind the front wheel wells. Also for the 2013 model year, Porsche included a few interior changes, including a new standard analog clock on the dashboard, new door lock buttons placed near the front door handles, and the European Factory Delivery program offered for all models. Sales are expect to begin later this year.

New Porsche SUV To Be Called Macan

by Sales Team on March 6, 2012

For those looking for a more nimble SUV offering from Porsche, perk up and learn about the upcoming Macan — Porsche’s confirmed small SUV set to debut in time for the 2013 model year.

The name Macan comes from the Indonesian word for tiger, and is a perfect choice for a vehicle that will embody suppleness, power, dynamics, and fascination.

“The Porsche Macan combines all sports car characteristics with the benefits of a SUV, and is a genuine Porsche,” said Bernhard Maier, member of the executive board of sales and marketing at Porsche AG. “The name of a new Porsche has to fit with the brand, sound good in very many languages and dialects, and evoke positive associations.”

As displayed in the official rendering shown above, the Porsche Macan bears a close resemblance to its larger sibling, the Porsche Cayenne, but with more of a balance towards its smaller family members.

We’ll likely see more details emerge shortly, as the Porsche Macan should launch in time for the 2013 model year. The automaker has invested nearly $691 million to add the Macan to its assembly plant in Leipzig, Germany.

For those that can’t wait for the Macan, there’s the Cayenne, which starts at $55,900. The celebrated performance-oriented SUV comes standard with a 3.6-liter V6 engine, while offering three other engine variants. Of which, there’s 4.8-liter V8, a twin-turbocharged version of the same engine, and a supercharged 3.0L V6 hybrid.
