    2013 Porsche 911 GT3...

    "Spied recently on the Nurburgring, the new 991 GT3 shows an evolutionary design from the previous GT3 with a more aggressive front bumper, center dual exhaust and large rear wing. The 3.8-litre engine is expected to be upgraded to 470 bhp..."

    It is a Photoshop salad of Porsche parts.

    ...it must be the Porsche 911 "50th Anniversary" special edition... Smiley

    50th Anniversary Porsche 911 Debuts at 2013 IAA Motor Show 

    Porsche will celebrate its 50th anniversary of the Porsche 911 at the 2013 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show. They will reveal a special edition to celebrate the car’s golden anniversary.
     
    In a recent interview, August Achleitner, the 911 product line director who is also more colloquially known as ‘Mr 911’, stated that “there is something prepared, something special”.
     
    It is known that Porsche is preparing a series of special events as well as at least one special-edition model to celebrate the anniversary of its iconic rear-engined 2+2.
     
    The 911 was first shown as the 901 at the Frankfurt motor show in September 1963. It swapped to 911 when Peugeot objected to the name. Production began in September 1964.

    If it works that way and is electronically retractable - I am quite interested.  I get the feeling that the renderings are not as good looking as the real thing will be. Smiley


    Re: 991 spyshots thread (continued) (for UNRELEASED models only) Thread Closed

    I found out Porsche took the 991 Turbo and Cajun and some other cars testing here locally, I think someone spotted the convoy today and took some pictures of them, I will see if I can locate those and post here.

    All I saw in this picture is how sexy the 991 looks in a light colour with the glass sunroof. 


    Re: 991 spyshots thread (continued) (for UNRELEASED models only) Thread Closed

    THe 991 looks PERFECT with the blackout top, same could be said if Porsche would do the Targa like this instead of the ugly basket handle Targa, which looks completely out of proportion.

    2013 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup officially unveiled...

    Porsche-911-GT3-Cup.jpg

    Porsche has officially unveiled the 2013 911 GT3 Cup at the company's "Night of Champions” celebration.

    Stuttgart. The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is the most successful race car in the world. Since 1998, 2,395 units of the near standard vehicle for customer sport were produced. The new edition of the 911 GT3 Cup is the motorsports version of the future 911 GT3 and as such is the first race car that is based on the seventh generation of the sports car icon from Zuffenhausen. The 911 GT3 Cup will be run exclusively in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup in 2013. The car for one-make racing made its debut on the occasion of the end of motorsport season “Night of Champions” celebration at the R&D Centre in Weissach.
     
    The new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is powered by a 3.8-litre six-cylinder flat engine. It generates 460 hp (338 kW) at 7,500 revs, surpassing the predecessor by 10 hp. A six-speed dog-type gearbox developed by Porsche Motorsport which is operated via shift paddles at the steering wheel for the first time in a Porsche brand trophy race car transmits the power to the rear axle. The single piece race wheels with centre mount were also newly designed by Porsche Motorsport. The width of the Michelin race slicks was increased by two centimetres to 27 centimetres at the front and by ten millimetres at the rear axle to now measure 31 centimetres. 
     
    A newly developed race braking system further improves the excellent endurance qualities compared to its successful predecessor. The 380 millimetre slotted and inner-vented steel brake rotors at the front axle are decelerated by six-piston aluminium fixed callipers. The rear axle features a four-piston version. 
     
    During the development of the new car a particular emphasis was put on the driver safety. A newly designed safety cage protects the pilot in case of a roll or a collision as does a newly developed race seat which is distinctively shaped around the head and shoulders and can be adjusted individually with the help of padding. A rescue hatch in the roof provides easy access for primary medical attention and for the extrication of the driver. 
     
    “The new 911 GT3 Cup is much easier to drive at the limit,” says Porsche works driver Timo Bernhard, who was significantly involved in the development of the new vehicle. “The car is excellently balanced. The new axle geometry is enormously positive for the handling. Apart from that the new Cup 911 is great fun to drive.” 
     
    Like its predecessor the new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is produced in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen on the same assembly line as the road legal models. At the Motorsport Centre in Weissach it receives a general set-up for the circuit and is tested by a professional race driver before delivery to the customers. The basic price for the vehicle, which is available exclusively in white, is €181,200 plus the country-specific value added tax.

    The Porsche convoy apparently reached Prince George on their way to Yellowknife, aka Arctic Circle.

    Mecan is smaller than the X3?????

    Is Porsche targeting the European market only with that car?


    Re: 991 spyshots thread (continued) (for UNRELEASED models only) Thread Closed

    It's based on the next Q5 which won't be smaller than the current Q5 which is the same size as the X3.
