    Itsme:

    Stupid question: what is he technical reason why rims on motorsport 911 are smaller (diameter) the on the street 911s? Reglement? Or any technical benefits?

    Lower unsprung weight and quicker acceleration which a racing car does many times in one lap and in the course of a race. The trade-off is a lower top speed but acceleration is more relevant.

    Put in the PDK, lose the passenger seat, sealer out all the interior and that's the car I wished for.

    If anyone draws my name on a RT secret Santa this fits under my right foot perfectly. No, I’m not getting it for myself (yet) but it was at the dealership when I went in for a service. It's a nice spec with a lot of the must have options you guys always mention for a new order. The seller was surprised I could identify some of them right away. Guess I’ve picked up a thing or two from years listening to this crowd 😅

    What model what color, etc.?


    Re: Welcome to Rennteam: Cars and Coffee... (photos)

    It was a base Carrera in Chalk, grey interior, Sports exhaust, clear tail light, 911 only badging in the back, sports exhaust, sport chrono package, smoking package, interior lighting package,Bose sound system, sport seats,  colored crests on the wheels. I liked it a lot. 


    Re: Welcome to Rennteam: Cars and Coffee... (photos)

    Beautiful car, elegant and well optioned.  👍

    I love how you never know what you’ll see when you enter the dealership. It’s a nice surprise when something tugs at you a little bit!

    Apple shows off next generation CarPlay in Porsche and Aston Martin cars

    William GallagherDec 20, 2023

    Apple is working with Porsche to customize CarPlay (Source: Apple)

    Slipping in underneath the wire, Apple has met it's "end of 2023" deadline, with Porsche and Aston Martin showing off its massively updated CarPlay for driver information systems.

    Originally — and unusually — shown off as a sneak peek, Apple presented its vision for the future of CarPlay at WWDC in June 2022. Instead of being solely an infotainment system, the new CarPlay would entirely replace dashboards and driver information clusters.

    It was seen at the time as partly an attempt to keep car manufacturers from abandoning CarPlay, although that seems to have failed as a trend all by itself. Nonetheless, Apple promised that the new CarPlay would begin to be in cars by late 2023 — and now it is just barely managing to make that deadline.

    According to Cool Hunting, Apple has announced that Porsche and Aston Martin will use the new system — albeit in distinctly different customized ways.

    Watch the Latest from AppleInsider TV

    "With the next generation of CarPlay," Apple's Vice President of Human Interface Design Alan Dye told the publication, "we partnered with automakers to design an entirely new, unified experience that enables the very best of Apple and each particular automaker."

    "It is a blend of a user's personal experience of iPhone paired with a celebration of the strong brand identity of each automaker," he continued. 

    "The next generation of CarPlay also introduces a driving experience that leverages the advanced capabilities of the car along with the power of iPhone," said Dye. "We've designed a complete system of controls that allows for seamless interactions between vehicle functions alongside the features of iPhone."

    Apple has also shown images of what the new CarPlay will look like in the two different cars, although they are said to be preliminary.

    "We have long been committed to providing Porsche owners with the brand and sporty driving experience synonymous with the Porsche," said Michael Mauer, Porsche's Vice President of Style. "In addition to the sports car itself, digital offerings that are perfectly tailored to our customers are becoming increasingly important to the overall driving experience."

    "We recently brought the My Porsche app to CarPlay to provide drivers with even easier access to car functionality, and in the future we will be adding support for the next generation of CarPlay to Porsche models," continued Mauer. "We look forward to delivering an experience that adds the personal touch of a driver's iPhone to the exclusivity of a Porsche."

     

    Customizing CarPlay for Porsche

     

    Cool Hunting reports that the Porsche version of CarPlay has been adapted to feature the company's distinctive three-dial layout, including the speedometer.

    Circular graphics abound in this version, and it's an intentional nod to the gauges that have historically always featured in Porsche cars.

    These three dials appear directly in front of the driver, but to the side of the steering wheel there is also a more familiar CarPlay arrangement of music and other apps.

     

    Customizing CarPlay for Aston Martin

     

    "At Aston Martin we strive for excellence and performance and this was the key reason we chose to partner with Apple on the next generation of CarPlay," said Marco Mattiacci, Global Chief Brand and Commercial Officer. "The integration of the latest state-of-the-art technology combined with a bespoke intuitive interface is paramount to creating the ultimate Aston Martin customer experience."

    With Aston Martin, the customization of CarPlay has it appearing in part as a two-dial system to match the firm's minimalist design. It's also an acknowledgement of the car maker's history, as is how the controls are accented with British racing green.

    The Aston Martin driver information system will also include a tachometer that features the text, "Handbuilt in Great Britain."

    Aston Martin says that the new CarPlay will be introduced into its lineup during 2024. Porsche has not announced a launch date for its implementation.

    How it starts!


    Re: Welcome to Rennteam: Cars and Coffee... (photos)

    Took my GTS to a cars and coffee recently, and a dad came up with his son in a stroller. The kid had a shark blue GT 3 model and wanted to pic in front of my car. Another generation Porsche freak,

    Sorry about the vertical photo. Couldn’t figure out how to make it horizontal. Can someone tell me or do it for me?

    1996 Porsche 993 RSK 4.0 driven by Chris Harris...  E0F26BDD-E91B-4EF4-964B-7C4204B9E420.gif

    "Today, it feels like you can’t open YouTube or open a magazine without hearing about yet another resto-modded Porsche 911, so it takes something really special to attract our attention, and to get Chris Harris embracing a new and arguably more stylish persona just to get behind the wheel.

    That’s where Tuthill’s latest creation, the RSK, comes in. Based on a 993-generation 911 RS, it has been fully restored from bare metal, is finished in the wonderful Ferrari colour of Verde Francesca, and most importantly, is powered by a naturally aspirated 4.0-litre flat-six with four-valve heads derived from those fitted to the ballistic, 11,000rpm Tuthill 911K.

    The result is a sub-1,200kg stunner with an 8,000rpm redline, which is reported to have a better power-to-weight ratio than the current 992-generation 911 GT3, while remaining surprisingly approachable thanks to its billet callipers with carbon-ceramic brakes, Tuthill’s adjustable dampers, and an advanced electric power steering system.

    As tradition dictates, Chris puts the RSK through its paces on a slightly damp circuit, before exploring its capabilities on the road, and entering the parallel dimension of ‘Crankshaft 1996’. Will this be ‘just’ another mega-bucks 911 with a few modern touches, or has Tuthill pulled it out of the bag yet again? Watch the film to find out..."
