World premiere of the Cayenne Turbo and 911 GT3 with Touring Package
Porsche at the IAA 2017
There will be a double Porsche premiere at the 67th International Motor Show (IAA), which takes place from September 12 to 24, 2017: The Stuttgart-based sports car manufacturer will crown the recently unveiled and completely redeveloped Cayenne model line at the event in Frankfurt. There will also be an addition to the 911 models.
Following the spectacular world premiere of the Cayenne with 250 kW (340 hp) and the Cayenne S with 324 kW (440 hp) in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, the new top-of-the-range model is set to make its debut. With a powerful drive, innovative chassis systems and active aerodynamics, the new Cayenne Turbo achieves the driving dynamics of a sports car. What’s more, Porsche will also showcase the 911 GT3 with Touring Package in Frankfurt. The purist, high-performance sports car is only available with a manual six-speed transmission and has a variable rear spoiler instead of the fixed rear wing. At 700 hp, the Porsche GT2 RS is the most powerful 911 of all time and will celebrate its trade fair premiere.
Completely new development: The new generation of the Cayenne
The new Cayenne Turbo will once again raise the bar for sporty performance in its segment. The four-litre V8 biturbo engine delivers 404 kW (550 hp). The Porsche Active Aerodynamics including adaptive roof spoiler, controlled three-chamber air suspension, mixed tyres and a new, high-performance brake provide the perfect basis for increased driving dynamics. With options such as the electric roll stabilisation system (PDCC) or rear-axle steering, the SUV offers the performance of a true sports car. The new Cayenne Turbo can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 286 km/h.
The Cayenne and Cayenne S with six-cylinder V-engines are also new developments. More powerful and significantly more efficient engines combine with the new eight-speed Tiptronic S to spontaneously convert the driver's desires into acceleration, pulling power and best-in-class performance. Thanks to its sports car genes, the completely new lightweight construction of the chassis delivers excellent driving dynamics that were previously impossible in this segment. The new driving dynamics systems play an essential role here, and also set the vehicle even further apart in terms of the driving comfort of a high-end saloon. Going off-road is also easier, as the driver can now choose between five different drive and chassis modes, depending on the terrain.
Two exceptional sports cars: 911 GT3 with Touring Package and 911 GT2 RS
The 911 GT3 with Touring Package is a new equipment variant to add to the well-known GT sports car. Technically, the legendary high-performance sports car is unchanged with a powerful 368 kW (500 hp) naturally aspirated engine; visually, however, it is more reserved. The usual dominant rear wing is replaced with the active spoiler from the 911 Carrera models. Inside, the driver and passenger are greeted by a leather interior. In line with the puristic concept, the two-seater is only available with a manual six-speed transmission, allowing it to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds. The maximum speed is 316 km/h.
With its powerful 515 kW (700 hp) biturbo six-cylinder engine, the 911 GT2 RS is currently the most powerful and fastest 911 of all time. The 911 GT2 RS accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds, achieving a top speed of 340 km/h. Traditionally, the GT sports car transmits its power via the rear wheels, with its excellent driving dynamics coming to the fore through the extraordinary driving experience. High proportions of aluminium, carbon and magnesium ensure the consistently lightweight construction of the sports car, which weighs 1,470 kilograms with a full fuel tank. Another special feature is that Porsche Design has teamed up with Porsche Motorsport to develop the 911 GT2 RS Chronograph exclusively for future owners of the high-performance sports car.
