PORSCHE 356-360-64

CAYENNE / GT4 Clubsport R-GT

Five doors that are open to any adventure. With a new, dynamic design and a new generation of efficient, turbocharged engines. With outstanding digital connectivity that brings the whole world into the cockpit. With versatility, quality and new cutting-edge driver assistance systems that offer both driver and passengers extraordinary comfort. This is how the Cayenne makes the Porsche experience even more fascinating, even more diverse. And yet remains what it has always been: a genuine sports car.

Porsche treated the world to an awesome, fully functional Porsche Cayman rally car concept based on the GT4 Clubsport race car. It had everything: the lights, the power, the paint job. But at the time, the company made it clear it was just a one-off concept. That changes today, as the company announced it will start building the rally car, and it will be ready for racing in 2020.

MACAN

The Porsche Macan (Type 95B) is a five-door luxury crossover SUV produced by the German car manufacturer Porsche from 2014. It is built in Leipzig, Germany. The Macan range includes many variants, including the Macan, Macan S, Macan S Diesel, Macan GTS and the Macan Turbo. Initially announced in November 2010 as a development project,and formally announced by Porsche in March 2011, the "Macan" model name was decided in 2012.This is the Javanese word for tiger.The Macan was originally known by its code name Cajun, a portmanteau of Cayenne Junior (not to be confused with Porsche-Diesel Junior tractor).

PANAMERA

The Porsche Panamera is an executive car (E-segment in Europe) manufactured by the German automobile manufacturer Porsche.It is front-engined and has a rear-wheel-drive layout, with all-wheel drive versions also available. It is the only sedan manufactured by Porsche as part of its strategy of expanding its market. The production version of the Porsche Panamera was unveiled at the 13th Auto Shanghai International Automobile Show in Shanghai, China, on April 2009. In 2011, hybrid and diesel versions were launched. In April 2013, a facelift to the Panamera was announced, making its debut again at the Shanghai Auto Show. A plug-in hybrid version, the Panamera S E-Hybrid, was released in the U.S. market in November 2013. The Panamera range received a re-design in 2016.

PANAMERICAN

The Porsche Panamericana is a concept automobile produced by Porsche AG. It was designed by Dutchman Harm Lagaay along with Steve Murkett (designers) and Ulrich Bez (technical director) to preview some design features that would be on the upcoming 993 generation 911. It was also built as a gift for Ferry Porsche for his 80th birthday. The name comes from the famous Carrera Panamericana race that was held in the 1950s.

The Porsche Panamericana was intended to be only a concept car, and although Lagaay hoped that his creation would be produced at least in small series in 1992, the growing financial crisis at Porsche put an end to his wishes. However, the car had an influence in the development of the 993 911 Targa and Boxster. The Panamericana was shown at the 1989 Frankfurt Motor Show, after a development period of only six months.

It was built on the chassis of a 911 (964) Carrera 4 cabriolet and its bodywork was built with plastic and carbon fiber panels. An outstanding characteristic of the car were its wide wheel covers with the objective to have enough room for various sizes of rims and tires, so if necessary it could be transformed into an off-road car.

The three-part Speedline rims used on the concept were made exclusively for this Panamericana. The roof line was homogeneously streamlined and sloped gently towards the rear engine deck. It featured a removable waterproof fabric top that could be attached by a pink zipper. Various roof configurations were possible, and the car was in fact a hybrid of a Targa, convertible, coupe and off-roader.

When viewed from the front its style has a resemblance with the 996 and the Boxster—as could be expected, since Lagaay also has designed the Boxster. Despite its un-streamlined wheels, its aerodynamic drag coefficient was only 0.30.

C88

The C88 was a prototype family car designed for the Chinese market in 1994 by Porsche in response to the Chinese government's invitation to a number of international automotive manufacturers for a new range of cars. It was completed in four months by Porsche engineers and was displayed to the public at the 1994 Beijing Auto Show. The prototype is now on display in the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.

The four-door compact saloon body was unlike any other Porsche and did not feature the Porsche badge anywhere. It was designed with only one child seat--reflecting Chinese population control policy--and the prototype was presented by CEO Wendelin Wiedeking himself, who learned his speech in Mandarin. According to Porsche Museum director Dieter Landenberger, "The Chinese government said thank you very much and took the ideas for free, and if you look at Chinese cars now, you can see many details of our C88 in them."

The C88 was intended to broaden the market for Porsche designs to India, where it was also unsuccessful. Porsche has more recently engineered small cars for a range of manufacturers--including the Audi RS2, Lada Samara and SEAT Ibiza.

MISSION E

A sports car that covers over 300 miles with superb performance—but without a drop of gasoline? Welcome to the future: The Mission E electric concept car.

Mission E represents the future. A possible future. A fascinating future. This concept shows what the first purely electric sports car in the brand’s history could look like. And how it meets every Porsche standard in terms of performance, fuel efficiency, driving dynamics, and everyday practicality—based on revolutionary technology. And of course with a timeless, elegant, aesthetic form. In other words, it is the 911 of e-cars. Mission E doesn’t just make one statement, but several at once.

It’s a sports car. There’s no doubt about that. But it’s not the sports car you might expect. Its powertrain is completely new, but, like that of every Porsche, is based on technology tested in motorsports. Two permanent magnet synchronous motors (PSMs), similar to those in the 919 Hybrid that won Le Mans, propel the car and recover energy when braking. One of them powers the rear axle, the other the front axle. With a combined output of more than 600 hp (440 kW), they catapult the Mission E to 60 miles per hour in less than 3.5 seconds, and to 124 miles per hour in less than 12 seconds. The PSMs are the turbos among electric motors. They convert electrical energy into propulsion very efficiently and smoothly and build up relatively little heat in the process. This means that they cool down quickly. Whether a Porsche has a combustion engine or a purely electric powertrain, it needs to be able to perform on a race track.
