Cars   The 718 engine output has now been increased
Porsche 718 CaymanThe 718 Boxster GTS and 718 Cayman GTS engine output has now been increased to 365 horsepower thanks to a newly developed intake duct and an optimized turbocharger for the 2.5-litre, four-cylinder boxer engine. With these improvements, the engine delivers 15 horsepower more than the 718 S model and up to 35 horsepower more than its GTS predecessor models with naturally aspirated engines. The new range-topping mid-engine models are available with a six-speed manual transmission or optional seven-speed PDK.

Porsche 911 Carrera TThe new 911 Carrera T boasts several equipment features that are not available for the 911 Carrera, including a standard PASM sports chassis lowered by 20 mm, weight-optimized Sport Chrono Package, a shortened manual gear lever with red shift pattern, and Sport-Tex seat centres. The optional rear-axle steering and carbon-fibre full buckets seats, also not available for the 911 Carrera, can be had on the 911 Carrera T. The rear window and rear side windows are made from lightweight glass and the door trims feature opening loops.

PorscheThe new 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series is the most powerful and unique 911 Turbo S ever. The Coupé provides 607 hp and is limited to 500 units worldwide. In addition to a power increase of 27 hp, the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series is distinct from the standard 911 Turbo S due to its unique design, higher-quality materials and luxurious details. The sports car is intricately finished by hand in the new Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur at the headquarters in Zuffenhausen.

PorscheThe fastest and most powerful road-approved 911 is here. At the heart of this high-performance sports car is a 700 hp twin turbo flat six engine. Weighing in at 1,470 kg with a full fuel tank, the lightweight two-seater accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds. The rear-wheel drive Coupé has a top speed of 340 km/h, and with its near-motorsport drive technology, the new 911 GT2 RS bests its 3.6-litre predecessor by 80 hp and achieves a torque figure of 553 lb.-ft. (an increase of 36 lb.-ft.).
