Ultra-Exclusive Porsche 911 Trim Marks 60 Years of Owners Clubs

Porsche's seventh-generation 911 has only been at Porsche dealerships since February, but the sports car specialist is already coming out with a special-edition model that could make even the biggest collector jealous. Featuring exclusive touches like a Brewster Green exterior and screened lettering of the owner's name in the trim, the Porsche 911 Club Coupe commemorates 60 years of Porsche Clubs and will only be available to a handful of lucky members.

Porsche claims that its first owners club started in 1952 in Germany with only 13 members, and to recognize that fact the same number of 911 Club Coupes will be produced. Today, there are more than 181,000 Porsche Club members, and they'll have to enter a drawing at www.porsche.com/911-club- coupe by July 16 for a chance to win the privilege of buying the bespoke 911. Based on the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S, the Club Coupe adds a SportDesign exterior package, 20-inch SportTechno wheels and illuminated door sills that include 60th anniversary and model designation logos.

"The 911 Club Coupe's very limited production is a highly attractive way to showcase Porsche's rich history with its customers, but only the luck of the draw is going to decide who its owners will be," said Larry Bedell, general manager of Porsche of Nashua, a New Hampshire Porsche dealer. "On the other hand, there are plenty of 911 Carrera S models available to members and non-members alike, and they've been completely redesigned for the 2012 model year to be more powerful and stylish than ever."

While the 911 Club Coupe gets a Powerkit providing 30 additional horsepower, the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S's 400-horsepower, 3.8-liter boxer engine is no slouch, pumping out 15 more horsepower compared to the previous generation. The redesigned 911 is also lower, longer, wider and 100 pounds lighter than its predecessor, allowing the 2012 Carrera S to jet from zero to 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds and reach a top speed of 188 mph.

The latest generation of the Porsche 911 offers levels of performance previously unseen from the iconic sports car, but driving enthusiasts on an unlimited quest for power may want to save up for the forthcoming Porsche 918 Spyder. A plug-in hybrid boasting more than 770 horsepower, the 918 Spyder will combine a mid-mounted 570-horsepower V8 engine and dual electric motors to not only achieve eye- opening performance, but also potentially return up to 78 mpg.

Even in all-electric mode, the Porsche 918 Spyder is expected to reach a top speed of 90 mph, while a shift to full power should boost that number to around 200 mph. Porsche recently announced that it has begun prototype testing, and the 918 Spyder should go on sale in the United States late next year as a 2014 model. Though it won't be quite as rare as the 911 Club Coupe, there will only be 918 of the super sports cars built.

"It's likely that the 918 Spyder will only be a fantasy for most Porsche fans, but the supercar features a host of innovative technologies that should make their way into the rest of the lineup soon enough," added Bedell. "Beyond its advanced hybrid drivetrain, the 918 Spyder uses carbon fiber reinforced plastic and adaptive aerodynamics in new ways to create a mix of power and fuel efficiency that was previously unheard of."

Porsche Reveals First-Ever U.S. Diesel Model in New York

2013 Cayenne Diesel to Mix Massive Torque with Class-Leading Fuel Efficiency

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-pDVgP2oY12U/T3tpRrepmqI/AAAAAAAHOe4/zRqnC1VKi1s/s800/2013-Porsche-Cayenne-Diesel-11.jpg

NASHUA, N.H., April 10, 2012 -- While it is never one to shy away from faster acceleration, luxury automaker Porsche has turned to clean-diesel technology to also improve the fuel efficiency of its newest Cayenne model. Porsche pulled the wraps off of its 2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel sport utility at the 2012 New York International Auto Show last week, unveiling what will become the first diesel-powered Porsche to be sold in the U.S. market.

When it arrives at Porsche dealerships in September, the 2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel is expected by the automaker to offer a best-in-class fuel economy of 28 mpg on the highway. While similar fuel efficiency in a gas engine might restrict performance, Porsche's 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel engine will deliver an impressive 406 pound-feet of torque to help the Cayenne Diesel reach 0 - 60 mph in 7.2 seconds. That is 0.2 seconds faster than the gas-powered Cayenne with the same eight-speed automatic transmission.

"The Cayenne Diesel's large amount of low-end torque means you'll get more response when you step on the pedal and will have an easier time towing gear to your vacation destination this summer." said Larry Bedell, general manager of New Hampshire Porsche dealer Porsche of Nashua. "Also, with the fuel efficiency of diesel technology, those benefits come along with five more miles per gallon compared to the similarly equipped gas-powered model."

Considering that it is Porsche's first diesel model in the United States, the Cayenne Diesel comes equipped with a safeguard to prevent drivers or their passengers from accidentally filling up with gas by habit. A mechanical component in the fuel tank filler neck only opens the locking mechanism when a larger-diameter diesel fuel pump nozzle is inserted. When Cayenne Diesel drivers do refill with the right fuel, they'll be able to travel for up to 740 miles on a single tank, meaning fewer stops between fill-ups.

Another new Porsche, the next-generation Boxster, also made an appearance in New York last week following its global debut in Geneva in March. With a larger platform, the 2013 Porsche Boxster now affords occupants more interior space when the new fully electric top is closed. The Porsche convertible also received a style upgrade complete with new 20-inch wheels and square-shaped headlights influenced by the upcoming Porsche 918 Spyder plug-in hybrid supercar.

The base 2013 Porsche Boxster features a new flat-six direct-injection engine producing 265 horsepower, which is good for 10 more horsepower than the larger outgoing engine. When equipped with the optional seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission, those models can reach 60 mph in 5.4 seconds, while the 315-horsepower Boxster S speeds up that time to 4.7 seconds. Porsche expects that its lighter, faster and more powerful new Boxster will also be roughly 15 percent more fuel efficient than the previous generation when it arrives at dealerships in the early summer.

"Drop-tops are favorites of summer drivers, and the new Boxster will be here just in time for Porsche fans to enjoy the sun," added Bedell. "Whether they're driving up to Lake Winnipesaukee or south to the Cape, local Boxster owners will be getting around with more power, better fuel efficiency and unparalleled style."

All-New Porsche 911 Prepares to Take the Stage


NASHUA, N.H.
-- With its rich history of on-road performance and motorsports success, the Porsche 911 has become sports car royalty. Since its debut at Porsche dealerships in September 1964 as a 1965 model, the 911 has enjoyed nearly five decades of redesigns that have been evolutionary rather than revolutionary and have always drawn from the original. That tradition is expected to continue as the next-generation 2012 Porsche 911 prepares to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show taking place September 13 through September 25.

As the only car in Porsche's lineup with a direct link to the automaker's early history, rolling out a new Porsche 911 is a special occasion, and Porsche has gone through pains to keep the sports car camouflaged during road testing. The information that has leaked out points to some significant changes, but the exterior is still clearly a Porsche and, perhaps more importantly, clearly a 911.

"The Porsche 911 is one of the most recognizable vehicles in the world; everybody knows what a 911 is and that it is special," said Larry Bedell, general manager of Porsche of Nashua, a New Hampshire Porsche dealer. "Porsche knows this, so any updates will only build upon the 911's signature look, not change it. Other vehicles have stepped away from their past throughout the years, but the Porsche 911 has stuck to its proven formula, which means engines in the rear and driving dynamics unlike anything else on the road."

According to Car and Driver magazine, notable changes for the next-generation 911 include a slight increase in size over the current model found at Porsche dealerships, adding up to a 2.2-inch gain in body length and four more inches of width in the wheelbase. This extra room will be needed for a hybrid drivetrain that will be available in 2016. While the automaker may be known more for its power, Porsche already has quite a bit of experience with hybrid technology through its Panamera S Hybrid and Cayenne S Hybrid, as well as the 911 GT3 R Hybrid racing car.

Power for the 2012 911 will come from two different engines when it debuts at Porsche dealers this fall. The base 911 will replace its 3.6-liter engine with a 3.4-liter direct-injected flat-six that gets a slightly improved 350 horsepower. Meanwhile, the 911 Carrera S will feature a 3.8-liter flat-six powerplant that uses direct-injection technology to produce 400 horsepower. Fans can expect the 911 Turbo to remain tops in power when it joins the lineup later on.

Another big change in the new 911 will be the addition of a seven-speed manual gearbox in place of the former six-cog unit, which should provide more relaxed cruising on the highway. There will also be a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic available. With its refined drivetrain and a weight loss of 55 pounds compared with the 2011 model due to increased use of high-strength steel, the 2012 Porsche 911 netted a 12 to 15 percent fuel efficiency boost in European cycle testing. EPA fuel economy ratings have yet to be released in the United States.

"The next-generation 911 isn't about breaking the mold; it's about refining what is already an outstanding design," Bedell noted. "Some automakers would take a 'if it's not broken don't fix it' attitude, but Porsche recognizes that progressively massaging the 911 design creates a world-beating sports car year after year. That's something to be proud of."

Paint It Black: Cayman S Is Latest Porsche to Go Dark


NASHUA, NH --
New Porsche Cayman S owners will soon discover that there is more power on the dark side. Porsche has added the 2012 Cayman S to its lineup of Black Edition cars, which feature black paint, popular option packages and, for the Cayman as well as the Boxster S, an extra 10 horsepower. The Cayman S Black Edition will round out Porsche's black lineup when the sports car arrives in limited numbers at Porsche dealerships like Porsche of Nashua late this summer.

Only 500 Black Edition 2012 Porsche Cayman S models will roll off the assembly line, making it the rarest of all the Porsche Black Edition models. As the name suggests, the Cayman S Black Edition will offer a black exterior, complemented by a matching black interior and 19-inch black wheels pulled from the Boxster Spyder.

Porsche included some of its most popular option packages in the Cayman S Black Edition, including Bi-Xenon headlights, automatic climate control and auto-dimming interior and exterior mirrors, which will help deflect both the sun's glare and stares from admirers. The car gets its extra horsepower from a 330-horsepower 3.4-liter six-cylinder engine and will come with an MSRP of $67,500.

"The great thing about the Black Edition Porsches is that they include some of the most popular option packages at a lower price," said Larry Bedell, general manager of Porsche of Nashua, a New Hampshire Porsche dealer. "They're limited, so they'll be collectors' items, but they're also a better value and great cars for blasting around New England's roads."

In January, Porsche revealed the 2012 911 Black Edition in coupe and cabriolet models, and, unlike the Cayman S Black Edition, they're available in two different shades: Basalt Black Metallic or Solid Black. The special 911 sports cars are equipped with 911 Turbo II two-color rims that come accented with black inner spokes that reveal the large brakes and black calipers. Power comes from the same 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine found in the 911 Carrera, which means 345 horsepower and a top speed of 180 mph. With a combined run of 1,911 units, these limited edition 911s will be snapped up by enthusiasts, who can expect an MSRP of $81,300 for the coupe and $91,300 for the cabriolet.

At the other end of the Black Edition lineup is the 2012 Porsche Boxster S Black Edition. The car's 3.4-liter six-cylinder engine is set behind the driver's seat and produces 320 horsepower. When fitted with the PDK transmission, the Boxster S returns an impressive 29 highway miles per gallon.

Like the Cayman S Black Edition, the black Boxster comes with Bi-Xenon headlights, auto-dimming interior and exterior mirrors and automatic climate control, as well as black Boxster Spyder rims. Rarer than the 911 Black Edition, only 987 Black Edition Boxsters will ship globally at an MSRP of $65,200, roughly $3,200 cheaper than a standard Boxster S with the same options.

"Each Black Edition Porsche offers customers a chance at driving a sports car that they'll likely never see driven by anyone else on the road," Bedell said. "Driving a Porsche already means that you're standing out from the crowd, but with these Black Edition models, you're doing so with an added boldness that will make other drivers wonder who might be behind the wheel."


Porsche Pumps Up the Power in Its Cayenne, Panamera and 911


NASHUA, NH --
The word slow isn't in Porsche's vocabulary, and while recent news that the automaker is packing more power into their upcoming Cayenne, Panamera and 911 models may come as no surprise, it is no less thrilling for Porsche enthusiasts. Soon, New Hampshire Porsche dealerships like Porsche of Nashua will play host to some of the most powerful Porsches ever built, with each producing at least 500 horsepower.

While the standard 2012 Porsche Cayenne Turbo SUV and Porsche Panamera Turbo sport sedan will maintain their prodigious 510 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, the 2012 Cayenne Turbo S, expected to arrive at the end of 2011, and the Panamera Turbo S, available this spring at Porsche dealers, are both expected to reach 550 horsepower.

"The Panamera Turbo and Cayenne Turbo were already incredible feats of engineering, but now the engineers at Porsche have outdone themselves," said Larry Bedell, general manager of Porsche of Nashua, a New Hampshire Porsche dealer. "There's nothing like the Panamera or the Cayenne, because they still drive like a Porsche even when comfortably carrying four people."

Both vehicles feature an impressive 553 pound-feet of torque, but the Panamera can temporarily make the leap to 590 pound-feet with the help of its overboost function. That extra power enables the Panamera to accelerate from a standstill to 60 mph in a scant 3.6 seconds, making it the quickest production sedan in the world.

For those looking for top power in a pure sports car, the newly announced 2011 911 GT3 RS 4.0 is the most powerful naturally-aspirated 911 ever. Driven by a four-liter six-cylinder boxer engine packed with titanium connecting rods and forged pistons, the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 kicks out 500 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque without needing a turbocharger.

The 911 GT3 RS 4.0 also has speed in spades, hitting 60 mph in 3.8 seconds, reaching 124 mph in less than 12 seconds and maxing out at 193 mph. With a limited production of only 600 vehicles, many of which won't reach the United States, customers will likely have to act fast when the vehicle goes on sale later this year.

While the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 comes in just Carrara White, color choices and more abound when buying a Cayenne or Panamera. Optional for the 2012 Cayenne are revised leather packages and decorative stitching, along with precious Yachting Mahogany wood. Outside, both the new Panamera and Cayenne will come available with Bi-Xenon headlights to illuminate the darkest roads, and starting in June Panamera drivers can redefine "high speed Internet" with the model's wireless Internet access option.

"Porsche continuously pushes the envelope of what cars can do," Bedell added. "When the Cayenne Turbo was first released, nobody could believe that a full-size luxury SUV could accelerate and turn like it did, and they just keep making it better. The Panamera also redefines what a luxury sedan can and should be ??? comfortable, quiet and faster than nearly everything you'll see during daily commutes."


Porsche 911 Named Most Dependable Vehicle by J.D. Power and Associates

Porsche of Nashua is proud to announce that customers can now find the most dependable vehicle available in North America on its lot. J.D. Power and Associates has named the Porsche 911 sports coupe as the most dependable vehicle on the road in the 2011 Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS).

For sports-car enthusiasts, the award shows that the quality of the Porsche 911 is more than cosmetic. High-performance cars often emphasize style and horsepower over durability, leaving owners with auto-repair bills that match their speeding tickets. The 911 may still encourage a heavy foot on the pedal, but it won't have owners pulling into the repair shop after every spirited sprint down the highway.

"Drivers may be thinking more about speed or style than dependability when they invest in a luxury sports car, but that doesn't mean it's acceptable for that vehicle to have more problems than common cars like Hondas or Toyotas after three years," said Larry Bedell, general manager of Porsche of Nashua, a New Hampshire Porsche dealer. "The Porsche 911 delivers the on-road performance that drivers expect in a sports car and the best reliability of any vehicle on the road, proving again that Porsche's engineers deliver exceptional value to buyers."

The 2011 VDS analyzed issues with vehicles from the 2008 model year during a recent 12-month period, tracking how many problems were reported for every 100 vehicles of a given model. While the average model had 151 problems per 100 vehicles, or about 1.5 problems per vehicle, the Porsche 911 line had only 68 problems per 100 vehicles, less than half the average. The performance of the 911 suggests that many vehicles had no issues reported.

Compiled from the responses of more than 43,700 vehicle owners who evaluated 202 different vehicle problems, the 2011 VDS found that industry-wide dependability is at its highest level since the inception of the study in 1990. While domestic brands have made significant improvements in their dependability in recent years, they still trail import brands such as Porsche by 18 problems per 100 vehicles this year.

Beyond its 911 line, Porsche was also recognized in this year's VDS for its overall production value. Study participants voted Porsche the best German manufacturer, while J.D. Power's market researchers rated Porsche's main plant in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, Germany as the best car factory in world, based on the long-term quality of the vehicles it produces.

Porsche's continued focus on quality and the resulting accolades helped the company to increase U.S. sales by 36% last month, the best March for Porsche dealers since 2007. These latest figures add to Porsche's strong start to 2011, with sales in the first quarter up 34% over the same period last year.

"The long-term quality of Porsche vehicles comes not only from flawless manufacturing at the factory, but from customer-focused service plans that specialized dealers like ours can put in place to maximize the life of each vehicle," Bedell added. "This quality of both craft and care has been carried over from the 911 to newer models like the Cayenne crossover and Panamera sedan, so customers can be confident that any Porsche we offer is one of the best-made vehicles in the world."


Eco-Friendly Fun: Porsche Supercharges the Hybrid


NASHUA, NH --
With the introduction of the Panamera in 2009, Porsche brought its expertise at developing high-performance sports cars to the luxury sedan. In 2011, the new Panamera hybrid will carry on this tradition of innovation.

Without any sacrifice to the Panamera's formidable power, the 2012 Panamera S Hybrid promises to be the most fuel-efficient car Porsche has ever made. In fact, Porsche claims the new Panamera hybrid will get more horsepower per gram of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions than the Toyota Prius, long considered the gold standard for eco-friendly hybrids. Porsche's newest hybrid will debut at the Geneva Motor Show and is expected to be available at New England Porsche dealers later this year.

The Panamera S Hybrid will run off a nickel-metal hydride battery stored in the floor of the trunk that will be charged with electrical energy produced by coasting and braking. Porsche reports that the new Panamera will have an electric-only range of 1.2 miles up to speeds of 53 mph, and Autoweek.com claims that Porsche is also working on a lithium-ion battery version that would plug in to extend the electric-only range.

"With the 2012 Panamera Hybrid, Porsche is proving that it is possible to have a gasoline-electric hybrid that is terrific fun to drive," said Larry Bedell, general manager of Porsche of Nashua, a New Hampshire Porsche dealer. "Aside from the remarkable fuel economy, you'll have no idea you're actually driving a hybrid."

The numbers confirm that the Porsche Panamera S Hybrid will deliver on performance. The supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine produces 333 horsepower, while the brushless electric motor, in addition to functioning as the starting motor and generator, contributes an additional 47 horsepower. The total combined horsepower of 380, alongside the 159 grams per kilometer of C02 produced by the hybrid, means the Panamera hybrid gets 2.4 horsepower per gram of CO2, a number better than the 1.5 horsepower per gram earned by the Toyota Prius,

The most inventive use to which Porsche has put the electric motor, however, is the hybrid Panamera's "sailing" feature, which it shares with the Cayenne Hybrid. Sailing allows the gas engine to shut down once it's brought the vehicle up to a cruising speed and shift completely to electric power. This allows the Panamera to travel for short periods using only electric power, even at cruising speeds of 103 miles per hour.

"The Panamera will have a few things in common with the Cayenne Hybrid," Bedell continued, "including its eight-speed automatic gearbox. New Hampshire Porsche drivers count on Porsche not only to innovate but also to stick with what works, and their hybrids are no different."

Porsche reports that the new Panamera has a top speed of 168 mph and will be able to go from 0 to 62 mph in 6 seconds. Other vehicles with such impressive numbers enjoy a long drink at the gas pump, but the Panamera S Hybrid is expected to average 34.5 combined city and highway mpg, which not only beats out the Mercedes-Benz S400 hybrid, but makes it the most fuel-efficient Porsche ever.

"Drivers who want all the highlights of traditional Porsches in an eco-friendly package won't be disappointed," said Bedell. "With the fantastic performance of the 2011 Porsche Panamera and this impressive fuel economy, how could they be?"
