Porsche 911 GT3 Spied Trying to Hide its Manual Transmission
Jul 19, 2016 - 9:49 AM - by AutoGuide.com

The Porsche 911 GT3 is getting a facelift and thereís a surprise for sports car purists.

Spy photographers have caught the Porsche 911.2 GT3 testing once again, but this time around, one prototype had its gear shifter hidden. And thatís likely because Porsche is testing a manualtransmission on the facelifted 911 GT3, meaning it will make a return sooner than originally anticipated. Thanks to the Porsche 911 R, the German automaker has a manual transmission it can use in the 911 GT3 and thereís even more evidence that itís coming, with the lack of paddles on the steering wheel and no gear indicator on the tachometer.

As for the Porsche 911 GT3ís exterior, you can expect more aggressive styling and tweaks to its aerodynamics, while it will likely feature the same 4.0-liter engine with around 500 horsepower like the one found in the 911 R and GT3 RS.

2017 Porsche 911 Turbocharged Engines Put to the Test
Jun 30, 2016 - 9:58 AM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
Itís hard to tell if you have to sell out to be successful, or if the successful have to sell out. Ice Cube went from rapping about police brutality and racial profiling to making kidís movies likeAre we There Yet. Taylor Swift moved from being a successful country artist to world domination with pop songs. And Porsche went from making iconic sports cars to making the ever popular Cayenne, Macan and Panamera.

Those four-door vehicles immediatelybecame the best-selling Porsches, and people stopped thinking about the company as a sports car maker and started thinking of them as a luxury brand.

Fortunately, the 911 has been seriously updated, and by the looks of it, the automaker hasnít sold out and certainly hasnít forgotten the car that put it on the map so many years ago. To demonstrate that it has not strayed from its roots, we had a chance to drive the vehicle as part of the 911 Grand Tour, an event thatís taking place across Canada to showcase the latest and greatest changes to the iconic 911.

Of course, that original masterpiece Iím referring to is the first 911, born in 1963. A car with an uncompromised approach to speed, it featured a flat air-cooled engine at the back of the car, over the rear wheels. Its performance was revered, creating an unmistakable aura of coolness. Seen on the roads today, an old 911 is easily identifiable by its unique design. When one drives past, everyone swoons.

More than 50 years later, the car is still using this rear-engine layout and a design that hasnít changed a whole lot over the years. But somehow, new 911s donít have that same mystique that the old vehicles had. Why is that? Have we become accustomed to the look? Is the sheen of a high-end interior and high-tech driving aids detracting from whatís an evolution of an iconic car? Are they simply too popular? Or have we all just forgotten about Porsche, as new sports cars like the Nissan GT-R, Mercedes-AMG GT and Jaguar F-Type have hit the road.

2017 Porsche Panamera Bows with Sportier, Sleeker Styling
Jun 28, 2016 - 5:22 PM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
The 2017 Porsche Panamera has been introduced at a special event in Berlin, Germany.

The event kicked off with a bizarre fashion show of sorts along with an artistic presentation showing glimpses of the next-generation sedan. The German automaker also placed an emphasis on contradiction, highlighting the stage with a breakdancer and a ballerina, as a way to point at the Panameraís contrasting abilities to be both sporty and luxurious.

As expected, the new Panamera sticks to a familiar design but boasts a sleeker, sportier style than its predecessor. The second-generation model will also be completely built in Leipzig, Germany with the company investing heavily into its factory for production.

At its launch, the Porsche Panamera will offer three high-performance engines, at least in Europe. At the top of the range is the Porsche Panamera Turbo, sporting a redesigned 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with 550 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. The standard Porsche Panamera 4S model will come with a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 with 440 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. There is also a diesel-turbo V8 engine sporting 422 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque, although itís unclear whether that will head to the U.S. All powerplants are mated to an eight-speed, dual-clutch PDK transmission and Porsche promises that a pair of high-performance plug-in hybrid variants will join the lineup at a future date.

The model will also feature new autonomous driving technologies, with the capability of self-driving and self-braking at speeds up to 37 mph. The cabin has also been overhauled with an all-new interior, sporting fewer buttons and switches without sacrificing functionality. Owners will be able to interact with their vehicles through a touchpad with similar gestures as a smartphone or tablet.

Porsche was also quick to brag that the 2017 Panamera lapped the Nurburgring in 7 minutes and 38 seconds, making it comparable to the Porsche 997 GT3. That also means the Porsche Panamera has dethroned the Alfa Romeo Giulia (7:39) as the fastest luxury sedan on the Nurburgring.

Photos of the Less Ugly 2017 Porsche Panamera Leak
Jun 23, 2016 - 8:03 PM - by AutoGuide.com

After months of spy photos and teasers, photos of the 2017 Porsche Panamera have leaked.

Instagram user porsche919hybrid posted photos of the next-generation Porsche Panamera, which is expected to make its debut next week in Germany. But it looks like it wonít be much of a surprise, now that we can see the new Panamera completely undisguised. Overall, the sedan gets a sleeker body while the revised front end looks sportier than before. The awkward hunchback design has essentially been eliminated, giving way to a stylish rear-end design that looks inspired by the 911. Overall, the design looks more like a four-door coupe, and that should bode well for shoppers.

Although details of the 2017 Porsche Panamera wonít be announced until it debuts next week, we do know it will ride on the Volkswagen Groupís MSB platform and you can expect to see new versions of the current 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6, 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 and hybrid powertrains.
