Porsche 911 Limited Edition

A limited edition Porsche 911 Turbo S to commemorate 40 years of the 911 turbo has been revealed. It is a 911 Turbo S Exclusive GB edition and is unique to the UK market and only 40 will be built.

The new variant has been designed to incorporate styling cues from the original 911 Turbo 930.  It features a black rear upper spoiler, Sport Classic wheels in black, black finished exterior door handles, and the black Porsche script along the sills.

Other special kit includes carbonfibre door sill guards with ‘911 Turbo S – Exclusive GB Edition’ in illuminated lettering, carbonfibre interior trim, including the PDK gear lever and bespoke floor mats with leather edging and decorative stitching.

The 911 Turbo S Exclusive GB Edition is available in a choice of three exterior colours: silver, white or red.

Porsche Macan unveiled

The Porsche Macan has made its debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show.  It is a compact SUV and will be a rival for the Range Rover Evoque and Jaguar’s new SUV.  The Macan is available to order now and prices start at £43,300.

All models come with PDK double clutch transmission and four wheel drive as standard.  The entry level model, Macan S, has a twin turbo, 3 litre V6 petrol engine and gives a 0-62mph of 5.4 seconds.

We’re trying to work out why a four wheel drive will need to be able to go from 0-62 in less than 6 seconds as it seems rather pointless if you are in a situation where four wheel drive is required.  What do you think?
