Exterior Design Unmistakably Porsche

When you see a Porsche 718 Cayman or Boxster out on the open road, there’s no debating who made the vehicle. With a low, wide and sleek design that’s not restrained by conventional norms, the exterior design of these models delivers sporty and distinctive edges with clearly defined curves. The wide stance of both vehicles is not only an aggressive look, but plays an important part in capturing the downdraft that helps both cars stay glued to the road. Large arches allow for wheels up to 20 inches in diameter. The door contours are not only beautiful, but direct wind into the large air intakes on the side of the car to help propel the turbocharged engine. Head to the rear of both the Cayman and Boxster and make a close inspection to see how the four LED brake lights, slimline accent trim and automatic wing all work together for both function and beauty. Take some time today to head to Porsche of Tucson to test drive the new 718 Cayman and Boxster. You’ll have the time of your life.

With the ability to go from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds, the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is the fastest street legal 911 ever produced. Powered by a twin-turbo six-cylinder engine that produces 700 horsepower, the latest 911 has a top track speed of 211 miles per hour. This limited production vehicle will be available at Porsche of Tucson in early 2018 with a base MSRP of $293,200.

Larger Turbos Push More Air

The 3.8L flat-six engine starts the same as the engine in the 911 Turbo S, but then the Porsche engineers added larger turbochargers, an additional cooling system and a customized seven-speed double clutch transmission to squeeze out every drop of performance. The cooling system uses a unique design that sprays water on the intercoolers during peak loads. By reducing the inlet temperature, this innovation offers optimal power even under the most severe conditions. The ability to harness all that horsepower and torque rests on the race-bred chassis that utilizes rear axle steering and ultra-high-performance tires to maintain control. The Porsche Stability Management system is tuned to let you experience all the thrills this new 911 can offer. You have the option to deactivate stability management and feel the wild rush that comes with letting this Porsche 911 off its leash.

Optional Package Saves Weight

The optional Weissach package trims the weight of the 911 GT2 RS by an additional 40 pounds, enhancing performance and efficiency. This package replaces many metal parts with carbon fiber equivalents, including the roof and anti-roll bars, as well as the axle end links. Magnesium wheels are also part of this package, reducing the overall weight by 25 pounds while improving the handling. The striking exterior styling of the new Porsche 911 is complemented by the sporty interior which abounds in red Alcantara black leather with contrasting red stitching and accents. It comes with a special GT2 RS Sport steering wheel, outfitted with paddle shifters to let you easily power through the gears.
