New Cayenne Turbo Hits 60 in 3.7 Seconds

Porsche made a big splash at the recent Frankfurt International Motor Show, unveiling the 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo. The latest incarnation of the popular Cayenne has once again set the mark for performance in the SUV market, going from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds with a top track speed of 177 mph. Powered by a 4.0L V8 that produces 550 horsepower and a smile-raising 567 pound-feet of torque, the new Cayenne promises to raise the bar on fun. You can order your new Cayenne this winter at Porsche of Tucson and expect delivery in the fall of 2018.

Lightweight Chassis Boosts Performance

The new Porsche Cayenne Turbo features a lightweight chassis that combines air suspension with the Porsche Active Suspension Management system to give tighter handling and less body roll than ever before. Using the new three-chamber air suspension system helps the chassis to map a greater range of spring tension than previous models, improving both the comfort of the ride and the handling. You can choose from six different ride heights and five different terrain settings for the ultimate in control and clearance. Choose the default setting for the highway, and then adjust for rock, sand, mud or gravel as needed when you take your Cayenne on the trail. Optional rear-axle steering improves the control even more. Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control helps keep your Cayenne stable, while vector control adjusts the power to the wheels slightly to storm through those pinpoint curves.

Adaptive Spoiler Increases Efficiency

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo comes with an adaptive spoiler on the roof to increase efficiency while adding to the downward force on the rear axle. Used as an airbrake, the spoiler can also help you to stop quickly in the case of an emergency. The use of the spoiler decreases the length to come to a complete stop by almost seven feet from previous models when traveling at 155 mph. A new high-performance braking system comes standard on the Turbo, delivering a tungsten carbide coated layer applied to the cast-iron disc brakes to increase stopping power and cut down on brake dust.

More Horsepower Equals More Fun

The new V8 delivers 30 more horsepower than the current Cayenne Turbo model. Paired with the Porsce Traction Management system and a new 8-speed automatic transmission, that means greater acceleration, cruising comfort and ultimately, fun. Porsche has integrated the turbo chargers into a central layout, reducing the exhaust paths and improving responsiveness as you step on the accelerator. Stop in soon at Porsche of Tucson to see about putting your order in for the new Cayenne Turbo.

GT2 RS Most Powerful 911 of All Time

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.

Check in now to see about the possibility of ordering this true supercar by visiting Porsche of Tucson.

With the help of a new active anti-roll stabilization method called the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) Sport, the Porsche Panamera is breaking the laws of physics. The Panamera is the anti-typical European Saloon car. True, it does have four doors, is unbelievably comfortable and has plenty of legroom for fully grown adults, but unlike other saloon cars it hugs the road through hairpin corners and delivers the type of dynamic driving performance people have come to expect from a Porsche. You can put the Panamera through its paces and see how the PDCC improves handling by taking a test ride at Porsche of Tucson.

Electric Motor Controls Anti-Roll Bars

By utilizing an electric motor to control the anti-roll bars on the front and rear axles, the Porsche Panamera with PDCC is able to deliver the handling of a much smaller car. While one wheel is drawn into the body, the other is pushed away, reducing the car’s body roll and producing a smooth, aggressive ride. The electric motor replaces a hydraulic system that, while effective, used much more energy than the new version. All the components are conveniently located in the center of the anti-roll bar, creating a lightweight and practical unit that takes little space and is lightweight. By generating massive torque as you dive into a corner, the electrical PDCC offers much more control than any mechanical-only system.

Sport Turismo Delivers on All Fronts

The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo is just one of the many Panamera models to consider if you want the ultimate in performance and handling. With a 330-horsepower motor powering the large four-door sedan, you can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.2 seconds on your way to a top track speed of 160 mph. This Panamera is powered by a new twin-turbo V6 engine that utilizes a new layout to increase horsepower. By positioning the two turbo units between the cylinder banks, the exhaust stream travels a shorter distance and delivers a much quicker response when you step on the accelerator. Utilizing a central fuel injector inside the combustion chamber, the mixture of fuel and oxygen is optimized for increased power and efficiency.

Sophisticated Interior Offers Supreme Comfort

You expect a certain amount of luxury when purchasing a Porsche, and the Panamera does not disappoint. Choose from a variety of trim packages that include sumptuous leather and fine wood trim. Whether you want your Porsche Panamera to be more sporty, luxurious or both is completely up to you. With a wide range of options, you can personalize your Panamera to fulfill your dreams. Take a moment to stop by Porsche of Tucson and inspect the entire Panamera inventory to see how driving a Porsche is the thrill of a lifetime.

New 911 Turbo Cabriolet a Modern Engineering Feat

Calling the new Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet a “Magnificent Beast,” the reviewers at Motor Trend magazine say the latest Porsche entry is sure to turn heads, and keep them staring in your direction. Turn the driving mode knob to sport and the cool looks come to life. “The response underfoot is immediate and fully attentive,” they wrote. “The suspension becomes more playful, more rambunctious. Give the throttle a kick, and the metallic whirr of the turbos tickles your cochlear nerve receptors. Suddenly let off the gas, and the bark of the exhaust backfire in overrun is worth the price of admission.” In other words, driving the newest 911 is a hoot, which you can experience for yourself by taking a trip to Porsche of Tucson.

Puts the Power to the Pavement

Step on the throttle and there won’t be a lot of tire burning, which is good for your wallet and your track times. The new Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet sticks to the road like fly paper, resulting in sub three second times going from 0 to 60 mph. You can expect a quarter-mile run in the 11 second range, topping out at around 125 mph. “The way this car puts down power is magic,” wrote one reviewer. “I could stand on the throttle from about halfway around the skidpad, and it would barely break the rears (tires) loose on the exit.”

Choose from Two Trim Packages

As you might expect, the newest 911 doesn’t come cheap. The base model starts at around $174K, while the S package begins just above $200k. You get a few more horsepower in the S package (580 to 540 for the base) and your top track speed is 205 mph vs. 198. The S model also features a generous use of Carbon Fiber, cutting the weight and increasing performance and efficiency. Both models are loaded with standard features that add to the enjoyment of owning a Porsche. Heated leather seats, a GT sport steering wheel with shift paddles, on-board fire extinguisher and a killer infotainment system to supply tunes and hands-free communication are all part of the package.

Go Fast, Stop Fast

Both models of the Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet offer some serious braking systems, with large brake discs both front and rear. Other important safety features include the Porsche Side Impact Protection System, three-point automatic seat belts and automatically deploying safety bars. Put the top down and let the wind get in your hair to full enjoy the 911 Cabriolet experience when you take your test drive at Porsche of Tucson.

InnoDrive Helps Drivers Think Ahead

Now available in the new Porsche Panamera 4S, InnoDrive is like having a co-driver without all the nagging for bathroom breaks. Utilizing extremely precise data from the Porsche navigation unit, InnoDrive is a driving assistant that can accurately measure the upcoming route, speed limit and topography to select the ideal gear and initiate braking and acceleration as necessary. Learn more about InnoDrive when you visit Porsche of Tucson.

‘You Have to Take the Plunge’

It might take a leap of faith to take both feet off the pedals, but Porsche project manager Philip Markschlager says the results will be well worth it. “You have to take the plunge with InnoDrive, for starters,” he said. “But in trials it soon became clear: that happens pretty quickly.” The Panamera knows what to do when it comes to a traffic control sign, stopping or yielding, then making sure the coast is clear before accelerating on its way. InnoDrive is a giant leap in techonology on the way to autonomous, or self-driving, vehicles.

Data Processed Twice a Second

The InnoDrive system processes data twice a second to recalculate the data profile and constantly keep evaluating the situation two miles ahead. Calculating all the possible variables would take a huge supercomputer, so the Porsche Panamera adopts an optimality principle that throws out the least probable scenarios to concentrate on the ones that will have the most success. The means the onboard computer doesn’t have to run through the entire calculation of possible outcomes during each data processing run.

Panamera the Sporty Saloon

The image of the European Saloon car used to be one of long hoods, longer trunks and four doors that had enough room for your home sofa and fireplace. Enter the Porsche Panamera, the sporty saloon that looks as athletic as it feels. With a taut roof line that caps a sleek profile, the Panamera is the sedan for those who still get a thrill out of driving. Now Porsche engineers have created the next evolution of the Panamera, reconciling the contradictions between comfort and performance while delivering both dynamics and efficiency.

Sumptuous Interior Built for Comfort

With an interior as rich and sophisticated as a European mansion, the Porsche Panamera provides the comfort, driving dynamics, and technology to provide the perfect transportation solution in the 21st century. Now with Porsche Advanced Cockpit, the Panamera interior allows access to the most important functions with a simple touch. Experience the space, comfort and handling of the new Panamera when you drive one today at Porsche of Tucson.

The love affair with the Porsche 911 began in 1963 when the prototype was first shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show in preparation for its release in 1964. Now 53 years and seven iterations later, the 911 still holds the mantle as the preferred premium sports car for people who enjoy driving. The initial model came with an air-cooled six cylinder engine that produced 130 horsepower and a top speed around 130 miles per hour. The new 911 GT3 also comes with a six cylinder engine, but it generates 500 horsepower and makes the run from 0 to 60 in a blistering 3.2 seconds on its way to a top track speed of near 200 mph. The 911 comes in many flavors these days, which you can see for yourself by visiting Porsche of Tucson.

Porsche 911 Through the Years

1973 brought the first major iteration of the 911, producing a version that was longer than any other. Known as the “G” model, this 911 had large bumpers designed to meet U.S. crash standards. Three-point safety belts and large headrests added to the safety of the driver and passenger. The “G” version also brought the inception of the 911 Turbo in 1974. Performance increased through the years with the introduction of the first all-wheel drive model in 1988, the 911 Carrera 4, or 964. Horsepower was now up to 250, but that wasn’t the real story of this model. With more than 85 percent new components and a redesigned chassis, handling was vastly improved. This generation is in particular demand among Porsche 911 collectors.

993 One True Love of Collectors

Although any 911 brings a sparkle to the eye of someone truly infatuated with the Porsche mystique, the 993 is the one true love of many a collector. Released in 1993, this 911 was easy on the eye with a smooth, elegant styling. A lower slung front end, switch in headlight shape and exceptional dependability are just a few reasons why this model brings top price on the auction block today.

Water Cooling Next Breakthrough

The next generation of the Porsche 911 came in 1997, when the company added water cooling to the package. Now packing 300 horsepower, this model was also revolutionary in reducing emissions and increasing fuel efficiency. Horsepower increased again with the release of the 997, but it was 2011 when the 911 roared into its latest incarnation. With Porsche Active Suspension Management, optional rear axle steering and seeming unlimited power, the new Porsche 911 has raised the bar in the premium sports car market. Test drive one today at Porsche of Tucson.
