If you're looking for guidance during your car-buying journey, you've come to the right place! Here are just a few of our current favorite models and what they can do for you.
2017 Porsche Boxster
The standard models are equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer engine with direct fuel injection (DFI), VarioCam Plus and integrated dry-sump lubrication. The unit develops 300 hp at 6,500 rpm. Maximum torque is 280 lb.-ft. Thanks to turbocharged induction, it is available as low as 1,950 rpm and prevails until 4,500 rpm. With Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), the new 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in only 4.7 seconds, reaching a top track speed of 170 mph.
The S models draw their power from a capacity of 2.5 liters. The result is 350 hp at 6,500 rpm. The maximum torque of 309 lb.-ft. is available across an impressively wide range from 1,900 to 4,500 rpm. This engine – like the engine in the 911 Turbo – also comes equipped with variable turbine geometry (VTG). VTG provides an even more consistent delivery of power and, in turn, significantly greater driving pleasure. Propulsive potential? Top track speed is 177 mph. The S models with PDK and Launch Control complete the 0 to 60 mph sprint in just 4.0 seconds.
2017 Porsche 911
The new 911 answers questions about the future of the sports car with a quantum leap in performance. By reducing fuel consumption, but not by suppressing emotions. By following a principle that has already changed everything once before: in 1974, with the first 911 Turbo.
Developed completely from scratch, the six-cylinder twin-turbo engines of the 911 Carrera and Targa 4 models with a displacement of 3.0 litres embrace this principle and perfect it in a forwardlooking way. To be more precise: tremendous acceleration force even in the low rpm range is supplemented by the engine map of a 911 Carrera with the high rev limits typical of a sports car. In other words, high compression and a high engine speed combined with good modulation of power output and surprisingly low fuel consumption, thanks to the reduced overall displacement.
Expressed in figures, this means an extra 20 hp of power, an extra 43 lb.-ft. of torque and engine speeds of up to 7,500 rpm. And a reduced fuel consumption.
The engine of the 911 Carrera and 911 Targa 4 models develops 370 hp. The maximum torque of 325 lb.-ft. is available from as low as 1,700 rpm. With Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), the 911 Carrera can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 293 km/h.
2017 Porsche Panamera
The efficient 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V6 engine with four overhead camshafts benefits from a lightweight construction. A balance shaft reduces vibrations and ensures excellent smooth running. Direct Fuel Injection (DFI), VarioCam Plus and integrated dry-sump lubrication are fitted as standard. A coasting function and Auto Start Stop function are also provided.
The engine generates a power output of 310 hp at 6200 rpm and a maximum torque of 295 lb.-ft. at 3750 rpm. The result is a top track speed of 160 mph and acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in 6.0 seconds in the new Panamera and a 159 mph top track speed and 5.8 seconds from 0 to 60 mph in the new Panamera 4.
