Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2009

The two Porsche models, which are publicly shown for the first time, come with the remarkable specialties of Porsche: active performance and superb economy. The latest 911 GT3 once more comes with more potency, speed and dynamism than the previous model especially in the area of driving dynamics and performance.

The normally aspirated 6-cylinder powerplant comes with maximum power yield of 435bhp (320kW) about 20bhp over the preceding model. Acceleration rate is pegged at 4.1 seconds from 0-100km/h and reaches a ceiling speed of 312km/h (193mph). The GT3's external appearance has been improved by high-tech aero upgrades, while downforce have substantially been increased to more than twice that of the preceding version.

The Porsche GT3 also comes with PSM Porsche Stability Management switching on and off in particular phases. The second model is the Cayenne Diesel which will be opened at the Geneva event.

The merging of Porsche's dynamic and adaptive SUV with a highly economical and high-torque power engine provides remarkable benefits when traveling on long distances or while towing a trailer. Moreover, the Cayenne comes with remarkable driving dynamics, safety and off-road characteristics for which it is well known. On the exterior, the Cayenne looks about the same with the V6 powerplant and the Caynenne brand name on the tailgate.

The V6 comes with a 3.0-liter displacement, is extra-smooth and refined enough to develop 240bhp (176kW) and a maximum speed of 214km/h (133mph). Maximum torque achieve is 550Nm (405lb-ft) at 2,000rpm only.

The acceleration rate of the Cayenne is 0-100km/h in 8.3 seconds with its Tiptronic S transmission as standard. The powerplant boasts of a fuel consumption rate of 9.3-liters diesel/100km or 30.4mpg imp, giving the Cayenne a range of 1,000km (620mi) with a 100-liter fuel tank.

The diesel comes with a 6-speed Tiptronic S auto transmission. The PSM Porsche Stability Management is featured as standard on the Cayenne has been intentionally geared toward the diesel powerplant, at the same time intelligent PTM Porsche Traction Management offers a perfect interdependence of very good on-road and off-road driving traits, appropriately channeling power to both wheels at the front and back.
