The two Porsche models, which are publicly shown for the first time, come with the remarkable specialties of Porsche: active performance and superb economy.

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.

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 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.
