Executive Chairman

<strong>The</strong> ultimate <strong>Boxster</strong>.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> <strong>Boxster</strong> <strong>Spyder</strong>.<br />

A sports car that stands for authentic driving experience? No more, no less? In times when the primary<br />

focus of attention is directed to obligations, duties, common sense and comfort? That’s right. Our engineers<br />

held fast to the Porsche tradition. And the result is the <strong>new</strong> <strong>Boxster</strong> <strong>Spyder</strong>.<br />

More striking, more si<strong>new</strong>y and more sporty than ever.<br />

That is to say, it could only be a Porsche. <strong>The</strong> primary<br />

goal was naturally to increase performance. But with<br />

intelligence. Not simply piling a few horsepower on<br />

top, but instead making sure that every ounce pulls<br />

its weight.<br />

And at the same time, never losing sight of the fact<br />

that the drivers’ needs are paramount. <strong>The</strong>ir urge to<br />

live out their personal sporting bent, for instance. Or<br />

to demonstrate their severely purist attitude to the<br />

outside world. <strong>The</strong>ir demand: throw out the comfort<br />

that holds you back. <strong>The</strong> result: a manual hood instead<br />

of an electrically operated folding top. No aircon. No<br />

radio. No cupholder.<br />

Two luggage compartments represent the greatest<br />

concession to comfort and convenience. Other features:<br />

aluminium doors. Special 19“ wheels in lightweight<br />

design. 320 hp. Chassis lowered by 20 mm. Sleek,<br />

sporty bodywork. Mechanical rear-differential lock.<br />

And a design that not only captures this combination<br />

of power, sporty dynamism, purism and efficiency.<br />

But actually continues to strip it to its essence.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Design.<br />

Driving a <strong>Boxster</strong> <strong>Spyder</strong> is not a decision – it’s<br />

personal dedication. To limitless driving pleasure.<br />

To the heart of the matter for roadster enthusiasts:<br />

dynamics you can feel. And see.<br />

As always, our designers set themselves the loftiest<br />

standards. <strong>The</strong> goal: to communicate a clear,<br />

distinctive message at a single glance. To show<br />

the outside world what awaits the driver: genuine<br />

authenticity. High-precision power. <strong>The</strong> ultimate in<br />

unleashed emotion. How? By applying a principle<br />

that is woven through the entire history of Porsche:<br />

consistently lightweight design – or, to put it more<br />

accurately, intelligent performance.<br />

Let’s take the most obvious example: a sunroof<br />

replaces the electric folding roof. <strong>The</strong> rear end is<br />

dominated by two striking, sleekly curving elements<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> <strong>Boxster</strong> <strong>Spyder</strong><br />

reminiscent of two powerful muscles, which serve as<br />

a visual continuation of the black-painted rollover bars<br />

when the hood is down and improve aerodynamics<br />

when the open-top car is on the road.<br />

Venturing along <strong>new</strong> design paths. For us, this also<br />

means looking back into the past. Back to the times<br />

when driving a roadster was still thought of as a<br />

challenge – and one preferably to be tackled in a<br />

Porsche. Even the paintwork on the <strong>Boxster</strong> <strong>Spyder</strong><br />

is a nod to a long tradition: purist Carrara white<br />

echoes the racing history which is inextricably<br />

linked to the Porsche name, and the Porsche logo<br />

on the wing clearly references the 1960s. A further<br />

reminiscence is the fixed spoiler, a dramatic statement<br />

that underlines the power of the rear end.<br />

<strong>The</strong> drive system.<br />

More performance equals more driving dynamism?<br />

A formula that was always too simplistic for our<br />

engineers. <strong>The</strong> power-to-weight ratio has counted the<br />

most with Porsche throughout more than 60 years of<br />

sports car design. This is the relation between low<br />

weight – for outstanding agility – and high power – for<br />

exceptional performance, and it’s exactly the reason<br />

why, after saving 80 kilograms on the design, the<br />

engineering team added a 3.4 litre boxer engine with<br />

power boost that tops even the impressive stats for<br />

torque of 370 Nm at 4,750 1/min, this engine is an<br />

unstoppable force.<br />

<strong>The</strong> result is a set of outstanding performance<br />

statistics, extreme quietness, optimum propulsive<br />

power and incredible manoeuvrability. And, thanks<br />

to its targeted lightweight construction, a powerto-weight<br />

ratio of almost 4 kg/hp. Even the lightest<br />

speed is 267 km/h – with the top down. Accompanied<br />

by a feast of sound that’s like a rock and roll symphony.<br />

<strong>The</strong> chassis.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Boxster</strong> <strong>Spyder</strong> has an ultra-sporty chassis as<br />

standard, with short, stiff travel in the suspension,<br />

large anti-roll bars on front and back axles and four<br />

shock absorbers with firmly aligned traction and<br />

compression stages. <strong>The</strong> chassis was lowered by<br />

20 mm at the front and rear axles in comparison to<br />

the <strong>Boxster</strong> S. So how does all this affect the driver? It<br />

delivers an even more direct experience of the ultimate<br />

in driving dynamics. All in all, the <strong>Boxster</strong> <strong>Spyder</strong> is a<br />

sports car that hits the heart. <strong>The</strong> quintessence of<br />

sportscar history as it’s lived and breathed. Because<br />

it’s built by people who are part of this history. For<br />

people who see themselves reflected in it.<br />

<strong>The</strong> 911 Sport Classic from Porsche Exclusive.<br />

<strong>The</strong> iconic 911 sports car has undergone<br />

continuous advancement since its launch in 1963.<br />

From the outset, we incorporated customisation<br />

into our activities. Vehicle customisation to the<br />

highest standards, supplied straight from the<br />

factory. For Porsche cars – built to the state of<br />

the art. To your requirements. <strong>The</strong> key principle:<br />

customisation by hand.<br />

For vehicles the like of which had never been seen<br />

before – and never will again. Today we’d like to<br />

present an automobile that nods to the past while<br />

looking to the future. Lavishly produced. Given the<br />

perfect finish in our “Exclusive Manufaktur”. In a<br />

limited edition of 250. And thus a highly personal<br />

item. <strong>The</strong> 911 Sport Classic from Porsche Exclusive.<br />

<strong>The</strong> technology.<br />

“Our priority is to build exceptional cars, not<br />

exceptional numbers of cars.” Ferry Porsche’s<br />

statement expresses the core of our aims. We<br />

make cars. Exclusive cars.<br />

<strong>The</strong> heart of the lightweight rear-wheel-drive model<br />

is the 6-cylinder boxer engine that’s so characteristic<br />

of the 911. With direct fuel injection (DFI) to lower<br />

emissions and maximise efficiency. With tuned exhaust<br />

system. Cubic capacity: 3.8 litres. Power: increased<br />

to 300 kW (408 hp). Top speed: 302 km/h. Driving<br />

pleasure: also taken to the limit. Also thanks to the<br />

sports chassis with Porsche Active Suspension<br />

Management (PASM) including lowering by 20 mm<br />

and rear axle differential lock. Doors are of aluminium<br />

to further reduce weight. And safety is also taken<br />

care of with Porsche Stability Management (PSM)<br />

and Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB).<br />

<strong>The</strong> design.<br />

911 Sport Classic<br />

<strong>The</strong> sporty style of the exterior colour scheme<br />

is continued in the interior, where the 911 Sport<br />

Classic offers a host of custom extras with <strong>new</strong><br />

colours and materials.<br />

<strong>The</strong> leather interior is in natural leather in Espresso.<br />

Decorative seams at key points are in striking Light<br />

Grey to tone with the exterior bodywork. A <strong>new</strong><br />

rugged supreme-quality material was used for the<br />

floor carpeting, its shade of Espresso perfectly<br />

matching the interior. <strong>The</strong> same material is also<br />

used for door, rear side and rear wall panelling and<br />

for the rear seat backs. But solid metal and painted<br />

aluminium-effect elements also add a sparkling finish<br />

to the interior of the 911 Sport Classic. Did you really<br />

expect anything else? Wherever you look, you find<br />

creativity and painstaking detail. <strong>The</strong> custom extra<br />

that features most often is craftsmanship. After all,<br />

our greatest strength doesn’t lie in producing<br />

vehicles that deliver power and only power. “<strong>The</strong><br />

strength of Porsche is that we avoid uniformity”,<br />

said Ferry Porsche. <strong>The</strong>re’s only one wish still to be<br />

fulfilled: to take the wheel of a 911 Sport Classic. In<br />

person, naturally.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3 RS<br />

No illusions. No compromises.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3 RS features consistent<br />

lightweight design.<br />

A <strong>new</strong> RS? But hadn’t the pinnacle already been<br />

reached in the most recent development phase?<br />

Ah, but we simply couldn’t let it lie. Driven by<br />

ambition, we set ourselves a lap time that seemed<br />

to be unattainable even for a 911 GT3 RS. Or so<br />

we thought.<br />

<strong>The</strong> starting-point: the 911 GT3. <strong>The</strong> very best<br />

preconditions. Our engineers had a clear-cut task.<br />

More power. Higher performance. Lower weight.<br />

To slash lap times even further.<br />

But performance and precision weren’t the<br />

only reigning ideas for the <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3<br />

RS: lightweight construction was also<br />

paramount. Let’s start by looking at the<br />

result: a specific power-to-weight ratio<br />

of a mere 3.0 kg/hp. Achieved by using<br />

materials that are commonplace in motor<br />

sports, such as titanium, aluminium and<br />

carbon. In addition, the <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3 RS has<br />

lightweight door panels with loop-type openers<br />

and plastic rear window.<br />

<strong>The</strong> engine of the 911 GT3 models also jettisoned<br />

unnecessary pounds. <strong>The</strong> lightweight sports exhaust<br />

system comprises 2 presilencers, 2 catalytic<br />

converters and a rear silencer ending in a central<br />

twin-flow tailpipe. <strong>The</strong> rear silencer and the twin<br />

tailpipes are of lightweight titanium. <strong>The</strong> high-volume<br />

exhaust system reduces exhaust backpressure,<br />

thus enhancing performance. In addition, ultra-light<br />

titanium connecting-rods and weight-optimized<br />

pistons lower oscillating mass and boost dynamic<br />

speed development. Ultra-light lifters activate the<br />

inlet and outlet valves. For circuit driving, Porsche<br />

now offers an optional lithium-ion battery, which<br />

saves over 10 kg in weight in comparison with<br />

the conventional standard battery.<br />

<strong>The</strong> light manual<br />

transmission delivers high transmission efficiency<br />

and boosts performance to outstanding levels. As a<br />

further advancement to save weight, the <strong>new</strong> 911<br />

GT3 RS features a single-mass flywheel, unlike the<br />

dual-mass flywheel of the 911 GT3 – a design that<br />

is lighter in weight to maximise engine dynamism.<br />

<strong>The</strong> engine thus powers high speeds even more<br />

effortlessly – albeit with a somewhat higher noise level.<br />

Although the chassis of the <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3 RS is<br />

tailored to the advanced requirements of motor<br />

sports, the consistent application of lightweight<br />

construction and materials keeps the total weight<br />

and the weight of the unsprung mass low. Delivering<br />

exceptional manoeuvrability, high driving safety and<br />

stable handling, especially when cornering.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3 RS is optionally available with<br />

a braking technology that has already proven its<br />

mettle in the toughest racetrack challenges: Porsche<br />

Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB). <strong>The</strong> key to this<br />

ceramic braking system is the ultra-low weight of the<br />

brake discs, around 50% lighter than standard grey<br />

cast-iron discs. In addition, the front and rear axle<br />

brake cups in the 911 GT3 models are of aluminium,<br />

allowing additional weight savings. In this way, a<br />

further 4.8 kg or so per vehicle can be saved in<br />

comparison to models with brake cups of stainless<br />

steel. All these factors not only impact positively on<br />

performance and fuel consumption, but also – the<br />

primary concern – reduce the unsprung and rotatory<br />

masses of the vehicle.<br />

Naturally, this consistent use of lightweight<br />

construction and materials is continued in the interior.<br />

Optional extras include lightweight CFK carbon-fibre<br />

bucket seats, offering exceptional lateral support at<br />

minimum weight. <strong>The</strong>y weigh in at approximately 24 kg<br />

lighter than sports seats and around 10 kg<br />

lighter than sports bucket seats.<br />

Even the lighting concept was revised<br />

to shave a few grams. For uncompromising<br />

racetrack performance,<br />

lightweight halogen headlights<br />

are available at no extra charge,<br />

excluding headlight cleaning system<br />

and headlight levelling. After all,<br />

fielding the lowest possible weight<br />

is a given if the lowest lap times<br />

are the aim.<br />

To sum up: more performance.<br />

More driving dynamics. Less<br />

weight. Not a simple task. And all<br />

that for those critical few tenths of<br />

a second. Because they mean the<br />

world to you – and us.<br />

Our engineers and designers are known to be<br />

obsessive about details. And how about you?<br />

Its roots extend back into the 1950s. Its role models<br />

are the 1953 Porsche 550 <strong>Spyder</strong> or the Porsche<br />

718 from the early 60s. In 1993, it was studied<br />

in depth and caused quite a stir. And since 1996<br />

it’s been king of the road – and king of hearts for<br />

Porsche fans everywhere. What is it? <strong>The</strong> <strong>Boxster</strong>, the<br />

ultimate sports car of roadsters. With mid-engine for<br />

manoeuvrability to the max, and with a charisma that<br />

stands for one thing: the ultimate driving pleasure.<br />

New front apron from SportDesign Package<br />

Typical Porsche, in fact. Like the products from<br />

Porsche Tequipment. Mere accessories at first glance,<br />

maybe. But actually part of a harmonious overall<br />

concept. And part of the dream of a <strong>Boxster</strong> with<br />

even greater character and even greater sportiness.<br />

For this reason, all model-specific products from<br />

Porsche Tequipment are designed, developed,<br />

tested and coordinated against the background of the<br />

vehicle as a whole. By the very Porsche engineers<br />

and designers who create the cars themselves.<br />

Porsche Type 908 Short-tail Coupé (1968)<br />

1969: Porsche is finally world champion.<br />

With the Porsche 908.<br />

<strong>The</strong> end of 1969’s memorable sports car season<br />

was finally marked by the World Championship. <strong>The</strong><br />

Porsche 908 and its outstanding driver Jo Siffert<br />

played a major role in this first triumph in the<br />

stable World Championship – and many more<br />

triumphs would follow in the future.<br />

1969 was a great year for stable trophies. <strong>The</strong><br />

24-Hour Races at Daytona and Le Mans, the<br />

Sebring 12-Hour Race, the Targa Florio and<br />

the 1,000-Kilometer Races at Monza, Spa and<br />

Germany’s Nürburgring. Classics that attracted<br />

hundreds of thousands of fans and spectators. With<br />

a unique starting field featuring the Porsche 908 and<br />

917, Ford GT 40 and Ford Mirage, Ferrari 312P –<br />

the Champions League of sports car racing. Add to<br />

this drivers including Jo Siffert, Jacky Ickx and Mario<br />

Andretti. Although Porsche had amassed the highest<br />

scores in the world championships of 1967 and<br />

1968, the victories in those years went to Ferrari<br />

and Ford because only the best five races were<br />

evaluated. “We were under enormous pressure to<br />

become world champions”, reminisces long-distance<br />

racing legend Peter Falk, already a member of the<br />

Porsche works team at the time.<br />

And the pressure piled on. After the races at<br />

Daytona and Sebring, Porsche’s score was almost<br />

nil. Despite the <strong>new</strong> Porsche 908. Drivers were<br />

crazy about Hans Mezger’s three-litre, eight-cylinder<br />

engine design, but the Porsche team’s last vehicle<br />

limped out of the race at Daytona after 18 hours; all<br />

four long-tail 908s had suffered a broken cam chain<br />

gear, their light metal alloy insufficiently rugged for<br />

the demands of the racetrack. After Daytona a steel<br />

gear was used instead to solve the problem.<br />

Sebring in 1969 was the most powerful range in the<br />

history of World Championship racing: 70 vehicles<br />

crammed the starting grid, with six teams sharing<br />

the lead 14 times over. Porsche was not ahead at<br />

the end – the 908’s chassis frames cracked – but<br />

the mechanics improvised by sawing flat iron bars<br />

from the fuel tanks into “splints” for the tubular<br />

frames. This stroke of initiative enabled the team of<br />

Stommelen/Buzzetta to come third.<br />

After a frame redesign, it was off to Brands Hatch,<br />

but only Jo Siffert’s 908 was able to keep pace with<br />

the Ferrari. Could it be the tyres? After a trial lap<br />

the Firestone tyres proved to be 1.5 seconds faster<br />

than the Dunlops previously used, Siffert roared away<br />

from the starting line and Porsche celebrated<br />

a precious triple victory.<br />

Siffert was again victorious in Monza, and the<br />

Zuffenhausen team clearly dominated at the Targa<br />

Florio in Sicily, capturing a quadruple win. In Spa<br />

Siffert also drove the 908 to victory against the<br />

Ferraris. At last the 908 was claiming its triumphal<br />

success. <strong>The</strong> 908 was designed as a <strong>Spyder</strong> version<br />

(908/2) and as a long-tail for ultra-fast routes. <strong>The</strong><br />

third version, known among the assembly-line staff as<br />

the “flounder” after the shape of its aerodynamically<br />

optimised bodywork, notched up speeds 20 km/h<br />

faster than the old <strong>Spyder</strong>. And delivered a triple<br />

win for Porsche at the 1,000-Kilometer Race at<br />

Nürburgring, described by premier German auto<br />

magazine auto motor und sport as “Things are<br />

starting to get lonely around Porsche.”<br />

Although there were three races to go, Porsche had<br />

already won the stable championship. Only one blot<br />

marred the otherwise clean slate: at the prestigious<br />

24 Hour Race at Le Mans, Porsche was unplaced. A<br />

failure which Porsche was not able to wipe out until<br />

one year later – but that’s another story.<br />

Changi Airport Race<br />

<strong>The</strong> 911 GT3 debuts in Asia –<br />

with the race of a lifetime.<br />

A very special and landmark event in Singapore marked the regional debut of the latest generation 911 GT3<br />

in the Asia Pacific region. More than 500 invited guests attended the launch at the gatehold rooms of<br />

Singapore Changi Airport’s Terminal 3. <strong>The</strong> unveiling of the <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3 also set the stage for the tantalizing<br />

and highly anticipated race between a 911 GT3 Cup Car and a Jett8 Airlines Boeing 747 jetliner. This was to<br />

be the first car versus jetliner race ever in Asia and the driver of the 911 GT3 Cup car in the race, Singaporean<br />

Porsche Carrera Cup Asia racer Yuey Tan summed it up as the race of a lifetime.<br />

Sporty and dynamic: <strong>The</strong> unveiling of the <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3<br />

Before the race flagged off, Yuey Tan along with Mr.<br />

Karsono Kwee, Executive Chairman of Porsche<br />

Centre Singapore, Mr. Christer Ekberg, Managing<br />

Director of Porsche Asia Pacific, Mr. Tan Lye<br />

Teck, Executive Vice President, Corporate of Changi<br />

Airport Group, jointly unveiled the <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3 – a<br />

sporting and dynamic vehicle that audience in the<br />

Asia-Pacific region is seeing for the very first time.<br />

After the unveiling, the guests were ushered onto the<br />

tarmac where grandstands were erected for them to<br />

witness the historical race first hand.<br />

Before the countdown to the race, guests were<br />

surprised by the unexpected discovery of Porsche<br />

Design sunglasses underneath their grandstand<br />

seats. <strong>The</strong> cheerleading performance pumped up<br />

the excitement even more in welcoming the Porsche<br />

driver, Yuey Tan, 27 and Captain Peter Leo, 64.<br />

As the Jett8 Airlines B747-200F sat primed to go on<br />

Runway 1 and the Porsche revved up 200 metres<br />

away on a parallel taxiway, the race was ready to<br />

start. With a race distance of 1.7km, it was always<br />

going to be close. <strong>The</strong> aircraft’s top speed in the<br />

air is 955km/h, while a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup can<br />

reach up to 280km/h. Finally they were off – the<br />

jetliner seemed to start the stronger, but suddenly<br />

the Porsche, dwarfed in size by the massive B747,<br />

came powering from behind to reach the chequered<br />

flag seemingly nose to nose with the plane. <strong>The</strong><br />

race itself was a blinder, with Yuey and the Cup car<br />

crossing the finish line just 0.4 seconds ahead of<br />

the towering jumbo jet for a close call photo finish,<br />

crowning himself as the speed king of the Changi<br />

Airport tarmac in the process.<br />

A jubilant Yuey received the winner’s trophy from<br />

Guest-of-Honour, Mrs. Lim Hwee Hua, Minister, Prime<br />

Minister’s Office and Second Minister for Finance and<br />

Transport. Commenting on his win, Yuey said, “This<br />

marks my maiden win in the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup<br />

car, and what a win this is. This is definitely one of the<br />

highlights of my motoring career so far – as a boy,<br />

I’ve always been fascinated by speed and to be able to<br />

triumph over the Boeing jetliner is a terrific experience<br />

for me. I hope to build on this success in the weeks to<br />

come during the Singapore Grand Prix week.”<br />

Added Mr. Karsono Kwee, “What an exciting race<br />

and a fantastic win for the Porsche 911 GT3 Carrera<br />

Cup Car. This race is a stellar accomplishment for<br />

Porsche’s world-class race cars. One of the things<br />

Porsche does best is adapting its race technology<br />

for its road cars, and the <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3 epitomises<br />

this. <strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3 road car that will appear on<br />

Singapore roads soon, is definitely one built for the<br />

race track with its exhilarating driving dynamics and<br />

race car-like performance. It also keeps the owner’s<br />

everyday driving needs firmly in mind by designing a<br />

car that suits the everyday road conditions as well.” n<br />

A truly exhilarating race: a mere 0.4 seconds separated the Cup car and the jetliner at the finish line<br />

Triumphant Return to Singapore for<br />

Porsche Carrera Cup Asia.<br />

<strong>The</strong> moment the chequered flag fell on its thrilling<br />

Marina Bay street circuit debut, planning began in<br />

earnest for the second running of the Porsche SC<br />

Global Carrera Cup Asia – Singapore.<br />

Arguably the biggest party Singapore had ever seen,<br />

the 2008 FORMULA 1 SingTel Singapore Grand<br />

Prix was hailed across the globe as an unqualified<br />

success, but Porsche Asia Pacific was determined to<br />

go one better in <strong>2009</strong>.<br />

With race title sponsor, leading Singapore luxury<br />

property developer SC Global Developments on<br />

board for a second year, it was time to get the party<br />

started, and the promotional campaign kicked off<br />

with an interactive quiz where as many as 20,000<br />

racing fans had the chance to win spectacular prizes,<br />

including the use of a Porsche for a whole weekend.<br />

Giving both visitors and residents alike the chance<br />

to get close to the ‘real deal’, a road show at Bugis<br />

Junction featured a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup racing<br />

car and SC Global Racing driver Danny Watts,<br />

while the stunning Panamera was on show at the<br />

Intercontinental Hotel.<br />

Lucky quiz winners receive their fabulous prizes at the Bugis Junction<br />

road show<br />

However, things really got going during Grand Prix<br />

week, with a welcome party at the Society Bar for<br />

150 drivers, teams, partners, organisers and media,<br />

followed by the pre-race Sunday Brunch at the<br />

Intercontinental Hotel, where series drivers Danny<br />

Chu, Yuey Tan and Danny Watts strutted their stuff on<br />

the runway in an adidas Porsche Design fashion show.<br />

Having enjoyed a sumptuous buffet and entertainment<br />

courtesy of the Havana Brown band, it was time to<br />

get down to business on the Marina Bay circuit.<br />

<strong>The</strong> entry for the Porsche SC Global Carrera Cup<br />

Asia – Singapore <strong>2009</strong>, Round 9 of the series, was<br />

nothing short of stellar, with super-quick Briton Danny<br />

Watts and New Zealand veteran Craig Baird joining<br />

the bumper 18-car field as guest drivers.<br />

However, while Danny and Craig may have been<br />

looking to add a Singapore win to their CVs, the regular<br />

series drivers were intent on grabbing as many of<br />

those all-important championship points as possible.<br />

Arriving in Singapore, Briton Tim Sugden led the<br />

Class A drivers, having reached the podium in every<br />

View from the top – the Marina Bay street circuit<br />

Michael Mauer, Head of Design at Porsche AG was on hand to provide the<br />

race of the season thus far. Tim also had a score to<br />

settle after taking pole position in Singapore in 2008,<br />

and actually crossing the line first, only to have his<br />

victory snatched from him when he was judged to<br />

have jumped the start.<br />

At the end of a dramatic qualifying session though,<br />

it was Germany’s Christian Menzel of Team<br />

StarChase, second on the championship leaderboard,<br />

who grabbed pole position head of Tim, Team<br />

Jebsen’s Darryl O’Young and the two guest drivers.<br />

Singapore’s Melvin Choo took pole position in Class<br />

B, flying the flag for his home town and the Corum<br />

ThunderAsia Racing team.<br />

<strong>The</strong> excitement reached fever pitch as race day<br />

dawned, and the field took their places on the grid<br />

for the race which was to be broadcast live on<br />

Singapore‘s local station Channel 5 for the first time.<br />

In a thrilling start, Christian and Tim were two<br />

abreast, and the crowds were on their feet. However<br />

the Briton made an uncharacteristic error which was<br />

to cost him dearly, dropping him back down the field<br />

and allowing Christian to run away to victory – taking<br />

the championship lead in the process.<br />

Danny Watts had his work cut out, but charged through to a podium finish<br />

<strong>The</strong> delighted trio celebrate victory. From L-R: 1st runner-up Craig Baird,<br />

winner Christian Menzel and 2nd runner-up Danny Watts<br />

Second across the line was Craig Baird, who had a<br />

spectacular duel with Danny in the closing stages,<br />

as the pair got by Darryl in the closing laps after the<br />

Hong Kong racer wrestled with a technical problem<br />

while running second.<br />

Giving the Singapore crowds even more to cheer<br />

about, Melvin Choo took a well-deserved victory in<br />

Class B, ahead of Hong Kong’s Philip Ma and another<br />

Singaporean driver, Yuey Tan.<br />

Shanghai International Circuit for Rounds 10 & 11. n<br />

Menzel proving to be the one to beat in the<br />

Porsche Carrera Cup Asia <strong>2009</strong><br />

Championship leader Christian Menzel completed a<br />

perfect weekend with two decisive victories in a row,<br />

during Rounds 10 & 11 held at the Shanghai<br />

International Circuit over the November 7 - 8<br />

weekend. However, with only one race left to the<br />

end of the season, it remains a closely contested<br />

battle to see who will ultimately emerge as the <strong>2009</strong><br />

series’ champion.<br />

Early morning rain left parts of the circuit slightly wet,<br />

affecting the drivers on the inside off the start in<br />

Round 10. As a result, Briton Tim Sugden, starting<br />

from third, was able to overtake Team Jebsen’s<br />

Darryl O’Young. Menzel got away cleanly from the<br />

start, and after Sugden’s overtaking manoeuvre the<br />

top three remained ahead of the field until the chequered<br />

flag. Further down the field a battle between Asia<br />

Racing Team’s Rodolfo Avila and Dutch driver Danny Chu<br />

ensued, before Avila ultimately pulled away in front.<br />

Determined to try and close the gap in the<br />

championship points, Sugden, starting from second,<br />

got off to a terrific start in Round 11, overtaking poleman<br />

Menzel on the first corner. <strong>The</strong> two engaged<br />

in a tight battle, but an error by Sugden on Lap 4<br />

cost him dearly, allowing Menzel to re-take the lead<br />

and ultimately finish the race with a comfortable six<br />

second margin.<br />

<strong>The</strong> winners celebrate after a gruelling race in Round 11. From L-R:<br />

1st runner-up Tim Sugden, winner Christian Menzel and 2nd runner up<br />

Darryl O’Young.<br />

O’Young initially battled hard with Avila, with the Team<br />

Jebsen ace ultimately edging ahead in the latter half<br />

of the race. With his third place finish, O’Young is<br />

the only other driver still in contention for the overall<br />

championship, alongside Menzel and Sugden.<br />

In Class B, Corum ThunderAsia Racing’s Melvin Choo<br />

completed an equally perfect weekend, setting the<br />

pace and clinching both coveted top positions. Hong<br />

Kong driver Philip Ma came in second in both rounds,<br />

with Team PCS Racing driver Yuey Tan and OMAK<br />

Team’s Mak Hing Tak rounding out the podium in<br />

third in Rounds 10 & 11 respectively.<br />

<strong>The</strong> PCCA season culminates in a thrilling end with<br />

Rounds 12 & 13 held at the Sepang International<br />

Circuit, Malaysia over the December 4 - 6 weekend. n<br />

Panamera Launch in Indonesia<br />

Porsche Centre Jakarta unveils<br />

the <strong>new</strong> Panamera.<br />

In celebration of the launch of Porsche’s highly<br />

anticipated 4th model line, the <strong>new</strong> Panamera was<br />

unveiled on the evening of 23 October <strong>2009</strong>, at the<br />

Ritz Carlton Pacific Place, Jakarta. <strong>The</strong> landmark<br />

event was officiated by Mr. Herbert Kwee, CEO of PT.<br />

Eurokars Artha Utama, the official Porsche importer<br />

in Indonesia.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Porsche-filled car park probably would have given<br />

away that something big was going on inside the<br />

ballroom of the Ritz Carlton. Indeed, it was a big day<br />

to “witness the launch of an extraordinary creation<br />

and milestone, a showcase of the latest engineering<br />

marvel by Porsche; the start of a <strong>new</strong> automotive<br />

dimension: the 4th dimension”, said host of the<br />

evening, popular local actress and model, Ms. Isabell<br />

Yahya as she welcomed the guests to the ballroom.<br />

<strong>The</strong> spectacular evening began with a video<br />

introduction of the Panamera, following which guests<br />

Up close and personal: Guests get ready to explore the Panamera for themselves<br />

A warm welcome by Porsche Centre Jakarta<br />

mingled over canapes and cocktails as local jazz<br />

band, IZI, filled the room with soothing jazz tunes.<br />

Guests were then greeted by the opening speech<br />

delivered by Mr. Herbert Kwee. Directly after this, a<br />

further introduction to the <strong>new</strong> Porsche Panamera<br />

was given by Mr. Christer Ekberg, Managing Director<br />

of Porsche Asia Pacific. A Panamera video feature<br />

was shown afterwards, heightening the guests’<br />

enthusiasm to have a personal, up-close view and<br />

feel of the actual car itself.<br />

And finally the most anticipated moment of the night<br />

had arrived - as the lights dimmed and a spectacular<br />

show of laser lights shone all over the ballroom, guests<br />

held their breath in anticipation. As the tempo of the<br />

music increased, a silver Panamera 4S was dramatically<br />

revealed as the surrounding white curtains fell away.<br />

Split seconds later, a Panamera S and Panamera<br />

Turbo were driven in, each seated with 4 models.<br />

<strong>The</strong> launch continued with the Porsche Design Driver’s<br />

Selection (PDDS) fashion show, with the models<br />

showcasing apparel and accessories from both the<br />

latest Panamera and Martini Racing PDDS collections.<br />

This included the smart, stylish trolley bags that can<br />

be customised to match the exterior colour of the<br />

<strong>new</strong> Porsche Panamera. To further showcase the<br />

storage capacity of the Gran Turismo, the models<br />

demonstrated by fitting in four trolley bags and a golf<br />

bag with ease into the luggage compartment – a feat<br />

not commonly seen in most luxury sedans.<br />

After an exhilarating visual feast, it was time for<br />

guests to enjoy the sumptuous dinner, which<br />

completed this great event with a wide spread of<br />

popular local and international cuisine.<br />

Mr. Christer Ekberg, Managing Director, Porsche Asia Pacific in front of<br />

the Panamera 4S<br />

Having experienced firsthand Porsche’s <strong>new</strong>, stunning<br />

and exquisite luxury sports sedan, all guests were<br />

given a miniature metal car model of the <strong>new</strong><br />

Panamera, as well as a coffee book as a souvenir for<br />

attending the launch. As guests left the event filled<br />

with positive impressions and memories of their first<br />

encounter with Porsche’s 4th model line, we can<br />

safely say that for many, it certainly won’t be the last.<br />
