<strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> Boxster and <strong>Cayman</strong> models<br />

When a real roadster meets<br />

a distinctive personality.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> Boxster and <strong>Cayman</strong> models.<br />

Discover <strong>your</strong> Inner Fire.<br />

Though 60 years of automotive evolution has seen<br />

many changes, the cornerstones of the Boxster<br />

remain unchanged. Sports performance, lightweight<br />

construction, agility and pure driving pleasure. All<br />

neatly packaged in a two-seat, mid-engine sports<br />

car destined to be a modern classic.<br />

Above all, the <strong>new</strong> Boxster models are governed<br />

by extreme performance. Brand <strong>new</strong> engine<br />

developments translate to higher capacity and<br />

extremely smooth running. <strong>The</strong> Boxster’s six-cylinder<br />

boxer engine, fitted with VarioCam Plus, now has a<br />

2.9-litre capacity, which develops 188 kW (255 hp)<br />

and takes the 0 – 100 km/h sprint in only 5.9<br />

seconds before the acceleration ends at a top<br />

speed of 263 km/h. <strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> Boxster S 3.4-litre<br />

engine features direct fuel injection (DFI) and even<br />

more power, developing an impressive 228 kW<br />

(310 hp) and reaching 274 km/h top speed while the<br />

acceleration to 100 km/h takes just 5.3 seconds.<br />

Faster acceleration and lower fuel consumption<br />

are also a reality with the optional Porsche<br />

Doppelkupplung (PDK), available for both models.<br />

Attention to detail means that nothing is overlooked.<br />

<strong>The</strong> suspension of the <strong>new</strong> Boxster models have<br />

been tuned in tandem with the engine’s increased<br />

power. <strong>The</strong> enhanced Porsche Stability Management<br />

(PSM) now includes two additional features.<br />

Precharging of the braking system, and Brake<br />

Assist both contribute towards shortening stopping<br />

distances and increasing active safety. <strong>The</strong> mid-<br />

engine design, in combination with the complex<br />

chassis technology, result in an impressively smooth<br />

ride even during cornering, braking and acceleration.<br />

Pushing the boundaries of technical limitations, with<br />

a seamless blend of function and design. <strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong><br />

Boxster models remain true roadsters.<br />

<strong>Go</strong> <strong>your</strong> <strong>own</strong> <strong>way</strong>.<br />

An uncompromising declaration of individuality. Two<br />

sports coupes that go beyond all conventions. Two<br />

cars that draw their drivers under their spell, forever.<br />

Two brand <strong>new</strong> engine developments continue to<br />

herald the arrival of the <strong>new</strong> <strong>Cayman</strong> and <strong>Cayman</strong> S.<br />

Outstanding for their lightweight construction,<br />

power output and efficiency, their drive for power is<br />

extraordinary. And the design? With a striking <strong>new</strong><br />

headlight concept, the <strong>new</strong> <strong>Cayman</strong> models are a<br />

declaration of individuality.<br />

<strong>The</strong> unmistakable sound of the <strong>Cayman</strong> belies its<br />

powerful core: the familiar 6-cylinder, mid-engine<br />

concept. <strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> 2.9-litre flat-six engine of the<br />

<strong>Cayman</strong> delivers 195 kW (265 hp), an acceleration<br />

from 0 – 100 km/h within 5.8 seconds and a top<br />

speed of 265 km/h. <strong>The</strong> <strong>Cayman</strong> S goes one step<br />

further, now for the first time with direct fuel injection<br />

(DFI), a 3.4-litre engine and a power output of<br />

235 kW (320 hp), leading to a top speed of 277 km/h<br />

and an acceleration to 100 km/h within 5.2 seconds.<br />

<strong>The</strong> optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) delivers<br />

even faster rates of acceleration by significantly<br />

reducing the time taken between gear selection and<br />

gear engagements and is available as an option on<br />

either model.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>Cayman</strong> models also incorporate the Porsche<br />

Stability Management (PSM) as a standard feature,<br />

to give you peace of mind while driving as the<br />

automated control system stabilises the vehicle<br />

at the limits of dynamic driving performance.<br />

Completely revised suspension tuning ensures <strong>your</strong><br />

comfort on both short and longer journeys. Smooth<br />

acceleration is readily matched by impressive braking<br />

power, as both <strong>new</strong> <strong>Cayman</strong> models feature internally<br />

vented brake discs to comfortably tame the power of<br />

the engine.<br />

Uncompromisingly sporty – the <strong>new</strong> <strong>Cayman</strong> and<br />

<strong>Cayman</strong> S. Two different characters. One personality.<br />

<strong>The</strong>ir drive for power is impressive, their spirited<br />

nature fascinating. <strong>The</strong> only question left to consider:<br />

which one suits you best? n


Porsche Exclusive & Tequipment<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> <strong>Cayman</strong> and the <strong>new</strong> Boxster – now<br />

with even more personality. New highlights<br />

of the Porsche Exclusive & Tequipment<br />

collection.<br />

Each Porsche is a full-blooded sports car. Its sporty design is coordinated harmoniously with the entire<br />

vehicle. Every detail tells a story of equal proportion. A fascinating one. A compelling one. But not<br />

necessarily the same one. It is the small but significant difference. Something that highlights individuality<br />

without concealing its origins. Something that accentuates personality without hiding its roots. We’ve<br />

given a name to this “something” – Exclusive & Tequipment. So that <strong>your</strong> Porsche is <strong>your</strong>s for ever.<br />

Wheels, mirror attachment point finisher, air intake grills in the rear side section<br />

On the outside it’s sporty throughand-through.<br />

To increase the distinctive sporty looks of the Boxster<br />

and <strong>Cayman</strong> models, you could start with the exterior –<br />

by using additional painted elements, for instance. New<br />

options for this include air intake grilles in the exterior<br />

colour on the front end of <strong>Cayman</strong> models, as well<br />

as painted air intakes on the rear side section of the<br />

Boxster and <strong>Cayman</strong> models. <strong>The</strong> latter are available<br />

in the exterior colour for Boxster models and in a<br />

contrasting exterior colour for <strong>Cayman</strong> models. New<br />

for <strong>Cayman</strong> models is the option of having the grille<br />

in the rear apron 1) sprayed in GT Silver Metallic. This<br />

feature applies to both sides of the rear apron and<br />

adds to the sporty design.<br />

Aerokit <strong>Cayman</strong>.<br />

Aerokit <strong>Cayman</strong> 1) is another customisation option. It<br />

comprises <strong>new</strong> front splitter spoilers and a fixed rear<br />

spoiler on the tailgate for optimum aerodynamics and<br />

design. Please note that the approach angle is reduced.<br />

Painted wheels.<br />

New in the Tequipment programme are the 19-inch<br />

SportDesign wheels, black (gloss) 1) . <strong>The</strong> wheel centre<br />

is painted entirely in black. <strong>The</strong> wheel hub cover, also<br />

painted black, displays a coloured Porsche crest and<br />

is included.<br />

For vehicles with Tyre Pressure Monitoring (TPM),<br />

Porsche Tequipment now offers the option of<br />

decorative valve caps embossed with the Porsche<br />

crest. A small detail that makes the overall<br />

appearance of <strong>your</strong> tyres even more exclusive.<br />

From the inside: sportiness you can<br />

feel.<br />

Porsche Exclusive & Tequipment has developed<br />

exciting options for the interior too. To supplement<br />

the gear/handbrake lever in aluminium 3) , a unique<br />

gear selector was developed for vehicles with<br />

Porsche dual transmission (PDK). <strong>The</strong> aluminium<br />

gear selector is equipped with leather insets in the<br />

interior colour. <strong>The</strong> matching handbrake lever has<br />

an aluminium handle and leather elements covered<br />

in the interior colour.<br />

Further highlights are design options for the skirt and<br />

frame that surround the PDK gear shift. <strong>The</strong> trim<br />

surround around the PDK gear shift 3) is both covered<br />

in leather matching the interior colour, as well as<br />

painted in either the exterior colour, black or in our<br />

aluminium look.<br />

<strong>The</strong> PCM package 3) also offers exclusive<br />

personalisation options. It can be covered with<br />

leather that matches the interior colour or painted in<br />

the exterior colour, black or in our aluminium look.<br />

3) Earliest availability: 03/<strong>2009</strong>.<br />

Sport bucket seat.<br />

A <strong>new</strong>, sporty option in the Porsche Tequipment<br />

line are sport bucket seats with hinged backrests,<br />

integrated thorax airbags and manual fore/aft<br />

adjustment. <strong>The</strong> cushion shell is made of carbon-<br />

fibre reinforced plastic with a surface made of<br />

visible carbon fibre.<br />

<strong>The</strong> sport bucket seats are available separately in<br />

black leather with an embossed Porsche crest on<br />

the headrests or in black, extremely flame-resistant<br />

fabric. Please note that child safety seats cannot be<br />

used in conjunction with these seats.<br />

Child seats.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> Porsche child seats are also a highlight. <strong>The</strong>y<br />

have a unique, modern design and meet the latest<br />

safety standards. <strong>The</strong>y were specially tested and<br />

approved for Porsche vehicles and provid protection<br />

and comfort to passengers up to 12 years of age.<br />

<strong>The</strong> fabrics used are breathable, comfortable and<br />

easy to clean. <strong>The</strong> covering is removable and<br />

washable. <strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> child seats are black and grey<br />

with a red belt. <strong>The</strong>y can be fitted quickly and easily<br />

to the passenger seat with a child seat adapter<br />

or with the three-point belt system. For increased<br />

protection, the Porsche Baby and the Porsche Junior<br />

Seat ISOFIX use a unique five-point belt system. n<br />

Some go racing to look for a thrill.<br />

For us, it comes from inside.<br />

Experience alone might be enough to build a<br />

sports car. But not a Porsche. And certainly not<br />

the 911 GT3. Such cars demand much more and<br />

rely on engineers devoted to developing racing cars<br />

with a passion for motorsport. That’s how the heart<br />

of the 911 GT3 was created – the <strong>new</strong> engine.<br />

A development produced for motorsport – of course,<br />

with higher performance.<br />

It is perhaps the clearest evidence of<br />

our inner mindset.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3 is powered by a six-cylinder water-<br />

cooled boxer engine with four-valve technology. With<br />

its <strong>new</strong> 3,797 cm 3 displacement, the engine develops<br />

320 kW (435 hp). <strong>The</strong> maximum torque is 430 Nm. <strong>The</strong><br />

maximum RPM is 8,500 rpm. <strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3 passes<br />

the 100 km/h mark after just 4.1 seconds. Its top<br />

speed: 312 km/h. <strong>The</strong> power-to-weight ratio: 312 hp per<br />

tonne. Output per litre: 115 hp per litre displacement.<br />

In short, the <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3 now performs even better<br />

with comparable consumption. It’s compliance with<br />

the strict EU5 exhaust emissions standard also<br />

demonstrates a clear commitment to protecting the<br />

environment.<br />

<strong>The</strong> engine in the <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3 is equipped with<br />

an improved VarioCam, a valve-actuating concept<br />

that distinguishes between different load states<br />

and adjusts automatically to current demands. <strong>The</strong><br />

optimised system now regulates not only RPM and<br />

load-dependent adjustments to the intake camshaft,<br />

but also to the exhaust camshaft as well. For even<br />

more power and torque.<br />

<strong>The</strong> vehicle chassis has absolute<br />

directional stability. A real driving<br />

experience.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3 sits 30 mm lower than the<br />

911 Carrera. Its uncompromising lightweight<br />

construction keeps the total weight and the weight<br />

of the unsprung mass as low as possible. It stands<br />

for extraordinary agility, high driving safety and<br />

secure handling, especially on corners. Every setting<br />

you need for the racetrack can be made to the<br />

vehicle chassis: height, camber, tracking, and the<br />

stabilisers on the front and rear axles.


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

Because the vehicle chassis is so securely attached<br />

to the body, elastic load transfers are lower and<br />

wheel tracking is more precise, in turn resulting in<br />

better handling and steering.<br />

One <strong>new</strong> development is the optional Porsche Active<br />

Drivetrain Mount (PADM)* dynamic engine suspension<br />

– an electronically controlled system for minimising<br />

oscillations and vibrations in entire drive units, but<br />

especially in the engine. Its effect? Whenever you steer<br />

<strong>your</strong> <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3 into a corner, the vehicle follows<br />

the direction you steer. <strong>The</strong> mass of the engine,<br />

however, does not. <strong>The</strong> result is that the rear of the<br />

vehicle on the rear axle is pushed outward when<br />

cornering. <strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> PADM minimises this effect<br />

by constantly measuring steering angle, rates of<br />

longitudinal and lateral acceleration with a sensor.<br />

<strong>The</strong> characteristics of both engine mounts are<br />

adjusted automatically according to driving style.<br />

Both on the racetrack and in everyday situations,<br />

this provides betting handling with shifting loads in<br />

fast bends that you can feel.<br />

<strong>The</strong> optional Porsche Active Suspension Management<br />

(PASM) add-on improves driving stability even further<br />

by actively and continuously controlling the damper<br />

force for each wheel depending on driving style and<br />

situation. It helps to ensure high agility and superior<br />

handling characteristics.<br />

High performance demands a high<br />

degree of safety.<br />

<strong>The</strong> strengthened body structure of the <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3<br />

offers a high degree of protection in a collision in<br />

addition to a very robust passenger cell. <strong>The</strong> driver<br />

and passenger airbags activate at one of two levels<br />

depending on the impact force. In minor collisions,<br />

they deploy at the first stage. <strong>The</strong> airbags are softer<br />

and reduce the shock to passengers. <strong>The</strong> standard<br />

POSIP comprises both side impact protection in the<br />

doors as well as two side airbags per side. With<br />

thorax and head airbags, it offers high protection<br />

potential for lateral accidents.<br />

Uncompromising on the race circuit.<br />

Comfortable in everyday situations.<br />

<strong>The</strong> origin of the <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3’s interior is clear –<br />

motorsport. Everything the driver needs is within<br />

reach and visible at all times.<br />

Two high-quality materials underscore the sportiness<br />

of the <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3 – leather and Alcantara. <strong>The</strong><br />

advantages of Alcantara are that it is non-slip,<br />

washable, and easy to look after. That’s why you’ll<br />

find it in the places you place <strong>your</strong> hands most<br />

– on the steering wheel, the gear lever and the<br />

handbrake.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3 – developed with the aim of<br />

avoiding all compromises. From its inner sanctum. n<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> dynamic engine mounts<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> dynamic<br />

engine mounts.<br />

Motorsport and inertia are terms that should cancel<br />

each other out. That’s why our engineers strive to<br />

measure their developments against the laws of<br />

physics. With its <strong>new</strong> dynamic engine mounts, the<br />

911 GT3 is a bit better than the rest at conquering<br />

inertia.<br />

Its <strong>new</strong> feature is the optional dynamic engine<br />

mounts (earliest availability: 09/<strong>2009</strong>), an<br />

electronically controlled system for minimising<br />

noticeable oscillations and vibrations in the entire<br />

drive unit, especially the engine.<br />

<strong>The</strong> motor is mounted to the rear part of the body in<br />

two places. According to the law of inertia, a body<br />

in a state of uniform movement along a straight line<br />

will continue to move uniformly in a straight<br />

line until acted upon by outside forces that alter its<br />

state. Put simply, if you steer <strong>your</strong> <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3<br />

into a corner, the vehicle will follow the direction you<br />

steer. <strong>The</strong> mass of the engine, however, will not at<br />

first. <strong>The</strong> result is that the rear of the vehicle on<br />

the rear axle is pushed outward due to the inertial<br />

forces of the engine mass.<br />

Magnetic forces work against<br />

inertia.<br />

And the <strong>new</strong> dynamic engine mounts minimise this<br />

effect. Steering angle and rates of longitudinal and<br />

lateral acceleration are measured constantly by<br />

sensors and the characteristics of both engine<br />

mounts are adjusted automatically according<br />

to driving style. This is achieved by mean of a<br />

magnetisable (magnetorheological) fluid and an<br />

electronically generated magnetic field.<br />

<strong>The</strong> magnetisable particles realign themselves and<br />

the fluid’s resistance changes, as do the stiffness<br />

and damping of the engine mounts. <strong>The</strong>y are<br />

softer for more comfort and fewer vibrations in<br />

normal driving situations or harder for a more direct<br />

feeling of contact in more dynamic and sporty<br />

driving situations. This is like the 911 GT3 racing<br />

cars, in which the engine unit is directly mounted<br />

on the body. <strong>The</strong> dynamic engine mounts also<br />

reduce vertical engine oscillations during full-throttle<br />

acceleration. <strong>The</strong> result is a higher and more uniform<br />

propulsion force on the rear axle, more traction and<br />

better acceleration.<br />

Both on the racetrack and in everyday situations,<br />

this means better handling with shifting loads in fast<br />

corners that you can feel. n<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> Panamera<br />

We have no experience in constructing<br />

large, heavy limousines. Fortunately.<br />

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

It’s al<strong>way</strong>s better to find the solution in <strong>your</strong> <strong>own</strong><br />

ranks. So there were no specific guidelines that<br />

required rigid compliance. A limousine was not<br />

wanted, neither was an estate or a coupé. What<br />

we wanted was a Porsche. <strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> Panamera.<br />

It’s all about driving as it was meant to be. And now<br />

it doesn’t matter if you’re sitting in the front or in<br />

the back. Over the course of the design process,<br />

the Panamera models became powerful sportscars,<br />

From left to right: Panamera 4S, Panamera S and Panamera Turbo<br />

designed for long trips for four, with lots of luggage<br />

and plenty of comfort but with the feeling of a<br />

sportscar.<br />

<strong>The</strong> models are three interpretations<br />

of one idea.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> Panamera Turbo embodies high performance<br />

and sporty dynamics – it’s not called a turbo for<br />

nothing. <strong>The</strong> Panamera S and Panamera 4S also<br />

bring action to the breed. But what all Panamera<br />

models have in common is that they dynamically<br />

interpret the concept of luxury.<br />

A novelty in the premium class:<br />

sportscar engineering for four.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> Panamera S and 4S have a 4.8 litre V8<br />

cylinder naturally aspirated engine with direct fuel<br />

injection (DFI), VarioCam Plus and a variable intake<br />

system. It develops 294 kW (400 hp) at 6,500 rpm<br />

and a maximum torque of 500 Nm between 3,500<br />

rpm and 5,000 rpm. <strong>The</strong> rear-wheel drive Panamera S<br />

with manual transmission can accelerate from 0 to<br />

100 km/h in just 5.6 seconds. Its top speed is<br />

285 km/h. With the optional Porsche dual clutch<br />

transmission (Porsche Doppelkupplung – PDK),<br />

these figures are 5.4 seconds and 283 km/h. <strong>The</strong><br />

seven-gear PDK, standard in both the Panamera 4S<br />

and Panamera Turbo, distributes power between<br />

the front and rear axles by the intelligent all-wheel<br />

drive Porsche Traction Management (PTM) system<br />

with an electronically controlled multi-disc clutch.<br />

For optimum traction and stability. <strong>The</strong> Panamera 4S<br />

accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.0 seconds<br />

and has a top speed of 282 km/h. <strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> Panamera<br />

Turbo has a 4.8 litre V8 cylinder bi-turbo engine<br />

with direct fuel injection (DFI), VarioCam Plus, and<br />

charge-air cooling. It generates 368 kW (500 hp) at<br />

6,000 rpm. Its maximum torque of 700 Nm is<br />

attained between 2,250 rpm and 4,500 rpm.<br />

Its top speed is 303 km/h. And it can accelerate<br />

Panamera interior with four individual seats<br />

<strong>The</strong>y include Porsche Communication Management<br />

(PCM) to improve vehicle dynamics even further, at<br />

the push of a button.<br />

You’ve got a front-row seat. In all<br />

four spaces.<br />

<strong>The</strong> first time you sit in any of the <strong>new</strong> Panamera<br />

models, you can’t help noticing three things. First,<br />

the forward-sloping centre console. Second, the<br />

four individual seats. And third, the amount of room<br />

and freedom of movement in the rear. <strong>The</strong> main<br />

characteristic of the rear seats is that there are two<br />

separate, individual seats. With plenty of leg and<br />

head room, even for large adults. And excellent side<br />

support, even during dynamic cornering. Comfort has<br />

not been sacrificed. In the middle there is a stowable<br />

middle armrest with a storage box. <strong>The</strong> backrest can<br />

be adjusted separately to a ratio of 40:60. With the<br />

optional large middle console, both backrests can be<br />

adjusted individually while the console itself remains<br />

fixed.<br />

On request, comfort seats can be installed in the<br />

rear of all <strong>new</strong> Panamera models. <strong>The</strong>y come with<br />

electronic backrest angle adjustment, seat length<br />

adjustment, lumbar support – and the ability to<br />

adjust the front passenger seat from the rear.<br />

Audio and communication.<br />

<strong>The</strong> CDR-31 audio system is standard in the<br />

Panamera S and Panamera 4S and has a 7-inch<br />

colour touchscreen monitor featuring fast and easy<br />

scrolling through the most important functions<br />

and menus. Porsche Communication Management<br />

(PCM) comes as standard in the <strong>new</strong> Panamera<br />

Turbo (optional in the Panamera S and 4S). PCM is<br />

the central controlling unit for audio, navigation and<br />

communication – versatile and efficient – yet easy to<br />

operate. It comprises a navigation module with a quick<br />

hard disk, a high-resolution 7-inch colour touchscreen,<br />

and an optional voice control system. Options for the<br />

middle console include an AUX interface for the PCM,<br />

a USB port and a separate iPod ® port. You can also<br />

choose to have a hybrid TV tuner installed to receive<br />

unencrypted analogue and digital television. <strong>The</strong><br />

optional quad-band GSM telephone module is very<br />

user-friendly with optimised speech quality. Either<br />

insert <strong>your</strong> SIM card directly into the SIM card reader<br />

integrated into the PCM and telephone using the<br />

hands-free facility or a cordless receiver. Or, even<br />

more conveniently, use the Bluetooth ® connection<br />

on <strong>your</strong> mobile phone and the SIM Access Profile<br />

(SAP). In addition, mobile phones that support<br />

Handsfree Profile (HFP) can also be connected using<br />

Bluetooth ® . <strong>The</strong> Panamera sets <strong>new</strong> standards for<br />

sound systems too. <strong>The</strong> optional BOSE ® Surround<br />

Sound System (standard in Panamera Turbo)<br />

produces excellent sound quality. For those with the<br />

highest demands in sound, technology and design<br />

there is also the option of equipping the vehicle with<br />

the Burmester ® High-End Surround Sound-System<br />

– with both CDR-31 and PCM.<br />

Rear: plenty of room. Right at the<br />

back: even more room.<br />

Room for four adults with their luggage in a Gran<br />

Turismo? Yes, it’s possible. Only with Porsche. <strong>The</strong><br />

luggage compartment in the <strong>new</strong> Panamera models<br />

has a volume of up to 445 litres. That’s enough for<br />

four suitcases of different sizes – all of which you<br />

can find in the Porsche Design Driver’s Selection<br />

product line, matched to the exterior colour of <strong>your</strong><br />

vehicle, if you choose. Unusual in this vehicle class<br />

are the rear seats that can be folded completely<br />

or in sections. Folding them gives you a total of<br />

1,263 litres of storage volume. <strong>The</strong> total useful<br />

load of the Panamera S is 605 kg, the Panamera 4S<br />

580 kg and the Panamera Turbo up to 530 kg.<br />

Burmester ® High-End Surround Sound-System<br />

Luggage compartment of the <strong>new</strong> Panamera models<br />

<strong>The</strong> fourth dimension. Four doors. Four seats.<br />

A sportscar for four. With room for luggage and<br />

no compromises – it’s our contribution to premium<br />

class driving, because we thought it could do with<br />

a bit more pep. n<br />

Porsche Museum<br />

Breaking all conventions: the <strong>new</strong> Porsche<br />

Museum is open!<br />

It’s clear at first glance that the <strong>new</strong> Porsche<br />

Museum is a cut above the rest. It doesn’t try to<br />

blend in, but instead to stand out with its breath-<br />

taking architecture. It has just opened its doors<br />

and invites you to see things through Porsche’s<br />

eyes.<br />

As the <strong>new</strong> annex to the main factory in Stuttgart-<br />

Zuffenhausen, Porsche’s museum is an architectural<br />

wonder, resembling a detached and dynamically<br />

formed body that seems to float over one storey<br />

height above the earth. <strong>The</strong> 5,600-square-metre<br />

exhibition hall is constructed on a foundation of<br />

three cores of reinforced concrete.<br />

Like the exhibition hall itself, the structure of the<br />

<strong>new</strong> museum’s content is based on three pillars,<br />

the chronological Porsche product history being the<br />

central guide to help visitors find their <strong>way</strong> around.<br />

Accompanying this are a number of exhibits focused<br />

on different epochs, which direct visitors’ attention<br />

to Porsche’s most important vehicles, racing<br />

rankings and technical innovations.<br />

<strong>The</strong> historical development and the exhibits devoted<br />

to individual themes are connected by a number<br />

of small exhibits that revolve around the distinctive<br />

characteristics of the brand – the “Porsche idea”.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y speak of the spirit and passion that Porsche<br />

stands for and honour both the corporation and the<br />

people who develop and manufacture its products.<br />

A total of 80 or so vehicles and numerous small<br />

exhibits are on display. In addition to classic<br />

Porsches like the 356, 550, 911 and 917, the<br />

engineering efforts of Professor Ferdinand Porsche<br />

from the early years of the 20 th century are also<br />

commemorated.<br />

Immediately on entering the foyer, visitors to the <strong>new</strong><br />

museum will encounter the fascination of the Porsche<br />

brand. In addition to the snack bar, cafť and museum<br />

shop, you can also take a look into the museum<br />

workshop for historic Porsche vehicles. Here, expert<br />

Porsche mechanics carry out maintenance both<br />

on valuable antiques <strong>own</strong>ed by private customers<br />

as well as on the more than 400 museum vehicles<br />

driven around the world as a “museum on wheels”.<br />

Because all of the cars exhibited are also used on<br />

the road, the appearance of the 80 vehicle exhibition<br />

at Porscheplatz will be in constant flux.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>new</strong> Porsche Museum functions as a venue both<br />

for the exhibition and other events simultaneously.<br />

With its spacious conference areas and its exclusive<br />

catering, it can also be used flexibly, even outside<br />

working hours, for conventions and business-related<br />

or private events. n<br />

Porsche Motorsport<br />

Porsche’s <strong>2009</strong> Motorsport commitment: more<br />

brand cups and a bigger racing programme in<br />

the USA.<br />

40 GT3 Cup vehicles from the <strong>2009</strong> and 2008 model years will head to the racetrack starting in <strong>2009</strong> for the Porsche Sports Cup in the GT3 Cup Challenge<br />

We don’t want to deny our heritage and you can see<br />

it in every Porsche – our roots lie in motorsport.<br />

For over 60 years, we’ve been driven by a passion<br />

for motorsport. Our participation in international<br />

motorsport brand cups with first-class teams attests<br />

to this. In <strong>2009</strong>, we will participate in additional<br />

brand cups and expand our racing programme.<br />

<strong>The</strong> family of Porsche brand cups<br />

will continue to grow in <strong>2009</strong>.<br />

As an addition to the professional Carrera Cup<br />

Germany, Porsche is launching a less expensive<br />

GT3 Cup Challenge for ambitious amateurs. <strong>The</strong><br />

Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Germany will hold six<br />

races in <strong>2009</strong> within the scope of the Porsche<br />

Sports Cup. Mexico will also hold its first GT3<br />

Cup Challenge in <strong>2009</strong>. This will raise the number<br />

of Porsche brand cups – the most successful<br />

customer sport programme of any automobile<br />

manufacturer – to a total of 15.<br />

Success factors in <strong>2009</strong>: the <strong>new</strong><br />

Porsche 911 GT3 RSR, ambition and<br />

passion.<br />

In the USA, Porsche seeks to defend its<br />

championship title in the GT2 class for GT vehicles<br />

nearing series production in the American Le<br />

Mans Series (ALMS) with the <strong>new</strong> 911 GT3 RSR.<br />

In addition, Porsche will intensify its role as the<br />

engine provider in the Grand Am series in the USA.<br />

As in 2008, the Brumos Racing team will employ<br />

two Daytona prototypes with six-cylinder Porsche<br />

911 boxer engines. But that’s not all, another <strong>new</strong><br />

addition is the Penske Racing team, which will use a<br />

vehicle with a Porsche drive for works drivers Timo<br />

Bernhard and Romain Dumas. Both drivers enjoyed<br />

Grand Am series, 1 st race, Daytona 24, USA, Porsche Riley, Penske Racing<br />

successful beginnings in the Grand Am series.<br />

Bernhard’s record of success in the Daytona 24<br />

was an overall victory in 2003 and a class victory<br />

in 2002 with a total of six appearances. Dumas has<br />

competed in Daytona four times, winning third place<br />

twice in the class in 2002 and 2008. <strong>The</strong> Daytona<br />

prototypes are full-blooded vehicles specially<br />

designed for racing and ready for the Grand Am<br />

series. GT-class racing cars, in contrast, are based<br />

on mass-produced models that have been modified<br />

for racing.<br />

<strong>The</strong> racing line-up offers an exciting mix of long-<br />

distance races like the opening event with the<br />

legendary 24 hours of racing in Daytona. We’re<br />

looking forward to a successful and exciting <strong>2009</strong><br />

racing season! n<br />

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

Brilliant Line Up and Impressive Calendar<br />

Herald New Season.<br />

Reigning, former and potential champions join <strong>new</strong><br />

faces for this season’s dazzling crop of Porsche<br />

Carrera Cup Asia talent, and with one of the most<br />

exciting race calendars in the series’ history, the<br />

<strong>2009</strong> Porsche Carrera Cup Asia (PCCA) is all set<br />

for a seventh sensational season.<br />

Reigning Class A Champion Darryl O’Young of<br />

Hong Kong is back, with a mission to clinch an<br />

unprecedented third Porsche Carrera Cup Asia title<br />

with Team Jebsen.<br />

However, an intense battle is on the cards between<br />

2008 champion O’Young, 2007 champion Tim<br />

Sugden of GruppeM Racing, and 2008 title runner-up<br />

Christian Menzel of Team StarChase. With Germany’s<br />

Menzel missing out on the championship by a mere<br />

two points last season after a nail-biting title-decider<br />

in Bahrain, with Briton Sugden finishing third, the trio<br />

are guaranteed to have spectators on the edge of<br />

their seats all year.<br />

But also some exciting <strong>new</strong> faces are sure to<br />

provide plenty of surprises this year. Rodolfo Avila<br />

of Macau makes his debut with the series driving<br />

for Asia Racing Team. <strong>The</strong> 22-year-old competed<br />

already in first Asian and then British Formula 3,<br />

and International Formula Masters, before making<br />

a successful switch to sportscars last year.<br />

Jeffrey Lee of Chinese Taipei will contest his first<br />

full PCCA this season with PTRS Motorsport, having<br />

joined the series after the opening rounds last year.<br />

Indonesian talent Danny Chu will be one to watch<br />

this year as he capitalises on the experience gained<br />

during his debut season in 2008. Mok Weng Sun<br />

of Team PCS Racing returns for his second year in<br />

Class A having won Class B in 2007. Also returning<br />

to Class A is Dilantha Malagamuwa, who finished<br />

seventh in 2008 and will be looking to improve on<br />

his overall standing in the <strong>2009</strong> season.<br />

After losing out on the Class B title in the final race<br />

of the 2008 season, Corum ThunderAsia Racing’s<br />

Melvin Choo is looking to avenge his loss with a<br />

strong challenge in <strong>2009</strong>. Facing Choo will be<br />

Hong Kong’s Philip Ma with Jacob & Co Racing and<br />

Singapore’s Yuey Tan, competing in his first full<br />

season of the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia after getting<br />

a taste for the series with three races in 2008.<br />

Another <strong>new</strong> entrant into Class B field is Mak Ting<br />

Hak, a Hong Kong sports and touring car racer.<br />

<strong>The</strong> <strong>2009</strong> Porsche Carrera Cup Asia begins in April,<br />

with the opening races held as part of the <strong>2009</strong><br />

Formula 1 Chinese Grand Prix at the Shanghai<br />

International Circuit before the series makes a<br />

welcome return to Beijing’s <strong>Go</strong>ldenport Circuit for<br />

an entire weekend in May dedicated to Porsche.<br />

Having raced on China’s Eastern Seaboard and in<br />

the nation’s capital, the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia<br />

next moves to Southern China’s Zhuhai International<br />

Circuit in June as part of the Pan Delta Super<br />

Racing Festival.<br />

In July, the series will be part of the Asian Festival of<br />

Speed weekend at Indonesia’s Sentul International<br />

Circuit, a fixture on the calendar ever since its debut<br />

there in 2006.<br />
