Petrol heads and Porsche fans alike. Welcome. This is 911 heaven. We have tried to cram as much information both, useful and useless in our website. You can buy or sell or just see what’s on the market in the form of second hand sport and luxury. If you are already an owner, and you like to tinker, you can search for spare parts. There are pages dedicated to the different models including the Targa, the Carrera and the GT2 and GT3. Most of all, our favourite, the Porsche 911 Turbo. We don’t know about you, but we just love the Porsche 911.
For me, it all started with Condorman which was a late seventies, early eighties superhero film, in which he never drove the vehicle. The bad guys however did. Black with black tinted windows. Everybody has a different memory of when they first came across the ultimate sports car, which you can tell the world about on our forum. We hope you enjoy our site and would be honoured if you bookmarked us to visit us regularly.
The new Porsche 911
‘Woe to you on Earth and sea, for the Devil sends a beast with wrath as he knows that time. Let him with understanding reckon the number of the beast, as it is a human number. The number is 9-11!’
Porsche 911 2009 model has been officially unveiled. Surprisingly for Porsche it is more fuel efficient. Unsurprisingly, it is faster across the whole range of models it is replacing. Initially there are four versions being launched to replace older Porsche 911’s. These are all in the Porsche 911 range and are the Carrera Coupe, the Carrera Convertible or Cabriolet, the Carrera S Coupe and the Carrera S Cabriolet.
A Porsche 911 that is more fuel efficient! This done because all four models are debuting the new direct injection, flat six power plants which displace 3.6 and 3.8 litres. This means MORE horsepower than the outgoing models combined with better fuel economy. There is also a new option. A SEVEN speed double clutch gearbox! This is called the PDK or the Porsche Doppelkuppling. Direct injection is also a first on the Porsche 911. PDK has been used by Porsche in its racing cars for over 25 years; however, it is the first time it has been incorporated into one of the road models. It is a fully manual gearbox and completely replaces tiptronic, flappy paddle gear shifters and ultimately gives faster gear change, improving straight line acceleration whilst keeping both hands on the steering wheel. The PDK allows for faster acceleration and also reduces he time between gear shifts. This is done by parallel and virtually eliminates any time between gear shifts.
It will generate an extra twenty horses on the 3.6l engine, raising it form 325 horses to 345. The large 3.8l engine used in the Carrera S increases by a full 30 stampeding stallions, up to a massive 385, giving a top speed of 188mph!
Zero to sixty mile per hours in the PDK loaded Carrera is achieved in 4.5 seconds, whilst the Carrera S is 0.2 of a second quicker then the old six gear Carrera S, reaching sixty miles an hour in 4.3 seconds.
There is also another optional extra called the ChronoPlus with launch control which will get rid of any wheel spin from a standing start. Both models the Carrera and the Porsche 911 Carrera S fitted with ChronoPlus will increase their 0-60 time by 0.2 of a second.
The aesthetics of the car have changed slightly, with larger front air intakes to accommodate the extra power and a refined front bumper. The rear view mirrors have a dual arm giving a bigger field of vision. Daytime driving headlights are LED and there is bi xenon for night driving. Inside the Porsche Management Control Centre display has been increased and also has touch screen and will be standard after 2009 on every Porsche 911.
Two new models. The 911 Targa 4 and the Targa 4S. Dealership prices start at roughly £75,300 (that includes VAT). Both designed in the original Porsche image, you can expect 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 kph) in or around the 5 second mark and top speeds of around 175 mph (280 kph) to 180 mph (288 kph). That is quick!
A style and design icon. This is probably the most recognisable, world famous sports car ever. You can pick a new one up, yes there is only model, for just short of £100,000, but that includes VAT. Performance is simply blistering. For more detailed specs, have a look at our Porsche 911 Turbo page, but you are going to able to do 0 to 62 (0 to 100 kph) in a lightning 3.9 seconds and do a top speed of 193 mph (310 kph). No wonder my Fiancé won’t let me have one! This is the Daddy!
The new GT3
The GT2 has been replaced by the GT3. We have definitely been spoiled here. Two different models. The 911 GT3 and the GT3RS. Recommended retail of £79,540 and £94,280 respectively, top end the match the Turbo. 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 kph) are slightly slower than the new Turbo, but hey, who cares about 0.3 of a second. You can find full details and specifications on our GT2 and GT3 page within this website. Full picture are also going to be available, as soon as we find some open source, but enjoy our tribute the Porsche 911.
