For Porsche N Rated Tyres Info, see below Porsche Tyres Porsche builds high performance vehicles which require tyres adapted to these performances. To this end, Porsche integrated tyre selection in the development process of each vehicle. Tyres which have undergone the tests and obtained validation by Porsche are then accredited with an “N” specification. The Porsche specifications are as follows: N0, N1, N2, N3, etc. These indications on the side of the tyre mean that these tyres have been accredited by Porsche. The numbers following the “N” code: 0, 1, 2, 3 represent the various accreditations by Porsche over time. This means that N0 was the first tyre accredited. Thereafter, based on the modifications made on the tyre, this same reference is identified as N1, then N2, etc. When a new tyre is selected by Porsche, the index starts at N0 once again. Watch out, it is absolutely necessary to select tyres accredited by Porsche as these have been designed for your car.

Tel. 01483 425 944 Porsche N-Rated Tyre Approval Sports car tyres make a major contribution to the ability of high performance sports to “stick to the road”. Their tyres are very complex products meeting numerous, largely contradictory demands. Finding the proper structure that balances these demands for any given application is the great challenge in tyre design. Porsche manufacturers and designs some of the highest performance vehicles in the world, as a result tyres play an integral role in vehicle performance. Porsche has integrated tyre development throughout their process of vehicle development. To be an Original Equipment tyre provider on a Porsche vehicle or be approved by Porsche for the replacement market requires the joint product development efforts of the tyre engineers working alongside the Porsche vehicle engineers. N-Rating Production tyres that have passed all of the tests and received the engineering department’s release can be branded with an N-specification. The N-specification brandings include: N-0 (N-zero), N-1, N-2, N-3 etc. These markings on a tyre’s sidewall clearly identify them as approved by Porsche for their vehicles. The N-0 marking is assigned to the first approved version of a tyre design. As that design is refined externally or internally, the later significant evolutions will result in a new generation of the tyre to be branded with N-1, N-2, etc, in succession. When a completely new tyre design is approved, it receives the N-0 branding and the succession begins again. Research and Development The focus in recent radial tyre development for Porsche vehicles has included optimum handling on dry surfaces and the safest possible behavior on wet surfaces, even at high speeds. Tyres developed by various manufacturers, in concert with Porsche, offer a specific set of wet grip properties which few, if any, other automobile manufacturers demand in equal measure from the tyres they use on their vehicles. Tyres may be specified for a particular vehicle or range of vehicles and must successfully pass the tyre company’s laboratory, track and race tests to assure that they would be capable of adequately supporting the Porsche vehicle. Approval testing ensures tyres can reach their top speed on the Autobahn whilst meeting Porsche’s noise, hydroplaning, high-speed durability, uniformity, serviceability and handling requirements. Changing Tyres It is recommended that only matching tyres be used on Porsche vehicles. Since many Porsche vehicles are fitted with differently sized tyres on their front and rear axles, this means matching the tyre make, tyre type and N-specification. If a vehicle was originally delivered with N-specification tyres that have been discontinued and are no longer available, it is recommended to change all four tyres to a higher numeric N-specification design appropriate for that vehicle. Mixed tyre types are not recommended. Tyres should be replaced no less than in pairs on one axle at a time. Only tyres of the same tyre make and type must be used. However, in case of tyre damage such as cuts, punctures, cracks or sidewall bulges that cause a single tyre to be replaced for safety reasons, the remaining matching tyre on that axle must not exceed 30 percent wear to the other axle tyre. Otherwise both axle tyres need replacing, as handling inconsistencies may result if this is not done. Brand new tyres do not offer their full traction during the first 60-100 miles, therefore drivers should therefore drive at moderate speeds in order to bed in new tyres. If new tyres are installed on only one axle, a noticeable change in handling occurs due to the different tread depth of the other tyres. However, this condition disappears as new tyres are broken in. Drivers should adjust their driving style accordingly. It is also important to know that while Porsche N-specification tyres have been fine tuned to meet the specific performance needs of Porsche vehicles, the tyre manufacturers may also build other tyres featuring the same name, size and speed rating as the N-specification tyres for non-Porsche applications. These tyres may not be branded with the Porsche N-specification because they do not share the same internal construction and/or tread compound ingredients as the N-specification tyres. Using tyres that are not N-specific is not recommended and mixing them with other N-specification tyres is not permissible. Tyre Speed Rating You will find your speed rating on the side of your tyre. Like in the image displayed here, the speed rating can be found at the end of the tyre size. It is always represented by a letter. In this case, a “Y”. Once you know your tyre size, you can work out what is the maximum speed that your tyre can handle. For example, the “Y” rating seen in the image, tells us that this tyre can reach speeds of up to 186mph. Speed ratings are based on scientific tests where the tyre is run at speeds in 6.2 mph steps in 10 minute increments until the required speed has been met. New EU Tyre Lables In November 2012 a new piece of legislation comes into force that required the majority of new tyres to come with EU set Tyre Labels. Which meant that every new tyre sold within Europe (with some exceptions) must be labelled – much like a fridge, freezer or even light bulb. With the following labels seen when shopping for new tyres: You will notice that it bears a remarkable resemblance to the labels used for electric goods in the EU. However, unlike the electrical labels, the tyre label doesn’t focus on energy ratings. It shows you the grade given to 3 important categories that should be considered when choosing a tyre: (1) Fuel Efficiency (2) Wet Grip and (3) External rolling noise. The main goal of the new legislation is to provide more information to motorists on the performance of tyres. By doing this, the EU hope to increase road safety, make shopping for tyres more cost-effective and reduce the impact tyres have on the environment. With each tyre on the market being tested and classified using the same criteria, vehicle owners will now be able to make a more informed decision when shopping for new tyres – with tyres easily comparable for these specific capabilities. Porsche Track Day Tyres Michelin Pilot Sport Cup This is an ‘N’ Rated Tyre, on a closed race circuit, MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup is quicker on average compared to its principal competitors. The leading track tyre for the road. Used as original equipment on the 911 GT3 RS and 911 Turbo this tyre is built for pure performance driving. The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup is a competition tyre designed specifically for serious performance enthusiasts such as track day drivers. Featuring a racing tyre tread compound built for the track, best when being used at 70 – 100 Centigrade. If you’re driving in cold, icy or snowy weather you should be very aware that this tyre does not do well in these conditions. Toyo R888 Track Day Tyre The Toyo R888 is a road legal track day tyre (not N Rated), used by a large selection of Porsche 911 track day drivers, as effective alternative to the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup track day tyre, which is fitted by Porsche to new 911 GT3’s. Designed by the Toyo Motorsport Team using the latest computer modeling, the R888 is one of the most sophisticated track day tyres offering maximum performance. The R888 boasts an outstanding compound which delivers outstanding results in the dry and wet, with a medium soft compound that has performed significantly better than soft compound competitor track day tyres. Some road legal track tyres have to provide warnings about their use in the wet. Whilst it is not designed as a wet tyre, the R888 outperforms other track tyres here, so if there is a down pour on a track day, drivers can continue rely on its performance on track and for the journey back on normal roads. Precautions for use of Road Legal Track Day Tyres on the Road. These types of tyre are homologated for road use and meets all the legal requirements for use on the open road. However, the tyre is designed for track use, and in these conditions offers clear advantages in dry grip and cornering when compared to standard tyres. The main characteristics that give this performance gain are a reduced original tread pattern depth, and a special construction in the crown area.

Porsche and the four cylinder flat engine

1948: Porsche 356 In July 1948, a murmur makes its way through the village of Gmünd in Kärnten. A vehicle drives through the idyllic town in the Alps – a car unlike any other the world had ever seen: stylish and dynamic, sporty, infinitely elegant. The Porsche 356 glistens in the Austrian summer sunshine: the first vehicle with the official brand name “Porsche”. Previously, the automotive design office of Ferdinand Porsche had developed all of its vehicles in the name of other manufacturers. The first Porsche had a four-cylinder engine – and it won over car fans, not only by its charming appearance, but also by its fast-paced character. The very first 356 prototype – production number 1 – raced a fast demonstration lap at the city street race in Innsbruck. Back then it still had a mid-engine; later in production, it was replaced by a rear-mounted engine. The engine in the 356 is an old acquaintance. It is based on the Volkswagen flat engine that was developed by the Porsche design office in the 1930s. After Innsbruck, it could no longer be held back. There is hardly a classic race the car has not won: the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 1000 Kilometres of Buenos Aires, the Mille Miglia, Targa Florio, Carrera Panamericana. The Porsche 356 was always out at the front. 356 Nr. 1 Roadster, Gmünd, 1948, Porsche AG 1953: Porsche 550 Spyder In 1952, Porsche KG decided to become involved in manufacturer’s racing. The Porsche race car was to be compact, powerful and fast. And above all lightweight to ideally utilise the engine’s power. Engineers went to work – and created the 550 Spyder. Mid-engine construction, ultralight aluminium body, 550 kg unladen weight. And a four-cylinder flat engine that made itself heard quite loudly. Named the Fuhrmann engine after its designer, the engine developed a respectable 110 hp thanks to four camshafts. That was 60 hp more than the first 356 engine just five years prior. It catapulted the Spyder to high speeds of up to 220 km/h. Its performance at the Targa Florio in 1956 was legendary. At this tradition-rich endurance race in Sicily, Umberto Maglioli and Huschke von Hanstein went to the start in a Porsche 550 A. And they finished victorious – with a full 15 minute lead over even the six- and eight-cylinder competition. 550 Spyder, 1953, Porsche AG 1957: Porsche 718 Once again, race engineers accomplished a tremendous task. Despite the visual similarities to its predecessor, the 550 Spyder, the performance data of the Porsche 718 RSK spoke a unique language. At first, 148 hp, and in the 718 RS60 with 1.6 litres of displacement an impressive 160 hp, were teased from the four-cylinder engine. With an unladen weight of just 530 kg, the 718 also trimmed some significant weight compared to the 550 A Spyder that weighed 550 kg. The mid-engine sports car could now sweep over the asphalt at a maximum speed of 260 km/h. Thanks to this increase in performance, the Porsche 718 even surpassed the success of its predecessor. At the Targa Florio, the 718 was overall victor in 1959 and 1960; it raced to a class victory in 1958 and 1961, and it was the uninterrupted European Hill Climb Champion from 1958 to 1961. The 718 was also modified into a single-seater and competed in Formula-2 and Formula-1 racing. 718 RSK Spyder, Porsche AG 1963: Porsche 904 Carrera GTS An innovation at Porsche: the steel box frame of the Carrera GTS is joined to a body made of polymer. The glass fibre reinforced polyester resin developed by BASF gives the car body an elementary advantage: lightness. And it made genuine racers out of the stylistically confident rockets designed by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche with their characteristic design. Not only in motorsport competitions, but also in the hands of individual customers. Demand for the elegant mid-engine sports car was so high that in addition to the 100 units needed for homologation an additional 16 Carrera GTS cars were built. In 1964, the Carrera GTS achieved a prestigious victory. After 720 high-paced kilometres over dusty streets and through tight bends, after seven hours and ten minutes of wild driving along the coast of Northern Sicily, Antonio Pucci and Colin Davis charged across the finish line in first place at the Targa Florio. Once again, the Fuhrmann engine, Porsche’s proven four-cylinder flat engine put on a display for its class. 1976: Porsche 924 To introduce its new model, Porsche planned a high-speed drive. It optimised a Porsche 924 to set an endurance speed record. The goal was to drive the car a distance of 10,000 miles at an average speed of over 250 km/h. The engineers soup up the standard turbocharged four-cylinder engine to 250 hp, and the aerodynamics of the 924 are further perfected in the wind tunnel. This boosts the top speed of the endurance sports car to 280 km/h. However, the record attempt would never take place – shortly before the drive planned in July 1977 the project was stopped for strategic reasons. As a topical response to the oil crisis of the early 1970s, it was decided that the production 924 would be equipped with an efficient four-cylinder in-line engine. For the first time, Porsche also employed a water-cooled front engine in combination with a transaxle gearbox at the rear axle. In the base version, the compact sports car had a power output of 125 hp, and the S versions up to 160 hp. The turbocharged engine of the 924 Carrera GT even reaches 210 hp and a top speed of 240 km/h. In successor models to the 924, the 944 and 968, the designers remained true to the combination of an in-line four-cylinder engine and the transaxle concept. The 944 became one of the most successful sports cars of its time – and it saved Porsche AG through the economically turbulent 1980s. 924, exhibition “top secret”, Porsche museum, 2014, Porsche AG 1981: Porsche 944 In one of the successor models to the 924, the 944, the designers remained true to the combination of an in-line four-cylinder engine and the transaxle concept. In 1981, it closed the gap between the entry-level 924 model and the 911 SC. With 163 hp and a list price of 38,900 DM, the 944 was positioned precisely between the two models. The centrepiece of the 944 was its newly engineered naturally-aspirated engine with 2.5 litres of displacement. The in-line four-cylinder engine is based on the right cylinder bank of the eight-cylinder engine of the Porsche 928. Thanks to the use of two Lanchester balancer shafts, the 944 engine was smoother running than many six-cylinder engines. Its digital engine electronics and L-Jetronic fuel injection also pointed the way to the future. 1986 Porsche 944, Zuffenhausen, 2015, Porsche AG 2014: Porsche 919 Hybrid In the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC), new efficiency rules have been in force since 2014. They are strict – necessitating a sort of deep pass for the ambitious race car engineers in Weissach. It is a tremendous challenge that promises – along with fame and glory on the race course – genuine benefits for future production car technologies at Porsche. For Porsche, this was a convincing argument for re-entering competition in the premiere class of racing in the 2014 WEC season after 16 years of abstinence. The candidate: the Porsche 919 Hybrid. Its revolutionary drive concept combined an extremely compact, highly turbocharged 2-litre four-cylinder engine with a powerful electric motor on the front axle. Two energy recovery systems and highly advanced lightweight carbon construction provided for maximum efficiency. The ultimate stress test for the 919 Hybrid: Le Mans. At the legendary 24-hour race, the two prototypes had a strong race in 2014. Toward the end of the competition, however, they had to bow out due to technical problems. In the months that followed, the motorsport department in Weissach had a singular purpose: produce the perfect 919 Hybrid for the 2015 season. Even more power, better reliability, higher performance. The rocket was optimised in nearly all of its details – and in the end it achieved its long-awaited first and second place victory at Le Mans. 919 Hybrid Nr 19, 919 Hybrid, Nr 17, Finish Line, Le Mans, 2015, Porsche AG Consumption data 718 Cayman: Combined fuel consumption 7.4 – 6.9 l/100 km; CO2 emissions 168 – 158 g/km 718 Cayman S: Combined fuel consumption 8.1 – 7.3 l/100 km; CO2 emissions 184 – 167 g/km Related Content 09/07/2016 Harnessing Air and Water in the 718s Porsche shifted the majority of its 911 models to turbo engines last year. 07/12/2016 The eight-cylinder V-engines Porsche has been building high-performance engines. 07/03/2018 The flat engine tradition at Porsche When people think of Porsche, the first thing that comes to mind is often the flat engine.

Its 368 kW (500 hp) four-litre naturally aspirated flat engine and six-speed manual sports transmission places the 911 R firmly in the tradition of its historic role model: a road-homologated racing car from 1967. Produced as part of a limited production series, the Porsche 911 R (R for Racing) performed in rallies, in the Targa Florio and in world record runs.Like its legendary predecessor, the new Porsche 911 R relies on systematic lightweight construction, maximum performance and an unfiltered driving experience: this special limited-edition model of 991 units has an overall weight of 1,370 kilograms and is currently the lightest version of the 911. With the high-revving six-cylinder naturally aspirated engine and manual sports transmission, Porsche is once again displaying its commitment to especially emotional high-performance sports cars. Developed in the motorsport workshop, the 911 R extends the spectrum of high-performance naturally aspirated engines alongside the motor racing models 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 RS.At work in the rear of the Porsche 911 R is the six-cylinder flat engine with a displacement of four litres, familiar from the 911 GT3 RS. The racing engine delivers 500 hp at 8,500 rpm and generates 460 Nm at a speed of 6,250 rpm. From a standing start, the rear-engined car breaks through the 100 km/h barrier in 3.8 seconds. In keeping with the puristic character of the vehicle, the 911 with its lightweight design is available exclusively with a six-speed sports transmission. Short gearshift travel underlines the active driving experience. The forward thrust of the 911 R continues to a speed of 323 km/h. Combined fuel consumption in the NEDC is 13.3 l/100 km.2017 Porsche 911 RA thoroughbred driving machine: technology from the race trackThe Porsche 911 R could almost have been made for tight corners. The specially tuned standard rear-axle steering guarantees especially direct turn-in characteristics and precise handling while maintaining high stability. The mechanical rear differential lock builds up maximum traction. Ensuring the greatest possible deceleration is the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) as a standard feature. It measures a generous 410 millimetres on the front axle and 390 millimetres on the rear. Ultra High Performance Tyres of size 245 millimetres at the front and 305 millimetres at the rear are responsible for contact to the road. They are mounted on forged 20-inch lightweight wheels with central lock in matt aluminium.Motorsport development has specially adapted the control systems of the Porsche Stability Management (PSM) for the 911 R. A double-declutch function activated by pressing a button for perfect gearshifts when changing down is also part of the repertoire of the Porsche 911 R as is the optional single-mass flywheel. The result is a significant improvement in spontaneity and high-revving dynamics of the engine. For unrestricted practicality in everyday use, a lift system can also be ordered: it raises ground clearance of the front axle by approximately 30 millimetres at the touch of a button.With its overall weight of 1,370 kilograms, the Porsche 911 R undercuts the 911 GT3 RS by 50 kilograms. Bonnet and wings are made of carbon and the roof of magnesium. This reduces the centre of gravity for the vehicle. Rear windscreen and rear side windows consist of lightweight plastic. Additional factors are the reduced insulation in the interior and the omission of a rear bench seat. The optional air conditioning system and the radio including audio system also fell victim to the slimming cure.Wolf in sheep’s clothing: classic 911 look with GT motor racing technologyFrom the exterior, the Porsche 911 R gives a reserved impression. At first sight, the body resembles that of the Carrera. Merely the nose and rear body familiar from the 911 GT3 hint at the birthplace of the 911 R: namely the motorsport department in Flacht. In technical terms therefore, the Porsche 911 R has a lot to show under the bonnet: the drive technology comes from the GT3 RS. All the lightweight components of the body and the complete chassis originate from the 911 GT3. However, with a view to road use, the body manages without the fixed rear wing. Instead, a retractable rear spoiler, familiar from the Carrera models, and a rear underbody diffuser specific to R models provide the necessary downforce. Front and rear apron come from the 911 GT3. The centrally positioned sports exhaust system consists of the lightweight construction material titanium. A redesigned spoiler lip is installed at the front. Porsche logos on the sides of the vehicle and continuous colour stripes in red or green over the entire mid-section of the vehicle show the relationship to its legendary predecessor.The driver sits in a carbon full bucket seat with fabric centre panels in Pepita tartan design, recalling the first 911 in the 1960s. An “R-specific” GT sport steering wheel with a diameter of 360 millimetres receives steering commands from the driver. Gearshifts take place in traditional manner via an R-specific short gearshift lever and the clutch pedal. Carbon trim strips in the interior with an embedded aluminium badge on the front passenger’s side indicate the limited number of the Porsche 911 R. A typical feature of GT vehicles are the pull straps as door openers.© 2005-2019

Jack Dorsey, Bitcoin Evangelist, Speaks About Square in Recent Podcast

Jack Dorsey

Twitter founder Jack Dorsey has earned himself the title of ‘Bitcoin Evangelist’—such is his advocation for digital assets. His support of Bitcoin has been consistent and unwavering.

Dorsey, as a successful businessman, is hard to ignore. His support for the leading cryptocurrency spurs on Bitcoin bulls and those who love a strong voice supporting their views.

Jack Dorsey’s Square

The entrepreneur recently participated in a podcast called “Tales from the Crypt” where he spoke about buying Bitcoin.

Interestingly, he told how he “maximizes the $10,000 Bitcoin purchase limit on Square Cash to acquire the leading cryptocurrency.”

Square is a payments platform with a built-in cash app. This allows its users to send money to others in an instant.

With a merchant payment system embedded, it is also aimed at the everyday worker who has to send invoices, for example.

According to its website:

“We’re empowering the electrician to send invoices, setting up the food truck with a delivery option, helping the clothing boutique pay its employees, and giving the coffee chain capital for a second, third, and fourth location.”

The businessman believes platforms like Square are the future for cryptocurrency.

March has been an interesting month for Bitcoin. The top coin by market cap has been growing, and the entire cryptocurrency market has added $6 billion to its valuation. At the time of writing, Bitcoin is selling for $3,909. However, it nearly breached the $4,000 mark during the week. Bullish calls from Jack Dorsey and other prominent figures are helping to cause a lift.

>> Coinbase Upgrades: Wallet App and OTC Desk Get Improvements

Brian Kelly

Earlier in the week, for example, Brian Kelly, CEO of BKCM, said he believed the “crypto winter” was ending. Since he spoke, Bitcoin price rebounded to over the $3,900 mark. He said further that Bitcoin is showing improvement:

“If you look at the number of addresses that have been created on the Bitcoin network, that’s up about 20 percent from the January lows, it’s apt highs at the levels we saw in the spring of 2018 when Bitcoin was well above $6,000. So fundamentally, you’re starting to see improvement.”

What do you think? Do the sentiments of successful businessmen such as Jack Dorsey encourage you to back crypto?

Porsche Driving Experience – Home

It’s a special magic that Porsche has been delivering since the first vehicle produced in 1948. The vehicles ability to corner, brake and accelerate is not only an engineering fete, but it’s an experience that can only be delivered by Porsche. The authentic spirit of the brand is captured into every model produced and when you get behind the wheel, it’s only natural that the corners of your mouth turn up. Our cars may output horsepower, but our drive experience output smiles. The Porsche Experience launched in the United States in 1999 with the advent of the Porsche Sport Driving School. Renamed in 2018 as the Porsche Track Experience (PTX), it was and remains today as the premier driving program in the industry. The Porsche Track Experience is located in Birmingham, Alabama just 15 minutes from the airport at Barber Motorsports Park. Here we have a team of professional driving instructors that can lead you around the 16 turn, 2.38 mile FIA-certified race track and work with you to progress through our curriculum programs to secure your race license if desired. In 2015, Porsche opened the Experience Center; a first of its kind in the United States, with locations in Atlanta and Los Angeles. At the heart of each Porsche Experience Center is the purpose-built driver development track. Designed for the enthusiast in all of us to witness the capabilities of a Porsche first-hand while developing you as a driver. The drive experiences here are all designed to be one-to-one with a Porsche drive coach in the model you select. The curriculums are focused around what you want to get out of your experience; whether it’s learning vehicle control or just to have some fun!

Research Porsche Porsche has a long history, although its early years are somewhat complex. Ferdinand Porsche had been designing cars since 1898, mainly in Austria before decamping for Daimler. By 1934, he had started developing the Beetle on a contract from the Nazi government. After World War II, the Volkswagen factory went to the British, and Porsche was imprisoned. His son, Ferry, built the first real Porsche in Gmund, Austria, using a healthy proportion of modified VW parts, but tuned for performance. From there, the original Porsche, the 356, started winning races almost immediately. The 550 Spyder, an evolution of the 356 ideas, was even more successful and much faster. The aging 356 was replaced by the iconic 911 in 1964, and from there the company’s legend grew. It has dominated several motorsports genres almost completely over the years, producing a list of competition vehicles too long to list here. But after flirting with a few other designs, such as the 914, 924, 944 and 928, the company came up with a formula that worked: a 911 at the core of the lineup, with some SUVs like the Cayenne and the Macan to provide the funds needed to keep the lights on. The 718 Boxster and Cayman twins are the newest Porsche models, sporting turbocharged flat-fours in an echo of the four-cylinder 356 that started it all.

Porsche Logo, History Timeline and List of Latest Models

Porsche is a renowned automobile manufacturer that specializes mainly in producing sports cars. The German automobile maker has succeeded in producing sports cars that are known for performance, quality, and reliability. Above all, the Porsche is popular for producing prestigious sports cars that can be used for everyday driving. Continue reading to learn more about the Porsche logo, the company’s history, important events in its timeline and their newest models. Porsche Logo Porsche Logo The company was founded by Ferdinand Porsche, who was the chief engineer at Mercedes-Benz. He later incorporated his personal engineering plant, where he had developed numerous designs for the ‘People’s Car’ or popularly known as the ‘Volkswagen’. By 1931, Ferdinand incorporated a company under his own name: ‘Porsche’. Beginning of the Porsche history Since he was the engineer for the first Volkswagen, the first Porsche created was manufactured from the machinery of the VW Beetle. In 1938, the first Porsche known as the ‘Porsche 64’ was released by the company. The vehicle gained a lot of popularity and this was the start of the successful time in the history of Porsche. Important Events in the History of Porsche 1940-1960 Porsche in 1940s In the 40s, due to the impending war, Porsche was responsible for creating several designs for heavy tanks and had to cease its production because of the Volkswagen plant being destroyed. However, in 1947, the company returned to producing vehicles and designed a new Grand Prix racing car in Gmund, Austria. A year later, Ferdinand’s son Ferry Porsche built the company’s first sports car, the 356. The racing car too was created from VW parts and was the first roadster to bear the Porsche name. It was during this time that Porsche also designed its logo, which was based on the ‘Coat of Arms of the Free People State’. In 1951, Ferdinand Porsche died due to a heart stroke and the company was taken over by his son, Ferry. That same year, the 356 achieved its first international win: the 1100 CC class. By 1953, the Fuhrman engine was presented in the most famous vehicle, The Porsche 550 Spyder. This 1.5L four-cylinder engine could deliver an impressive 110 BHP that became an immediate success in the automotive industry. Three years later, the company celebrated its 25th anniversary and the 10,000th Porsche vehicle hit the streets. 1960-1980 Porsche by 60s In 1961, Porsche was working on producing a new vehicle which would use a 6-cylinder engine. The body was designed by Ferry’s son, Alexander Porsche. Two years later, the famous Porsche 911 made its debut at the Frankfurt International Automobile Show and the rear air cool engine concept was retained (similar to that of the VW Beetle). In 1964, the production of the 911 began with its coupe model. Both vehicles proved successful and Porsche suddenly became popular throughout Germany. Five years later, Porsche introduced the 914-4 and 914-6 mid engine mount sports cars, both of which made their debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show and won the World Championships for the working class. During the 70s, Porsche reached a new level of success by introducing its well-known 917 with a 4.5-liter 12-cylinder boxer engine. The car won almost every competition it entered. In 1972, Porsche went public and work began on the Weissach Research and Development Center. Two years later, the 911 Turbo made its debut, which marked a new beginning in Porsche’s era. Towards the end of the 70s, Porsche introduced the 924 (the first transaxle sports car) and production of the 928 began in Stuttgart. 1980-2000+ Porsche in 1980s In 1982, Porsche’s 956 became the most successful sports car of the time. Three years later, the company introduced the 959 which came equipped with the latest technology. However, only a limited number of these Porsche cars were built, but it became the first sports car to win the Paris Dakar. In 1988, the Porsche 911 Carrera 4 made its debut. A year later, Porsche introduced its second-generation Carrera which was its first model to utilize the tiptronic transmission (both manual and automatic). In 1993, Porsche introduces its Boxter concept car at the Detroit Auto Show, which became an immediate success. Two years later, the new 911 Turbo made its debut, which featured the bi-turbo engine. It was the first production vehicle to have an onboard diagnosis. Additionally, when compared to other cars on the market, due to its new technology, it produced the fewest CO2 emissions. Towards the end of the 90s, the 911 featuring a water-cooled engine was released and production on the Boxter began. By 2014, Porsche sold 42,323 vehicles overall. Porsche Automobiles Today Porsche Carrera Currently, Porsche is owned by Volkswagen AG and specializes mainly in producing sedans, SUVs, hypercars, supercars, and high-performance sports cars. Additionally, the company has two subsidiaries, namely Porsche Consulting Group and Mieschke Hofmann und Partner. Interesting News In 1974, Porsche presented the 911 Turbo, which was the first production sports car with pressure regulators and turbocharger. Ferdinand Piech, the company’s founder’s grandson, was chairman and CEO of the Volkswagen Group from 1993 to 2002. Porsche’s production plant in Leipzig, Saxony, accounts for nearly half of Porsche’s annual output.

An Idiot’s Guide To Understanding The Porsche 911 Range

The history and current line-up of the 911 are stupidly complicated, so we’re here to guide you through the madness One of the greatest mysteries in the world of motoring is the Porsche 911 range. Throughout the years there have been so many variants and special editions, that the history and line-up of this legendary sports car can seem baffling at a glance. Fear not, though; after taking you through the equally complicated BMW and Mercedes line-ups, we’ve put together another idiot’s guide to make sense of the Porsche madness. Designations Carrera The Carrera name – taken from the famous Carrera Panamericana road race – has been used throughout the 911’s history, but more recently it’s come to refer to the ‘standard’ 911s. The current 911 Carrera is the base-spec 911, with a 3.4-litre engine. S As with other cars from Porsche (like the Boxster and Cayman), strapping an ‘S’ to the name means a quicker version. In the context of the current 911 line-up, the standard Carrera has a 3.4-litre engine making 350bhp, while the Carrera S has a 3.8-litre lump churning out 400bhp. 4 Put a 4 on the name after Carrera and you get four-wheel drive. Currently, it’s also available on S models as the Carrera 4S. Turbo models are also four-wheel drive, but don’t get a ‘4’ in the name. Cabriolet A refreshingly easy one, this: it’s a 911 with a folding fabric roof. Currently, it’s available as a Carrera, Carrera S, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Turbo and Turbo S. Targa For those that like alfresco motoring but don’t want a full-on convertible, there’s the Targa. Historically available with a removable roof panel, modern versions have a clever folding mechanism. Turbo If you want your 911 with a little forced induction, you’re in luck: turbo power has been available since 1973. Earlier examples are rear-wheel drive, but more recently, 911 Turbos have all been four-wheel drive. The 991 Turbo produces 514bhp, but if you want extra poke, there’s the slightly more powerful Turbo S with 553bhp. GT2 The GT2 is a Porsche for the properly unhinged: it’s a stripped back, track-biased, flyweight like the GT3. Unlike the GT3, however, it has the engine from the 911 Turbo, without the four-wheel drive system. For extra crazy, even more hardcore RS versions have been made in the past. The current 911 line-up doesn’t yet feature one of these, and it remains unconfirmed for the future. GT3 The GT3 first appeared on the 996 generation 911. It has a more potent flat-six that shares only a few parts with the engines of the ‘lesser’ 911s. GT3s are heavily track-focused, with lower suspension, beefier brakes, and things like sound deadening and rear seats binned to reduce weight. RS Short for RennSport (which translates as racing sport), the RS badge first appeared in 1973 on the 911 Classic as the Carrera RS. This lightweight car had revised suspension and beefier brakes, and has become one of the most collectable 911s ever. The RS badge appeared on the 996 generation 911 to make the 911 GT3 RS: an even more track-focused version of the GT3. For the 996 version, weight was further reduced through the use of polycarbonate windows (among other things) and the suspension and engine uprated. Ceramic composite brakes were also dropped in at each corner. An RS version of the 997 GT3 arrived, and the current 991 GT3 will soon be given the RS treatment. The name has also been used for extreme versions of the already deranged GT2 (see GT2 section for more info). Generations Classic (1963-1989) The term ‘classic’ is used to describe all original 911s, which were produced from 1963 all the way up to 1989. A very small number were made early on as the ‘902,’ before Peugeot kicked up a stink about using a ‘0’ in the middle of the name, forcing Porsche to change the name to ‘911.’ All cars had a flat-six; early cars had a 2.0-litre, and the very last Carreras came with a 3.2. 911 Classic Turbos, meanwhile (type 930), had a 3.0-litre flat-six, which was later enlarged to 3.3-litres. 964 (1990-1993) Major revisions to the original 911 led to a new internal designation: 964. The same basic shape was still there, but 85 per cent of the car was new. Its plastic bumpers gave it a very different look, while technology like ABS and power steering was present for the first time in a 911. Another notable 911 first was the electronically raising spoiler, which pops up at 50mph. Engines were still air-escooled, most being 3.6-litre, with a 3.3-litre in the Turbo and 3.75-litre in the RS and RSR. 993 (1993-1998) The last of the air-cooled cars, the 993 is the ultimate 911 generation for many. As with the 964, it still had that recognisable 911 shape, but the new styling was the biggest departure yet for the then 30-year-old sports car. The brakes and suspension were dramatically improved over the 964, while at the rear either a 3.6-litre or 3.8-litre engine was available. 996 (1998-2005) This was the big one. Arriving in 1998, the 996 was all-new. No major component from the 993 was carried over, and most importantly, the brand-new flat-six engine was now (shock horror) water-cooled. The styling was a radical change, too. Again, the same basic 911 shape is there, but it’s a much more curvaceous thing, while the round headlights were dropped in favour of the unpopular ‘fried egg’ designs. Early 996 Carreras had a 3.4-litre engine, while later models had a 3.6-litre. 997 (2004-2012) After the big changes brought about by the 996, the 997 marked a return to the ‘evolution not revolution’ way of 911 progress. Other than the unloved 996 headlights being binned in favour of the classic round design, there’s not much going on visually to tell it apart from its predecessor. Everything was tweaked and improved, though, so it’s no surprise that the 997 became the most successful car in the Porsche 911’s history. Engine displacement ranges from 3.6-litre to 3.8-litres. 991 (2013-present) It was a case of deja vu when Porsche rolled out the ‘new’ 991 911: like the 997, it looked scarcely different to its predecessor. Some call it lazy design, while others might argue that Porsche would be daft to fiddle too much with such a successful car. Either way, there are significant changes under the skin, notably the increase in wheelbase, which moves the rear wheels further back in relation to the engine, aiding weight distribution. Despite the increase in size, weight is actually reduced compared to the 997. At the moment, it’s available with either a 3.4-litre or 3.8-litre flat-six. Which 911 would you choose? Still not sure which 911 you’d go for if you had a big stack of cash to play with? We’ve put together this flow chart to guide you through your dream 911 purchase. Note: chart applies to 991 and 997 generations. The GT3 RS isn’t yet available in the current 991 range, and the GT2 and GT2 RS are so far unconfirmed.
