Porsche 911 is not just for summer

The Porsche 911 offers sportiness and everyday usability not just when the sky is blue and the sun is shining but also in winter driving conditions. There are numerous Porsche customers in regions in which winter is the rule during most of the year. The northernmost Porsche Centre in the world, for instance, is located in Tromso, Norway. In Norway alone, there are four more Porsche Centres; three Porsche Centres each are available to customers in Sweden and Finland. Many 911 customers enjoy driving in snow and ice also in Alpine countries like Switzerland. Vehicle sales have been growing there year after year. Alongside the Cayenne, the sports car icon is the most successful model in Switzerland. Last year alone, 656 vehicles were delivered to customers there.

Ferrari California 30

The new evolution of the Ferrari California is characterised by the number 30 as it is 30 kilos lighter and 30 horsepower more powerful. The Ferrari California’s V8 now punches out a maximum of 490 hp with maximum torque climbing to 505 Nm at 5000 rpm, thanks to new exhaust manifolds and engine mapping. Its torque curve has also been modified and is higher across the engine’s generous rev range too. Cutting-edge aluminium fabrication techniques and construction technologies used by the Scaglietti Centre of Excellence in the manufacture of the California’s chassis, have also led to an overall reduction of 30 kg in the car’s weight without impinging in any way on its structural rigidity or performance.
