If you are in a need for a winter wheel for your Porsche 911, search no more. The 21-inch Gemballa GForged-one designed for the Model 911 Porsche is produced exclusively in a high-quality forging process.

The new Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet and Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet deliver the same blend of dynamism, performance and efficiency offered by the 911 Turbo Coupe models unveiled a few months ago. The turbocharged 3.8-litre six-cylinder engine delivers 520 bhp (383 kW) in the open-top 911 Turbo and 560 bhp (412 kW) in the S model. The cars accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 3.5 and 3.2 seconds respectively, reaching a top speed of up to 318 km/h. And all this while achieving fuel consumption of 9.9 l/100 km (equivalent to 231 g/km CO2). When compared against the respective predecessor models, the new vehicles deliver 30 bhp more power and are 0.2 seconds faster in terms of their standard acceleration.

Porsche 918 Spyder is celebrating its debut at this year’s International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt. The Porsche 918 Spyder is taking on a pioneering role similar to that of the 911 when it was unveiled at the IAA fifty years ago. To mark this anniversary, Porsche is presenting the “50 years 911” limited edition model.

Porsche is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 911 at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt with a special anniversary model based on the 911 Carrera S. Like the original 911, the 911 50th Anniversary Edition is a coupé with a flat-six rear engine and rear wheel drive.
Porsche is presenting the new generation 911 Turbo and Turbo S models featuring new chassis in lightweight design, new all-wheel drive system, active rear axle steering, adaptive aerodynamics and the flat six-cylinder engine with bi-turbo charging. The PDCC active anti-roll system, which is being offered for the first time in 911 Turbo models, increases dynamic performance even more. This system is standard equipment in the 911 Turbo S, as is the Sport Chrono Package with dynamic engine mounts and PCCB ceramic brakes. All of these features are also available as options in the 911 Turbo. The results: The new 911 Turbo S shortens the lap time for the North Loop of the Nürburgring to well under 7:30 minutes – naturally with standard production tyres. The standard sound symposer intensifies the driving experience, it transmits induction sounds of the turbo engine to the passenger compartment via a speaker diaphragm.
In addition to the already available sizes, the legendary BBS CH-R wheel will now be offered in 2013 in 20 inches for the new Porsche 911 (991). The production of the sporty lightweight wheel takes place using the BBS quality low-pressure casting process. The special flow-forming technology, developed for Formula 1, also guarantees the best weight optimization and stability. Relief-milled spokes that reduce the proportion of non-strength-relevant materials to a minimum characterize the high-tech wheel. The CH-R design also includes a value-preserving collision protection which can be replaced if damaged without removing the tires. It is available in the versions brilliant silver, satin black and satin titanium.

The exhaust system is also drivable in closed condition. As sole manufacturer Techart currently offers this valve-controlled exhaust system with double centre tailpipes for all Porsche 911 Carrera S models.
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.

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.
