The Porsche presentation at Auto China is proof of how the Stuttgart-based sports car marque never stops dreaming. Bringing a veritable feast of sports cars showing the perfect balance between heritage and change, passion for the race track and appreciation for sports car culture in daily life, the brand continues to bring the innovative technology of the future integrated with classic design to Porsche enthusiasts.

Porsche Macan is slated to arrive domestically in the third or fourth quarter

Slated for domestic unveiling in the third or fourth quarter of the year, the Porsche Macan which made its global debut in Beijing features a classic design concept. Albeit resembling its larger sibling Cayenne closest, the Macan takes on sporty lines and a lighweight body. It is instilled an able and frugal in-line four cylinder petrol engine with turbocharging, 2.0 liters displacement which delivers 237 hp. Fuel consumption is enhanced by its design: as measured in the NEDC, the fuel consumption of Macan is 7.2l/100km, making it among the most efficient compact SUV in its class. Yet the Macan delivers a very consistent 0 – 100 km/h dash in 6.9 seconds, with top speed of 223 km/h.

Next up at the Auto China for Porsche were the 911s, the Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS. The Boxster and Cayman in GTS guise are both mid-engine sports cars that combine very able performance with undiminished ride comfort. The Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS feature advanced flat six-cylinder engines based on the 3.4-liter engines of the Boxster S and Cayman S. Further read on the Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS.

As a sportscar brand born for the race track, Porsche has an unending enthusiasm for motorsports. Having left Le Mans with glory sixteen years ago, Porsche has now returned to the Le Mans race track, with its 919 Hybrid.

Based on the excellent concept of “Intelligent Performance” and using several advanced Porsche technologies, the innovative hybrid prototype, which had its global debut at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, is celebrating its returning to in the WEC. The 919 Hybrid has both strong performance and great efficiency, providing a look into the future of sports cars.
