- Porsche Tuning, 911, Cayenne
- Geneva Motor Show 2011
Swiss tuner and car specialist Sportec will show three exclusive world premieres at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. The programs cover three models from Porsche; the second generation SP580 (Cayenne Turbo), the most powerful road-going Porsche ever made; the SP800 R (GT2 RS) and an upgraded version of the SPR1 R.
The package for the 2010 Porsche Cayenne Turbo is named SP580 and holds a performance upgrade to 580hp and a maximum torque of 790Nm, a lowering module, a Sportec rear silencer and new 22 inch Mono/7 rims sizing 10.5×22 inch ET51.
The second program is all about the 2011 Porsche GT2 RS, the track-ready sports car limited to only 500 pieces. The SP800R performance upgrade outfitted to the car brings the power to 800hp and a maximum torque to 900Nm. An impressive 180hp and 200Nm more than stock! A custom-made super sports suspension, a solid carbon aero-kit (front spoiler/rear wing extension) and Sportec Mono/7 with central locking system sizing 9×20 inch ET40 / 12×20 inch ET50 are also available for the ultimate sports car from Zuffenhausen.
The Sportec SPR1R was introduced last year at the Geneva Auto Salon. This year they have revised the design of their super sports car, added a semi-sequential transmission and an exclusive matte black foil design. Oh and the name also changed to Sportec SPR1 FL.

- Porsche 918 RSR
- Detroit Auto Show
The 2011 Detroit Auto Show just kicked off with a blast as Porsche rolled out its brand new 918 RSR hybrid supercar. The racer’s sexy sculpted carbon fiber exterior conceals a 563 horsepower, 10,300 rpm v8 engine coupled with two front-wheel drive electric motors for a total of 767 horsepower. Like the 911 GT3 R Hybrid before it, Porsche’s 918 RSR features a flywheel booster system that stores energy when the vehicle breaks and then releases it in a 160hp burst of speed at the press of a button.
Porsche‘s new hybrid supercar takes design cues from classic racers like the 908 and the 917, fusing these classic profiles with cutting-edge hybrid technology. The vehicle’s carbon fiber-reinforced plastic monocoque shell is emblazoned with the starting number 22, recalling the 1971 Le Mans victory of Helmut Marko and Gijs van Lennep.
An endurance racer at heart, the 918 RSR has a clever trick up its sleeve to keep it ahead of the competition. Whenever the vehicle brakes, a flywheel accumulator located next to the driver’s seat captures and stores energy. This energy can then be directed to the vehicle’s twin 102 hp electric motors to provide a burst of speed, allowing the vehicle to rocket ahead of other cars during critical overtaking maneuvers.
Porsche also announced plans to produce diesel and hybrid versions of the Panamera this year as well as a limited number of the 918 Spyder hybrid super sports car, making this a banner year for the luxury auto manufacturer.

- Presentation in Los Angeles Auto Show 2010
As Porsche announced in LA Auto Show, November 2010 – new Porsche Cayman R will be available in sale from February this year.
It’s the perfect Cayman for those who think it needed just a little bit more power and a slightly less weight, because a new Cayman R, is 121 lb lighter and has ten more horses than the Cayman S.
Outside, Porsche has fitted the Cayman S with new 482-millimetre lightweight wheels, and aesthetic tweaks like a subtle stripe package, contrasting-color mirrors and black-accented headlight bezels . New New Cayman R is powered by a tuned-up 3.4 liter six-cylinder engine, develops an impressive 330 horsepower. In the standard configuration it transmits its power to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. The the speed from 0 to 60 mph, now made in 4.9 seconds (or 4,7 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono packages) and the top speed of 175 mph with manual gearbox, or 174 mph with PDK.
