World premiere of four 911 models and European debut of Porsche's first
four-door, four-seat sports car highlight continuous innovation
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Sept. 8 /CNW/ - With one European and four world
premieres, Porsche AG will once again demonstrate its tradition of technical
innovation at the Frankfurt Motor Show, which opens to the public between
September 17 and 27, 2009.
Among the stars of the show are four new 911 models: the 911 Turbo, the
911 GT3 RS, its 911 GT3 Cup motorsport twin and the limited-edition 911 Sport
Classic, which will not be available in North America. The Frankfurt
exhibition will also mark the European premiere of the four-door, four-seat
Panamera Gran Turismo.
Despite yet another major increase in performance, the new, 500-hp 911
Turbo is the most fuel-efficient sports car in its class, with a new
direct-injection engine and available seven-speed PDK double-clutch gearbox -
perfectly suited to everyday and long-distance driving as well as thrills on
the track. The 911 GT3 RS road car, Porsche's most extreme road-going 911 and
its close relation, the 911 GT3 Cup racing car, both feature a new, wider body
with design changes, higher performance and greater efficiency than before.
The 911 Sport Classic, a unique car built in a limited run of 250 for the most
fanatical 911 collectors, is recognizable by its "double-bubble" roof, its
vintage-look wheels and "ducktail" rear spoiler, reminiscent of the 1973
Carrera RS 2.7.
Visitors to Frankfurt will find Porsche in hall 5.0 at stand B14, which
can be reached through the Congress Centre and Ludwig-Erhard building
entrances. The exhibition is open daily from 9 am to 7 pm.
