Porsche has announced two new additions to the Porsche Cayenne line — the GTS and GTS Coupe. These new models bring a V-8 engine back to the Cayenne badge. It is a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 developing 453 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque. It connects to the standard 8-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission and delivers power to the wheels through the Porsche Traction Management all-wheel drive. Porsche states it will do 0-60 in 4.5 seconds (4.2 seconds with Performance Start available with the Sport Chrono package). Both models are stated to have a top track speed of 168 mph.
The 2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Coupe is mechanically the same as the Cayenne Turbo SUV with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 developing 541 horsepower and 567 lb-ft of torque, an eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive. But the similarity ends there because the Coupe has smoother lines than the squared-back SUV.
Porsche has developed the perfect track car that can also perform well as a daily driver with the new 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet. What makes it even better is that you can drop the top whenever skies are clear and sunny. Even better, you can enjoy the exquisite fit and finish the 911 Turbo S offers its owners.
Lamborghini is repositioning the Huracán slightly by making all 2020 models Evos. This places it above the base models but strengthens its position against the popular Urus SUV. The Huracán Evo is an emotional statement as much as a performance one, and the Spyder accentuates that emotion to a higher level.
The final Porsche 911 of the 991-model generation was sold at auction by RM Sotheby’s for $500,000, and Porsche matched that amount to bring the total to $1M for the United Way’s Worldwide Coronavirus Fund. The car is a 911 Speedster, only one of 1948 made in the seventh generation of the revered 911.v
Porsche 911 owners have always known their cars were fast and fun, but Porsche has managed to make the 2021 911 Turbo S even faster and definitely more fun. The faster can be attributed in part to the revamped 3.7-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine developing 640 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. This is 60 horses and 37 lb-ft above the previous model. Porsche has published a 0-60 time of 2.6 seconds, but they can be a bit conservative so you might be able to shave off a little bit from their time.
Electric car aficionados may only be interested in the statistic that the 2020 Porsche Taycan beat the Tesla Model S P100D in Ludicrous mode in the quarter-mile. That’s impressive but it doesn’t mean a lot when you and your passengers are stuck in traffic with nobody moving. That’s when your thoughts will turn inward so it’s time to look at the Taycan’s interior and how it will treat your passengers.
Manhattan Motorcars will be featuring our line of performance and luxury vehicles at the upcoming New York International Auto Show on April 10-19, 2020. The show will be held at the Jacob Javits Convention Center on 11th Avenue between 34th and 39th Streets. This premiere show will offer nearly 1,000 vehicles from all over the world on four floors of displays.
The Porsche Panamera GTS might be described as a sport “limousine” which might seem contradictory, but combine a large vehicle with Porsche’s ability to offer power and nimble handling and the contradiction quickly fades away. With four-door access to a luxury interior, your passengers will definitely enjoy riding in your limo.
