porsche-macan-turbo-s-2014-pdk-q5-1-500x333

Porsche has introduced a fifth model to their lineup, the Macan. Unveiled at this week’s LA Auto Show, the younger sibling to the Cayenne SUV will appeal to a niche that’s comprised of car enthusiasts and family car buyers alike. The compact crossover is set to reach North American showrooms next year, with two V6-powered models, the Macan S and Macan Turbo. Both will feature the German automaker’s seven-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission and standard four-wheel drive, with the pricetags for each coming in at $49,900 and $72,300 respectively.

Check out the Porsche Macan in action for the first time below.

2014 Porsche 911 Turbo

2014 Porsche 911 Turbo

Porsche has unveiled the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S, two rear-engine monsters that make the 40th anniversary of the 911 a memorable one. It looks great and the performance numbers are phenomenal. The turbocharged, 3.8-liter flat-six engine makes use of twin, variable-turbine-geometry turbos. For the standard Turbo, we’re talking output of 520 horsepower, a 0-60 mph time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 196 mph. Porsche’s Turbo S delivers 560 horsepower, 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 198 mph. Porsche’s seven-speed PDK dual-clutch gearbox handles everything and helps the Turbo deliver a Nürburgring time of under 7 and a half minutes. The wide body design for this generation of Turbo is really something else. It’s 1.1-inches wider than a Carrera 4 with hugely flared rear fenders. The Turbo S stands out with its standard full-LED headlight.Look out for a deployable, three-stage front spoiler, and a three-way rear wing.

Look for more details around the Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S in the months ahead, though here’s a price breakdown — Turbo model will start at $149,250, while the Turbo S will go for $182,050. First look video from Porsche below.

2014 Porsche Panamera

2014 Porsche Panamera

Porsche will officially take the covers off the 2014 Porsche Panamera at the Shanghai Motor Show later this month but here’s the scoop. The refreshed Panamera features subtle enhancements to the exterior like new LED lighting including full LED headlamps and slight adjustments to the rear. We were really excited to learn that Porsche will now offer a Panamera S E-hybrid model which features plug-in technology that builds on the Panamera S Hybrid from a few years back. A more powerful electric motor and higher-performance battery have been added, with recharge times being quoted at two and a half hours when plugged in to a 240-volt outlet. Charging as well as other vehicle data can be monitored via a new Porsche Car Connect app available for Android and iOS devices.

The E-Hybrid is said to have an all-electric driving range of over 20 miles and will be able to travel at speeds up to 84 miles per hour just on electric power. The Panamera S Hybrid is still a Porsche and it shows with the performance figures — 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds with a top speed of 167 mph. Total output for the E-Hybrid is coming in at 416 horsepower and 435 lb-ft of torque when mated to an eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission. The S and and 4S models will be ditching their naturally aspirated V8 engines for new 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that delivers a boost in performance to 420 horses (up 20 from its predecessor) and 383 lb-ft of torque (up 15) and is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
