Porsche doubles down on EV strategy
We have always known that Porsches are super to drive, now according to Germany’s Suedwestbank vintage car index, certain 30+ year-old classic 911 Porsches are also an outstanding investment, having experienced a 683 per cent increase in value over the past 13 years.
The 992 has been spotted undertaking lying laps around the Nürburgring Nordschleife as Porsche looks to cement a lap time at the famous circuit ready for the car’s imminent release. Porsche took two mules out onto the ‘Ring, the most noticeable difference between them found at their rears: the twin oval pipes of one prototype indicates the shape of the stock exhaust system, while the quad-tipped prototype hints at the appearance of cars fitted with optional Sports exhaust.
The new 911 is coming and the re will be a hybrid model… New Porsche 992 911 is almost ready. Redesigned model range appears later this year. Hybrid model will be most powerful 911 yet, while GT3 could retain natural aspiration.
Alongside Vice President Product lines 911 and 718, “Mr 911” August Achleitner, who was keen to learn what the former racing driver thought, Webber had the chance to inspect the car with its camouflage almost completely removed. Returning from his fast laps at Porsche’s development centre in Weissach, he said: “In a word, that was awesome. There are so many highlights. The wide front axle, for example, seemed to give it greater cornering performance and turning-in became even more precise. The different front and back wheel sizes make a big difference to stability when you’re changing direction quickly too. As for the design, I love it: it’s very clear and typical Porsche.”
