With a striking new face that features a dramatic new headlight design and with a wide and muscular body accented by broad wheel arches, the 2008 Porsche Cayenne's newly sculpted shape provides vivid visual testimony to the vehicle's enhanced technical features.
The 2007 Boxster and Boxster S, aided by more power and torque via new engines fitted with Porsche's VarioCam Plus variable valve timing and lift system, cement the Boxster as the sportscar kingdom's most practical and entertaining value.
The 2007 Porsche Cayman is a hardtop sports car coupe that shares much of its underpinnings with the Porsche Boxster roadster, though the coupe benefits from an even stiffer body thanks to the structural enhancement of having a fixed roof. Thus the Cayman is able to expand on the Boxster's now legendary dynamic capability.
Year after year, the Porsche 911 Carrera and 911 Carrera S Coupes just keep getting better, not through revolutionary re-engineering, but through sometimes subtle changes that take place beneath the cars' now-classic silhouette.
The fabled wide-body, all-wheel-drive version Porsche 911 returns for the 2007 model year with several enhancements. These include tire-pressure monitoring systems, North American navigation systems that include maps of Mexico and Puerto Rico, and there's a new exterior color -- Meteor Grey Metallic. Also available are 19-inch wheels in the new Turbo design.
The Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet and 911 Carrera S Cabriolet offer several new features for the 2007 model year. The additions include standard leather seating surfaces - with the same rear-seat cushions as the Coupe versions of the cars - as well as standard tire-pressure monitoring systems. The optional navigation system for North America now includes maps of Mexico and Puerto Rico. There's also a new exterior color - Meteor Grey Metallic - as well as the new optional 19-inch Turbo design wheel.
With a sure-footed, four-wheel drive powertrain, the enhanced look that comes with their "wide-body" styling, and with tops that open or close at the touch of a button, the 2007 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and 2007 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolets truly are sports cars that can be enjoyed year around and regardless of the season.
The 2007 Porsche 911 Targa 4 and Targa 4S feature a unique roof system that provides their occupants with a panoramic view even when the top is closed. The Targa's roof is made from two glass panels and extends across the full width and length of the passenger compartment, from the windshield header to the leading edge of the engine cover and from side frame to side frame. In other words, the entire roof is glass, and in combination with the windshield and side windows provides a panoramic vantage and protection from the elements.
In the 911 model range, the GT3 provides uncompromising dynamics that let this street-legal machine easily make the transition to the racetrack. The 415-horsepower, 3.6-liter flat-Six engine produces a specific output of 115.3 horsepower-per-liter, among the highest of any naturally aspirated production car. The Boxer engineÍs power peak is reached at 7,600 rpm, on the way to an 8,400 rpm redline -- 200 rpm beyond the previous GT3 model.
The 2007 911 Turbo may be unmatched in its breadth of performance. Few machines can so easily warp our perception of what is possible from a state-of-the-art performance car, and yet so ably serve as a practical and comfortable conveyance for every-day driving. The sixth generation of the range-topping 911 model provides towering performance from a revolutionary, 480-horsepower, twin-turbocharged, 3.6-liter boxer engine, featuring Porsche's first application of variable turbine geometry (VTG). The new 911 Turbo also offers a redesigned, electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system, and evolutionary styling.
