In this edition of Porsche news update we take a fresh look at the Macan ‑ a compact SUV with all the practicalities a car of this class brings, but one that defies convention with its superb level of performance, technology and luxury.
We explore the Mission E Cross Turismo. Unveiled at Geneva in March, this innovative concept study demonstrates the Porsche vision of sports cars for the future. All‑electric, four‑door, with 600 hp and 800‑volt charging technology ‑ yielding a 250 mile range from 15 minutes of charge, this would be a Porsche for everyday adventures.
The racetrack is calling with the arrival of the new 911 GT3 RS*. Boasting a 4.0‑litre six-cylinder horizontally opposed and naturally aspirated engine packing 520 hp, the new 911 GT3 RS throws down the gauntlet to road-legal race cars.
Also in this edition, we celebrate 70 years since Ferry Porsche created the first Porsche sports car – the legendary 356 No.1. Porsche will be hosting a number of events throughout the year including taking centre stage as featured marque at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

*This model has limited availability.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
