Why is Porsche advertising their brand new 911 Carrera cabriolet as a family car? Well maybe Porsche are trying to prove that the new 911 has become much more user friendly and can be driven and enjoyed by the whole family but for me the commercial is way too fake. 1) I mean ok it has two seats at the back but if you are more than 5 years old you wouldn’t fit for sure. 2) Have you ever seen a mom getting into the car and admiring it while waiting for here daughter to come? 3) (with all due respect of course) Have you ever seen a mom revving the engine in a tunnel to enjoy it’s sound? 4) Since when has a child been aloud to put the roof down in his parents brand new Porsche cabrio? 5) I guess this commercial is a good way for a husband to convince his wife to buy a Porsche. Other than that, the Carrera looks and sounds amazing. It’s 3.8 liters flat-six engine delivers 400 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. There is an amazing button that you can add as an option in your Porsche, a magical button that will “release” the exhaust. The sound of the car becomes 😮
Introducing the new 911 GT3 Cup. This Porsche race car is powered by a 3.8 liter V6 delivering 450 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque. Being a race car, this 911 went through the usual, weight removal, aerodynamics added procedure. The commercial is really nice as the dream of a little kid becomes reality when he grew older. The sentence that appears in the commercial “you cannot change a character, you can only sharpen it” describes very well Porsche’s philosophy. They always tend to have very similar models but with little modifications here and there.
This is the commercial of the brand new freshly backed Porsche Cayman and Cayman S that were released at the LA motor show a few days ago. Look wise, the new Cayman is very similar to the Boxster 2013. Well we are use to that with Porsche. They always have this type of “evolution” instead of “revolution” strategy. The 2nd generation Cayman will be available in two engines. The entry model is able to achieve a 0-100 in 5.6 sec thanks to its 2.7 liters flat-six engine delivering 271hp and 214 lb-ft of torque.The Cayman S will be equipped with a 3.4 liters flat-six engine delivering 321hp and 273 lb-ft of torque allowing it to burn the 0-100 in 4.9 sec. Theses new models have lost around 70kg compared to the first generation Cayman models. This has been mainly achieved thanks to the use of aluminum in the making of the body and a bigger glass on the roof top. I really love the way the rear spoiler is sort of melted into the car. Regarding the commercial there is nothing special to be mentioned it is one of those “car introduction” commercial showing a car cruising on different streets.
