Porsche @ Frankfurt: 2010 911 Sport Classic, 2010 911 Turbo, 911 GT3 RS, 2010 911 GT3 Cup

- 2010 Porsche 911 Sport Classic: This is yet another speical edition Porsche 911. However, Porshce is adament that this is the best special edition yet - a Sport Classic. The 911 Sport Classic pays a tribute to the beloved 1973 Carrera RS 2.7 with unique double-bubble roof, special Fuchs-style 19-inch wheels designed that echo the last 911SC, and a classic “ducktail” style spoiler. The 911 Sport Classic also spots more power out the exhaust system, so now this 911's 3.8L flat-6 packs 408 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque; allowing it to crack 60 mph within 4.6 seconds, and to top-out at 187 mph. It is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and also features Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes, PASM sports suspension. Only 250 units will be made, with a price tag of 169,300 euros.

- 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo: Although very little differences has been made to the exterior and interior, but this 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo is a nearly a new car beneath compared to last year. A new engine, a new transmission, and a new setup to the Turbo's all-wheel-drive system. The 911 Turbo finally gets a direct-injection 3.8L flat-6 engine; with added two varuable turbocharges, it devilers 500 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. So 60 mph is finished in 3.4 seconds, and top speed is over 200 mph. The new transmission is Porsche's latest twin-clutch PDK 7-speed transmission. Porsche also tweaked the all-wheel-drive system for a new setup, that slipts the torque 40% to the front, and 60% to the rear, allowing the Turbo to go sideways. 911 Turbo gets improved fuel-economy by 18%, to make it 25 mpg combined. Prices start $132,800 and $143,800 respectively, with an on-sale date of November 2009 in Germany and January 2010 world-wide.

- 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS: The new 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is here, and as always, it packs out more power, less weight, track-ready suspension and steering, and an increased asking-price from the standard 2010 Porsche 911 GT3. The main priority of the GT3 RS is to deliver the ultimate driving machine, with no "civilization" compromises. So, the GT3 RS comes with a new wider front and rear tracks as well as additional wheel arch covers increase the span across the nose. The larger and racy-like carbon-fiber rear-spoiler gives out even better downfroce from the GT3. Power upgrades come from a naturally-aspirated direct-injection 3.8L flat-6, that makes 450 hp, 20 hp more than the standard GT3. Launch to 60 mph takes less than 4 seconds, and top speed 195 mph. Of course, the Porshce engineers get comfortable around the GT3 RS, since they don't have to care about road-comfort, and focus more on track-balance. So Porshce managements like Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system and the active engine mounts (Porsche Active Drivetrain Mounts - PADM) that can change their stiffness and damping effect to resist the movement of the drivetrain in the bodyshell are fitted to the GT3 RS as standard equipment. The new Porsche 911 GT3 RS is expected to go on sale in most European countries at the end of the year, with a price tag of $132,800, or exactly the same price as the 911 Turbo.

- 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup: In essence, this 911 GT3 Cup is basically the race-car version of the 911 GT3 RS, which is also the racy-like 911. Unlike its other siblings, the GT3 Cup is not road-legal, and in fact, is meant to be shown for GT3-series teams. Porsche says that it is stronger, wider and faster than its predecessors. Like the GT3 RS, this GT3 Cup is 1.73-inch wider than the standard 911, and also features wider front wheel arches, and a racing carbon-fiber rear-spoiler. GT3 teams will also be happy, as the new GT3 Cup shares the same 3.8L direct-injection flat-6 engine from GT3 RS. Output is the same, at 450 hp at 8,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a sequential 6-speed manual transmission. The racing teams have to be quick when purchasing this GT3 Cup, as Porsche will be building limited production of it, and a price tag of at 149,850 Euros. So next season GT3 race is going to be more exciting, as this Porsche 911 GT3 Cup will be rivaling the Audi R8 LMS.
