D esign, technical details, performance and price of the new Porsche 918 Spyder sports car fans should have long been known. But only when the doors of the IAA 2013 open will the new star in the Stuttgart super sports car sky officially shine. Then the 887 PS strong and at least 786,026 euros expensive hybrid athlete celebrates its public premiere as the final series version and shows itself to the masses for the first time.

With it, the engineers and developers want to advance into new superlatives: The Porsche 918 Spyder should not only be 'extremely fast' (340 km /h top), but also 'super economical' (3, 3 liters of super per 100 km). The latter property is mainly due to its hybrid drive, which is supposed to propel the all-wheel drive vehicle up to 30 km purely electrically.

Porsche 911 Turbo at the IAA 2013

We are moving forward also with the Porsche 991 series, because the new Porsche 911 will be unveiled as a turbo model for the first time at the IAA 2013. As usual, the new edition with a biturbo engine and all-wheel drive will also appear. In addition, the model gets the rear-wheel steering familiar from the new 911 GT3. Compared to its predecessor, the 3.8-liter boxer in the new is to produce 20 PS (520 PS) more. The S version should even get 30 additional horses (560 hp). The Stuttgart sports car manufacturer specifies the maximum torque as 660 or 700 Nm.

Equipped in this way, the 911 Turbo, according to Porsche, breaks the 100 km /h mark in 3.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 315 km /h /Turbo S: 3.1 seconds, 318 km /h top). The price of the turbo 911 has also already been determined: prospective buyers should have at least 162,055 euros on their account.

911 special model and Panamera -Facelift

As a further delicacy, Porsche has the Porsche 911 Carrera S 50-year anniversary model in its luggage. On the occasion of the 50th year of birth of the series, the manufacturer is offering the 991 series in a special edition limited to exactly 1,963 units. Why 1,963? Because the original 911 was presented at the IAA in 1963. The equipment scope of the special model includes wide-body components, 20-inch models in Fuchs rim design, leather /fabric seats with 'Pepita' checkered patterns from the 1960s, as well as lots of chrome and aluminum trim and, of course, a badge with the respective vehicle number.

In addition to allOf course, one of the innovations should not be forgotten about the facelift of the Porsche Panamera. After its debut in Shanghai, the four-door can also be seen at the IAA 2013 and will be presented there with a streamlined look (especially in the rear area), new engines and a version with an extended wheelbase.
