Porsche Is Making The Most Money for Volkswagen Group

It seems that popular Porsche is certainly pulling its weight for parent company Volkswagen, bringing in more money than VW offerings. Quick history: Industry giant Volkswagen acquired Porsche back in 2012 following a battle during which both German companies were attempting to purchase the other.

At least only a portion of the structure was taken down, it could have been a rather hectic insurance claim if an entire carwash needed replaced along with an exotic sports car.

Porsche Says Enough Horsepower Wars—500 Is Ample

It seems that Porsche is calling for an end to the never-ending horsepower war, stating that continuous increases are unsustainable in the interest of daily driver comforts. Does that mean that companies should save their main muscle flexing for the track? Porsche GT-car leader Andreas Preuninger shared in an interview that “I’m not a believer in this horsepower monster, up, up, up, more, more, more. For my personal tastes, around 500 horsepower is enough, because 700-800 horsepower calls for bigger brakes, sturdier suspension. It gets heavier and heavier logically.” Preuninger shared that the future of Porsche sporting cars will focus … Continue reading

New Porsche Panamera Edition Is Not Obvious

Porsche is attempting to distinguish the popular Panamera model with a special edition version simply called the ‘Edition’. The Porsche Panamera Edition is nearly impossible to distinguish from her siblings, utilizing the very same base components from the 310-horsepower versions, and very little exterior cues to give her away.

There will be two Edition offerings to choose from, both with special luxury features to set them apart from their siblings.  Aside from … Continue reading
