Porsche performance personified once again at Auto Moto 17

PCK showcased an impressive model range during Auto Moto 17 which included the iconic 911 R, the new 718 Cayman, Macan GTS, Cayenne GTS in addition to the second generation of the newly launched Panamera model in Kuwait, the Panamera Turbo.

Known for their ability to step away from conventional methodologies and explore eccentricities, an exclusive virtual reality activation was also set up to allow visitors to explore the redefined concept of courage behind the new Panamera. Porsche enthusiasts and select high-profile influencers were invited to experience this activation by wearing a custom-made oculus and test their depth of and curiosity in a Porsche Panamera setting on top of a skyscraper.

Auto Moto visitors were also able to explore the different features of the new Panamera Turbo, its sharpened exterior design with the new LED headlights with four-point LED daytime running lights, and larger wheels masking its sportier look. Internally, the Panamera has been completely revamped with touch-sensitive surfaces replacing classic hard keys for a user friendly interface similar to a smartphone. Also showcased at the Auto Moto 17, as a part of a limited production series that saw only 991 models manufactured, is the 911 R, a car that highlights Porsche’s racing heritage. A pure sports car in a classical design, it features a 500hp 4-litre naturally aspirated flat engine and six-speed sports transmission.

The new sports coupé, the 718 Cayman model in Night Blue Metallic exteriors stood out among thevehicles on display, attracting most of the Auto Moto visitors. The two-seat mid-engine ignites with the sporty fighting spirit to create a legend of its own. When equipped with the optional, seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) and Sport Chrono Package, the 718 Cayman sprints from zero to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds.

Four-door sports car enthusiasts were given the chance to admire two of Porsche’s GTS models, the Macan GTS and the Cayenne GTS. Their styling characteristics reinforce their muscular and sporty stance where they are readily identified by their independent front apron and their sport exhaust system with black tailpipes. Even if you can’t see them, you will definitely recognize the sonorous engine sound, a throaty roar you can’t escape.
