In this edition of Porsche news update we take a fresh look at the Macan ‑ a compact SUV with all the practicalities a car of this class brings, but one that defies convention with its superb level of performance, technology and luxury.
We explore the Mission E Cross Turismo. Unveiled at Geneva in March, this innovative concept study demonstrates the Porsche vision of sports cars for the future. All‑electric, four‑door, with 600 hp and 800‑volt charging technology ‑ yielding a 250 mile range from 15 minutes of charge, this would be a Porsche for everyday adventures.
The racetrack is calling with the arrival of the new 911 GT3 RS*. Boasting a 4.0‑litre six-cylinder horizontally opposed and naturally aspirated engine packing 520 hp, the new 911 GT3 RS throws down the gauntlet to road-legal race cars.
Also in this edition, we celebrate 70 years since Ferry Porsche created the first Porsche sports car – the legendary 356 No.1. Porsche will be hosting a number of events throughout the year including taking centre stage as featured marque at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

*This model has limited availability.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
