Saloon or sports car? Power or efficiency? Quite simply, there’s no decision to make. That’s because the Panamera and the Panamera 4 blend all these apparent contradictions into one sporty overall concept.

Standard features of the Panamera and the Panamera 4 include Bi-Xenon main headlights, the 18-inch Panamera wheels, the two single-tube tailpipes of the exhaust system and the automatic rear hatch.

Both models are equipped with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) as standard. In the Panamera, it transfers engine power to the rear axle; in the Panamera 4 to all four wheels via the active all-wheel drive of Porsche Traction Management (PTM).

Other standard features of the Panamera and Panamera 4 are cruise control, Tyre Pressure Monitoring (TPM), automatic climate control and the CDR audio system. Options include Porsche Communication Management (PCM), and the BOSE® Surround Sound System or the Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System.

Two things that all open-top Porsche cars have in common are an urge for sporty acceleration and unlimited driving pleasure. The time has come to carry this tradition on into the future. The 911 Carrera S Cabriolet does just that.

That explains what motivates us; so let’s describe what drives the car: the 3.8-litre engine with direct fuel injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus, which produces 400 hp at 7400 rpm. The 911 Carrera S Cabriolet completes the sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 187 mph.

Without question, the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet has remained faithful to [...]

On outright speed, this weekend’s Stadium Cars / Ssangyong International Classic Rally of Otago could turn into a classic New Zealand vs Australia shoot-out.

NZ’s brightest star, Hayden Paddon, will go head-to-head with Aussie legend, Neal Bates, with the rest of the 44-car classic field looking likely to have to follow in their dust.

Willie RutherfordJust for fun, Otago Rally organisers timed competitors over the first quarter mile of one of the stages on Day 2 of the event.

While the times counted for nothing in terms of the rally result, they make interesting reading. Willie Rutherford's Porsche 911 was the quickest 2WD car, while Andrew Hawkeswood was top dog amongst the 4WD competitors.

The 2009 Rally of Otago has received good coverage in the Otago Daily Times, with the 'Drivesouth' publication running stories and photographs in the newspaper, as well as on their website.
