In the Porsche booth, two new additions to the 911 model range in this autumn, 911 Turbo Cabriolet and 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet will be displayed for the first time in Japan. In addition, in total five new models will be introduced from the 911 model range, including the 911 Anniversary Edition with various special equipment for the commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the 911 model, 911 GT3 Cup Car, a racing car for Porsche Carrera Cup Japan, a pinnacle of the one-make racing, and 911 GT3, which is Porsche's best pure sports model. From the third model range of Porsche, Cayenne, which was introduced last year, the top model Cayenne Turbo with an overwhelming motoring performance that will completely overturn the conventional image of SUV cars, and Porsche's first car mounting V6 engine, Cayenne, will be displayed.

Highlights of the Vehicle on Exhibition
Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet

The fastest cabriolet in the 911 model range, 911 Turbo Cabriolet develops maximum output of 309 kW (420 bhp) and has exactly the same top speed as its coupe counterpart of 305 km/h, being an ultimate cabriolet. The 911 Cabriolet has been resurrected for the first time in 14 years, since the 911 Turbo Cabriolet, the cabriolet model of 930-type 911 Turbo, which was the world's first mass-production turbo model being manufactured between 1987 and 1989.
Compared with the 300 bhp former model built from 1987 - 1989, the new Cabriolet develops maximum output of 420 bhp (309 kW). Top speed is 305 km/h, the same as its coupe model, while acceleration from 0 - 100 km/h is 4.3 seconds, only 1/10th of a second "slower" than the coupe. A further significant improvement over the former model code-named 930 within the Company is the roof mechanism with its particular ease of operation, the roof not only opening and closing fully automatically at a standstill, but also at a road speed of up to 50 km/h.

Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet

911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet is an luxury model in which the highly acclaimed performance of the coupe model was left intact, while you can enjoy the sound of the 3.6-litre naturally aspirated flat six engine displacing 235 kW (320 bhp). Appealing for a strength with its rear wing protruding to left and right, the feature similar to that of the 911 Turbo Cabriolet, and having sophisticated appearance, this cabriolet is a new age open-air sports car proposing a different taste of driving from other models.
The difference from its coupe counterpart is the reinforcements in the sidesill area. Additional joint plates and shaft reinforcements behind the B-pillar are added in 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet. Such reinforcements for body shell are also added to 911 Turbo Cabriolet. Thus, both models enjoy the highest body rigidity in 911 cabriolet models.

Porsche Carrera GT

Carrera GT was developed based on the pure racing technology by installing the 5.7-litre V10 engine developed by the engineers at Porsche R&D Centre in Weissach, Germany, and adopting the monocoque frame and sub-frame made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP), while being equipped with the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) as well as the Porsche Ceramic Composite Clutch (PCCC). The engine with the maximum output of 450 kW (612 bhp) and the maximum torque of 590 Nm produces an overwhelming performance, by reaching to the top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph), and the acceleration from 0 to 200 km/h takes merely 9.9 seconds.

Porsche 911 Anniversary Edition

911 Anniversary Edition is a limited edition with which only 1,963 units are to be sold worldwide in a commemoration of the 40th anniversary for the 911, since its debut at Frankfurt Motor Show in 1963. This model comes with GT silver metallic body colour, which was exclusive for Carrera GT. It features a front bumper for 911 Carrera 4S with the side air-intake same as the body colour; 18-inch shot-blasted polished Carrera wheels; and a plated exhaust tailpipe.
Under the engine hood, which proudly displays the aluminium 911 logo, the engine developing the maximum output of 254 kW (345 bhp) is mounted. This model produces a high performance only next to 911 GT3, in the naturally aspirated engine models, with acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h taking only 4.9 seconds and the top speed records 290 km/h.
As for interior, dark grey natural leather seat, centre console and the handle same as the body colour, as well as the "40 Jahre 911" plaque shining in front of the handle emphasises exclusiveness for the interior.

Porsche Cayenne

Cayenne, which mounts newly developed V6 engine, is equipped with the Porsche Traction Management (PTM), and it is an ultimate SUV combining outstanding driving dynamics, safety and off-road performance, as it has been developed under the same concept as Cayenne Turbo and Cayenne S.
Porsche's first V6 engine produces maximum output of 184 kW (250 bhp) from the 3.2-litre displacement, and has the characteristic of a typical Porsche engine with the maximum torque of 310 Nm achieved in a wide range between 2,500 rpm and 5,500 rpm. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes 9.1 seconds, and the top speed is 214 km/h. In addition to the six-speed Tiptronic S, the six-speed manual transmission with the Porsche Drive Off Assistant (PDOA) is also available for Cayenne.

Porsche Cayenne Turbo

The Cayenne Turbo is a sports utility vehicle in the genuine sense of the word with absolutely outstanding power and performance, supreme comfort and a wide range of innovations in technology both for fast motoring on the road and for the toughest offroad requirements. Displacing 4.5 litres, the V8 biturbo power unit complete with intercooler develops a staggering 331 kW (450 bhp) at 6000 rpm. Maximum torque of 620 Newtonmetres or 457 lb-ft is maintained consistently between 2250 and 4750 rpm, top speed is 266 km/h. Equipped as standard with Porsche's six-speed Tiptronic transmission, the Cayenne Turbo accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds. And it almost goes without saying, finally, that the Cayenne Turbo has outstanding hill-climbing qualities also in rough terrain, air suspension featured as standard giving the Cayenne Turbo 273 millimetres ground clearance in the special offroad mode and the ability to cross rivers and other bodies of water down to a depth of 555 millimetres.

Porsche Boxster

The basic model in the Boxster model range, Boxster adopts the same VarioCam technology as Boxster S with 3.2-litre engine, thus contributing to the improvement of the output. Maximum output reaches up to 168 kW (228 bhp), while the improvement of fuel consumption and the reduction in harmful exhaust gas being produced in the combustion process have been achieved. As with the Boxster S, acceleration and pulling forces are enhanced particularly in the low engine speed range, the Boxster completing the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.4 seconds (0.2 seconds faster than before). Top speed with the five-speed manual gearbox featured as standard is 253 km/h or 157 mph. Remote control for opening not only the car, but also the front and rear bootlids are new standard features.

Porsche 911 GT3

New 911 GT3 is given more speed and power with the top class sports car, 911 Carrera as its basis, thus driving on a racing circuit without any modifications is possible. The new 911 GT3 develops a significant 15 kW (21 bhp) more than its predecessor: maximum output is 280 kW (381 bhp) and the top speed is 306 km/h. It accelerates from the start to 200 km/h, and it takes only 19.7 seconds to a complete standstill. With the improvement in motoring performance, brake system has also been modified: front brake was replaced by 6-piston monoblock caliper from 4-piston, and the diameter of the brake disc was extended by 20 mm to 350 mm.

Porsche 911 GT Cup Car

The 2003 model of 911 GT3 Cup Car is a racing vehicle introduced to this year's Carrera Cup Japan, the pinnacle of the popular clubman's one-make racing. Comparing to its predecessor, the 2001 model, the displacement remains the same while the output was increased by 20 bhp (390 bhp/7,300 rpm) and torque by 20 Nm (390 Nm/6,300 rpm). As for the brakes, the front now has 6 pistons and the rear with 4 pistons, enhancing braking ability in the same level or more than the increase in its motoring power, by following the tradition of Porsche.
Five races are planned nationwide for the Carrera Cup Japan in 2004, with the support races for All Japan GT Car Championship as the main, in the same way as this year.
