How to Make the Most out of your Porsche 911

2017-03-08T10:43:38+00:00March 8th, 2017|Porsche|

The Porsche 911 is one of the most iconic sports cars on the market, so in order to get the most out of your driving experience it helps to know how and when to push this car to the limits.

There is much more to driving a sports car than the stylish appearance. Sports car enthusiasts know that the kind of driving experience a sports car delivers is about commanding the power of the engine and gripping the road with intensity. If there’s one car that epitomizes the sports car experience in speed and dynamic ability, it’s the Porsche 911. With a car built like the Porsche 911, the driver barely has to put forth any effort to feel the engine merging tires to road. However, to get the full effect of this sports car, it’s important to know the full potential of the vehicle and how/when to push its limitations.

Make Driving a Hobby

The best way to maximize the potential driving experience of any sports car is to drive it in different terrain, and to drive it often. If the Porsche 911 is your first sports car, the thought of pushing it to the limits might sound a little dangerous, or overwhelming. To calm your nerves, Porsche offers driving schools and training academies all over the world. These academies take amateur drivers and transform them into sports car experts in the span of just a few days.

Also, consider joining a track club. Track clubs do not come cheap, but they will provide a range of terrains that will show you how your Porsche handles the extremes without the concern of traffic or getting a ticket. Don’t be afraid to drive the 911 in the snow. Contrary to what people might think, these vehicles are dynamos on the ice and in the snow. The key is to practice and learn how to properly drive them in such situations.

Good Fuel, Upgrades, and Timely Maintenance

Feed your Porsche premium fuel. Sports cars like the 911 utilize high-performance engines designed to compress fuel at higher rate, enabling faster acceleration. Premium gas can be compressed at a higher rate than regular gas without igniting, therefore, it’s what this engine needs to perform at its best.

Consider upgrading your Porsche. It’s no secret that the Porsche 911 is a fairly expensive vehicle, so if you’re already spending a hefty sum, it only makes sense that you should customize it to better suit you. Maybe spring for the sport exhaust, fancier wheels, or leather interior. Sports cars aren’t all about style, but it’s definitely an added bonus.

Finally, make sure to keep up on routine maintenance checks for your Porsche 911. Our team of brand-trained experts at Porsche Santa Barbara are happy to help you keep your vehicle operating at maximum potential. We offer our services and expertise to our customers so they always have the resources and the ‘know-how’ to treat their vehicle right. Visit our website to conveniently set-up maintenance appointments that suit your schedule, or come to the dealership to peruse our wide selection of premium Porsche vehicles.

Porsche Ranks Highest in J.D. Power’s 2016 APEAL Study for 12th Consecutive Year

2017-02-22T10:30:22+00:00February 22nd, 2017|Award, News, Porsche, Santa Barbara Auto Group|

Porsche Santa Barbara applauds Porsche’s victory and the brand’s ability to design vehicles that appeal to nearly every driver.

One of the many vehicle studies conducted by J.D. Power is the APEAL study, which stands for Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout. The intent of this study is to determine what features customers value most by examining what consumers like about their vehicle ninety days after purchasing. In fact, the study has been nicknamed the “Things gone right” study.

APEAL focuses on eight categories of vehicle performance and design: engine/transmission; ride, handling and braking; comfort/convenience; seats; cockpit/instrument panel; heating, ventilation and cooling; sound system; and styling/exterior. In other words, the study is basically an overall evaluation of the vehicle’s reliability and likeability. Porsche ranking highest in overall appeal is exciting news for Porsche Santa Barbara. Though we’ve never had any doubts about the quality of Porsche’s designs, the recognition affirms our reputation for delivering superior luxury vehicles.

Porsche Delivers Top Quality in Several Categories

J.D. Power categorizes the vehicles in the APEAL study by vehicle type. Porsche won in three categories including: Compact Premium SUV for the Porsche Macan; Midsize Premium Sporty Car for the Porsche 911; and Compact Premium Sporty Car for the Porsche Boxster.

The Porsche Macan has been a customer favorite since it was introduced. J.D. Power awarded the 2016 Macan five-stars in nearly every one of the fourteen categories that are analyzed when compiling a performance and design review. By replacing much of the steel parts that were used in previous models with aluminum, the 2016 Porsche Macan cuts significant weight, adding to the overall efficiency. With one of the best traction control systems on the market, the Macan offers a smooth and enjoyable ride.

The Porsche 911 also holds a reputation for developing a loyal following of enthusiasts. Though this sports car is a bit on the pricey side, its review speaks for itself. Receiving five-stars in all but one of the fourteen categories assessed, the 2016 Porsche 911 truly embodies the heart and soul of the company. High-performing, stylish, comfortable, luxurious, and technologically advanced? What more can a driver ask for?

The Porsche Boxster has been considered Porsche’s “entry-level” sports car. With easy maneuverability and 2.7L 6-cylinder engine, the Boxster is perfect for drivers who want the sport car experience without the desire to hit the race track. It comes with Porsche’s latest safety features and offers one of the most stylish looks in the sport car category.

The kind of quality displayed in these vehicles is not out of the ordinary for Porsche. These are not isolated incidences of luck. Porsche has a reputation for combining style, performance, luxury, and reliability that is unmatched, with twelve consecutive years of awards to prove it. So visit Porsche Santa Barbara where our friendly and knowledgeable sales staff will help you find the Porsche you’re looking for.

Porsche Santa Barbara is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 911 this year.  For five decades, the Porsche 911 has been the heart of the Porsche brand.  Few other automobiles in the world can look back on such a long tradition and with such genuine continuity as the Porsche 911.  In fact, it has been inspiring car enthusiasts the world over since its debut as the Type 901 at the IIAA International Auto Show in 1963.

Leading Its Class

Today, the Porsche 911 is considered the quintessential sports car, the benchmark for all others.  The 911 is also the central point of reference for all other Porsche series.  From the Cayenne to the Panamera, every Porsche is the most sporting automobile in its category, and each one carries a piece of the 911 philosophy.

More than 820,000 Porsche 911s have been built, making it one of the most successful sports cars in the world.  For each of its seven generations the engineers in Zuffenhausen and Weissach have reinvented it, time and time again, demonstrating to the world the innovative power of the Porsche brand.

At Porsche Santa Barbara, we proudly affirm that the 911 reconciles apparent contradictions such as sportiness and everyday practicality, exclusivity and social acceptance, and design and functionality like no other vehicle.  It is no wonder that each generation has written its own unique success story.  Ferry Porsche best described its unique qualities: “The 911 is the only car you could drive on an African safari or at Le Mans, to the theater or through New York City traffic.”

Advanced Technology

In addition to its classic yet unique lines, the Porsche 911 has always been distinguished by its advanced technology.  Many of the ideas and technologies that made their debut in the Porsche 911 were conceived on the race track.  The 911 was committed to the performance principle from the start, and motor racing is its most important test lab.

From the very beginning it has been at home on circuits all over the world.  The Porsche 911 has earned a reputation as a versatile and dependable winner.  Indeed, a good two thirds of Porsche’s 30,000 race victories to date were notched up by the 911.

At Porsche Santa Barbara, the 50th anniversary of this iconic sports car is the central theme of 2013.  Across the word, Porsche will be hosting unique events in honor of the anniversary, including an appearance of an authentic 1967 model 911 at Pebble Beach, CA.

California Porsche fans and 911 enthusiasts can learn more about exciting events, offers, and available inventory of this flagship vehicle at Porsche Santa Barbara.
