The Panamera contains a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine, good for 550 horsepower. It pumps out 567 lb-ft of torque. The EPA rating of 18 mpg city and 25 mpg highway is decent considering its sports response button offers 20 seconds of extra engine boost in this all-in-one sports/luxury style vehicle.

The back seat has its own sense of luxury with heated seats, climate zones and touchscreen music menu (lockable by the driver).

Choose Between 21 Different Variants of the Porsche 911

2017-04-10T17:40:17+00:00April 10th, 2017|Porsche|

In addition to creating the ultimate sports car, Porsche has modified the 911 in twenty-one different ways to make sure every driver can find one to love.

The Porsche 911 has been regarded as one of the best and most popular sports cars on the market since its release in September of 1964. Now, more than half of a century later, the Porsche 911 remains as a top pick for sports car enthusiasts, offering a number of different models. In fact, on Monday Porsche revealed five new variants to the Porsche 911 making a total of twenty-one different options for the 911 line-up. There are few, if any, sports cars that are more iconic than the Porsche 911, however, there are some people who complain that the appearance of the 911 has barely changed over its long-time evolution.

As previously mentioned, Porsche just added five new variants to the 911 line-up all within the GTS nomenclature. These include the Carrera GTS Coupe, the Carrera 4 GTS Coupe, the Carrera GTS Cabriolet, the Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet, and the Targa 4 GTS.

Each model included in the GTS class is powered by a 450 horsepower variation of Porsche’s new 3.0 liter, twin-turbocharged, flat-six engine. In addition, Porsche’s new additions will be equipped some of the most innovative Porsche technology, and the spirited dynamics and on-track capabilities consistent with every 911.

Driving a Porsche 911 offers a unique kind of experience that has cultivated a following of loyal driving enthusiasts. There is a palpable connection that links driver to vehicle and vehicle to road. However, being the owner of a sports car of this magnitude comes with the responsibility of properly maintaining it. To get the best out of your Porsche 911, it’s important to get it serviced regularly.

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.
