Porsche Ranks Number 1 in J.D. Power Dependability Study

Porsche continues to meet the highest quality standards in the U.S. according to the results of the most recent Vehicle Dependability Study survey conducted by J.D. Power & Associates. The study ranked Porsche number one. More than 52,000 responses from original owners were evaluated for the study.

In the survey, original owners of 3-year-old cars were surveyed with regard to dependability within the last twelve months. Michael Macht, Chief Executive Officer of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, stated, "We are very pleased to be ranked number one with regard to dependability in the renowned J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study. This ranking is due to our consistent high-quality work and customer orientation, and is a testament to the hard work of Porsche's employees over the last few years. This award shows that our sustainability strategy is paying off. The challenge is not about achieving a high quality standard for the short term, but to assure such quality over a period of many years. The fact that we received this award reflects the satisfaction of Porsche customers with the quality of the used vehicle – and we are very proud of that."

03.02.2010 : Porsche Reveals High-Performance 918 Spyder Concept

Porsche Reveals High-Performance 918 Spyder Concept


 

March 1, 2010 - Today, on the eve of the Geneva Motor Show, Porsche unveiled an ultra-efficient, low-emission, mid-engine super sports car featuring hybrid and electric drive technology. 

The 918 Spyder concept combines high-tech racing features with electric-mobility to offer a fascinating range of qualities. For example, it is planned to provide an emission level of just 70 grams of CO2 per kilometer on fuel consumption of only three liters/100 kilometers (equal to approximately 78 mpg U.S.), which is truly outstanding, even for an ultra-compact city car. This car, however, is intended to offer the performance of a super sports car with acceleration from a standstill to 100 km/h in just under 3.2 seconds, top speed of 320 km/h (198 mph), and a lap time on the Nordschleife of Nürburgring in less than 7:30 minutes, faster than even the Porsche Carrera GT. 

The 918 Spyder is one of three Porsche models with hybrid drive making their world debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. This trio - made up of Porsche's new Cayenne S Hybrid SUV with parallel full-hybrid drive, the 911 GT3 R Hybrid race car with electric drive on the front axle and a flywheel mass battery, and the two-seater high-performance 918 Spyder mid-engined sports car with plug-in hybrid technology - clearly demonstrates not only the great bandwidth of this new drive technology, but also the innovative power of Porsche as a genuine pioneer in hybrid drive. 

The highly-innovative 918 Spyder concept car combines Porsche's Intelligent Performance philosophy with the high-technology from motorsport, with classic but modern design to make a truly convincing statement.

For more on the 918 Spyder, watch the video on PCA.org or visit the Intelligent Performance microsite.
