Apparently 2011 is going to be a pretty happening year for the folks over at Porsche as they have a growth plan in place that is set to have them moving 150,000 cars worldwide by 2014. According to their new business model Porsche will no longer be offering incentives on vehicles but instead will be working on a supply and demand model that concentrates more on inventory control. According to autospies.com we will also see the release of new model variations over the next two years.
A new 911 Speedster with 408 hp, PDK transmission and wide body stance is said to debut in late 2010 and will be limited to 100 cars. Then in early 2011 look for the new GT2 RS. This car is said to be a real hammer with 620 hp, a 0-60 time of 3.4 seconds and options such as a/c and audio delete and carbon fiber fenders. There will also be a minimum of a $20,000 deposit with the regional dealership deciding on which client gets the car. Spring of 2011 is also going to see the release of the new 911 Carrera GTS. This will sport a special nose, center lock wheels, sport exhaust and will be offered in rear wheel drive only.
Then finally there will be the new (and not yet approved for production) 500 hp 918 Spyder Hybrid concept. The car will be at this years Pebble Beach show in California and will require a $50,000.00 non refundable deposit. Like I said, Porsche gets all sorts of new goodies in 2011 which means that the other high end manufacturers are really going to have to step up their game to stay competitive.
