Porsche: Innovation Built within Every Roadster

Created in the 1950s to deviate from the prewar styling of imports, Ferdinand Porsche challenged the automotive industry with his very own line of cars. It resulted into what we know today as the modern age's ultimate sports car, the Porsche vehicle. What started out as an automobile that borrowed parts from the Volkswagen has now evolve into a speedster made of high performing innovations.

Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)

While driving a manual or an automatic car has its advantages, there's one common problem in both kinds of transmissions-shifting gears can be a real (and slow) pain. The creation of the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) eliminates this problem as it features a dual-clutch mechanism that lets the driver shift from one gear to another, at a faster rate. Basically, what this system does is that it preselects the next gear according to driver input. So when the next gear is selected, the transmission can automatically switch from one clutch to another in a matter of milliseconds. Porsche cars are known for its driving prowess. But with the addition of the PDK system, it's more than just a sports car-it's a lean mean speed machine.

Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV Plus)

Driving at high speeds is a must for a Porsche-made car. But with faster accelerations come trickier twists and turns. In order to increase dynamic performance and stability, especially during cornering, Porsche created its Torque Vectoring system. This particular Porsche innovation improves one's handling on steering action by redistributing torque to the rear wheel. In theory, the varying distribution of torque results in better tractions and increased agility. By simply braking the right or left wheel at specific intensities, the Porsche becomes more responsive and keeps its speed during turns.

Porsche 911's Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG)

Installed in the 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S, the Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG) is another advancement that rectifies the Porsche's position as a speed hungry automobile. The Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG) offers higher power output by controlling the gas flow into the engine. Through electronically adjustable guide vanes, this mechanism makes air more to increase combustion and eventually power. This higher turbine speed boosts pressure and eliminates the use of excess-pressure valves.

How Fast Can Your Porsche Go?

As one of the most popular brands in motorsport, Porsche has made a good name through cars built for speed and precision driving. It has won a total of 28,000 victories and has been driven by a variety of successful and world-renowned race car drivers. But with over 195 cars built to race, which one is the fastest out there? Let's take a look at the two models that are neck and neck when it comes to competing for the title of the fastest car Porsche has ever built.

Porsche 993 Carrera RS

A lighter version of the Carrera, this 993 Carrera RS offers ideal speed on the tracks. In fact, it has been one of Porsche's best made cars and, for years, has remained a popular choice for racers around the world. This sports car is built with a 3.8 liter engine at 300 HP. But it's not all about horsepower for this Porsche! This particular speedster has no headlight washers and rear seats to give it its lightweight feature. It is also fitted with non-retractable rear wings, small front flaps, and aluminum wheels to make it lighter than most sports cars in the market. So even with its lower horsepower, its aerodynamic features make the 993 Carrera RS one of the fastest Porsches out there.

Porsche 911 GT2 RS

So how fast can the Porsche 911 GT2 R go? Apparently, it's the fastest Porsche around! With an average of 620 HP, the makers of Porsche combine speed and power into this sports car to make it a beast on the race track and super-fast highways. Not only is it fast, but it is also 150-lb. lighter than the next GT2 model. But if you're thinking that this lighter version means an uncomfortable ride, think again! Unlike the 993 Carrera RS (which had to forego riding comfort), the Porsche 911 GT2 RS's weight was decreased by installing lighter doors and panels and by replacing door handles with door opening straps. This updated design does not only lighten the vehicle but also makes it comfortable even for street driving.
