Porsche The Porsche is a luxury sports car which was produced by Porsche AG of Germany from to In production terms, the was the first Porsche model powered by a water-cooled, front-mounted engine although the similarly configured was designed first.

The engine used Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection, producing 95 horsepower 71 kW in North American trim. This was brought up to horsepower 82 kW in mid with the introduction of a catalytic converter, which reduced the need for power-robbing smog equipment. The four-speed manual was the only transmission available for the initial model. Get notified for new files? We'll send you a quick email when a new Porsche document is added.

The Porsche is a sports car produced by Audi in Neckarsulm on behalf of Porsche AG of Germany from to Although the water-cooledfront-engined gran turismo was designed first, the was the first road-going Porsche to have a front engine rear wheel drive configuration. It was also the first Porsche to be offered with a fully automatic transmission. The made its public debut in November It was loved by enthusiasts for its performance and sales success with just overproduced during a — production run, and an important profits generator for the company.

The closely related introduced in the U. The was originally a joint project of Volkswagen and Porsche created by the Vertriebsgesellschaft VGthe joint sales and marketing company funded by Porsche and VW to market and sell sports cars Ludvigsen: Porsche, Excellence was Expected.

For Porsche, it was to be its entry-level sports car replacing the At the time, Volkswagen lacked a significant internal research and design division for developing sports cars; further, Porsche had been doing the bulk of the company's development work anyway, per a deal that went back to the s.

The oil crisisa series of automobile-related regulatory changes enacted during the s and a change of directors at Volkswagen made the case for a Volkswagen sports car less striking and the project was put on hold. After serious deliberation at VW, the project was scrapped entirely after a decision was made to move forward with the cheaper, more practical, Golf -based Scirocco model instead.

Porsche, which needed a model to replace themade a deal with Volkswagen leadership to buy the design back. The was discontinued before the entered production, which resulted in the reintroduction of the Porsche to the North American market as the E for one year to fill the gap.

The deal specified that the car would be built at the ex- NSU factory in Neckarsulm located north of the Porsche headquarters in Stuttgart, Volkswagen becoming the subcontractor. Hence, Volkswagen employees would do the actual production line work supervised by Porsche's own production specialists and that Porsche would own the design.

It made its debut at a November press launch at the harbour at La Grande Motte, Camargue in the south of France rather than a motor show. The relative cheapness of building the car made it both profitable and fairly easy for Porsche to finance. While criticised for its performance, it nevertheless became one of Porsche's best-selling models.

The original design used an Audi-sourced four-speed manual transmission from a front wheel drive car but now placed and used as a rear transaxle. It was mated to VW's EA 2. The four-speed manual was the only transmission available for the initial model, later this was replaced by a five-speed dog-leg unit. An Audi three-speed automatic was offered starting with the Inthe five-speed transmission was changed to a conventional H-pattern, with reverse now on the right beneath fifth gear.

They also differed visually from the US spec model by not having the US cars' low-speed impact bumpers and the round reflectors plus side-marker lamps on each end of the body. The was sold in Japan at Mizwa Motors dealerships that specialize in North American and European vehicles, with left hand drive for its entire generation.

Sales were helped by the fact that it was in compliance with Japanese Government dimension regulations with regards to its engine displacement and exterior dimensions. A five-speed transmission, available in normally aspirated cars type starting in and standard on all turbos type G31was a dog-leg shift pattern Porsche unit, with first gear below reverse on the left side. This was robust, but expensive due to some internal parts, and was replaced for with a normal H-pattern Audi five-speed on all non-turbo cars.

This lighter duty design was originally not used on the more powerful Turbo. The car was criticized in Car and Driver magazine for this braking arrangement, which was viewed as a step backward from the 's standard four-wheel disc brakes.

However, four-wheel disc brakes, five stud hubs and alloys from the Turbo were available on the base as an "S" package starting with the model year. Also, standard brakes could be optioned on the turbo as a cost-saving measure. The overall styling was created by Dutch designer Harm Lagaaya member of the Porsche styling team, with the folding headlights, sloping bonnet line and grille-less nose giving the car its popular wedge shape.

Porsche made small improvements to the each model year between andbut nothing major was changed on non-turbo cars. Turbo charged variants received many different, non-VW sourced parts, throughout the drive train, and when optioned with the M disc brake package and forged 16" wheels, the car was twice as expensive as a standard model. Its appearance has been credited as the inspiration for the second generation Mazda RX Pasha, writing in Excellence magazine, at the time, described the as "the best handling Porsche in stock form".

While the car was praised for its styling, handling, fuel economy, and reliability, it was harshly written up in the automotive press for its very poor performance, especially with the US spec cars. When the Turbo models came out, Car and Driver magazine proclaimed the car "Fast The and Turbos and the associated special variants are garnering interest in collector circles, and while many still exist, excellent examples of the cars are quite scarce as of today.

The was discontinued inwith Porsche concentrating on producing the faster as its entry-level model. Few of them were made and due to the age of the vehicle they became very rare. In there were less than 10 right hand drive Porsche Turbo S1s reported worldwide. There was also a sport package for the S, available for the ROW and US market for which production data is stated below.

Porsche executives soon recognised the need for a higher-performance version of the that could take advantage of the models excellent balance and bridge the gap between the standard and the Having already found the benefits of turbochargers on several race cars and the TurboPorsche chose to use this technology for theeventually introducing the Turbo in On release the Turbo was met with high praise from the automotive community and journalists alike.

It was celebrated for its supercar-like performance and impeccable handling, with build quality, general attention to proportion and more purposeful aesthetics garnering universal approval. In their comparison against the Aston Martin V8, PorschePorsche 3. To power the Turbo, Porsche heavily revised the VW EA 2. Porsche engineers designed and equipped it with a revised crankcase, connecting rods, cylinder-head gasket, crankshaft and an all new aluminium-silicon alloy cylinder head.

With the use of dished combustion chambers and specially shaped pistons the compression ratio was reduced to 7. In order to aid cooling, as well as to distinguish it from the standardPorsche added a NACA duct in the hood, this helped heat escape when stationary and caused hot air to be drawn out of the engine compartment due to low pressure induced by the louvred alloy engine under-tray when on the move.

In addition to the NACA duct, four slotted air vents were installed in the badge panel, with open ducts added to either side the front valance so to aid cooling of the front brakes. Power was transferred from the clutch plate to the gearbox through a larger diameter torque tube. Forged inch flat wheels of the style used on the were optional, but fitment specification was that of the which the shared wheel offsets with.

A rubber duck-tail spoiler was fitted to the rear hatch, reducing the already low drag coefficient from. Internally, Porsche called the Turbo the "", much like the Carrera Turbo which had been known as "Type ". Although right hand drive specific parts were denoted by the prefix "" both left hand drive and right hand drive cars are referred to as "", this designation remains in common use by Porsche enthusiasts today. Allowing the engine to idle and turbo to cool before shutdown helps prevent turbo seal and component failure and as such greatly extends the turbo's lifespan.

For the model year Porsche released a revised Turbo Series 2 although badging still read " turbo". In North America, the Turbo arrived in late for the model year. It was saddled with extra weight compared to Euro-spec cars, due to the federally mandated large bumpers and other safety equipment, and less power due to stringent emissions controls. The Turbo also saw success in Motorsport, mainly in rally guise, preceding the introduction of the Carrera GT.

Between and Jürgen Barth and Roland Kussmaul headed a project to develop a competition specification Turbo. The competition cars were based on prototype s purchased from the factory by the Porsche head of motorsport Peter Falk Ingenieurmodifications included but were not limited to a wider track, Rallye arches and auxiliary light pods. The car first competed in the Monte Carlo Rally and with Barth and his co-driver Kussmaul at the helm, the car finished 4th in the GT4 class, despite being de-specced due to homologation requirements.

The season continued with the same car and drivers taking part in the famous 19,KM Round Australia Trial. Impressively the car won its class, completing the trial in just 13 hours and 9 minutes. The season saw the Turbo make history when it carried a JVC camera inside the cabin, capturing the first ever in car footage of the famous Monte Carlo Rally. This was its final season, retiring to make way for the intercooled Carrera GT.

InPorsche unveiled a concept version of the at the Frankfurt Auto show wearing Carrera badges. One year later, inPorsche released the Carrera GT, making clear their intention to enter the in competition. By adding an intercooler and increasing compression to 8. In Porsche released the limited production Carrera GTS. Visually, the Carrera GT differed from the standard Turbo in that it had polyurethane plastic front and rear flared guards, a polyurethane plastic front spoiler, a top mounted air scoop for the intercooler, a much larger rubber rear spoiler and a flush mounted front windscreen.

It featured Pirelli P6 tires as standard, and Pirelli P7 tires were available as an option along with a limited slip differential. This more aggressive styling was later used for as motivation for the The later Carrera GTS differed stylistically from the GT with fixed headlamps under Perspex covers instead of the GT's pop up units.

Also building a GTR rally race car, and two other GTRs Miller and BF Goodrich. Lastly, inPorsche entered one of two specially built Carrera GTPs the "GTP Le Mans" in which Porsche Motorsports introduced a new prototype highly modified 2. This last variant managed a seventh place overall finish and spent the least time out of any other car in the pits. This new 2. Production of the Turbo ceased in except for the Italian market which lasted until This was due to the restrictions on engines larger than two liters, putting the forthcoming 2.

InVW decided to stop manufacturing the engine blocks used in the 2. The was considerably cheaper than its stablemate, and dropping the model left Porsche without an affordable entry-level option. This was achieved using different pistons which raised the S' compression ratio from 9. This made the S slightly faster than the base due to its lighter weight [23] and more aerodynamic body.

The model also gained three point safety belts in the rear seats. With unfavourable exchange rates in the late s, Porsche decided to focus its efforts on its more upmarket models, dropping the S for and the base later that same year. The S SE US and "Le Mans" ROW were Club Sport editions aimed at autocross US term for autotests to UK readers and club racers. The final S RHD 'run-out' versions in for the UK just 37 white and 37 black vehicles had "Le Mans" logos with stripes on their flanks.

Officially known at Porsche as the "Sportliches Sondermodell" loosely translates as Sporting Special Model their options package list M was more complete than the Special Edition M for the US. Only Club Sport option cars were built in total. Inside, all the cars featured cloth-upholstered "Turbo" sports seats, with the cloth door panels also colour-coded. They also had 'Sport' anti-roll bars with diameters of On ROW cars there was no Le Mans logo, nor striping and the phone dial wheels in white or black matching color had outer rims of respectively ochre or turquoise.
