Top accolades for Porsche from Germany, Australia, UK and USA

The sports cars of Porsche AG, Stuttgart, are as popular and highly regarded as ever, not just in Beverly Hills but all over the world.

Beverly Hills Porsche - 2011 Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet
In Germany, three Porsche sports cars top the list of the models with the best value retention, as Deutsche Automobil Treuhand (DAT) has now revealed in a projection. According to its findings the Porsche 911 holds its value better than any other model on the German market, followed by the Boxster and the Cayman. Other-make cars only start to appear from fourth place down.

In Australia, a jury comprising eleven motor journalists from the “Sydney Morning Herald”, “The Age” and “drive.com.au” voted the Porsche Boxster the best convertible and chose it as winner of the “Drive Car of the Year Award”. The mid-engine sports car had already won this distinction in the previous year and once again impressed the testers mainly thanks to its “sensational performance when cornering and braking, its characteristic six-cylinder engine and the astonishingly practical and brilliant Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK)”.

EVO "Car of the Year 2010" - Porsche 911 GT3 RS
In the UK, the car magazine EVO voted the Porsche 911 GT3 RS “Car of the Year 2010”, stealing the thunder from a whole host of high-calibre competitors with its authentic handling. It even beat the 911 GT2 RS, which came in third, making Porsche the only brand to appear twice in EVO’s top ten favourites list. And car tester Richard Hammond from the popular UK TV programme “Top Gear” also selected the 911 GT2 RS as his personal “Car of the Year”. “Top Gear” presented another award to Porsche Development Director Wolfgang Dürheimer, whom it named “Man of the Year” in recognition of the energy-efficient but supercar-worthy concept of the Porsche 918 Spyder.

Beverly Hills Porsche - 2011 Porsche Boxster Spyder

In the USA, the renowned “Car and Driver Magazine” included the Boxster and the Cayman in its list of the ten best vehicles on sale in the United States. This was already the tenth occasion in twelve years that one of Porsche’s mid-engine sports cars had scooped this award. Both “are prime examples of classic Porsche values”, commended the magazine. The Boxster and the Cayman also just received the eighth win in the prestigious Automobile Magazine All-Star award.

Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, The legendary designer of the Porsche 911 turns 75

Family Dynasty: Ferry Porsche (L) and F.A.Porsche (R) Under Portrait of Ferdinand Porsche


The entire staff at Beverly Hills Porsche wish Prof. F.A. Porsche a very happy 75th birthday!

Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, Honorary Chair of the Supervisory Board of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, celebrated his 75th birthday on 11 December 2010. As a designer of true genius, F.A. Porsche was the creator of such legendary automobiles as the 904 Carrera GTS, or the Porsche 911. After stepping down from the management of Porsche KG, in 1972 he founded the “Porsche Design“ Studio, and achieved worldwide fame and recognition as an independent product designer.


Ferdinand Alexander Porsche was born on 11 December 1935 in Stuttgart, the eldest son of Dorothea and Ferry Porsche. As a child his world was already being influenced by automobiles, with him spending a lot of time in the design offices and development workshops of his grandfather Ferdinand Porsche. In 1943 the family, together with the company of Porsche, relocated to Austria, where he went to school in Zell am See. After returning to Stuttgart in 1950, he passed the final school examination, the “Abitur”, at the Waldorf School, and registered at the College of Design in Ulm. In 1958 F.A. Porsche joined the design department of what was at that time Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche KG.

His talent for design very soon became apparent when, with the Type 754 “T7“, he formally presented to the world the direction which was to be followed in the succession to the 356 Series. In 1962 he took charge of the management of the Porsche Design Studio, and one year later took the world by storm with the Porsche 901 (also referred to as the 911). As well as passenger cars, F.A. Porsche was also deeply involved in the design of the racing cars of the 1960’s. Among his most famous designs were the Formula One Type 804 racer, or the Porsche 904 Carrera GTS, which motoring fans have always regarded as one of the finest and most beautiful racing vehicles ever made.

With the conversion of Porsche KG into a share company in 1971/72, F.A. Porsche and all the other family members stepped aside from the operational business of the company. As a shareholder and member of the Supervisory Board, he oversaw the development of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG for many years, and from 1990 to 1993 he served as the Chair of the Supervisory Board. In 2005 he passed the mantle of responsibility as a Porsche AG Supervisory Board member to his son Oliver, and took on the position of Honorary Chair of the Board.

Ferdinand Alexander Porsche founded the “Porsche Design Studio“ in Stuttgart in 1972, the headquarters being relocated to Zell am See in Austria in 1974. Over the decades which followed he designed a wide range of classic men’s accessories, such as watches, spectacles, and writing implements, which achieved worldwide fame under the brand name “Porsche Design“. In parallel with this, he and his team, using the trademark “Design by F.A. Porsche“, created a large number of industrial products, domestic appliances, and consumer goods for internationally famous clients. Ferdinand Alexander Porsche has been acclaimed for his work as a designer by the bestowing of many honours and awards.

In autumn 2003 F.A. Porsche and the other shareholders of “Porsche Design“, together with Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, founded the Porsche Lizenz- und Handelsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG (PLH, Porsche Licence and Trading Company). The aim of this company is to make best use of the potential of the name Porsche in sectors which go beyond the automobile. The focus here is on the trademark “Porsche Design“, which in recent years has developed to become one of the world’s leading brand names in luxury articles, with its own marketing network.

Beverly Hills Porsche's Blog-master and part time Meteorologist just uncovered some exciting news! The exclusive Los Angeles enclave know as Beverly Hills will be experiencing a winter snow fall like no other.

Brenton Garen of Beverly Hills Courier reports:

"Beverly Hills has been alerted to brace for a blizzard on the evening of Thursday, Dec. 9, with forecasters saying there is a "100 percent" chance of snow.  Our city, which averages a 70 degree high temperature, a 73 percent chance of sunshine and a chilly low temperature of 52 degrees in early December, has been guaranteed a blizzard on the three blocks of famed shopping street Rodeo Drive and also on Brighton Way."


The brainchild of the Rodeo Drive Committee, SNOW 90210 is based on the highly successful Fashion’s Night Out celebration that occurred in September where the street and city’s retailers offered Ferris Wheel rides with purchases, in-store events and a carnival atmosphere.

Over 40 stores and boutiques along Rodeo Drive including Porsche Design will be open for in-store holiday events including huge shopping incentives and wine and champagne toasts. Stores will be open until 9 p.m so that you can check off your holiday shopping list while strolling through the snow. And if you make a qualifying purchase, you’ll be able to take a horse and carriage ride along Rodeo Drive!

Gourmet food trucks will line the street to satisfy your hunger and quench your thirst. Snow 90210 Rodeo will take place from 6 pm to 9 pm. This is sure to be a memorable night for residents and visitors of Beverly Hills.

Porsche Cayenne, Motor Trend's 2011 Sport Utility Of The Year

Porsche Cayenne S 400 BHP 4.8L V8 0-60 in 5.6 Seconds

Beverly Hills Porsche customers started voting for their favorite SUV last month when the Cayenne S and Cayenne Turbo went on sale. Both models have been selling as fast as Porsche can deliver them. Last week the Cayenne V6 arrived and near the end of November the Cayenne Hybrid drive will go on sale. For those customers still waiting for a good reason to place their orders...



Motor Trend announced today that the Porsche Cayenne SUV is the winner of its coveted 2011 Sport/Utility of the Year. When Porsche's Cayenne first vied for the award in December 2003, the writers at Motor Trend said that they found its many sporting charms resistible. But the technical enhancements made between then and now are compelling.

The initial lineup of two engines has expanded to five powertrains. The V-6s include a free-breathing, 300-horsepower, 3.6-liter that can be paired with a six-speed manual or Tiptronic transmission and a supercharged 3.0-liter gas-electric hybrid that cranks out a combined 380 horsepower and earns big efficiency points by sipping fuel at the rate of 21 mpg city/25 highway. All engines feature direct injection; all automatics get eight ratios; and an auto-stop feature on all models turns the engine off when stopped to improve real-world efficiency, if not EPA figures. Two 4.8-liter V-8s round out the roster, making 400 and – in twin-turbo trim – 500 horsepower.

The Motor Trend SUV of the year for 2011 is now available at Beverly Hills Porsche. Our showroom is located in the heart of Beverly Hills at 8425 Wilshire Blvd.

Beverly Hills' Sweet Smell Of Success Now For Sale, 9021-Eau

The City of Beverly Hills has partnered with JT Brands to create a line of perfumes that will be marketed as the official scents of Beverly Hills. The perfumes will retail in department stores for $120 each, starting in January.

Geoffrey Thompson, managing director of JT Brands, said he thinks Beverly Hills is a natural brand. "Very few cities could do this," he said. "People have reverence for Beverly Hills. It captures the imagination of visitors from overseas."

In an official press release now turned LA Times story the idea came to the city's leaders a while ago.

The project has been two years in the making, delayed slightly by the recession, which also caused the retail prices to be lowered somewhat, Thompson said.

The company went to pains to ensure the scents are authentically Beverly Hills. Perfumiers used flowers grown in the city, including California species of wild rose, sweet pea, honeysuckle, peony and red cedar.

The three fragrances are designed to "evoke what life is like for the Beverly Hills woman," Thompson said. "Must Have" will be for the spontaneous, energetic day in the sunshine, "Rodeo" for the red-carpet evening, and "Iconic" for the sexy, soft, playfulness of the night.

One luxuriously successful scent the city may have overlooked is New Porsche Interior. However we've heard that the city is exploring launching a men's cologne later next year so there is still hope. Rita Rudner would be proud!

If you just can't wait for the bottled version, we would like to suggest a visit to the Beverly Hills Porsche showroom at 8425 Wilshire Blvd.

Top Gear Guys in NYC Play Rough

It's almost painful to watch the boys of BBC's Top Gear trying to maneuver a brand new Porsche GT3 RS, Mercedes SLS AMG and Ferrari 458 Italia through a construction zone in New York City.



James May squeezes into the Ferrari followed by Jeremy Clarkson in the Mersedes SLS. Both men attempt to guide their super cars off a driveway onto a NYC road devoid of the first three inches of asphalt. Richard "The Hamster" Hammond, the lightest man in the lightest car, pilots his Porsche GT3 RS with the front axle lift engaged. It still isn't enough to keep the Porsche from scraping the lower lip across the rough road-base. Cringe-fest for any exotic car fan. Thanks BBC for the goosebumps!

Porsche Driving in the Snow : Never Hibernate














Porsche is offering Canadian drivers a unique driving experience.

There are few things as exhilarating as driving a Porsche. So why would you want to hide it away for the winter? Whether you drive a Cayenne, Panamera, Boxster, Cayman or 911, every Porsche is engineered, raced and tested in the most extreme conditions to deliver power, performance and confidence all year round. With a little preparation, your Porsche can be an uncommonly gratifying way to experience winter.

On a winter holiday, people usually take to the trails on two skis. But why not try four wheels for a change? In a Porsche, of course. You can choose the Precision course as an introduction to the Ice training category – right here in Canada. First of all, it teaches you the basics of driving in treacherous conditions. This will prepare you specifically for the situation in winter.

In the theory lessons, you learn the basics of driving safety and driving dynamics. The Porsche instructors work on special techniques with you for driving safely on snow and ice. In addition, you practice developing your so-called ‘muscle memory’. As in dangerous situations there isn’t generally enough time to think about the right reaction, you have to be able to depend on your intuition. Turning these reactions into reflexes means: practice, practice and yet more practice.

You learn effective braking, changing direction and hill starts on low traction surfaces. Naturally, as a standard part of the course, our instructors also make an individual assessment of your driving style.

Porsche GT2 RS Coming to Beverly Hills Porsche













Porsche announced North American allocations for the 2011 911 GT2 RS and Beverly Hills Porsche will be receiving a precious few cars this go-round. Los Angeles represents one of the largest markets for Porsche so it's no surprise we will be seeing multiple units delivered here. This limited production GT2 RS marks yet another important milestone in Porsche's determination to create and build the ultimate supercars.

From the official Porsche press release:

The time: seven minutes, 18 seconds on the Nürburgring-
Nordschleife.

The power: 620 hp.

The weight: 3,021 lb in road trim with all fluids on board.

The car: the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

The GT2 RS made its world debut at the Moscow Auto Show on August 25th. The future top GT model marking the absolute climax in the 911 range is the fastest and most powerful road-going sports car ever built in the history of Porsche With power up by 90 hp and weight down by 154 lb in comparison with the 911 GT2, the new 911 GT2 RS has a power-to-weight ratio of just 4.9 lb per horsepower, by far the best power/weight ratio in its class. Obviously, these are the ideal ingredients for an ultra-high-performance sports car with supreme agility, truly blistering performance on the road, and of course exemplary Porsche Intelligent Performance. For despite this extra power and performance, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions versus the 911 GT2 are down by approximately 5% to 23.7 mpg and 284 g/km.

The 3.6 liter six-cylinder boxer engine boosted by two turbochargers with variable turbine geometry exclusive to Porsche in its combination with a gasoline engine drives the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. Developed especially for the 911 GT2 RS, sports tires measuring 325/30 ZR 19 convert this massive power into equally massive performance and acceleration on the road: 0 to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds, 0 to 124 mph in just 9.8 seconds, and 0 to 186 mph in 28.9 seconds. Top speed is 205 mph.


Equally supreme stopping power on this ultra-high-performance sports car comes from PCCB composite ceramic brakes. Appropriate longitudinal and crosswise dynamics are ensured by the sporting RS set-up of the springs, PASM Porsche Adaptive Suspension Management, anti-roll bars, as well as the dynamic engine mounts and PSM Porsche Stability Management.
In its looks the new 911 GT2 RS stands out clearly from the 911 GT2 above all through the lavish use of carbon-fiber-reinforced (CFR) components in matte-black surface finish, even wider wheels and flared wheel arches at the front, new 911 GT2 light-alloy wheels with central locking, as well as ”GT2 RS“ model designations on the doors and rear lid. The upgraded front spoiler lip and the rear spoiler lip made of CFR and is now almost 0.4 inches higher, again in surface carbon finish, ensure the right aerodynamic precision as well as extra downforce.

The interior also exudes the flair of sporting performance in virtually every detail, featuring lightweight bucket seats made of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic in carbon surface finish and lightweight door panels with door opening straps. The basic interior color is black, contrasting attractively with features such as the seat center sections and the roof lining as well as segments on the steering wheel rim. The gearshift and handbrake lever are both finished in red Alcantara suede.


Limited to just 500 units worldwide, the 911 GT2 RS goes on sale at Beverly Hills Porsche starting in October 2010. Planned MSRP will start at $245,000.
As an extremely limited production specialty vehicle, it is expected that all units produced will be pre-sold. Each vehicle will be custom produced to a customer’s specifications.

Porsche 918 Spyder is a Hit in Monterey!

Porsche 918 Spyder at Debut in Monterey California
What a great weekend in Monterey!

Porsche invited a select group of Porsche owners up to Monterey, California during Car Week for a very special encounter with the 918 Spyder Hybrid Concept. Potential customers were escorted to a super secret location, a private aircraft hanger, where the 918 Spyder was displayed with minimal distractions. The high-tech stage was lit from below with a soft green light and lit from above with clean white halogen and all you saw when you entered the room was the 918 in all its glory.

918 Spyder at Porsche Debut in Monterey California

Each visitor was assigned a personal guide that presented the car's features and answered all of their questions including the inevitable, "When can I get mine?" To which the answer was always, "The 918 has just been approved for production. We'll be keeping you informed of the progress." Some rumors are floating around that we should see the 918 debut as a 2015 model in 2014. Hard to say for sure, but for now we are just happy that Porsche confirmed that the car will indeed be produced.

Rear View Camera on Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid

The guides informed us that several changes will be made to the final version but what we were shown is very VERY close to what will be offered in the Beverly Hills Porsche showroom. The side pipes will most likely move to the rear and Porsche designers will rework the rear fascia to accommodate a license plate. The 22" wheels will be replaced with 20" rims and if they can't get the super cool rear-view cameras approved by EU and USA DOTs we'll see a mirrors instead. I for one hope they are able to keep the cameras!

Power is expected to increase from the petrol engine and as E-Drive development advances we may see some changes with final electric motor BHP outputs. The biggest challenge right now is to find a way to keep the car super light. Porsche hopes that battery technology they are experimenting with will save precious pounds in the production version.

VIP Showing in Monterey of Porsche 918 Spyder Concept

The press had their own time with the car and were treated to a chance to see the car in motion. J.F. Musial and crew shot this amazing video of the 918 Spyder on the beautiful back-roads of Monterey as Michael Mauer, Head of Design for Porsche narrates.

My favorite quote, "There were big, big question marks about the future of these types of cars, and therefore as well the future of the Porsche brand ... so therefore we wanted to have this symbol that there is a future."

Celebrity Porsche fans like California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jay Leno were also treated to VIP showings. The absolute highlight for me was to see Jay wave the exhaust up to his nose like a Master Chef testing the bouquet of a prized dish. The expression on his face was priceless. You can see his gesture on the "Jay Leno's Garage" video below.



On Sunday Porsche treated the public to a display during the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Michael Mauer drove the car up to the display area while Porsche fans from all around the world watched in wonder.

I think it is safe to say that the Porsche 918 Spyder stole the show 918 different ways. Will it be hard to wait three and a half years for the 918 to show up in Los Angeles? Sure... but great things come to those who wait!

Porsche Passion, The Search for the Oldest Porsche in America

1960 Porsche 365 at the Rodeo Drive Concours d'Elegance

Beverly Hills may be the super-car capital of the world but many may not know there is a thriving collector culture here too. California is home to some of the finest classic car collections on the planet. Los Angeles car shows always seem to bring out the best in automotive history. These shows almost always feature a Porsche of significance.

1960 Porsche 356 Steering Wheel

Now Porsche is celebrating 60 years in America and they are on the hunt for the USA's oldest Porsche. My Classic Porsche Search is open to all owners who think they have a shot at earning the “oldest” designation for their car. Entries can be submitted for 12 model ranges, including the Porsche 356, 911, 912, 914, 924, 928, 944, 968, Boxster, Cayenne, Carrera GT and Cayman. This is a perfect opportunity for Los Angeles collectors to show off their fantastic Porsche collections to the rest of the country.

Check out he details here: My Porsche Classic Search
The Porsche brand was established in Germany in 1948. In 1950, New York City businessman Max Hoffman introduced the Porsche 356 to America, sparking a love affair that has lasted for six decades. Today, America's passion for Porsche is deeper than ever, and our Family Tree sports strong new branches. To help us celebrate 60 years of Porsche in America, we’re inviting owners, fans and enthusiasts to tell their Porsche stories on our Porsche Family Tree. We're also looking for the oldest Porsche sports cars in the U.S. in the My Porsche Classic Search. One vehicle may be selected to be displayed in the Porsche exhibit at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show. Click on the icons below for more information. Thank you, America!

Porsche Builds the 25,000th Panamera

Ruby Red Porsche Panamera 4 V6 at Beverly Hills Porsche

Beverly Hills Porsche is the leading Porsche Panamera dealer in Los Angeles and perhaps in all of the USA. In the last three months we've delivered over 100 brand new Panamera V6s, Panamera S V8s and Panamera Turbos. Many of them are going to first time Porsche owners. With every passing day more and more people are reporting Panamera "sightings", as a result we've seen an increase in the number of BMW, Mercedes and Masarati drivers coming in to check out the first ever four door Porsche. Adding to the excitement Porsche announced this week that their Panamera production reached 25,000 units just 10 months since its debut.

Ruby Red Porsche Panamera 4 V6 at Beverly Hills Porsche

Stuttgart/Leipzig. The new fourth Porsche model series is enjoying such popularity that only ten months after the start of sales, the Leipzig factory of the Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart has already built the 25,000th Panamera. In addition to the Panamera, the new generation of the sporty, all-terrain vehicle – the Cayenne – is also being produced in the same facility in the State of Saxony. The anniversary vehicle, a ruby-red Panamera with a particularly efficient 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine (300 hp), will be delivered to a customer in the USA. “The benchmark performance of our Panamera V6 models wins over our customers worldwide. Even in the USA, a country with a preference for V8 engines, they impress with their efficiency and sportiness. The 4-door combines these aspects with the comfort and exclusivity of the luxury class,” says Porsche Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing Bernhard Maier. The fourth series has been on the market since September 2009, with the 400-hp strong 8-cylinder variants of the Panamera S and Panamera 4S, as well as Panamera Turbo (500 hp). Since May 2010, the Panamera and Panamera 4 have supplemented the product range with their V6 engines.

Porsche 918 Spyder Super Car, No Longer Just a Concept

Porsche 918 Spyder

Beverly Hills Porsche is pleased to announce the Porsche 918 Spyder has been green lighted for development and production. The concept car that has had the showroom and all of Los Angeles buzzing with anticipation is finally announced as a reality.

In a press release issued today, Porsche confirmed its intentions to build the super car. The 918 Spyder will be equipped with a plug-in hybrid power-train that consists of two electric motors located on the front and rear axle with a combined output of 218 HP and a 3.4L V8 gasoline engine which is mid-mounted and could develop 500 HP. This leads to an incredible estimated total power output of 718 HP.

With this hybrid power-train the Porsche 918 should be able to sprint from 0 to 62 MPH in just 3.2 seconds and it could reach a top speed of 198 MPH. Porsche claims this hybrid super-car will return a fuel consumption of 78 mpg with a CO2 emissions level of just 79 g/km.

Early guess-ti-ments the Porsche 918 spyder will be priced at around $630,000.


Official Press release
In its session today, the Supervisory Board of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, gave the green light for series development of the Porsche 918 Spyder. Reflecting the overwhelming response from the public and customers to the Concept Study, the Supervisory Board gave Porsche’s Board of Management the mission to develop a production model based on the car already presented. This concept version of an ultra-high-performance mid-engined sports car with plug-in hybrid technology made its debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show and at Auto China in Bejing, hitting the headlines worldwide. Michael Macht, President and Chairman of the Board of Management of Porsche AG: “Production of the 918 Spyder in a limited series proves that we are taking the right approach with Porsche Intelligent Performance featuring the combination of supreme performance and efficient drivetrain concepts. We will develop the 918 Spyder in Weissach and assemble it in Zuffenhausen. This is also a very important commitment to Germany as a manufacturing base.” The Concept Study of the 918 Spyder allows CO2 emissions of just 70 g/km, corresponding to fuel consumption of 3.0 litre/100 km (94.1 mpg imp) in the NEDC, on the one hand, and the performance of a super-sports car, on the other. This extremely efficient drivetrain technology then forms a symbiosis in the 918 Spyder with truly outstanding design and high-tech motorsport achievements. Further product details of the 918 Spyder will be disclosed in the months to come.
