  • [SC NEWS] Porsche Indonesia Announces 3 Upcoming Cars

    The Eurokars Group which is the sole distributor of Porsches in Indonesia invited us to break the fast at Iftar with them at the new Porsche Centre Jakarta showroom, and while the thought of free food was enough to get us excited, the announcement which Mr. Cristoph Choi (Managing Director of Porsche Indonesia) got us even more excited. He told us that Porsche Indonesia will be bringing three new models for the Indonesian customers, which are:

    1. The New Porsche 911 GT3

    Lets start with the one we're most excited about, the newly facelifted GT3 is coming into Indonesia. The previous GT3 had a 3.8L engine and a PDK only gearbox, this new one is sporting the 500 horsepower 4.0L engine just like the one in the GT3 RS and - enthusiasts rejoice - a manual gearbox option. Oh yes.

    While it is unlikely that an Indonesia customer will go for the manual option, lets remind ourselves that someone actually bought the manual-only 911 R, so there is still a possibility of someone ordering it, much respect if they do.

    Porsche didn't reveal the pricing, and they currently don't have any units available, so the GT3 will be a by order kind of thing. If you're interested, you might want to pick up the phone and call them.

    2. Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series

    This one can either be a really awesome addition, or just overkill. The Exclusive Series comes with all sort of limited edition things, including the Golden Yellow paint, the carbon fibre go-faster stripes, and an aerokit bodykit which is also available as an option for your everyday Turbo and Turbo S for peasants.

    The feature we love the most is those wheels. Porsche said that it was made with their own patented laser-thing technology. The wheels are painted in gold first and then black, afterwards they carve the wheels to make the gold lines with laser. We're not quite sure what that laser technology is, they probably had Darth Vader carving it with his lightsaber.

    There are other color options available for the Exclusive Series, and while the Golden Yellow paint and the whole aero kit might be a bit much, those wheels are to die for. Pricing is not announced by Porsche Indonesia, and much like the GT3 it will be brought in by order. So if you fancy yourself a limited edition Porsche, you might want to hurry and get to that phone as Porsche is only making 500 of these.

    3. Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid

    Last but not least is the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. Porsche Indonesia unveiled the Panamera 4S to us a while ago, and if you feel the need for extra thrill in your sports saloon, the Turbo S is the way to go, while remaining eco-friendly.

    This grocery-getter is a super car in it's own right, a total of 680 horsepower and 0-100km/h in 3.8 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package. While James May's mom would say it's unnecessary to have that much power, think of it like a less powerful and cheaper Porsche 918 - since it has similar drivetrain setup - but also with more seats so your whole family can experience the terror.

    Again, Porsche Indonesia didn't give us any pricing details - it's very normal in Indonesia - but as for the Panamera, they will have units available, with earliest one probably coming in the first quarter of 2018.

    So, excited? Three really awesome models are coming into Indonesia, shall we call it a Ramadan blessing? Also, although this wasn't officially announced, we heard that you could also order the Panamera Sport Turismo models from Porsche Centre Jakarta, so if estates are your thing, try giving them a call.

    So, which model would you guys buy with your holiday bonus?
