Porsche Centre Kuwait, Behbehani Motors Company, will mark the beginning of the New Year with displays of its latest sports cars at the upcoming Kuwait Motor Show 2020 – the country’s annual automotive exhibition. Taking place from 16th till 25th January at the 360 Mall, the event will offer visitors an opportunity to take a closer look at a selection of models, including the recently launched Cayenne Coupé and 911.
As part of Porsche’s participation in the exhibition, individualisation will be brought to life with the showcase of a 911 Carrera 4, which has been customised by Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, the brand’s in-house workshop. The display model will highlight examples of personalisation options and the craftsmanship involved in making a Porsche as unique as its owner.
Hany Marie, Brand Manager of Porsche Centre Kuwait, said: “We are delighted to once again participate in the Kuwait Motor Show. This event continues to grow from strength-to-strength and gives us a great opportunity to showcase additions to our model range. We start 2020 in a strong position, following a successful 2019 where we achieved a five per cent increase in the number of cars delivered to customers. With a variety of new sports cars on display, we encourage all enthusiasts and members of the public to attend this year’s exhibition.”
The 911 Carrera 4 which will be on display is equipped with a 385 hp, three-litre twin-turbo flat-six engine. Fitted with the 8-speed PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplung) transmission, the model accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds, reaching a top speed of 291 km/h. When equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package, this time drops to 4.0 seconds. A striking two-tone Black and Bordeaux red leather interior and 20/21-inch Carrera S wheels in Satin Aurum emphasize the vehicle’s sporty credentials.
Also taking centre stage will be the Cayenne Coupé, the latest addition to Porsche’s highly successful SUV model. The Coupé introduces a range of new attributes, including sharper contours, a unique rear end design, an adaptive spoiler, and two roof concepts: panoramic fixed glass (fitted as standard) or an optional carbon roof. The S Coupé variant features a 2.9-litre V6 engine with twin-turbochargers and develops 440 hp. Meanwhile, the Cayenne Turbo Coupé has a four-litre V8 engine that generates 550 hp, and a maximum torque of 770 Nm.
Porsche enthusiasts will also be pleased to see a 911 Speedster forming part of the showcase at the 2020 motor show. The limited edition model accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds, reaching a top speed of 310 km/h. A bespoke black two-tone leather interior with decorative stitching and embroidery in contrasting colour, 20-inch Speedster wheels in satin black and a 6-speed GT sports manual transmission showcases the Speedster’s authentic nature.
Completing the lineup at the 2020 Kuwait Motor Show will be the brand’s high-performance luxury saloon, the Panamera and a member of Porsche’s highly successful compact SUV range, the Macan S. With its three-litre V6 turbocharged engine, the Macan S derivative accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.1 seconds, when equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package. The model has a top speed of 254 km/h and features all the product innovations of the latest generation Macan model range, including the LED light bar at the rear and a Porsche Communication Management system with a 10.9-inch touchscreen.
The Kuwait Motor Show will take place from 16 until 25 January at 360 Mall.
