New for 2016:Porsche

Philly Murtha | Feb 02, 2016
German sports car maker Porsche, a Volkswagen Group premium brand, set an annual sales record in the United States in 2015 with help from two SUVs: the brand’s best-selling Cayenne plus the smaller, much-in-demand Macan, introduced in 2015. For the 2016 model year, Porsche focuses on upscale infotainment technology by offering an optional ultra-premium rear-seat entertainment system for its 4-door models.

Also, at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, Porsche showed off its redone 2017 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S—with 20 more horsepower, sharper design elements, and advanced driver-assistance technologies—that will bow during the 2016 calendar year.
