Porsche spare parts

The world-famous automobile manufacturer Porsche, a join stock corporation Porsche AG since previously independent Volkswagen Porsche, the design office and the manufacturing site merging in 1972. The company is the market leader in terms of quality of their cars and profitability. The areas of specialization include high-performance (unique) sports cars, SUVs and serial models. They own a network of sport clubs and organize different car races including cups.
The first automobile under that name (Porsche46) covered its first miles in 1939 and participated in Berlin to Rome car race. Several Type 60К10 cars were manufactured in summer on the same year. Only one of them has survived until present and is stored in a private collection. The automobile batch production was started in 1948 and on the same year the roadster was replaced by the sedan. Note that Porsche first logo (shield) appeared only in 1952. Before that there was nothing more than the name on the car body. The logo was designed by Ferry Porsche himself.
The company’s evolution stages
Stage I
• The Porsche 550 Spyder was a 1.3 L rear-engine racing sports car produced in1953 which could accelerate to 230 km/h. Each cylinder was equipped with two ignition coils and two plugs. The automobile was the winner of several races.
• The Porsche 356 (first production automobile) was manufactured in 1954 with a derated engine. The car won several races and was named as the Carrera. It was equipped with brake discs due to the dynamic shape of the body, high speed and because of the safety requirements. All in all, they had produced 436 automobiles until 1963.
• The Porsche 1911 started its triumph conquest of the market in 1963. A two-door cabriolet or coupe has been manufactured in different modified versions up to the present time. It was equipped with a 6-cylinder engine located behind the rear axis and had 2 or 4 seating. Its sports models have won a number of car races and rallies.
• The basic components of the engine, suspension and body have not been significantly changed throughout the car manufacturing history. Only bumpers, current supply system and aerodynamic design have been a subject of modifications. The design potential enabled to increase the engine capacity by 1.7 times without changing the car size. Implementation of afterburning and turbo engine made it possible to increase the capacity by 2.3 times.
• Bulk sales of 2.0 L base engine equipped with six carburetor were launched in 1965. The wheels with an independent suspension were equipped with brake discs. Note that the rear ones were mounted using elbow joints and torsion bars.
• The car was equipped with a heater and a conditioner could be installed as well.
• Automatic gearboxes were installed in some of the exported to the USA cars in 1968.
• Bumpers design was updated and their shockproofability was increased in 1969. On the same year springs in shock struts were replaced with torsion bars.
Stage II
• Based on the number of changes made from 1974 to 1989 the automobile was renamed as G-modell due to the USA ecological and safety requirements. High standard of safety requirements foresaw safety of the automobile in general and stability in case of a frontal collision in particular. Bumpers energy absorption was increased, design of the body components was changed and new parts were added which, however, made no influence on the car appearance. Head restraints with changeable positions, safety belts for all passengers and safe and ‘breakable’ steering pillar were introduced. Torsion bars completely replaced springs in suspensions and improved anti-roll bars along with rubber bushings. Better quality of brake discs, calipers and other parts improved the brake system reliability. K-Jetronic fuel injection technology implemented in the powertrain equipped with mechanical injection fuel supply system with advanced retention of petrol fumes and CO emission corresponded to ecological requirements. The engine operation was not influenced by changeable weather conditions and drive modes. The only disadvantage of that upgrading was connected with the power loss due to turbocharge failure.
• Bulk production of G models (a 150 hp. 911 and a 175 hp. 911S) for the European market was launched in 1974. A 209 hp. sport car 2.7 L 911 Carrera with six throttling butterfly valves was also successfully introduced to the market. Implementation of a double clutch release bearing enabled smooth gear changes and saved petrol consumption. The model with advanced bumpers and enlarged rear wheelbase was the fastest one. The two turbomachines and sixteen cylinders increased the automobile capacity by 480 hps and enabled to accelerate to 310 km/h. АВС, electronic regulation of suspension, tire pressure sensor along with an advanced and sport-type reinforced and more rigid suspension were implemented as well. A steering pump making driving more comfortable was also installed.
Porsche sport utility vehicles (crossovers)
Mid-size luxury automobiles of that class are considered to be of the highest quality and are extremely popular among the customers.
Although the number of SUVs is limited they have many different equipment levels. All in all, the line includes seven SUV models:
• The Cayenne
• The Boxster
• The Cayman
• The Panamera
• The 911
• The Macan
• The 918 Spyder
We will describe only the most popular models.
The Porsche Сayenne is the first crossover sport utility vehicle (SUV) produced since 2002. As Volkswagen specialists took part in the car engineering they borrowed some of VW Touareg design ideas which resulted in the vehicle’s equipping with similar chassis and load bearing elements of body. Two models, the Cayenne Turbo and the Cayenne S were designed at the same time and the main difference between them was in their engines. The first model has a twinturbo V8 engine and you can easily recognize it by two front air intake openings and four exhaust pipes. The second one has a 4.5 L and 340 hp. engine without turbocharging with air cooling and a more sportive design. The twinturbo model is equipped with adjustable up to 27.3 cm clearance and air dampening. A hybrid petrol and 47-hp. electric engine is widely used as well. They are equipped with a 6-floor manual or 8-floor automatic transmission.
A year later the model name was transformed into simple the Cayenne with 250-hp. engine, 17-inch wheels and mechanical (less popular) or automatic gear box. The unique design, original xenon headlights and expressive side panels became extremely popular and were of high demand despite high cost of the automobile. Also, seats with advanced ergonomics and a multifunctional display were installed inside, let alone plastic and aluminum parts which made it look sportive and luxury.
The Porsche Macan is the latest SUV 521 hp. model. This is the Javanese word for tiger. The car cost is $ 16,000 lower compared to the previous model. Apart from that, it is more comfortable and compact. However, it looks as ‘athletic’ as the Сayenne and seems like being ready for immediate start due to large air intake openings, advanced aerodynamics and the roof level. Additional car locking bars produce ‘narrow’ affect and increase the beauty of the car appearance.
The Porsche Boxster was initially introduced to the 1993 North American International Auto Show and produced a stunning effect. Although serial 2.5 L and 240 hp. models were of a slightly simpler design they remained extremely popular. Since 2002 the automobile has become even more powerful with a 3.2 L and 253 hp. engine. The 2004 Paris Motor Show was the venue where the second generation 2.45 L and 295 hp. model was introduced.
Apart from 4WD hybrid and diesel automobiles, the SUV transmission has been significantly changed in the models of the latest generations. Almost the entire drafting is distributed among the rear drive wheels and is transformed to the front with multidisk clutch one only whenever necessary with simultaneous blocking of the axles differential and with no underspeed mode. As a result of that the engineers managed to decrease fuel consumption and to increase the car power.
Porsche tractors
Porsche Junior is a light, one-cylinder, 15 hp. and air-cooled diesel engine tractor.
Porsche Standart is a two-cylinder and 50 hp. tractor with the speed of 28 km/h.
Porsche Super is a four-cycle and three-cylinder 2.6 L and 40 hp. diesel engine tractor with the speed of 27 km/h.
Presently all of them are more than 50 years old and are exhibited in museums.
