2013 – The new Porsche 911 Carrera 4 – Official

Porsche New 911 Carrera 4 (991)
Well after numerous spyshots, the current 991 series are officially to have active all-wheel drive system 911 later in 2012.

Not surprisingly there are only four versions of the all-wheel drive 911 – as the 911 Carrera 4 and 911 Carrera 4S and each as Coupé and Cabriolet. They sport the same traits as the rear-wheel drive versions: their lightweight body design, suspension, engines and gearboxes are identical, the only exception being modifications related to the all-wheel drive. This means that despite a higher level of engine and driving performance, all four models consume significantly less fuel than the previous models; total savings for individual versions are as much as 16 per cent. In addition, the new 911 Carrera 4 is up to 65 kg lighter in weight.

Audi Q5 Facelift Spyshots

The Audi Q5 was first revealed in 2008 and now the engineers from Ingolstadt are finalising the face lifted Q5.

The front is getting most work sporting new headlights and a restyled front bumper with the chrome grill getting the corner chamfer similar to the recently unvailed RS4.

The front grill is also rumoured to have the hexagonal pattern but this isn’t the case on this prototype just the very lazy camouflage around the detailed chamfers.

We also think the interior is getting some improvements around the centre cluster as this was heavily covered up in the photos.

The original Q5 debuted at the Beijing Auto Show which begins again in April, that may be a bit too soon for Audi so perhaps we may see it at the Paris Motor Show later in the year.

The range-topping Golf models will use a new 2.0-liter TFSI Petrol engine with more producing around 240 hp on the GTI and around 310 hp in the Golf R which will be equipped with VW’s 4Motion 4 wheel drive system.

VW accidently gave us our first look at a very early clay prototype of the Mk7 Golf featuring a agressive snout and more steeply raked windscreen through an official video back in 2009.
