Porsche – 17/18 – rpmGo.com

Not sure the dudes who created this weren’t high on something, but here’s a tuning program for the Porsche Cayenne, created by a tuning company in Russia. I’m sure with all those colors and those marijuana leaf logos, this would’ve been a big success back in the flower power age, but now, it’s just weird. View more photos after the jump.

Recently, a lot of buzz was created around Porsche wanting to takeover Volkswagen. Porsche, which currently owns 31% of VW wanted to increase its holdings in VW to 51% and become the major owner of VW and having majority voting rights. However, there was a problem with the German government, the so called “Volkswagen law”, to be more specific, which prohibited any company in owning more than 20% voting rights in Volkswagen.

But today, the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg decided to take down the German law, there for giving Porsche the clearing for takeover, the only problem Porsche might still be facing being the opposition at VW’s workers council. Porsche officials will get together on a meeting on November 12 so we expect more details to be made available after that meeting.

When Porsche raised its holdings in VW to 31% they spent 5 billion Euro ($7.1 billion), investment which is now valued at over 16 billion Euro ($22.8 billion). And if the “Volkswagen law” is repealed, they raised 8.6 billion Euro ($12.2 billion) to acquire the extra 20%.

I’m sure everybody knows the famous “The Sopranos” show. Well, it seems that the family is getting rid of all its cars. After Tony Soprano’s Chevrolet Suburban was for sale on eBay, the Porsche Cayenne S drove by Edie Falco (Carmela Soprano) is also on sale, this time for charity. Donated by Porsche to The Sopranos in 2005, the Cayenne is now auctioned off by the Andre Agassi’s Charitable Foundation, which will get all the money.

The car, which also includes a signed named plate by Edie Falco and James Gandolfini has a starting bid of $60,000. Check out the official website of the auction here. So, what can we say, it’s nice that, besides fame and glamour, someone also thinks about those less fortunate.

Yeah, we know it’s a tough one to remember, but that’s the name of Gemballa’s latest “toy”, based on the Porsche 911. And if you’re troubled by its name, wait and see what it packs. Because Gemballa’s latest creation is simply a beast. They’ve taken the GT2, and pumped it up to 650 bhp, resulting a car that goes from 0 to 100 km/h (60 mph) in 3.3 seconds and to 200 km/h (125mph) in under 10 seconds.

Hehe, pretty impressive, huh? But you thought that’s all? No, no, no…Gemballa also created a 750 bhp version of the same GT2, that has about the same acceleration and a top speed of 336 km/h (208mph).

And if that’s not enough, the lucky owners of this little “beasts” will get exclusive interior and exterior fittings.

The German tuner 9ff announced the release of the Porsche 9ff GT9, based on the 911 GT3 model, with an impressive promise. They said this car will go beyond 400km/h. Should the guys at Bugatti be scared? Maybe, because 9ff looked serious and they have an interesting history, reaching 381 with a modified version of the current 997.

Powered by a 4.2 liter double Turbo engine that develops a whooping 987 HP and weighting only 1,300 kg, the Porsche 9ff GT9 is a real threat to the Bugatti Veyron and we can’t wait for the autumn to see what happens.
