Twin Launch Marrying the Best in Performance, Luxury and Efficiency

Twin Launch Marrying the Best in Performance, Luxury and Efficiency

PT Eurokars Artha Utama, part of Eurokars Group and the official importer and distributor of Porsche in Indonesia, launched the new 718 Cayman and Panamera together on 27 February 2017 in a thrilling event that was held at The Pallas in Jakarta and witnessed by the media, VIPs and Porsche enthusiasts.

The event, which revolved around a lifestyle concept that seamlessly integrated fashion and automotive, was supported by Tri Handoko, a talented local designer. A media conference which was conducted prior to the launch event attracted some 70 media representatives from a range of lifestyle, business and motoring media outlets.

The new mid-engined 718 Cayman epitomizes the balance between a high performance sports car which is also efficient at the same time, thanks to all-new four-cylinder flat engines. Assisted by a turbocharger with Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG), a technology hitherto used exclusively in the 911 Turbo, the 718 Cayman S delivers 350 hp. The 718 Cayman is similarly turbocharged, delivering an impressive 300 hp. Both models have NEDC fuel consumption of 6.9 to 8.1 litres per 100 kilometres.

Porsche Indonesia also presented its new four doors sports saloon, the new Panamera, at the launch event. Born from courage, it reconciles two contrasting characteristics more than ever before: the performance of a genuine sports car and the comfort of a luxury saloon. Its engines and transmissions have been redesigned, its chassis perfected, and its display and control concept reinterpreted for the future.

Christoph Choi, Managing Director of Porsche Indonesia, said: “We are delighted to introduce two very exciting models to Indonesia, the new 718 Cayman and the new Panamera. Both models deliver what the Porsche core values stand for – tradition and innovation, performance and day to day usability. With the new down-sized engines, both models fit perfectly into the Indonesian tax structure, therefore we guarantee that every customer gets more for less!”
