RECORD PORSCHE SALES
Porsche has once again exceeded its previous year sales figures with increases across all markets. Porsche produced a record number of 237,778 vehicles in 2016. This is a 6% worldwide gain over 2015. The European, American and Chinese markets led the gain with 5%, 6% and 12% gains respectively. The Macan, 718 and Panamera model helped boost the record level sales figures.
“Our strong product range has enabled us to once again exceed the high levels from the previous year”, says Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG. “Porsche is synonymous with emotion and quality. The positive trend in the global markets confirms how enthusiastic our customers are.” However, he adds that exclusivity is more important to Porsche than sales targets. Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board responsible for Sales and Marketing, gives further reasons for this clear growth: “the strength of the brand and the exceptionally motivated dealership network, which we have continued to expand”.

Our friends at EVOMS (EVOLUTION MOTORSPORTS) have just completed the initial testing phase of their GT4 program. This test included the IPD Plenum, 82mm GT3 Throttle Body and EVOMS software tune. The performance gains were impressive to say the least. 20-30 wheel HP is realized throughout both power and torque curves, especially in the mid to upper rpm band. More engine upgrades and additional tuning are on the agenda for this week. Stay tuned for more details on project GT4 from EVOMS. ipdplenums.com

The 986 Boxsters – Circa 2000-2004

The first production Boxsters were introduced in 1996. This was Porsches first offering of a mid-engine platform, “manufactured” by Porsche since the 550 Spyder. Relatively minor upgrades were made to the Boxster during the early 986 era, but in 2000 Porsche introduced an “S” model with a 3.2L engine while increasing the base model engine from 2.5L to 2.7L. During this time, Porsche also switch from a conventional cable driven throttle body to an E-gas electronic throttle body (TB). Of course power was still being limited by the very restrictive 68mm TB to prevent the Boxster from being too fast and competitive with the 996 Carrera.

These early Boxsters don’t receive the praise as Porsche classics but they are still great drivers, especially with improved engine output. The Porsche Boxster driving experience can be elevated to a higher level with the 986 IPD Plenum and larger 74mm. Power gains can be found throughout both power and torque curves. Horsepower gains are seen immediately and are fully realized in the mid-range (4400-6000 rpm) where the Plenum and TB deliver an impressive 15 wheel HP. Torque gains are developed down low and remain consistent all the way to 6400 rpm.

The combination of the superior “Y” Plenum designed combined with the larger 74mm TB and smooth bore IPD custom silicone hose result in some impressive performance gains, especially in the light weight package of the 986.

Porsche continues to rewrite history at the 24 Hours of Daytona
The 2017 Daytona 24 Hours delivered unprecedented and thrilling photo finishes in all 3 main categories. The overall margin of victory in the top-level DPi class was 0.671 seconds between the Cadillacs. The #66 Ford GT took top honors in the GTLM class over the brand-new Porsche 911 RSR by a mere 2.98 second margin after 24 hours. Porsche just edge out the threatening third place 488 GTE Ferrari by a blink of an eye at 0.091 seconds. This is without question a major victory for the new Porsche RSR being its debut race at North America’s premier endurance race event. The new and improved RSR proved that the heavily revised design delivers a competitive performance right out of the box making its future in the 2017 motorsport season very promising. The other huge and unexpected news came from the popular GTD category where the Alega Motorsports team took top honors in their 911 GT3 R by 0.293 seconds over an Audi R8 LMS GT3 which was closely followed by a Mercedes AMG GT3, another Audi R8 and an Acura NSX GT3 (all on the same lap) after a 24-hour battle. Congratulations to Porsche for an impressive performance at this year’s 24 Hours of Daytona.

The New Year is always a great time for fresh starts, healthy habits and organizing priorities. This approach should also be applied to your valuable Porsche so she continues to deliver maximum performance, dependability and minimize the potential for any disasters and costly repairs. Some of these might seem obvious but need be addressed to ensure more smiles for miles for you and your beloved Porsche(s).
2017 MAINTENANCE TIPS:

LUGS NUTS – Confirm they are torqued to 95 Foot Pounds unless you’re lucky enough to have Center Locks which require 440 Foot Pounds and some muscle.

FILTERS – Engine Air Filters need regular replacement and this is a perfect opportunity to upgrade your air filters with an after-market filter for additional performance gains. Cabin Pollen Filter life varies from region to region but should also be checked and replaced regularly.

FLUIDS – Engine Oil is an obvious and routine maintenance check but the transmission and brake fluids are equally as important and should also be double checked and topped off.

BRAKES – Brake Pad & Rotor wear vary from car to car and driver to driver so make sure there is plenty of life in your brakes to avoid possible disaster.

ENGINE BELTS – This is a critical check point because too many assume that it’s fine, but if you track your Porsche it is essential that you confirm your belt isn’t cracked or frayed from track debris.

MAF SENSOR – Although a degraded MAF sensor won’t cause a CEL it will prevent your engine from making peak engine power and torque since the precious metal element loses resolution.

TIRE PRESSURE – Tire pressures vary with each Porsche model, driving style and set up but keeping pressures consistent improves handling and extends tire wear.

TIRES – Porsches tend to have larger, low profile tires. But with lowered cars and wide low profile tires it’s easy to miss irregular wear without getting underneath the car to confirm proper wear patterns.

ECU & SENSORS – An ECU systems check needs to be performed to confirm “Readiness” within the ECU and all critical sensors that communicate with the ECU.

WIPER BLADES – We always forget to check our blades (at least here in Southern California) and only remember when we’re reminded when we need them most, in adverse weather conditions.

LIGHTS – Again, don’t assume that everything in the light department is OK. Grab a friend to help with a walk around the car while you put on a light show confirm you can see and be seen properly.

Happy New Year & Happy Motoring from IPD

IPD might be closed this week, but we will be back in the driver’s seat with the pedal to the metal again next year. 2017 should be another exciting year with plenty of new Plenum and Y-Pipe products being launched for Porsche’s latest offerings. So stay tuned for all the latest IPD developments and announcements. Until then, we wish everyone a Happy & Prosperous New Year!!!
