Porsche unveils the most powerful 911 of all time

The fastest and most powerful road-approved 911 is ready for launch: The new Porsche 911 GT2 RS will celebrate its world premiere at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK (June 30 to July 2). At the heart of this high-performance sports car is a 700 hp (515 kW) biturbo flat engine. Weighing in at 1,470 kg with a full fuel tank, the lightweight two-seater accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds. The rear-wheel drive Coupé has a top speed of 340 km/h, and with its near-motorsport drive technology, the new 911 GT2 RS trumps its 3.6-litre predecessor by 80 hp (59 kW) and achieves a torque of 750 Newton metres (an increase of 50 Nm).

 The model builds on the 911 Turbo S 3.8-litre engine, which produces 580 hp (427 kW). In order to increase performance, large turbochargers push an increased volume of process air into the combustion chambers. A new additional cooling system delivers optimum cooling at peak loads and, at very high temperatures, sprays the charge-air cooler with water. This causes the gas temperature to fall in the overpressure range and ensures optimum power output, even under extreme conditions.

 The customised GT seven-speed double-clutch transmission (PDK) in the new GT2 RS enables power to be transferred with uninterrupted traction. What’s more, the specially developed exhaust system is made from extra-lightweight titanium, weighs around seven kilograms less than the system used in the 911 Turbo and delivers an emotional sound.

 For the first time ever, Porsche Design is celebrating the debut of the high-performance sports car by releasing a special watch. Paying homage to the world of motorsport, the 911 GT2 RS timepiece is exclusively available to owners of the new vehicle.

 Racing chassis for outstanding dynamic cornering

Discipline in sport means mastering every detail. And in the world of super sports cars, cornering speeds are on another level. The 911 GT2 RS reaches these speeds thanks to its flawless racing chassis with rear-axle steering and Ultra High Performance (UHP) tyres. Like all GT sports cars, the new top model features a specially calibrated PSM with a Sport mode that is tailored to provide optimal driving dynamics. Powerful air intakes, outlets and the imposing rear wing emphasise that the vehicle’s aerodynamics have mastered both form and design.

 The large, wide wheels (265/35 ZR 20 at the front and 325/30 ZR 21 at the rear) ensure outstanding braking and cornering forces. The 911 GT2 RS features Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) as standard. The front wings, wheel housing vents, outer shells on the Sport Design exterior mirrors, air intakes on the rear side sections and parts of the rear end are made from carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFR), as are many of the interior components. The bonnet is also made from carbon to make the vehicle as lightweight as possible, while the standard trim roof is made from magnesium. Both body parts have a wide lateral swage line.

Optional Weissach package with 30-kg weight saving

Performance can always be cranked up a notch – even on the 911 GT2 RS. That’s why the Porsche engineers have developed the optional Weissach package, which provides a weight saving of around 30 kilograms. The package includes additional elements made from carbon-fibre reinforced plastic and titanium. For instance, the roof and the anti-roll bars are made of carbon, and so are the coupling rods on both axles. Magnesium wheels reduce both the gross weight and the unsprung weight, providing a greater wealth of impressive chassis properties. The luggage compartment lid and the carbon-weave finish roof are emblazoned with a central strip in the same colour as the car for a visually distinctive look.

 A truly sporty interior

The interior of the 911 GT2 RS is dominated by red Alcantara, black leather and interior parts with a carbon-weave finish as standard. The model’s sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles enables quick and sporty gear changes. Drivers and passengers experience the driving dynamics of the high-performance sports car in full bucket seats with a carbon-weave finish. Typical of every 911, the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) is the central control unit for audio, navigation and communication. The Connect Plus module and Porsche Track Precision app are also included as standard, enabling detailed recording, display and analysis of driving data on a smartphone.

 The optional Chrono Package expands the PCM functions to include performance display, which can be used to show, save and evaluate track times. The package also includes a stopwatch on the switch panel with both analogue and digital display. What’s more, the Chrono Package on the 911 GT2 RS comes with a lap trigger. Using the Porsche Track Precision app in conjunction with external markers on a start/finish straight, this lap trigger enables drivers to record lap times with a high level of precision.

 Exclusive watch to accompany the car: Porsche Design 911 GT2 RS Chronograph

Porsche Design has teamed up with Porsche Motorsport to develop the 911 GT2 RS Chronograph, exclusively for customers of the new super sports car. At its heart is the first clock movement developed by Porsche Design, the product of three year’s work. The calibre 01.200 includes a flyback function, a load-path-optimised movement bridge and an official COSC certificate of authenticity. The timepiece housing is made of lightweight titanium.

 Many of the details on the timepiece are based on the high-performance sports car. The tungsten winding rotor is modelled on the rims of the 911 GT2 RS. The clock face is made of carbon, while the design of the time display matches the instrument cluster and the tachometer.

 Pricing will be announced shortly.

  • Toyota ties-up with Industrial Training Institutes to set-up distinctive training model
  • T-TEP, a CSR Initiative by Toyota Kirloskar Motor started in India during 2006
  • Toyota has partnered with 48 institutes so far under the TTEP program across the country

  • TTEP (BP) provides on-the-job training through Toyota Dealerships to enhance skill sets, thus increasing employability ratio
  • Till date more than 6,750 students have been trained under this program, of which 63% have been recruited by Toyota Dealerships across the country 

Chennai, 4th Jul 2017:

Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd. announced the launch of its distinctive training model T-TEP (BP) at Don Bosco Technical Campus in Chennai, an initiative aimed at creating a pool of talented and skilled professionals for the automobile industry. This is Toyota’s fourth institutional tie-up to enhance skill scales in the state of Tamil Nadu. The first TTEP program was established in M. C. Jain Industrial Training Center in Chennai, under General Technician category during 2006.

The industry is witnessing rapid growth and so is the need for skilled and trained personnel. There exists a hugh skill gap and this special initiative of Toyota represents the continuous efforts to meet such challenges. Hence, associating with ITI’s gives access to train and equip their large pool of young people with the best knowledge.

The event was graced by Fr. Johnson Anthonisamy SDB, Rector of Don Bosco Technical Campus – Chennai, Fr. Ashok Amaladoss SDB, Director of Don Bosco Technical Campus – Chennai, Mr M Lankalingam, Dealer Principal, Lanson Toyota – Chennai, Mr. T K Manikansan, Vice President & Mr. Senthil Kumar, Vice President (Customer Service) – Harsha Toyota, Chennai  along with  Mr. B. Padmanabha, Vice President (Customer Service Group) Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd., – Bengaluru & Mr. Ravi P Sontakke, Deputy General Manager (Customer Service Group) – Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd., Bengaluru.

T-TEP, a special training module in which Toyota has tied up with industrial training institutes, was launched in 2006 in India. The program aims at providing technical know-how training to ITI students across India including hands-on real time experience in Toyota outlets. Since launch, TTEP is associated with 48 training institutes under the program. In its first year, the program was implemented in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Hubli. The program was subsequently introduced nation-wide covering Bengaluru, Mysuru, Lalru, Pune, Cochin, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Ghaziabad, Kolkata, Jaipur, Jalandhar, Indore, Vizag, Ludhiana, Cuttack, Haldwani, Nalbari, Gurgaon, Satara, Paramakudi , Chalakudy, Mangaluru, Calicut & Nashik.

Till now, more than 6,750 students have been trained under this training program of which 63% have been offered employment opportunities at Toyota Dealerships across India.  This is the fourth T-TEP in Tamilnadu, following one institute in Mohanmull Chordia Jain Industrial Training Center Chennai and two in Govt Industrial Training Institute, Paramakudi 2years back. Till date, a total of over 240 students have been trained by Toyota through this program from the state, of which 83% have been recruited by Toyota Dealers.

With this program, Toyota Kirloskar Motor intends to enhance the technical abilities and employability of Industrial Training Institute (ITI) students in the age group of 16 to 18 years. The program will benefit ITIs in building skilful technicians for the Indian automotive repair industry. The current automobile repair industry is characterised by inadequately skilled manpower and lack of professional training for repair and diagnostics

The event marked the launch of the second Body & Paint TTEP Program in Tamil Nadu. The BP T-TEP training syllabus imparts training on basic body and paint repair skills in addition to dealer specific requirements to students, thereby improving their knowledge of repair techniques and facilitating the adoption of latest technology in Body & Paint. Currently, Body & Paint technicians have limited information and hands on experience on correct repair operations and techniques, forcing dealers to recruit manpower from local garages. Toyota along with its supplier partners, Axalta Coating Systems India Pvt Ltd and 3M, will provide all necessary support to the institute i.e. training consumables, visiting faculty, training material, tools, equipments etc.

Commenting on the occasion Fr. Johnson Anthonisamy SDB, Rector, of The Don Bosco Technical Campus said,

“It is an honour to be associated with Toyota through this unique program – TTEP.  Our institutions’ mission to give quality education and we see this partnership as a great opportunity to train students to become highly skilled potential employees. The new curriculum will also offer another dimension to the already comprehensive automotive technology program we offer at our institute.” 

Commenting on the occasion Mr. B Padmanabha, Vice President (Customer Service Group) – Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd. said, “The progress of our country is in the hands of the youth. By providing them with necessary opportunities and advanced skill and knowledge training, we should increase their competency to meet the rising market requirements. Due to the huge gap between what is taught and what the industry requires, a substantial time is spent by companies on training and retraining new talent. These initiatives will only reduce such gaps, enabling each candidate to be industry-ready as soon as they graduate from the institutes.

Toyota Technical Education Program – Body & Paint [TTEP– BP category] launch at Don Bosco Technical Campus, Chennai Video Link’s .

We first established this training module back in 2006, when we started facing the issue of inadequate trained and skilled manpower availability across the industry. We want TTEP to be a contributing partner to the sustainable growth of the automobile industry by enhancing the technical capabilities of young India. The students who have undergone this training program will be seamless to what they will experience in a real plant facility operations.  In India, we have established successful association with 48 institutes across 17 states under the TTEP program. It is in line with Government’s ‘Skill India’ program helping bridge the gap that lies in the availability of highly skilled workforce to match up with India’s rapidly growing industrial sector.  With these T-TEP launches, we are further emphasizing our objective to churn out opportunities for talented students from the rural areas and make them more employable for the Indian automobile industry.

The special course of Body & Paint Technician is designed keeping in mind the advanced technology required for the Automobile Market. We thrive to give best to the students who will eventually contribute to the growing Automobile Market and Service Industry” he added.

The BP T-TEP, a 1 year syllabus, introduces students to Toyota’s advanced technology and service techniques under Body & Paint trade. This program also includes on-the-job training at Toyota’s dealerships. As a part of this program, TKM will also train institute instructors in the latest technology, used at Toyota and the automobile industry.

TKM plans to further expand this program to technical institutes across the country in the coming years and reach out to many more students to up-scale their skill sets. The project is jointly funded by Toyota Motor Corporation and Toyota Kirloskar Motor. Together they provide T-TEP institutes with hi-tech training packages and Toyota service training manuals and materials.

T-TEP is widely recognized across the globe for its effectiveness. The program has been successfully introduced in 508 institutes across 55 countries by Toyota, which includes USA, Australia, Italy, South Africa, China, Vietnam and India.

GENERAL MOTORS INDIA TO FOCUS ON EXPORTS

· Talegaon Assembly Plant to remain an export hub
· Chevrolet domestic sales to cease by the end of 2017
· Decision follows a comprehensive review of future product plans
· Support is in place for affected customers, employees, dealers and suppliers

Delhi, India – General Motors India announced today that it will focus on its growing vehicle export manufacturing operations and cease sales in the domestic market by the end of 2017.

The decision, which follows a comprehensive review of future product plans for GM India, is part of a series of actions taken by General Motors to address the performance of its operations worldwide. Through the review, which began in June 2016, the company determined its greatest opportunity in India to drive shareholder return rests on focusing on exports from India.

Stefan Jacoby, GM executive vice president and president of GM International, said, “We explored many options, but determined the increased investment originally planned for India would not deliver the returns of other significant global opportunities. It would also not help us achieve a leadership position or compelling, long-term profitability in the domestic market. Difficult as it has been to reach this decision, it is the right outcome to support our global strategy and deliver appropriate returns for our shareholders.”

This announcement is consistent with GM’s global disciplined allocation of capital and investment in its business around the world designed to generate stronger returns and drive shareholder value.

 

“Our decision in India is an important milestone in strengthening the performance of our GM International operations and establishing GM as a more focused and disciplined company,” said Jacoby.

As GM moved to consolidate Indian manufacturing at its Talegaon Assembly Plant, the company ceased manufacturing at its Halol Assembly Plant on April 28, 2017. Negotiations continue on the asset sale at Halol.

Kaher Kazem, GM India president and managing director, said the focus for the GM India manufacturing base at Talegaon will be export markets, upcoming export vehicle launches and exploring longer-term strategic options.

“GM India’s export business has tripled over the past year,” Kazem said. “Exports will remain our focus going forward as we continue to leverage India’s strong supply base. We recently launched the new Chevrolet Beat hatchback for export to Mexico and Central and South American markets and will launch the Chevrolet Beat sedan later this year for those markets.

“We will support our affected customers, employees, dealers and suppliers,” Kazem said. “Chevrolet owners can be assured that we will continue to honor all warranties and provide comprehensive aftersales support.”

GM India informed employees of the decision today.

The company will work closely with affected customers and dealers on a transition plan. The customer support center will remain open and all warranties and service agreements, as well as ongoing service and parts requirements for all vehicles, will continue to be honored. Our customers can call 1-800-3000-8080, email us at gmi.cac@gm.com or visit chevrolet.co.in.

ISUZU launches the ‘mu-X’ premium full-size 7 seater SUV in India

Speaking at the occasion, Mr. Hiroshi Nakagawa, Director of the

Mr. Hitoshi Kono, Deputy Managing Director, Isuzu Motors India, added, “The ISUZU mu-X is the perfect SUV for the modern Indian SUV buyer and it has been designed to offer the perfect combination of style, power and road presence while also providing excellent space and comfort. The Indian market for SUVs is now coming of age and we are excited to be present here in these times with our latest offering. We are confident the mu-X will set a new benchmark for full size premium SUVs in India.”

  • The mu-X is powered by the 3.0 litre ISUZU Ddi VGS Turbo Hi-Power engine which gives a maximum power output of 130 kW (177 PS) and a maximum torque of 380 Nm with a superior flat torque curve. The mu-X will be available in both 4×2 and 4×4 variants with a 5 speed sequential shift Automatic Transmission. The 4×4 variant sports a ‘shift-on-the-fly’ 4×4 select dial for an excellent off-roading capability.
  • On the exterior, the mu-X is styled with a tiger-inspired dynamic and muscular exterior that make it look truly spectacular and dominating on the road, a must have characteristic for a sports utility vehicle in this class.
  • ISUZU vehicles are renowned for their tough build and the mu-X stays true to this reputation with a high tensile steel body with tailor welded blanks and crumple zones with anti-intrusion bars.
  • Advanced active safety systems like ESC (Electronic Stability Control), TCS (Traction Control System) and ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) with EBA (Emergency Brake Assist) and EBD (Electronic Brake force Distribution) along with a host of passive safety systems provide enhanced safety under unfavourable driving conditions.
  • A key aspect of the mu-X is the 3rd row seating which allows full-size adults comfortable seating with ample leg room and foot-well. Another key aspect is the fully folding second row seat with a one-touch fold-and-tumble feature with maximum ingress space. The third row is no longer an excuse for adults to avoid.
  • The full size 7 seater SUV has been designed to provide the best-in-class space inside the vehicle, one of the unique features of the mu-X. Along with space, the mu-X sports other creature comforts, along with superior options for entertainment. All this and much more make the mu-X a formidable entrant in the premium full size 7 seater SUV market.

The concept of All Muscle. All Heart.

The world of SUVs is a world of duality; a duality that is characterised by a divergence between what the SUV buyer wants as an individual – style, power and a dominating road presence versus what the buyer’s family seeks from the SUV – spaciousness and comfort. The Indian SUV buyer faces this compromise more often than the SUV buyer anywhere else in the world, and often times has to choose one over the other.

With the ISUZU mu-X, this compromise will be a thing of the past.

The ISUZU mu-X has been designed to offer the best of both worlds. It is equal parts Muscle – for the individual’s needs and equal parts Heart – for the family’s needs.

All Muscle, for the aggressive muscular design, the tough tank-like build, the legendary ISUZU engine for superior performance and an exceptional off-roading capability; All Heart, for the best-in-class interior space, including that in the 3rd row, excellent ride comfort and stability, and a host of active and passive safety systems.

The ISUZU mu-X has been designed to offer the following key value propositions –

Styled to stand out

The ISUZU mu-X gets its aggressive demeanour from the Tiger-inspired dynamic and muscular exterior. With its double slat chrome grille, multi-spoke diamond-cut alloy wheels, and two-tone front and rear bumpers, its dominant road presence makes it stand out everywhere.

Live Limitless

ISUZU is well known around the world for making engines that stand for strength. Durable, reliable, and fuel-efficient are just some of the traits associated with ISUZU engines, which are proudly ‘engineered for life’. The 3.0 litre Ddi VGS Turbo Hi-Power engine in the new mu-X provides a maximum power of 130 kW (177 PS) along with a flat torque curve, which give it smooth and superior performance even at low RPMs. On the other hand, its advanced anti-friction induction hardened cylinder bores, heavy-duty steel timing chain, graphite coated pistons and other special design features ensure that the new ISUZU mu-X outmuscles everything else on the road.

Take on the world

The mu-X loves to flex its muscles on a daredevil adventure from time to time. It goes from a highway cruiser to an off-roading beast within seconds with the ‘Shift-on-the-fly’ 4×4 select dial with low and high range. Its excellent ground clearance, superior approach, departure and breakover angles give the confidence to explore any kind of terrain. Featuring a double wishbone front suspension, a heavy duty gearbox and a wide track with long wheel base for extra stability, in addition to the front steel underbody plates for protection, the mu-X has all the muscle needed to take on any adventure.

Live fearless

The ISUZU mu-X is an SUV that’s designed for both the individual as well as the family at its heart. Its high tensile steel body with tailor-welded blanks and crumple zones with anti-intrusion bars make it a protective cocoon, keeping the occupants safe from the dangers on the road. It is also equipped with the modern and sophisticated active and passive safety features. Equipped with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control System (TCS), 4 Channel 4 Sensor ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) with EBD (Electronic Brake force Distribution), and sensors that actively monitor driving conditions, these active safety systems keep the mu-X in full control on every terrain. On the other hand, passive features like dual front airbags, front seat belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters, and 3 ISOFIX child seat anchorage provide superior protection during unfavourable conditions.

Feels like home

The ISUZU mu-X isn’t just a spacious 7-seater SUV, but also an SUV with a big heart. With its soft leather seats, adjustable headrests for all seats and a comfortable third row, everyone travelling along, whether kids or grandparents, will never be short of comfort. The one touch split/fold seats in both, the second and third row, make sure that there is enough room for the whole family including luggage when travelling for a long vacation. It also features a twin cockpit design with easily accessible controls for both, the driver and the front passenger. In addition to these, the Penta-Link rear suspension provides excellent comfort for all passengers, while the supremely spacious cabin features a number of smart storage compartments. So no matter where it goes, the mu-X always feels like home.

Stardom for Seven

With an array of features designed for comfort and convenience, the new ISUZU mu-X is almost like a personal air-conditioned theatre on wheels. While the mu-X is busy conquering the terrain, the passengers stay fully entertained in the rear with the roof-mounted 10-inch DVD entertainment monitor and great surround sound. The driver seat too features 6-way power adjustable control for prolonged comfort even on long road trips.

ISUZU. An Unstoppable Zest

A true icon of Japanese automotive engineering, ISUZU is bolstered by a legacy that spans over a hundred years. With operations in 25 countries, it is a true global brand that is coveted in over 100 countries worldwide. Manufactured with the promise of ‘engineered for life’, today the ISUZU name is synonymous with reliability, durability and long lasting vehicles. Renowned for their fuel efficiency, ISUZU vehicles are also powerful and adventurous to the core. Staying true to this philosophy, ISUZU has grown into a brand that is adored not just by adventure seekers but also by those who believe in superior automotive engineering and unmatched style in their vehicles.

Michelin Tyre Pic-1MICHELIN brings Scorcher tyre range for Harley-Davidson® motorcycles to India

 

MICHELIN® Scorcher 31: This tyre range was recently type-approved as accessory fitment for the Harley-Davidson Touring range and is fitted as original equipment on nearly all Harley-Davidson Sportster® and Dyna® models. The MICHELIN Scorcher 31 showcases three key attributes: grip, resistance to wear and maneuverability.

Its exclusive tread pattern was purposely designed to improve road holding and facilitate the clearance of water. Its compound – which incorporates Michelin’s latestgeneration synthetic polymers – generates excellent grip, particularly on damp surfaces. In the bigger sizes, the use of aramid fibres guarantees robustness without increasing weight.

The ingredients used for the compound and the specific manufacturing process for this tyre combine to make it strong and durable, while at the same time offering agile handling and remarkable stability, even at high speed.These tyres come with the special Amplified Density Technology (ADT)which hasa rigid, high density carcass for enhanced agility and feedback, plus effective protection against punctures.

MICHELIN Scorcher 11: The first radial tyre intended for the Harley-Davidson Sportster SuperLow®, XR® 1200, V-Rod® Muscle® and Night Rod® Special models was the MICHELIN Scorcher 11 tyre which drew its inspiration from the firm’sHypersport ranges.

Its semi-slick tread maximises the contact patch with the ground, and aramid tread plies reduce weight while resisting centrifugal growth. Its profile ensures responsive performance and stability at high speed. Its compound features MICHELIN SRT (Silica Rain Technology) which delivers optimum grip on damp or wet roads, as well as longer life.

The sixMichelin Scorcher range tyres are available across the country at all Michelin authorized dealers in addition to the Harley Davidson network in India.
