At the Geneva Motor Show, Porsche will emphasis more on its return to the highest level of international sports car racing.

The new efficiency-based regulations of the WEC stipulate innovative hybrid drives; the 919 Hybrid can therefore be regarded as a research laboratory for the technology of future Porsche production vehicles. The innovative LMP1 race car will be flanked on the stage in Geneva by the Porsche 911 RSR which will also be racing in all eight rounds of the WEC this season, in the GT category.

Following the global unveiling of the Macan compact SUV last November at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Porsche is presenting the S Diesel model to the public for the first time in Geneva. The Macan S Diesel features a turbocharged 258 hp engine with PDK transmission, and lines up alongside the two petrol-engined models, the 340 hp 3.0-litre V6 Macan S and 400 hp 3.6-litre V6 Macan Turbo. Active all-wheel drive with Porsche Traction Management is standard on all models.

The 911 Targa is also celebrating its European debut next week. The styling cues of this new model pay homage to the original 911 Targa design from 1960s. It features an innovative electric folding centre roof section, and curved glass rear window.
