Porsche unveils its Facebook edition with the 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid
Social media has truly gone revolutionary. From politics to fashion to gossip, it has revolutionlised the way news travels and how people think. In honor of its 1 million Facebook followers, luxury car-makers Porsche has taken this a notch higher and has unveiled a special edition model by coming out with a special exhibition at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, solely dedicated to a unique custom-made 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid. Their commitment to their fans is evident on the exterior, which has been adorned with signatures of over 27,000 Porsche fans on Facebook. We are not sure how they chose the 27,000, but that’s a feat if you ask us.
The model which will just be an exhibit piece, will boast the company’s new Porsche Intelligent Performance program, making it ideal to be chosen to honor the company’s growing fan base on Facebook. The hybrid racer comes with a 4.0-liter flat-six engine that delivers 480 horsepower and is combined with two electric motors that each develops 69 kW and an electrical flywheel power generator located in the cockpit right next to the driver.
If you’re a fan, take a glimpse of this racecar, open every Tuesday to Sunday from 9 am to 6 pm with an 8 euros ($10.8) admission for adults with a free pass for children up to 14 years old if they are accompanied by an adult. Next up, Twitter? At just over 8000 followers, I suppose it will be a while.
