ATLANTA, FEBRUARY 3, 2005 --- Porsche Engineering Group, a subsidiary of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, has rolled out two very special open two-seaters after several months of development. These prototypes, offering two comfortable seats and ample cargo room, were commissioned by Hans-Peter Porsche, the grandson of the company's founder, Ferdinand Porsche, and created especially for use on the golf course.

This unique golf car not only bears the Porsche logo on its front lid, but is reminiscent of the Porsche Cayenne in many other features - albeit at a scale of 1:2. Measuring 106.3 inches (2.7 meters) in length and 49.2 inches (1.25 meters) in width, this new golf car comes with an exact rendition to the last detail of the Cayenne's engine compartment lid, front wheel arches, headlights, front fascia, and 20-inch wheels. Given the open loading space, the rear section does not have all the visual features and the precise looks of the Cayenne. But even here the oval exhaust tailpipes, the rear lights and the original stainless-steel loading sill carry over striking design features clearly identifying the new golf car as a miniature Cayenne.

The car is powered by a 3.2-bhp electric motor driving the rear wheels through direct transmission and can attain cruising speeds of 19 mph (30 km/h).

Before the two Cayenne-look golf cars were delivered, they were put through their paces on the test track at Porsche's Development Center in Weissach, Germany. Only then, after Porsche's development engineers were fully satisfied with their test candidates, were the cars cleared for delivery to the Spanish island of Majorca, where they will be used on the prestigious Alcanada Golf Course as of spring 2005. No decision has been taken yet whether the Porsche Engineering Group will be building further golf cars, thus offering the "Mini-Cayenne" to golf courses in other parts of the world.

Porsche Engineering Group is a wholly owned subsidiary of Porsche AG that provides engineering services to OEMs and suppliers in the automotive industry around the globe. Its North-American headquarters are based in Troy, Michigan.

Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA), based in Atlanta, Ga., and its subsidiary, Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd., are the exclusive importers of Porsche 911, Boxster and Carrera GT sports cars and Cayenne sport utility vehicles for the United States and Canada. A wholly owned, indirect subsidiary of Dr. Ing. h.c.F. Porsche AG, PCNA employs approximately 250 people who provide Porsche vehicles, parts, service, marketing and training for its 204 U.S. and Canadian dealers. They, in turn, provide Porsche owners with best-in-class service.
