2011 Porsche Cayenne Sneak Peek

So we snuck around to the back end of Lifestyle Motors and there was no way they could hide these two new über-machines– the 2011 Cayenne S and Turbo! We heard that they were on the port some time ago in the process of being cleared and rumor has it that the black Turbo, with a 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds, is already spoken for.

BMW X6 Launch

A fusion of muscle and muse, raw power and stylish looks, beauty and the beast– this was the theme behind the launch of BMW’s latest SAC or Sports Activity Coupé, the X6 at the Moka Golf Course in Maraval, Trinidad. As a concept, the combination seems highly polarized– take a sport coupé shape and give it SUV practicality. In the X6, oddly enough, the idea works.

ENEOS Media Launch

Japan's largest oil company Nippon Petroleum has launched its ENEOS brand of products in T&T. The brand ENEOS spells out E for "energy" and the Greek word NEOS meaning "new". An interesting and little known fact is that most Japanese brand cars are filled with oils, fluids and lubricants made by Nippon Petroleum. ENEOS oils are lab created and feature nano technology. There's even a stable 0W-50 grade oil which as yet is unheard of and a rotary-specific blend!

Porsche 911 Launch -Jan09

Location: Lifestyle Motors, San Juan Trinidad

Lifestyle Motors' Porsche brand re-launch and official unveiling of T&T's first Porsche 911 took place at Lifestyle Headquarters in Barataria last night. Brian Mc Farlane Design completely transformed the showroom into a spectacular display worthy of the brand. Miss T&T '08 Gabrielle Walcott did the honors of presenting the new 2009 Porsche 911 Carrera S to the 200+ specially invited guests who were also treated to complimentary drinks and a wide array (7+) of hors d'oeuvres and specially prepared sandwiches by chef Bernard Long. Also on display was the ever-so-throaty 2009 Porsche Cayenne GTS. After the formalities we spoke to MD Bernard Hadeed, Sales Manager Kishore Angard, Regional Manager Danny Cuke (Barbados) and Gabrielle Walcott for their takes on the Porsche brand and the new 385hp, PDK-equipped 911. We also managed to get a few comments from notable attendees and enthusiasts like Terry Bhagwansingh and even the chef Bernard Long!
