In true Porsche fashion, a limited edition Carrera Cup Asia model has been released for the fast-growing Chinese market. The 30 units will be offered in Guard Red, Carrera White and Black, each sporting contrasting accents on the car courtesy of Porsche Racing decals.
A mild performance increase comes from a slight diet, since the Carrera Cup Asia still sports the same power plant seen in the standard Carrera S model with 385-hp and 310 ft-lbs of torque. Helping in the weight loss department are a set of fashionable and lightweight 19-inch wheels. Carrera Cup Asia models will, however, only be offered with Porsche’s 7-speed PDK transmission.
The upgrades continue on the inside with Alcantara-wrapped Recaro seats with an optional carbon fiber backrest. Carbon fiber and red accents can be seen throughout the interior as well.
