The new Porsche 911 Turbo S features a turbocharged 3.8-litre flat-six engine producing 560 horsperpower.

The much-anticipated 2014 911 Turbo S (Type 991) has arrived at Porsche Center Winnipeg, but better hurry if you want to see it. It's the only one the dealership is scheduled to receive this year and, if it isn't sold by the time you read this, it probably soon will be.

The new 991 model is both wider than its predecessor and packs more punch. Powered by a turbocharged 3.8-litre flat-six engine producing 560 hp (10 more than before) and 519 lb.-ft. of torque, it can go from 0 to 100 km in 3.1 seconds.

Sales rep Esther Zacharias said another key feature is a new rear-axle steering system that provides unmatched handling abilities. At lower speeds, she noted, the front and rear wheels turn opposite to each other, shortening the wheelbase by 250 mm, and sharpening the turning radius. At speeds above 50 mph, the system steers the rear wheels parallel to the turned front wheels providing better stability and cornering.

Zacharias added that the car's new active aerodynamics system consists of a retractable three-stage front spoiler and a deployable rear wing with three adjustable positions.

Standard features inside are a set of Sport Seats Plus seats with 18-way adjustment and position memory, a Bose Surround Sound audio system, radar-controlled cruise control system, camera-based road sign recognition and speed-limit recognition.

The Turbo S (991) sells for $222,000.

Nott introduces new leasing division

Nott Autocorp has announced the opening of its new Luxury Leasing Canada Corporation.

"We had been planning this for some time," said Nott Autocorp founder/president Trevor Nott. "There's a need for more flexible leasing terms.

"Leases in the industry usually range from 48-60 months. Our leasing terms range from 24-36 months. That gives us and our customers the flexibility to turn over vehicles more quickly and help customers save on taxes."

Nott suggested that his new leasing program is better for new immigrants and exchange students. He thinks the new leasing program will also appeal to small-business owners for fleet leasing and personal leasing.

Nott Autocorp has also appointed recent University of Manitoba Asper School of Business graduate Paul Dueck as customer retention manager and assistant finance manager, and Gerald Boulet as service manager.

"I have known Paul for quite a while," Nott said. "I was just waiting for him to graduate."

Boulet, long-time service manager at a Winnipeg import store, worked in service in Calgary for a period of time before returning to run his own service business here.

"Gerald will be overseeing the expansion and upgrading of our service area," Nott said.

New general sales manager at Winnipeg Dodge Chrysler

Ralph Wasserberg, an 11-year industry veteran, is the new general sales manager at Winnipeg Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram. Wasserberg has been in sales and management with different Manitoba Chrysler stores throughout his career.

"I had an opportunity to join the staff of the top-selling Chrysler dealer in Manitoba," he said of his decision to move to Winnipeg Dodge Chrysler. "I figured, why not go with the champs.

"Winnipeg Dodge Chrysler is a great store and a great place to be."
