DALLAS-FORT WORTH, TX, September 03, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Of the top 5 cars of the 20th Century, 2 were designed by Porsche of Stuttgart, Germany. Naturally, you can find both the classic VW Beetle and the Porsche 911 among the fleet at DFW Elite Auto Rental in Ft. Worth, TX.
And to celebrate Dr. Ferdinand Porsche's 134th birthday, the '59 convertible VW and '06 911 Cabriolet are being offered at an irresistible 20% discount from September 3rd to November 3rd, 2009.
"You simply will not find cars that are more fun to drive," says DFW Elite Auto general manager Marissa Collins. "And if you've driven earlier 911s, you have to drive the '06. It's got a wider body, wider tires, an ultra-lightweight fabric top, and all-wheel drive - hugs the road like tights on a ballerina." No wonder that in 2006 Porsche topped both J.D. Power & Associates' Initial Quality Study and the Luxury Institute's auto brand rankings!
The '06 Cabriolet also has a 325 hp, 6-cylinder boxer engine and an astoundingly responsive 5-speed automatic transmission that will make a believer out of even the most diehard manual devotee. All backed by peerless Porsche engineering that has made the 911 the most winning sportscar in history, from the Targa Florio, to the Daytona 24 Hours, Sebring 12 Hours, Nurburgring 1000km, and 24 Hours of LeMans.
"F.A. Porsche was a bona fide genius," observes small business consultant Ron Sturgeon, owner of DFW Elite Auto Rental.com. "He designed the world's first gas/electric hybrid in 1900 and the VW in 1934 before producing cars under his own mark, which is why my personal favorite, the '59 Beetle convertible rental, is included in the special."
Driven by Charles Lindbergh across 4 continents, the late '50s VW is the first "New Beetle", improving on Ferdinand Porsche's original design with independent suspension, expanded front and rear windows, upgraded instrument panel, and reinforced chassis. No wonder that in its day it was the most exported car in the world!
So if you've ever dreamed about cruising in either of these truly classic automobiles, September is your best chance to make that dream come true.
