Porsche had helped in the engine development, transmission and interior of the car, which was equipped with a 5-cylinder 2.3-liter engine producing 243 hp, to the front wheels. This power enabled it to do the 0-100 in 5.7 seconds and to have a top speed electronically limited to 240 km/h, which could reach 260 km/h without the limiter.
