Dubai Police Adds Porsche 918 Spyder To Its Fleet

Dubai Police Adds Porsche 918 Spyder To Its Fleet

The Dubai Police department has just added the Porsche 918 Spyder to its fleet of police cars. Yes, the 918 Spyder. It’s become old hat for the country’s police force to add supercars and luxury cars to its garage, but this one’s on another level. It’s one thing to dress up a Lamborghini Aventador or an Audi R8 with the country’s official police garb; it’s another to do it on a limited-run, hybrid supercar. That’s just flexing your arm for the sake of showing off those muscles.

In any event, the dressed up, white 918 Spyder was unveiled at the 2015 Dubai Motor Show wearing the traditional dark green liveries of the Dubai police force. No other modifications were made because there’s really no point in doing so. Seeing a Porsche 918 Spyder in this cosmetic configuration is all the car needs to emphasize the fact that, outside of its counterparts in Abu Dhabi, there isn’t a police department that can boast the kind of police cars that the Dubai police has.

Granted, none of these supercars - not the Aventador, R8, or this 918 Spyder - will ever be used for actual police duty. A close look at the Porsche hybrid exotic even reveals the absence of police lights on the roof. Instead, the 918 Spyder will be used extensively for marketing purposes, similar to how its predecessors were used when they were first unveiled. It may be a publicity stunt for all intents and purposes, but make no mistake, this the Dubai Police’s way of telling people what it’s capable of when drivers disobey motoring laws in the country.

Who knows, if a reckless driver proves to be too difficult to catch for the department’s regular police cars, it may just unleash this bad boy on the unsuspecting perp.

2014 Porsche 911 Carrera NSW Police Car

2014 Porsche 911 Carrera NSW Police Car

When it comes to police cars, Dubai is by far the city with the coolest fleet of paddy wagons. The local police department is packed with vehicles such as the Aston Martin One-77, Brabus G63 AMG, Lamborghini Aventador and the Ferrari FF. Definitely not a city in which you would want to break the law or attempt to evade the boys in blue. But Dubai isn’t the only municipality patrolled by sports cars or insanely-fast sedans. Italy has a police-spec Lambo Huracan, and the Brits use a Lotus Evora S and a McLaren 12C.

Australia, who has its own cool police cruiser in the Holden Commodore-based HSV GTS, has just received a brand-new toy in the form of a Porsche 911 Carrera. Provided by the company’s Australian arm as part of a partnership with the New South Wales Police Force, the German sports car won’t be used for highway duties, as its performance numbers might indicate. Instead, it will be used to raise awareness among younger drivers and as a show car during various events. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it’s a shame this gorgeous sports car won’t get some proper highway action.

Video: Trial Version Of A Police Modified Porsche Panamera Turbo

Fighting crime and protecting civilians has never been a glamorous job. But just because life as a police officer comes in a perpetual state of danger, it doesn’t meant that the law can’t ride in style.

Imagine being a police officer in the UK and you get handed the keys to an Oakley-designed Porsche Panamera Turbo police car. Yeah, you’d be doing back flips too. Unfortuantely, this Panamera Turbo police vehicle isn’t a legally-sanctioned one but is only a test unit.

But to illustrate exactly how a Panamera can be tuned to become a crime-busting cruiser, Oakley decided to lower the car, strip it down, modify it with carbon fiber, and give it a platter of new features including a brand new titanium exhaust, magnesium alloy wheels and a performance upgrade that boosts the Panamera Turbo’s power to 580hp.

But even if this car isn’t a licensed police cruiser, the mere sight of it out on the road should give would-be speeders second thoughts on putting the pedal to the metal. You wouldn’t want this car to be consistently occupying space on your rear view mirror.

Porsche 911 Police Edition

Porsche 911 Police Edition

A while ago there were some countries in Europe used the Porsche 911 to track down speedy offenders. This was particularly effective in Porsche’s home country of Germany, where the limitless autobahn needed a quick car to track down non-speed based offenders. But are the bad guys getting away so fast in Alabama that it really needs its own 911 police car?

While it probably doesn’t take a Porsche to catch a ‘jacked-up’ truck, the latest addition to the Hoover, Alabama (just outside of Birmingham) Police fleet still serves a good purpose. The car is from a drug seizure, and Chief Nick Derzis said the Porsche will be taken to schools and special events. "There is so much dramatization of drug dealers, fast colors, money," Derzis said. "I think this is the perfect result that you will see, if you’re doing something like that and we can prove it, we can seize your automobile as this Porsche has been seized."

The Hoover PD isn’t just using this for public relations; this 911 is a fully functioning police car. So remember to slow down while going through the Birmingham area unless you want to see this Porsche up close.

Contrary to the general economic trend, tuning is gaining in popularity in Germany. Car enthusiasts spend 4.4 billion euros each year on the personalization of their vehicles. And the trend continues. Although reputable tuning companies place strong emphasis on dependability, safety and responsibility, the market abounds with inferior and often illegal products and supposedly inexpensive pirated copies, ranging from spoilers to rims.
