Benefits A Friend Indeed
A Friend Indeed is a non-profit company which assists its customers with a complete range of affordable, high-quality, home repair, maintenance, and building services. We invest 80% of all contributions into low to moderate income neighborhoods with an objective to make lives more livable by repairing, rebuilding, enhancing, or building homes and communities with construction assistance.
Established in 2003, A Friend Indeed has partnered with other relief teams through-out the country. In New Orleans, post hurricane Katrina, our organization helped revitalize and rebuild the seventh ward by reconstructing homes, churches, and community centers. We built a youth camp in Alaska, and here in Arizona we assisted in providing and constructing temporary shelter for homeless, single, pregnant, mothers who faced uncertainty towards child birth. These are just a few examples of the valuable work being accomplished through A Friend Indeed and its supporters.
In a fund raising effort A Friend Indeed has decided to raffle off a 2010 Porsche GT3 (sponsored in part by PENSKE Porsche North Scottsdale). The 2010 Porsche GT3 has received rave reviews and the demand for this vehicle is very high. Only a handful of these vehicles will be imported to the United States and A Friend Indeed (with the help of PENSKE) has secured one of the few.
The 2010 911 GT3 is powered by a 3.8-liter (boxer) six-cylinder naturally-aspirated engine that develops maximum output of 435 bhp @ 7,660 rpm, up 20 bhp over its predecessor. The new GT3 accelerates from a standstill to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds and reaching 100 mph in 8.3 seconds. Top speed is an aero-limited 193 mph.
The engine mounts can go from heavy dampers to keep things smooth in the cabin to solid with no flex, transmitting every ounce of power to the wheels. That power gets routed through a suspension designed with stiffer springs and anti-roll bars while ride comfort is unaffected. That suspension comes with threaded components that can be adjusted for ride height, track width and camber. It’s springs are stiffer than any Carrera’s, but it now comes with Porsche’s PASM electronically variable shocks. It will also come standard with 19-inch center-lock wheels.
For the first time the 911 GT3 comes with a particularly sporting variant of PSM Porsche Stability Management, offering the option to deactivate both Stability Control (SC) and Traction Control (TC) in separate steps.
The new GT3 offers even better grip and stability also at high speeds, specific modifications of the car’s aerodynamics increasing down-forces both front and rear to such an extent that the overall pressure pushing down the car is more than twice as great as on the former model. At the same time the new Aerodynamics Package gives the GT3 a brand-new look further accentuated by the new bi-xenon headlights, LED rear light clusters, as well as modified air intakes and outlets.
The GT3 holds an interesting place in the lineup because it is the fastest naturally-aspired car Porsche makes and some drivers prefer the GT3 over turbo models. This GT3 is quieter and with better ride control than previous models and again makes the 0 to 60 mph sprint in four seconds and has a top speed of 194 mph. This represents only 0.3 of a second slower to 60 mph and is one mile per hour faster than the current 911 Turbo. Some of Porsche’s professional drivers have felt that the marginal power loss was worth the predictability that was gained by having a non-turbo engine.
