This is the latest generation Porsche 911. Porsche like to tweak and use the philosophy of …’if it isn’t broken why change it?…….unless we have to!
The main changes are:
A completely new designed TwinTurbo engine. It is still a flat 6 cylinder engine but is now developing 370bhp and the 911 Carrera S now develops 420bhp. In the case of both cars they are producing 20bhp more than the previous models.
From the outside you will notice the visual upgrades.
New headlights with four point daytime running lights.
A completely redesigned engine lid at the back of the car with new rear lights.
If you opt for the PDK gearbox and the sports Chrono package, Porsche engineers also have tweaked those optional extras. 911 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds, Carrera S with PDK gearbox 0-62mph in 3.9 seconds. Both cars are two tenths of a second faster than the previous 911 models.
If you choose the optional extra Sport Chrono package, the new 911 gets a new rotary mode switch on the steering wheel like the Hybrid 918 Spyder. This switch will have four positions for the driver. Normal, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual. With the individual set up you will be able to configure your own vehicle set up, for example Porsche Active Suspension Management, quicker PDK gear changes and sports exhaust. If you opt for the PDK gearbox you will have an additional Sports Response button. When you press this button the vehicle will give you maximum acceleration for 20 seconds.
All new 911 Carreras will now come, as standard, with PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management). This will lower the ride height by 10mm improving the cars handling and cornering.
