H&S Magazine Car Of The Week Issue 40: The New Porsche 911 Carrera-driving into the future.
The New Porsche 911 Carrera
Driving Into The Future.
The new 911 is the sum of its predecessors – and is therefore a reflection of the past and a vision of the future. The silhouette: iconic. The design: timeless. The technology: inspired by great racing victories and always one step ahead. With the eighth generation of the 911, we’re driving into the future.
|450 PS/331 kW||Power (hp)/Power (kW)|
|3.6 s||Acceleration from 0 – 100 km/h|
|3.4 s||Acceleration 0 – 100 km/h with Sport Chrono Package|
|306 km/h||Top speed|
A timeless idea only holds on to its youthful vigour if it is constantly upgraded. So every new generation of the 911 also represents a new start. For an even better 911.
The clear design language of the new 911 and its striking lines are novel and yet familiar. Inside and out. The wide rear end with seamless taillight strip now unites all 911 models. Great clarity even in the interior: this is where classic sports car ergonomics meet the digital possibilities of today.
The new generation of engines is more powerful and even more efficient. The 3.0 litre six-cylinder twin-turbo engine of the 911 Carrera S models produces a full 331kW (450hp). The acceleration is enormous. With the Sport Chrono Package and Launch Control, the 911 Carrera 4S, for example, sprints from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.4 seconds.
The top speed: 306km/h. Forward thrust that gets the new 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) on the road even more effectively. The newly designed Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) increases sporty performance and comfort. Driver assistance systems, such as Lane Keeping Assist, including traffic sign recognition and Night Vision Assist, make driving easier.
Moving with the times. Changing as you go. And remaining true to yourself at the same time. A timeless sports car in the best sense.
The new 911.
