A.I. Motokinisi Group, officially announced the arrival of the new Porsche 911.
The Porsche 911 is now entering the eighth generation. It continues to set the standard when it comes to exclusive sportiness. Unmistakably committed to the Porsche design DNA, a much more muscular look and an interior featuring a 10.9-inch touchscreen monitor, the new 911 is timeless – and modern.
This generation of flat-six turbocharged engines has been further developed and is more powerful than ever before, with 450 PS in the S models. Additional highlights include the new assistance systems, including Porsche Wet mode to make driving on wet roads even safer, and Night Vision Assist, with a thermal imaging camera, as well as comprehensive connectivity, which now also uses swarm intelligence. The 911’s features are rounded off by three exclusive digital offerings: the Porsche Road Trip app for extraordinary tours, the Porsche 360+ personal assistant and the web-based Porsche Impact emissions calculator for neutralising your individual carbon footprint.
Carrera S models start from 450 PS
The turbocharged flat-six engine of the 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S now produces 450 PS (+30 PS, compared with the previous model. The rear-wheel-drive Coupé needs 3.7 seconds to bit 100km/h and the 911 Carrera 4S (with all-wheel drive) just 3.6 seconds. The top speeds are now 308 km/h (911 Carrera S) and 306 km/h for the all-wheel-drive version. The fuel consumption (NEDC-correlated) of the 911 Carrera S is 8.9 l/100 km, while the 911 Carrera 4 S records this figure as 9.0 l/100 km.
Clear design language, unmistakable identity
The exterior design is completely new and emphasises the leap in performance for the 911 type 992. Significantly wider wheel housings arch over the 20-inch front wheels and 21-inch rear wheels. The rear end is now the same width across all models, highlighting the slim-line centre section. At the front, the body is 45 mm wider. Apart from the front and rear sections, the entire outer skin is now made from aluminium.
The completely new interior is characterised by the clear and straight lines of the dashboard, with recessed instruments. The 911 models from the 1970s provided the inspiration here. Alongside the central rev counter – typical for Porsche – two thin, frameless freeform displays supply information to the driver. In terms of digitalisation, the 911 takes the next step into the future, with permanent connectivity, as well as new functions and services.
New assistance systems increase safety and comfort
In a world-first, Porsche has developed Wet mode, included as standard. This function detects water on the road and warns the driver, who can then set up the vehicle on safety mode. Night Vision Assist, with a thermal imaging camera, is optionally available for the 911 for the first time. The adaptive cruise control option includes automatic distance control, a stop-and-go function, reversible occupant protection and an innovative, autonomous Emergency Assist function.
