The new Porsche 911 - Faster, Better, Stronger
Porsche 911 - a new generation is born
The night before L.A. Autoshow the new 911 made its world premiere and sets standard for exclusive cars.
Los Angeles - The night before L.A. Autoshow the new 911 made its world premiere. Unmistakably committed to the Porsche design DNA, with a much more muscular look and an interior featuring a 10.9-inch touchscreen monitor, the new 911 is timeless – and also modern.
In a world first, Porsche has developed Wet mode. Included as standard, this function detects water on the road, preconditions the control systems accordingly and warns the driver; the driver can then adjust vehicle settings for a particular emphasis on safety at the push of a button, or by means of the mode switch on the steering wheel (optional Sport Chrono Package).
Of course the new Porsche does not only have new digital features, the turbocharged flat-six engines also enter a new generation with the new 911. New, larger turbochargers with symmetrical layout and electrically controlled wastegate valves, a completely redesigned charge air cooling system and for the first time, use of piezo injectors combine to attain engine improvements in all relevant areas: responsiveness, power, torque characteristic, endurance, revving ability. In addition to performance enhancement of 22 kW (30 PS), achieving 331 kW (450 PS) at 6,500 rpm, the 911 Carrera S engine achieves an extra 30 Nm of torque: 530 Nm in total. This is available within a wide range of speeds, from 2,300 to 5,000 rpm.
