Porsche 911 Carrera S in Crayon on the Race Track

Wider, faster, more emotional – the Porsche 911 is entering the new generation with a host of new developments. The design and interior combine classic styling with completely new solutions. The new PASM chassis with wider track widths features wheels with different diameters on the front and rear axles for the first time. The turbocharged flat-six engine of the Porsche 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S produces 331 kW (450 PS) thanks to optimisations both within and outside the engine. This corresponds to an increase of 22 kW (30 PS). The power is delivered by a completely newly developed eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. The steering is even more direct and the brakes are also more responsive. The 911 is setting new records: a 911 Carrera S has completed the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring in just 7:25 minutes – five seconds faster than the previous model. Both new 911s come in below the four-second mark for acceleration from zero to 100 km/h, with the Porsche 911 Carrera S taking 3.7 seconds, and the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S with all-wheel drive 3.6 seconds; each model is 0.4 seconds quicker than its predecessor. Both models are a further 0.2 seconds faster with the optional Sport Chrono Package. The fuel consumption (NEDC-correlated) of the 911 Carrera S is 8.9 l/100 km, while the 911 Carrera 4S records this figure as 9.0 l/100 km. The exterior design is completely new and emphasises the leap in performance for this generation of 911. In future, the rear-wheel-drive Porsche 911 Carrera S will also have the all-wheel-drive model body that is 44 mm wider at the rear. Both models are 45 mm wider at the front axle. Between the new LED headlights, a bonnet with a pronounced recess evokes the design of the first 911 generations. The almost flush integration of the electrical pop-out door handles emphasises the tapered and smooth side contour. The rear spoiler is dominated by a significantly wider rear wing and seamless, elegant light bar spanning the entire width of the vehicle. Apart from the front and rear sections, the entire outer skin is now made from aluminium.
