The Porsche 911 has arrived in India in two variants – 911 Carrera S and the 911 Carerra S Cabriolet.
The new Porsche 911 is powered by a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged petrol engine that generates an additional 30bhp over its predecessor, for a total of 444bhp and 530Nm of torque. The upgraded engine comes mated to a new eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The new Carrera S is capable of sprinting from 0 -100kmph in just 3.7-seconds and is just about 0.1-seconds slower than the Carrera 4S that does three digit figures in 3.6-seconds. Add the optional Sport Chrono Package and the vehicle will touch the 100kmph mark faster by 0.2-seconds. The Carrera S is capable of reaching a top speed of 308kmph, while the Carrera 4S has a top speed of 306kmph.
Exterior and Design
The new 911 Carrera has retained its iconic styling with mild tweaks for freshness. The vehicle now gets a wide body look which was earlier limited to the older generation all-wheel drive and turbo model cars. The rear section now flaunts a distinctive full-length light strip. Moreover, this time the 911 is offered with a 20/21-inch wheel setup on the front and the rear.
Interior and Features
The new Carrera S offers a fine balance of modern technology and iconic styling. The centre console gets a 10.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system and drive mode selector on the steering wheel. The vehicle gets an analogue central tachometer to retain its heritage touch. As for safety, it gets autonomous emergency braking, wet driving mode, night vision and adaptive cruise control as standard.
