There’s no doubt whenever a new generation of Porsche 911 comes out, it’s worth the hype. Everyone, whether they are car aficionados or not, know the Porsche 911. The two-door German sports car has been in the automobile industry and hearts since 1963. The Porsche 911 has an iconic silhouette and timeless design. No wonder the car is a crowd pleaser for celebrity gearheads like Jay Leno and Jerry Seinfeld, and has been on screen as well, like in Gone in 60 Seconds, The Wolf of Wall Street, and Atomic Blonde. It just oozes a sophisticated cool.
Something old, something new
The eighth generation (992) of the 911 is a reflection of the decades past of innovative design and ingenuity, as well as a look into the future. The new iteration has that timeless 911 look, yet is still contemporary. All the classic design elements of a 911 are still there: the flyline with a longer, flatter lid, a steeply inclined windscreen, and a gentle rearward sloping roof line. The powerful rear is an iconic part of the design as well, notably the straight lines with horizontal orientation. Simple and clean.
Among the droolworthy new models is the Carrera S, which has 443 hp max power, can hit 60 mph in 3.3 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package, and has a top track speed of 191 mph. The engines of the 911 models all have twin-turbo configurations, which means exceptional power in all speeds, excellent responsiveness, and a wide torque plateau. In other words, incredible performance that responds to you in a snap.
The interior is just as luxurious as its exterior. The horizontal orientation seen in the car’s rear is mirrored inside. You’ll easily find all your relevant operating controls within grasp, on the left and right of the steering wheel. This design was something that set the first three generations of the 911 apart. The 911 also packs quite the punch of sound. The BOSE Surround Sound System is fully active and features 12 loudspeakers and amplifier channels, including a 100-watt active subwoofer. Bring the concert to you! An optional Burmester High-End Surround Sound System is also available. The Porsche Connect app, which is the digital interface to your Porsche, lets you sync your destinations and calendar with your car. You can plan trips using real-time traffic information, track your car and control certain functions with your phone, and more. Learn More
