Porsche renews the myth renews 911 . Generation 991, presented at the end of August 2011, gives way to a facelift introduces a major mechanical evolution. Yes, the entry models to the family 911 now have an engine biturbo arriving proposing figures higher power while consumption is reduced, but not, as you can imagine this is not the only change.
New biturbo engines more powerful
Goodbye to atmospheric thrusters 6-cylinder and 3.6-liter. The new engines have 3-liter twin-turbo and are delivered 20 horsepower and 60 Nm more than before.

These figures are supplied torque in a band between 1,700 and 5,000 rpm, meeting with a maximum speed of 7,500 rpm in both models. The power difference between the Carrera and Carrera S comes from the hand of changes in the turbos used in the exhaust system and the electronic management of the engine.
More power, better performance and less consumption:
The arrival of these new engines not only involves the emergence of new power and torque figures, as you would imagine, will have improved performance figures. Have also been improved records as far as consumption is concerned.

The maximum speed is also higher. Career reaches 295 km / h , 6 km / h while the Carrera S registers 308 km / h , 4 km / h.

This driving mode switch lets you choose between “Normal”, “Sport”, “Sport Plus” and “Single” . Each of these modes offers changes in the active suspension PASM , in dynamic engine mounts, change PDK , the response of the engine and sport exhaust system
Changes in the chassis: now standard with active suspension
This renovated 911 now has the active suspension PASM Series , which means, in addition to open up the range of different configurations, a lower height, 10 mm less. For those who fear that this height reduction not be able to fit comfortably in your garage the solution comes with the known lift system front end able to raise the nose of 911 in 40 mm.
and the 911 Turbo GT3 inherited the Carrera S the possibility of an option with a new rear axle steering , improving stability at high speeds and improved maneuverability low speeds.
The wheels are also new in the rear axle of the Carrera S stumbled upon passing a greater width of 295 mm to 305 mm.
