The facelift of the Porsche 911 Carrera and 911 Carrera S is now official. Beyond aesthetics, the main change relates to the adoption of a twin-turbo 6-cylinder engine in both versions.
S was one of the novelties of Frankfurt Motor Show to take place in just over ten days. This is the facelift of the 911 winning some very discrete aesthetic changes but are felt.
At the front a new bumper provided with active air intakes , which can be opened or closed as needs, plus some new headlights seen. In the posterior region are more significant changes visually, and winning some new headlights with LED technology and a new bumper that seems inspired by the 911 Turbo.
Inside have a new system of information and entertainment Porsche Communication Management, which comes standard with 7 inch and enhanced functionality, plus a new steering wheel fitted with a mode selector driving.
The new Porsche 911 type 991 says goodbye to atmospheric engines.
But the biggest news has to do with mechanics, since both 911 Carrera and the 911 Carrera S now use the same 6-cylinder engine, but biturbo . 911 more basic earned a bi-turbo 3.0-liter that produces 370 hp , which means an increase of 20 hp compared with the previous model, while the 911 Carrera S gets the same engine but with the modified compressors, specific exhaust system and a new electronic management, allowing you to achieve an output of 420 horsepower , also with an increase of 20 hp over the outgoing model.
If the potential difference seems small, the higher gain compared to naturally aspirated units is in the torque, which rises in both cases at 60 Nm. The 911 Carrera has 450 Nm of torque, while the 911 Carrera S has 500 Nm , both of which are delivered steadily from 1,700 rpm to 5,000 rpm and can rotate up to 7500 rpm .
All these modifications powerplants, as you will realize or are associated with a substantial increase in power, but to improve emissions to meet today’s demanding standards.
But after that you also meant an improvement in the level of benefits, which in the case of Carrera with PDK transmission and Sport Chrono Package l ogre accelerate from 0-100 km / h in 4.2 seconds , while the 911 Carrera S with PDK and Sport Chrono Package covers the same distance in just 3.9 seconds . The maximum speed of both models have also increased: the 911 Carrera achieves 295 km / h, while 911 Carrera S reaches 308 kilometers per hour
All Porsche 911 Carrera now have a new PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) that lowers the ride height by 10mm , further enhancing stability in fast corners. We also have new dampers with wider spread qualities that enhance comfort, while that achieve optimal conditions in dynamic driving .
