2017 Porsche 911 Gets 30 HP Bump, Extra Colors Available in the Range

Not much, but better than nothing

Porsche is selectively blowing the wind of (slight) change throughout its portfolio, but the happiest customers will be those ticking the box next to a Porsche 911 S.

Courtesy of Porsche Exclusive, the whole 911 S spectrum (therefore, the 911 Carrera S, 911 Carrera 4S and 911 Targa 4S models) can optionally receive a power increase kit (starting at €10,139, depending on vehicle equipment) that takes total output 30 hp (22 kW) higher, to 450 hp (331 kW). 

The jump is possible via larger turbos, the Sport Chrono pack and a tweaked braking system spiced up by a sports exhaust system with two central tailpipes. From June 2017, the kit will also be available as a retrofit option for models fitted with the Sport Chrono pack.

Elsewhere, all 911 and 718 models get a new color hue called Crayon, but the four-coat paint Saffron Yellow Metallic is only destined for the Neunelfer.

Last but not least, the 911 Targa S is now available in Aetna Blue with a Graphite Blue interior, while the 911 Turbo and Turbo S also get the same Saffron Yellow Metallic like the regular 911.
