New Porsche 911 992 gets the Chris Harris treatment
It’s the video review we’ve been waiting for
The new Porsche 911 is not so new by now, with Porsche having already presented the open-top 911. However, the first video reviews have been popping up on YouTube, and it’s the one orchestrated by Chris Harris that caught our eye.
It has also been imagined as a base-spec, cheap model, and in Targa guise. But such digital tricks aside, we’re interested in how it drives and feels. Which is exactly the answer provided by the video below.
For those of you not up to date with the latest 911 developments, here’s a quick reminder. The new Porsche 911 uses a 3-liter, straight-six turbocharged engine that outputs 331 kW (450 PS, 444 hp).
Married to the engine is a PDK eight-speed gearbox. In this setup the rear-wheel-drive Carrera S reaches 100 km/h from a standstill in 3.7 seconds, while the all-wheel-drive Carrera 4S does the same interval in 3.6 seconds.
But enough with the chatter, here’s what Top Gear’s Chris Harris has to say about the new Porsche 911.
