New family members for the 992 range
Porsche has unveiled two new members of the 911 family.
Porsche is expanding its eighth-generation range with the 911 Carrera. The new sports car is being launched as a Coupe and Cabriolet, and generates 283 kW (385 PS) from its 3.0-litre, six-cylinder boxer engine with biturbo charging. The Carrera is the entry-level 911 model and offers 11 kW (15 PS) more power output than its predecessor did. It shares its standard features unchanged from the 911 Carrera S.
These include the high-quality interior with 10.9-inch touchscreen display, connectivity and systems like the Porsche Wet Mode that ensures handling on wet roads. The 911 Carrera is easy to spot due to the smaller dimensioned wheels and brakes and the individual tailpipe covers on the exhaust system.
The new 911 Carrera uses the 3.0-litre, six-cylinder boxer engine. Power transmission is handled by the new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK). This enables the 911 Carrera Coupé to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds, with a top speed of 293 km/h. The optional Sport Chrono Package shaves a further 0.2 seconds off the sprint. The combined fuel consumption (NEDC-correlated) of the Coupé is 9.0 l/100 km, while the Cabriolet records this figure as 9.2 l/100 km.
The driving dynamics set-up includes 235/40 ZR tyres on 19-inch alloy wheels on the front axle. The mixed tyre configuration features 20-inch wheels with 295/35 ZR tyres at the rear. Stopping power is provided on both axles by 330-millimetre brake discs with black, four-piston monobloc fixed calipers.
The price of the 911 Carrera Coupe starts at 104,655 euros in Germany, and the 911 Carrera Cabriolet at 118,935 euros – with both prices including value-added tax and country-specific equipment. The new models can be ordered now. The all-wheel drive version will be available soon.
