Here’s a couple of Porsche 911s joining the Porsche 911 announced last year. The new sports car from the Germany sports car maker is being launched as a Coupé and Cabriolet. With the Coupé and Cabriolet, expect to be treated to the familiar 911 silouette and 380 HP and 450 Nm (330 lb-ft) of pure adrenalin rush, courtesy of its 3.0L inline six boxer engine with biturbo charging.
In addition to having more power (about 15 HP) over its predecessor, the new Carrera also benefits from a new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK) which enables it to wipe the century sprint in just 4.2 seconds and on its way to a top speed of 293 km/h (182 mph). For the fuel conscious, you will be glad that it is quite frugal in economy, doing 9L/100 km (31.4 mpg) and 9.2L/100 km (30.7 mpg) on the Coupé and Cabriolet, respectively. ‘Frugal’ in sports car speaks, that is.
An optional Sport Chrono Package will be available for those who is looking to shave 0.2 seconds off the sprint. Btw, that’s not a typo. It is just 0.2s which, personally, I don’t see the point. Then again, what do I know, right?
Other highlights include a new high-quality interior with 10.9-inch touchscreen display, comprehensive connectivity, innovative assistance systems like Porsche Wet Mode, 19-inch front alloy wheels wearing 235/40 ZR tires, 20-inch rear wheels shod with 295/35 ZR rubbers, 330 mm brake discs paired to 4-pod monobloc fixed calipers in black, and individual tailpipe covers.
