Overview

With the entire world going ‘green,’ it should be no surprise that exclusive cars would follow the pack eventually. Porsche is no exception, and is now offering Hybrid models in addition to their traditional combustion engines. The Porsche 911 Carrera S is the very identity of the company, even into the 21st century. Originally made for the racetrack, it boasts over 28,000 victories. It continues to attract attention, on and off the road, just like it did in 1963.

911

Over 90% of the 911’s components have been either fundamentally revised or are brand new innovations. This is the company’s way of staying ahead of the pack and offering superior quality and performance. Apparently, they are doing a good job; a longer wheelbase, combined with a fuel-efficient engine and a lightweight body creates a masterpiece that can’t be rivaled anywhere else. Others have tried, and failed. Superior performance and maximum style are available for a mere $96,400.

Exterior

The 911 is one of the easiest models to spot; even a child can recognize it. Some of the most distinctive features are the wings that that are higher than the front lid, adding muscle to the rear. The wheelbase is 4 inches longer than previous models, giving superior cornering dynamics and driving stability. It has a more compact look, now that the overhand is shorter at the rear and front. There is no question as to the temperament of this car. The exterior mirrors are mounted on the doors for improved aerodynamics. All in all, one can’t deny the sporty and sleek look that is the very definition of the Porsche 911.

Interior

The steering wheel is defined, of course, by the Porsche insignia that seems to overtake everything else. The comprehensive instrument panel and state-of-the-art sensors tell the driver everything they need to know in order to arrive safely, in the fastest time possible. The interior is geared toward the driver’s maximum benefit and support.

Engine/Tech Spec

0 – 60 mph in 4.3 seconds

The engine features 6 horizontally opposed cylinders, with a 3.4 litre engine, and 350 hp.

Improved fuel efficiency and increased power are achieved via the VarioCam Plus and direct fuel injection systems.

The total fuel consumption has been decreased by 16%. This is due to the complete redevelopment of the engine’s peripherals and innovative technologies to improve efficiency.

The Porsche Torque Vectoring is a standard feature and increases the overall dynamic performance. For the first time, dynamic engine mounts are being offered on the 911, which provide more stability and better corner handling.

Some of the other standard features on this model include an auto start/stop function, intelligent thermal management and electrical system recuperation.

The single tailpipes are a new function and emit sounds that only a Porsche can, identifying the car before even seeing it.

The 19” wheels improve performance and stability.

The company proves that safety and sportiness are not mutually exclusive, with the Porsche Stability Management system and Bi-Xenon headlights, as well as four-piston fixed calipers in monobloc aluminum.
