The Porsche 911 has seen seven incarnations — but the 8th has finally arrived. This video gives you an early look at the Porsche 911 (992 Generation) and it does not disappoint. Henry Catchpole takes us through every inch — from the new gearshift to the updated, but still beautifully analog display to the stunning new exterior, it is a work of art. While certain parts of the car, especially the rear design, have a slightly more modern edge, it is undeniably true to that classic 911 style. If you’re car fan generally, a Porsche enthusiast, or just love a stunning piece of design, then it’s definitely worth taking a few minutes to drool over the new Porsche 911.
You can see every nook, cranny, and immaculately-planned leather detail here:
More interested in what’s going on under the hood? “The Carrera S and 4S models use a turbocharged flat-six with 444bhp – 30bhp more than the 991 generation,” Car Magazine says. “The S accelerates to 62mph in 3.7 seconds, with the all-wheel-drive 4S hitting it in 3.6 seconds. Power is sent to the wheels by a new eight-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic, which will help keep emissions down. There’s no official mention of a manual yet, but don’t worry – it will still be available. If you pick the Sport Chrono Pack (which has launch control), 0.2 seconds can be shaved off the launch sprints of either. Top speeds are rated at 191mph for the S and 190 for the 4S. If you’re bothered, Porsche also claims that the S and 4S models can get up to 31.7mpg and 31.4mpg respectively.”
Not too shabby.
