The silhouette of the 911 stands for timeless design. But the new 911 also proves how contemporary it is, especially from behind. The rear end is powerfully, clearly and precisely designed. The rear screen appears visually extended and merges, almost seamlessly, into the black tailgate grille.
The new, vertical, third brake light is integrated into this. Directly beneath are the seamless light strip, between the three-dimensional LED taillights, and the newly designed model logo in Light Silver. The rear apron surrounds the newly designed tailpipes of the exhaust system. The new 911 also appears particularly athletic due to the differently sized wheels at the front and rear. A design that unites traditional and modern. That ensures more dynamism on the road. And causes a sensation for everyone who follows the 911.
The power output and efficiency of the horizontally opposed engine have been once again increased in the new 911. The engine mounts have also been positioned closer to the centre of the vehicle. This reduces vibrations and increases driving stability.
But you will still feel the power of the 3.0-litre sixcylinder twin-turbo engine with its 331kW (450hp) we promise. The maximum torque of 530Nm alone will make sure of that. On this basis, the new 911 Carrera 4S reaches 100km/h with Sport Chrono Package and Launch Control in a mere 3.4 seconds. The top speed is not achieved until 306km/h.
The interior clearly emphasises the horizontal. All relevant operating controls are located, within grasp, to the left and right of the multifunction sports steering wheel. For great operating comfort and therefore full concentration on the road. Directly in view: the instrument cluster with analogue rev counter and two high-resolution 7˝ displays. They provide all the essential car information on virtual instruments. Right beside this: the high-resolution 10.9˝ touchscreen display of Porsche Communication Management (PCM) including online navigation.
A new kind of familiar. And a familiar kind of new. Interior. The elevated centre console is decoupled from the dashboard and, like the finishes on the dashboard and door panels, underlines the horizontal orientation of the interior. With the Porsche Advanced Cockpit control concept, it now houses only a few, partially touch-sensitive, buttons. Above this are five buttons, which have been consciously kept as analogue buttons, for direct access to the essential functions of drive and chassis.
Tradition meets future: we don’t see it as a compromise. But as the best of both worlds.
