- New 911 on sale now
- Power up to 450 horsepower
- Overhauled interior
Boasting a more muscular look, and a revised interior, Porsche’s flagship promises a mix of cutting-edge technology mixed with the kind of driver involvement that the company prides itself on. It features new engines, better fuel efficiency and a new gearbox, as well as a range of new assistance systems to improve safety.
Codenamed 992, the latest 911 isn’t all-new, but rather is a heavily upgraded version of the 991-generation car that’s been with us since 2011. Looks-wise, it rides on big 20-inch wheels at the front and 21-inchers at the back. All cars are now the same width, changing the historical difference of four-wheel drive models having a wider rear. The door handles sit flush with the bodywork, popping out electrically when needed. New LED headlights give an up-to-date look as well as bright illumination, and the pop-up rear spoiler is considerably wider than before. The rear lights now stretch across the car, much like other models in the Porsche range.
The interior has been completely overhauled, with a 10.9-inch touchscreen in the centre of the dashboard and one analogue dial in the middle of the instrument panel, flanked by a screen either side.
All cars will include a new Wet mode, which detects water on the road, warns the driver and allows the car’s various settings to be tweaked at the push of a button.
Options will include adaptive cruise control and a night vision camera.
Both versions of the new 911 are on sale now, priced from £93,110 RRP for the Carrera S, and £98,418 RRP for the Carrera 4S.
