Once again, everything is at stake. The Porsche 911 is setting a new standard. Porsche has created a sports car like one never seen before; a sports car that has fascinated for generations. The 911 is a vehicle that is our passion.
Now, be the first to witness the unveiling of the all new Porsche 911. We invite you to join us as we reveal the next generation in ingenuity.
Developed completely from scratch, the six-cylinder twin-turbo engines of the 911 Carrera and Targa 4 models with a displacement of 3.0 litres embrace this principle and perfect it in a forwardlooking way. To be more precise: tremendous acceleration force even in the low rpm range is supplemented by the engine map of a 911 Carrera with the high rev limits typical of a sports car. In other words, high compression and a high engine speed combined with good modulation of power output and surprisingly low fuel consumption, thanks to the reduced overall displacement.
Expressed in figures, this means an extra 20 hp of power, an extra 43 lb.-ft. of torque and engine speeds of up to 7,500 rpm. And a considerable reduction in fuel consumption of up to 13 %.
The engine of the 911 Carrera and 911 Targa 4 models develops 370 hp. The maximum torque of 325 lb.-ft. is available from as low as 1,700 rpm. With Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), the 911 Carrera can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 293 km/h.
Sports Exhaust System
It’s a first for any Porsche turbocharged boxer engines, and it’s a technical innovation. Available as an option for the new 911, the sports exhaust system features two catalytic converters and a rear silencer, which lead into two centrally positioned tailpipes. For a look otherwise more likely to be seen on the racetrack. For impressive resonance and an intense sports car sound – typical of the 911. For 100 % Porsche. And for goose bumps at the push of a button.
Driving dynamics and ride comfort are inextricably linked. For the bodyshell, therefore, our engineers used very thin, but extremely stiff, sheets of steel. Aluminium and magnesium were used extensively in areas such as the roof, the underbody, the front and rear ends, the doors and wings, and the engine compartment and luggage compartment lids.
Such material efficiency reduces the overall weight and, as a result, the fuel consumption of the vehicle. It’s what makes the 911 the lightest sports car in its segment. And we’re no less proud of that leading position than we are of any epoch-making racing victory.
The new sports steering wheel speaks the language of motorsport. The design is based on the steering wheel of the 918 Spyder and combines style with purism and a high level of functionality.
Integrated as standard in the 911 Carrera and 911 Targa models for the first time: Porsche Communication Management (PCM) including online navigation module with real-time traffic information, voice control system and mobile phone preparation as well as the Connect Plus module.
Tradition meets innovation. The result? Futurism, but of the Porsche kind.
Auto start/stop switches off the engine when the driving speed falls below 7 km/h under moderate deceleration, such as when you are approaching a red light. As soon as you release the clutch or, with PDK, depress the accelerator pedal, the engine restarts – swiftly and smoothly.
In conjunction with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), a coasting function becomes available where the situation allows. The engine is decoupled from the transmission to avoid deceleration caused by engine braking. In this way, optimum use is made of the vehicle’s momentum, enabling it to coast for longer distances.
