  • New 911 Carrera…probably new...

    On the eve of the Frankfurt auto show, Porsche announced the official information about the new generation of 911 Carrera.
    We have become accustomed to the fact that every few years the German company is making small changes in appearance and specifications of their models and tells everyone, that these models are completely new ones.

    And according to the tradition, each new generation starts with the 911 Carrera. So the fact that we see exactly the Carrera model is quite understandable.

    Perhaps the main difference between the new sports car and the old one – is in the size. Due to an increase of the wheelbase by 10 cm (2450 mm) –the length of the car was increased (4491 mm). The car has grown in width too. The new Carrera became 65 mm (1873 mm) longer, but at 20 mm (1290 mm​​) lower, than the last model.

    Despite the similarities with the previous generation, the body of the car is a brand new. Through the use of aluminum, it has become easier on 45kg.

    To realize the difference between the new and the previous generation of Carrera at the first look, you can only see that roof is a little bit lower and front track is wider, another rear-view mirrors and LED navigation lights on the new front bumper. I hope, that you will agree with me…not so big designer modifications. However, Porsche sales statistics confirm that such politics is pretty good and works fine for the brand.

    Car interior has become more expensive. The interior uses higher quality materials. With the new center console and Multifunctional display the driver should now feel more comfortable and convenient.

    But the most important changes are hidden from your eyes. The new generation of 911 became the world's first car, equipped with seven-speed manual transmission. According to Porsche engineers, this gear box allows a more efficient use of power and torque. The new coupe is equipped with engine capacity of 3.4 liters, delivers power to 355 hp. It is interesting, bey the previous model had 3.6 liters with less power - 345 hp.

    Up to 100 km / h the novelty, that is equipped with a robotic gearbox PDK, accelerates in 4.6 seconds. This is 0.1 seconds faster than the previous version. If the box operates in Sport Plus, the car reaches 100 a little bit faster – for 4.4 sec.

    Carrera S, which is completed with an aggregate capacity of 3.8 liters and 400 hp, makes it till 100 in 4.3 seconds (in the Sport Plus mode - 4,1).

    The opportunity to buy a new model from Porsche you will get straight after its premiere in September.
