Any car that Porsche unveils is sure to be eagerly awaited but there’s unprecedented interest for the launch of the latest generation Porsche 911. After all, it has been the top-selling sports car worldwide for many decades.
The 911 had a rear-mounted flat-six engine that led to a sporting driving experience that was loved by so many of the brand’s fans. Its unrelenting appeal stemmed from its responsive and dynamic performance proven on the tracks and on the road as well as outstanding daily practicality.
Porsche made sure that this new-generation 911 has the right set of highlights that will extend its reputation into the future. Among its features are some state-of-the-art twin-turbocharged flat-six engines, a new infotainment system, and a sophisticated chassis that’s both comfortable and high-performing.
Porsche’s experience with turbocharging spans more than 40 years in producing both production sports cars and motor racing ones. So when it came down to the new 911 Carrera’s new engines, they’ve been built to establish new benchmarks when it comes to efficiency, performance, and driving enjoyment.
Its dynamism is enhanced with a new option available with Carrera S vehicles for the first time ever – rear-axle steering. With this new equipment, the 911 Carrera can be 10 seconds faster in finishing a lap in the North Loop of the Nürburgring down to 7 minutes and 30 seconds.
Pricing for the new 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera starts at $89,400 in the United States, while the 911 Carrera S costs $103,400. Meanwhile, the 911 Carrera Cabriolet costs $101,700, while the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet comes with a $115,700 price tag.
