The newest Porsche 911 brings more fun and pleasure to drive than the generation it replaces.
It was always like that except for 996 generation. Now they are offering only turbocharged engines, regardless the version.
The new 992 generation is wider by 45 mm (1.77 in) on the front and the all-wheel-drive model is also wider with 44 mm (1.73 in) on the rear than the generation it replaces. A new feature may be noticed at the front headlights, which are full LED. No more xenon or, even worse, regular halogen lightbulbs.
The interior was reworked and features two LCDs inside the instrument cluster, flanking the classical rev-counter, which has been kept analog. Also, on the center console, there is a 10.9-inch display used for the PCM (Porsche Communication Management) and supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The system also supports an online navigation system, with real-time data for the traffic ahead.
The engine is, as usual, a flat-six cylinder with twin-turbochargers. The total output is higher with 30 HP than the previous generation, reaching an impressive 450 HP. Imagine that the last air-cooled Porsche 911 (993) had 408 HP.
The transmission used exclusively is an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox (PDK), and ensures faster gear changes. The new 911 Carrera S lapped the famous Nurburgring Nordschleife in 7minutes 25 seconds. A time that, only 10 years ago, was available only for race cars.
