Porsche has released the final details of the new 911 model ahead of its release at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in September. The latest model boasts a host of new features that will keep it at the top of the sports car market.
The switch to turbocharged engines is the most eye catching development but there are also new exterior features to improve efficiency and performance. Four-point LED daytime running lights and reshaped air intakes are the main changes to the front, while there is a new rear engine cover at the back.
Drivers will also be able to make use of the advanced Porsche Communication Management (PCM) touchscreen infotainment system, which includes Wi-Fi and Apple Carplay for the first time.
Under the bonnet a new turbocharged engine range delivers pure driving excitement. Entry level Carrera models have a redeveloped 3.0-litre twin-turbo flat-six engine, which increases power by 20bhp to 365bhp.
The Carrera S variant receives a series of boosts that give it a maximum output of 414bhp and a 0-62mph time of 3.9 seconds. Hitting the Sport Response button will ready the drivetrain for 20 seconds of maximum acceleration, helping you to get the most out of the engine. It’s the efficiency figures that really impress though, with the turbocharged engines capable of producing up to 38.2mpg with CO2 emissions of just 169g/km.
