The German automaker Porsche has just released official details about its new 911 Carrera generation, less than a month before the Frankfurt Auto Show.
According to the manufacturer, the new 911 Carrera has 100 mm longer wheelbase and just became shorter. The new 911 Carrera actually looks new for someone who isn’t a Porsche fan and the automaker is bragging about its lightweight body with an intelligent aluminum-steel construction which puts away 45 kg and also makes the car more rigid and aerodynamic, with a wider extending rear spoiler.
“The new 911 doesn’t just offer better longitudinal dynamics, however, but top performance at an unprecedented level in terms of transverse dynamics as well. In addition to the longer wheelbase, the greater agility, precision and driving stability are based, among other things, on the wider front track, the new rear axle and new electro-mechanical power steering”, as the automaker explains in an official statement.
The 911 Carrera is powered by a 3.4 liter boxer engine which is delivering 350 horsepower and with the optional PDK it has an average fuel consumption of 8.2 liters per 100 kilometers (34 mpg), while emitting 194 g/km of CO2, being the first car with the Porsche logo on it to make it below the 200 g/km mark.
The Carrera S takes its power from the 3.8 liter boxer engine which is delivering 400 horsepower and with the same PDK has an average fuel consumption of 8.7 liters per 100 kilometers but its CO2 emissions are over the 200 g/km mark, at 205 g/km.
The new generation of the Porsche 911 Carrera will make its official world debut during the next month Frankfurt Motor Show and will be priced in Germany at 88.038 euros for the Carrera version, while the Carrera S will take 102.436 euros out of your pocket.
