Porsche wins ‘Best New Engine 2009 Award’

Porsche has been successful once more in the International Engine of the Year Awards. With the 3.8-litre power unit from the 911 Carrera S models, the Stuttgart sports car manufacturer has underlined its position in a field of high performance competitors, receiving the coveted ‘Best New Engine 2009 Award’. For eleven years, this prize has been awarded by the British specialist journal Engine Technology International for outstanding engine characteristics.

With flat-six engines featuring direct fuel injection technology, Porsche continues to increase the sports driving character, efficiency and environmental compatibility of all its sports cars, and this is especially true of the 911. In combination with the innovative Porsche double-clutch transmission (PDK), fuel consumption can be reduced by more than 13 per cent and CO2 emissions by almost 15 per cent.

Output of the 3.8-litre power unit in the 911 Carrera S models is up by 30bhp to 385 bhp (283 kW), pushing the extra-powerful Carrera S beyond 300 km/h (186 mph). Despite this supreme power and performance, the 911 Carrera S Coupé with PDK offers Combined average fuel economy of just 27.7mpg.
