After originally presenting its new 911 generation, or 991 as it is also known, only a month before the Frankfurt Motor Show, Porsche decided to bring it to the German event for a public unveiling before it will hit the showrooms later this year.
“The completely redesigned generation of the sports car icon is stepping into the limelight with its flat, stretched silhouette, exciting contours and precisely designed details, yet from the very first glance it remains unmistakably a 911”, as it is written in an official Porsche statement.
The entry-level Carrera is powered by a 3.4 liter boxer engine, delivering 345 horsepower, allowing the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds or in 4.2 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono Package, with a top speed of 288 km/h or 179 mph.
Porsche says that its entry-level Carrera with the 3.4 liter engine is burning only 8.2 liters every 100 kilometers (34 mpg) with the optional PDK, while emitting just 194 g/km of CO2, being actually the first car from the German automaker to make it below the 200 g/km mark.
Its “bigger” brother, the Carrera S, is powered by a 3.8 liter boxer engine, which is delivering 394 horsepower, being able to accelerate from o to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds or in 3.9 seconds with the SC package, hitting a top speed of 302 km/h (188 mph), while burning 8.7 liters every 100 km and emitting 206 g/km of CO2.
As we said before, the new generation of the Porsche 911 is expected to go on sale later this year with a starting price of 88.038 euros for the Carrera, while the Carrera S will cost 102.436 euros.
