The Porsche 911 Carrera S
Once you turn the key (yes, the ignition switch is still key-operated and is located on the left, as is the Porsche norm) the flat six’s familiar sound fills your ears with an exhilarating roar.
Tradition dictates that a new 911 must outperform its predecessors in driving dynamics, no small feat considering the 30,000 racing victories won by the 911 over generations. The seventh-generation model of the 911 has been completely redesigned and most of the redesign is seen at the rear-end of the car. The new lightweight body features an aluminum-steel composite construction, cutting about 100 lbs off the previous 911 body.
The power comes from the new 3.8 liter boxer making 400-hp mated to a Porsche’s PDK 7-speed dual-clutch transmission function. Our Porsche, with the Launch Control function of the optional Sport Chrono Package, goes from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds.
