Celebrating its debut next week at the Frankfurt International Auto Show, the new Porsche 911 Carrera is taking performance and everyday usability to new heights.

Innovative flat-six engines derived from four decades of turbocharging used in racing and on road cars not only make this the fastest 911 Carrera ever, but also provide abundant torque for superior passing power.

An advanced chassis offering an even more sophisticated combination of ride comfort and performance characterizes the handling of the new 911.

For the first time, rear-axle steering is available as an option for the Carrera S, significantly enhancing its already superb agility.

These improvements reduce the lap time on the North Loop of the Nurburgring to just 7 minutes and 30 seconds, making it 10 seconds faster than the previous Carrera S.

Many exterior features of the 911 Carrera have been visually refined from new headlights with four-point daytime running lights to integrated door handle recesses, a redesigned rear deck lid with vertical louvers, and new rear lights – including the characteristic four-point brake lights.

The completely new engine generation featuring twin-turbo technology enhances the driving pleasure of the 911 Carrera and provides a 20 hp increase compared to the previous models.

The 3.0-litre engine in the standard Carrera now develops 370 hp.

Using turbochargers with modified compressor wheels, a model-specific exhaust system, and a different tune for the engine management system, the 911 Carrera S delivers 420 hp from the same displacement.

The new Porsche 911 Carrera and Carrera S engines are characterized by significantly increased torque. Offering up to 331 lb/ft and 368 lb/ft respectively.
