Character 911 Carrera S

Porsche 911 Carrera S - Character


Fuel consumption* of the 911 models: Urban in l/100 km (mpg) 18.9 (15.0)-11.3 (25.0); Extra urban in l/100 km (mpg) 8.9 (32.0)-6.6 (42.8); Combined in l/100 km (mpg) 12.4 (23.0)-8.2 (34.4); CO2 emissions in g/km 289-191.

Nothing defines us more than our heritage. It says a lot about who we are. This is particularly true of the 911 Carrera S, which has all the characteristics you would expect of a sports car whose origin is in motorsport.

An elementary component of its DNA, therefore, is power in the form of a 3.8-litre engine with direct fuel injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus. It delivers 294 kW (400 hp) at 7,400 rpm, and the maximum torque of 440 Nm is achieved at 5,600 rpm. In conjunction with the manual gearbox, the sprint from 0 to 62 mph is completed in a mere 4.5 seconds. Top speed isn’t reached until 188 mph.

On figures alone, the new 911 Carrera S excels, particularly in terms of efficiency, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. This is made possible by the auto start/stop function, which is available as standard, and the coasting function in conjunction with optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK).

It’s not difficult to tell where the 911 Carrera S comes from. You can hear it in the resonant engine sound and you can see it in the twin tailpipes in brushed stainless steel and 20-inch Carrera S wheels.

You can also feel it, thanks to Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which is fitted as standard, or the optional PASM sports suspension with even sportier aerodynamics and the ride height lowered by 20 mm. Or the optional Sport Chrono Package and dynamic engine mounts. Available as standard, Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV), or Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) in conjunction with the optional PDK, increase traction and driving stability. Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), the active roll stabilisation system, is available as an option and improves agility, comfort and safety.

On the subject of safety, the brakes at the front of the 911 Carrera S come equipped with monobloc fixed calipers with six, instead of four, pistons for improved braking performance and a shorter braking distance. Bi-Xenon headlights are standard, while the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) and LED main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+) are available as options.

There is no doubt. The 911 Carrera S knows its roots, and embraces them with efficiency, power and sporty performance.
