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.

In the 21st century, we find ourselves caught between all kinds of opposites on a daily basis: between the demands of our work life and our private life, between the real world and virtual reality. How can they all be reconciled? With a strong identity and a sports car that has incorporated many contradictory notions since 1963.

Sportiness and everyday practicality are a prime example. The new 911 Carrera is equipped as standard with direct fuel injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus for high power, high torque, efficient combustion and, as a result, comparatively low fuel consumption.

Tradition and innovation blend seamlessly together in the 3.4-litre, six-cylinder horizontally opposed engine. The figures speak for themselves. The maximum power of 257 kW (350 hp) is available at 7,400 rpm and the maximum torque of 390 Nm is generated at 5,600 rpm. Even more impressively, the car accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 4.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 179 mph.

The 911 Carrera generates powerful forces, which are transmitted precisely and directly to the wheels by the 7-speed manual gearbox. As with the optional PDK, gears 1 to 6 have a sports ratio, while 7th gear has a long ratio for reduced fuel consumption. The SPORT button, which is fitted as standard, makes it possible to select an even more responsive engine and transmission setup.

In terms of form and function, the single tailpipes are especially imposing and emit a sound that is typically Porsche. The 19-inch Carrera wheels are fitted as standard and offer excellent driving stability and performance.

Sports car technology as standard, in the form of black four-piston aluminium monobloc fixed calipers, Porsche Stability Management (PSM) and Bi-Xenon headlights, shows that sportiness and safety are not mutually exclusive.

Sport, moderation, everyday practicality and style. Four key themes, one unifying concept: the 911 Carrera.
