The next generation of flat-six turbocharged engines has been further developed and is more powerful than ever before, with 331 kW (450 PS) in the S models. The drive efficiency has been increased by way of an improved injection process and a new layout for the turbochargers and charge air cooling system. The power is delivered by a newly developed eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. The top speeds are now 308 km/h (

An exterior design that draws on earlier generations of the 911
The exterior design is familiar and yet unmistakably new. The eighth-generation 911 is wider, more assertive, and more advanced. Wider wings arch over the large 20-inch wheels at the front and 21-inch wheels at the rear. The rear-wheel-drive models now match the bodywork width of the existing all-wheel models. Their rear body is 44 mm wider. The front end of all models – now 45 mm wider – revives a traditional feature of earlier 911 generations: a forward-extended bonnet with a distinctive recess in front of the windscreen. Both elements lengthen the front of the vehicle and give it a dynamic look. At the same time, the newly developed LED headlights illustrate how technology has advanced in the 911. These headlights are integrated into the wings almost seamlessly, taking the typically-911 round and upright form. Flush integration of the electrical pop-out handles in the doors emphasises the tapered and smooth side contour. The exterior mirrors have also been redesigned, and are now optimised to minimise wind noise. It’s also possible to fold the mirrors in electronically.
The rear of all models is dominated by the significantly wider, variable-position spoiler and the seamless, elegant light bar. The vertically arranged louvres of the air intake echo the contours of the rear window. The centrally located third brake light has also been integrated in the intake louvres. Since this is hidden when the rear spoiler is extended, there is a second brake light in the spoiler itself. As a distinguishing feature, the rear-wheel-drive models have black louvres, while the all-wheel-drive models have chrome elements in the rear grille. With the exception of the front and rear sections, the entire outer skin is now made from aluminium.
Redesigned interior with clear lines
The interior is distinctive, with the clear, straight lines and recessed instruments defining the dashboard. The 911 models from the 1970s provided the inspiration here as well. As it does in the original 911, the new dashboard covers the entire width between two horizontal wing levels. Alongside the centrally positioned rev counter, two thin, frameless freeform displays deliver information to the driver. Now 10.9 inches in size, the centre screen of the
In the area of digitisation, the 911 takes the next step into the future with permanent connectivity, as well as new functions and services. The standard PCM features include online navigation based on swarm data as well as

The next generation of flat-six engines
The turbocharged flat-six engines also enter a new generation with the new 911. In addition to compliance with the latest emissions standards by way of a gasoline particulate filter, the primary focus of advanced development here was on further enhancing performance. New, larger turbochargers with symmetrical layout and electrically controlled wastegate valves, a completely redesigned charge air cooling system, and use for the first time of piezo injectors combine to attain engine improvements in all relevant areas: responsiveness, power, torque characteristic, endurance, revving ability. In addition to performance enhancement of 22 kW (30 PS), achieving 331 kW (450 PS) at 6,500 rpm, the 911
The masterpiece from Zuffenhausen – seven generations of a cult athlete
A legend was born at the International Motor Show Germany (IAA) in Frankfurt. It’s 12 September 1963:
Ten years later, in 1973, the G series 911 is launched with fundamental changes. Many of these have become necessary because of stricter safety specifications in the USA – an important export market. The Stuttgart-based car manufacturer relies on powerful turbo engines and a galvanised body in its top model, additionally launching a Cabriolet version of the 911 and the Speedster, alongside the
Its successor, referred to internally as type 964, comes to market in 1988. The first model variants of the 964 generation show just how advanced the new 911 is: the all-wheel drive is introduced to the series for the first time on board the
The fourth generation of the 911 – the type 993 – is one of the most desirable editions. Initially,

The consumption and CO2 emission values were determined in accordance with the new Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP). The NEDC values derived from this should continue to be specified for the time being. These values cannot be compared to the values determined in accordance with the NEDC measuring procedure used up to now.
Further information on the official fuel consumption and official, specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars is available in the “Guidelines on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption of new passenger cars” [Leitfaden über den Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO2-Emissionen und den Stromverbrauch neuer Personenkraftwagen], which are available free of charge from all sales outlets and from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT).

*Dati determinati secondo il metodo di misurazione previsto dalla legge. Dal 1° settembre 2017 alcune auto nuove sono state omologate in conformità alla procedura armonizzata di test dei veicoli leggeri a livello mondiale (“WLTP”), una procedura di test più realistica per misurare il consumo di carburante e le emissioni di CO₂. Dal 1° settembre 2018 la WLTP sostituisce il nuovo ciclo di guida europeo (“NEDC”). A causa delle condizioni di test più realistiche, il consumo di carburante e i valori delle emissioni di CO₂ rilevati in base alla procedura WLTP saranno, in molti casi, superiori a quelli determinati in conformità alla procedura NEDC. Ciò potrebbe provocare corrispondenti modifiche della tassazione dei veicoli a partire dal 1° settembre 2018. Per maggiori informazioni sulla differenza tra la procedura WLTP e la NEDC, vi invitiamo a visitare www.porsche.com/wltp.
Attualmente, siamo ancora obbligati a fornire i valori rilevati in base alla procedura NEDC, indipendentemente dal metodo di test utilizzato. L’ulteriore comunicazione dei valori determinati in conformità alla procedura WLTP è facoltativa, fino al momento in cui l’utilizzo di tali valori diviene obbligatorio. Per quanto riguarda le autovetture nuove omologate conformemente alla procedura WLTP, i valori NEDC saranno quindi ricavati dai valori WLTP durante il periodo di transizione. Nella misura in cui i valori NEDC sono indicati come intervalli, essi non si riferiscono ad una singola vettura e non fanno parte dell'offerta. La loro indicazione è infatti tesa unicamente a consentire di comparare i diversi tipi di veicoli. Le funzionalità e gli accessori supplementari (accessori, misure degli pneumatici, ecc.) possono modificare i parametri rilevanti del veicolo, quali il peso, la resistenza al rotolamento e la sua aerodinamica e, oltre alle condizioni meteorologiche e del traffico, possono influire sul consumo di carburante, sul consumo di elettricità, sulle emissioni di CO₂ e sui valori prestazionali di una vettura.
