Porsche Vietnam presents attractive exclusive offers to the first two future owners of the new 911In anticipation of the arrival of the new 911 Carrera to Vietnam

Ho Chi Minh City. As part of the exciting anticipation of the new 911 arrival in Vietnam, Porsche Vietnam is presenting exclusive offers to the first two future owners of the new 911 Carrera. The exclusive offers include a special visit to witness the new 911 assembly line at the Porsche factory and the state of the art Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. Moreover, future owners will get a rare opportunity to test drive the new 911 on the Porsche-owned track – FIA compliant and Grade F1T certified for Formula 1 test laps -- in Leipzig, Germany.

The first two new 911 Carreras will arrive in Vietnam at the beginning of 2012 and the retail prices including import tax, special consumption tax and value added tax are as below:

911 Carrera Racing Yellow (120216) 6,374,500,000 VND
911 Carrera Carrera White (120217) 6,445,010,000 VND

This seventh generation of the 911 has done the largest development steps in its history. Almost 90% of the entire car has been redeveloped or redesigned. The all-new lightweight body, completely new drive-train and suspension systems offer a total new level of driving pleasure and even greater everyday practicality. At the same time, the fuel consumption and emission have been reduced dramatically compared to the previous model. The media worldwide affirms: “The new 911 is the best 911 ever built”.

It is no surprise that the new 911 has won the prestigious prize “Golden Steering Wheel 2011” even before its official launch.

The 100 millimetre longer wheelbase and reduced height combined with the up to 20-inch wheels underpin the athletic appearance. The remodelled exterior mirrors are accommodated on the upper edge of the door and not as before on the mirror triangle. Not only is this aerodynamically advantageous, it also emphasizes the new design line and visual impression of width.

The all-new, lightweight body is an intelligent aluminium-steel construction. It is responsible for a significant proportion of the weight reduction of up to 45 kilograms and significantly greater rigidity. Aerodynamic optimisation – including a wider, variably extending rear spoiler – enabled the new 911 Carrera’s lift to be reduced yet further while retaining a very good Cd value.

To complement the modern exterior design, the Porsche designers created an interior, the architecture of which takes its cue from the Porsche Carrera GT. The driver is now even more closely integrated with the cockpit thanks to the centre console rising up to the front with the high-mounted shift lever or gear selector located especially close to the steering wheel in typical motorsport fashion. Classic Porsche elements are also to be found inside, as they are on the outside: the instrument cluster with five round instruments – one of them a high resolution multifunction screen, the central rev counter and the ignition lock to the left of the steering wheel.

Setting the standard in its class, as it has for generations, the new 911 Carrera and Carrera S raise the performance and efficiency bar yet another notch. The 911 Carrera with the new 350 hp 3.4-litre boxer engine, the optional PDK and Sport Chrono package needs only 4.4 sec to sprint from a standing start to 100 km/h while consumes a mere 8.2 litres per 100 kilometres. The Carrera S with its 3.8-litre boxer engine and 400 hp, the optional PDK and Sport Chrono package accelerates from nought to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds while the fuel consumption is just at 8.7 l/100 km. Fuel consumption and emissions are up to 16 percent lower compared with its previous generation. This could be achieved, thanks to high-tech systems and functions such as auto start/stop, thermal management, electrical system recuperation, the world’s first seven-speed manual transmission and – in conjunction with the Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK). The new electro-mechanical power steering offers not only Porsche’s typical precision and feedback but also helps to increase efficiency and reduce fuel-consumption.

The new 911 doesn’t just offer better longitudinal dynamics, however, but top performance at an unprecedented level in terms of transverse dynamics as well. In addition to the longer wheelbase, the greater agility, precision and driving stability are based, among other things, on the wider front track, the new rear axle and new electro-mechanical power steering. Depending on the model, there are other standard or optional active control systems available as well that further enhance the driving dynamics. That is especially true for the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) active roll stabilisation system, available for the first time on the 911 Carrera S. This system reduces lateral inclination when cornering, the tyres always being in the optimal position relative to the road surface and able to transmit higher lateral forces.

The retail price and market launch date vary by region or country. Please contact the Porsche PR Manager of your country in order to receive country-specific information.
