Porsche is coming up with its all-new 911 supercar by next month to India. Porsche has a strong market in India after Benz, Audi, and BMW. The company stands first in the field premium sports car sector and has been in the spotlight with its every step.
Going a step further, Porsche is coming up with its updated version of its 911 model. The company has been working on this from last and has finally arrived at the sales stage. The latest version will be in its eighth generation. The 992 series 911 will be in India on 11th April 2019. The Carrera 4S and Carrera S models are expected to come in cabriolet and coupe versions.
Porsche’s signature design language is there but with some tweaks. The body is bulged up and the front face is now more dominating and while at the back, the boot looks simple with a bit elevation. On the whole, 911 is now much wide and bulky.
There is an upgrade under the hood too. The 992 series 911 now gets a 3.0L flat-six turbo-petrol engine. This mill churns out a peak power of 450hp (30hp more than the previous one) and that’s surely a powerful engine. The 911 now claims to run 0-100kph mark in just 3.6 seconds for the Carrera 4S model and 3.7 seconds for Carrera S. Carrera 4S is an all-wheel-drive vehicle whereas Carrera S is a two-wheel drive model.
There is an eight-speed automatic gear train for smoother shifts and there is also an updated mapping and launch control system too. Thanks to the Sport Chrono package that further reduces the 0-100kph time factor by 0.2 seconds.
While the 911 looks more or less the same, some tweaks all around make it look impressive. With wider wheel arches we expect to have 20 or 21-inch alloy wheels for the car. There is a significant change at the back with the all-new interconnected taillights and a rear electronic spoiler that can be electronically lowered or raised.
On the Inside, The interiors look much relieving with minimum stuff all around. The dashboard looks clean with plastics and a few buttons. There is a dominating 10.9-inch touchscreen for the infotainment that serves all the purposes. The typical Porsche style is seen in the instrument cluster that can be customized also.
For now, that’s all we can tell you before the launch. The 911 competes with Audi R8, Jaguar F-Type and with its very own Panamera and Macan. The new 911 will be priced around 1.5Cr (Ex-Showroom New Delhi).
