2019 Porsche 911
They can be equipped with either a standard 7-speed manual or a new 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Both of which, offer amazing spirited performance. As for power, the turbo 3.0-liter units continue to be rear mounted and offer more power than previous versions.
The reworked powerplant delivers 30bhp more than before, at 444bhp. Together with the revised gearing of the new dual-clutch gearbox, this results in a 0-62mph time that’s 0.4sec faster for both of the new 911 launch models, at 3.7sec for the Carrera S and 3.6sec for the Carrera 4S.
These times are shortened by a further 0.2sec with the inclusion of the optional Sport Chrono Package. This brings launch control, revised gearbox software that allows faster gearshifts and a sport response function for added performance. As a result, it provides the new 911 Carrera 4S with a 0 to 62mph that is 0.6sec inside the time of the old 911 Carrera 4 GTS, at just 3.4sec. Combined fuel consumption on the superseded NEDC cycle is also close to the old 911’s, at 31.7mpg for the Carrera S and 31.4mpg for the Carrera 4S.
