Porsche 911 Carrera 992-generation debuts at Los Angeles

Porsche 911 Carrera 992-generation debuts at Los Angeles

The all-new 992-generation Porsche 911 has made its global debut at the Los Angeles motor show and is being offered in two variants – the Carrera S and the Carrera 4S for $113,200 (approx. Rs 80 lakhs) and $120,000 (approx. Rs 85 lakhs) respectively. The new-gen 911, as usual, looks almost the same as the previous car, but up close and personal, it's evident that this is an all-new car.

Touted as the MY2020, the new 911 gets the wide-stance of the previous-gen car as standard and while the wheelbase is unchanged, the overall length is about 25mm less, thanks to the more rounded nose and is about 10kg lighter as well. While a lot of people wouldn’t be able to tell the new 911 from the front, it gets a distinct rear with the extended light-bar connecting the two tail lamps, the new signature of VW group. The vertical slits on the tail hark back to the 70s and it also gets the variable rear spoiler which adapts to the speed requirements.

Inside, Porsche continues with the five-dial setup with digital screens and a separate touchscreen for the infotainment system. The cabin has been visibly moving towards the premium end with every new generation and the 992 911 comes with all-leather interior with a whole range of customisations on offer. But what enthusiasts would want to know the most is about the new tweaked 3.0-litre flat-six turbocharged engine which now develops about 20bhp more than its predecessor. With wider track, both fore and aft, the grip levels in corners are expectedly higher and it will come mated to an eight-speed PDK gearbox.

For the purists, there is a manual in the making, most probably a seven-speed one at that, but it has been reserved for a ‘later date’. The new 911 is faster off the blocks than the previous-gen 911 GT3 and we say this only because you needed to know how much better it has become. American deliveries are expected to begin in summer 2019, which means, we can expect the car to reach India by the end of 2019.
