2012 All-New Porsche 911 (991) in Detail: Performance (E.U. Specs)


Performance (European Specs) "The engines, as you would expect, are characterised by a flat-six cylinder arrangement. The sound is unmistakably Porsche."

The future of the sportscar.
In the new 911, the future has already begun. The highly efficient, state-of-the-art engines make a considerable contribution to reducing fuel consumption, but their sound is still unmistakably Porsche.

The new 911 Carrera.

Fuel consumption* 911 Carrera: Extra urban: 6.8 l/100 km (41.5 mpg); Urban: 12.8 l/100 km (22.1 mpg); Combined: 9.0 l/100 km (31.4 mpg); Emissions: 212 g/km.

Tradition and innovation combine seamlessly in the new rear-mounted 3.4-litre flat-six engine thanks to its downsized capacity. Despite the reduced displacement, the engine is capable of delivering even more power to the road than its 3.6-litre predecessor.

The figures speak for themselves: 257 kW (350 hp) at 7,400 rpm. Maximum torque: 390 Nm at 5,600 rpm. Yet, in conjunction with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions have been reduced by 16%. Even more impressively, the car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 289 km/h (180 mph). The power of the new 911 Carrera is transmitted precisely and directly to the wheels by the new 7-speed manual gearbox. The SPORT button, which is fitted as standard, makes it possible to select an even more responsive engine and transmission setup.

The new 911 Carrera S.

Fuel consumption* 911 Carrera S: Extra urban: 7.1 l/100 km (39.8 mpg); Urban: 13.8 l/100 km (20.5 mpg); Combined: 9.5 l/100 km (29.7 mpg); Emissions: 224 g/km.

Nothing defines us more than our heritage. This is particularly true of the new 911 Carrera S. The performance figures leave no doubt as to the car's genes. The 3.8-litre engine with direct fuel injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus delivers 294 kW (400 hp) at 7,400 rpm. Maximum torque of 440 Nm is available at 5,600 rpm. With a manual gearbox, the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is completed in just 4.5 seconds, all the way up to a top speed of 304 km/h (189 mph). All this power is matched with outstanding efficiency. Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions have been reduced by 14% compared with the previous model.

The 911 Carrera S also displays its rich racing heritage both visibly and audibly: with the resonant sound from its engine, twin tailpipes in brushed stainless steel and 20-inch Carrera S wheels.
* Consumption figures were obtained on the basis of standard equipment. Special equipment may affect consumption and performance.

The latest Porsche models are designed to operate on fuels with an ethanol content of up to 10%. Data determined for standard specification and in the NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) in accordance with the Euro 5 (715/2007/EC and 692/2008/EC) measurement method.
