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


PORSCHE Media

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

The future of the sports car.
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.

Tradition and innovation combine seamlessly in the new rear-mounted 3.4-liter 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-liter predecessor.

The figures speak for themselves: 350 hp at 7,400 rpm. Maximum torque: 287 lb.-ft. at 5,600 rpm. Even more impressively, the car accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds (with optional PDK) and reaches a top track speed of 179 mph. The power of the new 911 Carrera is transmitted precisely and directly to the wheels by the new 7-speed manual transmission. The SPORT button, which is standard, makes it possible to select an even more responsive engine and transmission setup.


The new 911 Carrera S.

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-liter engine with direct fuel injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus delivers 400 hp at 7,400 rpm. Maximum torque of 325 lb.-ft. is available at 5,600 rpm. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph is completed in just 4.1 seconds (with optional PDK), and continues all the way up to a top track speed of 188 mph. All this power is matched with outstanding efficiency.

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.
