With significantly modernized exterior styling, the new Porsche 911 Carrera continues to outrank other luxury sports cars in the market. For 2021, this motoring icon delivers near-supercar performance while offering state-of-the-art safety and connectivity features.
Clothed in understated Crayon paint, the new Porsche 911 Carrera also earns impressive standard features including the sleek auto-deploying door handles and rear brake light mounted on the engine grille.
Aft of the rear wheels of this 911 Carrera is a gutsy 3.0-litre flat-6 twin-turbocharged engine. It generates a whopping 385 horsepower and a maximum torque of 450 Nm through an 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission, allowing a quick, crisp shift in its Sport mode and smooth shifts in Normal mode. This executive two-door coupe can effortlessly reach past 100 km/h from rest in just 4.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 293 km/h.
The 911 takes you to unprecedented sporty heights as it now comes with the Sport Chrono Package. There is a new mode switch on the steering wheel derived from the 918 Spyder, allowing you to choose between various settings; including the ‘Launch Control’ system. This new feature enables you to get the best possible standing ‘racing’ start.
Launching the 911 Carrera can also be done by standing on both pedals after choosing the Sport Plus mode. Build up engine speed to 5000 rpm and then release the brake pedal to unleash the car’s full acceleration potential. SPORT Response is also a new feature that activates the centre of the mode dial when you push the button.
By doing so, the engine and transmission immediately prepare for the quickest possible response. The Porsche Track precision App and tyre temperature display also ensure that your 911 Carrera remains fast and responsive.
The stopwatch on the dashboard is another unique component of the Sport Chrono Package. With the upgraded Porsche Communication Management (PCM), this soft-top sports car delivers a more excellent performance display, allowing you to view, evaluate, and store lap times.
Exuding luxury and class, the cabin of the new 911 Carrera is an exceptional place to be, especially with its black/bordeaux red two-tone leather and upscale tech features.
Being a Porsche, everything that appeals to the driver has been carefully considered, such as the analogue tachometer’s simplicity, the perfectly weighted gearshift paddles, steering wheel, and the ideal driving position. It also features a 10.9-inch touchscreen and two 7-inch TFT displays that promise quick response alongside the PCM and navigation via Apple Carplay.
The new 911 Carrera has also enhanced its cornering grip and stability, which is more achievable with its impressive list of driver aids such as the Power Steering Plus, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), and extended brake functions from Porsche Stability Management (PSM).
With every inch honed to perfection, the new Porsche 911 Carrera is a go-getter as it combines a comfortable ride and smooth handling. From its iconic luxurious design to its impressive dynamics, the new Porsche 911 Carrera is an impeccable everyday sports car.
