Preserving the mastery of both the prosaic and the exhilarating stance of Porsche, the new Porsche 911 Carrera stands out with its GT Silver Metallic outlook. It’s virtually impossible to mistake a 911 for any other sports car, especially with its familiar circular LED headlights, sloping rump, and Coke bottle shape.
For 2021, this motoring icon delivers near-supercar performance with its gutsy 3.0litre flat-6 twin-turbocharged engine. Firing up this powerful and unique-sounding engine generates a whopping 385 horsepower and a maximum torque of 450 Nm through an 8-speed PDK transmission. This PDK transmission is an entirely new quick-shifting eight-speeder, but mostly allows you to save fuel at speed.
This executive two-door coupe corners with agility: its body stays flat while the tires deliver plenty of grip. Porsche also claims that it 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 Carrera takes you to unprecedented sporty heights as it now comes with the Sport Chrono Package. This 911 staple adds a dash top Sport Chrono clock that doubles as a lap timer, perfectly matched with two additional drive-mode settings and a steering-wheel-mounted drive-mode selector.
Launching this 911 executive coupe allows you to stand 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.
Climb into its perfectly positioned driver’s seat and you’ll know that it is an exceptional place to be. It exudes luxury and class, especially with its black leather interior with Crayon stitching matched with the 14-way electric Sports seats in front with a memory package.
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).
From its unrivaled driver engagement to its sublime powertrains, the new Porsche 911 Carrera outshines any other sports car. Its GT Silver Metallic theme and preserved essential elements of a Porsche makes it another icon in the 911 generation.
