Porsche introduces a larger, lighter and faster 911. There are some that say the new Carrera has turned into a grand Touring car but after a few days with the new 911, the goodness of the car surfaces.

One of the longest running sports cars in existence, the latest Porsche
911- code-named the 991, will go on sale in the UK from December 2011.
Featuring a lower roof, more bulbous headlights and sharper tail-lights the
front track is also wider, improving handling. The engines have received
several tweaks too. The standard Carrera's 3.6-litre flat six cylinder
engine is replaced by a smaller 3.4 that is more efficient but produces
more power, at 345bhp. The 3.8-litre found in the Carrera S now produces
394bhp. Performance when fitted with the PDK twin-clutch gearbox and
optional Sport Chrono Pack is very impressive. The standard Carrera sprints
from 0-62mph in 4.4 seconds whilst the Carrera S can nail the benchmark in
just 4.1 seconds. The interior has received a major makeover that is
inspired by the Panamera, but with fewer switches. Most owners will opt for
the PDK gearbox but Porsche also offer a seven-speed manual option - the
first of it's kind in a production car.
2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S (2011 Frankfurt Auto Show)
NEW PORSCHE 911 CARRERA TO DEBUT AT FRANKFURT SHOW
- World premiere of new 911 at 2011 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show, September 13
- New generation of benchmark sports car
- Innovative chassis technology raises dynamics
- Lighter, more powerful, less fuel consumption, class-leading emissions
- Carrera costs from £71,449, Carrera S from £81,242
Porsche is proud to present the new 911 Carrera, a completely new
generation of the iconic coupe that has been acclaimed as one of the
world's benchmark sports cars since its launch in 1963.
Tradition meets modernity
True to the 911 tradition, the distinctive Porsche design language exudes
power and elegance. The unmistakable silhouette still catches the eye while
incorporating new, exciting contours and precisely designed details; a
100mm longer wheelbase for improved stability and greater interior space;
front and rear overhangs are shorter, maintaining the compact footprint
that has been a longstanding 911 attribute; the sporting stance is
emphasised by the lower roof line and a wider front track increases on-road
presence further still while raising the renowned chassis dynamics.
The rear-mounted, flat six cylinder engine is an equally symbolic component
of the 911 identity; and behind the rear axle of the new car lies an
uprated range of powerful, efficient and evocative 'boxer' engines. The 911
Carrera is powered by a new 3.4-litre engine developing 350 hp, and the
Carrera S features a 400 hp version of the familiar 3.8-litre. These new
engines offer performance improvements for both models. The 3.4-litre
Carrera with PDK accelerates from 0-62mph in 4.6 sec, 0.1 sec quicker than
the prior model. Pressing the Sport Plus button on the optional Sport
Chrono Pack cuts that to 4.4 sec. The 3.8-litre Carrera S with PDK can
accelerate from 0- 62 mph in 4.3 sec (Sport Plus 4.1 sec), 0.2sec quicker
than its predecessor.
All-new lightweight body
Principle among the innovative steps forwards is the all-new, lightweight
body, featuring intelligent aluminium-steel composite construction. It is
responsible for a significant proportion of the vehicle weight reduction of
up to 45 kg. The body structure also delivers significantly greater
rigidity, and aerodynamic optimisation -- including a wider, variably
extending rear spoiler -- has reduced the lift generated by the new 911
Carrera while retaining an impressive overall drag factor.
Innovative chassis technology
That the new 911 offers better acceleration in a straight line goes without
saying, but it also offers top performance at an unprecedented level across
the entire dynamic repertoire. In addition to the longer wheelbase, the
greater agility, precision and driving stability are based, among other
things, on the wider front track, a new rear axle and new
electro-mechanical power steering.
Depending on the model, there are other standard or optional active control
systems available as well that further enhance the driving dynamics. That
is especially true for the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) active
roll stabilisation system, available for the first time on the 911 Carrera
S. The system reduces body roll when cornering, with the result that the
tyres are always in the optimal position relative to the road surface and
thus able to transmit higher lateral forces. Consequently, maximum
cornering speeds are increased, and even faster lap times on racing circuits are

Ferrari 458 Italia & Porsche 991 Carrera S In Action!! - 1080p HD
FB: http://www.facebook.com/Jorrie2YT & http://www.facebook.com/jorrik.aben
For my 600th video I have filmed a red Ferrari 458 Italia and a white
Porsche 991 Carrera S. We started playing with the 458; doing some
accelerations, flyby's, making some shots with the GoPro camera, which was
so much fun that I forget that a brand new 991 Carrera S should join us.
After an hour or so, the 991 arrived and we started making some more shots
of both cars and we ended with some little races!
I hope you like my 600th video, please leave a comment and give a thumbs

So here it is, I made an announcement on my Facebook page for this beast!
The all new 2012 Porsche 991 Carrera S Cabriolet! The real revelation of
this car was at March 3, at the Geneva motorshow! But there wasn't any
video with the sound this clear. In this video you'll see the 991 doing
some ridiculous accelerations, flybys and downshifts! Also the revving is
pretty awesome with the switching between Sport mode on, and off. I hope
you like the video just as much as I enjoyed recording it!
What do you think about the 991? Share it, and comment below! Like the
video if you do! And if you like this video, be sure you take a look at my
