Latest Porsche 911 sports car – faster and more comfortable than ever

Friday, November 7, 2014

The Porsche 911 has an unmatched heritage among sports cars, with a layout that shows clear roots stretching back to the car’s initial launch in 1963. Over the 50+ years since then, this rear engine speedster has become one of the most exciting and desirable sports cars on the market. Each new version brings improvements, and the latest Porsche 911 is the most technologically advanced model ever. The latest Porsche 911 is faster than its predecessors, yet also more efficient and practical. The chassis now uses more aluminum than before, so the car is lighter today, and it is safer now, too. The four-wheel drive models are excellent in all weather.

Models range from the 350 horsepower Carrera and the 400 hp Carrera S, up to the G3 model that delivers 469 hp. The Coupe and Cabriolet are mainstays of the line, and a retro-styled Targa model is in this range, too. The G3 model (which first appeared in 1999) is built for racing, but this one is no stripped down version – it is packed with high tech additions. The 911 line tops out with the Turbo and Turbo S models.
Driving the 911
There’s no doubt that the Porsche 911 is an agile machine that delivers exceptional driving thrills. The mid-range Carrera S has a 3.8 liter engine which provides an excellent blend of power and responsiveness. The flat-six engine has direct injection and variable-vane twin turbos, which can deliver a stunning 552 horsepower. The car goes from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.8 seconds, and the responsiveness is astonishing. This car seems to have never ending reserves of thrust available.
The PDCC (Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control) system gives the car stability on the corners. The car also comes with active roll bars, dynamic engine mounts, ceramic brakes, and the Sport Chrono Pack Plus. You will also find PASM adaptive damping, active rear steering, and active aerodynamics.
The steering system on the 911 has been changed to make it more comfortable on the highway, and when you’re cruising down the road in seventh gear, the car is quiet and refined. The manual gearbox can feel a bit clunky at lower speeds, and many drivers would choose the PDK automatic, which is fast and precise, and more relaxing.
Comfort and practicality of the 911
The newest Porsche 911 is roomier inside than its predecessors, thanks to a longer wheelbase. The front boot is deep enough to provide a good amount of storage. The back seat has room for two kids, or extra luggage for a getaway trip. The GT3 model doesn’t have rear seats. Even though this 911 has expanded somewhat, it is still compact enough that it is easy to park. The windows are large enough that you have decent visibility.
The cabin interior has some useful features, with narrow door bins, and a small storage center between the driver and passenger seats. There are cup holders concealed beneath a flap in the front, and the glove box is a useful size. Every 911 includes a navigation system.
Introducing the PCM (Porsche Communication Management) system
All Porsche 911 Turbo models feature the PCM (Porsche Communication Management) system. It helps drivers control the navigation, audio and communication functions on their vehicles. Multifunctional, powerful and easy to use, the PCM comes with an intuitive color touch-screen; drivers can operate it using the conventional pushbutton controls available. The clearly presented screen displays 5 list items/page and the radio functions include 42 memory presents, as well as FM dual tuner which constantly scans for the best signal.
Thanks to a wheelbase that’s 100mm longer, the latest Porsche 911 cars are more spacious than ever. The rear seats provide enough space for 2 kids, and it has some extra luggage room, too. In the front, drivers have several hidden cup-holders that will come in handy, and last but not least, the traction is absolutely incredible. Because of torque vectoring and a 4-wheel drive and, the newest Porsche 911 models are more stable at high speeds.
Whether you’re looking for a design911 Porsche or you’d like to try a Porsche Carrera, this car manufacturer has still a lot of hidden tricks under its sleeve. Who knows what other amazing upgrades they’ve prepared for 2015?
