Porsche has gone back to its racing roots with the 911 Carrera S. The 3.8 litre engine of the Carrera S tells a vibrant story for performance-focused drivers: a searing torque of 440 Nm at 5,600 is achieved with minimal fuss, coupled with 400 hp. The engine of the Carrera S proves Porsche's fierce determination to be at the cutting edge of engine technology. This Porsche model features direct fuel injection for seamless car journeys where the engine is kept cool for long car journeys. This focus on technology is also illuminated with the ground-breaking work that went into creating the chassis of the Porsche, which is indomitable in its performance delivery.
The 6 cylinder engine of this prestige car highlights the marque's focus on racing and speed, as it powers the car to reach a top speed of 187 mph. The Carrera's engine also boasts an impressive 0 - 60 mph acceleration in only 4.1 seconds, courtesy of the Sports package. Another added treat for Porsche fans is the in-gear acceleration time of 50 - 75 mph in only 2.4 seconds.
The strength of speed within the Porsche Carrera is accelerated by a rock-solid transmission system. Engineers at the German marque created a unique transmission system called Porsche Doppelkupplung or PDK for short. This transmission system includes a 7-speed gearbox with rear wheel drive. The unique aspect of the PDK transmission is Porsche have managed to create a fluid gear change system where drivers can't feel the changes between the gears.
Focus on speed and performance has not changed Porsche's commitment to the environment. The issue of CO2 emissions is tackled through technology: the marque has succeeded in gaining a 15% decrease in environmental emissions across the board. This type of focus on the environment makes the Carrera S a sports car with a conscience to experience during car journeys.
Crucial driving features that enhance performance in the Carrera S include the park assist control for the front and rear. This can be activated when parking in tight corners and spots where the driver's vision is partially obscured. Another performance detail that colours the Porsche with dynamism is the PASM Sport Suspension system. This is an innovative platform that allows this prestige car to growl with power across roads and the motorway, peppered with added shine from the Sport Chrono Package Plus and the Sports Exhaust System.
The racing heritage of the Carrera S is preserved with these supreme performance features that glow under scrutiny by veteran motorists. The visual accents of the Carrera S outline the hybrid of the racing element and style pedigree of this Porsche.
The cabin of the Porsche is a solid example of refined taste that the German car manufacturer has perfected over painstaking time and effort. The automatic dimmer in the cabin creates an ambient setting for late night drives or early morning car journeys. This sleek feature is complement by the top tinted windscreen of the Carrera, which creates a smooth driving experience. Porsche chose the bright shade of Carrera Red for the leather upholstered trim of the car. The natural leather of the Carrera Red interior envelopes various important style accents of the cabin as the electrical sport seats. There is also seat ventilation for the electrical seats to create a breathable atmosphere within the cabin.
The Carrera S was inspired by adrenaline of the race-track, yet Porsche have gone the extra mile to inject the safety of race-track driving into the cabin of the prestige car. This was done by including a fire extinguisher in the car - highlighting the German supercar's dedication to keeping the passengers and driver safe from any potential emergencies. Along with safety is efficiency, another theme which is built into the cabin of the Carrera S. Drivers can take advantage of the Porsche Entry & Drive feature. This seamlessly allows drivers to simply jump into the car and start their journey with minimal hassle.
Agility in driving is achieved with the Carrera S through the multi-function steering wheel. The Carrera encourages drivers to think outside the box during all types of journeys with this high-specification steering wheel. Fresh air for relaxing car journeys seeps in courtesy of the electric slide/tint sunroof of the Carrera S. The final jewel of the crown of this Porsche prestige car is the audio system integrated in the cabin. Porsche went with the Burmester High End Surround sound, which also comes with a comprehensive 6 CD/DVD changer to suit different audio or visual entertainment requirements.
The body of the Carrera S is a transparent success of engineering and style. The white exterior coats the entire body of the car, which features Bi-Xenon headlights to assist with driving at different times of the day. Other portals of light on the exterior include the position lights and daytime running lights which are equipped with LED technology.
There are stainless steel twin tailpipes on the left and right hand side of the car that gives the Carrera S a unique stamp of exclusivity that can't be matched by other supercars. The 20 inch sports design wheels add stature to the sleek aerodynamic look of the Porsche without overpowering it. This is the crux of the visual identity of the Carrera S: dynamic beauty that can independently hold its own.
