All-New Porsche 911 Review // Best Water Cooled Carrera Yet
The all-new Porsche 911, with the code name 992, is arriving this year and it is the best looking air-cooled 911 so far. With the wheelbase remaining the same, Porsche made the track wider, the wheels staggered but also bigger in the back by one inch. The front wheels are 20-inches by 8.5-inches wide but the back wheels are 21-inches with a width of 11.5-inches. The track has been increased by 4.5cm on the front and 3.9cm in the back. This gives the all-new Porsche 911 wide, flat stance that is accentuated by the wide front and rear air openings. It looks killer. Inside the new Porsche Carrera is a 10.9-inch centre screen, a toggle PDK shifter and class panel in the centre similar to the Panamera and cayenne. This is one area that looks a bit cheap and not in keeping with the car. The rest of the car is classic Porsche materials and build quality. The engine has a 3.0L bi-turbo 6-cylinder with 443hp and 390lb.-ft. of torque with the power going to a new 8-speed PDK. A manual will come later in the year. There is a new Wet mode for driving in the rain that changes the ABS, traction control, throttle and PDK settings to give much better control in wet conditions, plus more torque is set to the front wheel if the car has all-wheel-drive.
