Porsche 911 Turbo S / GT3 RS - Carrera Gets a Turbo Flat6 + Facelift - Page 3

post #61 of 88

People are coming in here and saying it "looks the same as the last one" like 911s haven't had the same basic shape since 1963. The design of the 911 has always been about evolution, not revolution. When the replacement for the 991 comes out in like 2018 or whenever, I promise you it will look similar to the 991.

Cayman is one hell of a car, damn I missed these pics. I'm glad the Toybaru was modeled after this

911 facelift plus now with turbo'd flat six.
Quote:
The base 911 Carrera gets a 3.0-liter bi-turbo flat-six engine producing 370PS (365hp) – an increase of 20PS compared to the previous model. The 911 Carrera S gets the same engine but with modified compressors, a specific exhaust system and tuned engine management, for an output of 420PS (414hp) – also a 20PS increase.

Torque is also up compared to the previous naturally-aspirated units, by 60Nm in each case (44lb-ft). The 911 Carrera has 450Nm (332lb-ft) of torque, while the 911 Carrera S has 500Nm (369lb-ft), delivered constantly from 1,700 rpm up to 5,000 rpm in both cases. The engine has a maximum speed of 7,500 rpm, more than conventional turbo engines.

Thanks to the new turbocharged engines, the 911 Carrera and 911 Carrera S are up to 12 percent more fuel efficient than before. The 911 Carrera with PDK transmission now averages just 7.4 l/100 kilometres (31.8 mpg US), while the 911 Carrera S with PDK returns 7.7 l/100 km (30.5 mpg US).

Performance-wise, the facelifted 911 Carrera Coupé with PDK and Sport Chrono Package sprints from zero to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds – making it 0.2 seconds faster than its predecessor. The 911 Carrera S with PDK and Sport Chrono Package covers the same sprint in 3.9 seconds (also 0.2 seconds faster), making it the first 911 in the Carrera family go below the four second mark. Top speeds of both models have also increased: the 911 Carrera now reaches of 295 km/h (183 mph), while the 911 Carrera S hits 308 km/h (191 mph).

Only Porsche I think worth having as a daily driver is the panamera

Got to disagree, Panameras are cool but it isn't touching a classic 911 Carrera which isn't really that bad as a daily driver.

To be honest, I'd rather have a Macan Turbo daily over a Panamera.

I got the Macan S a few months back.

It's everything I've ever wanted in a car


Porsche > any other car company

The Panamera looks so dated already.

With so many 911 models I get lost. I think i'd love a 997 once I have my crib as my project/weekender.
post #82 of 88
^ yeah the one I want is a 997.1.

Always wanted a 911 ever since I was a little kid. Might just say F it and cop.

Always wanted a 911 turbo

But with so many models, that's probably a basic *** one or the wrong model

I was obsessed with the 2012 turbo

To me, Turbo is just about the right middle ground since it can pass as a daily driver. Now do not expect Lexus like smooth driving but it isn't spine shattering either.

It has an ok trunk space and it is still technically a four-seater.

It also isn't too conspicuous, I mean it is still a 911 but it's no Ferrari or Lambo that will have people pulling their phones out to take a pic. Now this up to the personal preference of course and some may prefer all those eyes on them but I'd probably prefer to be more obscure for a daily driver. Again it is still a 911 so you will get looks but it is still plenty common enough and only most enthusiast will know that it is the beastly twin of the Carrera that can hit 60 in less than 3.

And again this is personal preference but it is a 911 so it either already looks dated to you so you do not want one or you love the look so much and to you it will never look old and just classic.

The Trubo is definitely not the basic model, the S is still considered a supercar and will still cost you more than $150k+ to own one. The S is pretty much at the top of the 911 line minus the R and GT3.

it's easy enough to de-badge ('ve pretty much done it on all my vehicles or order it straight from Germany and ask them not to put the emblem on and if you're going to take the custom order route, might as well take the European Delivery Option and visit the Porsche factory to pick-up your car and then drive it around Europe
