Sime Darby Auto Performance, the authorised distributor of Porsche vehicles in Malaysia today unveiled the 8th generation 911 (992) at the Sepang International Circuit.
For now, the 911 range will comprise two variants:
- 911 Carrera S – RM1.15 million
- 911 Carrera 4S – RM1.22 million
Powering the all-new Porsche 911 Carrera S models is an updated 3.0-litre turbocharged flat-six engine producing 450 PS and 530 Nm of torque, which is paired with a new 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
This is roughly 30 PS more than the outgoing model, thanks to improved direct injection strategies and a new layout for the turbochargers and cooling systems.
While the Carrera S does 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, the Carrera 4S completes it in 3.6 seconds - both being 0.4 seconds faster than before. With the Sport Chrono Package option, the time further drops by 0.2 seconds.
Additional highlights include new assistance systems like the Porsche Wet mode, Adaptive Cruise Control, as well as Night Vision Assist with thermal imaging camera.
On the exterior, the all-new 911’s front end is 45 mm wider than before and unlike previous generation 911s where the all-wheel drive models came with a wider rear end, the width is now the same across the board. The spoiler is also significantly wider than the outgoing model.
Key features include the 4-point LED projector headlights with DRLs, 20-inch wheels up front and 21-inch wheels at the rear, flush door handles, an LED light strip that runs across the rear end, third brake lights in the shape of the number “11”, as well as integrated dual exhaust tips.
The only difference between the two models is that the Carrera S gets a blacked out rear grille, while the Carrera 4S gets it in chrome.
As for the interior, highlights of the all-new 911 includes a neater, more luxurious looking dashboard with straighter lines that remind us of the classic 911s, two 7-inch digital instrument panel that are flanked by two free-floating circular displays, a 10.9-inch display with capacitive touch functionality to access the Porsche Communication Management infotainment system, new and lighter seats, as well as a redesigned gear lever.
On that note, those who want to have a closer look at the all-new Porsche 911 Carrera S and Carrera 4S can head over to the Sepang International Circuit this weekend where the car will be on display during the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia Malaysian round.
