NEW PORSCHE 911 CARRERA ARRIVES NEXT YEAR
It was an open secret and premonitions have been met. Porsche has just introduced the new Porsche 911 2016, whose main novelty is leaving to take aspirated engines across the range boxer turbo engines.
Also new is the steering rear axle, which for the first time is available as an option on the Carrera range after trying it in the GT3, GT3 RS and the Turbo and Turbo S. But there is more news we told you, in detail , coming up next.
Aesthetically changes are subtle. On the one hand headlamps with daytime running lights and rear four points on the four points are the brake lights.
The door handles are now integrated into the body and redesigned rear hood with vertical slats are some of the points that change in this version 2016.
Biturbo engines arrive
Since we already imagined by the comments and the many spy photos we had seen so far, now both the Porsche 911 Carrera and Carrera S feature biturbo engines.
The Carrera now develops 370 horsepower and 420 Carrera S horses. In both cases they increase 20 horses about their ancestors, and what is most prominent is that in both cases the motor is a three-liter boxer architecture.
In the case of the Carrera S power it is achieved because it takes a modified turbo compressors with a dedicated exhaust system and a new engine management.
In addition to those 20 horsepower, both engines increased 60 Nm of torque than their predecessors, delivering 450 Nm in the 500 Carrera and the Carrera S. Nm
It is striking that the maximum torque is available between 1,700 and 5,000 RPM, but what really stands out is the engine turns up to 7500 RPM.
Porsche ensures that turns up almost as atmospheric and sound keeps almost unchanged regarding this. Will have to check it out and hopefully so, because the sound of an atmospheric Porsche turns up is hard to imitate, and impossible to forget.
More efficient and best performing
The arrival of new turbo engines also bring greater efficiency. They are twelve percent more efficient, which translates into less consumption of one liter per 100 kilometers.
In Career, consumption approved with PDK is 7.4 liters, while the Carrera S homologous 7.7 l / 100 km.
If we go to the section on performance, the Carrera equipped with PDK and Sport Chrono Package, improves the 0-100 km / h in 0.2 seconds stopping the clock in 4.2 seconds.
Same configuration with the Carrera S, and also cut 0.2 seconds, stopping the clock in 3.9 seconds. It is the first time a low Carrera in the 0-100 km / h in four seconds.
Career reaches 295 km / h (6 km / h more than the previous), while the 911 Carrera S reaches 308 km / h (4 km / h more than before).
Heritage Porsche 918 Spyder, the mode switch on the steering wheel
As we advanced when Porsche showed the images of this new generation of the 911, the new model adopts a new inherited Porsche 918 Spyder.
Not only they are inherited forms of the supercar, but also incorporates a selector that lets you choose between four operating modes: Normal, Sport, Sport Plus and Single.
If the car is the gearbox PDK also we find the selector in Sport Response Button. This magic button allows you to perform full throttle for 20 seconds and pressing the car is pre-set to the maximum performance parameters.
The new Porsche 911 Carrera models will be available from December 12, 2015.
A greeting and thanks for reading.
