The new

Nothing is new, claim a heretic. And are incorrectly. The exterior design you have to look for the differences though. But changes in the tax space is the Modern, obviously. The Start switch is located to the left of the steering Wheel and the analog tachometer dominates the Central dashboard – Tradition – otherwise everything is new!

In a sports car networking is secondary? Not if there is a 911 everyday to be fit. So also the iconic sports car has a 10.9 inches large screen, the Panamera or Cayenne. While the voice control system similar to Alexa, a Restaurant according to our taste, slows us down, the new Wet-Mode in the case of Aquaplaning danger, without realizing it, or the fun of driving is lost. In spite of all this technology, it has become only 45 kilograms heavier, due to various lightweight construction measures.

The term turbo-lag is on the new 911, however, is a foreign word. Starting at 2300/min speed of 530 Nm of the sports car on all four wheels forward. After 3.6 seconds the digital speedometer to three digits. With 450 horsepower, the Boxer engine delivers for every situation in life has enough power. In everyday life, the 911 rides very well-behaved, is in the sport mode, but the revving curve-eater.

VIEW the conclusion

Porsche is also in the eighth-911-Generation Evolution instead of Revolution. And so he creates like no other super athletes the balancing act between everyday life and large-scale driving fun. At the same time, he has risen in the networking and Infotainment compared to the previous course. However, this is a good overall package has also traditionally been its price. There is the 911 Carrera 4S 167’100 Swiss francs. Therefore, we can only dream of: If I was once rich …
