Porsche makes 911 faster, adds tech to counter Tesla threat

2019 Porsche 911 front

Still, the automaker says the wheel housings are "significantly wider" (covering 20-inch front and 21-inch rear alloys), while the rear end is now the same width across all models.

That makes both versions of the 992 0.4 seconds faster than the previous model.

In addition, the next generation of its turbocharged 3,0-litre flat-six engines have been "further developed" to produce more oomph in the S models.

Now playing: Watch this: The 992 generation of Porsche 911 is here - and it looks.

The new eighth generation 911 or 992 will be available first in mid-grade Carrera S and all-wheel-drive Carrera 4S trim. Power is delivered by a new eight-speed, dual-clutch transmission. There are new LED matrix headlights at the front, complete with four-point daytime running lights, while the lines of the "frunk" are straighter, evoking models of old. At the front, the body width has increased by 45 millimeters (1.77 inches), making room for a wider front track. Eventually, the 911 lineup will be filled out with as many as two dozen different variants.

United Kingdom deliveries are expected to begin in the spring, and there will inevitably be about 638 different versions of the new 911 (Targa, cabriolet, Turbo, GT3, etc.) joining the family on a month-by-month basis over the next year. The Carrera S has a top speed of 191 miles per hour and accelerates from zero to 60 miles per hour (96.5 kph) in 3.5 seconds.

Switch Just Had the Best Sales Week in Nintendo History
The most recent installments of the franchise sold 5.35 million copies on the Wii U and 9.35 million on the 3DS. Nintendo expects 20 million units sold for the Switch for the current fiscal year, which ends in March 2019.

On the inside of the auto, while still evocative of the five-dialed recessed dashboard of the 1970s, the 992 now has two digital screens set on either side of the still-central analogue tachymeter.

Do not fear, manual lovers; a proper three-pedal set-up will arrive just after this one, likely once Porsche releases the non-S models of the Carrera 4 and 2. Left and right of the centrally positioned tachometer, which is characteristic for Porsche, two thin, frameless, free-form displays provide the driver with information.

The 911 Carrera S Coupé with PDK costs from £93,110 and the 911 Carrera 4S Coupé with PDK from £98,418. The new range also gets insane gadgetry like Night Vision Assist with a thermal imaging camera as an option for when you need to go covert.

Melania Trump's White House Christmas decorations | Times2
When asked about her choice in decor Wednesday, Melania urged people to visit the White House before criticizing the decorations. Trump said she wanted to educate the next generation on the dangers of drug use.

It has a new centre control screen that is larger than the previous 911 (10.9 inches, up from seven) and a streamlined dashboard and knob configuration that makes it seem slightly more modern than the previous iteration. In terms of digitalization, the 911 is more connected than ever before thanks to new functions and services.

The 911 has permanent connectivity that now also uses swarm intelligence, Porsche said. Likewise, the vehicle equipment may not work with future mobile networks yet to be deployed.

Introduced by two-time world rally champion Walter Röhrl and Porsche GT boss Andreas Preuninger in the footage below, the new product of the Porsche Motorsport division takes the performance potential of the 911 to new heights. A camera-based warning and brake assist system, also fitted as standard, detects the risk of collision with moving objects and initiates emergency braking if necessary. The 2020 911 Carrera 4S starts at $120,600.
