    Porsche 911 – Overview

    The most iconic sports car in the world, the Porsche 911, needs no introduction. The current 992-generation continues to be the benchmark for performance and essence of driving. Apart from being the longest selling sports car in the world, the range of variants of the 911 is also the widest, ranging from the entry Carrera to the powerful Turbo S, and the motorsport GT-ranges as well as convertible and Targa variants.
    In Malaysia, the eighth-generation Porsche 911 Carrera S starts from RM 1,105,335 for a base specification. The Carrera 4S starts from RM 1,172,391 and the 911 Turbo S from RM 2.235 million.
    Porsche Malaysia, under Sime Darby Auto Performance, also operates Asia-Pacific’s largest Porsche 3S centre in Petaling Jaya. Many other 911 variants such as Carrera 4S, Targa and Cabriolet are available on application, thus prices fluctuate according to features and availability.
    The Porsche 911 has the BMW M8, Audi R8 and the Mercedes-AMG GT as its key competitors. The Aston Martin Vantage is also a usual model buyers compare the Porsche 911 with. The Lexus LC 500 is also to some extent a competitor given its price positioning.

    Design

    The teardrop silhouette with the all-important Porsche ‘flyline’ roofline still occurs due to the technical layout of the 911. The tail lamp stretches the entire width of the rear bumper, illuminated by one continuous thin strip of LED lighting. The Porsche branding is spelt out within the thin lighting strip, indicating high quality and precision that is synonymous with the brand.
    One quick indicator of the latest Porsche 911 is the twin-vertical third brake light well integrated into the intake grille at the lowest level of the rear windscreen. Even when the self-deploying rear spoiler is raised, the third brake is not blocked.
    Front lighting units are adaptive LED with Porsche Dynamic Lighting System and feature four-point lighting as DRLs.

    At the sides, the door handles are electric pop-up types rather than the classic pull-type. Clean and technical lines are the theme in the new 911.
    The standard wheels are 19-inch and 20-inch Carrera Wheels with 235/40ZR19 front tyres and 295/35ZR20 rear tyres. The rear uses larger wheels for enhanced grip and stability. Porsche will also only offer one width for the rear dubbed ‘widebody’ which was previously reserved for the high-performance GT models.
    The Porsche Carrera S and Porsche Turbo S model get 20-inch/21-inch wheel and tyre combination, with the latter getting wider tyres.
    The eighth-generation Porsche 911 uses a lot more aluminium in this construction, now accumulating 45% of the bodyweight. One can even request to purchase the roof panel in unpainted carbon fibre material. Under the front bonnet lies a storage space of 132 litres.
    The Porsche 911 Turbo S also gets its own active aerodynamics kit, with a much larger rear wing that contributes even more downforce.

  • Interior

    Porsche 911 – Interior

    Dashboard

    The dashboard features the digital environment called Porsche Advanced Cockpit (PAC). The instrument cluster still houses a traditional tachometer flanked by two free-forming screens, while the infotainment is a large 10.9-inch HD screen.
    Directly below the central display are the direct access keys for Wet mode, suspension setting and front axle lifter.
    The lower console now looks even simpler thanks to the compact layout of the air-conditioning switches. All the physical switches in the 991-generation have been moved into the central display or the array of direct access keys, leaving a very clean and neat look. Gone too are the unsightly covers for unused switches.
    The PDK shift lever is a short knob to just engage Reverse or Drive, with Park and Manual selections via dedicated buttons. The lower console is decorated by gloss black panel, which cannot be specified to any other material. Odd.
    When equipped with the Sports Chrono Package, the centre of the dashboard houses a large stopwatch and the steering wheel has the dial switch for the driving modes- Normal, sport, sport plus and individual. The centre button called Sport Response enabled maximum powertrain response for 20 seconds, sufficient for overtaking manoeuvre.
    Customers can sieve through a long list of customization for the interior, such as the steering wheel, tachometer colour and the usual trim inserts, seat belt colour and material lining the dashboard.

    Instrument cluster

    The instrument cluster in the Porsche 911 is one of the last models in the premium segment with a physical gauge. The large central tachometer (customisable colour) is flanked by two high-definition 7-inch free-forming screens that display driving information as well as navigation maps.

    Space and practicality

    The cargo space of the Porsche 911 is a combination of a 132-litre trunk in front and an open luggage compartment of 264 litres once the little rear seats are folded down.
    Are the rear seats practical? Well, they look well-padded but it is not hospitable for adults due to the lack of all-round room. The BMW M8 will accommodate passengers at the back much better, relatively.

  • Features

    Porsche 911 – Features

    Safety features

    There are 6 airbags. Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are a cost option in the Porsche 911. Adaptive cruise control, active lane-keeping, and blind-spot monitoring are a-la-carte items in the personalization menu of the iconic sports car. Autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection is however standard though. A reverse camera.

    Comfort features

    The sports seats offer electrical adjustments of 14-ways as well as a memory function that also stores the position of the steering column. A two-zone automatic air-conditioning with active carbon filter is standard fitment.
    There is a single storage compartment at the lowest section of the centre console, while the passenger gets a more traditional slide-out cup holder.
    Unlike the BMW M8 and Mercedes-AMG GT, all the driving mode, audio and chassis setting switches for the vehicle are embedded in the central display, leaving a very spartan and minimalist interior. The Porsche Turbo S gets a GT steering wheel with better bolstered 18-way sports seats.

    Infotainment

    The Porsche Communication Management (PCM) consists of a large central display that measures 10.9 inches and functions as the control for the vehicle settings as well.
    Connectivity to the infotainment system includes USB Type C chargers and SD card slot.
    All the controls to the vehicle are performed via the touchscreen central display. It is responsive and the display is sharp thanks to HD resolution. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integrated comes standard.
    A BOSE surround sound system that plays high-quality output over 12 speakers and 570 Watts is standard in the Turbo S. For those who genuinely want the highest featured sound system, there is the Burmester system with 13 speakers, a 300-Watt Class D amplifier and a total output of 855 Watts.

  • Powertrain

    Porsche 911 – Powertrain

    Engine

    All engines in the Porsche 911 are now twin-turbocharged flat-six engines with just 3.0-litres in displacement, except the Turbo and GT models. The base 911 Carrera model packs a maximum of 385 PS/450 Nm of torque, while the 911 Carrera S variants see outputs raised to 450 PS/530 Nm.
    As for the 911 Turbo, a larger flat-six engine displacing 3.75 litres dishes out 580 PS/750 Nm of torque, while the Turbo S sees supercar like figures of 650 PS/800 Nm There is currently no hybrid system mated to any Porsche 911 powertrain.

    Transmission

    All variants of the Porsche 911 come standard with the 8-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission. Large metallic shift paddles are placed on the steering wheel for ease of use and familiarity. An ultra-tall seven-speed manual transmission is only offered on the Carrera S.
    Selecting the Sport Chrono Package will enable the use of the Performance Start or launch control mode, allowing the driver to have a controlled full-throttle acceleration from standstill. This package will also shift gears a lot faster for maximum acceleration in the PDK, while automatic rev-matching is included in the manual transmission.

    Chassis

    The front suspension continues with MacPherson strut setup, while the rear is laid out using a multi-link arrangement with plenty of aluminium members. The front track is a massive 42 mm wider than its predecessor while the rear is almost negligible at an increase of 10 mm.
    Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) that alters damping force levels according to road conditions, as well as drive mode, is standard. The turbocharged boxer engine also has active mounts that support the engine much better during hard accelerations.
    Many other performance features are optional in the Carrera and Carrera S, such as Sport Suspension, Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) and rear-axle steering. The Carrera S however comes standard with the Porsche Torque Vectoring plus (PTV Plus) fully-variable electronically controlled rear differential lock.
    Finally, there is the braking system that Porsche is famous for. The front calipers on the 911 Carrera are four-piston setup with 330 mm discs all-round, while the 911 Carrera S are six-piston units and larger 350 mm discs. Carbon-ceramic discs (PCCB) are optional on the lower variant models but it is standard on the Turbo S.
    A new Wet mode has been introduced in this new Porsche 911 to adjust the stability control and rear differential for better wet-weather stability.

    Drivetrain

    Default drive is to the rear wheels, but certain models come with an option for all-wheel drive with the ‘4’ naming. All-wheel traction or the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel drive system featuring an electronically and map-controlled multi-plate clutch. Traction between the front and rear axle is continuously varied according to various parameters, and electronic systems will send power to the corner with the most traction.
    The Porsche Turbo S comes standard with all-wheel drive and an uprated PTM that can send as much as 500 Nm of torque to the front axle.

  • Driving Performance

    Porsche 911 – Driving Performance

    The Porsche 911 Carrera with 385 PS completes 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.0 seconds, when Performance Start Sport Chrono Package is used, while the more powerful Carrera S with PDK requires just 3.5 seconds. The manual transmission takes a more ‘leisurely’ 4.2 seconds due to the tall gearing.
    The Porsche Turbo S requires just 2.7 seconds to hit 100 km/h, reaching 200 km/h in just 8.9 seconds. The top speed is 330 km/h. Supercar figures indeed.
    The transmission shifts gears ever so smoothly in every gear as well as perfectly executed blipping when downshifting. Even in the 385 PS Carrera 911, power is more than sufficient for everyday driving, thanks to the well-engineered and programming of the engine and transmission, delivering immediate response through from the correct gear.
    As for the manual transmission Carrera S, the gear ratios are just too tall, with second gear reaching 125 km/h and third gear close to 200 km/h! Fortunately, the engine is very ‘elastic’ and flexible, with 530 Nm of torque available from 2,300 to 5,000 rpm. The joy of pressing the clutch pedal and rowing your own gears definitely takes precedence.

    Steering and handling

    The electric power steering is still one of the benchmarks in steering quality providing precision and feedback.
    Thanks to larger tyres as well as the wider front tracks, the Porsche 911 handles every flow of bend and curves with immense stability and surefootedness. Perhaps, too stable, as lifting off the throttle is met with clinical stability rather than alive-ness that 911 is known for.

  • Ride Comfort

    Porsche 911 – Ride Comfort

    It is getting better but the sports car still has a suspension setting that causes some discomfort at city speeds. Cabin while doesn’t get disturbed by wind noise, tyre noise seems to be an issue, given the large size it is running on now.

  • Fuel Comusmption

    Porsche 911 – Fuel Economy

    The fuel consumption of the 385 PS Porsche 911 is 9.0 litres per 100 km (11.1 km/L) and goes all the way to 12.0 litres per 100 (8.3 km/L) for the 650 PS Porsche 911 Turbo S under the WLTP testing standard.

  • Conclusion

    Porsche 911 – Conclusion

    The Porsche 911 is still the benchmark for premium sports cars thanks to its great ability for straight line acceleration, turning and the high quality it delivers.
    The interior is leaps and bounds better than many of its rivals as well as its predecessor and this alone is quite an attraction for many prospects.
    However, similar to many new products, the performance envelope has moved so much higher making the previous generations seem more fun to drive with lower horsepower. The Porsche 911 seems to have this issue too, as the car feels very isolated and rather anonymous at low speeds.
