The new eighth generation Porsche 911 992 is now on sale at Master Cars in Hitchin Hertfordshire and we have to say we are very impressed ! It feels like the 911 has "matured" to suit modern motoring demands. To some Porsche purists and old school Porsche 911 fans this possibly isn't good news. To most and first time Porsche 911 buyers, they will be delighted with the progress.
In short the new 911 is on the same wheelbase as the old one, and still has the 3.0 Litre twin turbocharged flat six engine. That's possibly where the comparison ends ! The new 911 has so little steel in its construction it is officially an "aluminium monocoque" . The main reason for this is to offset the extra weight of the new technology.
From a technical point, the Turbochargers are bigger with more efficient intercoolers, along with other other engine tweaks from the injectors and valve opening. The PDK gearbox is an all new 8 speed set up. The car can be in 2wd or 4wd like the one we have. Front wheels are now 20" with 21" rear boasting a massive 305 section tyre. This is also a first for a standard Porsche 911, with only the GT having already adopted this set up.
This 4wd 992 feels incredibly sure footed and offers a superb ride quality, its here where you really notice the difference if you are familiar with driving the 911. Some have even remarked it feels more like a "GT" car and in some parts rightly so. However the faster you drive it, and it is incredibly quick especially in manual mode the more the car comes alive and reminds you that you are driving a supercar. With 0-60 in just 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 190 Mph you will never have time to get bored. It is alleged the car will reach its top speed whilst in 6th gear, and the longer 7th and 8th gears are there just to help with the economy. You can expect a very impressive 30 Mpg from this car and a full tank should give you a range of 350-400 miles from the 67 litre tank of the 4wd version. The Porsche 911 has always been tagged as a "daily driver" and some of the old normally aspirated 911 achieve this so nothing has changed in that respect. Yes its bigger and wider but in general we feel its a move in the right direction for this model, it feels like it has grown up. You still have the Porsche GT3 models which get such rave reviews for being one of the best driving Porsche 911 money can buy. This Porsche 911 992 Carrera 4S however offers an alternative and I am sure you could drive it all day long and not get fatigued. Its the modern day 911 auxilarating when driven fast, yet easily driven slowly. The cabin with its array of technology is a very nice place to be.
