Toronto – Ont. – As part of the model year changeover, a host of new equipment options will now be offered for the 911 Carrera series that were previously not available for the sports car. These include Porsche InnoDrive, which is already familiar from the Panamera and Cayenne, as well as a new Smartlift function for the front axle. For purists: seven-speed manual transmission with Sport Chrono package. A seven-speed manual transmission can now be ordered for all 911 Carrera S and 4S models as an alternative to the standard eight-speed PDK transmission. The manual transmission is combined with the Sport Chrono package and will therefore appeal above all to sporty drivers who derive more driving pleasure from changing gear themselves.
The Sport Chrono package also offers an automatic rev-match function. When the driver shifts down, this function automatically opens the throttle momentarily to increase the engine speed and adapt it to the higher gearbox speed in the lower gear for smooth downshifts, thereby preventing load change effects. The package also includes other sporty ingredients such as dynamic engine mounts, PSM Sport mode, the mode switch on the steering wheel with the modes Normal, Sport, Sport Plus, Wet and Individual (for an individual setup), as well as a stop watch and the Porsche Track Precision App. The 911 Carrera S with manual transmission accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 308 km/h. The curb weight of the 911 Carrera S Coupé with manual transmission is 1,480 kilograms – which is 45 kilograms less than the version with PDK.
In the 911 Carrera for the first time: Porsche InnoDrive and Smartlift The new model. Other new equipment options new lightweight and noise-insulated glazing is now also available for the Coupés in the 911 series. The weight advantage compared to standard glazing will be over four kilograms. The improvement in indoor acoustics achieved by reducing rolling noise and wind noise represents a further advantage. This is a lightweight laminated safety glass used in windscreen, rear screen and all door windows. The Ambient Light Design Package includes ambient lighting that can be adjusted in seven colours. A touch of colour is also added by the new exterior paint finish in the special colour Python Green.
