SDAP (Sime Darby Auto Performance) today introduced the new Porsche 911 Carrera, available in three outstanding variants: the 911 Carrera, 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S. The new 911 further extends its position as the best in its class in terms of performance and efficiency.
Advanced development of the flat engines into turbocharged units has given the world‘s bestselling sports car a boost in power along with significantly improved fuel economy.
On its exterior, the 911 Carrera impresses with an evolutionary yet further sharpened design, while inside it features the new Porsche Communication Management system (PCM) for the first time with improved connectivity and real-time traffic information. The new PCM with its state- of-the-art touchscreen is as easy to operate as a smartphone and offers new Porsche Car Connect features, including traffic information, Google Earth and Google Street View.
Three-liter six-cylinder with bi-turbo charging pushes the 911 Carrera to 370 hp (272 kW) and the 911 Carrera S gets up to 420 hp (309 kW). In both models, that is 20 hp more than previously. The sports cars also offer a full measure of torque at 450 and 500 Nm, respectively. It is available from 1,700 rpm, and the engines have a usable speed range of up to 7,500 rpm. These are the characteristic data of exceptionally free-revving sports car engines. Performance new record sprint times: the 911 Carrera Coupé with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and the Sport Chrono Package has a zero to 100 km/h sprint time of 4.2 seconds (now 0.2 sec faster), and the S-model 3.9 seconds (0.2 sec faster). This is the first 911 Carrera to break the four-second barrier.
Efficiency Fuel consumption per 100 km is around twelve per cent lower because of Porsche turbocharging technology. The 911 Carrera with PDK transmission now consumes just 7.4 liters of fuel per 100 km (0.8 liter less), while the S-model with PDK consumes 7.7 l/100 km (1.0 liter less).
Chassis Ride height has been lowered ten millimeters, the further developed active PASM chassis is standard and rear-axle steering is an option in the Carrera S. The new 911 Carrera significantly extends the spread between sportiness and comfort once again. The new automatic Post-Collision Braking System is standard.
The aerodynamics of the 911 improves efficiency and driving dynamics by virtue of new automatic cooling air flaps. Air drag and aerodynamic lift are reduced in interplay with the variable rear spoiler.
The 2016 Porsche Carrera line-up starts off with a retail price of RM 870,000. The 911 Carrera S rings in at RM 970,000 and the Carrera 4S tops it off at RM 1,040,000. All prices do not include insurance but include a standard 4-year warranty.
