The fine folks at Porsche have given us our first look at the refreshed 911 Carrera and Carrera S, and the brand has once again hit a home run.
While the aesthetic updates may be more evolutionary than revolutionary, what’s under the hood will have fans clamoring to get behind the wheel. For the first time in the history of the 911, both base trims will be getting turbocharged engines. The base model 911 Carrera will pump out 370 horsepower from it’s 3.0-liter engine, while the “S” model will crank out 420 horsepower from the same power plant. These setups help the standard Carrera blitz from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds, while the speedier “S” offering hits the same milestone in just 3.7 seconds. Of course Porsche has made plenty of updates under the trunk lid as well. The 2-door also gets an improved version of their Porsche Active Suspension Management, optional rear-axle steering, and the brand’s new Communication Management System that includes Google Earth and Streetview integration, Apple CarPlay, and full gesture controls. The vehicle will start at $89,4000 when it begins hitting dealers next spring.
