2012 porsche 911

It will not look very different, but the next generation of the iconic rear-engine sports car will be lighter, meaner, cleaner, easier on gas, and more agile. Inevitably, the new 911s cost more too.

What we know about 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera

Next Generation Porsche 911 Carrera Porsche is already in trials, but it is not expected in Europe until the end of 2011 and the United States until early 2012. Why the apparent rush? As much as we can tell, Porsche will be ready for the limits of CO2 emissions much more severe starting ramp in 2011 for all major domestic markets in Germany and other EU countries. And, of course, it never hurts to have something new to talk.

Before speaking, but some guidance is in order. The current 911-line, new in the United States by 2005 and also known as the 997 series, won a series of changes to the 2009 Carrera rear wheel drive and all wheel drive Carrera 4 cups all-glass roof Targa coupes, cabriolets and convertibles. Among them: recasting "flat-6" engine with direct fuel injection and more power, the new Porsche PDK 7-speed automated manual transmission option to replace a conventional automatic lights, LED rear lights and traffic and revised interior with improved ergonomics and better touch screen navigation. A day at the same high performance 911 GT3 reaches dealerships in spring 2009. remaining 997 variants, the GT2 and Turbo Hot, in 2010.

The 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera is the code name 991, which means another complete redesign of the iconic rear-engined sports car. But it is typical of Porsche will be difficult to detect without a 997 parked nearby. Buyers expect classic style 911, and Porsche is not about to risk selling a lot playing with him. However, reports of the magazine Auto Britain and Germany, Auto Bild 991 shows the proportions of the 997 slightly modified because the wheelbase is said to extend about 4 inches while overall length has not changed. These sources also expect wider taxiway, so the new 911 will be the beam front and rear. To add to the hard aspect is a new front fascia with a center of the grill of three major elements.

Several engine changes also mark the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera. Anchoring one end is a revised base model S pack a reduced version of the 3.4-liter horizontally opposed persistent 6-cylinder engine. Despite the smaller engine would have been 3 .4 350 horsepower, up five from the 3.6-liter Carrera current base unit. Then comes a new Carrera RS, replace today's S-model. It uses the same 3.8-liter engine, but with 15 extra horsepower from 2009 to a nice piece, round, 400th Output torque slip a little, down from eight to 280 lb.-ft. for the 3.4 15 and 295 lb.-ft. for the 3.8. However, a decrease of weight - at least 130 books in our account - should provide slightly better acceleration times, plus better fuel economy and CO2 emissions. While it is too early for exact figures, sources of suspicion RS models will scale of 0 to 60 km / h in about four seconds.

Transmissions will again consist of a standard 6-speed manual and optional PDK (initial reference a German term for "double clutch.")

The reduction of the expected mass for the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera comes from the wider use of carbon fiber, plastics, composites and other lightweight materials, as a result of lessons learned to the mid-engine V10 Carrera GT supercar . How these things will be used, and where, remains to be seen, however.
