The Legendary Icon
The Porsche 911 has shown an amazing resilience to the fashions of more than five decades. Its looks, drive and its purpose have been steadfast and yet adaptive. The cutline of the bonnet and its flyline hark back to the original 911. The 992-series 911 still does all the practical things that make the 911 such an appealing sports car - the upright cabin, the boot and the kid carrying rear seats plus the ability to swallow the NSHW, slip through traffic or a just trip to the grocery store.
Power comes from a twin-turbocharged 3.0 liter horizontally opposed 6 cylinder engine with 443hp and 530Nm. Coupled with a PDK eight-speed twin clutch gearbox, this 911 complete the 0 to 100kmh in 3.5 seconds with the Sports Chrono Package and a top speed of 308 kmh.
The Sports Exhaust system equipped on this car also makes every prod on the throttle an intoxicating 911 experience.
The car’s driving position achieves that clever trick of feeling low when you’re in, but not so low when you’re getting in, as it might with a mid-engined sports car. Visibility is great, and seat comfort, lateral support and adjustability are first-rate. The car’s instrumentation is now almost entirely digital, with the exception being the central analogue tacho dial – without which a Porsche simply wouldn’t feel at all familiar. The smaller meters for fuel level and water temperature remain in their familiar location on the outward extremes of the binnacle, presented as if they were analogue dials. The iconic Porsche Sports Chrono dial comes standard on our 911s.
This particular example is optioned with the rare Aerokit and the SportDesign side skirts which enhances the ground hugging stance and further underlines the 911’s racing DNA.
Based on the SportDesign package, the Aerokit comes with a range of aerodynamic enhancements: a distinctive front spoiler, a fixed rear spoiler and fixed rear wing, reminding you of Porsche’s GT vehicles.
The Aerokit has been engineered at Porsche’s development centre in Weissach where experts spent months optimizing the design and function. Prototypes were carefully honed in Porsche’s wind tunnel to ensure that the Aerokit fully delivers on its striking visual promise of reducing the uplift forces over both front and rear axle.
