The very essence of the sports car legend
The 911 (992) Carrera S is the very essence of the sports car legend, distilled into the sweet spot of the Porsche range.
With a lineage of eight generations, Porsche has honed the 911 to near engineering perfection for a rear-engine configuration, epitomized by the 444bhp 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged flat-6 engine coupled to its 8-speed twin-clutch gearbox of which Autocar stated “with familiarity you begin to fully appreciate the sensational alacrity of this quick-shifting eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox, the almost immediate response of this improved engine to throttle inputs, and the manner in which it enthusiastically spins to its 7500rpm redline as if it were normally aspirated”.
A choice of upgrades selected over the impressive standard equipment list for the Carrera S that benefit performance, usability and desirability in equal measure, these include a Sport Chrono package giving launch control, revised gearbox software, faster gearshifts and a sports response function that culminate in a 0.2-second reduction in 0-62mph via this up to a 20-second over-boost function, a front-axle lift system, a sports exhaust system in black, glass sunroof, matrix beam Dynamic Light System and Carrera Classic Wheels 20” and 21” at the front and rear respectively.
The design of the 992 continues the ethos of evolution not revolution and is set to continue its legendary iconic status as a result. In addition, the cabin has nods and echoes of classic 911 design whilst utilizing today’s technology, none more so demonstrated than the return to the flatter dashboard combined with a classic instrument binnacle layout including two seven-inch digital displays coupled with a traditional analogue tachometer. This particular example has also had numerous detailed upgrades and design flourishes to further enhance that timeless appearance and complement the SportDesign package gloss black elements. From Exclusive Design taillights to simple gloss black badging and gloss black electric folding exterior mirrors, the overall effect when viewed as a whole reiterates a design-led knowledgeable specifier for this car.
