Living up to the title of one of the world’s best sports cars is no easy feat. Only a company with as much experience as Porsche could possibly hold on to that title year after year. Now PT Eurokars Artha Utama is introducing the new generation of 911 Carrera that is here to make sure Porsche keeps its place at the pinnacle of sports car manufacturers. For two decades, the 911 Carrera has been one of the world’s best-selling sports cars. Each generation of the Carrera has lived up to the name, and the newest generation is no exception.
The new 911 Carrera is more than well-equipped to stay ahead of its class. Innovative turbocharged flat engines coupled with an advanced chassis bring performance and driving comfort to new heights. The six-cylinder engine with bi-turbo charging increases horsepower in both models. Both models are able to reach torque of 7500rpm, making them exceptional free-revving sports car engines.
The 911 Carrera only takes 4.2 seconds to get to 100kmh, while the Carrera S clocks in at 3.9 seconds— the very first Porsche sports car to break the four-second barrier. The turbocharging engines not only increase performance, but also increase fuel efficiency. Both cars now consume 12 per cent less fuel per 100km.
The new Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) chassis lowers the ride height for even driving pleasure. Stability around fast corners is improved while overall comfort is enhanced thanks to the new shock absorbers. Driving at high speeds is now even steadier with active rear-axle steering.
Meanwhile, the interior of the new 911 Carrera models has also been upgraded for ultimate comfort on the road. The improved Porsche Communication Management (PCM) comes with a multi-touch display for an expanded range of functions. With an intuitive display that works like a smartphone, navigation is simpler than ever. Real-time traffic information is now available with the integration of Google Earth and Google Street View. Smartphones can also be connected to the PCM for even more functions such as remote control of vehicle functions, transfer of destinations for navigation, and music streaming by third-party services.
The latest generation of Porsche 911 Carrera and Carrera S sees great improvements made to already great cars. The two new models look to have no problems surpassing their predecessors. For more information on the new Porsche 911 Carrera and Carrera S, visit the Eurokars website here.
