911 Carrera S Rs 1.82 Crore
911 Carrera S Cabriolet Rs 1.99 Crore
The new 911 continues to be powered by a 3.0-litre, flat six, turbo-petrol engine. Power has gone up to 450PS and 530Nm of torque, up from the previous iterations 420PS and 500Nm. The Carrera S does 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds. The 911 can be optioned with Porsche’s Sport Chrono package which adds launch control and an updated map for the 8-speed PDK gearbox. Top speed for the new 911 stands at 308 kmph.
The 2019 iteration has grown wider and longer than the previous car. The new 911 gets a longer bonnet with two creases running down the middle. The headlights remain the same, but Porsche says it will offer LED Matrix headlights as an option on the new 911. At the rear is where you can tell that you're following the 2019 model. You get a brake light that mimics the number ‘11’ in red, with nine slats on either side.
On the inside is where the 911 gets a major overhaul. It gets a sportier steering wheel and a new instrument console. The instrument panel has the typical Porsche rev counter at the centre, which is flanked by twin digital displays. On the centre console, you now get Porsche’s latest 10.9-inch Porsche connect infotainment system.
It seems like the same car, but the details help reveal that there is much more that has changed on this iconic German sports car.
