The 992 generation 911 has taken Porsche's classic recipe for success of elegant, sporty design with the latest in driver-focused performance technology and everyday practicality to new heights. The result? A truly unique product that sits in a class of its own.

Standard with the flat-six engine is a new 8-speed (PDK) transmission, allowing for efficient power delivery that complements the traction, stability and active system management systems, along with all-wheel-drive, to create a balance driving experience.

Power has also been turned up on the flat-six (443-hp) which makes putting the 992 Carrera through its paces rewarding, especially in and out of turns while having torque vectoring plus, dynamic chassis control and the optional ceramic composite brakes (16.1-inch/front, 15.3-inch/rear) all at play.

Five selectable modes (Normal, Sport, Sport Plus, Individual and Wet) via the Sport Chrono Package takes this experience a step further. The SPORT Response function provides up to a 20-second boost of power when you need it. Even in other modes you benefit with various chassis, engine and transmission tunes. Its also recommended for Cabriolet owners to offset the increased weight.

Improved aerodynamics deliver an aesthetically pleasing design finished with features like the latest in automotive LED technology housed through the 911 and in the new bar-style taillight assembly, sleek door handles, GT3-style exhaust tips and new color options that stand out the most. The cabin also went high tech, looking closer to the Panamera and Cayenne with high-resolution touch displays and overall heavy influence from Porsche's Advanced Cockpit concept.

Technology shows through with comfort. convenience and safety via Porsche Communication Management (PCM) delivering connectivity, Porsche Connect App that allows remote functions and the latest in assistive safety technology to keep you confident and in control behind the wheel.

The question is how much longer will the 911 retain its flat six layout? So many automakers are opting for smaller turbocharged engines and inevitably Porsche will have to follow suit in an effort to comply with raising emission and fuel economy regulations.

Till Porsche can develop hybrid and electric powertrains for models like this that will win purists over so much that they won't care about traditional powertrains that once defined these models.

It should be for as long as Porsche can keep up with not offering electric versions. Once everyone is used to the idea of electric, I imagine that's when they'll step in and offer at least one configuration. With a legendary producing, its challenging.
