2012 Porsche 911 Carrera, First Live Photos

Teased for many months, Porsche recently revealed the all-new 2012 911 and then showed us just how different the new shape is with a selection of impressive photos. Set to be officially revealed at the Frankfurt Auto Show we now have the first in-the-flesh pics of Porsche’s best-selling sports car from a private showing at the Porsche Museum.

Adding luxury, performance and even fuel economy the new Carrera comes powered by a 3.4-liter flat-six engine with 350-hp, allowing for a 4.4 second 0-60 mph time (4.2 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package). Carrera S models get a 3.8-liter flat-six with 400-hp, good for a 4.1 second 0-60 time (3.9 with the Sport Chrono Package and PDK).

Longer by 3.9-inches, the new 911 also has a shorter overall height.

Fuel saving technologies such as a start/stop system, brake energy regeneration and a world’s first 7-speed manual transmission help improve fuel economy. Also helping are better aerodynamics and a 100 lb weight savings over the outgoing model.

On sale in February, Carrera models will start from $82,100, with Carrera S models priced from $96,400.
