Featuring a naturally aspirated flat six engine expected to make 450 hp, the newest 911 will be a stronger performer than the outgoing model. As any driving enthusiast knows, a powerful engine doesn’t mean much without the equipment to keep it on track, which is something Porsche has long been known for doing well.
While the mantra won’t change at all, the car will have the large rear wing that was absent from the test mules until very recently. Showing off the longer wheelbase of the 991 chassis, it also has a front spoiler and air outlet to create additional downforce for the nose at high speeds.
Porsche claims the new 911 Carrera S with the optional Sport Chrono Package can lap the Nurburgring a the same time as the current 997 GT3. That said, the new GT3’s time should be blistering.
