New Porsche 911

For Porsche fans a new 911 is always met with guarded anticipation, a redesign of a car with a cult fallowing and a heritage like the 911 has to be spot on. But the team in Stuttgart has done it again, somehow they have managed to reinvent the 911 once again. The 911 styling has always been evolutionary and the changes on the all new 991 are big, and are more than skin-deep. The car is about two inches longer than the current 911, and features revised six-cylinder engines. The base Carrera now uses a 3.4-liter direct-injected flat-six, producing 350 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, while the Carrera S will use a direct-injected 3.8-liter unit, delivering 400 hp. Both engines will be mated to a seven-speed manual (yes, we said it) or PDK dual-clutch transmission, either of which can be had with launch control.

We'll have the official details in the coming weeks in anticipation of the new 911's official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
