The eighth generation of the Porsche 911 was introduced on Wednesday (28) (in Brazil) in Los Angeles (USA). Known as the code 992, it retains the same basic design that has been the first generation since 1963, but has been combined with new dimensions and technological innovations.
The new 911 was 4.5 cm wider in front, gaining larger wheel boxes and the rear of the body now has the same width in all versions of the sport. The most interesting visual innovation is the new rear airfoil design, which is wider than previous generations.
Inside, Porsche has changed a lot and became more technological. Inspired by the 1970s, the sports car now features a new 10.9-inch multimedia system and a dashboard that connects the traditional center and analog turntable with two configurable digital displays.
According to the German brand, the new 911 First World Wagon will be equipped with a wet-track mode, capable of detecting the presence of water on the track and automatically preparing the vehicle systems for this line condition. The list of technological items also includes a night vision camera with thermal imaging, adaptive autopilot and emergency braking assistance.
In the mechanics, the turbocharged 6.0-cylinder supercharged turbo diesel was improved and now develops 450 hp in Carrera S and Carrera 4S versions (30 hp gains over 911 from the 7th generation). With the optional Sport Chrono Carrera 4S, it accelerates from 0-100 km / h in 3.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 306 km / h.
