2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S and 4S debut: Pure refined Porsche - Autoblog

Porsche unveiled the eighth generation of its 911 sports vehicle at the 2018 LA Auto Show on Tuesday. The 2019 911's shape is quite familiar though there are a few styling changes.

Of course, it wouldn't be a Porsche 911 without a rear-mounted, flat-six engine - and that's exactly what Porsche has installed here.

Porsche says the forced inductions are now more fuel efficient thanks to improved injection process and a new layout for the turbochargers and charge air cooling system.

There's also a titanium exhaust system, which is 7kg lighter than the standard unit and has a new routing that is claimed to enhance the exhaust note. Standard equipment includes a new eight-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission (one more than the 991).

Powering the 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4 is a is a turbocharged flat-six engine which now produces 450 PS (331 kW), a 30PS increase in power compared to the previous generation model. Porsche showed off the 2020 Porsche Carrera and Carrera S models - leaving the other variants, like the incredible GT2 RS, for a later date.

According to Porsche, the 911 Carrera S can do 0-60 miles per hour in 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 191 miles per hour when equipped with the PDK transmission and the Sport Chrono package. The top track speeds are now 191 miles per hour (911 Carrera S) and 190 miles per hour for the all-wheel-drive version. It'll also warn the driver of the change in conditions. With the exception of the front and rear fasciae, the entire outer skin is now made of aluminum. The engine makes 443 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque, up 23 horsepower and 22 pound-feet over the outgoing model.

Extra power means improved performance.

While the silhouette of the new 911 is the same as its predecessors, a closer look reveals that it has a more muscular appearance, with tauter surfacing and larger rear wings. The new system utilizes acoustic sensors in the front arches, which detect when the road is damp and primes the stability control and anti-lock brake systems accordingly.

The whole exterior shell excluding the front and rear sections is made entirely out of alluminium and the car's door handles electronically pop out of the side of the auto, so they are completely flush when driving.

Classic elements like the comparatively upright windscreen and shape of the glasshouse are unchanged.

Just in case we'd forgotten what the old 911 looked like, Porsche brought along an example of every generation, including the oldest 911 model now held in Porsche's collection, a red 1964 coupe. Between the new LED headlights, the front luggage compartment lid with pronounced contours evokes the design of the first 911 generations. Will you be able to tell the difference in speed between the older and newer versions? The dashboard features a more angular design and comes with a new multi-function steering wheel equipped with the sports response rotary dial, allowing the driver to alter the car's drive modes. The new centre console houses a newly designed gearlever, electronic handbrake switch and a combination of touch-based and toggle-style switchgear for ancillary functions. The new range also gets insane gadgetry like Night Vision Assist with a thermal imaging camera as an option for when you need to go covert.

According to Porsche, the Carrera S can do 0-60 miles per hour in 3.3 seconds while the 4S can do it in 3.2 seconds.
