As the iconic model line enters its 55th year in production the new eighth generation of the Porsche 911 has been revealed – the 992 series the new 911 has passed through an evolutionary process.– but with a heavily revised range of six-cylinder turbo petrol engines that are more powerful than before.


Open Youtube Page


The new 911 is available to order now in Carrera S and 4S forms equipped with a PDK gearbox, priced from £93,110 and £98,418 respectively. UK deliveries start next March.

992 3.0 Carrera - 385 hp / 380 bhp
992 3.0 Carrera S - 450 PS / 444 bhp with 0-60mph in 3.5 sec
992 3.0 Carrera 4S - 450 PS / 444 bhp with 0-60mph in 3.4 sec

This advantage is increased by another 0.2 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono Package. Top speeds are now 191mph (911 Carrera S) and 190mpg for the all-wheel-drive version.






The new Porsche is one of the biggest attractions at this week’s Los Angeles motor show. It adopts revised horizontally opposed six-cylinder petrol engines that feature a new fuel injection process for added combustion efficiency among a number of significant upgrades aimed at increasing its competitiveness against two-door rivals.

The turbocharged 3.0-litre units, which continue to be mounted in the rear, offer slightly more power than their predecessors. They can be mated to either a standard seven-speed manual or a new eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.





In the new rear-wheel-drive Carrera S and four-wheel-drive Carrera 4S, the reworked powerplant delivers 30bhp more than before, at 444bhp. Together with the revised gearing of the new dual-clutch gearbox, this results in a 0-62mph time that’s 0.4sec faster for both of the new 911 launch models, at 3.7sec for the Carrera S and 3.6sec for the Carrera 4S.

These times are shortened by a further 0.2sec with the inclusion of the optional Sport Chrono Package. This brings launch control, revised gearbox software that allows faster gearshifts and a sport response function for added performance. As a result, it provides the new 911 Carrera 4S with a 0-62mph that is 0.6sec inside the time of the old 911 Carrera 4 GTS, at just 3.4sec.

Despite the claim of improved aerodynamics, top speeds are little changed from the outgoing seventh-generation’s, with the Carrera S put at 191mph and the heavier Carrera 4S at 190mph. Combined fuel consumption on the superseded NEDC cycle is also close to the old 911’s, at 31.7mpg for the Carrera S and 31.4mpg for the Carrera 4S.

Known under the internal codename 992, the new 911 has been extensively re-engineered. It features a new platform structure with a greater amount of aluminium in its rear section, improving weight distribution. It also receives a revised chassis, which brings rear-wheel steering to both Carrera and Carrera S models for the first time in a move that, Porsche claims, provides the 911 with added agility and improved high-speed stability.





Stylistically, the new 911 continues the evolutionary theme that has characterised all of its predecessors since the introduction of the original in 1963. The 2019 model, pictured here in production guise for the very first time, is the second to be wholly designed under the guidance of Porsche design boss Michael Mauer, who also oversees the design activities for the whole of the Volkswagen Group.

Overall, the initial coupé model takes on a more muscular appearance, with tauter surfacing and added width to the rear wings. In a departure from tradition, Porsche has done away with offering two body structures in differing widths. Instead, it will provide the new 911 with one standard body that has rear wings described as being slightly broader than those on the wider body of the old 911.

Up front, a new bumper features a more prominent splitter element along its leading edge as well as a trio of larger cooling ducts. These are mounted outboard and feature three horizontal louvres, each to better channel air to the front-mounted radiators. Above the outer cooling ducts, Porsche has fitted new slimline LED driving lights that, like those of the old model, double as indicator units.





The 992 model also adopts a longer bonnet with more angular leading edges and a more defined indent through its middle section as well as redesigned headlights that have a more rounded shape than the elliptical units of the earlier 991-series 911. The new headlights, which feature matrix LED tech on some models, are mounted within visibly wider front wings with slightly larger wheel houses than before. The wing on the right continues to house the filler flap for the front-mounted fuel tank.

Further back, the exterior mirrors continue to be housed on frameless doors, but they have been restyled and enlarged slightly. The door handles are also new and now sit flush with the body when the door is closed for added aerodynamic efficiency.

Classic elements such as the comparatively upright windscreen and shape of the glasshouse have been brought over without much change. At the rear, there is a wider window with more rounded top edges than that used by the old model, a newly developed spoiler that deploys upwards to provide added downforce at speed and revised OLED tail-lights that, in a move mirroring other recent new Porsche models’, are now connected in the middle by a full-width LED light band.





Other changes include new Porsche identification, revised model badges that feature the 911 name for the first time and a more heavily structured rear bumper with a wide black valance cover that houses air ducts for the engine bay and large oval tailpipe openings.

Porsche has yet to divulge the standard wheel sizes but says the 911 will accept the same sized wheels as its predecessor, with 20in accommodated up front and 21in at the rear.

The new 911 is bigger in every vital exterior dimension, although the only confirmed measurement is a 45mm increase in its front track. However, officials have advised that it has a slightly longer wheelbase than before for improved packaging of the interior and drivetrain.

The cabin of the new 911 has received a more noticeable update than the exterior, with a dashboard that, Porsche says, has been inspired by that used by 911 models from the 1970s. It features a more angular design than today’s 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 traditional five-dial instrument binnacle receives a central analogue rev counter but digital displays for all other information conveyed to the driver. There is also a standard 10.9in touchscreen monitor within the centre of the dashboard for the Porsche Communication Management system. This groups the infotainment and other connectivity functions, including online navigation featuring swarm-based data, together in a central unit.

Between the driver and front passenger is a new centre console. It houses a newly designed gearlever, electronic handbrake switch and a combination of touch-based and toggle-style switchgear for ancillary functions.

The adoption of a new 12V electrical architecture has also allowed Porsche to equip the 911 with a series of new driving assistance systems. These include a so-called wet mode that detects water on the road and calibrates the Porsche Stability Management system accordingly; an adaptive cruise control function with automatic distance control; night vision assist with a thermal-imaging camera; and a brake assist system that detects an impending collision and initiates emergency braking if necessary.

Other new functions include a trio of apps, which are being made available for the first time on the new 911. The Porsche Road Trip app is intended to help in planning, organising and navigating over selected routes. The Porsche Impact app lets you calculate the financial contributions to climate-based projects required to offset CO2 emission. Finally, the Porsche 360+ app is described as a personal lifestyle assistant.

Although Porsche has confirmed just one engine for the new 911 – the 444bhp turbocharged 3.0-litre unit used by the initial Carrera S and Carrera 4S models but others are planned. They include a less powerful version of the flat six in price-leading Carrera and Carrera 4 models, as well as even more powerful variants in future GTS and Turbo models.

Porsche is also developing plug-in hybrid versions of the latest 911. However, they are unlikely to figure in the line-up until closer to a planned 2022 facelift, at which point the new model is due to receive a 48V electric system that supports not only part-time electric drive but also a new range of semi-autonomous driving functions.

New assistance WET MODE systems increase safety and comfort

In a world first, Porsche has developed Wet mode, included as standard. This function detects water on the road, preconditions the control systems accordingly and warns the driver, who can then set up the vehicle for a particular emphasis on safety, by simply pushing a button or using the mode switch on the steering wheel (Sport Chrono Package).

The warning and brake assist system, also fitted as standard, detects the risk of collisions with moving objects and initiates emergency braking if necessary. Night Vision Assist with a thermal imaging camera is optionally available for the 911 for the first time. The adaptive cruise control option includes automatic distance control, stop-and-go function, reversible occupant protection and an innovative autonomous Emergency Assist function.

Digital applications: “Road Trip”, “360+” and “Impact”

“Porsche Road Trip” supports car enthusiasts in planning, organising and navigating special trips. The curated routes it offers include exclusive hotel and restaurant recommendations as well as points of interest and viewpoints along the route.

“Porsche 360+” has the goal of allowing the customer to enjoy the Porsche experience even while away from the vehicle; the heart of “Porsche 360+” is a personal lifestyle assistant that is available to customers around the clock. The assistant is intended to make everyday life easier and exclusive experiences possible.

“Porsche Impact” is an emissions calculator. It calculates the financial contributions that Porsche customers can pay to offset their CO2 footprint. They themselves can choose the internationally certified climate projects in which to invest. The projects available are spread out all over the world and focus on wind, hydro and solar power, as well as forest protection.

OK, I'll go first.

The negatives.


The view of the rear, especially with the spoiler up, just doesn't work for me.

The wide body looks too contrived although the flared front arches go some way towards balancing it out.

Although I haven't seen the actual dimensions it does look as though the 911 has now become a GT car. The proportions are right but the 21" rear wheels give the game away.

The positives.


Everything else.

It doesn't grab me like the 991.1 did the first time I saw it but it's still a magnificent car. Sadly I know I'd struggle to get in and out of one by the time I will ever be able to consider buying one but I'm looking forward to test-driving some demo cars. Smile

I can't believe my own car is now 4 generations out of date! Surprised

To add to the negatives, no 4 widebody derivatives, the weight (more isn’t less?) the engine obviously (although only a madman would argue with the crazy figures, it is progress indeed) and yes the rear is hideous. With modern design always seemingly moving towards angles, it strange they rounded it even more than the 991? The 997 beats all later incarnations at the R send.

Bigger is let’s face it inevitable, and I love that interior worship overall I hated the 991 when it came out, really like the 992 Thumb

February's edition of EVO (256) gives a few pages to the 992.
In addition, there are various other articles, including one of the journo's describing his experience when he had the keys to the 919.

I like the look of it. And i particularly like the way the dash has reverted to the classic separate dial layout. I give it thumbs up!

I think it looks great, apart from:
1) the rear - just too fussy and over-styled, and I dislike the vertical vents, they should be horizontal
2) the wheels - too big, especially the rears. Dread to think how much new rear tyres will cost.

The interior looks lovely (it's from the Panamera, no?), and I imagine the performance will be fantastic. At over £110k when options added it's a hugely expensive car.

Another point: will it make the 992 Turbo redundant? I know this one has turbos, but it's not a Turbo, if you follow me. And with 450 bhp it makes me wonder if a Turbo makes any sense.

Another point: will it make the 992 Turbo redundant? I know this one has turbos, but it's not a Turbo, if you follow me. And with 450 bhp it makes me wonder if a Turbo makes any sense.


3.5 secs 0-62 is mad, yes I agree the turbo is redundant, knowing Porsche’s conservative figures that’s closer to 3.

what if the turbo is a turbo-e? As in a turbo but with a hybrid electrical supplemental motor. A la a cooking 918? Then you’re talking 0-60 in 2-2.5 seconds? But with 4 seats..... Surprised

Actually on reflection that’s only a question of when, not if..... Scratch Chin

I really like it. I look forward to picking one up in 10 years time on the second hand market.

In the meantime, I'll hopefully pick up a 991.1 in 3/4 years time.
