When you’re buying a Porsche 911, you’re not just buying a sportscar that looks, more or less, just like its predecessor; you’re buying a piece of evolution or rather a piece of 911 legacy as contrary to popular belief, every new generation of the 911 is different (and better) than the one it replaces.

Its 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged flat-six has been given a 30 hp and 30 Nm bump from before, now making 450 hp with 530 Nm of torque.

This power increase is primarily down to the relocated intercoolers that now rests just below the rear bonnet for better cooling and revised turbocharger flow.

0 to 100 km/h now takes just 3.7 seconds in the rear-wheel drive Carrera S, while the all-wheel drive Carrera 4S does it in 3.6 seconds with both cars 0.4 seconds quicker than the models they replace.
