2012 Porsche 911 – New Info
According to German automotive magazine Autobild, the 2012 Porsche 911 will have more changes than initially expected. From the looks of the spy photo we can see that the car is a little bit longer, but now Autobild has found out the exact dimensions of the car. The 2012 model will be 56 mm longer in comparison to the current generation and will measure 4.49 meters in length. The wheelbase of the 911 will also be 10 mm longer and the car will stand 11 mm shorter. The standard version of the 911 will have the same width, but the Carrera version will have a 60 mm wider rear end.
All of the engines will be completely revised for the 2012 and with the new model; the 911 will come with an entirely new rear axle, especially developed for this model. The entry-level Boxer 3.6-liter power unit will be cut down to 3.4-liters and will output 345 hp (350 PS / 257 kW). With this engine, the 911 will do the 0-60 mph sprint in 4.8 seconds, onto a top speed of 180 mph (289 km/h). The fuel economy will be down by 13% to 27.7 mpg (8.5 liters / 100 km).
The Porsche 911 Carrera S will be fitted with a revised 3.8-liter engine that will produce 395 hp (400 PS / 294 kW). The car will reach 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and will have a top speed of 188 mph (302 km/h). Again, the fuel economy will be reduced by 14% to 25.8 mpg (9.1 liters / 100 km).
The new generation of the 911 will weigh 20 kg less and will come as standard with 19-inch rims while the Carrera S will be fitted with 20-inch wheels.
