The Unique 992 Porsche 911
With the World Premiere of the Porsche 911 992 approaching, the company is seeking to increase anticipation. Mark Webber, an ex-Formula One driver, was able to drive and see this car without the typical camouflage. The 992 contains the biggest changes since the 991’s release. After returning from the fast laps at Porsche’s development center in Weissach, Webber stated:
“In a word, that was awesome. There are so many highlights. The wide front axle, for example, seemed to give it greater cornering performance and turning-in became even more precise. The different front and back wheel sizes make a big difference to stability when you’re changing direction quickly too. As for the design, I love it: it’s very clear and typical Porsche.” – Mark Webber
Obviously, this statement provides clarity that this car is quite a beast of a machine. Let’s take a small dip into the changes that will be occurring with the 992 below.
Some Basics on the 992
The Porsche 911 992 is a stunning enhancement, inside and out. Firstly, the base model is going to jump from 370 hp to 385 hp. But, the Carrera S will leap from 420 hp to 450hp. Furthermore, the GTS should reach around 480 hp. Beyond the power gains, the car has a new rear fascia with wide rear body work (72 inches wide). With a wider rear body, this allows for a larger active spoiler as well. But, to note, the wheelbase did not change. Currently, the plan is to sell the car with a 19” front wheel and 20” rear wheel staggered setup. To comfort these rims, Pirelli P Zero tires are brought into play.
Porsche Continues to Improve the 911
Through time, Porsche continues to improve the 911 model. Moving to the 992, this car has undergone drastic changes since its first debut into the world. With the 992, Porsche shows that even cars that seem great, can be even better. The Porsche 911 is probably the company’s most popular car worldwide, with people of all ages appealing to it. With all of the hype, Porsche is anticipating a leap forward in sales as well. Obviously, Mark Webber was brought it for marketing purposes to help Porsche reach more fans. But, it was definitely a good idea. In conclusion, the 992 is another Porsche for auto dreamers worldwide.
