The first thing that you should know about the Porsche 911 Carrera S 2015 is it is now turbocharged. This is a big step for the company since the significant change as it could be the world’s most iconic sports car in the car manufacturer’s 52-year history. Diehard fans of this model would need not have to worry as Porsche still capture the spirit of the 911 even with the significant changes to its design and specs.
The Porsche 911 Carrera S 2015 Could be the Company’s Most Iconic Sports Car To-Date
The Porsche 911 Carrera S 2015 is blisteringly fast as compared to the Carrera. It has 414bhp compared to the Carrera’s 365bhp. That is a 20bhp increase for both models, but the huge slug of torque is available from just 1,700rpm. The 911 no longer thrives on revs like it used to since it now has 450Nm in the Carrera and 500Nm for the S.
Just a push on the throttle and you will be pushed back into your seat. Even though there is only 45-kilograms of extra weight for the entire vehicle, the turbocharged surge of acceleration will give you an adrenaline rush as you excite your inner speed-demon.
When you opt for the seven-speed PDK dual-clutch auto with optional Sport Chrono package, the Carrera S 2015 will go from 0 to 62 mph in just a matter of 3.9-seconds. This makes the first 911 that can ever dip to that speed in under four seconds. This makes it a demon of a performing vehicle. The Carrera, on the other hand, is able to hit 62 mph in a matter of 4.2-seconds. This makes both cars 0.2 seconds faster than their predecessors.
But it’s not all about the speed when you take a look at this model, as there is one difficulty when it comes to turbocharged vehicles – lag. Still, the new 911 has a pretty good response for its throttle, and there is an urgent edge when the engine picks up. However, there is still that momentary pause when you catch the engine off boost.
The messages sent by the front wheels are relayed in a decent level of clarity. As such, it gives a certain boost of confidence to push the vehicle harder. It will then lean on the masses of grip and natural traction. This is all from the engine pressing the rear wheels into the surface.
The styling for the Porsche 911 Carrera S 2015 has not changed but there are subtle changes to its exterior looks and a whole lot of performance upgrades under the hood.
