2012.5 Porsche 991 Carrera S *** SOLD***

13. September, 2015

Major evolutions of Porsche’s most famous model don’t come along that often which makes this latest 991 911 a big deal. Particularly given how Porsche has made some major changes: it’s longer, wider, smoother and there’s even a raft of enviro-friendly features designed to eke out extra economy. From the very first moments behind the wheel, the 991 is immediately and emphatically a genius motor car.

The 911 engine range is growing fast. The core range still offers a choice of downsized 3.4-litre in the Carrera or a 400bhp 3.8-litre in the Carrera S. The latter is amazing, capable of hitting 62mph in a 4.2 seconds and doing almost 190mph.

As for actually piloting it, this must be the easiest sports car in the world to drive. The choice PDK dual-clutch auto shifts through its seven ratios imperceptibly. The ride is compliant and very sporty, there’s almost no mechanical noise whatsoever.

The roomier new 911 cabin is as sturdy as ever, but is also far more luxurious. There are a lot of buttons on the Carrera GT-inspired centre console that gives the driver unrestricted access to focused driving. Porsche has retained the three cowled instruments and even their old-school graphics but they are supplemented by a new digital screen. Gearlever, steering wheel and pedals are all perfectly placed.

More economical as well as more powerful, the Carrera S averages 32.5mpg and emits just 205g/km in PDK guise. The 911 is amazingly clean for such a powerful car which also brings advantages in terms of running costs. The price is keen for such an incredibly able machine too, but that’s only if you manage to resist the compulsive lure of the humungous options list of which this particular Carrera S has plenty.

A few of the options ordered are,

-Platinum Silver Metallic Exterior
