The 991: a 911 passes a one million mark

Posted on 27. Nov, 2018 by in Porsche Canada

From 2011 onwards, a Type 991 represented a many technically modernized 911 indication to date. The 991 looked some-more comprehensive than any other 911 before – an outcome that was heightened by a wider lane and a wheelbase stretched by 10 centimetres. It also featured adaptive aerodynamics: a 911 was a initial array sports automobile from Porsche to adopt this record from a 918 Spyder hybrid super sports car.

The newly designed interior of a 991 was formed on a pattern of a Carrera GT. It sum classical 911 elements such as a 5 turn instruments – one as a high-definition multifunction arrangement – with complicated pattern and extended ergonomics. At a same time, a new Porsche Communication Management (PCM) was introduced with softened connectivity, multitouch guard and real-time trade information.

The code idol was some-more jaunty and some-more comprehensive than ever before. The lightweight physique in aluminium-steel pattern was again some-more firm and helped to revoke a weight by 45 kilograms. The entry-level six-cylinder engine done do with a banishment of 3.4 litres, though still grown 350 PS. The S models constructed 400 PS from 3.8 litres, and a GTS even delivered 430 PS from a same displacement.

Following a new book of a 991 launched in 2015, a 911 Carrera models also relied on a energy of dual turbochargers. In multiple with a three-litre engine, a energy outputs of a 3 Carrera versions, standard, S and GTS, were now 370 (911 Carrera: Fuel expenditure sum 8.3 – 7.4 l/100 km; CO2 emissions 190 – 169 g/km), 420 (911 Carrera S: Fuel expenditure sum 8.7 – 7.7 l/100 km; CO2 emissions 199 – 174 g/km) and 450 PS (911 Carrera GTS: Fuel expenditure sum 9.4 – 8.3 l/100 km; CO2 emissions 212 – 188 g/km) respectively. A 911 Carrera accelerated from 0 to 100 km/h in reduction than 4 seconds. The fuel expenditure and empty emissions were reduced.

The accessible energy also reached new measure with a Turbo and GT variants, with no reduction than 700 PS (911 GT2 RS: Fuel expenditure sum 11.8 l/100 km; CO2 emissions 269 g/km) in a 911 GT2 RS. With a tip speed of 340 km/h, this was a fastest series-production 911 in a indication history. The 911 GT3 RS with 520 PS (911 GT3 RS: Kraftstoffverbrauch kombiniert 12,8 l/100 km; CO2-Emission 291 g/km) from a 4.0-litre high-speed naturally-aspirated engine featured some-more motorsports record than Porsche had ever before offering in an on-road vehicle.

A prominence of a indication operation was a 911 Targa, that incorporated a classical thought of this judgment with a far-reaching bar instead of a B pillars, and sum this with a crafty roof design. Other highlights were indication variants such as a weight-optimised 911 Carrera T, a intensely lightweight 911 R, that was constructed in a singular book of 991 vehicles, as good as a 911 GT3 RS with a weight of usually 1,370 kilograms. The special-edition indication “50 years of 911” was also rarely coveted, with accurately 1,963 units being built. An critical place in a company’s story is assigned by a Irish Green sports automobile with countless disdainful facilities that rolled off a prolongation line in Zuffenhausen on 11 May 2017: a one-millionth 911. The 450 PS valuables stays in a tenure of Porsche AG.

The 991 era of a 911 was a comprehensive best seller for Porsche. 217,930 units were built in a duration from 2011 to 31 Oct 2018 and counting. In total, Porsche has constructed 1,049,330 array 911s given a entrance in 1963 to finish of Oct 2018.
