PORSCHE 911 CAR­RERA

Prestige (Singapore) - - RIDE -

Some 56 years – and more than a mil­lion ex­am­ples built – af­ter the 911 first saw the light of day, 2019 marks the ap­pear­ance of the lat­est gen­er­a­tion of the world’s great­est sports car. The en­gine is still in the wrong place and it still looks – bar­ring the more ag­gres­sive snout – pretty much like it al­ways does, but this new 992 model is more pow­er­ful (up to 380bhp on the en­trylevel Car­rera 2), faster, tech­no­log­i­cally smarter and han­dles bet­ter – and yet is re­as­sur­ingly not so very dif­fer­ent from the clas­sic 911 we’ve been in love with for decades. Hy­brids are com­ing, but for now at least, we can revel in the rasp of its six-pot boxer, wholly un­fil­tered.
