2020 Porsche 911 debuts at Los Angeles Motor Show

2020 Porsche 911 debuts at Los Angeles Motor Show

The 2020 Porsche 911 finally showed its face at the 2018 Los Angeles Motor Show in its Carrera S and Carrera 4S guises. Called the 992 generation, this new 911, as usual, comes with only subtle updates to the design, more power, an eight-speed dual clutch transmission, and a host of other updates.  

Keeping the 911 essence fresh, the 2020 Porsche 911 features a rear mounted flat-six engine. The 3.0-litre flat-6 engine in the Carrera S and Carrera 4S produces 443 hp, 23 more than the current 911. Torque figures are not out yet. This firepower lets the Carrera S accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in just over 3.5 seconds while the four-wheel-drive Carrera 4S will do it in a bit over 3.4 seconds. Adding the Sport Chrono Package to both the cars will slash 0.2 seconds from their times.

The 992 generation 911 will come with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. A manual gearbox, as per Porsche, “will be offered at a later date”. Apart from these changes, the 2020 Porsche 911 gets a standard wide body, pop out door handles and some active safety features.

Orders are open for the 2020 Porsche 911 but deliveries will commence by mid-2019.
