It’s time to dial up ‘911’

The very first official press photos of the new 2012 Porsche 911 were leaked onto the internet well ahead of the sports coupe's world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show in mid-September. The new Porsche is closely modeled after the outgoing 997.

Instantly recognizable, the model has a familiar front fascia with a redesigned air intake and restyled fog lights. However, there are differences among the similarities. The more obvious alterations include the concave front LED daytime running lamps, the door-mounted exterior mirrors and the slimmer and more futuristic looking LED tail lamps that adorn the more heavily sculpted rear end. As anticipated, the new 911's interior blends the two styling worlds of the 997 and the Panamera into one. A key highlight is the pronounced lower part of the center console that hosts a number of buttons.

The entry-level model is slated to adopt a 3.4 liter flat six engine with 345 hp. Moving up, the Carrera S with a 3.8 liter flat six will reward drivers with 395 hp, while the Turbo is rumored to have an output of approximately 542 hp. Power is channeled to the driving wheels for the 3.4 and 3.8L models via a new 7 speed manual gearbox or an optional PDK transmission.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
