Porsche lobs entry-level 992 911

New Porsche 911 Carrera to arrive in showrooms soon, from $229,500 plus on-roads

Porsche logo30 Jul 2019

PORSCHE Cars Australia has announced the arrival of its entry-level 992-generation 911 coupe and cabriolet range, set to check in to local showrooms in the fourth quarter of this year priced from $229,500 plus on-road costs for the coupe.

 

This sees the coupe positioned $35,500 below the Carrera S version.

 

For the cabrio, the new entry point is $251,000, placing it $30,100 below its higher-performance S counterpart.

 

The Carrera uses the same 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged six-cylinder boxer engine as the S, detuned from 331kW/530Nm to 283kW of power at 6500rpm – up 11kW on its predecessor – and 450Nm of torque from 1950-5000rpm.

 

Official combined-cycle fuel consumption is rated at 9.0 litres per 100km (coupe) and 9.2L/100km (cabriolet), while emissions are pegged at 206/210 grams of CO2 per kilometre.

 

Power is channelled to the rear wheels via an eight-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission, with all-wheel-drive variants set to follow soon.

 

Completing the sprint from standstill to 100km/h takes 4.2 seconds (coupe) or 4.4s (cabrio), on their way to a top speed of 293km/h. Two-tenths are shaved off the 0-100km/h time when the Sport Chrono package is optioned.

 

The 911 Carrera features a mixed set of alloy wheels, with 19-inch front wheels wrapped in 235/40 ZR rubber, while at the rear 20-inch alloys and 295/35 ZR tyres are fitted.

 

Stopping power comes courtesy of 330mm brake discs with four-pot monobloc fixed callipers.

 

According to Porsche, standard specification on the Carrera range largely mirrors that of the Carrera S, with features including a 10.9-inch touchscreen display, twin 7.0-inch instrument cluster displays, LED matrix headlights, Park Assist with surround-view camera, Comfort Access, air treatment ioniser, and Night Vision Assist with a thermal imaging camera.

 

Safety features include adaptive cruise control, warning and brake assist system, and Wet Mode, which adjusts the car’s ESC system to create a foolproof drive mode for slippery and trying conditions.

 

Standard equipment specific to the Australian market includes 14-way heated comfort seats, lane-change assist, a Bose surround sound system, digital radio, comfort access, metallic paint, auto-dimming rearview mirrors and a reversing camera.

 

Through the first half of 2019, Porsche has sold 339 examples of the 911, representing a 5.3 per cent increase over the 322 from the same time last year in a segment that has decreased by 5.4 per cent.

 

As usual, it comfortably leads the $200,000-plus sportscar segment, ahead of the Ferrari range (121), Mercedes-AMG GT (63) and Bentley Continental (61).
