Exclusive White Porsche 911 (991) Carrera S on Autobahn A6

The brand new 2012 Porsche 911 (991) has been improved on numerous subjects, but track times were not released up to now. According to reports by Go Auto, the Carrera S managed to drive off 13 seconds of its old time round the famous Nurburgring Nordschleife.

The new 991 Carrera S set a time of 7:40 around the Green Hell, which makes it as fast as the GT3 track-focused version of the 997 generation it replaces. Quite humiliating if you just bought a GT3, but on the other hand a great future perspective with Turbo and GT3 models to be released over the upcoming years.

Just a small recap. The latest member of the Porsche family is powered by a direct injection 3.8 liter flat six which delivers 400hp and 440Nm of torque. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a seven-speed manual transmission or the seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), which improves the performance.

With the manual transmission, acceleration from nought to 100km/h is done in 4.5 seconds. The 911 Carrera S with PDK manages to accelerates to 100km/h in 4.3 seconds. Pressing the Sport Plus button on the optional Sport Chrono package cuts that to 4.1 seconds. The top speed is 304km/h.
