Dave at NueVuePhotography shared this video with us showing a 2012 Porsche 911 (991) Carrera S doing a 12.04 quarter mile run at a local drag trip somewhere in the US. The video was shot about two weeks ago.
Just a small recap for you all. The latest member of the Porsche 911 Carrera S 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.
