The optional PDLS Porsche Dynamic Cornering Bi-Xenon headlights offer exceptional brightness, even in challenging conditions. The light beam pattern actually adjusts from side to side depending on speed and steering wheel movement to light up round a corner increasing your line of sight at night.
Production of the all-new generation 991-series 911 Carrera S began in 2011, it featured a revised 3.8 litre engine with Direct Fuel Injection DFI with increased power/torque, revised suspension system, lighter restyled body, larger air intakes, sculpted LED rear and front daylight running lights, all new Porsche Communication Management PCM 3.1 System with touchscreen, hard drive navigation/music jukebox and Bluetooth audio streaming as well as phone connectivity (as options – fitted to this car). Despite a 100mm longer wheelbase, overall length is only increased by around 40mm and weight is actually reduced by 45kg due to intelligent use of composite alloys that not only add up to 25% rigidity, but reduce weight too. The roofline is actually lower than the previous 997 generation 2, however cabin space has also significantly increased in all dimensions, making this an even more useable, yet stylish, updated 911 with clear classic Porsche lineage.
“Once again, Porsche has hit the nail absolutely plumb on the head with its most treasured sports car and gone straight back to the top of the class. The 991-generation Porsche 911 is a triumph. Those who frowned at the mention of so much efficiency-enhancing technology, or who suggested the 911 would somehow lose its dynamic sparkle this time around, should simply have had more faith in the company that has delivered this incredible car to into its fifth decade. Here’s the bottom line: at the limit of grip, the 991 still handles like a true 911. And during sporting road driving, it communicates, entertains and involves as vividly as any that proceeds it.”
CAR Magazine 2012
Our hand selected Porsche 911 Carrera S looks stunning in its metallic coat of Sapphire Blue, a striking colour for the 991, especially with the satin Silver finished 20-inch Carrera S III lightweight alloy wheels with colour Porsche Crests. The paintwork condition is excellent, with no blemishes on any panel. The 911 Carrera S has been waxed with Autoglym Ultra High Definition Wax by us, which will help protect the paintwork and repel surface contaminants. All the trim has a perfect finish, as do the front PDLS and rear LED lights, which are free from any damage or moisture buildup. The windows drop as they should when you open the door. The engine and boot struts also operate as they should.
The optional 4-way Sports Seats come with the optional 3-stage heating. Just like the rest of the Black extended leather interior, they are in excellent condition and provide a perfect contrast to the Sapphire Blue Metallic bodywork. The optional leather Multi-function Steering Wheel has audio and phone controls, as well as PDK gear shift paddles on both sides, allowing quick and effective manual gearshifts on demand. The Alcantara headlining is a luxury addition to the interior. There are no marks or signs of wear to any of the trim, panels or switchgear, with the leather retaining a wholly fresh appearance throughout.
Engine and Transmission
Our 911 Carrera S is equipped with the 3.8 litre flat six DFI engine, which addressed all previous weaknesses of the 996 and 997 first generation engines. The 911 Carrera S engine produces 400bhp and 325ft-lb of torque. The axle load distribution of approximately 40:60 ensures high directional stability and superb road behaviour. The engine starts cleanly when cold or hot, there is no smoke whatsoever either at startup or when driving. There are no unusual sounds or rattles when the engine is running. The optional 7-speed double-clutch PDK transmission system provides instant changes, unleashing the power of the engine with minimal fuss. In SPORT Mode, the gear changes are quicker, the gears are held for longer, downshifts are also more aggressive. The throttle is also more sensitive to your pedal inputs in SPORT mode.
The optional Power steering Plus is a great addition to this Porsche, at high speeds the steering is as firm as possible, ensuring maximum precision. At low speeds, the steering ratio of Power steering Plus adjusts for much easier manoeuvring and parking.
Our 911 Carrera S is equipped with the rare and desired 030 Sports Chassis and Sport PASM Suspension, which includes the dashboard switch that stiffens the suspension in an instant, increasing connection to the road. The ride height is 20mm lower than the standard 911 suspension, and 10mm lower than the normal PASM suspension. The springs are firmer and shorter, and the anti-roll bars on the front and rear axles are stiffer. The front spoiler lip has a more sporty geometry, the rear spoiler extends even further. These not only further reduce lift at the front axle, but also provide downforce at the rear axle for improved aerodynamics and even better performance. This was only available in conjunction with 20-inch alloy wheels and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus.
One other optional feature fitted to this 911 is Porsche Torque Vectoring PTV Plus, a system that actively enhances vehicle dynamics and stability. Operating in conjunction with the electronic rear locking differential, it works by braking the rear wheels as the situation demands, to improve steering response and steering precision by specific braking of the right or left rear wheel. To be more precise, this means that when the car is driven assertively into a corner, moderate brake pressure is applied to the inside rear wheel. Consequently, a greater amount of power is distributed to the outside rear wheel, inducing an additional rotational pulse (yaw movement) around the vehicle’s vertical axis. This results in a direct and sporty steering action as the car enters the corner. At high speeds and when accelerating out of corners, the rear differential lock ensures greater driving stability, outstanding traction, as well as greater agility, precise steering, and stable load transfer characteristics. In summary, the 991-series Carrera S offers unrivalled driving pleasure at every twist and turn.
Wheels, Tyres and Brakes
Our 911 Carrera S comes fitted with the Satin Silver 20-inch Carrera S III lightweight alloy wheels with optional silver tyre pressure monitoring valves and optional colour Porsche Crests. The wheels are as new, unmarked, free of damage and corrosion, having been professionally refurbished. The brake discs and pads are in good condition with minimal wear, the rear Brake Discs and Brake Pads were recently replaced. The tyres are Porsche N rated Pirelli P Zero high performance tyres, with lots of tread left all round.
