The Porsche 911 Type 992 is expected to be introduced in Los Angeles.
The 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show will host the launch of the new generation Porsche 911, which we have been eagerly awaiting for a long time. The new generation, 992, will bring the bar to a much higher level in terms of performance.
The number of innovations that 911 will bring, for example hybrid support, is one of them. The hybrid Porsche 911, expected to arrive in 2020 or 2022, will be fed from the electric motor in addition to the internal combustion unit.
In this context, we have compiled 10 important changes that we will see in the new 911. Let’s put you on our list until the introduction comes…
Hybrid engine coming up
One of the most important innovations awaiting us in this generation of 911 will be the hybrid system that combines the electric motor and the internal combustion unit.
The 911, which is expected to arrive in the next 3-4 years, will not be completely electric due to insufficient battery technology.
Batteries need to be lighter and higher energy density to be adapted to 911.
Double turbo 3.0 boxer engine updating
Under the hood there will be a 3.0-liter Double-Turbo H6 engine as usual. However, the power value will be increased to 385 in Carrera and 450 hp in Carrera S.
Porsche engineers have achieved this success with the new intake manifold, the overhauled cooling system and the new exhaust system.
PDK transmission is a gear box that sets the bar in the industry, but engineers have designed this system to fit the hybrid system. PDK is now going to be 8 forward-rate without losing anything from its old speed.
7 forward option
The new Porsche 911 will be available in a new generation of manual transmissions.
One of the four versions of the prototypes had seven forward manuele.
All versions have the same rear track width
All 911s with 992 code will feature an extended rear fender. This was not the case in the 991 generation; the classic Carrera and Carrera 4S came with different track widths.
All models will come with 20 wheels at the front and 21 wheels at the rear.
GT3 and GT3 RS versions continue
A few months ago, it was not clear whether Porsche would have produced the GT3 and GT3 RS versions.
These machines, famous for their atmospheric engines, seemed to not continue due to the recent turbo and hybrid trend, but the brand did not come to refute, the message of this duo will continue.
Humidity detection system coming up
In the Porsche 911 Type 992, the front wheel seats detect the water on the road and accordingly the stability control system, transmission settings and the water sensor adjusts the position of the rear spoiler.
In this way, the driver can control the vehicle more easily on the wet floor. The system is automatically activated independent of wipers.
Plenty of Driving Assist system
The pressures of the modern automotive world are also on the Porsche 911. That’s why engineers have added a lot of driving assistance to the vehicle.
Lane tracking assistant, Lane Departure Warning, night vision system and Adaptive Speed stabilizer are just a few of them.
Digital display panel
The biggest flaw of the 991 generation was that the new Panamera and the digital display panel in new Cayenne were not in 911.
Digital 992, however, will continue to maintain the central speed of the sports car tradition.
Fewer physical buttons
Porsche’s philosophy of “a button, a function” seems to be over. Thanks to the new 911 digital display panel and the updated multimedia display, many functions will be presented with fewer buttons.
