2012 porsche 911 Reviews and News

2012 Porsche 911
2012 Porsche 911
As this magazine went to press, we had not yet driven the redesigned 911, but based on early reports and nearly half a century of history, we're willing to go on record predicting it will be very good. The new 911 promises its biggest gains yet in refinement and efficiency. The longer wheelbase all but irons out the rear-engined snappiness found in earlier 911s, and the already-posh interior gains a high-tech center console and optional eighteen-way power seats. A smaller-displacement base engine, a lighter body, automatic stop-start and freewheeling technologies, electric power steering, and a seven-speed manual transmission collectively improve efficiency by up to sixteen percent. Power improves by 5 hp on the Carrera model and 15 hp on the Carrera S. That added horsepower, combined with a weight reduction of between 65 and 100 pounds (depending on trim), yields minor improvements in acceleration to 60 mph, to 4.5 and 4.3 seconds, respectively. Based on Porsche's past model rollouts, we expect to see new base and S convertibles join the coupe this year. Those in search of a spicier 911 will still have some choices--sixteen of them actually--as the last-generation's Carrera 4 and 4S, Turbos, Targas, Black Editions, and GTS models all carry over to 2012, albeit in limited quantities. The GT3, GT2, and all their spin-offs are gone for now, unless you manage to snag a leftover 2011.

Purists often argue that they don't see the point in the convertible version of a performance car, because cutting off the roof reduced structural rigidity, and the power-folding top usually adds weight. To which the proper response is, "So what?"

Feature Flick: Nissan GT-R and Porsche 911 Carrera S Go Head-to-Head
Yes, we know: on paper, the Porsche 911 Carrera S and Nissan GT-R should not be competitive vehicles, considering that the GT-R makes 545 horsepower and the Carrera S makes a round 400. Still, the cars' sporting character and status as two of the hottest super coupes on the market made them prime candidates to go in front of Motor Trend's Head 2 Head lens.

Feature Flicks: Porsche 911 Carrera S Laps ‘Ring in 7:37, 918 Spyder Does a Test Run
Porsche has taken a few visits to the Nürburgring recently – once with the new 2012 911 Carrera S and once with a prototype for the upcoming 918 Spyder hybrid supercar. And what do you know? Both cars put down pretty impressive lap times around the Green Hell.

All in Moderation: Gemballa Turns 911 Carrera Cabriolet into GT Cabrio
German tuning house Gemballa has been in the business for some 30 years, and few of its creations inspire the word "restrained." But it looks like the engineers at Gemballa have exercised some restraint and tarted up the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet with just a few simple touches.

2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S
Like seemingly everyone else in America, I went to see "The Avengers" on its opening weekend. Unlike most everyone else, I drove to the theater in a new Porsche 911 Carrera S. I don't think I could have gotten more attention had I walked into this Ypsilanti, Michigan, theater with the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) on my arm. "Hey man, just so you know, I could totally beat you in my 2006 BMW M3," called a young man who had apparently elected to leave the Bimmer at home in favor of his mid-90s Chevrolet Lumina. Another gentleman jogged into the theater after me to ask if the red Porsche was, in fact, my car. This is all a bit unusual for a 911, which has always been something of a superhero in disguise. I've driven several last-generation 911s, including a pricey GTS model, and received not a lick of attention. This new model has a certain magnetism that I think goes beyond a few new details. It doesn't show in pictures, but the new car has dramatically modified, more muscular proportions. This comes at something of a cost in terms of authenticity. Whereas the previous car felt like an old car that's been modernized -- much like a Jeep Wrangler -- this car feels like a modern design that's been given lots of retro cues -- think the Chevrolet Camaro or Dodge Challenger.
