Porsche launch 911 in India at 1.42 crore


Porsche has launched the new 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera, Cabriolet, Carrera S and Turbo S in India with prices starting at Rs. 1.42 crores. Because of stronger emission regulations that are being imposed across the globe, Porsche has had to put their naturally aspirated 911 to rest. Now it looks like the 911’s purists will have to settle for forced induction motors at the back of their heritage bred sports car. However, the new Porsche 911 promises to be a proper sports car and the new 911 Carrera, Cabriolet, Carrera S and Turbo S have been launched in India.01-porsche-911-frankfurt-2015-1

The Carrera, Cabriolet and Carrera S come with a rear mounted 3.0-litre, twin-turbo flat-six engine that produces 370bhp in the Carrera/Cabriolet, and 420bhp in the Carrera S. The engine in the Carrera/Cabriolet generates 450Nm of torque while the Carrera S peaks at 500Nm. The India spec cars will only be offered with the PDK automatic dual-clutch gearbox, which helps the Carrera sprint from 0-100kmph in just 4.4 seconds. The Turbo S , however, is powered by a 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat six developing 580bhp and 750Nm. It will do 0-100kmph sprint in a mere 2.9 seconds before topping out at 330kmph.
