that pic is much better, though doesnt the front bumper assembly look a little 'Vetteish? i guess they should have just further eveolved the 911, i was really looking forward to seeing what the next generation of Porsches would look like, and was hoping to be surprised. but if you are going to make it look like the 993, ill look surprised if you want me to.

sorry should have checked before starting a new thread. will do it next time for sure. anyway here it is again.







For the first time since 1977, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, is launching two new 911 models at the same time: the 911 Carrera with a 239 KW (325 BHP), 3.6 litre boxer engine, and the 911 Carrera S, powered by a newly developed 3.8 litre engine, which delivers 261 KW (355 BHP). With torque of 400 Newton meters, the S model surges from zero to 100 kph in 4.8 seconds. The Carrera does this in exactly five seconds. Top speeds for the Carrera and Carrera S are 285 kph and 293 kph respectively. The two 911 models from the 997 series will be launched across Europe on 17 July 2004 (with the exception of the right-hand drive market in Great Britain).

Both 911 models have a newly developed six-speed gearbox and a reworked chassis, which includes active suspension as standard in the S model. For the 911 Carrera, this chassis, called "Porsche Active Suspension Management", can be supplied on request. In the "normal" position, PASM provides a sporty and comfortable balance to the suspension; pressing the "sport" button, however, makes the suspension firmer which enables the car to be driven in a particularly agile and sporty way. In addition to PASM, a further option for both models is sports suspension, which is lower by 20 mm, with a mechanical rear inter-wheel differential lock.

The format of the wheels and tyres has also evolved: the 911 Carrera now has, as standard, 18J x 18 size wheels with 235/40 ZR 18 tyres (front) and 10J x 18 with 265/40 ZR 18 tyres at the rear. The Carrera S is equipped with 19 inch rim/tyres, size 8J x 19, with 235/35 ZR 19 (front axle) and 11J x 19 with 295/30 ZR 19 (rear axle).

The design of the Porsche 911 is a logical continuation of the 911 story, now over 40 years old. The result of the new exterior design including a wider track and more emphasis on the waist is a 911 which is even more dynamic, clear, powerful and, at the same time, elegant. Other striking features of the evolutionary design are the new circular headlamps with separate additional headlamps in the nose area, more prominent fenders, dual-arm exterior mirrors, altered seam characteristics and a more aerodynamic rear spoiler.

The basis price for the 911 Carrera is EUR 64,700 and EUR 73,300 for the 911 Carrera S. In Germany, these prices (including VAT and country-requirements) are EUR 75,200 for the Carrera and EUR 85,176 for the Carrera S.

Pics and Info:

what really counts is the performance though,
7:56 min at the Nordschlife for the 997 Carrera S, almost similar to the MK1 GT3(360 HP), 7:57 min.

its going to be a great model range

Porsche
