The gutsiest Porsche is better than ever this year. The all-new 2017 Porsche 911 is ready to take on the open road with you behind the wheel. Check out some of the best parts of the Porsche 911.
With the 911, you’ll start with stellar performance. A max horsepower of 370 will get you going from the start, zipping from zero to sixty in just 4.4 seconds. With a top track speed of 183, the Porsche 911 will leave everything in the dust.
Don’t think that stellar performance means you won’t get stellar technology, too. On the inside, you’ll find an incredibly innovative infotainment system that gives you your favorite driving music and online navigation to get you where you need to go.
The Porsche 911 is sharper than ever thanks to bold three-dimensional taillights and new front and rear design that’ll turn heads as you rip up the pavement.
With the new optional sport exhaust system, the 911 gets central tailpipes that make its arrival heard.
Porsches are for racing–but they’re for the road, too! The all-new 2016 Porsche 911 R reflects exactly that. After its premiere at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show, it was clear that Porsche was tipping its hat to its past.
The first road-homologated race car bore the “911 R” name in 1967 (The “R” stands for “Racing”). The original was entered in rallies, in world record runs, and in the Targa Florio. Porsche hopes to continue that tradition with the 2016 911 R.
This car is more lightweight than ever, and is actually the lightest version of the 911 R available, weighing in at only 3,021 pounds. This car is truly “unfiltered” and you wouldn’t believe how streamlined it is.
This light, simplified 911 R comes without the “luxuries,” so there is neither air conditioning nor radio! But don’t worry, those can be added right back in, for free, at the customer’s request. Even the inside door handles are gone! Technically, they’re not gone, but there are door-opening loops instead.
This lightness means it can go up to 200 mph. So, if you want a lightweight race car, the new Porsche 911 R is the one for you.
The event featured a two-day tournament between the players and included Andy Roddick and Michael Chang, both of whom came out of retirement briefly to participate. Sharapova wanted to get players ready for the Australian Open in a more serious exhibition match than usual.
Porsche officials expressed excitement at the partnership with Sharapova for the event, saying the “power and elegance” of the sport and of Sharapova herself are “the exact characteristics that are conveyed in our sports cars.”
The 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera was present at the tournament, highlighting the connection to sportiness and athleticism the brand aims for. The 2017 Carrera is more powerful than ever, with an even higher horsepower than previous models, bringing it up to 370 hp.
For the third consecutive year, Porsche topped the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study after receiving rave reviews from consumers within the first 90 days of owning their Porsche. In total, six Porsche models received honors, placing within the top three of their respective segments.
The Porsche 911 ranked highest in the Midsize Sporty Car segment for the fourth year in a row, proving its dominance and superior quality. In addition, the brand new Porsche Macan took first in the Compact Premium SUV segment while the Boxter and Cayman took the first two spots in the Compact Premium Sport Car segment. Rounding out the Porsche awards were the Cayenne and Panamera, which both received third place in the Midsize Premium SUV and Large Premium Car segments.
Matthias Muller, Chairman and Executive Board of Dr. Ing. h.c. Porsche AG, said, “We see these awards as confirmation of our strategy for high quality standards in design, development and production and in continuously offering Porsche customers a unique purchase and ownership experience.”
