The new 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera also made its appearance at the tennis tournament this weekend. The 911 Carrera offers an uncompromised timeless design and breathtaking performance. The completely new engine generation featuring twin-turbo technology enhances the driving pleasure of the 911 and provides a 20 hp increase compared to the previous models. The 3.0 liter engine in the standard Carrera now develops 370 hp. Using turbochargers with modified compressor wheels, a model-specific exhaust system, and a different tune for the engine management system, the 911 Carrera S delivers 420 hp from the same displacement.
