Baker Motor Company to Unveil the New, Seventh-Generation Porsche 911 S on Feb. 4, 2012

January 26th, 2012 by

We are excited to share that the new Porsche 911 Carrera S has finally arrived at the Baker Motor Company Porsche showroom!  The latest generation of the iconic Porsche 911 goes on sale Saturday, February 4, 2012.

For 2012, the 911 Carrera and Carrera S have been completely redesigned from the ground up (the Carrera and Carrera S Cabriolet will arrive at Baker later this spring). The new models apply singular balance to the priorities of a new era, preserving the classic 911 lines, yet revisiting every inch for advances in power and fuel economy. While enthusiasts will recognize the 2012 911 Carrera S at a glance, 90 percent of its components are either new or fundamentally revised. Its sleek and stretched silhouette, pulse-pounding contours and precisely designed features signal its rich heritage from every viewing angle. Longer, lower, wider, 100 lbs. lighter, faster and more efficient than previous models, the 911 is the perfect blend of modern design, intelligent engineering and high performance DNA.

In addition to aesthetic improvements, the 2012 911 Carrera S offers significant performance enhancements that features a 400-horsepower, 3.8-liter boxer engine—a 15hp improvement versus its predecessor. Top track speeds for the 911 Carrera S is 188 mph while it sprints from zero to 60 in a mere 4.1 seconds.  That time is reduced even further to 3.9 seconds when equipped with the Sports Chrono Package Plus. As with every generation, the new 911 Carrera S continues to raise the bar in both performance and efficiency completed with engine and transmission thermal management, electrical system recuperation and the world’s first seven-speed manual transmission. The new electro-mechanical power steering offers the typical Porsche precision and helps to increase efficiency and reduce fuel consumption.

Whether this will be a customer’s first or their latest Porsche 911, it’s going to be the most exhilarating driving and ownership experience yet. The 911 Carrera S is the ultimate choice for drivers who want a true benchmark-setting sports car that they can put through its paces and enjoy all week long, not just for show or on weekends.
