The revamped 2016 Porsche 911 may surprise us because the visual has been changed and it is expected to have much better quality than the past models. If we look at the design it seems bolder and more striking, especially with the grown large whale tail wings that is on the engine cover’s top. In its class, the car might be the quickest but the drivers can still ride the car easily and comfortably. If you want a sport car that has evolved well, this is the time to check out the newest Porsche 911’s specification details.
The New 2016 Porsche 911 Review
The lineup will be refreshed with the appearance of the new Porsche 911 having the exhaust set-up that is more unique and any recent iteration does not share this. The design is stunning enough even without much improvement and modification; we can even easily see that the new model is similar to the last year’s. Perhaps, one change that is speculated to be available is the head and back-lighting closed and Porsche seems planning to make it better. Although there is a fact that the alteration of the 911’s shape is not available over the last fifty years, it is still attractive when looking at the Targa 4 GTS of the new 911.
For the latter, this model is prepared with the alloys wheels coming in 20 inches of size in which the single center lock is featured along with the matte black color. The sportier design is also visible on the nose, while the black-finished logos around this vehicle can also clearly be seen; do not forget about the black-colored air intakes that will also grab our attention. There may be no much change, but the modification might be slight meaning that Porsche stays original.
The door mirrors have the graphics that will automatically remind you of the 356’s chrome body details’ shape. The point of the styling concept is that the redesigned headlight graphics, while the revised intakes are accommodated by the front apron. Even the rear wing is real fresh appearing with the body integration when it is not used so that the bonus of aerodynamic efficiency can be carried. The active shutter grilles are also included in the new design that will be great to anticipate.
The Powertrain and Performance of 2016 Porsche 911
For the 2016 Porsche 911 Turbo powertrain, it may come different from the current product in which Porsche choosing the flat-six powertrain with bi turbo 3.8 liters of gas and it is cool enough to make the torque of 550 pound-feet together with 553 horses while the acceleration is amazing because in just 3.1 seconds, the car can hit 60 MPH. For the newest 911, it is speculated that the Cayman or Boxter flat four may be the one used by Porsche to power the car and it means the horsepower that is estimated to produce is around 400 hp.
If that is the case, the 2016 Porsche 911 enthusiasts may be disappointed because the horsepower decreases. While for the base Carrera, it is reported that there will be a reduction into 2.9 liters in which the previous ones are 3.4 liters. For the Carrera S, the engine will still be the same and it remains 3.8 liters. The horsepower that can be produced by the base model seems to be 400 hp while 530 horses can be made by the S. It is much better to wait until the 911’s debut to know how great the powertrains are.
2016 Maserati Alfieri as the Rival
The car that will come in both convertibles and coupes with two platforms, the four-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive, may be one of the strongest rivals of the new 911. Maserati will do a great job for this product because they seem to limit the V6 power for the next new model. It is mentioned that the 410bhp V6 engine will be the one used to power the rear-drive type, while for the all-wheel drive version will be powered by the mid-level 450bhp, as well as a V6 engine 520bhp for the all-wheel drive version. Although the arrival is estimated to be in the end of 2016, many people expect much since it is the 911’s competitor.
2016 Porsche 911 Release Date and Price Estimation
The variable compression ratio solution has been patented by the automaker and it means that the MPG might magically be brought along with the output ratings that will be shown off when the new engines are introduced. The hybrid model will be available and this will also be released soon coming with the next production of rear engine that expected to be better. It seems we need to be more patient because the car’s release date might be in the beginning of 2016. After the release date, the next thing questioned a lot is the price range and the 2016 Porsche 911 will be sold with the cost starting around $131,000 and the most expensive one may be around $150,000.
