Porsche just announced a new power upgrade and a new series of personalisation products for the 911 Carrera S. To begin with, the power of the 3.8l boxer engine is increased to 430 hp (316 kW) from 400 hp (294 kW), which results in only 4 seconds for the zero to 100 km/h with PDK in Sport Plus mode. The top speed is also increased to 306 km/h with PDK and to 308 km/h with a seven-speed manual gearbox, yet the fuel consumption figures remain unchanged.
These enhancements of the Carrera S’es performance are a result of small changes to the electronic engine management system and special cylinder heads with different camshafts and an entirely new variable resonance intake system design with six air flaps and a resonance flap. An additional radiator is installed to prevent overheating and a new sport exhaust system that is equipped with two sets of twin tailpipes guarantees an amazing sound.
As far as the visual upgrades are concerned, the new front apron features the air intakes from the Sport Design package is combined with a fixed rear spoiler in legendary “ducktail” form. The Aerokit Cup offeres an additional fixed rear wing over the rear spoiler and a special front spoiler lip with additional air intakes. The titanium coloured engine cover with carbon inlays serves as a trademark of the Powerkit
