The 2020 992-generation Porsche 911 is finally here. It’s longer and heavier than the outgoing generation, because that’s apparently what 911s do now as the new generations roll in: They get bigger. I’m off to Spain now to drive it. What do you want to know about it?
And in true 911 fashion, it’s visually very similar to the outgoing model. Same rounded headlights. Same fastback design. Only true nerds will be able to immediately pick out aesthetic differences.
The Carrera S and 4S are available on the media launch that I’m currently attending, both good for 443 horsepower. They come with an eight-speed PDK transmission, which ought to be very good. And turbocharged flat-six engines, with newly optimized turbos and and intercoolers.
Look, I won’t bullshit you: I’m going into this drive expecting the cars to perform and handle brilliantly. How could they not? There hasn’t been a bad modern 911. They are all pretty damn good. Regardless, I still want to hear your thoughts.
Ask me what you’re curious about!
