Press release from: Porsche of Ocala

Ocala, FL –February 4, 2012–Porsche of Ocala today announced that the new Porsche 911 Carrera and Carrera S models have arrived in their Ocala showroom. The latest generation of the iconic Porsche 911 goes on sale Feb. 4.

Following its introduction last fall, automotive media world-wide have designated the latest 911 as the best iteration of Ferdinand Porsche’s sports car vision yet. It is destined to remain every bit the icon it has been since its 1964 debut.

“Whether this will be a customer’s first or just their latest Porsche 911, it’s going to be the most exhilarating driving and ownership experience yet,” said Nestor Mena, General Manager. “The 911 Carrera and Carrera S are the ultimate choices 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.”

For 2012, the 911 has been completely redesigned from the ground up. The new model applies 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 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 performance DNA.

In addition to aesthetic improvements, both new models offer significant performance enhancements. The 2012 911 Carrera is equipped with a new, 350-horsepower, 3.4-liter boxer engine, while the Carrera S features a 400-horsepower, 3.8-liter boxer engine—a 15hp improvement versus its predecessor. The 911 Carrera with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) accelerates from zero to 60 in 4.4 seconds, while the Carrera S 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. Top track speeds for the 911 Carrera and Carrera S are 179 and 188 mph, respectively.

As with every generation, the new 911 Carrera continues to raise the bar in both performance and efficiency. This is achieved through systems such as the Automatic Start/Stop function, engine and transmission thermal management, electrical system recuperation, the world’s first seven-speed manual transmission and—in conjunction with PDK—the ability to ‘sail’ or coast. The new electro-mechanical power steering offers the typical Porsche precision and helps to increase efficiency and reduce fuel consumption.

The new 911 Carrera Coupe will have a base MSRP of $82,100, and the 911 Carrera S Coupe will start at $96,400 (excluding destination fees).
