Porsche 911 Carrera 4S (991-series) Launched in Malaysia

Without us aware on first day of March 2013 (technically “uninvited”), the official importer of Porsche vehicles in Malaysia – Sime Darby Auto Performance launched the new 911 Carrera 4S on March 1st, 2013 at Sepang International Circuit. As the latest variant of the 911, the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S features enhanced driving dynamics, agility and stability, making it an ideal sports car for maintaining control in severe terrain and weather conditions.

Arnt Bayer, Chief Executive Officer of SDAP said at the launch, “We are pleased to present the new 911 Carrera 4 models to you today. With its sleek contours, visual panache and modern silhouette that is unmistakeably Porsche, the new 911 Carrera 4S still continues to set new standards for handling performance and driving pleasure. In true Porsche style, it exudes confidence and a good measure of composed self-assurance, a calm but undeniable power and authority.”

The new 911 Carrera 4S which is offered in Malaysia market is available with the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) as standard. The 911 Carrera 4S has a 3.8-litre rear-mounted boxer engine that produces 400 hp (294 kW) that enables acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 299 km/h, with a suitable equipment configuration.

The wheel arches of the rear axle for the new Carrera 4/4S are more flared than Carrera 2/2S, each extending an additional 22 mm to the sides, while the rear wheels are each 10 millimetres wider. This increases the track width of the 911 Carrera 4S by 36 mm. The impressive view at the rear is underscored by the exclusive taillight panel with parking light and rear light functionality. The light panel runs directly beneath the spoiler edge, and it visually combines the two rear lights. For one, this emphasises the powerful termination of the vehicle, while also giving the all-wheel drive models a unique and clearly differentiated night design.

The new all-wheel drive 911 cars are equipped with the latest generation of Porsche Traction Management (PTM). It is based on the system of the 911 Turbo, Type 997 and was especially optimised in its control strategy with a special focus on improving efficiency and fuel economy. The system recognises a fuel-efficient style of driving based on the driving situation and reduces the transfer of drive torque to the front axle.

PTM combines typical Porsche driving fun of a rear engine and rear-wheel drive with even greater driving stability, traction and agile handling. In every driving situation, PTM accomplishes this by directing the optimal share of engine torque to the front wheels via a multiplate clutch. This distribution can be seen by the driver on the display instrument panel, only available in the 911 Carrera 4 models. With a maximum switching time of 100 milli-seconds, PTM is quicker than the engine’s reaction to load change and faster than the driver can perceive. In practical terms, this means a high level of agility on narrow country roads, excellent traction even on slippery surfaces and top-notch driving safety even during extreme driving manoeuvres in the high speed range. These properties make Porsche Traction Management one of the highest performance and yet lightest all-wheel drive systems on the market.

The base price of the new 911 Carrera 4S starts from RM 970,000 in Peninsular Malaysia, which includes 4-year factory warranty and a 4-year complimentary service maintenance package. The price stated includes all applicable duties and excludes registration fee, road tax and insurance.

The new Porsche 911 Carrera and Carrera S Cabriolet now available at all Porsche Centres in Malaysia by Sime Darby Auto Performance.

 

Both Cabriolets has the same engine as its Carrera Coupe equivalent. The rear of the 911 Carrera Cabrio houses a 3.4-litre flat engine generating 350hp (257kW) of power, whereas the open-top Carrera S comes with a 3.8-litre six-cylinder engine developing 400hp (294kW). That means that the open-top 911s as well are distancing themselves even further from the competition in terms of efficiency; The Cabriolets all has the Porsche PDK transmission featured as standard, delivering even lower fuel consumption and shorter acceleration times.

A New Porsche 911 Crash in the Netherlands

It is interesting yet sore to see such a beautiful new Porsche 911 involved in collision with airbags deployed. According to news in the Netherlands, the driver was heading down a narrow street when he was greeted with a Volvo V50. With no room to move, the two collided.

 

 

Getting the right insurance with the right price is very important. If you are in UK, try out http://www.carinsurance.org.uk to help you make the best decisions.

 

With any luck, this new Porsche 911 is likely to be repairable and back on the road. However, we wish that this car will not be exported to country like Malaysia as another reconditioned car that source from Europe by grey importer.

 

 

2012 Porsche 911 Unveiled in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The all-new 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera and 911 Carrera S unveiled in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia not long after Porsche introduced for the Europe market. Sime Darby Auto Performance launched the latest variant of the 911 on 17th February 2012 at the Sepang International Circuit. We were there to witness this special occasion for such a special iconic car that many people dreaming for it. It is now one of the most sophisticated and technologically-advanced sports car in Malaysia.

Although the new 911 maintain most of its shape and design, in fact 90% of the vehicle parts are completely new including the powerplant. The fuel consumption and emissions are now up to 16% lower compared to the 997-series. It is also faster than its predecessor by 14 seconds in Nurburgring.

The wheelbase of the new 911 (991-series) is now longer, and combined with wider track width at the front. This gives way to a more sure-footed tracking and roll stability at high longitudinal and cornering speeds. The innovative aluminium-steel lightweight body, combined with a raft of new components and functions, benefits efficiency and driving dynamics in equal measure. With an overall length of just 4.5 metres and an unchanged maximum width of approximately 1.8 metres, the new 911 remains as the most compact sports car in its class.

The design of the all-new 911 is distinct from all angles. It now come with new styling, larger alloy wheels and the more protuberant windscreen endows the 911 with an even jauntier, more coupe-like character.

Porsche designers inherit the interior architecture from the Porsche Carrera GT. The driver is integrated more closely with the cockpit, made possible by the centre console that rises up to the front with the high-mounted gear lever or gear selector located close to the steering wheel in typical motorsport fashion. The classic and established Porsche touches, such as the five round instruments with the centrally located rev counter and the ignition lock to the left of the steering wheel are also found in the new model.

The Carrera with the new 350hp, 3.4-litre boxer engine and optional Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) consume 8.2l/100km based on the NEDC – 1.6 l/100 km less than its predecessor. Also, at 194 g/km CO2, it is the first Porsche sports car to make it below the 200g/km mark.

With the Carrera S as well, with its 3.8-litre boxer engine and what is now 400hp, fuel consumption when paired with the optional PDK is reduced by 14% or 1.5 l/100 km to 8.7 l/100 km despite 15hp (11 kW) more power. That equates to CO2 emissions of 205 g/km.
