Porsche unveiled the eighth generation of its 911 sports car at the 2018 LA Auto Show on Tuesday. The new 911 is the first all-new version of the Porsche icon since 2011.The next generation Porsche 911 will launch with the mid-grade Carrera S and all-wheel-drive Carrera 4S models. According to Porsche, the base Carrera model will be unveiled early next year. And with all the spy shots of Porsche prototypes running coming out of Europe, expect the Turbo model to follow shortly after. Eventually, the 911 lineup will be filled out with as many as two dozen different variants.
The interior of the 992 draws heavily from the second generation Panamera sedan that was introduced back in 2016 and won Business Insider's 2017 Car of the Year award.Read more: 23 hot cars we can't wait to see at the 2018 LA Auto Show.The highlights of the interior include the 10.9-inch widescreen infotainment display and the use of touch panels on the center console instead of buttons.
However, the biggest shocker is the addition of a center console-mounted cup holder. Not that long ago, the Porsche didn't even bother to include cup holders at all on the 911. The current generation had collapsible units that fold away into the dash on the passenger side of the car. While ingenious in design, it always felt a bit too flimsy to handle a venti iced coffee. The new console-mounted unit takes the 911's cup holder game to new levels.
Power flows either to the rear wheels or all-four-wheels through a new eight-speed Porsche dual-clutch or PDK transmission. Fear-not traditionalists, a manual transmission will be available at a later time.
According to Porsche, the 911 Carrera S can do 0-60 mph in 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 191 mph when equipped with the PDK transmission and the Sport Chrono package. With the same options, the Carrera 4S can to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and reach 190 mph.
