The Porsche 992 is the internal designation for the eighth generation of the rear engine sports car produced by the German automobile manufacturer Porsche. It was officially introduced at the Porsche Experience Center, Los Angeles on November 27, 2018. It will launch in European markets in early 2019.
The models initially unveiled in the 992 lineage include the Carrera, the Carrera S and the Carrera 4S.
The 992 uses rack-and-pinion steering and has a MacPherson strut front suspension and a multi-link rear suspension. The 992 has wide rear-wheel arches which will be a part of every model in the 992 lineage (a change only found on all-wheel-drive variants of the 911 previously) along with 19-inch wheels.
Compared to its predecessor, the 992 is 45 mm (1.8 in) wider and now uses aluminium body panels. The 992 also has a new rear bumper with larger exhaust tips than its predecessor. The front of the car is designed to mimic the appearance of an early 911 in a modern fashion. Models feature electrical pop-out door handles, a retractable rear spoiler, and LED headlights. All models also feature a full-length rear light bar. The interior also has received significant changes including a straighter dashboard which harks back to the shape of the dash board used on the classic 911. The instrument cluster consists of two 7-inch digital displays and an analogue tachometer.
The engines have piezo injection, a revised intake system, and—in some markets under Euro-6 regulations—receive engine particulate filters. The available transmissions are an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK), with a manual transmissionoption expected in the future.
Standard equipment includes a 10.9-inch display with Porsche Communication Management (PCM) and navigation system, and driver assistance systems including collision detection with braking intervention.
Optional equipment includes adaptive cruise control, night vision, automatic parking, and sports suspension which lowers the car by 10 mm (0.4 in). A Sport Chrono package is also available on all models and features an overboost function that provides increased performance for 20 seconds. 0–100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration times are decreased by 0.2 s.
Carrera S and Carrera 4S (2019-)
The first models to be announced in the 992 lineage are the Carrera S and Carrera 4S. Both of the models are powered by a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged Flat-6 engine.
