New Porsche 911 Carrera PDK video road test

Published: 26 June 2008 Updated: 26 January 2015

Porsche has just launched a ground-breaking 911, with the company’s first production double-clutch transmission and direct injection on the flat six. That makes for the greenest 911 Carrera in history, although it still packs 340bhp and powers from standstill to 62mph in 4.7sec. And here it is on video.

How does the new 911 stack up on the road? Chris Chilton puts the £70,360 Carrera S through its paces, and gives us his views on the quick-shifting seven-speed box.
