Reader spots four Porsche 911 Carrera S sports cars

Published: 09 September 2011

Porschephile reader Adam Hicks’s eyes nearly popped out of his head when he popped over to the Porsche musuem in Stuttgart this week – he spotted a quartet of new 991-generation Porshce 911 Carrera S models parked up outside.

The car hasn’t even been unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show – that’ll happen on 13 September – but there are numerous test, prototype and customer 911s knocking around in its hometown.

‘Visiting the Porsche Museum this week and spotted these cars parked across the road from the Porsche dealership,’ Adam tells us.

‘There were six cars in total: four new 911s, a GT3 RS 4.0 and a 911 Turbo with green brake calipers. In the metal the new 911 looks much wider that the current car.’

The four 911s are all Carrera S-spec (you can tell by their quad exhausts and red brake calipers – and the ‘Carrera S’ badging on some of them, obviously), with 3.8-litre engines delivering 395bhp. A 345bhp Carrera is also available, and both cars will be unveiled at next week’s Frankfurt motor show.

The Turbo is a Turbo S ‘918 Spyder Edition’, available to order for £125,865 if you place an order for the £645k 918 Spyder supercar.

Deliveries of these special edition Turbos started in June 2011, but the first 918s won’t be built until 18 September 2013.
