Product Overview

The 992 is the 8th generation Porsche 911. Like its predecessors, the 992 retains the MacPherson strut front suspension setup; unlike the 991, however, all variants share the same wide rear-wheel arches that used to be exclusive to AWD and high-performance models. All variants also come standard with staggered wheels (20" front & 21" rear).
Porsche 992 uses aluminium body panels. Inside and outside, more design clues pay homage to the classic 911. Still, the dashboard retains the classic analogue tachometer in the middle.
The 8-speed PDK comes standard on all models, though a 7-speed manual (all bundled with the Sport Chrono package) is available, too. The Sport Chrono package features an overboost function that increases engine performance for 20 seconds.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
Porsche has revised the steering action on the rear wheels, increasing the ratio by 6% for even sharper and more decisive turn-in traits than before. For the first time, Turbo S buyers can specify optional sports suspension with a 10mm-lower ride height and retuned active roll compensation system. The strength of the new Turbo S lies in the breadth of its repertoire: it eases and thrills in equal measure.

Porsche's top-end 911 is close to being ‘the quickest car in the world’ point to point. There’s no limit on the roof-up top speed, and the roof is quiet at speed. The cockpit isn’t as well protected from buffeting as the best two-seater would be, but it's pretty good.

The Porsche 911 Carrera has been in the press fleet for almost a year. It has racked up more than 6000 miles and been driven by many other motoring titles – and ourselves, for a brief first drive late last year. Steve Cropley actually drove this car to my house halfway through his test, and the 20 miles or so I managed in the pouring rain confirmed enough about its breadth of qualities.

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The latest 992 Carrera S 911 is available with a seven-speed manual. Porsche claims to have improved the action of the shift with shorter, lighter, more precise throws, with seventh still on a dog-leg to the top right hand side of the gate. Despite the differences in the claimed acceleration numbers, it doesn't feel like you are losing out on any pure performance versus the otherwise mechanically identical PDK model.

Pros
  • More agile than PDK Carrera S
  • Fantastic acceleration
Cons
  • No seventh gear
  • No third-gear option

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
Prices start from £82,793, which is over £10k cheaper than the racier Carrera S (£93,110) You get the same 3.0-litre turbocharged flat-six – albeit de-tuned from 444bhp to 380bhp – and the same PDK gearbox. The bigger point of differentiation will come next year, when Porsche adds a manual gearbox option to the more powerful car. For now, this basic Carrera is our pick of the 992-generation 911 range.

Pros
  • Stylish looks

  • No manual gearbox
  • Pricier than rivals

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
New'regular' 911 Turbo has a mere 573bhp and 750Nm of torque. Top speed of 199mph and a 0-60mph time of 2.7 seconds. Steering is direct and satisfyingly weighty, and at corner entry and exit there's generally more than enough traction for all but the most unhinged driving approach.

Pros

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
3.8-litre flat six in the new 911 Turbo S is the same size as the outgoing model's, but it's all new. The list of improvements is long, and starts with larger variable-geometry twin turbochargers. This Cabriolet version tips the scales at 1,710kg, so it loses out to rivals such as the McLaren 600 LT Spider. But on the road, the Porsche's power-to-weight ratio more than makes up for this.

Pros

Cons

autoexpress[8]

Sentiment Score 95%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The 911 Turbo – and more recently the Turbo S – is Porsche's halo car. It delivers the most of everything: power, torque, acceleration and top speed. The all-new, £155,970 Turbo S still fills that role, yet the jump in the numbers is huge. This 992 model features a new 3.7-litre twin-turbo flat-six engine that generates 641bhp and 800Nm of torque. With launch control, the car will romp from 0-62mph in 2.7 seconds.

Pros
  • Powerful engine
  • Impressive handling
  • Powerful rear-axle steering
Cons
  • Ride quality could be better

Sentiment Score 97%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
Because of the power top's added weight, the Cabriolet has a slight performance penalty compared to the 911 Carrera 4S Coupe. The 911 feels like a goddamn rocket when you mash the throttle. The steering is textbook Porsche perfect, and you'll run out of pavement before the Goodyear Eagle F1 tiresrun out of grip.

The EPA rates the 2020 Carrera 4S at 18 miles per gallon city and 23 mpg highway. Wind and road noise are on the higher side, the former likely due to the car's frameless windows. Like many other new Porsches, safety systems are available, but not standard.

Porsche hasn't officially confirmed it'll offer a stick-shift on the Carrera and Carrera 4. For now, 911 Carrera buyers are treated to Porsche's eight-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission. The Carrera doesn't have the Turbo S' aerodynamic tricks or its super-fat tires.

Even in lousy Los Angeles traffic, the 911's stick shift never feels like a chore. The manual transmission just means you get to take a bigger role in the action. The Carrera S Cabriolet weighs 85 pounds less than its PDK equivalent. The 911's interior is the same: handsomely styled, nicely appointed.

The 911 Carrera S starts at $114,650, including $1,350 for delivery. The manual transmission comes mated to a mechanical limited-slip differential with Porsche Torque Vectoring. Porsche's sport seats are somewhat visually understated but strike the perfect balance of comfort and support.

From behind the wheel, the flat-six has a much richer, more detailed note to it. Even at very modest speeds, the 992 has well-weighted and genuinely tactile steering. There are several driving modes: Wet, Normal, Sport and Sport Plus. The satisfaction comes from being able to make use of the car's power with conviction.

The 992 flavor of the Porsche 911 Turbo S has more power (640 horsepower vs. 612 in the McLaren GT) The all-wheel-drive Turbo S weighs 3,636 pounds, just shy of 350 more than the manual-equipped 911 Carrera S. In Sport mode the car is engaging and fun, but still calm and manageable.
