The Porsche 911 992 – The only sports car you’ll ever need

From the Porsche Carrera Cabriolet to the GT3 RS there is something to please every car enthusiast in the Porsche 992 range, which is exactly why the 911 is one of the most iconic sports cars in the world. 

A thoroughbred German 2-door which effortlessly combines elegance and power, the Porsche 911 has one of the most storied lineages in the motoring world with every generation bringing its own unique style and character.  

Today, we are graced with the current 992 generation which carries on the superb Porsche quality which made its predecessors so great. So, here are five reasons you should look no further than the Porsche 911 992 when deciding on your next sports car in 2024.

All-rounded driving

Since its conception in 1963, the Porsche 911 has garnered a reputation as the ‘Ultimate Everyday Performance Car’, combining high-end driving mechanics with day-to-day practicality like no other.  

The 911 992 is no different. At a more comfortable pace, members of the 992 family offer a subtle, refined drive with high clarity handling which is suited to your everyday commute to work or trip to the shops. However, squeeze the throttle, switch the PDK to manual and hang on to the lower gears and you will be met with those all too familiar 911 sounds, as well as sharp, highly responsive feedback in both the steering and both sets of pedals.  

The Porsche 992 range also features a dedicated ‘Wet’ mode that had not been previously seen on the 911 to ensure the highest levels of control in all conditions.

Luxurious highly customisable interior

The Porsche 992’s interior builds on the design of the previous generation to achieve a classy and luxurious feel. There is a whole host of traditional Porsche details which have taken on a modern spin, such as the five ring instrument dials situated behind the steering wheel (4 of which are now digital) and the traditional analogue tachometer (which is now flanked by two touch screens). 

Of course, in typical Porsche fashion, what separates the 992’s interior from the rest of the pack is the endless list of customisable options. With a wide variety of materials, trims and finishes as well as unique Porsche accessories, the interior of the 992 can be tweaked to suit even the most individualistic of tastes.

The widest ever 911 model range

The world of sports cars is vastly different to what it was when the 911’s story began, and the 992’s model range is a perfect reflection of this. Never before have there been as many different variations of the 911 available as there are now. The 992 range has truly diversified Porsche’s offerings to guarantee that there is a 911 to suit everyone.  

The model range now includes the title models Carrera, Targa, Turbo and GT3 which all feature a variety of variants within their own individual. On top of this, for the true Porsche enthusiasts out there, the specialised Dakar and S/T models are also available. 

Overall, there are 26 different variants of the Porsche 911 992 model available, each offering different styles and driving experiences meaning that you can be sure to find your dream 2-door sports car within the 992 range.

Timeless design

It is one of the most recognisable sights in the world of car design, whether it be the iconic rounded headlight design or the sleek side profile, the Porsche 911 is one of the few cars that can be recognised anywhere in the world.  

So, in that respect, the design of the Porsche 911 992 has not seen a drastic change from its previous generation, because why play around with perfection? However, the 992 generation did introduce some subtle features to ensure the 911 design remains current, the full-width brake light bar gives the rear a smooth, modern look and flush door handles carry on this one-surface style.  

Overall, the design of the Porsche 911 992 speaks for itself, it is widely considered one of the best-looking sports cars in the world for a reason.

More power than ever before

Of course, the Porsche 911 992 carries on the tradition of making use of the iconic flat-six engines. Ranging from the 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged flat-six found in the Carrera models right up to the 4.0-litre naturally aspirated flat-six found in the GT3 models there is no shortage of performance.  

The standard Carrera model starts at 380bhp with a 0-62mph time of just 4.2 seconds, faster than any base 911 model before it. This elevated level of performance can be seen throughout the 992 range, right up to the Turbo S model which boasts an incredible 641bhp. This is a massive increase on the previous 991 range’s Turbo S model which topped out at 552 bhp.  

These high-performance figures can be seen in whichever 911 992 model you choose, meaning that the newest generation brings with it a level of Porsche performance that has never been seen before.
