Porsche 992 Model Guides
The first models to debut were the Carrera S and Carrera 4S. Both models are powered by a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged flat-6 engine. The Carrera S and Carrera 4S Cabriolet followed a few months later, while the base Carrera and Carrera 4 was introduced in mid-2019. Porsche announced the Targa cars a year later, in May 2020. As expected the Targa models are powered by the 3.0 liter as the Carrera 4 and 4S. All models now have the widebody design so telling them apart is harder than ever. In mid-2021 we saw the full range of the five GTS models announced and as expected they were all well-specced, almost perfect out of the box. The top of the regular model lineup is still the 911 Turbo and Turbo Cabriolet, both with 572 hp and all-wheel drive sure-footedness.
Porsche 992 Special Models
Introduced in March 2020, the 992 Turbo S and Turbo S Cabriolet were the first special edition 992 generation cars. The Turbo S has a twin-turbocharged 3.7-litre flat-6 engine rated with 640 hp and 590 ft lbs of torque. The engine is based on the 3.0 litre unit found in the Carrera models and has a slightly shorter stroke than that of the outgoing Turbo S engine. Acceleration is insane, with 0-60 mph in 2.6 seconds (2.7 seconds for the convertible) and top speed is 205 mph. Both the turbochargers and the air intake system are larger, with the latter now being located directly behind the engine instead of in the rear fenders as on previous 911 Turbo models. As always, the Turbo S gets lots of added extras included standard versus the "base" Turbo models, including Porsche dynamic chassis control (PDCC), rear-axle steering and ceramic composite brakes. In February 2021, Porsche introduced the 992's GT3 version. It uses the same 4.0 litre naturally aspirated flat-6 as the 991.2 generation, now producing and producing 500 bhp and 338 ft lbs of torque. Porsche spent a lot of time optimizing aero and managing weight. the GT3 features a large rear spoiler with larger air vents, a bigger diffuser, two large exhaust connections, bucket seats in its interior, and an optional roll cage. Porsche also introduced double-wishbone suspension, making the car stiffer and more stable with less body movements under braking. In short, the 992-gen GT3 has stiffer, faster-reacting damping, but with more comfort than before. The 992 GT3 recently set a lap time at Nürburgring Nordschleife with a time of 6:55.34 minutes. The GT3 uses a 7-speed PDK or a 6-speed manual instead of the 7-speed manual or 8-speed PDK used in other models. There is also a dedicated GT3 Touring model this time around.
Porsche 992 Motorsport Racing Models
The GT3 Cup gets bigger and bigger every year and with each generation, the cars get faster, more advanced and overall more impressive. The 992-generation GT3 Cup car is no different. The new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is the first race car based on the current 911 model series 992, but we expect more motorsport models in coming months.
