Luxury Car Hire Vehicle Guide : Porsche : Porsche 911


Porsche 911 / Porsche 997 / Porsche Carrera

Porsche 911

The Porsche Type 997, or simply 997 is the project code name for the current version of the sports car Porsche 911, built by the German manufacturer Porsche since 2004.

Production began in July 2004 and two variants, the Carrera and Carrera S coupés, were available immediately. The all-wheel drive Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S versions began shipping in November 2005, while the Turbo and GT3 derivatives went on sale in late 2006 and the 997 GT2 in 2007. The new 530 hp (395 kW) GT2 can accelerate 0-60 mph of 3.6 seconds and has a top speed of 204 mph (328 km/h), making it the first production, street-legal Porsche 911 with 200+ mph top speed. The Targa top models are also available, in Targa 4 and Targa 4S forms. The 997 is the most commercially successful 911 of all time.

The 997 Turbo debuted in February 2006 at the Geneva Motor Show. It uses a new front bumper with LED parking lights in a horizontal bar through the air intake. The fog lights are moved to the corners of the bumpers. Large air intakes in front of and behind the rear wheels are other obvious visual cues. The retractable rear wing is also one of the highlights, a feature which has been available on the 996 Turbo as well.
