The eighth-generation Porsche 911 coming to India was internally code named 992 and retains the iconic silhouette that is distinctive to the Porsche 911 family. Furthermore, the car also comes with a heavily revised, more powerful range of six-cylinder turbo petrol engines. While the prices will be announced soon, we expect the new Porsche 911 to be priced in India, starting at Rs. 1.85 crore (ex-showroom).
According to the company’s India website, Porsche will be offering the new-gen 911 in four variants – 911 Carrera S, 911 Carrera S Cabriolet, 911 Carrera 4S, and 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet. The eighth-generation Porsche 911 gets an extensively re-engineered platform that uses generous amounts of aluminium in its construction in its rear section, for improved weight distribution.
