Porsche had revealed the eighth-generation of the 911 at the L.A. Auto Show. The new 911 gets significantly wider wheel arches over the 20-inch front wheels and 21-inch rear wheels. The rear end has now the same width across all models, highlighting the slimline centre section. At the front, the body is 45 mm wider and it also gets electrical pop-out door handles. At the rear, all models feature a wider, variable-position rear spoiler and a light strip which runs the width of the car.

Under the hood is the 3.0-litre, twin-turbocharged, flat six-cylinder engine in the 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S which now produces 444 bhp which is an upgrade of 30 bhp. The rear-wheel-drive 911 Carrera S takes 3.7 seconds to clock triple digit speeds and the 911 Carrera 4S, with all-wheel drive, does it in 3.6 seconds. This makes both cars 0.4 seconds faster than their predecessors. Moreover, the optional Sport Chrono Package reduces the sprint by a further 0.2 seconds. The top speed of the 911 Carrera S is 308 kmph while the all-wheel-drive version can go up to 306 kmph. The engine is mated to a newly developed eight-speed Porsche dual-clutch transmission. Additional highlights include new assistance systems, such as the Porsche Wet mode for better traction on less frictional surfaces and to make driving even safer it gets Night Vision Assist with thermal imaging camera.
