The Porsche 991 debuted in 2011 at the Frankfurt Motor Show as the replacement for the 997 and the seventh generation of the iconic 911. A new chassis platform was engineered, the third since the neunelfer ‘nine eleven’ introduction in 1963, with the second being the revolutionary water-cooled 996 in 1997.
The new 911 bore the recognisable visual characteristics of the 911 and little similarity to the outgoing 997. The car featured various power advancements, with improvements across every performance metric, reducing noise vibration harshness. The first phase 991.1 was produced until 2016, when it was updated as the 991.2; the second phase 991 was only recently discontinued when the 992 was introduced in 2019.
The 991.1 Carrera S debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011, the range initially launched with the Carrera and Targa models, alongside more powerful S versions. The base Carrera and Targa had 345hp and a 3.4L engine. The Carrera S is more powerful, equipped with a 3.8L engine generating 50 extra horsepower and 325lb-ft torque. 7-speed manual was optional. The cabriolet was introduced later that same year at the LA Motor Show. The Carrera 4 and 4S were added in 2012, with GTS, GT3, Turbo, Targa 4, Targa 4S and various special editions including the 50th Anniversary and Club Coupe between 2014 and 2016.
Designed by Michael Mauer in 2008, the 991 explored new styling and larger dimensions. The car is marginally bigger, its wheelbase increased by 100mm and overall length by 70mm. As a result, the 991 incarnation looks more imposing, longer, and wider than its predecessor; the base Carrera was the only variant with a narrow body.
To improve weight distribution and cornering ability, a new transaxle was developed to move the rear wheels back in relation to the engine’s position. However, the base Carrera had a similar weight to the 997, due to the use of aluminium, high-strength steel, and several composites. Despite this, weight increased for the all-wheel drive Turbo when equipped with the impressive Porsche Doppelkupplung ‘PDK’ transmission. Porsche’s dual-clutch transmission was carried over from the 997 and was optional for all 911 Carreras and the 991.1 Turbo (Non-S). The 991 was a more refined, less raw 911 experience.
Our 2012 Porsche 911 (991.1) Carrera C2S Cabriolet features the coveted Sport Design Package, with a Grand Prix White Exterior and a high-tech interior combination of linen leather and carbon fibre. It includes the popular PDK system, Porsche Stability Management (PSM) to improve traction control, optional Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), Sports Exhaust and eyecatching red ceramic brake calipers. The roof stows remarkably well, creating a flush finish; as such, the convertible’s beautiful, streamlined silhouette mirrors a coupe. Designed for performance and comfort with heated seats, cruise control and climate control, the C2S PDK is an ideal everyday road car and modern classic.
