Porsche 911 On Sale At Napleton Westmont Porsche

The New Porsche 911 at Napleton Westmont Porsche is the latest descendant of the car that made us love Porsche in the first place. This model, a slope-tailed fastback coupe designated Type 992, has two doors and an engine in the back. It also has two front and two rear seats, but let's be serious here. Those rear seats are at their best accommodating a baby seat, a small dog, or the latest haul from a day of shopping along The Magnificent Mile.

Still, as the saying goes: Porsche. There is no substitute.

Let's take a closer look to see why.

What Is The Porsche 911?

The Porsche 911 Type 922 is the latest in a long line of sports cars from Porsche Cars AG that dates back to the original model, which debuted in 1964. Legendary in its history, it is amongst the most successful production cars ever to go racing. When introduced, its rear-engine (behind the rear axle) layout was innovative. It is even more so today. And a lot more powerful, too.

The 911 is powered by a choice of two engines, depending on the trim level. Order the 911 Carrera, Carrera Cabrio, Carrera 4, and Carrera 4 Cabrio to receive the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six cylinder engine producing 379 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque.

A more potent 3.0-liter flat twin-turbocharged engine powers the 911 Carrera S, Carrera S Cabrio, Carrera 4S and Carrera 4S Cabrio. It manages to make 443 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque for added emphasis when it really counts.

Power gets to the wheels by a standard 8-speed dual-clutch PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplung) automatic gearbox. If you are more of a traditionalist, check out the no-cost-option of the Porsche 7-speed manual transmission, which is offered with the Carrera S and Carrera 4S models.

Both Carrera and Carrera S variants are available in all-wheel-drive versions, designated by the number 4 in their respective names.

How Does It Look?

How does a classic look? That's a tough question, but it's clear that the Porsche 911 is one. Start with an anything-but-basic shape that is essentially the same profile as introduced at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show. Sure, through the years, the profile has evolved a bit, but overall it still consists of a short front, a sweptback roofline and if you could call it such, a short rear deck.

The fenders at both the front and rear have given way to wider tires resulting in a wide-body design that looks like racing Porsches of old. Staggered-sized front and rear tires lend an aggressive gait and give a high-performance appearance even while standing stationary. Few cars look better. 

And What About The Cockpit?

Familiar but constantly improving is the way we'd describe the interior of the Porsche 911. Start with the signature five-gauge array from left to right. It's still here but now includes two small digital display screens on the extreme outsides that relay important information to the driver. The speedometer is still analog and occupies the center pod. It's just as it should be.

The main multimedia interface now adds a 10.9-inch touch screen display to control audio, communications and vehicle settings. The center console features knurled buttons and levers that control suspension settings, roof controls (Cabrio), and adjust the climate control system. The two "occasional seats" can be folded forward to create a shelf for small suitcases or other small packages in the rear.

Since the 911's engine is mounted behind the rear axle, and there is no driveshaft tunnel to speak of, the interior turns out to be surprisingly roomy, at least in the front row of seats. Since the Porsche 911 is not a front-engine, rear-drive vehicle, there's a frunk. What's a frunk, you ask? Why simply it's a trunk in the front! It can swallow 4.6 cubic feet, which is good enough for a couple of large duffel bags.

Ala Carte

There really is no such thing as a base Porsche 911. Designed to be tailored to a buyer's desire and wallet, it offers standard safety items, including brake assist and wet-driving stability mode. Also standard are new LED matrix headlights.

Options include full leather seats ($700*) with a custom leather color option ($6,040*). There's a sport exhaust system with variable sound outputs ($2,950*), carbon-ceramic brakes ($8,970*) and the legendary sport chrono package for more aggressive driving modes with launch control ($2,720*).

Carrera S models can take advantage of other driver-assist options, including rear-axle steering ($2,090*) and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control ($3,170*).  Finally, a stellar Burmester premium audio sound system is on offer ($5,560*) that transforms your 911 into a concert hall on wheels.

Safety On Board

The Porsche 911 offers several innovative features that could help to keep the shiny side up on your vehicle. They include Wet Driving Mode, which is a first for the auto industry. The system detects rainfall inside the 911's wheelwells, which causes the vehicle's anti-lock brakes and stability control to adjust, so they continue to provide optimal grip regardless of the road conditions.

The 911 can be equipped with a LED Matrix headlights system that adjusts 84 LED lights in each housing, calibrating the range, path and intensity of the lights as they illuminate the road ahead of you. Finally, a Night Vision Assist system is available, which uses a thermal-imaging camera to alert the driver to the presence of humans or animals at up to 900 feet away.
