Porsche 911 Carrera S Powerkit offers 424 bhp

Thu, 21 Jun 2012

Porsche is offering a Powerkit for the Carrera S with 424bhp and an Aerokit Cup bodykit for the faux GT3 look.

The 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera has only been with us for five minutes but already Porsche are offering more power and some add-on aero bits for a bit of a faux GT3 experience for new 911 owners.

On the power front, Porsche Exclusive is offering a Powerkit for the 911 Carrera S which ups its power to 430hp (424bhp) from the regular 400hp.

That extra power is granted to the Carrera S not just by tweaking its brain but also by using special cylinder heads with different camshafts and a new variable resonance intake system with six air flaps and a resonance flap.

There’s also an extra centre radiator to keep the extra power from overloading the thermal management system and a sports exhaust system with two sets of twin tailpipes.

Also on the list of extra goodies in the Powerkit is the Sport Chrono Package with dynamic engine mounts and the engine compartment gets titanium coloured engine cover and carbon inlays.

The Powerkit for the Carrera S manages to trim 0.3 seconds off the 0-62mph time at 4.0 seconds and the top speed nudges up to 191mph, all without any change to official economy figures (and, therefore, emissions).

Also on offer from Porsche Exclusive is a new Aero Kit, with the basic version offering a front apron that extends low with air intakes from the Sport Design Package and a fixed rear spoiler in ducktail form

Push the boat out for the Aerokit Cup look and you get the full GT3 look-alike package with an extra fixed wing over the back spoiler and a special front lip with extra air intakes.

Also on offer for the 911 Carrera from Porsche Exclusive are privacy glass, an Exterior Package with lots of bits in body colour and interior packs with a range of trim finishes.

All designed to to make the margins on the Porsche 911 even more appealing for Porsche.
