New Porsche 911 revealed at LA Auto Show

The 2019 Honda Passport toughens up SUV portfolio at LA Auto Show

The beefier wheel arches housing 20-inch front and 21-inch rear alloys also contribute to the vehicle's meaner stance. With the new engine and transmission, the new 911s are about 0.4 seconds quicker than their predecessors in a 0-100kmph run.

Porsche has so far announced the specs of the Carrera S and Carrera 4S models only; these still use the turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six engine, which now makes 23hp more than the outgoing model, at 443hp (450PS).

While the 992 911 is larger in every vital dimension, Porsche has only confirmed that the front track is 45mm wider and that it has a slightly longer wheelbase for improved interior and drivetrain packaging.

Top speed for the Carrera S is 191mph, and it's 190mph for the 4S.

The 992 shows how it could be done: It has a new streamlined eight-speed PDK gearbox (up from seven speeds previously) built in such a way that would easily accommodate a hybrid motor. The nose now features LED headlights, while the rear has a new variable-position spoiler and a seamless light bar. At the front, the body is 45 mm wider than the current model. More noticeable are the new headlamps, with LEDs front and back. Improvements include larger turbos, a new intercooler and new injectors. The sport chrono package, now a $2,380 option, will shave an extra 0.2 seconds from the time. However, this week was the first official confirmation from Porsche of the 911's details, such as an outer skin entirely made from aluminum, as well as the first chance to see properly inside.

According to "Mr 911", the company only got its pre-production models early in 2018, which is "ideally when you would like to have everything basically sorted on the car". This corresponds to an increase of 23 horsepower compared with the previous model. The rear of the Carrera S is now as wide as the Carrera 4, 4S and GTS models. New assistance systems such as the standard Porsche Wet Mode for increased driver awareness on wet roads, and the optional Night Vision Assist with a thermal imaging camera, are part of the broadened array of available active driver assistance features. The PCM can be operated quickly and intuitively thanks to the new architecture. What you don't see in the photos is the significantly advanced connectivity of the new infotainment system - navigation, for example, will be based on "swarm data" in the future, in what is another step towards autonomous driving. The central screen now measures 10.9 inches and underneath it there are five buttons providing quick access to vital functions of the vehicle.

Ivanka Trump says 'Lock her up!' doesn't apply in her case
But the controversy has picked up in the interest of Outgoing House Oversight Committee chair Rep. Said Trump: "People who want to see it as the same see it as the same".

"For the upcoming years, our customers will not only race the GT2 RS Clubsport during open track days but also at global motor racing events", said in a statement Frank-Steffen Walliser, Porsche's president of Motorsport.

In a world first, Porsche has developed Wet mode, included as standard.

The Clubsport does retain traction control, stability management and anti-locking brakes, which can be adjusted separately by use of a dashboard-mounted switch. The Adaptive Cruise Control option includes automatic distance control, stop-and-go functionality, and an innovative Emergency Assist function.

The Carrera S and 4S will be powered by a 443 horsepower, turbocharged boxer six-cylinder engine.

Porsche is making its 911 faster and adding more technology to keep its most lucrative model relevant as the industry shifts toward full-electric sports cars.
