As we expected, Porsche has now revealed details on the next iteration of the “Type 991” 911. However it’s not the turbo, but the all-wheel-drive edition.
The 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S is a gutsy actor in the automotive realm, the 911 came into the world as an anti-establishment punk of a sports car whose torsion-bar suspension, six horizontally opposed cylinders, rear engine location and tapered tail were far from the mainstream paradigm of high performance. Yet since its debut in September of 1964, the 911 has steadily, defiantly gotten better through each iteration, just when you thought that all room for improvement had been exhausted.
