Evolutionary. It’s the best word to describe not just this latest generation of the Porsche 911 but all six inceptions that came before it since the 1963 original.
The evergreen silhouette; a flat six engine; the motor straddled by the two rear wheels: you’d be forgiven for asking if there’s anything new about this iteration – the 992 – at all.
But don’t let the oh-so-familiar formula deceive you.
Under that instantly-recognisable bodywork is a tour-de-force of new tech that, on paper – especially according to the marketing fluff – should make this the best 911 to drive yet.
We headed to Valencia, in Spain, to take the new 992 – available in the UK from March – for a spin to see if it lives up to that marketing spiel.
Rob Hull said it’s hard to believe that Porsche will make the 911 even better when models like the GTS and GT3 arrive. Don’t forget there’s a Cabriolet and Targa on the cards, too
