Porsche 911 At Porsche Downtown Chicago

The Porsche 911 is now available at the new Chicago Porsche dealership. Porsche Downtown Chicago is centrally-located in Chicago's West Loop and is selling everything Porsche. The Porsche 911 is the company flagship and caused us to take notice of the brand in the first place. This model is a low-slung slope-tailed fastback with two doors and a rear-engine configuration. It's amazing, and it's available now.

And 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 newest in a line of legendary sports cars from Porsche Cars AG that dates back to 1964. With racing in its DNA, it turns out the 911 is one of the most successful production cars ever to hit the race- or rally course. It has never wavered and has kept its engine in the back from day one. When rolled out by Porsche engineers, it was innovative thanks to its rear-engine layout, which placed the engine behind the rear axle. Quite a bit has changed since that time, having gone from air- to water-cooled. In the process, it has become a bit more powerful, too.

A variety of engines power the Porsche 911, depending on the model. Order the 911 Carrera, Carrera Cabrio, Carrera 4, Carrera 4 Cabrio and the Targa 4 to receive a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six cylinder engine in three states of tune ranging from 379 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque. S models (Carrera S, Carrera 4S, Carrera GTS, Carrera GTS Cabriolet and so on) receive the same engine making 443 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque.

A 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-6 engine making 572 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque is found in the Turbo and Turbo Cabriolet. The Turbo S and Turbo S Cabriolet receive the more powerful version of that same engine making 640 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque.

Finally, the King of the hill Porsche 911 GT3 receives a non-turbo 4.0-liter flat-6 engine that delivers 502 hp and 346 lb-ft of torque in case you spend most of your workday at the race track.

Power gets to the wheels by a standard 8-speed dual-clutch PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplung) automatic gearbox. If you are more of a traditional driver who likes to row-it-yourself, check out the no-extra-cost Porsche 7-speed manual transmission, offered with the Carrera S, Carrera 4S, and GTS 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 The Porsche 911 Look?

How does a classic look? That's a difficult question to answer, but with a 911, you will know it instantly. The Porsche 911 992 features classic GT styling that emphasizes function over form while still looking beautiful. It features the same basic shape that it introduced to the world at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show. It has evolved through the years but still consists of a long front, a sweptback roofline, and a short rear deck.

The fenders at both ends of the 992 have given way to wider tires and 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. Now, all it needs is the famous whale-tail spoiler.

And What About In The Cockpit?

Constantly evolving also applies to the interior of the Porsche 911. Holding sway in the gauge binnacle is Porsche's signature five-gauge array from left to right. It includes a pair of digital display screens that relay important driver information. An analog tachometer occupies the center pod, just as in Porsche's factory racecars.

Multimedia now plays a large role in the new Porsche 911. As a result, there is now a 10.9-inch touch screen display to control audio, communications and vehicle settings. Knurled dials and levers offer the ability to control suspension settings, roof openings (Cabrio) and the climate control system. The rear "occasional seats" are quite honestly better suited to serve as a shelf for small packages or even suitcases.

Since the Porsche 911 is a true rear-engined vehicle, there is no driveshaft tunnel to speak of. As a result, the interior is surprisingly roomy, at least for the driver and passenger. Since the Porsche 911 is not a front-engine, rear-drive vehicle, there's a frunk. What's a frunk, you ask? That's easy! It's a trunk in the front! In this case, 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. Instead, it's designed to be configured according to a driver's taste and wallet. It offers standard safety items, including wet-driving stability mode and brake assist. Also standard are new LED matrix headlights.

Options include full leather seating with a custom color option for an added cost. A high-performance sport exhaust system with variable sound outputs is also available, along with carbon-ceramic brakes and Porsche's legendary sport chrono package for more aggressive driving modes and launch control.

Carrera S models can take advantage of other available features like rear-axle steering and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control. Finally, an other-worldly Burmester premium audio sound system is available to transform your 911 into a concert hall on wheels.

Porsche 911 Safety

There are plenty of safety innovations available for the 992 Porsche, including Wet Driving Mode, which is a first for the auto industry. This innovative system detects rainfall inside the wheel wells, causing the vehicle's anti-lock brakes and stability control to adapt for optimal grip, regardless of the road surface conditions.

An LED Matrix headlight system with 84 adjustable LED lamps in each housing can calibrate the lights' range, path, and intensity as they illuminate the road ahead of you. Finally, a Night Vision Assist is available, using thermal imaging to alert the driver to the presence of humans or animals up to 900 feet away.
