For those who were unaware, Porsche have already updated their website to allow potential customers to start configuring the new 992 model 911 Carrera S and Carrera 4S (via their website here). Naturally, we armed ourselves with an imaginary e-wallet and gave it a go.
The 992 model 911 now features several new colours; we noticed ‘Lizard Green‘, which first caught our attention on the current 911 GT3 RS, is now offered as a special colour option for the standard Carrera. If that shade is a bit too loud for you, we’ve also noticed ‘Aventurine Green Metallic‘ under the metallic colour option – a shade that’s more subtle, like a darker army green.
In the wheels department, you get the standard 20/21-inch across the board and offered in two standard designs: Carrera S and Carrera Exclusive Design. Optional are the RS Spyder and Carrera Classic wheels and since we like spokes, we went with the RS Spyder design. For the interior, there seems to be several new options including Slate Grey and Graphite Blue, but the new Agave Green is also very nice indeed. In fact, you can even pick your seatbelts in Lizard Green.
Now comes the exciting part – Individual Options. We went with deletion of model designation, ‘PORSCHE’ logo painted in high-gloss black and electric folding side mirrors (this should come as standard for the Malaysian market). There are other fancy boxes to tick; SportDesign side skirts, sunroof, carbon roof just to name a few, but we thought it best to be practical. Ahem.
For now, there is only the choice of an eight-speed PDK transmission (although we hear that a manual will eventually be available as an option) so we had to go with that. But also added on are Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), rear axle steering including power steering plus, sports exhaust in brushed stainless steel (you can also go with black), Sport Chrono Package, front axle lifter, PASM (which lowers the car by a further 10 mm), and PCCB (ceramics – typically in yellow, standard brakes in red, but you can now choose PCCB in high-gloss black – why anyone would want to, we are not sure).
