With torque of 400 Newton meters, the S model surges from zero to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds. The Carrera does this in exactly five seconds. Top speeds for the Carrera and Carrera S are 285 km/h and 293 km/h respectively. The two 911 models from the 997 series will be launched across Europe on 17 July 2004.

Both 911 models have a newly developed six-speed gearbox and a reworked chassis, which includes active suspension as standard in the S model. For the 911 Carrera, this chassis, called 'Porsche Active Suspension Management', can be supplied on request. In the 'normal' position, PASM provides a sporty and comfortable balance to the suspension; pressing the 'sport' button, however, makes the suspension firmer which enables the car to be driven in a particularly agile and sporty way. In addition to PASM, a further option for both models is sports suspension, which is lower by 20 mm, with a mechanical rear inter-wheel differential lock.

The design of the Porsche 911 is a logical continuation of the 911 story, now over 40 years old. The result of the new exterior design - including a wider track and more emphasis on the waist - is a 911 which is even more dynamic, clear, powerful and, at the same time, elegant. Other striking features of the evolutionary design are the new circular headlamps with separate additional headlamps in the nose area, more prominent fenders, dual-arm exterior mirrors, altered seam characteristics and a more aerodynamic rear spoiler.
