Porsche announce 30bhp ‘power kit’ upgrade for Carrera S

The 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera S will be offered with a new power kit option, featuring the same mechanical upgrades as seen on the GTS.

The pack delivers an extra 30bhp, thanks to upgraded turbos, increasing the total power output to a GTS-matching 443bhp.

Along with the mechanical enhancements, the kit also includes Porsche’s Sport Chrono pack (with dynamic engine mounts, lap timer and sports mode) and a centrally mounted Sports exhaust system.  The new kit is available now for Coupe and Cabriolet body styles (both two and four-wheel drive models), as well as the Targa 4S.

Costing in the region of €10,000 (UK pricing is yet to be confirmed), the power kit is available from the factory or as a retrofit upgrade for customers who already own a 991.2 Carrera S.

Further improvements include Porsche’s ‘Connect Plus’ infotainment system, which will be standard in the 911 and Panamera, and extra colour options, with a new four-layer Saffron Yellow paint finish, exclusive to the 911.
