The new generation of the 911 stands out clearly at first sight through innovations in design both front and rear as well as new lights with LED technology. LED daytime driving lights and bi-xenon headlights now standard on all new models in the Carrera range give the silhouette of the 911 even more distinctive style and a truly unique look, interacting with new LED rear lights to ensure an unmistakable and striking appearance also at the rear. And as a further safety option, Porsche now also offers Dynamic Bending Lights on all models.

Porsche revealed today two new models in its new 911 line-up: the Carerra 4 and Carrera 4S. The new models will go on sale starting 25 October 2008.

Porsche Carrera 4 and 4S

The new all-wheel-drive sports cars come with sporting manual transmission featuring six gears. As an alternative the new models are available with Porsche’s new Doppelkupplungsgetriebe replacing the former Tiptronic S automatic converter transmission and offering an even faster gearshift on less fuel. The Doppelkupplungsgetriebe or double-clutch gearbox comes with seven gears shifting electrohydraulically without the slightest interruption of traction and pulling force.

To get the most out of a Porsche exhaust system, it has to be tuned to a tone that would likely get its owners in trouble with noise ordinances in their well-heeled neighborhoods. But Porsche doesn’t want its enthusiasts to drive tames cars, and it developed a new adjustable sports exhaust system for the Carrera and Targa 4 .

The heart of the system is the exhaust flap on each main silencer activated by the engine’s electronic control system and switching over to a more sporting sound as soon as the driver activates the sound mode. The system itself is activated by a separate button in the center console varying the sound of the exhaust as a function of engine load, road speed and engine speed.

So the price to have all this control at your fingertips, a paltry $2500.

Remember last year in October David Beckham bought a Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet? Now is Victoria’s turn: she paid £100,000 for a custom-made Porsche Carerra just like hubby David’s - but with her initials on the hubcaps and headrests.

She was seen two days ago while she was leaving a gymnastics class with sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz in LA.

But even she had a great time in LA, London is where she wants to be: "They are coming back and London will be home. They already have Beckingham Palace in Hertfordshire but (Victoria) wants to be closer to the hub of London. Victoria loves America. She enjoys the company of Tom and Katie Cruise and other A-list pals. But she is excited about the long-term future and London will play a huge part in that."
