Porsche is offering the Powerkit, a genuine factory-fitted tuning package offered only on the Carrera S that will lifts power from 350bhp to 376bhp.

The 911 Carrera S offers a total power output of 350 hp as standard. From the moment the key is turned, the flat-six engine will set your heartbeat racing. You can also raise the pulse-rate higher with this exclusive engine conversion. Offering a maximum output of 376 hp, the results are 0 to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds and 200 km/h (124 mph) in 14.9. Top speed is raised to 186 mph.

The key feature of the Powerkit Carrera S is the optimised gas-flow characteristics on inlet and exhaust. This is achieved by means of a modified cylinderhead geometry. Other features include an aluminium intake manifold and revised exhaust manifolds with larger bores. Controlling it all is a specially uprated engine management system. The performance is matched by the sight and sound of the carbon-fibre air-filter housing.

Also included in the package is a sports exhaust system with matching sports tailpipes. All are designed for optimum throughput and therefore optimum engine performance. The exhaust system has two sound modes – normal and sport – which can be selected using a button in the cockpit.

Benefits for the driver include increased power over the entire engine speed range. The car is more responsive with a more exhilarating sound. In short: even more 911.
