The Porsche 911 has Delighted Los Angeles Area Drivers for Generations

Considering how long the Porsche 911 has been around, and how popular it's become since its introduction in 1964, it might be surprising how much of a risk it was for the iconic German automaker. Replacing its lone offering, the 356, in September of that year, the '65 Porsche 911 quickly became one of the coolest offerings of the '60s, and it's continued its trend of being a cool, powerful and elegant sports car ever since. If you're a fan of modern day Porsche cars, you're probably interested in hearing more about the history of these models, and we're always happy to take a look back through history when it comes to a ride like the iconic 911.

It took quite some time for the 911 to find its way to its iconic '65 form, as the brand worked endlessly to perfect its replacement of the 356. But perfection is what Porsche is all about, and eventually the 911 became one of the more popular offerings from the brand. As the years went on, more 911 versions became available, such as the Targa convertible and the coupe. Nowadays, you can choose between the Carrera and Cabriolet, and looking to the past you can see where those trends came from. The '70s saw several changes to the Porsche 911, with improved performance and mechanics, as well as updated styling that reflected that time period.

By the time the fifth generation of the Porsche 911 came around in 1978, emissions regulations affected the design and engineering. This led to the Turbo editions offering larger engines and boasting superior engineering to offer up smooth power with delightful characteristics. As the sixth generation appeared in the mid '80s, the more familiar Carrera version was introduced, and performance outputs continued to trend upward. As Porsche refined the 911, it became less necessary to introduce complete redesigns, and as we see here in the ninth generation of this sports car, they've come a long way, all while sticking to the traditions of the brand.

Meet the Latest Porsche 911, Ready for Purchase or Lease

This is obviously a quick look back through the history of the 911, so if you want to get into the nitty gritty details, head on over to Rusnak / Westlake Porsche today to dive deeper into this iconic sports car's past.

The new Porsche 911 is the first series production 911 to receive twin-turbocharging. Categorized internally as a 991.2, the updated platform receives a host of standard and available technology and features making this the most advanced 911 ever to carve corners.

While the higher output, 420-horsepower 911 Carrera S uses larger 51mm compressor wheels in the turbos, drivers in Thousand Oaks will be ecstatic to find higher torque and horsepower figures with reduced consumption. The new 3.0L, twin-turbocharged flat-six engines in the 911 Carrera and 911 Carrera S models experience peak torque at 1,700rpm now, making these new performance figures all the more impressive.

With newly available features like rear-wheel steering, updates to the steering system itself and standard Porsche Active Suspension Management, the new 911 is more capable, more comfortable, and ultimately designed to be a more engaging tool for carving up Kanan Dume Rd or any of the other canyons in Malibu. 
The 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera cleverly uses its turbochargers to add 20 horsepower, and 55 lb-ft of torque, bringing output to 370 horsepower and 332 lb-ft. Not only is the new car measurably faster in all scenarios, it's more efficient and easier to drive on the highway, requiring fewer gear changes. Updates to the PDK, dual-clutch transmission reduce emissions, fuel consumption and increase smoothness of operation at low-speed. All told, every update to the car has been made to sharpen reflexes while making it more luxurious. Where Porsche, and the 911 are concerned, there really is no substitute. 

The 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera S achieves 420 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, improvements of 20 and 44 respectively. The higher output model is equipped with a larger turbocharger, a different exhaust application as well as other changes. The new 911 Carrera S is as home on Latigo Canyon as it is on the 101 coming home to Ventura or Los Angeles County.
