After 55 years since the introduction of the prototype of the Porsche 911, named 901, the eighth generation was unveiled in November 2018 at Los Angeles with the Carrera S and the Carrera 4S versions. Strangely though, the Carrera was introduced in 2019.

There was a long road between the first, naturally aspirated, Porsche 911, and the 2021 Carrera Coupe. While the first 911 was for pure sports driving experience, the eighth generation was a mix of performance, elegance, luxury, and exclusivity. It wasn't just a sports-car anymore. It gained a status symbol.

The front side of the car featured the same round headlights design but evolved. It featured the four-dots LED daytime running lights signature. The bigger apron in the front featured bigger air-intakes since the Carrera featured a twin-turbo engine and it wasn't naturally aspirated anymore. The flush to the bodywork pop-out door handles looked smooth. Interestingly, the car was fitted with 19” light-alloy wheels at the front and 20” for the rear axle. In the back, behind the windscreen, the third stop-light showed the 11 number when it was lit.

Inside, the Carrera was fitted with all the comfort and luxurious items required by an exclusive sports-car as the Porsche 911. The sport seats and the finishes had a premium look. The instrument cluster featured the classic five-dials, but only the tachometer was analog. The other four were TFT displays. A 10.9” screen for the PCM (Porsche Communication Management) was installed in the middle of the dashboard.

The flat-six under the engine lid was a 3.0-liter turbocharged engine that cranked up 385 hp. It was mated as standard with the new 8-speed automatic (PDK) transmission.
