Preceded by seven historically celebrated models, the Porsche 911 is transcendently iconic. Evolving from one generation to the next, the Porsche 911 has undoubtedly earned its reputation as the ultimate luxury sports car due to decades of calculated improvements in design, performance and technology.
Highly anticipated, the extraordinary new 2020 Porsche 911 made a well-deserved grand entrance this past Thursday, September 12th at Porsche Centre Vancouver. Through dedicated fans and fog, the latest reigning Porsche 911 took center stage.
The 2020 Porsche 911 or ‘992’ debuted in it’s latest refined form to represent the eighth generation of the Porsche 911 in Cabriolet Carrera S and Coupe Carrera 4S versions. Both models surpassed the expectations of Porsche enthusiasts who took the rare opportunity to interact with each model from every generation.
In line with the gradual evolution of this iconic sports car, the new 992 is described by Porsche Centre Vancouver’s New Car Sales Manager, Louis McGonigal as “polishing a diamond to make it even shinier,” or simply perfecting an already perfect product. The new 2020 Porsche 911 boasts better performance, better handling, and better technology with a refined, modern cockpit.
On display were all eight generations of the Porsche dynasty, from the very first Porsche 911, or ‘901’ premiered on September 12th, 1963 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
Guests were encouraged to vote for their favourite 911 of all time, and the Porsche 991 was the easy winner, ranking in with the majority vote, doubling that of any other generation. A Porsche 991 owner and valued guest credited his vote to the 991’s smooth, rather than squared lines on the front bonnet and 18-way adjustable power seats. Lastly, superior everyday driving comfort when compared to the GT3 racing-inspired performance models.
Over 350 guests filled the space among the immense pillars of the pristine Porsche showroom. A delectable assortment of canapes, beverages and live entertainment were on offer for a night the Porsche Centre Vancouver team, and their loyal guests are not soon to forget.
