2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S Track Test Video
There will be no shortage of new Porsche 911 variants coming down the pipeline, but without question, one of the most popular is going to be the 911 Carrera S with the PDK transmission. To explore its handling and performance capabilities, we brought this new 911 to the Edmunds.com test track. Acceleration was tested with 0-60 and quarter-mile tests, while braking was calculated using 60-0. Handling tests included a timed slalom and two trips around a skid pad to generate a lateral acceleration calculation.
