Porsche announced the 911 Carrera S World Endurance Racing Edition only a month ago, but Germans aren’t known for wasting time. The first US-spec examples have arrived and they look just as stunning as the press release. The latest Carrera S is powered by a twin turbo 3.0L flat six making 420 hp and 368 lb-ft of torque. If you are curious about the hood graphics, they are a horizontal abbreviation of Porsche Intelligent Performance, the motto of their racing efforts. It can also be found embossed into the lid of the center console along with carbon fiber interior trim.
Embroidered headrests and the SportChrono package are standard, along with the PDK dual-clutch automatic. Even without the incredible hybrid system of the race car, the latest Carrera S offers 29 mpg highway and 20 mpg city. Only being produced in limited numbers, this edition is only available in white, blue & yellow. If you recorded any of the action from this year’s LeMans race, the only way to catch the blistering 919 is to play the footage frame by frame. The car is so fast, it outruns the refresh rate of HD racing cameras. Unrestricted by silly top end governors, you will be able to cruise at 191 mph with the latest in safety and connectivity included. Your opportunity to own this collector’s item is moving at the same speed, so catch it while you can.
