It seems like only yesterday the first images and details were released of the 2009 Porsche 911 Carrera, but in actual fact it has been almost two months now. We have so far been limited to a small selection of press images of the model, but now we can present to you the first video of the 911 Carrera and Carrera 4S complete with commentary reminding us of all the nifty details that the engineers have fine tuned.
The updates for the 2009 model year revolve around the powertrain, the regular 3.6-liter unit hiding in the engine bay of the Carerra 4 is treated to a power boost of 20bhp bringing total output to 345bhp. The Carrera 4S is powered by a 3.8-liter power unit which has seen output boosted to 385bhp - an additional 30bhp. The Toptronic S automatic transmission system has been removed in favour of Porsche's brand new optional seven-speed automatic double-clutch gearbox dubbed Porsche-Doppelkupplung (PDK).
Exterior modifications are kept to a minimum with the incorporation of front and rear LED lights along with slightly redesigned bumpers.
