The 911 Carrera S with its 3.8-liter engine has been upgraded for 2009 with the addition of an extra 30 horsepower. With this extra power, the Carrera S now offers a top speed of 188 mph.

The new generation 911 is available for the first time with the new Porsche-Doppelkupplung (PDK), Porsche's double-clutch gearbox. The seven speed gearbox combines the driving comfort of an automatic transmission with the gearshift capacity of a sequential gearbox used in race cars. Since Porsche's double-clutch also boasts an automatic gearshift function, it replaces the former Porsche Tiptronic S automatic transmission on both the Carrera and Carrera S. PDK improves acceleration while reducing fuel consumption over the previous generation of Tiptronic S equipped 911s through optimized and adaptive gearshifts.

The Carrera S, equipped with the PDK transmission, can hit 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds which is 0.2 seconds faster than with a manual six-speed gearbox. The Carrera S equipped with the Sport Chrono Plus package and PDK accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds.

The latest Porsche Communication Management system, PCM 3.0, which includes a new touchscreen feature, is standard on all 2009 and onward 911s. Along with this upgraded system, options such as a hard disk drive navigation system, XM radio with XM NavTraffic capability, Bluetooth connectivity, iPODport, USB port, and aux jack will be available.
