The new Porsche 911 to make first debut in Asia at Bangkok International Motor Show 2019

AAS Auto Service (AAS), the sole authorised importer and distributor of Porsche cars in Thailand, will be setting a milestone by unveiling the new Porsche 911 for the first time in Asia at the 40th Bangkok International Motor Show. It is the very first time ever that a new Porsche model is debuting in Thailand.

In addition, AAS will proudly present a multitude of Porsche cars, led by 911 GT3 RS, Cayenne E-Hybrid, Macan, 718 Cayman and Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive from Wednesday 27th March to Sunday 7th April 2019.

Together with the unveiling of the new 911, Porsche Thailand welcomes Nine-Naphat Siangsomboon, Thai well known celebrity and Porsche enthusiast to attend the press conference.

The new 911 continues to set the standard when it comes to exclusive sportiness. Unmistakably committed to the Porsche design DNA, a much more muscular look, and an interior featuring a 10.9-inch touchscreen monitor, it is timeless – and modern. Coming as standard for Thailand with Power Steering Plus, 14-way Memory Power Seats and a BOSE Sound System.

Peter Rohwer, Managing Director of Porsche Thailand, said: “Coming swiftly after the successful grand opening of Porsche Studio Bangkok comes the debut of the new 911, seen for the first time not just in Thailand but in the whole of Asia. I am very honoured to be able to unveil this car to the visitors of the motor show, who will be the first in the region to see the iconic sports car in person.”

Together with the unveiling of the new 911, Porsche Thailand will have Nine-Naphat Siangsomboon, Thai heartthrob and Porsche enthusiast to attend the press conference with an exclusive showcase. In addition, AAS will proudly present a multitude of Porsche cars, led by 911 GT3 RS, Cayenne E-Hybrid, Macan, 718 Cayman and Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive from Wednesday 27th March to Sunday 7th April 2019.


Carrera S models start from 450 PS

The eighth generation of the 911 debuts in Thailand with the 911 Carrera S derivative with 450 PS (331 kW) – an increase of 30 PS (22 kW) from its predecessor – and is now even more emotional and yet more efficient.

The new Porsche 911 models beat the four-second mark for acceleration from zero to 100 km/h: the rear-wheel-drive Coupé only needs 3.7 seconds and the 911 Carrera 4S with all-wheel drive just 3.6 seconds. This advantage is increased by a further 0.2 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono Package. The top speeds are now 308 km/h (911 Carrera S) and 306 km/h for the all-wheel-drive version.

Clear design language, unmistakable identity

The exterior design is completely new and emphasises the leap in performance for the 911 type 992. Significantly wider wheel housings arch over the 20-inch front wheels and 21-inch rear wheels. The rear end is now the same width across all models, highlighting the slimline centre section. At the front, the body is 45 mm wider. Flush integration of the electrical pop-out handles in the doors emphasises the tapered and smooth side contour. Between the new LED headlights, a bonnet with a pronounced recess evokes the design of the first 911 generations. The rear is dominated on all models by the significantly wider, variable-position rear spoiler and the seamless, elegant light bar. Apart from the front and rear sections, the entire outer skin is now made from aluminium.

The completely new interior is characterised by the clear and straight lines of the dashboard with recessed instruments. The 911 models from the 1970s provided the inspiration here. Alongside the central rev counter – typical for Porsche – two thin, frameless freeform displays supply information to the driver. The centre screen of the PCM is now 10.9 inches, and can be operated quickly and without distraction thanks to the new architecture. Located underneath this there is a compact switch unit with five buttons for direct access to important vehicle functions.

New assistance systems increase safety and comfort

In a world first, Porsche has developed Wet mode, included as standard. This function detects water on the road, preconditions the control systems accordingly and warns the driver, who can then set up the vehicle for a particular emphasis on safety, by simply pushing a button or using the mode switch on the steering wheel (Sport Chrono Package).
