Porsche will launch the facelifted 911 Carrera in India onJune 29. The Stuttgart-based automaker will announce the prices of all models, which debuted at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.

On the powertrain front, the new 911 gets a new 3.0-litre turbocharged flat-six engine, which is a first for the 911 Carrera lineup. This one is more powerful than the current model by 20bhp and 60Nm of torque. The power hike has put the entry-level Carrera's power output in the 370bhp, 450Nm territory and 420bhp, 500Nm for the Carrera S. Transmission options include the 7-speed manual or the brand's 7-speed PDK automated manual gearbox. Power is sent to the rear wheels.

The car also looks different than its predecessor thanks to the signature round headlamps and unique four-point DRLs. The size of the front air intakes has increased and the inset door handles come without recess covers. At the back, vertical louvres for the engine cover, revised tail lamps, new vents on the rear bumper and dual exhaust tips can be seen.

The interior of the 911 Carrera also gets updates. The latest feature is the new seven-inch touch screen system, which gets multi-touch and handwriting inputs. It supports Android and Apple smartphones through Bluetooth or Wi-Fi as well. The system also features a new Porsche Communication Management (PCM) and online navigation. The latter comes integrated with Google Earth and Google Streetview. There is a switch in the cabin to be able to lower the height of the car by 10mm through the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which is offered as standard.

We expect to get the prices for the 911 Carrera, 911 Carrera S, 911 Carrera Cabriolet and the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet by the end of this month. Since all these models will be CBU units, we can expect prices to start from Rs 1.4 crore to Rs 2.5 crore.
