Porsche's facelifted models of the 911 Carrera are finally coming to India this month. The new models premiered at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show and the carmaker will now launch these in India as well.

The fascia of the 911 Carrera gets the signature round headlamps, but with distinctive four-point DRLs. There are huge air intakes in the front, while the sides get inset door handles without recess covers. The rear bumper gets new vents and dual exhaust tips. Revised tail lamps and vertical louvres for the engine cover complete the changes at the back.

The changes in the interior include a new seven-inch touch screen system. It gets a new Porsche Communication Management (PCM) and online navigation. This navigation system comes integrated with Google Earth and Google Streetview. The touch screen unit also features multi-touch and handwriting inputs and supports Android and Apple smartphones through Bluetooth or Wi-Fi as well.

It’s not just the cosmetic changes, but the cars get a new 3.0-litre turbocharged flat-six engine. This is a first for the 911 Carrera lineup. It gets a power bump of 20bhp and 60Nm over the current models. The entry-level Carrera's engine now has a power output of 370bhp and 450Nm, while the Carrera S gets a 420bhp, 500Nm unit.Either the cars get a 7-speed manual or the brand's 7-speed PDK automated manual gearbox, which sends power to the rear wheels. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) comes standard to be able to lower the height of the car by 10mm.

The 911 Carrera, 911 Carrera S, 911 Carrera Cabriolet and the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet are expected to be offered in India through the CBU route. Prices will be announced soon.
