Porsche today unveiled its new pack leader for the remainder of the 2017 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship – the new Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Coupe Safety Car.
The all-wheel drive 911 will perform safety car duties starting at this weekend’s Watpac Townsville 400, replacing the sporty Cayenne S SUV.
The latest 911 Carrera 4S uses an innovative bi-turbocharged 3.0-litre, six-cylinder engine to produce 309 kW (420 hp) and torque of 500 Nm while consuming 7.9 L/100 kms.
“We’re thrilled to supply the impressive all-wheel drive 911 Carrera 4S Coupe to Supercars for the remainder of the 2017 season,” said Paul Ellis, Porsche Cars Australia’s Director of Public Relations and Motorsport.
“It's great to showcase our most iconic sports car – the 911 – at the head of the Supercars field. The newest generation 911 Carrera 4S is a brilliant example of Porsche engineering and will be more than up to the task of performing its role as the Supercars Safety Car for the remainder of this season.”
