Post Frankfurt 2011: 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S Impresses Easily

This will likely come as no surprise, but the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S is already turning heads following its reveal at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

And, for those of you who enjoy visuals, we've got a video!

The story from AutoBlog:

2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S is seven shades of awesome

We like the new 2012 Porsche 911 so much that we thought, heck, why not show it to you twice. This time, however, we bring you the more powerful 911 Carrera S from the floor of the*Frankfurt Motor Show. It's the more powerful sibling to the standard 911, and a German sports car that we're eager to get some seat time in.

Buried in the tail is a 3.8-liter flat-six engine that produces 400 horsepower, and can be paired with either a PDK or the new seven-speed manual gearbox. A 911 Carrera S equipped with the auto-shifting unit can run from 0-62 miles per hour in just 4.3 seconds. If you opt for the Sport Plus package, that time drops to just 4.1 seconds. Seeing as this is a*Porsche, the Sport Plus package is just one of many things you will be opting for.

Regardless, the new 911, while looking similar to all past examples, offers subtle styling cues that reveal it as the latest member of an iconic family. The wheelbase is 100 millimeters longer and the height of the car has been reduced. Both of these factors give the 2012 911 Carrera S a slightly sleeker profile.

Are you in the market for the latest 911? You'll need at least $96,400 to put a Carrera S in your driveway. That's $13,771.43 per gear.

It doesn't take much to get us drooling over something like this. Even with the price tag, this might be a must-have for hardcore Porsche enthusiasts and current owners.

What about you? Does this 911 get your gears turning?
