The New 911 Unveiled On Porsche Carrera Cup Asia Race Weekend At Sepang International Circuit.
The eighth generation of the iconic 911 (series 992) officially reached Malaysian shores on the 12th of July 2019 and it was launched by Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP) over the same race weekend of Porsche Carrera Cup Asia (PCCA) race series Rounds 6, 7 and 8 at Sepang International Circuit – a testament to the racing heritage of the 911.
The new 911 Carrera S/4S spots a full range of improvements over its predecessors, which could be read from a drive report recently concluded by our resident contributor Andre Lam. Click here for the jump to that article.
“The new 911 is a reflection of the past and a vision of the future, with its iconic silhouette and timeless design. It remains a sports car icon that has retained the public’s fascination since its arrival in the automotive scene over half a century ago. Due to the passionate and loyal following here, it comes as no surprise that Malaysia is the top market for the 911 in 2018 within the Porsche Asia Pacific region. The 911 GT3 Cup Car training at Porsche Experience Centre Sepang also took place for the first time in South East Asia in 2018, a reflection of the fervent customer base,” said Christopher Hunter, Chief Executive Officer of Sime Darby Auto Performance during the launch of the new 911.
He added: “With the new standard Wet Mode function, the iconic model’s capability in handling difficult adverse driving conditions is second to none, which is especially useful in our climate.”
