Porsche has rolled out the 8th-generation of its popular 911 - the Carrera 4S.

It boasts a stellar blend of incredible design cues and 331kW of raw on tap power that comes from its 6-cylinder twin-turbocharged engine, with a top speed of 306km/h.

Refined and improved

A genius addition to the 4S is its Wet mode, whereby sensors detect wet conditions, adjusting things like drivetrain and spoiler components for a safer more controlled drive on slippery roads.

Something you might not have picked up on first glance is the addition of a third brake light in the shape of the number 11 that is integrated just below the rear window.

Many people refer to the 911 as the complete driver's car and Carrera 4S only further rubber stamps that.
