Porsche 911 Named 2012 World Performance Car
Porsche 911, the seventh-generation vehicle in the line, has been named the 2012 World Performance Car. The announcement was made at a press conference hosted by Bridgestone Corporation, at the 2012 New York International Auto Show.

The Porsche 911 was one of 34 new-for-2012 vehicles selected for the annual awards program.

The World Performance Car honor is awarded by an international jury panel comprised of 66 top-level automotive journalists from 25 countries around the world. Each juror typically drives and evaluates new vehicles on a regular basis as part of his or her professional work. Through their respective outlets they collectively reach an audience of millions of automotive consumers in every corner of the globe.

Detlev von Platen, president and CEO of Porsche Cars North America said "We are honored that the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S was chosen by this distinguished group of jurors as the 2012 World Performance Car, for just the seventh time in almost 50 years the iconic 911 has been revised to the point of being a new-generation, and winning this award from a global team of world-class journalists is excellent validation for the work and dedication of everyone at Porsche."

The all-new 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera has been refined from the ground level, its Lower, wider, longer, more powerful and more efficient than its predecessor. Delivering 350hp and 400hp respectively, the 3.4-liter 911 Carrera and 3.8-liter Carrera S boxer engines are available with a seven-speed manual gearbox or the seven-speed dual-clutch Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) automatic.
