The 911 Carrera will feature a 370 hp engine while the 911 Carrera S will have a pumped-up power unit that will produce 420 hp of max power. The 50 hp increase in the Carrera S model is due to a combination of turbochargers with modified compressors, enhanced exhaust system and tuned engine management.
