Porsche’s iconic 911 sports car celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2023 – and it’s never looked so good. This latest iteration also epitomises why the 911 remains so popular: it’s a thoroughbred with a unique engine in a unique position, yet at the same time no other sports car in the world offers so much practicality and day-to-day useability.
For your chance to win this beautiful Porsche 911 Carrera 4, worth a tank of petrol under £110,000, and a Waterfront House in Cornwall worth £4,500,000, with £100,000 in cash to help you settle in, enter the Omaze Million Pound House Draw, Cornwall by Sunday 12th March.
Resplendent in gorgeous Guards Red paintwork, with 10-spoke, two-tone ‘Turbo’ wheels and gloss black window trims, this Porsche 911 is particularly striking. And while the curvaceous silhouette still bears a strong resemblance to the ‘60s original, this newest model showcases a host of high-tech design details, including pop-out door handles and an active rear spoiler that automatically rises at high speeds.
Inside it’s equally modern but with the same unique layout as its ancestors. That means seating for four, so children can come with you, or adults on short journeys. Or fold the rear seats and use the space as a luggage shelf. Either way, together with a large front boot no other sports car is as practical.
Where’s the engine, then? Right at the back. And Porsche’s unique ‘flat six’ layout means this powerful twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre is mounted incredibly low. That creates space for the rear seats inside, and the boot – a.k.a the frunk – up front.
Performance is impressive, with 385PS, plus 450Nm of torque at 1950–5000rpm, seeing off 0-62mph in 4.0 seconds. Yet this is also the Carrera 4 model, which means it features Porsche’s very latest four-wheel drive system, with Porsche Traction Management. So you needn’t think twice about driving all year round.
That usable space, that practical performance – no wonder the Porsche 911 is often likened to a Swiss Army knife. It really can do it all.
How do you drive such a special sports car? However you want, especially because Omaze has specified this Porsche 911 with the optional Sport Chrono Package. A dial on the steering wheel lets you select Normal, Sport, Sport+ or Wet settings, or an Individual mode that tailors the car to your own personal preferences.
You can either press the Sport Response button to intensify the powertrain’s reactions and take control of the gearbox with the steering wheel-mounted paddles. Or you can leave the eight-speed gearbox in automatic mode, switch the adaptive dampers to their most relaxed setting, set the cruise control and chill out.
That’s not all. The Porsche 911 is already incredibly luxurious, but with over £10,000 of optional extras on this vehicle, it’s extra special. You sit on 14-way electrically adjustable sports seats, with the cabin bathed in the glow of customisable ambient lighting. The steering wheel is heated, the upgraded Bose® audio system features 12 speakers, and the large 10.9-inch central infotainment touchscreen is complete with Apple® CarPlay and Android Auto™.
A rear-view camera to make parking easier? Check. An innovative steering system that reduces the effort needed during low-speed manoeuvres? Check. Trick headlights that swivel with your steering inputs, lighting the road ahead? Check. And the list goes on…
Sounds too good to be true? Amazingly it isn’t, because this Porsche really does cover all the bases. For a chance to make it yours, enter the Cornwall House Draw by Midnight on Sunday 12th March. And that’s not all. Entering also gives you the chance to win a Waterfront House in Cornwall worth £4,500,000, along with £100,000 in cash to help you settle in. The best part? All your entries will support Marie Curie to improve end of life care. Together, we really can make an incredible difference.
