Manager of Feature Content Carlos Lago tests the new 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S. Though it may not look all that different, this is indeed the next generation of Porsche’s iconic sports car. What’s new? It’s slightly bigger, heavier, quicker and pricier. In this video, Carlos walks through the most significant changes inside and out. Later, he hops behind the wheel to see if this new version delivers the 911 driving experience that we adore.
