Porsche 911 Carrera S (2014): 30 facts and highlights

1. faster top speed

The fastest speed that the car can reach.
304km/h
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 447km/h

2. larger engine size

This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.
3.8l
SRT Viper (2014): 8.4l

3. faster acceleration (0-100)

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
4.5s
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport: 2.5s

4. Has dual-clutch transmission

A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is an automated manual transmission that allows the driver to control gear-shifts themselves or to let the computer decide. Upshifts are extremely fast, resulting in smooth acceleration, and due to the uninterrupted power flow it also has the benefit of increasing fuel efficiency.

5. higher maximum torque

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful car, and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
440Nm
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 1566Nm

6. height

1.29m
Gumpert Apollo: 1.11m

7. shorter length

4.49m
Lotus Elise (2014): 3.82m

8. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
400hp
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 1244hp

9. width

1.81m
Lotus Elise (2014): 1.72m

10. less CO2 emissions

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
224g/km
BMW i8 (2014): 49g/km

11. weight

1.39t
Alfa Romeo 4C: 895kg

12. more cylinders

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport: 16

13. better fuel economy (highway)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
7.1l/100 km
Lotus Elise (2014): 5l/100 km

14. better fuel economy (combined)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
9.5l/100 km
BMW i8 (2014): 2.1l/100 km

16. Has a petrol (gasoline) engine

A petrol (gasoline) engine offers several advantages over diesel. For example the engines tend to be lighter and cheaper than their diesel counterparts. Petrol engines also tend to have higher horsepower, and the fuel is more readily available.

18. better fuel economy (city)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
13.8l/100 km
Lotus Elise (2014): 8.3l/100 km

19. Has ISOFIX/LATCH

ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.

20. lower coefficient of drag

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel economy.
0.29Cd
Nissan GT-R (2014): 0.26Cd

21. longer wheelbase

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).
2.45m
Ferrari FF (2014): 2.99m

22. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
64l
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport: 100l

23. longer basic warranty (years)

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
4yrs
Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 (2014): 5yrs

24. USB ports

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
1
Aston Martin V8 Vantage (2008): 2

25. more valves
