Porsche has again been successful in the International Engine of the Year Awards. Thanks to the 3.8-liter unit from the 911 Carrera S model, the Stuttgart manufacturer has underlined its position in the field of high performance competitors, receiving the coveted `Best New Engine 2009 Award'.

For eleven years, this prize has been awarded for outstanding engine characteristics. With flat-six engines featuring direct fuel injection technology, Porsche continues to increase the sports driving character, efficiency and environmental compatibility of all its sports cars, and this is especially true of the 911.

In combination with the innovative Porsche double-clutch transmission (PDK), fuel consumption can be reduced by more than 13% and CO2 emissions by almost 15%.

Output of the 3.8-liter power unit in the 911 Carrera S is up by 30hp to 385hp, pushing the Carrera S beyond 186 mph. Despite this power and performance, the 911 Carrera S Coup with PDK offers a combined average fuel economy of just 27.7mpg.
