The big news yesterday out of the L.A. Auto Show for us was the unveiling of the all-new Jeep Gladiator, but for the world it was the debut of the eight- generation Porsche 911.

Porsche design has always been, Porsche design. While that statement is most certainly a platitude Porsche design through the years tends to evolve almost seamlessly. It’s more akin to watching a child grow, day to day unnoticed, but when you look at it through the years, wow! The newest design is just that and while different it doesn’t make you question whether it’s a 911 or not, it certainly is and more than ever in terms of power.

The newest variation of the turbocharged flat-six engines are the most powerful ever by the German manufacturer for the 911. The base model sees an increase of 15hp and the S an increase of 24hp and the power increases continue down the range of the 911. All this power combining for a 0-60mph time that hovers around 3.5-seconds for the various trims that Porsche options and as you know by now there are many.

On the inside the interior features the usual amenities and upgrades: new seats, 10.9-inch screen and swarm based navigation. The same is true of the safety tech such as, adaptive cruise control and an all-new wet mode. A manufacturer of driving cars first and foremost Porsche now rivals other luxury manufacturers on the inside, down to the analog clock on the dash.
