The 991 Carrera S we road tested in 2016 was priced from £85,857 at the time. For the 992, the price for what is now the entry point to the 911 range rises to £93,110.

While that figure does include all of the sorts of creature comforts you would expect from a car at this price point – think climate control, the latest infotainment suite, leather upholstery – you’ll need to part with a lot more money for the options you’ll really want. The sports exhaust is £1844, lowered PASM is £665 and the Sport Chrono Package is £1646. These represent a small handful of the extras added to our test car. All up, it was a £109,302 car, and that still doesn’t include a rear wiper (which would be a further £245).

For proof of the pre-eminence of the modern Porsche 911 as an ownership proposition, look no further than its predicted residual values

While the latest mechanical revision has muted the flat-six motor’s audible character to a greater extent even than in the turbocharged 991, it does pay dividends in terms of fuel consumption. A touring economy of 39.4mpg is highly impressive given its near supercar level of performance.
