Porsche Panorama Editor Pete Stout is in Spain to drive the new 991-2-generation 911 Carrera and Carrera S for the first time. The new, turbocharged 3.0-liter flat sixes mark the largest departure from 911 tradition since Porsche switched from air-cooled to water-cooled flat sixes, threatening the character of the 911 that enthusiasts love.
