A stunning new 911 Carrera has been added to the New South Wales police car fleet. This beautiful car will be used as a community engagement vehicle in the state and not for crime pursuits. This is part of the Porsche Cars Australiaâ€™s continuing collaboration with the local police and they have now replaced a Panamera with the 911 Carrera. The Porsche will be used at community events, local youth and school programs and also at charity fundraisers. Earlier, the Panamera had also been used for social events only. The main idea is to encourage positive interaction between police and the community, especially the youth.
The Carrera is truly splendid with full police livery and also includes obligatory red and blue LED roof lights. The two-door automobile is propelled by a rear-mounted powerful 257 kW six-cylinder boxer engine. The car dashes from 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds. Despite this, the fuel consumption is 8.2 l/100 km (34 mpg imp) with CO2 emissions of 194 g/km. The design of the eye-catching car was inspired by almost 60 public entries from design students at university, tertiary campuses and high schools.
A 31-year old Iranian student, Sam Nejat, currently studying at the University of Western Sydney majoring Master of Accountancy has created the winning design of the car. The only expenses for the NSW Police will be fuel and toll way costs and the other expenses will be taken care of by Porsche. Recent striking police cars from around the world include the McLaren 12C Spider police car in the UK, Lamborghini Huracan in Italy and the awesome Lamborghini Aventador police car in Dubai.
The NSW police will use the Carrera 911 at public and social events in the state to engage the community, said NSW Police Superintendent Alan Sicard.
This car will thus be an active and engaging PR medium for promoting dialog with disadvantaged youth. It will hopefully help to foster better social interaction and also achieve much more for the community. The robust and highly acclaimed Carrera 911 is a great addition to the NSW force and the expectations from this stunner run high. The NSW Police force claims that its official Facebook page has received almost one million hits on account of the Porsche.
