The new Porsche 911 is here. The 992 is the eighth-generation of Porsche's iconic sports car and replaces the 991 model.

At launch, and so tested here by Prior, it's only available in 444bhp (450hp) Carrera S form, but in both two and four wheel drive, both versions of which now have the same body width. It's fitted with an eight-speed PDK twin clutch gearbox - a manual will be offered later - and stretches towards £100,000 in the UK.

That'll pitch it against some interesting rivals; probably everything from a Jaguar F-Type through a Mercedes-AMG GT to the likes of the Audi R8 and, in the faster 911 forms yet to come, the likes of the Aston Martin Vantage and McLaren 570S.

But what's it like right now? We take to the track at Valencia and the roads surrounding it to find out.

The most informative 992 vid thus far - and entertaining, too. Ta. 

And it's very interesting to hear that as well as being better all-round than its predecessor, the 992 is also an entertaining drive - is that a first for a new 911 vs. old 911?
