And the animated Pixar’s film ‘Cars’ has impressively transferred done just that: brought cars to life on the big screen,” says Dr. Sebastian Rudolph, Porsche AG’s Vice President Communications, Sustainability and Politics, in a company press statement. “The story conveys values such as friendship, love and mutual support — and in the middle of it all is a Porsche: ‘Sally Carrera.’”

Just as the original animated Sally was designed on the then-brand-new version of Porsche’s 911, so is her real-life twin. For you motorheads, the 2022 911 Carrera GTS has a “twin-turbo 3.0-liter flat-6 rated at 473 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, or enough for 0-60 mph acceleration in 3.1 seconds with the 8-speed dual-clutch automatic,”Motor Authority. The Sally Special’s 7-speed manual transmission means that the 0-60mph jolt will take you slightly longer: 3.9 seconds.
