For now, the Porsche 911 range is offered only with turbocharged engines.
The base 911 Carrera and Carrera 4 are powered by a 3.0-litre turbocharged flat-six engine with 283kW of power and 450Nm of torque.
Moving to the Carrera S and 4S gets you 331kW and 530Nm. Models with a ‘4’ in their name are all-wheel drive.
The range-topping Turbo and Turbo S draw on a 3.8-litre six-cylinder turbocharged engine with 428kW of power and 750Nm of torque in the Turbo, and 478kW/800Nm in the Turbo S. It’s all-wheel drive as standard.
The only transmission offered across the 911 range is an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. A manual won’t be offered on the regular range, but high-end GT cars are still set to feature three pedals as an option.
The Porsche 911 range uses the following amounts of fuel on the combined cycle:
- 911 Carrera: 9.4L/100km
