The Carrera may be the base model, but don’t underestimate it. 0-60 takes four seconds flat. The gauge cluster is now largely digital, but the tach still runs to its 7,500 rpm red line on an analog dial.
The 911 doesn’t skimp on interior luxury. Dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, partial leather upholstery, and Porsche’s app-based Connect system all come standard. The exterior keeps the classic 911 shape, with LED headlights and staggered wheels measuring 19 inches up front and 20 in the rear.
Porsche’s options list is long, elaborate, and expensive.
Power sport seats with memory settings are $2,330 that most owners will spend. The Premium Package is another popular addition, with Bose speakers, ventilated front seats, a surround-view camera, and blind-spot monitoring for $5,350.
Performance enthusiasts will want the Sport Chrono Package ($2,790), which drops 0.2 seconds off the 0-60 sprint thanks to launch control. Also included are additional driving modes, a dash-mounted chronograph, and tire temperature readouts.
Individual options are too exhaustive to list, but highlights include: an electric sunroof ($1,560), power-folding side mirrors ($370), automatic cornering headlights ($1,270), and leather sport seats ($810).
