The Porsche 911 hardly needs an introduction as one of the world’s best-known and most desirable GT cars. While its entry-level models are surprisingly comfortable cruisers that can be daily driven, the range also includes track-ready monsters with wild performance and wilder looks.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
For 2022, Porsche has added a GTS trim level to the lineup. The 911 also receives Porsche's latest infotainment system, which supports Android Auto.
The 911 range comprises Carrera Coupe, Targa, and Cabriolet body styles. Rear- and all-wheel drive (denoted by a “4” in the name) are available, as are manual and dual-clutch automatic transmissions. Carrera, Carrera S, and GTS variants use a 3.0L turbo six-cylinder engine. GT3 gets a 4.0L naturally aspirated motor, and Turbo and Turbo S variants use a turbocharged 3.8L.
Carrera models come with 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels, partial leather upholstery, heated four-way power front seats, active suspension management, auto-dimming mirrors, LED headlights, and front/rear park assist. You also get passive keyless entry, rain-sensing wipers, a garage door remote, two-zone A/C, a 10.9-inch touchscreen, part-digital gauge displays, a heated steering wheel, navigation, and an eight-speaker stereo.
GTS models get 20/21-inch wheels, race-tex upholstery, sport seats, larger brakes, sport suspension, and dynamic headlights.
GT3’s additions include leather/race-tex upholstery, adjustable suspension, rear-seat delete, and rear-wheel steering.
Finally, 911 Turbo models get full leather seats with 14-way adjustments, torque vectoring, and a 12-speaker stereo.
A premium package adds dynamic headlights, a surround-sound stereo, surround-view cameras, lane change assist, ventilated seats, power-folding mirrors, and ambient lighting. You can also add remote park assist to this package.
You can also add upgraded seats as a stand-alone option.
Porsche’s fuel consumption estimates start at 12.8/9.4 L/100 km (city/highway) for Carrera S models with the seven-speed manual transmission. At the other end of the scale is the GT3, which is rated for 17.0/13.1 L/100 km.
Porsche 911 competitors include the Aston Martin Vantage, BMW M8, Mercedes-AMG GT, and Ferrari F8.
