2018 Porsche 911 Model Review, Specs, Pricing & Trims

2018 Porsche 911

The latest version of Porsche’s signature model receives minor improvements after a complete redesign in 2017. There’s over 20 model variants for the 2018 Porsche 911, starting at the standard rear-wheel-drive Carrera coupe and ending at the all-wheel-drive 911 Turbo. Models in between include targa roof and cabriolet variants as well as the well-equipped GTS and race-ready GT3.

Regardless of model variant, all Porsche 911 models feature Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), Porsche Communication Management (PCM) including navigation and Porsche’s new turbocharged engines. Over the years, the Porsche 911 has evolved from a sports car bred for on-track performance to a car that is as comfortable on your daily commute as it is darting in and out of high-speed corners.

What the Critics Say

“Few cars match the 911’s poise in so many areas. The 911 range is at once fast yet tremendously composed, rewarding and civilized.” — Edmunds.com

“No driver or passenger will question the primary mission of the GTS, which is to cover the real estate between two points in the shortest possible time while putting a smile on its operator’s face. Its handling is sharp and precise, its brakes are nosebleed strong, and the acceleration is dizzying — but it has a much softer side, too.” — Autotrader

What’s New for 2018

For 2018, the Porsche 911 lineup now features your First Year Schedule Maintenance program, improved cabin filter and an updated color palette inside and out.


Porsche 911 Features



As always, the wide array of Porsche options allow you to design a truly-unique sportscar, custom-tailored to you, and of course, unlike any other car anywhere in the world. From performance enhancements like Porsche’s Sport Exhaust System, Sport Chrono Package and Carbon-Ceramic Brakes to cabin comforts including 18-way Adaptive Sport Seats with Memory to an 820-watt Burmester® High-End Surround System, the 2018 Porsche 911 has endless customizable options to meet your high standards.


There are three separate powerplants that can be found across the 911 lineup. The most common is the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six that powers the Carrera and Carrera S models. This engine develops 370 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque in the Carrera and 420 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque in the Carrera S. The same twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six is tuned to 450 horsepower and 405 lb.-ft. of torque in the 911 GTS models. In the 911 Turbo and Turbo S you’ll find a larger 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged 6-cylinder that produces 540 horsepower in the 911 Turbo and 580 horsepower in the Turbo S. Both powerplants rocket the Porsche 911 from 0-60 in under 3 seconds. You will also find the fully-tuned version of this 3.8-liter twin-turbo under the hood of the all new 911 GT2 RS where it produces 700 horsepower.

The Porsche 911 GT3 carries the third powerplant — a naturally-aspirated 4.0-liter flat six bred specifically for the racetrack. Producing 500 horsepower and available with a manual transmission, the GT3 represents Porsche’s purest track-ready 911.
