2019 Porsche 911 Model Review with Prices, Photos, & Specs
About the Porsche 911
The latest version of Porsche’s signature model receives minor improvements after a complete redesign in 2017. There are over 20 model variants for the 2019 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’s New for 2019
Although the Porsche 911 enters the 2019 model year relatively unchanged, a new model joins the lineup this year. The new track-inspired Porsche 911 GT3 RS launches with an impressive 520 horsepower, making it the most powerful naturally aspirated car ever made by Porsche. There are over 20 different variants of the 911 offered for 2019.
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
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 2019 Porsche 911 has endless customizable options to meet your high standards.
Three individual powerplants are available across the 911 range, but the most common is the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six which powers 2019 Carrera models. Under the hood of the Carrera, that engine develops 370 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque. In the Carrera S, it produces 420 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque. That same twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six is tuned to 450 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque in 911 GTS models. In the 911 Turbo and Turbo S you’ll find a larger 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged 6-cylinder that develops 540 horsepower in the 911 Turbo and 580 horsepower in the Turbo S. Both powerplants rocket the 2019 911 from zero to sixty in less than 3 seconds. You can also find the fully-tuned version of this 3.8-liter twin-turbo under the hood of the 911 GT2 RS where it develops 700 horsepower.
Lastly, the Porsche 911 GT3 carries the third powerplant — a naturally-aspirated 4.0-liter flat six engineered specifically for the track. Generating 520 horsepower and once again available with a manual transmission, the GT3 represents Porsche’s purest track-ready 911.
