2019 Porsche 911 Model Review
About the 2019 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 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 2019
The Porsche 911 enters the 2019 model year almost completely unchanged aside from the addition of a new model variant. The track-inspired Porsche 911 GT3 RS will debut with a blistering 520 horsepower, giving it the distinct honor of being the most powerful naturally aspirated car ever produced by Porsche.
There are over 20 different variants of the 911 offered for 2019.
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.
A total of three distinct powerplants are available across the entire 911 range, but the most common is the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six that powers 2019 Carrera models. Beneath the hood of the Carrera, this engine produces 370 horsepower along with 331 lb-ft of torque. In Carrera S models, this engine cranks out 420 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque. 911 GTS models feature that same twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six, only this version is tuned to 450 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque. An even larger 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged 6-cylinder provides 540 horsepower in the 911 Turbo and 580 horsepower in the Turbo S. Both engines can take the 2019 911 from zero to sixty in under 3 seconds. The fully-tuned version of the 3.8-liter twin-turbo is found on the 911 GT2 RS which produces an astounding 700 horsepower.
