Porsche 911 vs. the competition
2019 Porsche 911
2018 Porsche 718 Cayman
Porsche 911 vs. Porsche Cayman
Thanks to its smaller size and mid-engine layout, the Cayman is a more nimble-handling sports car. It's also considerably less expensive than the 911. But the 911 is more powerful and has the practical advantage of rear seats. Porsche also offers a lot more customization options on the 911 as well as a lot more variants.
Porsche 911 vs. BMW M4
Porsche's standard 911 Carrera is more expensive and has less interior volume than the M4, but it accelerates quicker to 60 mph and is lighter. The 911 also benefits from a longer options list that buyers can use to customize to their hearts' desire. Some, however, may prefer the more upright, sedan-based ergonomics of the M4.
Porsche 911 vs. Chevrolet Corvette
While there is more of a gap between base versions, performance between these two models is like splitting hairs. The Corvette may win out on the price equation, but the 911 offers more customization. The 911 also has a ride quality that's more suited for daily usage or highway touring. You can also get it in all-wheel-drive for all-weather driving. Read Edmunds' long-term road test of the Chevrolet Corvette.
The 2019 Porsche 911 is available in a dizzying variety of configurations that range from truly quick to super fast and blindingly speedy. Interestingly, all 911s — with two spectacular exceptions — are turbocharged. That's right, even the base 911, the regular old Carrera, has two turbochargers heaving air into its horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine. And, yes, that engine is still hanging off the back of the 911 where physics says it shouldn't be, and yet Porsche's engineers make it work brilliantly anyhow.
Introduced in 2017, the engine in the Carrera, Targa and Cabriolet is still a six-cylinder, but the displacement is now 3.0 liters (down from the previous non-turbocharged 3.4 liters), and thanks to its turbochargers, horsepower has risen from 350 horsepower to a mighty 370 hp. And it gets better fuel mileage. Move up to the Carrera S model with its larger turbos and advanced exhaust system, and the output of the 3.0-liter six rises to a spine-tingling 420 hp. The 2018 GTS has 450 hp. On the other side, an enthusiast special, the Carrera T, uses the base Carrera engine but pairs it with lightweight track-inspired hardware.
As before, the Carrera coupe and Cabriolet convertible are rear-wheel-drive, while anything with a 4 in its name is all-wheel-drive (including the retractable-roof Targa 4 and Targa 4S). All the Carreras are available with either a seven-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch (Porsche's Doppelkupplung) transmission.
And then there are the Turbos, with a capital T. Using a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter six-cylinder, the Turbo models are rated at 540 hp for the base version and 580 hp for the Turbo S. They are available as coupes or cabriolets and feature standard PDK and all-wheel drive. The Turbos are simply some of the quickest and fastest cars available at any price. And the price is high.
The only two non-turbocharged exceptions for 2019 are the revised 911 GT3 and GT3 RS. The GT3 has a non-turbocharged 4.0-liter flat-six that produces 500 hp, while the GT3 RS features an uprated version of that engine that produces 520 hp. They're both paired to a variety of track-focused chassis enhancements and weight-reducing body pieces. The GT3 is also available in a wingless Touring model for those wanting a more subdued body shape.
Finally, there's the all-conquering GT2 RS. Take the turbo engine out of the Turbo S, bump up power to 700 hp, and place it in the GT3 RS body. It's currently the fastest, most powerful production 911 made, and it's reasonable to assume it'll hold its position for a few years.
Beyond just the right engine and body, Porsche offers a blizzard of expensive options. Use the buying tools on Edmunds to help you shovel your way through them and find the right 2019 Porsche 911 for you.
