Additional Info: Given the code 991, it is both longer and lower than it’s predecessor and has a longer wheelbase. The non S Carrera has a 345bhp 3.4 litre flat six and gets to 60 in 4.6 secs as a manual driven car. The 991 Porsche is available as a coupe or convertible and with either a 7 speed manual or automatic and further is available as an AWD Carrera 4 or 4S. The automatic’s weigh around 45-50lbs heavier, however PDK equipped cars can get the S to 60 in 4.1 secs and the non S in 4.4 secs and if that’s not enough you can add a sports chrono pack that can quicken that 0-60 time even more, with 3.9 secs for the S and 4.2 for the non S. As with most such sports cars nowadays, there are a number of options to upgrade straight from the manufacturer. In 2013 a 468bhp/325lbft GT3 Coupe was added and gets to 60 in 3.4 secs, a 512bhp/523lbft Turbo Coupe was added and gets to 60 in 3.1 secs and a 552bhp/553lbft Turbo S Coupe was added and gets to 60 in 3.0 secs. 2015 gets a Coupe, Cabriolet and Targa with power ranging from 345bhp to 423bhp and a 493bhp Coupe added in 2016. The 911 Turbo Coupe and Cabriolet from 2015 has 532bhp in standard trim, 571bhp in S trim (0-60 in 2.8 seconds for Coupe and 2.9 for Cabriolet).
