The car runs plenty strong with the "base" Carrera engine's 350 horsepower, but for even more, you can choose 400 (Carrera S), 500 (Turbo) or 530 (Turbo S).

The "base" 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe and Cabriolet come well equipped with bi-xenon headlights, 19-inch wheels, an electric parking brake, dual-zone automatic climate control, Alcantara trim, a navigation system with a 7-inch display and a 235-watt 9-speaker audio system with USB and auxiliary inputs.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


For the purists, there's still a manual transmission offering, though it has grown to seven speeds.
by The Car Connection (Dec, 2012)
The PDK transmission is a seven-speed dual-clutch affair that lets the driver glide easily in fully-automatic mode, or select their own shifts with the paddle shifters.
by The Car Connection (Dec, 2012)
Any of these engines can be paired with Porsche's excellent 7-speed PDK twin-clutch shiftable automatic transmission.
by KBB (Oct, 2012)


Don't worry, though, the rest of the 911 range, including Turbo, Turbo S, cabriolets, and more, is still available for purchase-but they're based on the older 997 platform.
by The Car Connection (Dec, 2012)
Turbo models use a 6-speed.
by KBB (Oct, 2012)
Whichever drive system you choose, the base Carrera is powered by a 3.4-liter, 350-horsepower flat-six engine that can launch the car to 60 mph in the mid-four-second range.
by The Car Connection (Dec, 2012)


Keyless entry, USB, iPod interface, Bluetooth, and automatic two-zone climate control are also standard.
by The Car Connection (Dec, 2012)
Either engine can be paired with either the seven-speed manual or the PDK transmission.
by The Car Connection (Dec, 2012)
The manual alternative in the normally aspirated cars is the unique 7-speed box Porsche introduced last year.
by KBB (Oct, 2012)


Still a tremendous value, the 2013 Porsche 911 range offers a great balance between dedicated sports car handling and daily practicality.
by The Car Connection (Dec, 2012)
We say almost only because of the electronic power steering system, which while the best of the EPS implementations to date, still doesn't match the feel we're used to from hydraulic power steering.
by The Car Connection (Dec, 2012)
The Carrera 4 models include the excellent AWD system.

The Carrera, Carrera S, and their all-wheel drive Carrera 4 variants are the only models updated to the new 991 basis thus far-the Turbo, GT3, and other variants are yet to come.
by The Car Connection (Dec, 2012)
Go crazy checking boxes and a "base" Carrera coupe can top $120,000; a Turbo S Cabriolet can push $200,000.
by KBB (Oct, 2012)
The seventh-generation platform that now underlies all Carrera (not yet Turbo) 911s carries on the unmistakable traditional appearance even though the roof is now lower, the length and wheelbase have increased a lot, and detailing, fascias and lighting are new.
