2020 Porsche 911 Review: Design, Performance, Features, and Price | The Porsche 911 has been in the market for over five decades. The sports car lineup was first produced back in 1963. And today, we can see its latest iteration: the New Porsche 911. Are you a long-time fan of the Porsche 911 lineup? Or perhaps just interested in the new model? Either way, here we will tell you about the 2020 model’s design, performance, features, and price. Ready? Let’s start.
2020 Porsche 911 Design
First and foremost, let’s talk about design. Porsche redesigns the lineup with the 2020 model. The redesign, however, doesn’t change the things that make a 911 special. Yes, there are changes but these changes make the 2020 model a more stylish, sleek and obviously, fast. It is not an exaggeration if we say the redesign enhances what the 911 model has.
In the 2020 911 model, you see a sports car with a wider body yet still manage to be slim and stylish. That’s the exterior. What about the interior? The same stylishness and sleekness can be found in the interior as well. Inside, you can find a fantastic interior with premium materials, comfortable seating and of course, high-tech features. In short, the design of the exterior and interior are impressive.
At the moment, there is only one engine confirmed for the 2020 Porsche 911. All models, both the base trim (known as S) and all-wheel drive (known as 4S) trim level, will be powered by a 3.0-liter, twin-turbo, flat-six gasoline engine paired with an eight-speed PDK auto transmission gearbox.
The engine is very powerful. It has an output of 443 horsepower with 390 lb-ft of torque. The 0 to 60 mph between the coupe and convertible models are slightly different. The coupe model can reach 0 to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, while its convertible counterpart can reach it in 4.2 seconds.
As for the wheel drive system, it depends on the trim level. The base S model comes with a rear-wheel-drive system while the 4S model comes with an all-wheel-drive system. In terms of performance, there is no significant difference between these two other than the wheel drive system.
The handling is impressive. So is the transmission, which shifts reliably and quickly. Not to mention it has excellent road grip, nimble and responsive machine too. The 2020 911 is as reliable as its predecessors, if not more. The new sports car’s performance is something that you can expect from a Porsche 911: very powerful and reliable.
2020 Porsche 911 Features
Let’s talk about features. What kind of features does the new Porsche 911 come with? Even in the base S model, there are lots of features included. The features are just so many you won’t realize it is a base model.
For example, a 10.9-inch touchscreen display with Porsche’s infotainment system (the Porsche Communication Management), navigation, automatic climate control (dual-zone), an audio system with eight speakers, Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, a WiFi hotspot, and Radio Plus.
There are also safety features like automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, a rearview camera, and parking sensors. And these are the standards. Really awesome, isn’t it?
2020 Porsche 911 Price
Lastly, the price. How much does the new Porsche 911 cost? The base price of the coupe model of the 2020 Porsche 911 is about $113,300 while the convertible model is about $126,100. The all-wheel-drive variants, the XS models, are more expensive. They are in the $120,000 range for the coupe model and $130,000 range for the convertible model.
The base trim levels of the new 911 have been released. The higher trim levels, unfortunately, haven’t been released. No need to worry, though. The higher trim levels are expected to hit the market soon, somewhere in early 2020.
The previous generation of the lineup comes with various models such as Carrera, Carrera T, Turbo, GTS, GT2 RS, GT3, and Targa 4, not just S and 4S. Will Porsche release these models for the 2020 911? At the moment, only Porsche knows. We can only wait for now.
So, what do you think? These are the design, performance, features, and price of the 2020 Porsche 911. The 2020 model, just like its predecessors, continues to amaze us with its looks and capability. It is not a surprise that the lineup has survived all these years, even amidst the fierce competition in the sports car market.
