Porsche 991 Model Guides
There are too many "regular" 911 models to mention in just this paragraph. In fact, during the 991 911 generation we saw a total of 35 individual models (not including special edition cars). The base Carrera, Carrera S, Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S were all available as both coupe and convertible bodystyles and were made as both 991.1 and 991.2 models. The Targa 4 and Targa 4S are both all-wheel drive and likewise were available in both generations. The Carrera GTS range grew, now with five models (GTS Coupe, GTS Cabriolet, 4 GTS Coupe, 4 GTS Cabriolet and Targa GTS). The 911 Turbo and Turbo Cabriolet continued to sit at the top of the regular range, with an entirely new Carrera T variant making an appearance in 2018 as a refreshingly simple carl with just the basics for a great driving experience. The biggest difference between the 991.1 and 991.2 cars is obviously the change from naturally aspirated engines to the turbocharged flat-six unit, as well as some design tweaks and a much improved PCM and entertainment system. The Carrera T was the only regular model not offered as a 991.1 generation car.
Porsche 991 Special Models
The special editions is where it gets fun for the 991 generation 911. The anniversary edition was a stunning design exercise coupled with a tasty powerkit fettled 430 hp flat 6. The 991 generation GT3 was immediately polarizing when released thanks to no manual option, yet it still blew away every driver, taking performance cars to a new level (yet again). The Turbo S models continued to wow with their stupid-fast speed and GT-comfort, while the track-focused GT3 RS was still the weapon of choice for the track-rats. The finest 991.1 car though was definitely the 911 R, thanks to its 4-litre naturally aspirated flat-six engine and six-speed manual gearbox. Probably the best 911 of the modern era. For the 991.2 special edition cars Porsche listened to its buyers and released the 911 GT3 with a manual gearbox option as well as giving us the GT3 Touring option (no wings, subtler look, manual only) and a new Speedster model that proved that manuals are just better (always). There was no doubt that the 991.2 GT2 RS was the pinnacle of the 991 generation in terms of sheer performance. It is the fastest and most powerful 911 in history and the quickest production car to lap the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
