What You Will Like

In the world of high-end sports cars, the 911 is arguably the most iconic model in history. Though the design has continued to change over the last 50 years, the fundamentals are still in place: rear-mounted flat-6 engine and a precision chassis developed with handling in mind. Together, the components add up to a sports car that's hard to beat both in terms of aesthetics and performance. The 911's a capable competitor to other sport coupes such as the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Audi R8, BMW M3 and Nissan GT-R.

What's New For 2016

Porsche has once again added a new 911 variant in 2016: The GT3 RS. Slotting above the standard GT3, the RS costs about $50,000 more than the standard version but adds a large helping of track ready performance to the equation.

Porsche have further tweaked the engine sitting in the back of the GT3 for an additional 25 hp, bringing the total up to an even 500 for the RS. More aggressive aerodynamics are immediately obvious after taking one look at the massive rear wing and louvered front fenders, but less obvious are the weight savings. The front fenders and the trunk lid are now made from carbon-fiber, while the roof is actually made from magnesium. The result is an even faster, even more focused track car than ever.


  • Basic Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Loading Comparison...


The Porsche 911 is unique, preserving its lineage while leading the pack, for decades. Its shape is iconic, recognized by billions of people around the world.

There are six levels of performance, from the base Carrera through the Turbo S to the GT3. Each has its own looks and feel. There is a Targa-top model, as well as a convertible Cabriolet.

The 2016 Porsche 911 isn’t changed, because an extensive freshening is coming for 2017. However, there is a new model, the GT3 RS, a street-legal race car, built so the actual racecar, which has its own global series, can be homologated.

One of the best sports car to drive on a race track, the 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is stripped to the bone to save weight, with magnesium roof, carbon-fiber hood and trunk lid, carbon-fiber seats and a rollcage. Because of that cage, it’s only 22 pounds lighter than the GT3, with a curb weight of 3130 pounds. It uses a 4.0-liter flat-six engine making 500 horsepower and 338 pound-feet of torque, not turbocharged, mated to a racing dual-clutch seven-speed transmission. It will hit 60 mph in 3.1 seconds, 124 mph in 10.9 seconds, and more than 200 mph.

The 911 lineup starts with the Carrera, which uses a direct-injected 350-horsepower flat-six 3.4-liter engine, the S models gets a 3.8-liter with 400 hp, the GTS gets 430 hp, and the GT3 gets 475. All are rear-wheel drive.

Then the turbochargers are bolted on, and the 911 Turbo makes 520 hp and Turbo S 560 hp; both are all-wheel drive.

The transmission will be a 7-speed manual or seven-speed paddle-shifting twin-clutch.

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has crash-tested the 911, although too many too-fast drivers have. It’s not a car to take lightly.


Porsche prices have always been set by whatever the Porsche lover or admirer will pay, which maybe explains exorbitant upgrades. For example, if all you want is a Carrera Coupe you can get one for $84,300, but if you want a turbocharged convertible, the Cabriolet Turbo will cost nearly twice that, $163,000. The ultimate 560-hp Turbo S Coupe climbs past that, to $182,700.

The base 3.4-liter Targa is $102,930, with 4S and 4GTS models available with the 3.8-liter engine and all-wheel-drive.

Comfort and technology options are available, making your sports car function like a luxury sedan inside, while driving the price up.

Dealers also sell things to personalize your Porsche, such as spoilers, fascia, wheels, decals and clear taillamps.


It has a low sloped nose, wide front track, rising fenders with rounded headlamps, and fastback roofline. The wheelbase has grown over the years, out of its awkward looks like an upside-down bathtub, and now stretches the lines into handsome arches and curves. A wide rear track, especially on the turbos with all-wheel-drive, heightens the Coke-bottle shape.

The new 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS has vents all over the place, and a giant wing over a ducktail spoiler.

The Targa looks ’70s retro, but it functions thoroughly modern. It opens in a complicated meshing of parts that’s fascinating to watch, as it tidily folds and stows itself.


If you overlook the rollcage in the GT3 RS, all Porsche 911 cabins look the same, and that’s a good thing, at least for the buyer of the base Carrera. It’s a good fit for the task of the 911, a sporty daily driver. The cabin feels open, with a big windscreen and windows. The front seats are comfortable, the so-called rear seats are good for packages–although we once took a full-grown woman for a wild ride back there, over a hundred miles of twisty German roads, and she climbed out with only a few creaks but a big smile.

The front trunk holds a good amount of road-trip gear.

This generation of 911, for the first time, has a full center console, which doesn’t skimp on the switchgear. Yet it has a spare look, taken from the Panamera sedan. It’s the first Porsche with touch-screen interfaces.

Driving Impressions

Any sports car would envy the stability, balance, agility and coordination of the Porsche 911, even the Turbo S. With neutral handling, a nimble suspension, amazing brakes, and fast acceleration (awesome in the Turbo and Turbo S), it’s a total package.

The 911 no longer oversteers, thanks to electronic management and evolved suspension engineering. The only weakness is the electric power steering; it’s accurate and nicely weighted, but doesn’t provide the same feel as the earlier 911 with hydraulic power steering.

The base 3.4-liter flat six with 350 horsepower is eager and revs freely. The Carrera S, 4S and Targa 4S get a 3.8-liter making 400 horsepower. Transmissions can be a seven-speed gearbox or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic manual, derived from Porsche racecars and called PDK.

With the PDK, the Carrera accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds, the Carrera S in 4.3, Carrera 4 in 4.5 seconds, and 4S in 4.3. Cabriolet models add a couple tenths and Targa models a couple more. The GT3, with its 475-horsepower 3.8-liter engine and racing-tuned PDK transmission, takes just 3.3 seconds.

Even with the supercar performance of the 911 Turbo and Turbo S, they are easy to drive. The 3.8-liter 911 Turbo pumps out 520 horsepower using twin turbochargers, and hits 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds with launch control and standard all-wheel drive. The Turbo S uses its 560 horsepower to hit 2.9 seconds and 198 mph.

Speed-wise for the other models, you’re looking at 179 miles per hour in the base Carrera, 188 mph in the Carrera S, 177 in the Carrera 4, 185 in the 4S, 175 in the Targa 4 and 183 in the Targa 4S. The GT3 goes 195 mph, and laps the Nurburgring in 7 minutes and 30 seconds.

The available Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) has settings from Comfort to Sport Plus. Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) adjusts the car’s roll stiffness using active anti-roll bars.

With the Sport Chrono package comes launch control, which takes a couple tenths off that 0-60 mph time, as well as providing electronic timing. Carbon-ceramic brakes are also available, useful for track days but not the street because they need to be hot to work well.


The Porsche 911 comes in many levels of performance. It’s highly evolved, and easy to drive on the street. We like what the base Carrera offers. Its speed, comfort, handling and iconic looks make it a total package.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
