What's New For 2018?
There are quite a few exciting updates to report on the 2018 Porsche 911. The Carrera T model is new to the line-up and functions as a lower and ultimately more lightweight version of the Carrera, built for speed. In addition to numerous tweaks to packages and a new Chalk body color, there is now a full year of complimentary scheduled maintenance on every single 2018 Porsche model.
The Porsche 911 is a small sports car that can come with rear- or all-wheel drive. You can get the 911 as a coupe or cabriolet.
There are multiple trims available for both the Coupe and Cabriolet. The Carrera models are coupes equipped with rear-wheel drive and a 3.0-L twin turbo flat-six engine paired with a 7-speed manual gearbox or PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission. The Carrera 4 (as with any other vehicle in the line-up assigned a 4 in its name) features all-wheel drive. The S models feature a more powerful 3.0-L engine capable of generating 420 hp and 368 lb-ft of torque. Their brakes are bigger, as are their 20-inch wheels. All of the Cabriolet models feature a folding soft-top that is electrically powered while the Targa models have a hard roof panel. All GTS trims are powered with an upgraded version of the S's engine and get 450 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque. The Turbo and Turbo S trims are even more powerful, with the Turbo S getting 580 hp and featuring a stunning two-toned leather interior design. The line-topping GT3 trims are coupes that each come with a 4.0-L flat-6 that generates 500 h and 339 lb-ft of torque.
The 2018 Porsche 911 is truly a stand-out vehicle in terms of performance. The dual-clutch provides some of the smoothest shifts between gears that you will find in any car, period. Turbo lag is basically not detectable, and the 911 can get from 0 to 60 mph in an astonishing 3.4 seconds. Additionally, the braking abilities on the 911 are superb, and the vehicle can make a panic stop from 60 mph in only 96 feet, which is tough for any vehicle to best. Although the driver might not feel connected with the steering all of the time, the vehicle provides enough feedback and responds quickly. Handling is basically flawless, as there is no body roll, and the 911 can be pushed really hard to make turns. Overall, you will be hard-pressed to find a more enjoyable and exciting driving experience in a car this year.
EPA numbers are relatively decent for the 2018 Porsche 911. Depending on what you get, these numbers will fluctuate a bit. The automatics tend to hover in the 20-22 mpg city/26-28 mpg highway range while the manuals predictably fall shorter when doing city driving, ranging between 18-20 mpg city/26-28 mpg highway.
The 2018 Porsche 911 is, if you have the cash to shell out, the sports car to buy for the model year. It is bound to impress many drivers and their friends and makes it worthy of a test drive.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Porsche 911 invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Porsche 911 MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
