What's New for 2021?

These include the interior-sprucing 930 Leather package and the lightweight insulated glass, which lightens the vehicle and lowers noise.

Additionally, Porsche adds programmable GPS functionality to the 2021 911's optional front-axle lift system, which understands when to elevate the nose at particular areas.

The 3.0 liter flat-six twin-turbo engine for the 911 Carrera is located at the back of the vehicle. The S variant produces 443 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque,

All Carreras come with an insanely quick-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission, but S variants also come with a beautiful seven-speed manual. 

Rear-wheel drive is the default on both the base and S models, but all-wheel drive is an option for four-season, high-performance driving.

Comparing the 992 generation to the earlier versions, the EPA estimates declined substantially. Start with the automatics first: Rear-drive 911s both All-wheel drive, Carrera, and Carrera S.

The Carrera 4 is rated at 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway (including the convertible models). With the more potent Carrera 4S, the ratings are 18 for the city and 23 for the highway.

The 2021 Porsche 911's interior features a combination of buttons, knobs, and touch-screen controls as well as—for the first time ever—a sizable central cupholder

The gauge cluster also departs from tradition by substituting a majority of digital instruments for an analog instrumentation.

The center tachometer still employs a tactile needle that tracks the engine's revs as it approaches its wonderful 7500-rpm redline

despite the fact that these screens have some user-experience concerns and can be blocked by the steering wheel.

While wireless Apple CarPlay and a Wi-Fi hotspot are supported by the infotainment system, Android Auto is not available. 

Porsche does offer two top-of-the-line surround sound systems, one with 12 speakers and the other with 13.

 The center screen has rotary push-button controls on the console in addition to voice instructions and buttons on the steering wheel.

The initial maintenance appointment is free of charge, and Porsche's warranty coverage is typical for the market.
