The Carrera and Carrera S models may be the lowliest of the Porsche 911 family, but even junior excellence is excellence nonetheless. Powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter flat six engine, the Carrera boasts 370hp, while the Carrera S ups that figure to 420hp. Rear wheel drive is standard, though Carrera 4 and 4S models get all-wheel drive. All models get the option of manual or automatic transmissions – both utilizing 7 gears. The worthwhile Sport Chrono Package adds an analog chronograph, launch control, Sport mode functionality, and active engine mounts. Safety features available include blind spot monitoring, and autonomous braking.
