The interior of the 911 is typically brilliantly built, with a stunning yet ergonomic design that features four seats. As usual, the rear seats are barely big enough for children, but they do double as additional storage. Ahead of the steering wheel is a central tachometer that is flanked on either side by a pair of configurable seven-inch TFT screens, while the dash boasts an analog chronograph/digital stopwatch with the included Sport Chrono package. Below that is a stunning 10.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Heated seats are standard for the front and the Turbo S has adaptive front seats with increased adjustment; these offer remarkable support and comfort in equal measure. Everything is in its right place, and a number of buttons and switches help you feel more connected to the car. We love this, especially when newer cars are chucking analog touchpoints in favor of touch-responsive screens and panels instead.
911s are not known as people carriers and that hasn't changed for 2022's model. It's a 2+2, but the rear seats remain small enough to give toddlers anxiety and claustrophobia. The front seats, however, are a different story entirely, with each front occupant getting 14-way power-adjustable and heated front sport seats in the Turbo and 18-way power-adjustable adaptive sport seats in the Turbo S. These seats are perfect for spirited driving and long cruises alike. When you chuck the Turbo S into a corner the bolsters react and hold you in place automatically. It works brilliantly, but those of a particularly large frame may prefer to opt for regular seats instead. Visibility all-round is good, however, and even taller individuals will be comfortable and feel at ease. Naturally, some stooping is required on the way in and out, but the large doors help make this relatively simple.

Leather upholstery is standard in the 911 Turbo, and you can choose from Black, Slate Grey, Graphite Blue, or Bordeaux Red as your no-cost options. Two-tone finishes with Chalk stitching are also available at no charge and include Black/Iceland Green or Black/Mojave Beige, although the latter two options are an additional $430 on the Turbo. Sport-Tex seat centers are also available, but you can spend extra on Club leather in Truffle Brown or Agave Green, with these adding $1,090 to the bill for the Turbo S and $1,520 for the Turbo. An Exclusive Manufaktur leather interior is also available for $11,110 on the Turbo but requires the addition of the adaptive, 18-way powered and ventilated front seats for an additional fee. On the Turbo S, it costs $10,680 and only requires the ventilation to be added, because it already has the 18-way powered seats. As standard, the interior trim comes with Dark Silver Diamer inlays on the Turbo and carbon fiber inlays on the Turbo S, but various wood and aluminum options are available too, and you can extend the impact of the carbon fiber if you desire.
The 911 Turbo is relatively practical, with a 4.5 cubic-foot storage compartment in the front of the car allowing you to do your weekly essential shop, but the rear seats can fold too, opening up an area of 9.3 cubic feet when you choose to travel.
In the cabin, you get a central cupholder and armrest storage as well as a decent glovebox and reasonably sized door pockets. While storage could be better, the focus in a car like this is on performance and feel, and we're happy to sacrifice some practicality in exchange for such a focused and pretty interior.
The 911 Turbo features a number of impressive specs, among which is a rear-axle steering system. It also features the Sport Chrono package with its variable drive modes and launch control as standard, as well as hill start assist, dynamic engine mounts, adaptive LED Matrix headlights, dual-zone climate control, 14-way heated and power-adjustable front sport seats (18-way adaptive sport seats for the Turbo S), parking sensors, a rearview camera, keyless entry and ignition, cruise control, rain-sensing windscreen wipers, and a pair of seven-inch configurable TFT driver info displays. You also get forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking as standard. Options include a sunroof (glass or metal), a full carbon fiber roof, a nose-lifting system, a surround-view camera, a night vision camera, blind-spot monitoring, lane keep assist with traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, ambient lighting, ventilated front seats, and a heated steering wheel.
The infotainment system 911 Turbo is Porsche's latest system, with a 10.9-inch touchscreen display. The system offers compatibility for wireless Apple CarPlay and for the 2022 model year, Android Auto has been added courtesy of the latest version of the infotainment software, though you still need a cable for it. Navigation, SiriusXM satellite radio, voice control, a 4G LTE WiFi hotspot, and an SD card are included too. Two USB ports are included too, and the standard sound system is from Bose. It features 12 speakers but can be upgraded for a Burmester 13-speaker surround sound setup if you're willing to spend a little extra. The system offers attractive graphics, crisp images, and simple menus, making it a good companion for such an advanced vehicle.
