Time to create your very own 911 dream car.
Just after debuting the all new 992-generation of its venerable sports car, Porsche has already opened up the configurator for the new 911 online. With an extensive options list and many options for customization, the configurator is extensive, allowing you to create your own unique 911 while jacking the prices up into the upper-$100,000 range. By checking off all of the most expensive options, you can get the 911 Carrera 4S, which starts at $120,600, over the $190,000 mark. We have created a few configurations to display the options available on the new 911.
Painted in Carmine Red, which costs a mind-blowing $3270, this Carrera 4S costs $166,960. While we stuck with the stock wheels for this version, they were painted in what Porsche calls "Satin Aurum" for an additional $1290, giving the rims a gold hue. Other exterior upgrades included SportDesign side skirts for $1290, and the Porsche writing on the rear end painted in high gloss black for an addition $300. Inside, a whopping $4260 brings the black and Bordeau Red leather interior, with a Porsche crest emblazoned on the headrests for $290 and the center console lid inscribed with "Carrera" for $340. A heated Multifunction GT sport steering wheel wrapped in Alcantara adds $800, while Paldao wood for the interior trim boosts the price another $1900.
Performance upgrades are also pricey. We added Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control for $3170, which also forces you to purchase rear axle steering for $2090. Porsche Active Suspension Management tacks on $1020 and the Sport Chrono package, which brings launch control, is $2720. The most expensive addition, however, are the ceramic composite brakes for a grand total of $8,970. The sharp LED-Matrix Design headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus is an extra $3,270, and safety features like Adaptive Cruise Control and Night Vision Assist go for $2,000 and $2,540, respectively. We also threw in a Burmester surround sound stereo for $5,560.
We went for a slightly sportier vibe on the Lava Red example, a paint option that also costs $3270. We opted for the RS Spyder Design wheels, which go for $2,540, and the Sport Package, which includes the Sport Chrono package and Porsche Active Suspension Management, for $5,460. Other differences with the Carmine Red spec include a fire extinguisher at $180 for emergencies on a track day, and seat belts in Racing Yellow ($540) for a bit of extra flair. Instead of the wood interior trim, we went for the carbon fiber option, which totals $2100. In all, this sportier Carrera 4S topped out at $160,770.
In an attempt to be thrifty, we also attempted to spec a 911 while keeping the price below $120,000. Starting with the base Carrera S at $113,300, we added the Carrera Classic wheels for $1250 and got the side window trim in aluminum for $400. The Racing Yellow paint job came at no cost. Power-folding side view mirrors were $370, and the heated steering wheel added $280. We also added Porsche Active Suspension Management and Adaptive Cruise Control, and finished up with a colored Porsche crest on the wheel center caps for just $190. This left us at a total of $119,860, leaving a $140 to spare.
One interesting option to note is that if you leave the stock Carrera S wheels, you can spec them in the same color as the rest of the interior. This can lead to some pretty hideous abominations, such as the Lizard Green monster you see below. Take a look for yourself on Porsche's website.
