Yes, the 2023 Porsche 911 will be available in fall 2023, per Edmunds. The new 911 continues the eighth generation – designated as the 992 – that was introduced for 2020.

There are 11 total trim levels for the 911: the Carrera, Carrera S, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa 4, Targa 4S, GTS, Sport Classic, Turbo, Turbo S, and GT3. Three of those trims – the Carrera, GTS, and Turbo models are also offered in convertible options. Edmunds notes this is based on the 2022 911’s trims and the new 911 may have more announced later on.

2023 Porsche 911 specifications

There are multiple powertrains across the 11 trims for the new 911. The Carrera, Carrera 4, and Targa 4 are all powered by a 3.0-liter flat six-cylinder engine producing 379 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, the Carrera is rear-wheel drive and the Carrera 4 and Targa 4 are all-wheel drive.

The Carrera S, Carrera 4S, and Targa 4S all get a tune-up in power with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six pushing out 443 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, Carrera S is rear-wheel drive and the Carrera 4S and Targa 4S are all-wheel drive.

The GTS’s 3.0-liter flat-six is twin-turbocharged as well but gets a bump up in power to 473 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. You can get this 2023 Porsche 911 trim in coupe, convertible, or Targa styles.

New for 2023 is the Sport Classic trim. The new 911 trim comes with a 3.8-liter flat-six that produces 543 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. It is specifically rear-wheel drive with a manual transmission only.

The 2023 911 Turbo has a 3.8-liter flat-six as well but it is twin-turbocharged to 572 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel drive and an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission are both standard. The Turbo S tops out all trims in power with 640 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque from a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six. The final trim – the GT3 – has a 4.0-liter flat-six providing 502 horsepower and 346 lb-ft of torque.

2023 Porsche 911 features

There are lots of Porsche 911 features that come standard. Adaptive suspension, heated sport seats, a 10.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, keyless entry, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto (via cable), cruise control, and a rear-view camera are standard on all models. As are driver aids like emergency braking assist, forward collision mitigation, and four-wheel ABS.

As you go up the trim levels, more features are included. The Carrera, Carrera 4S, and Targa 4S come with larger brakes, the Sport Chrono package (which includes launch control, active suspension mounts, and the Porsche Track precision app), and an electronic torque-vectoring differential for improved traction.

The GTS gets even larger brakes to handle the increased power. The Sport Chrono package and sports seats are standard as well. The Sport Classic gets special bodywork and graphics. Moving up to the Turbo trim means a Bose audio system and rear-axle steering is standard. The Turbo S gets upgraded aerodynamics, suspension, and carbon-ceramic brakes. 

The GT3 trim is more track-focused than other trims and gets performance tires, race-inspired suspension, and unique aerodynamics as well.

How much does a 2023 Porsche 911 cost?

Edmunds estimates the base Carrera will start at around $105,000. The most expensive Porsche 911 model for the year – the 911 Sport Classic – starts at $272,300, per Porsche. That is quite a range for one car but there are plenty of trims to choose from within that. Here’s a breakdown of pricing, using 2022 MSRP figures from Porsche:

  • Carrera ($106,100), Carrera Cabriolet ($118,900), Carrera 4 ($113,400), Carrera 4 Cabriolet ($126,200)
  • Carrera S ($123,000), Carrera S Cabriolet ($135,800), Carrera 4S ($130,300), Carrera 4S Cabriolet ($143,100)
  • Targa 4 ($126,200), Targa 4S ($143,100)
  • GTS ($142,600), GTS Cabriolet ($155,400)
  • GT3 ($169,700)
  • Turbo ($182,900), Turbo Cabriolet ($195,700), Turbo S ($216,100), Turbo S Cabriolet ($228,900)
  • Sport Classic ($272,300)

The new 911 is one of the more expensive sports coupes. Competitors like the Jaguar F-Type and Chevrolet Corvette have a much lower starting price. But Edmunds reviewers call the driving experience impeccable. The handling and steering response “urge you to drive it harder and faster” and with plenty of trims available, there’s one built for most any driver.
