There is a 911 for everybody: coupe, convertible, or targa. The first option is the Carrera which can be had in either the three body styles and powered by a 3.6 flat six that can be had with either 321hp (2005 to June 2007 models) or 325hp (July 2007 and later) which is one impressive engine. Next is the Carrera 4 and 4S which carries the 3.8 flat six carrying 355hp and comes with standard AWD. You can only order this with both coupe and convertible models.
Choose the Turbo that pumps out 480hp from its 3.6 flat six which can be had with the coupe version and call it a day. The lower brethren is already special, the turbo is a momentous event.
There exists a 415hp GT3 and GT3 RS which is earth shattering but best left driven on the closed track.
Buying a 911 means you have enough cash to keep this and you should not complain. Both manual and automatic variants are available for all variants save the GT3.
