The Porsche 911 992 generation is an iconic sports car that was first introduced in 2019. Keeping the ever-classic rear engine, it's quite the evolution from the 991.2. The new generation is reaching the end of it's lifeline (before the 992.2 likely comes out), meaning most of the range is available. The standard car comes with a 3.0L turbocharged flat-six or the 4.0L twin-turbocharged flat-six engine comes with the GT cars (GT3).  So, let's dive in and start with a quick overvierw of each model.


What's the difference between 992 Models?

992 Carrera T: The bare-bones stripped out model with a 3.0L flat-six, producing 380hp. Released in 2022.

992 Carrera: The baseline model with a 3.0L flat-six, producing 380hp. Only available with a PDK automatic transmission and the first model to launch in 2019. Also available as 4wd with the Carrera 4, and convertible options.

992 Carrera S: As per the above, same body shape and style. Increased to 444hp from the same 3.0L engine. Also available as 4wd with the Carrera 4, and convertible options.

992 Carrera GTS: The top model from the standard range, producing 473hp from the 3.0L block. Centre lock wheels, a few small adjustments from the baseline car. Arguably the sweet spot of the range. Also available as a Targa.

992 Turbo and Turbo S: 4wd, 3.7L engine producing 572hp and 641hp (S) respectfully. Extremely competent car, obscene acceleration (sub 2.5 seconds 0-60mph) and a really special machine. This is also the base for the limited edition sport classic, which was RWD only.

992 GT3: Naturally aspirated 4.0L flat-six engine producing 502 hp, enough to propel it from 0-60 mph just 3.2 seconds. Swan-neck rear wing, centre lock wheels. A little stiff on the road. Also available without the rear with and a slighlty softer version in the GT3 Touring.

992 GT3 RS: Naturally aspirated 4.0L flat six producing 518hp. This is a track car through and through, lapping the 'ring extremely close to the GT3 racing car. Obscene levels of downforce, DRS, fully adjustable (on the fly) suspension and driving dynamics.

992 Dakar: The ultimate beach buggy. Raise 911 designed to monster the dunes. 573hp coming from all four wheels (and a flat 6). 0-60 in 3.4 seconds, limited run. Unlimited excellence.

Release date

The first 992 went on sale in 2019 (Carrera) and since then, the other models have slowly trickled out. It's currently the latest generation of 911, although the 992.2 is expected by the end of 2023/early 2024. It's been expected for a while though, so let's see when it actually gets released...

Price

This is where things get tricky as the price of 911s varies tremendously depending on the market. We've looked at the prices of 992 911s for a mid spec, normal colour (no PTS) which are around 2 years old. It's not perfect, but they've done "normal" mileage. A Carerra around 20k km, GTS 15k and GT3 usually 5-10k. This is accurate as of August 2023, and we'll update each 6 months.

992 Carerra 992 GTS 992 GT3
France 145,000€ 225,000€ 265,000€
Germany 130,000€ 185,000€ 230,000€
Switzerland CHF 135,000 CHF 180,000 CHF 230,000
United Kingdom 100,000£ 130,000£ 210,000£
United States $130,000 $185,000 $265,000

Interior

One of the biggest improvements in comparison to the 991 is the fresh interior. It's a great mix of old and new, with real dials, fairly decent infotainment (inc apple car play) and slimmer seats. There aren't any major watch outs apart from making sure the bolsters on the edge of the seats are in good shape.

Further updates coming soon...
