Drivers considering a 2019 Porsche 911 Carrera are in for a real treat. The reviews are in, and the Carrera once again offers a highly acclaimed range of performance options that still suit the needs of daily commuting around Wilmette, IL.

While the Porsche 911 has over twenty trims, here we look at the most practical of the 911s: the ever-true Carrera. With engines ranging from 370 to 450 horsepower, this subset of 911 models is fast and agile. Each trim level upgrade brings specially engineered suspensions, brakes, wheels, and weight classes—each perfectly configured for specific driving styles.

2019 Porsche 911 Carrera Performance

While the engine specs are similar on most of the Carrera models, additional enhancements add extra horsepower and increasingly agile handling. All 911 Carrera models come standard with manual seven-speed transmission with an optional automatic transmission known as PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplung).


The base 911 Carrera is the entry point to the prestigious Porsche 911 lineup. This model is no stranger to power, with the same engine as its more powerful siblings, a 3.0L six-cylinder twin-turbo boxer engine.

  • Horsepower: 370 hp
  • 0-60: 4.4 s
  • 0-60 with Sports Chrono Package: 4.0 s
  • Top speed: 183

Carrera T

The Carrera T focuses on shedding weight wherever possible to enhance its racing capabilities using the same base engine as the Carrera. To start, it eliminates the rear two seats from the base model and re-configures exterior panels. You'll also find a sport exhaust system and active sport suspension aimed at improving performance. The athletic experience of driving the Carrera T is enhanced with its 10mm lower ride height and reduction of noise-dampening features.

  • Horsepower: 370 hp
  • 0-60: 4.3 s
  • Top speed: 182 mph

Carrera S

Like the T trim, the Carrera S ups the ante when it comes to performance, but this time you'll see a measurable difference in engine specs with a 50 horsepower increase. Add to this 20” wheels, heavier brakes, and a torque-vectoring rear differential, and the Carrera S provides a very different handling experience.

  • Horsepower: 420 hp
  • 0-60: 4.1 s
  • 0-60 with Sport Chrono Package: 3.7 s
  • Top speed: 191 mph

Carrera 4

While the above trims come as rear-wheel drive, the Carrera 4 introduces all-wheel drive on the base Carrera engine and body. This increased stability, even in inclement weather, is worth serious consideration for residents of Wilmette, IL.

  • Horsepower: 370 hp
  • 0-60: 4.3 s
  • 0-60 with Sport Chrono Package: 3.9 s
  • Top speed: 181 mph

Carrera 4S

The Carrera 4S takes the all-wheel drive upgrades of the Carrera 4 and adds 50 more horsepower plus sports-oriented features, like 19” wheels versus the Carrera 4's18”.

  • Horsepower: 420 hp
  • 0-60: 4.0s
  • 0-60 with Sport Chrono Package: 3.6 s
  • Top speed: 189 mph

Carrera GTS

Now we reach the top floor of the 2019 911 Carrera lineup. The GTS trim is the highest performing 911 Carrera that is still manageable as a daily driver when compared to the more track-oriented Turbo and GT models.

  • Horsepower: 450 hp
  • 0-60: 3.9 s
  • 0-60 with Sport Chrono Package: 3.5 s
  • Top speed: 193

The 2019 911 Carrera is available in several body types. While most trim levels offer a small rear with two additional seats, perfect for young passengers while functioning as extra cargo space, the Carrera T eliminates this rear area to achieve a lower weight point.

Most Carrera trims are also available as a cabriolet with a powered convertible top which opens and closes in just 30 seconds. A second style of convertible is available in the Targa, a trim with a retro style split top.

2019 Porsche 911 Carrera Interior

High end cabin materials come standard on all 911 models, including leather seats and soft-touch surfaces everywhere you turn. No expense has been spared on making the 911's interior as decadent as possible, with genuine material trims and exciting color pairings.
