Porsche significantly updated the 911 for the 2017 model year, so little changed for 2018 in terms of equipment and options other than a new (optional) Powerkit that bumps Carrera S and 4S models from 420 horsepower to 450 horsepower — matching the power output of the GTS. All 2018 Porsche 911 models now come with free scheduled maintenance for the first year, which should cover the first oil change. In other news, the automaker expanded the 911 range with three new models: The new 911 Carrera T targets enthusiasts with a lightened chassis and several performance upgrades. The GT3 Touring is a wingless, and manual-transmission-only, version of the track-ready GT3. Lastly, the 911 GT2 RS debuts as a 700-horsepower flagship.
There's a new model, the 911 R, a race-ready limited edition that's an homage to the 1967 911 R. The rest get changes to appearance, but most important is the new family of 3.0-liter turbocharged engines, and standard Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which uses active dampers to improve ride and handling.
