Impressive Engine Specs

The 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera delivers varying levels of horsepower and torque, depending on the model you choose:

  • The Carrera, Carrera 4, and Targa 4 come equipped with a 3.4L flat-6 engine, which produces a whopping 350 hp and 287 lb-ft of torque.
  • Meanwhile, the S and 4S configurations boast a 3.8L flat-6 engine rated at 400 hp (430 hp with the available Carrera S Powerkit) and 325 lb-ft of torque.
  • The two Carrera GTS models sport a 430-hp 3.8L 6-cylinder engine, while the GT3 and GT3 RS feature a 475-hp 3.8L 6-cylinder engine and 500 hp 4.0L flat-6 engine, respectively.
  • The powerhouses of the 911 Carrera family, the four Turbo variants house a turbocharged 3.8L 6-cylinder engine rated from 520 to 560 hp, and from 487 to 516 lb-ft of torque.

On-Point Handling Technology

With so much power under the hood, the 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera relies on cutting-edge technologies to harness its engines’ performance capabilities. Featuring lightning-fast gear changes, the 7-speed automated manual Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission is optional on the base, S, and GTS configurations, and standard on all others. At the front of the 911 Carrera, active intake air flaps work to boost fuel efficiency, while the sport exhaust system emits a classic sports car growl, thanks to two catalytic converters, a rear silencer, and two central tailpipes. All the while, the coasting and Auto Start/Stop Function bolster fuel economy by decoupling the engine from the transmission, which avoids fuel-burning engine deceleration.
