New Porsche 911 2020 pricing and specs detailed: Iconic sports car now costs up to $11,900 more to buy

The Porsche 911 has just received a MY21 update.

Porsche Australia has increased the pricing of most variants of its iconic 911 sports car as part of a minor MY21 update.

The flagship Turbo S coupe ($473,900 plus on-road costs) and Cabriolet ($494,900) are the only versions that cost the same as before, with their first deliveries due in the second half of this year.

Conversely, the entry-level Carrera coupe is up $7200, to $236,700, while its Cabriolet counterpart has jumped $7600, to $258,600.

The upgrade from rear-wheel drive to all-wheel drive is now costlier, with the Carrera 4 coupe up $8300, to $253,900, and its Cabriolet sibling jumping $8700, to $275,800.

For reference, the Carrera and Carrera 4 versions are motivated by a 283kW/440Nm 3.0-litre twin-turbo flat six-cylinder petrol engine and mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Upgrading to the 331kW/550Nm unit used by the Carrera S and Carrera 4S variants now commands even larger premiums, with the former up $10,400 and $10,800 in coupe and Cabriolet form, to $275,000 and $296,900 respectively.

Meanwhile, the latter has jumped $11,500 and $11,900 in coupe and Cabriolet guise, to $292,200 and $314,100 respectively (see full pricing table).

When the Turbo S versions arrive, they will be powered by a 478kW/800Nm variant of the aforementioned engine, while AWD will be standard.

Buyers are compensated for their extra spend, with a Porsche Australia spokesperson telling CarsGuide the 911 ’s standard specification now includes LED main headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus), power-folding side mirrors and surround-view cameras.
