Entry-level Porsche Carrera to cost from £82.8K

New variant up to £10,000 cheaper than Carrera S.

Would you like to stay up to date with the latest from The Car Expert?

Porsche is adding an entry-level Carrera model to its current 911 line-up with prices starting at £82,793.

The new Carrera variant joins the range at up to £10,000 cheaper than the current S model. It will be available in either hardtop or Cabriolet layouts, the latter starting from £92,438.

Carrera variants are powered by the same 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder engine mounted in the Carrera S models, but with 385hp rather than the 450hp put out by the more powerful stablemates. It is mated to Porsche’s PDK automatic transmission, though we understand that a manual transmission is a future possibility.

Porsche quotes a 0-62mph time for the Carrera of four seconds – just half a second slower than the previous Carrera S. An optional Sport Chrono package will shave around two tenths of a second off the time. Maximum speed is 182mph.

The Carrera is said to return between 26.2mpg and 28.5mpg, depending on specification. The car boasts the same suite of driver modes as the Carrera S.

Other changes compared to the Carrera S include slightly smaller brakes and wheels. However, the cabin replicates that of the Carrera S, including an 11-inch touchscreen infotainment display.
