Porsche made a few changes for the 2021 model year. It debuted the Targa body style and made Comfort Access, its keyless entry function, standard on every model. In addition, the optional Premium Package has been revised with more content, the optional front axle lift system now integrates GPS for ease of use (it memorizes the places where it is needed), and there's a new exterior color called Python Green.

Which 911 is the Best?
It's hard not to be impressed with the Porsche 911. The iconic 2-door remains the sports car benchmark that automakers attempt to emulate. Gone are the spartan interior and quirky handling that represented the 911s from decades ago -- the 2021 model is beautifully appointed, safe and effortless to drive. The 2021 Porsche 911 is a great car for anyone who appreciates premium engineering, timeless styling and an engaging driving experience.

How Much Does a 2022 Porsche 911 Cost?
Porsche offers consumers plenty of choices. For starters, there are three different body styles (coupe, Cabriolet and Targa) and three different trim levels (base, S and Turbo), and most of those choices can be mixed and matched. Every 911 arrives with full power accessories, dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery, alloy wheels, multipiston sport brakes and high-performance tires. New for 2021, the automaker has made its Comfort Access keyless entry standard across the entire model range. The standard
Porsche 911 Carrera, with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter engine, has a base price of $99,200. While that squeaks under the psychological barrier of the 6-figure mark, most shoppers spend more than $10,000 on options, which nudges the price well above $100,000. At the other end of the spectrum is the
911 Turbo S Cabriolet, which carries a base price of $216,300. The Turbo S has a larger engine that's complemented by larger brakes, wide tires and a comprehensive list of no-cost upgrades (e.g., an extensive leather interior package). Porsche is known for having one of the most comprehensive -- and extravagant -- options lists in the industry. Common options include the Premium Package, which has been revised to include the Porsche Dynamic Light System, ventilated seats, a surround view system, lane-change assist, power folding mirrors, ambient lighting, a storage package and a Bose surround sound system. The front axle lift option raises the vehicle's nose so that it can clear steep driveways. It's been enhanced with a GPS-based memory system for 2021. Other options include the 930 leather package, which features throwback quilted leather, and the Sport Chrono Package, which features a tire temperature display. For people who want to really express themselves with a customized vehicle, Porsche Exclusive offers exterior paint in every color of the rainbow, climate control vents wrapped in leather and a leather-lined trunk.
Every 2021 Porsche 911 is fitted with a comprehensive list of standard safety equipment that includes 2-stage airbags for driver and front passenger. The Porsche Side Impact Protection system includes side-impact protection elements in the doors and curtain and thorax airbags for both front-seat passengers. Warn and brake assist, which is the Porsche's term for automatic emergency braking, is also standard on every 911. The system is designed to slow the vehicle if there is an obstruction in the way to reduce the severity of a crash. Optional safety equipment includes lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist and adaptive cruise control.
2022 Porsche 911 vs the competition
2021 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT -- Engineered and marketed as a direct competitor to the Porsche 911, the AMG GT falls short in performance and in interior space. While the coupe and convertible are beautifully appointed and offer very powerful engines that make beautiful sounds, they lack the agile and sporty driving dynamics of the Porsche.
2021 Jaguar F-Type R AWD Coupe -- In the traditional British manner, the
Jaguar delivers style and class at the expense of performance. Like the 911, the F-Type is offered with a variety of engines, in coupe and convertible body styles and with a choice between RWD and AWD. It's a fine grand tourer, but anyone seeking race-bred driving dynamics should look elsewhere.
2021 Chevrolet Corvette -- The American automaker debuted its all-new
C8 Corvette last year to well-deserved fanfare. The midengine sports car delivers exemplary performance and precise handling. And its naturally aspirated V8 engine -- a Corvette tradition -- is boisterous and powerful. The 911 might have met a formidable acceleration and handling rival in the new Corvette, but the Porsche still delivers more passenger and cargo space and has a stronger resale value.
Used Porsche 911 -- The 911 has admirable resale value, but it still drops about 20% in the first year after sale. Used Porsche 911s are reliable, safe and just as fun to drive as the new models. Plus, the same amount of money that will buy a new 911 Carrera will purchase slightly used 911 Turbo that's just a few years old.
Used Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 -- Any used Corvette is a deal, but the flagship ZR1 is a bargain on the used market. This range-topping model is the pinnacle of the previous-generation C7 Corvette. It's unbelievably powerful, incredibly agile and nearly without compromise when it comes to sheer performance. While it might be a bit excessive for most people shopping for a basic sports car, true driving enthusiasts will find a used late-model ZR1 without many peers.
