The Porsche 911 is a beloved coupe and convertible long known for its sleek styling and sports-like performance. Does this model have all-wheel-drive as an option, or does it just have standard front-wheel-drive like most vehicles? Learn about its drivetrain options when you visit Porsche Nashua.

Available Drivetrains 

Unlike most cars, the Porsche 911 does not have a front-wheel-drive variant that comes standard. Instead, it comes with rear-wheel-drive, with all-wheel-drive available as an optional upgrade. With this comes high-level performance in terms of handling and cornering, as all-wheel-drive allows power to be evenly distributed across all four wheels. 

Body Styles 

All-wheel-drive is available for the Porsche 911 model’s three body styles (coupe, convertible, and a semi-convertible variant where a portion of the roof can be removed). A GTS trim is available for all three body styles. One important note is that with the semi-convertible body style, all-wheel-drive is the only drivetrain option. 

Under the Hood 

The Porsche 911 is powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, though a seven-speed manual transmission is available. This produces 379 hp in the base Carrera trim and 443 hp in the S trim. 

As a sports car, the Porsche 911 handles incredibly well in either the rear- or all-wheel-drive. Its acceleration is smooth, and its use of the optional sport exhaust system provides an incredible engine roar. Cornering is also made simple with the tires providing robust grip for stability.
