Porsche recently published definitive information on the features and pricing tiers of the 2022 911.
Receiving top billing in the announcement? The new 911 GT3, the newest 992-gen variant. The base sticker of the performance car is $161,100 in the U.S. That puts it high on the roster dollar-wise, but not at the top. Coming in as priciest is the 2022 Turbo S Cabriolet, which begins at $219,800. At the entry level is the 911 Carrera, which can be had from $101,200 and up.
Porsche also took the opportunity to discuss the connectivity tech which will be added to the series from top to bottom. The newest version of PCM—‘Porsche Communication Management’—is controlled via a 10.9-inch touchscreen display that neatly combines all the essentials: communications, comfort and entertainment, and navigation. It can be personalized for on-the-fly adjustments. A Remote ParkAssist, Active Parking Support, 3D Surround View and Rear Cross Traffic Alert with Lane Change Assist can be optioned as a package for cars with PDK.
To sweeten the deal, the trial period for Porsche’s connected services has been dramatically increased from the outgoing model year’s 12 months to 36. Subscription options follow the trial period, allowing continued access to Voice Pilot, Navigation Plus, Calendar, Radio Plus. Apple CarPlay will continue to be available in 2022, but Android Auto is the new kid on the block.
