The 2008 Porsche 911 may be an incredible sportscar, but it also comes standard with a lengthy list of luxury features.

For those who demand even more luxury and personalization, Edmunds reviewers note, "Porsche offers up a dizzying array of expensive options."

While the standard features are not the same on all the various models of the 2008 Porsche 911, even the most basic Porsche 911 Carrera comes well equipped off of dealer lots. ConsumerGuide says that all 911 Porsches come with standard "air conditioning w/automatic climate control" and "tilt/telescopic leather-wrapped steering wheel," along with "cruise control, partial leather upholstery," and full power accessories.

Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com also rave about the sound system, and ForbesAutos writes "the latest sound system really makes the best of the 911's tight cabin with nine well-placed speakers." An upgraded "Bose sound system" is standard on the Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo, according to ConsumerGuide.

Aside from the long list of standard goodies, the 911 Porsche boasts an extended roster of optional features. Edmunds writes that those options include "custom color schemes, different seats, upgraded stereos, custom leather trims and a choice of wood, aluminum and carbon-fiber accents." ConsumerGuide reviewers also mention that the 2008 911 Porsche Carrera Turbo comes with standard "full-leather upholstery." Other noteworthy features on the Porsche 911 include Porsche's Adaptive Sport Seats, which ForbesAutos says "improve both lateral support and overall comfort so much that they are worth it if you plan to spend a lot of time behind the wheel."

Edmunds reports that "a navigation system and a Sport Chrono package" are available, and "in addition to supplying lap times and records, the Sport Chrono option also remaps the electronic throttle for quicker response."

Conclusion

From an available navigation system and Bose stereo to standard leather and automatic climate control, the 2008 Porsche 911 offers it all.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
