Porsche's infotainment system, Porsche Communication Management (PCM 3.1) is standard on all 911s, and includes audio, navigation, and phone-integration functions. A large 7-inch touchscreen handles commands, though a rotary pushbutton interface is also fitted. The standard audio system handles radio, DVD audio, CDs, and MP3s, with an available upgrade to a six-disc CD/DVD changer. The navigation is hard drive-based, with maps in 2D and 3D perspectives.
Opt for the upgraded Burmester surround-sound system and you'll get not just 12 channels pumping a total of 821 watts, including a 300-watt subwoofer, you'll get Air Motion Transformer tweeters and some of the best sound we've heard in a car. A Bose system is also available, though we'd pick the Burmester.
Keyless entry, USB, iPod interface, Bluetooth, and automatic two-zone climate control are also standard. A sliding/tilting sunroof is also available, as is the ParkAssist system with front and rear parking sensors and an overhead display of nearby obstacles.
Many more individual options are also available, though if you get too wild with the add-ons, the bottom line will quickly grow far beyond the $82,100 (Carrera) and $96,400 (Carrera S) base prices.
