As you might expect with an $80,000-and-up price tag, the 2013 Porsche 911 is well-equipped in all forms. If you'd like to make your 911 special, however, there are plenty of optional extras--for a price.
For 2013, Porsche adds a new adaptive cruise control system for PDK-equipped models, front-end collision avoidance, and a panoramic sliding glass sunroof.
Standard equipment includes Porsche's infotainment system, known as Porsche Communication Management, which combines audio, navigation, and phone-integration functions; a seven-inch touchscreen interface; DVD/CD/MP3 audio; and more. The standard stereo can be upgraded with a six-disc CD/DVD changer, and there are, of course, many available variations on hue, material, and other interior options.A Burmester surround-sound system is available as an upgrade, and it sounds fantastic. With the Burmester, 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.
