Configuration of the day: Porsche 911


Today, we are attacking a myth! The Porsche 911 passes through the hands of our editors to draw their preferred configurations.

Let's start with Jean-Baptiste.

“The Porsche 911 is for me the ultimate chameleon car. From a wise Carrera to a demonic GT2 RS to the thousand other different versions, you can really find the 911 that meets your needs. ”

“At the moment, the range of the 911 – 992 is quite limited. The Targa versions (my favorites!) Not being presented yet, I started on a “short” Carrera to make a 911 really typed “Grand Touring”. After all, we still have 385 hp on the rear overhang! ”

“A cool config, then. I opt for a very pretty Midnight Blue paired with the beautiful Carrera Exclusive Design diamond rims. The roof becomes glazed, a chrome rod runs through the side windows, the 911 logo reduced to its simple expression, even the glazing is soundproofed: relax, I tell you! The only deviation from the rules: I opted for the sports exhaust system … ”

“The watchword for the passenger compartment: light! Thanks to the glass roof of course, but also thanks to the all-leather upholstery in Slate Gray / Chalk and the aluminum finish of the dashboard. No Sport Chrono Pack, not very useful for my use, but on the contrary a 360 ° vision, a blind spot alert and a lane keeping. And to close this 100% comfort config, I selected the Burmeister sound system. In total, more than € 30,000 in options! ”

Pierre gives us his 911:

“Difficult to compete with Jean-Baptiste's configuration, I would sign immediately! I also went on a simple 911 because it is probably the perfect car: GT for everyday and sporty on demand with enough power to have fun but not too much either for frustration at not being able to use the cavalry.

Mine will be carmine red on 21 inch rims. The Sport Design pack will be there: it changes the side jutes and above all minimizes the gaping black mouth from the front. A real plus. Let's stay sport with the exhaust of the same name: the quadruple outlet is of the most beautiful effect and the sound of the flat 6 will be less muffled by the turbos. Yes, we don't see it on the photo, it's a shame …

The interior will be all two-tone leather, burgundy, exterior and black recall, plus more sobriety. I also take the aluminum finish and the adaptive sports seats. Coquetry: the counter and the tachometer with yellow background, a contrast that will make my car a unique model (and unsaleable in second hand but we are not there for that!)

A few badges on the headrests, an all-leather sport steering wheel and the essential maneuvering aids complete the equipment. 37,000 € of options, Porsche keeps its reputation on this point but what to face a myth? ”

Ancelin in turn presents its choices to you:

Like my two friends, I too chose to configure a simple 911 Carrera, whose base price reached more than € 108,000, all the same. I wanted to configure my 911 in an exotic and retro way, and I think the result is there!

This superb Python green is billed at € 2,736. If I could, I would even go to the “Porsche Exclusive” catalog to find a mint green. You will understand, I love green Porsches! The rims also breathe classicism and evoke if we look from very very very far the legendary Fuchs. I hesitated for a long time but finally checked the box “Sport Design Pack” in body color, which lightens the rear too massive original. Finally, I take the liberty of adding the double sport exhaust pipes rather than taking the complete system to the ovoid exits, not much for my taste.

It’s inside that the “retro” experience takes on its full meaning thanks to all-brown Truffle leather upholstery and wooden inlays. Then, I mix the choices of Jean-Baptiste en Pierre by choosing my tachometer background in white and checking the Sport Chrono Pack option, essential in my opinion as soon as you configure a 911!

It's your turn ! Tell us which 911 you would leave with. Or, better yet, let us discover your ideal 911! The configurator is right here. See you soon for a new config ’ 🙂
