The 911's unmistakable silhouette and rear-engine layout remain in the 2020 redesign. Both rear- or all-wheel drive are available. A 379-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine and eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission are standard. Porsche purists will rejoice at the fact that the new 911 still offers a seven-speed manual transmission, but only in the Carrera S.
