    • Porsche officially prices the 2017 on 991.2 9A2 3.0 450 hp power kit (X51 option) at 10,139 Euros or $10,800 USD

      We expected a price in the $10k range and that is exactly what Porsche is pricing the 991.2 Carrera S Powerkit at. As you know, the 991.2 GTS models include the Power Kit as standard. What you get is 450 horsepower courtesy of larger turbochargers and new software.


      Additionally, a new brake cooling system along with the PSE (Porsche Sport Exhaust) system and Sport Chrono with dynamic engine mounts are included.

      The kit will be available for retrofit for Carrera S models at Porsche dealers starting in June. What about the Carrera? It is left out because Porsche does not want Carreras stomping S and GTS models.

      PorscheBoost has a feeling that as soon as the part numbers get out there some enterprising base 991.2 owners will figure out a way to do the retrofit themselves without Porsche's blessing.

        $10k will get you a lot of power mods for a base Carrera. It's kinda funny they are charging so much for 30 hp from a turbo engine...it was a little harder to gain the 30hp back when they were NA so MAAAAYYBE you could almost justify the steep price. But turbos with slightly bigger wheels and a different tune and only 30 more hp?
        Sure the Sport chrono/exhaust and brake cooling is worth something but $10k is crazy. No wonder Porsche is the most profitable car company.

        You're not quite understanding. Porsche is giving you a factory turbo upgrade. It's not 30 hp but how much more hp you will get with a tune. They take that into account and know exactly what they are doing.

        How is $10k for sport chrono, the sport exhaust, and larger turbos with a warranty crazy?

        Seems like pretty good value to me. Exhaust, chrono and motor mounts are probably 6k in options alone. If you're planning on going with upgraded turbos factor in another 5k+ if you need them installed. Keeping warranty intact is a nice bonus on $115k car, as well.

        It's a value on this platform.

        FYI, showing up as 12,350 on Porsche's​ configurator. There is some value to be had, but you may as well start with a GTS given is only 3k more after adding that one option.

        Maybe the option and the retrofit are priced differently kind of like the PSE?

        It's hard to purchase a GTS without optioning it a little, which pushes the price to $130K

        130k is a GTS w/o options. A normal driver GTS is 150k minimum. Probably on the low end.

        Well, the base s to the base GTS is about a 17k gap. Factor this in and we're under 5k. I'm sure the GTS has another option or two baked in that narrows it even further. It starts making this a strong case for the GTS and the power kit to only make sense as a dealer installed post-purchase option.

        The kit is a great deal, if you didn't option it right. (Me). It costs over 4K just to retro-fit the PSE on the .2 cars. 6K more for bigger turbos sounds like a deal even in the N54 world.

        ? Ok, have you ever priced out a Porsche? Base is a joke. When you add any normal options your argument left the building.

        Wow, the ‘ol triple response. Boozing up on a Tuesday night much?

        A. You’re wrong.

        Base 911 S - $105,100
        Base GTS – $120,700

        Do you think the GTS is the only car people add options to? People typically compare similarly optioned cars. Their base prices start with a gap of less than $17,000. Factor in that you get PASM, Sport Chrono and the Power Pack standard (~$15,500 in options) before you factor in wide-body, center locks, etc the GTS starts to make a whole lot of sense, but hey, what do I know?

        B. Yes, I’ve priced a Porsche. I read a post from Sticky about two months ago that made the Macan S sound interesting so I walked out my door and drove home in one. I’ll be ordering a 911 S or GTS in the next 12 months or so. Thanks for letting me know what I can and can’t comment on.

        Are you blind or stupid? I'm saying the base prices have a $17,000 price difference. Secondly, if I'm ordering it I can spec a no option car, haggle with the dealer and pay for a 120,700 base car less a few thousand off that price.

        Neither I think, (depends on who you talk to) - I know what the base price is. I like the configurator warriors like you with the hard facts. So yes, you are right, you could order a car with zero options. Like I said, please let us know when you do!

        You guys need to relax.

        He did go pick up a Macan basically instantly.

        I'm sure a GTS can be negotiated down a bit.

        Dude give up, you aren't making sense. It doesn't matter one bit how much normal gts are out the door. Pretty much no one orders a zero option base 911 or S either. He is comparing base to base it is completely valid. If you can't live without a certain option in a GTS you couldn't live without it on an S either...

        There is a little wiggle on the GTS, but not so much right now, and not so much on a base with no options. It really depends on allocation. I am speaking from a SoCal mindset so it may not apply to the ROW.
