Everything to Know About the 2021 Line of Porsches


As a manufacturer with such a prestigious history of beautiful, high-performing vehicles, it’s not surprising that everybody gets excited when Porsche announces a new line of models. But what does this line entail? 

Firstly, the announcement of the 2021 line was always going to generate excitement. Over the last decade, the Porsche brand has gone from strength to strength in terms of sales. In 2022, the manufacturer will bring an EV Macan while also offering electric versions of the Cayman and the 718 Boxster. According to rumors, even the world-famous 911 won’t escape the electric wave. By 2023, the model could have a battery assist, whether this is a hybrid model or something similar. 

However, let’s stop getting ahead of ourselves; this guide is all about 2021. This year, the Cayman GT4 will lend its naturally aspirated engine to the Boxster GTS 4.0 and the Cayman GTS 4.0. It’s interesting to see all GTS models getting this naturally aspirated flat-six engine, and it’s a big step forward for the manufacturer. 

Elsewhere, Porsche welcomed the 911 Turbo S earlier in the year. According to the manufacturer, the model offers 640 horsepower, a twin-turbo, and 590 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the standard Turbo edition has slightly less power at just over 570 horsepower. 

As we near the end of 2021, Porsche will reveal the redesign of the 911 GT3. What’s more, look back to earlier in the year, and you’ll find the reveal of the Porsche Taycan 4 Cross Turismo. With both a Cross Turismo and a Sports Saloon edition, owners will enjoy a top speed of 137mph, acceleration of 0-62 in just over five seconds, and a sleek shape that somehow reflects the storied history of Porsche while also representing the modern class of vehicles. 

In terms of the Panamera, you’ll notice a brand-new 325 horsepower, 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 model (while also noticing that the older 3.0-liter single turbo has gone). What’s more, a new twin-turbo V8 GTS has arrived with 20 horsepower more than its predecessor. Also, just in case this wasn’t enough, there’s a 227-horsepower electric Panamera 4S E-Hybrid that also boasts a twin-turbo V6 (2.9-liter) to make 553 lb-ft of torque and a similar horsepower. 

Fan of Porsche SUVs

If you’re a fan of Porsche SUVs, you’ll need to wait until 2022 for the Macan EV (sorry!). For those in the United States, the wait is even longer since models leaving the German factory in spring will likely fulfill European demand first. 

With all this in mind, it isn’t easy to know where to put your attention with Porsche in 2021. After the global pandemic, the manufacturer is playing catch-up, which means many changes to its beloved models. Even the Porsche 718 is receiving plenty of new equipment. This includes: 

  • Dual-zone climate control 
  • Adaptive bi-xenon headlights 
  • Heated seats 
  • Apple CarPlay integration 
  • Side and rear auto-dimming mirrors 

What’s more, those seeking something daring with the color will appreciate the Python Green paint. 

If you can’t decide between convertible and coupe, the 911 Targa provides a superb solution. With 2020 welcoming the new generation of the 911, it’s natural that the popular variations, like the Targa, will follow in the months and years ahead. 

There you have it, everything you need to know about the 2021 line of Porsches. Will you dip into the 2021 line or perhaps wait for more electric and hybrid models to release in 2022 and beyond?
