The performance package isn't just a simple engine tune. The kit includes larger turbochargers, the Sport Chrono package with dynamic engine mounts, a modified brake cooling system, and a sport exhaust system with two central tailpipes. It's expected to cost about $12,350 in the United States. The kit is available for all new 911 Carrera S, 911 Carrera 4S, and 911 Targa 4S models.
The other new 2018 model year improvements benefit the entire Porsche product line. Porsche is making the full suite of Porsche Connect services available to any car that already has the service. Currently, only the Panamera has full and complete access to all that Porsche Connect offers. The upgrade is offered free of charge, but depending on the model the process may require a visit to the dealer. Cars that left the factory before June 2016 will require an update, while those released after that should be ready to go.
The new service includes in-car WiFi with LTE access and, for customers in China and Japan, an enhanced concierge service. Customers will be able to book flights, rental cars, hotel rooms, and make restaurant reservations with saved credit card data. Once booked, the addresses will be added to the navigation system. The Connect Plus service is standard in the 911 and Panamera and is an option on all other Porsches.
Finally, 2018 brings a number of new interior and exterior colors. Certain colors are reserved for certain models, but with enough money we're sure Porsche could make an exception. Saffron Yellow Metallic is an exclusive 911 color while Palladium Metallic can only be found on the Cayenne. Photos aren't yet available, but look for some pretty new pictures soon.
