For the 2009 model year the maximum output of the 911 Carrera with its 3.6-liter engine was raised by 20 horsepower to 345.

2009 also sees the introduction of Porsche-Doppelkupplung (PDK), Porsche's double-clutch gearbox. The seven speed gearbox combines the driving comfort of an automatic transmission with the gearshift capacity of a sequential gearbox used in race cars. Since Porsche's double-clutch also boasts an automatic gearshift function, it replaces the former Porsche Tiptronic S automatic transmission on both the Carrera and Carrera S. PDK improves acceleration while reducing fuel consumption over the previous generation of Tiptronic S equipped 911s through optimized and adaptive gearshifts.

Developed for Group C racing over 25 years ago, the PDK system features two parallel clutches to eliminate any interruption in power delivery and eliminates even the slightest break between gears.

The Carrera equipped with PDK covers 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds. There is also the option to combine PDK with Porsche's optional Sport Chrono Plus including Launch Control. The result is high-speed acceleration free of wheel spin from a standstill and a racing shift pattern to further boost performance. The Carrera equipped with the Sport Chrono Plus accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds.

The latest Porsche Communication Management system, PCM 3.0, which includes a new touchscreen feature, is standard on all 2009 and on 911s. Along with this upgraded system, options such as a hard disk drive navigation system, XM radio with XM NavTraffic capability, Bluetooth connectivity, iPOD port, USB port, and aux jack will be available
