Porsche 911 Overview

The 911's iconic shape hides a thoroughly modern sports car, delivering performance and relative civility. The base model gets a 350-hp, 3.4-liter six, while the Carrera S uses a 400-hp, 3.8-liter six, both matched with a seven-speed manual. Measures to help with fuel efficiency include shut-off at idle and electric power steering. The 911 is quick, super agile, sounds terrific, and the automated manual gives nothing up to the stick shift. The car is now less taxing on a long trip, with a somewhat more supple ride and better sound deadening. Reliability has been below average.
