Current Model
The 911's unmistakable silhouette and rear-engine layout remain in the 2020 redesign. Both rear- or all-wheel drive are available.
A 379-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine and eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission are standard. Porsche purists will rejoice at the fact that the new 911 still offers a seven-speed manual transmission. Infotainment updates include a 10.9-inch touch screen with Apple CarPlay compatibility. Forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking are standard on the redesigned 911. Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go traffic capability is optional. Previously tested 911s were quick and had sublime handling. The ride wasn't particularly taxing on long trips, thanks to its relatively supple ride and subdued noise levels.

2013-2019
2013 Redesign Year
These models enjoy more power and improved fuel economy, thanks to a displacement increase for the engine. Other enhnacements include a new seven-speed automated manual transmission, along with engine stop-start technology.
The automated manual gives nothing up in performance. The car is still super quick and agile, yet also more civilized than ever. This generation of 911 retains its traditional core values of superlative agility, immediate responses, decisive brake feel, and a bespoke driver-focused cabin. Reasonable visibility, the presence of a rear seat, albeit a very tight one, and a decent sized front trunk make it one of the most practical true sports cars out there. The manual transmission's seven gear ratios seem perfectly distributed, resulting in a fairly calm cruise in top gear - something that was never the case in previous 911s.  Handling remains extremely agile, with instant turn-in response and a body that stays flat and even keeled. Still, the new electrically assisted steering lacks the high-fidelity feedback that's been a Porsche hallmark for literally generations. Yes, it's still quick, linear, precise, and nicely weighted. But it's not the same as the pure unfiltered feedback that's been a source of such special pleasure in this car.

2005-2012
2005 Redesign Year
The 911 has long been considered one of the world's most desirable sports cars. We tested a 2005 911 Carrera S and found it a gas to drive, with pinpoint steering and rock-solid body control.
Handling is extremely precise and agile, and the ride is relatively supple. Braking is phenomenal. Rear seats, a reasonable trunk, and good visibility are added bonuses in a sports car. In later years, Porsche bumped the power a bit and added a seven-speed sequential transmission. The 2013 redesign brought more power and improved fuel economy to the 911 line. Even with an automatic transmission, the car gives up nothing in performance. With it, the 911 is still super quick and agile, yet also more civilized than ever.

1999-2004
The 911 has been considered among the world's most desirable sports cars. A 1999 redesign brought an all-new platform and a water-cooled engine.
The cabin offers room for tall drivers and good outward visibility. The Porsche offers rear- and all-wheel-drive coupes, a convertible, and a Targa model with an electrically-operated sliding glass roof. Exceptionally powerful AWD Turbo versions were also available in some model years.
