The redesigned 911 stays with basically the same iconic shape, while delivering more power and better fuel economy. 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.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

"The PDK transmission and the non-turbo engine with the Sports Exhaust are a great combination. Too bad the 2017s are all Turbos."

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"Well, the Porsche 991S is a beautiful example of a sports car, but when you buy a Porsche, it's "ala cart" and very few items are included. This is a major drawback when buying a Porsche. It's disappointing that, for the price you pay, you must choose among a host of items embedded in complex expensive options--much like signing up with, say, Comcast; i.e., bundling of services and products--Yuke!"

Anonymous, FL (2013 Porsche 911)

"I have never owned a car that received more compliments! Whether I am at a back road gas station, a restaurant, or grocery store people come up and say they admire the car. The styling of the convertible, with a top that blends into the lines of the car just as if it were a coupe, is wonderful."

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
