The rear-engined 911 has always been known for its potent acceleration, razor-sharp handling, and precise, tactile feel. The current model delivers a near-ideal balance of performance and livability. With its immediate throttle and steering responses, the 911 is as at home on a twisty, two-lane road as on a demanding race track. Yet, it's also quite driver-friendly and easy to live with on a daily basis.

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

"Amazing vehicle in every aspect of driving experience and quality"

Anonymous, TX (2017 Porsche 911)

"Both acceleration and handling are awesome"

Anonymous, AB (2017 Porsche 911)

"Tremendous acceleration and handling"

Gary O., FL (2017 Porsche 911)

"The new turbo engine is amazing. Without getting into the numbers, it just feels quick, smooth and powerful, making for a great driving experience.."

Anonymous, TX (2017 Porsche 911)

"Acceleration and handling is superior to almost all performance cars. The ride is very comfortable for a sports car let alone one of this extreme capability. It's a bargain at $200,000."

Larry F., NM (2017 Porsche 911)

"The Porsche driving experience is unparalleled. The car can behave as tame as a kitten or roar like a tiger. It is perfectly engineered. Point it where you want to go and it goes. Yes, acceleration is invigorating but quick stopping and nimble handling adds to accident avoidance. I do not ever want to be without a Porsche 911 S."

Stephen P., VA (2017 Porsche 911)

"The Porsche handles and accelerates exceptionally well. You can take control in any traffic situation. It's extremely sure-footed. The only way to get faster acceleration is to spend a lot more money. I don't think you can get better handling at any price."

David H., IL (2017 Porsche 911)

"This vehicle is in a class by itself when it comes to driving enjoyment. It is easy to drive and comfortable, yet the most fun I've ever had."

Jan A., CA (2017 Porsche 911)

"All wheel drive and 4 wheel steering hold the road like a true race car. Acceleration is tremendous . The best handling and driving car/experience I have ever had."

Kerry C., CA (2017 Porsche 911)

"Comfortable, yet true sports car handling and super acceleration when needed."

Harold B., IN (2017 Porsche 911)

"Light tough handling, like on rails"

Kathleen M., MA (2017 Porsche 911)

"Acceleration and feel for road."

Anonymous, IN (2017 Porsche 911)

"Acceleration and handling are outstanding, probably the best or equal to any car suitable for driving on the street. What I particularly like is how easy it is to drive. The brakes, steering and body control are very linear, direct with quick response times. This makes it as easy to drive around town as on the track."

Larry F., NM (2017 Porsche 911)

"Cornering stability under hard acceleration. Responsive engine, especially in Sport Mode."

Anonymous, OH (2017 Porsche 911)

"Outstanding. It's a 911 Turbo S. That says it all."

Anonymous, NC (2017 Porsche 911)

"Incredible; fast, agile, responsive. Everything you would want in a sports car."

Anonymous, NY (2017 Porsche 911)

"Outstanding, tight handling; sticks to the road at all times; the twin-turbo engine introduced in the 2017 model is excellent, providing fast acceleration and butter-smooth shifts via the dual-clutch transmission."

Anonymous, AZ (2017 Porsche 911)

"Fantastic handling and acceleration"

Anonymous, CT (2017 Porsche 911)

"Handling is fantastic, it almost reads your mind. Acceleration is more than adequate ;>)"

David R., CA (2017 Porsche 911)

"It outperforms every other vehicle on the road today. It provides a combination of normal daily driving and extreme performance that is unequaled. It is intuitive, easy to drive and exceeds anything I have ever experienced."

Clifford E., CA (2017 Porsche 911)

"Acceleration with the new turbo is better than ever. However, the handling of the car on turns and curves makes it absolutely unique. Nothing I have driven even comes close."

Anonymous, TX (2017 Porsche 911)

"Once you drive a 911, the price tag makes sense. Incredible performance from the base model. I test drove all three cars and chose the base over the S and 4S because it was truly more potent during day to day and weekend fun. I daily this car year round and my toddler loves it too."

Anonymous, MD (2017 Porsche 911)

"I've owned 3 Ferraris and 2 Porsche Turbos, including this one, and the Turbo S is a standout in all performance areas. It is fast, corners fantastically and yet can be a daily driver and is reliable. I made a cross country trip in this car right after I bought it (confidence based upon previous Turbo reliability). Something I would never do in my Ferrari...."

Carlton G., NV (2017 Porsche 911)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Seats are wonderful and very little air turbulence with top down. In Sports mode, engine sounds awesome"

Anonymous, AB (2017 Porsche 911)

"Standard leather seats are a little hard. Only change I would make is upgrade to premium leather"

David R., CA (2017 Porsche 911)

"Very BAD, intolerable on long trips. The car developed an irritating buzzing like-rattling noise just behind the driver's seat when driving on rough asphalt, sealed cracked and bumpy roads at speeds over 40 mph. Dealer has yet to find the cause and correct it."

Anonymous, AZ (2017 Porsche 911)

"magnificent car, but a bit too much road noise. It makes it difficult to use the telephone."

Anonymous, RI (2017 Porsche 911)

"Extremely comfortable seating position and controls are super easy to get and remain comfortable. Storing all the settings to the key couldn’t be easier"

Anonymous, MD (2017 Porsche 911)

"I am 6’6‿ tall. Seats are very comfortable and leg room is excellent The ride is fantastic. Steering, acceleration and all wheel drive are the very best I have experienced The sound of the rear engine turbo is music to my ears"

Kerry C., CA (2017 Porsche 911)

"The 18 way seats create the most comfortable seating arrangement I have ever experienced in any car. I drove 8300 miles over s 30 day period and never experienced tiredness or discomfort of any kind. This is the greatest GT car I have ever driven, much less owned."

Carlton G., NV (2017 Porsche 911)

Value

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"This car is expensive, period. However, what you get in return is a thrilling ride each and every time you make a trip, even to the grocery store. Also... there's only two of us, and this car is excellent for making road trips. It's fast and comfortable. People get out of your way when you're travelling in the left lane."

David H., IL (2017 Porsche 911)

"The Porsche is built very well with outstanding fit and finish. It seems like a small luxury car."

Larry F., NM (2017 Porsche 911)
