Porsche 911 2020 coupe
  • Road Test

  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
Porsche has redesigned the 911 for 2019, but its unmistakable silhouette and rear-engine layout remain. Both rear- or all-wheel drive are available. A turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine and 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission are standard. Porsche purists will rejoice at the fact that the new 911 will still offer a manual transmission. Infotainment updates include a 10.9-inch touch-screen with Apple CarPlay compatibility. Forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking are standard. Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go traffic capability is optional. Previously tested 911s were quick, with sublime handling. The ride wasn’t particularly taxing on long trips, thanks to its relatively supple ride and subdued noise levels. Interiors were also beautifully crafted, but the numerous buttons and switches could be daunting at first. The new 911 goes on sale Summer of 2019.
All Ratings & Reliability
2019
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
The 911's iconic shape hides a thoroughly modern sports car, delivering performance and relative refinement. All the engines have been updated, with the base model getting a 370-hp six-cylinder engine and the Carrera S a 420-hp engine, both matched with a seven-speed manual. There are numerous higher-performance versions offered. The 911 is quick, with sublime handling that makes you feel directly connected to the machine. The exhaust note is terrific, and driving the automated manual is almost as thrilling as the stick shift. The 911 isn't particularly taxing on long trips, thanks to its relatively supple ride and subdued noise levels, but the low-slung cabin makes getting in and out a challenge. The interior is beautifully crafted, but the numerous buttons and switches can be daunting at first.

2013-2018
2013 Redesign Year
Porsche 911 2018
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.

2005-2012
2005 Redesign Year
Porsche 911 2012
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.

Porsche 911 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.
