For Incredibly fast, agile and exciting if you find the right road (or track). Easily capable of keeping up with a Ferrari – for half the money.

The Porsche 911 is a terrific proposition for those wanting an accomplished sports car - but the greatest achievement here is that it can be much more than that. There’s enough cruising refinement and everyday usability for the 911 to be an everyday GT. It’ll take you from one side of the country to the other in refined comfort - yet turn into a frighteningly capable hooligan upon request.
If there’s a fault, it’s that it takes real determination - and commitment - to get the 911 to switch fully into ‘entertainment mode’. However, the all-round range of abilities is so strong that we have little hesitation in recommending it - either as a rapid GT or a pure sports car.
