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.
