The Porsche 911 is a fantastic sports car and one of the few you can live with every day. Lower-end models are world-class and define the sports car categoryread the full model review
The entry-level 911 comes with 19in alloy wheels, leather seats, sat-nav and a DAB radio as standard. It’s our favourite version, although – at the very least – you’ll want to pay extra for cruise control, parking sensors, heated seats and rain-sensing wipers.
The engine is the stock 3.0-litre turbocharged unit from the Carrera, but the gearshifter has been made shorter, as has the gearing of the seven-speed gearbox. These changes result in more immediate acceleration over the standard Carrera and a more interactive experience behind the wheel.
