Introduction

What Car? says...

You wouldn’t paint over the Mona Lisa or add neon lighting to Westminster Abbey. Likewise, you don’t mess with the iconic design of the Porsche 911. But under the skin there have been loads of changes to Porsche’s iconic rear-engined sports car over the years.

This latest version is codenamed the 992 and, right now, you can choose from four turbocharged flat-six petrol engines. The range kicks off with the 380bhp Carrera and 444bhp Carrera S, both of which are available with a choice of rear or four-wheel drive. Even these versions offer some serious performance.

But the two Turbo models (yes, we know we said all versions are turbocharged, but it's tradition for the range-toppers to wear the 'Turbo' badge) are among the fastest cars on the road. Indeed, the 641bhp Turbo S can do 0-62mph in a scarcely believable 2.7sec.

In the near future, a hardcore track-focused GT3 model will join the range (this won't be turbocharged) and further down the line there will be two plug-in hybrid 911 models, including one with more than 600bhp and a top speed of almost 200mph.

So, is the Porsche 911 still the greatest sports car for those who want a dash of practicality and an interior that doesn't feel stripped out like a racing car's? Over the next few pages of this review, we'll tell you everything you could want to know about the 992, including what it's like to sit in, how much fun it is to drive, and how much it will cost you to buy and run. We'll also tell you which versions make the most sense and run you through the options (there are many) worth considering.

And when you've decided which new car is perfect for you, try our New Car Buying service. You could makes substantial savings on the brochure price without having to go through the hassle of haggling.
