Probably the most iconic sports car ever made, the Porsche 911 has set class standards for handling and performance for years – and this current edition, codenamed ‘992’ is the most accomplished variant yet. The rear-engined layout that made early 911s so tricky to handle is still part of the 911's DNA, but it’s been refined over the generations so that the car now has the stability to match its jaw-dropping performance.
Eventually Porsche will offer the 992 in multiple configurations (there were more than 20 editions of the last generation car) but for the time being you can choose it in Carrera S and 4S forms – these two being, historically, the most popular models in the 911 line up. That means it will be in direct competition with everything from the Jaguar F-Type SVR and BMW 8 Series, to the Audi R8.
Over the new few pages we’ll look at what the 992 is like to drive, what its new tech laden interior is like to use, and how much it will cost you to buy and run.
