Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2

The Porsche 911 Carrera and Carrera S both undercut arguably more exclusive rivals including the Aston Martin Vantage and Audi R8 by a fairly hefty margin. Those versions of the 911 still look pretty pricey next to the Jaguar F-Type and its stablemates, the Porsche 718 Cayman and Porsche 718 Boxster.

The Turbo and, particularly, the Turbo S and GT3 versions are vastly more expensive still, although when you consider the performance they offer, they're actually pretty well priced compared with more exotic alternatives from the likes of McLaren, Ferrari and Lamborghini.

Reliability

Porsche finished a disappointing 25th out of 30 car makers in the overall manufacturer league table of our 2021 What Car? Reliability Survey.

The 911 comes with a three-year, unlimited mileage warranty and three years’ European breakdown cover.

Safety and security

Overview

The Porsche 911 is a thrilling sports car and one that's remarkably easy to live with. Most will be best served by the entry-level Carrera, but the Carrera S is also worth considering – especially if you're enticed by the prospect of a manual gearbox. The GTS opens up the options list if you want to tailor your 911 as much as possible.

  • Seriously rapid
  • Great to drive on any road
  • Practical for a sports car
  • Lots of road noise
  • Expensive options
  • Cheaper Cayman is even better to drive
