This is possibly the best Porsche 911 ever. That may be a bold statement but it is certainly one of the best driver’s cars of all time.

Porsche 911 Coupé (12-19)
Quicker and lighter, more economical than before, excellent handling
High running costs, larger 20-inch wheels ruin the ride

This is possibly the best Porsche 911 ever. That may be a bold statement but it is certainly one of the best driver’s cars of all time. Porsche has largely stuck to the core attributes that has made the 911 so successful over the years. The classic silhouette remains, as does the rear-engine layout and the flat-six boxer engine. This model is a lighter car than its predecessor, while power has been increased and emissions and fuel economy have been improved. All these improvements, along with the excellent Porsche performance, make this 911 one of the most engaging and entertaining cars around. There's some tough competition for the 911 though, with rivals including the Jaguar XK R, Audi’s R8 and the Aston Martin Vantage. Sure it has to contend with other impressive performance car heavyweights, but there's no denying the Porsche 911 is one of the best cars in its class.

In 2013 the 911 celebrated its 50th anniversary with a special edition known imaginatively as the 'Commemorative 50 Years Edition'. Based on the Carrera S with a 400bhp 3.8-litre engine, this version gets the wider body from the four-wheel drive car but only the rear wheels are driven. Only 1,963 versions will be built.
