2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet Long-Term Road Test

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet: Fuel Economy Update for April

May 2, 2013

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

With the last few tanks of our cross-country road trip figured in, our 2013 Porsche 911 has now bumped its lifetime fuel economy number up another notch. Unlike last month, however, this time it was a mere tenth of a mile per gallon, from 22.7 to 22.8.

One figure worth noting is the new range record set by Mike Magrath: 511.8 miles on one tank. That's a nice long run for a 350-horsepower sports car and it reaffirms our contention that the 911 is one of the best grand touring cars around. Comfortable seats, excellent visibility and enough range to go a whole day on two fillups? Doesn't get much better than that.
