2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet: Fuel Economy Update for January

February 4, 2013

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

The 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet has been with us since the beginning of January, and we've burned just six tanks of 91 octane fuel so far.

Our worst tank was compliments of 200 miles of around-town city driving, leaving us with a tank average of 15.8 mpg. Porsche reports an EPA rating of 18 mpg in the city.

Our best tank was 19.4 mpg, not far off the mark of Porsche's combined EPA rating of 21 mpg.

We'll see how the Porsche Carrera Cab's average holds up as we get further into our year-long test.
