A 911 is the ultimate for purists
By roger Bassetti on


2009 Porsche 911 Carrera 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 6M)


The 911 continues to represent an exhilarating experience for a sports car purist. The driver comfort issue becomes a moot issue when the driver gets behind the wheel. I find excuses to drive the 911 because of its unrivaled performance and "fun to drive" quotient. This is not a car which is designed to put you asleep. Rather, it is a car which responds to your every wish and performs as if it is an extension of your own psyche. Ferry Porsche had it right; build the 911 based upon racing performance.

Best Features

The PDK transmission responds to all types of sports car enthusiasts. If you are in heavy traffic, tired, and bored, use the automatic. If you want to fly, use the standard.

Worst Features

A new 911 engine can use a lot of oil. Although the dealers will tell you a new 911 needs an oil change only once a year, I have found that 911's need to be checked every six months. Mine was down a quart after six months. Big deal, instrument panel warns you and dealer adds the quart, no charge.
