Benefits of Driving a 2012 Porsche 911 Coupe

In the world of high-end sports cars, the 911 is the most iconic choice, with over 30 years of evolution under its belt. For 2012, the design has changed, but the fundamentals are still in place: rear-mounted flat 6-cylinder engine and a precision chassis developed with handling in mind. Together, the components make for a sports car that's hard to beat both in terms of aesthetics and performance. It's arguably a capable competitor for the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Audi R8, BMW M3 and Nissan GT-R.

What's new for 2012?

The Porsche 911 has been given a substantial update for 2012. Internally, the new evolution of the car is known as the 991, and although it still features a rear-mounted flat-6-cylinder engine, the car now features a 3.9-inch increase in its wheelbase over the outgoing model. The body is just 2.2 inches longer and it sits 0.4 inches lower than the 2011 model.

Model Strengths

  • Iconic design with a fresh spin
  • exceptional agility
  • top-level engine performance

Model Review

The Porsche 911 is all new for 2012, following on its history of evolutionary changes rather than revolutionary leaps. Overall, while styling is updated, the car is still unmistakably 911 throughout, with the characteristic shape and round headlights we've come to expect from Porsche's lead sports car.
