With a starting price of $101,200 you might think there isn’t a detail that wasn’t overlooked in this German made work of art. And when you see it in person you will likely have a similar impression. After a quick test drive it was hard for me to believe that I had ever driven anything else before this one. I love this car: it’s so smooth, so fast, and handles like an angel.
This car stays true to the brands heritage. A rear-mounted flat six engine, familiar circular headlights, and a sloping rump make it an unmistakable 911 to any sports car driver. Step into the car, fire up the engine then rest your shoulders back into a well-positioned driver’s seat. As soon as you pull into first gear you immediately feel the transmissions engage. As you pull out onto the road the performance is exactly what you’d expect. And as a car guy it doesn’t get too much better than this.

After reviewing the interior it is quickly apparent that this new model is no diva. It’s cutline contours and calligraphy on the tail draw you in. Once there you find the kid carrying back seats, a practical upright cabin, and all the other necessities that just work. But it isn’t just a car. It is a lot more than that. Otherwise it wouldn’t be a Porsche, right? This race-hardened 911 lives up to it’s reputation as I mentioned earlier with controls that allow incredible balance and precision.
If the standard interior isn’t up to par for your taste the new 20201 model offers a 930 Leather package and lightweight insulated glass. These help save weight and reduce noise. A few other nice features that you might notice include a programmable GPS that includes capability to raise the nose at specific locations using an optional front-axle lift system.
Pricing for a new 911 can vary by model. Below is what you might expect. While these can all be good choices, the Carrera 4S Cabriolet looks to be a nice option with manual transmission or dual-clutch automatic options available. An all wheel drive system also make it even more appeals for those who have to maneuver though slippery conditions.
