2011 Porsche 911 vs. Its Competition

2011 Porsche 911 GTS
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

The 2010 Porsche 911's terrific performance and looks are nearly unmatched.

The most powerful Chevrolet Corvette ever, the 638-horsepower ZR1, comes close, but depends on displacement to get there, giving it a heavier, more hair-raising feel.

The Jaguar XKR nearly hits the 911's target with a tremendously sexy profile, a much more lavish interior, and this year, a throaty 510-hp V-8 to help make its case.

Within the VW Group alone, the 911 has the Audi R8 in its rearview mirror; the V-10-powered sports car grips with all-wheel-drive tenacity, looks like nothing else, and drops its lid in Spyder style.
