How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

Porsche could have pushed the aesthetic boundaries further but overall the designers did their job, keeping the 911 looking fresh yet classic.

Kelley Blue Book »

Fortunately, everything in the test car that could be covered in beautifully tailored and stitched brown leather is covered just that way.

Inside Line »

It sounds even better, it rides even better, it feels even better, it's even more comfortable, better equipped, and it's far better looking.

Automobile Magazine »

While previous Turbo models have used the wider of the two body widths made available for normally aspirated 911s, the 991 Turbo has a body that's more than 3 inches wider than that used by the standard Carrera.

Edmunds »

The car appears longer and lower but, most would agree, still clearly a 911.

The Basics:

The Porsche 911 is not just the brand’s iconic sports car, it’s one of the most iconic cars ever. From the standard Carrera to the GT3 to the Turbo S, the 2014 Porsche 911 spans a range of capability, performance, and price that’s simply staggering. It remains a benchmark for sports cars the world over, and in its higher forms, puts supercars on notice.

Now in its seventh generation, the Porsche 911 is longer, wider, and lighter than before, while somehow retaining the classic cues and curves that identify the 911's iconic shape.

New options for the 2014 model year include all-LED headlights with dynamic high beam; SportDesign side mirrors; Sport bucket seats; a storage net in the passenger footwell; speed limit display in navigation-equipped vehicles; digital radio; CDR-Plus audio system; and a host of new colors. The 2014 GT3 gets a new PDK Sport button on the center console to offer a more aggressive transmission setting for hard driving.

A pair of  turbocharged 911 models join the 475-horsepower GT3 released early in 2013 as a 2014 model. The 520-horsepower 911 Turbo and 560-horsepower Turbo S offer even more power than the race-inspired GT3, plus standard all-wheel drive and a much less spartan interior experience.

For those with less concern for having the highest-horsepower sports car on the block, the 350-horsepower Carrera/Carrera 4 and 400-horsepower Carrera S/Carrera 4S offer the full 911 experience at a more palatable price point--but still with a choice of extra sport and all-wheel drive.

All models expect the GT3 and Turbo range offer a choice of a seven-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed PDK paddle-shift dual-clutch automatic. The GT3, Turbo, and Turbo S are only available with the PDK gearbox.

While the exteriors and performance options vary widely across the 911 range, the cabins are nearly identical throughout the lineup. Upgraded seats, materials, and infotainment features are included in the upgrade to many of the higher-performance models, but many options are available a la carte even at the 911's entry point. Whichever 911 you choose, the front seats are comfortable and roomy, with an open-feeling cabin thanks to large windows at the front and sides. The rear seats are best suited to extra cargo and occasional child-ferrying duties, as leg room is minimal, and the 911's sloping roof compromises head room, too. A front trunk area holds a fair amount of luggage.

Gas mileage is rather good for a high-performance sports car family, with up to 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway possible. Even the 560-horsepower 911 Turbo S isn't a gas guzzler at 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway.

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has crash tested the 2014 Porsche 911. Despite the lack of data, Porsche's reputation for sound engineering, advanced safety devices and electronics, and the 911's innate dynamic responsiveness should help avoid crashes or minimize injury.

Likes:

  • Performance ranges from great to fantastic
  • Modern take on classic good looks
  • Comfortable, quiet interior
  • Fair gas mileage for performance class
  • Day-to-day practicality

Dislikes:

  • Electric power steering feel isn't quite 100%
  • Can get expensive in a hurry
  • Rear seat is cramped
