Scheduled for an update in 2008, Porsche's sleekly styled flagship 911 is available for 2007 in base Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S all-wheel-drive, GT3 and turbo forms. The all-wheel-drive system in the 4S model has a multi-disc viscous coupling and transfers between 5 and 40 percent of the engine's power permanently to the front wheels for very high grip levels on dry pavement as well as much-improved traction on slippery roads. Slightly wider at the rear than rear-drive 911s, the AWD versions are able to accommodate wider tires at the back for even more grip. Elsewhere in the line, the base 911 Carrera comes with a rear-mounted, 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine that generates 325 horsepower and 274 lb-ft of torque. Top speed is 177 mph, with 0-60 times just over five seconds. The Carrera S versions, meanwhile, take this performance up a notch with a 355-horsepower 3.8-liter flat six that cuts the car's 0-60 mph time to 4.6 seconds. Stability control is standard on the S and available on the base Carrera 4 models. An Active Suspension Management system is available that allows the driver to switch from what is already a sporty ride to ultra-grippy suspension settings with the flip of a switch. As if that's not enough, the 911 Turbo S comes with a turbocharged version of the 3.6-liter powerplant that provides 444 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque. Ceramic composite brakes, 18-inch alloy wheels, and high-performance tires are added to the Turbo S as well. Standard features include high-capacity four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock control and Active Brake Differential, traction control, and front-side and side-curtain airbags. The options list is the longest in the industry, and affords almost total customization -- albeit at a stiff price.

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.
