Potential shoppers likely aren't looking Porsche's way for great fuel economy--but they get it anyway.

For what it represents in raw performance, the 2011 Porsche 911 lineup has amazing fuel economy. The base version, a 911 Carrera with rear-wheel drive, a hard coupe roof and the seven-speed dual-clutch "PDK" automatic, earns an EPA rating of 19 miles per gallon city, 27 miles per gallon highway.

As it gets more powerful and more heavy, the 911 doesn't turn into a gas-swilling oil addict, either. The 911 Carrera Turbo Cabriolet is rated at 16/24 mpg--stunning, for a car with a 0-60 mph time of about 4.0 seconds.

Porsche hasn't said if it will adapt any of its hybrid technology to the 911 lineup, but a new car is due for the 2013 model year, and it's expected to incorporate some more fuel-saving measures--though nothing like the full hybrid powertrain now offered on the Cayenne SUV, or the diesel that may also be fitted to the big ute.

Conclusion

The 2011 Porsche 911 has a gas-mileage rating that's better than some mid-size sedans.

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.
