2011 Porsche 911 Fuel Economy

Fuel Economy

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.

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

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.
