For comfort, it's up to you to choose plusher seats for your 911. If it were our car, we'd skip the nicely firm manual-slide, power-rake seats and move up to the 12-way power seats. They have memory positions, good back support, and optional ventilation, and they feel better on longer trips than the base or the superfirm sport seats. Some seats have adaptive cushioning, and inflate or deflate some air chambers on the go-which seems over the top.

The 911's upright style lends lots of headroom to the front passengers, but that lovely, long slope to the tail and the rear-mounted engine turn the backseats into child's play. They're token gestures, not even large enough for small children. Use them for luggage-there's also a weekend-bag space under the front hood-and you'll be able to take it on a couples' vacation.

Cabriolet versions are fitted with an impressively snug top and equipped with a heated glass rear window. Putting the top down is a one-button affair that snugly retracts the whole thing in just a few seconds and sends it back up in a few more. Targa models have a large glass sunroof that glides back for a more open-air driving experience, though it still retains a roof structure.

No matter which body style, the 911 has a tightly constructed feel, and fit and finish top our rankings, with a few exceptions-like the flimsy flip-out cup holders hidden behind poorly fitted plastic trim in front.

Conclusion

Up front, the Porsche 911 offers a snug, well-built space-in back, it's one tight squeeze.

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.
