2010 Porsche 911 Safety

8.0
Safety

Neither NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) nor the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) has crash-tested the 2010 911 lineup.

Dual front, side, and curtain airbags are standard, along with Porsche's excellent PSM stability control system, anti-lock braking, and brake assists to boost the driver's inputs and to keep the brakes dry for optimal stopping power.

The 2010 Porsche 911 doesn't have any official crash-test scores, but there's an excellent suite of safety features.

There are no fancy safety gadgets like lane-departure warning systems, backup cameras, or active cruise control available-but the 911's sheer performance is a safety net of its own, as is the available all-wheel drive.

Visibility is acceptable on most versions, but the low seating position and the sharp drop-off on the rear quarters will make you think twice about backing up in dicey situations.
