2012 Porsche 911 Comfort & Quality

8.0
Comfort & Quality
Leather predominates in the seating and surfaces of the new 911, soft and pliable yet still durable-seeming. Aluminum accents highlight key design elements, and high-quality plastic switchgear handles most of the controls.

Both front seats are very comfortable, either with the standard base seats or the pricey sport seats, though the extra bolstering and adjustability of the sport seats may suit a wider range of body types as well as holding occupants in place with more authority during aggressive maneuvers. In the back, leg room is still at a premium despite the extra wheelbase, but children should be fine as long as the front-seat occupants aren't particularly tall.

The trunk (up front) is spacious, and deeper than you'd expect given the 911's low-slung stance. In the cabin, there's not as much room as you might want, though Porsche does make a concession to drivers who like to stay hydrated with a pair of pop-out cupholders in the dash.

The 2012 Porsche 911 offers excellent fit, finish, and function, and sets a benchmark for the sports car class.
