Expert Quotes:

The longer wheelbase was created for a number of reasons, including better ride quality, additional passenger compartment space, and for something Porsche's engineers referred to as "future powertrain needs."
Automobile Magazine

The new car's longer wheelbase also translates to added legroom, but only by 1 inch for the front seats. Rear seats also benefit from added legroom, but are still barely suitable even for small children.
Edmunds

The interior feels similarly familiar, with round gauges, supportive yet comfortable seats, lush materials throughout, an ignition mounted to the left of the steering wheel and of course, rear seats sized for whisking Frodo to the Shire.
Kelley Blue Book

A la the Panamera, the 991 sports a center console that is fully integrated into the dash, creating a richer, more modern cockpit.
Motor Trend

When the sports exhaust is off, the cabin is as quiet as a German library on Sunday morning. During our testing we called this "Luxury Mode."
Popular Science

With leather seats, across the dash, and many other places in the cabin, the 2013 Porsche 911 feels and looks more like a typical luxury sedan than a bare-bones sports car.

Adding to the elegant feel, aluminum accents highlight key design elements, while most of the controls and functions are delegated to high-quality plastic switchgear.

The front seats are comfortable and easy to get into. Available sport seats add more bolstering and hard-driving support while still suiting a wide range of body types. Rear-seat leg room is minimal to non-existent, however, especially if the front-seat occupants are on the taller end of the spectrum.

Inside the cabin, there's not very much storage space--unless you re-purpose the rear seats--but it's about on on par for the sport coupe class.

Located in the front, the trunk is spacious and deeper than you might expect. There's room enough for a pair of weekend bags or a few days' groceries, helping to keep the 911's reputation as one of the most daily-life-friendly sports cars.

Conclusion

Fantastic fit and finish, excellent materials, and ample features make the 2013 Porsche 911 a no-compromises sports car.

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.
