Expert Quotes:

The latest 911 benefits from numerous technological updates, not the least of which is PDCC or Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, a system that uses active anti-sway bars to virtually eliminate body roll when cornering.
Kelley Blue Book

But these computers aren't programmed only to minimize warranty claims, meet CAFE regulations, impress the IIHS and put a smile on the face of the EPA administrator. These computers make driving more vivid, more precise and less of a hassle.
Edmunds

And we haven't gotten to the spicy stuff yet: twenty-inch wheels, active engine mounts, active roll stabilization and adaptive suspension are all options-and they were all on the 911 we drove.
Automobile Magazine

Interior controls are relatively simple to operate, and items like navigation, Bluetooth, the iPod interface and ventilated seats help make this sports car a viable daily driver.
Edmunds

Also, the 911 has a larger backseat, so those of you with kids can explain to the husband or wife that yes, the 911 is practical to take the kids to and from school. Good luck with that.
Popular Science

The 2014 Porsche 911 is well-equipped even in its most basic form, and a very long list of available features can enhance performance, luxury, comfort, and technology--but at a price.

Last year, Porsche added a new adaptive cruise control system for PDK-equipped models, front-end collision avoidance, and a panoramic sliding glass sunroof. For 2014, new features include available all-LED headlights with dynamic high/low beam function; new Sport bucket seats with available seat heating and memory settings (optional); a speed limit display function (optional on vehicles with PCM plus navigation); digital radio (optional); 235-watt CDR Plus audio with 9 speakers and CD/DVD drive, plus USB and iPod/iPhone connectivity (optional); and a new selection of exterior and interior colors.

Standard equipment includes: Porsche Communication Management, which combines audio, navigation, and phone-integration functions; a seven-inch touchscreen interface; DVD/CD/MP3 audio; and more. Keyless entry, USB, iPod interface, Bluetooth, and automatic two-zone climate control are also standard. A sliding/tilting sunroof is also available, as is the ParkAssist system with front and rear parking sensors and an overhead display of nearby obstacles.

The Burmester surround-sound system is available as an upgrade, and it sounds fantastic. With the Burmester, you'll get 12 channels pumping a total of 821 watts, including a 300-watt subwoofer, plus Air Motion Transformer tweeters and some of the best sound we've heard in a car. A Bose system is also available, though we'd pick the Burmester if money is no object.

Many more individual options are also available, though if you get too wild with the add-ons, the bottom line will quickly grow far beyond the $82,100 (Carrera) and $96,400 (Carrera S) base prices.

Conclusion

The 2014 Porsche 911 is well-equipped even in base specification, but beware the rapidly mounting cost of an extensive upgrade list.

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.
