Expert Quotes:

Porsche could have pushed the aesthetic boundaries further but overall the designers did their job, keeping the 911 looking fresh yet classic.
Kelley Blue Book

Fortunately, everything in the test car that could be covered in beautifully tailored and stitched brown leather is covered just that way.
Inside Line

It sounds even better, it rides even better, it feels even better, it's even more comfortable, better equipped, and it's far better looking.
Automobile Magazine

While previous Turbo models have used the wider of the two body widths made available for normally aspirated 911s, the 991 Turbo has a body that's more than 3 inches wider than that used by the standard Carrera.
Edmunds

The car appears longer and lower but, most would agree, still clearly a 911.
Motor Trend

Still without doubt a Porsche 911 at first glance, the styling of the latest model is very different from its predecessor--just subtly so.

A low, sloped nose, rising front fenders capped by round-ish headlights, and the fastback coupe profile all say "911," despite the changes. All four of the new 991-based variants are also available in Cabriolet (convertible) form as well.  A wider front track balances out the front-rear proportions, and the longer wheelbase helps stretch the car's lines into more elegant arches and curves.

Moving up from the base Carrera to the Carrera 4, 4S, GT3, and Turbo, the styling gets progressively sportier and, at the upper end, more racing-oriented. Likewise, track widths and fender flares grow wider, and ride heights drop lower as you move up the performance spectrum.

Inside, the Porsche 911 carries off an adaptation of the Panamera's cabin with equal if not greater skill; though the center console is perhaps a bit button-heavy, it's much sleeker and more intuitive than the Panamera's own, while the dash, steering wheel, and other details fit perfectly with the 911's sporting aptitude and daily-driver comfort.

Conclusion

The look of the 2014 Porsche 911 has evolved hugely over the past 50 years, but somehow still echoes the original.

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.
