The 911 manages to stand on its own.
There's no other model line offering the breadth and depth of offerings.
That said, there are several competitors aimed at parts of the 911 roster.
The Chevy Corvette is an incredible value, starting at about half the price of similar-performance 911s; the Vette has an interior that finally matches the performance of the car, but without a back seat or all-wheel drive, the Corvette can only be considered against a small portion of the 911 range—even though the Z06 boasts awesome performance that some might weigh up against the 911 Turbo or GT3.
The new Mercedes-AMG GT is a strong rival to the 911; it's more brash and bold, and not quite the everyday driver, however.
The Jaguar F-Type chooses a balance that's much closer to the 911's mix of practicality, style, and speed, but comes up short in the purity of its dynamics--though its sound and design are among the best in the segment.
Nissan's GT-R is best compared to the upper end of the Porsche range, as its twin-turbo all-wheel-drive nature gives it incredible acceleration and impressive overall performance.
With a vestigial back seat, much like the 911's, the GT-R's practicality and daily-driver suitability are close to the 911's as well.
BMW's 6-Series is more comfort-oriented than the very sporty Porsche 911, but offers its own brand of speed in the form of the M6.
