2017 Porsche 911 vs. Its Competition

2017 Porsche 911
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Porsche 911 is still the benchmark sports car in a category of all-time greats.

Yes, the new Corvette is a great sports car—finally—but it may not age as gracefully as the Porsche.

Mercendes-Benz's new AMG GT is a heat-seeking missile at the 911's dominance, but approaches cutting through the air in a completely different way: that's hatchet, the 911 is a scalpel.

The 6-Series is aging, but it's a better grand tourer.

The GT-R gets a performance bump and some needed interior upgrades, but has none of the drama of a 911.

The Jaguar F-Type is a full-on romp, but can get old quickly.
