What do you think every time someone talks about sportive cars? Maybe that typical design and shape. But now you can describe it simple: Porsche 911. The model kept the same basic shape during half a century, but now that was improved, so as the car’s performance.
The Porsche 911 is a two-door coupe or convertible luxury sports car. It has maintained its same basic layout for over 50 years, while evolving in virtually every way possible to offer both explosive performance and iconic looks. The 911 is without a true competitor. It’s available between $80,000 and more than $240,000, offering a 911 that will suit just about any taste.
Since 1963, the 911 has suffered some cirurgical changes on its composition, but only five were really visible. For the 2012 model year, Porsche introduced the 991 series since the last, but it continued the 997’s sales as well. The new 991 features upgraded engines, a new seven-speed manual transmission, a revised PDK dual-clutch transmission, a wider front track and a longer wheelbase. Talking about some physical characteristics, the 911 is 100 pounds lighter than the 997, meaning that its “hardware” was revised, so as its comfortable interior. In sum, this car is the best from the family, due to its great improvements.
