Vehicle Details Interior

The interior of the 2014 Porsche 911 feels familiar, with round gauges, an ignition placed left of the steering wheel, lush materials throughout and, of course, rear seats sized for little more than whisking Frodo to the shire. The optional 18-way sport front seats are supremely comfortable and supportive, a tilt-and-slide sunroof improves headroom, and the full-length console recalls the Carrera GT supercar. The 911's front trunk offers a modest 4.7 cubic feet of cargo space but that can be supplemented by an optional roof-rack system and rear seats that fold down individually to create a parcel shelf.

Exterior

The 7th-generation platform that now underlies all 911s carries on the unmistakable traditional appearance even though the roof is now lower, the length and wheelbase have increased considerably, and detailing, fascias and lighting are new. The car looks both sleeker and more muscular. Casual observers may find it difficult to distinguish the new 911 Turbo from its Carrera-badged counterparts, but the differences are actually quite dramatic. For instance, the 911 Turbo and higher-performing Turbo S variants are 0.6 inches longer and 1.1 inches wider than a "wide-body" Carrera 4S.

Notable Standard Equipment

In base form, the 2014 Porsche 911 Carrera coupe and cabriolet come equipped with 4-way power front seats with manual fore/aft adjustment, partial leather upholstery, a faux suede headliner, bi-xenon headlights (xenon illumination for the low and high beam), dual-zone climate control, 19-inch wheels and a 7-inch LCD navigation display linked to a 9-speaker audio system. The 911 Carrera 4 and Turbo models offer all-wheel drive (AWD) as standard fare. In terms of safety, every 911 includes eight airbags, a wide array of electronic stability aids and high-performance brakes comprising 4-piston calipers and 13-inch ventilated rotors.

Notable Optional Equipment

Highlights from the 911's options list include adaptive headlights that swivel in unison with the steering wheel, ventilated front seats, an ultra-premium 12-speaker Burmester sound system, ceramic-composite brakes that are both lighter and more resistant to fading than standard setups, Porsche's Active Suspension Management, and the Sport Chrono package with its launch-control programming (PDK transmission only) and overboost function (Turbo models only). For the enthusiast who desires the best of both worlds, we recommend Porsche's Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), for it essentially eliminates body roll through a multitude of sensors and hydraulic motors while also providing a more compliant ride in normal driving conditions.

Under the Hood

As Porsche shuffles the remaining 911 models from the previous 997 platform to the new 991, the powertrain lineup simplifies this year. There are now just two normally aspirated engines, making 350 horsepower in Carrera trim, 400 in Carrera S, 475 horsepower in the GT3, and two turbocharged engines tuned for 520 horsepower (Turbo) and 560 (Turbo S). All are sophisticated liquid-cooled flat-6s with four valves per cylinder, variable intake-valve timing and direct fuel injection. Any of these engines can be paired with Porsche's 7-speed PDK twin-clutch automatic transmission. The Carrera's manual alternative is the unique 7-speed box Porsche introduced for the 2012 model year.

Pricing Notes

The 2014 Porsche 911 series starts at a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of just over $85,000 for the Carrera coupe and $97,000 for the Carrera Cabriolet. Higher-performing "S" variants of each will set you back an extra $14,000. Likewise, all-wheel drive tacks an additional $7,000 to the bottom line. The new 911 Turbo and Turbo S open at $149,000 and $182,000, respectively. For comparison, the 500-plus-horsepower Nissan GT-R and Jaguar XK-R start right around $100,000, while the Aston Martin Vantage and Audi R8 begin in the low $120,000 range.
