About Porsche 911
After half a century in existence, the Porsche 911's profile is iconic and its handling has set the benchmark for a legion of rivals that range from the venerable Chevrolet Corvette to up-and-comers like the Jaguar F-Type. Over the years, Porsche has taken evolutionary vs. revolutionary steps, gradually increasing the capability and civility of this rear-engine coupe and convertible. The approach has paid off, with today's 911 boasting exceptional performance and refinement. Now encompassing nearly 20 models, the 2015 Porsche 911 selection spans from the "base" $85,000 rear-wheel-drive Carrera coupe to the nearly $200,000 Turbo S all-wheel-drive cabriolet. There are a dizzying amount of 911s to keep track of, so here's a breakdown of models and their base prices. No matter which you choose, you'll get an iconic sports car with power and provenance.
