2009 Porsche 911

Review Summaries

What reviewers liked most about the Porsche 911

  • When the sport button is pressed, the stiffening of the standard active suspension is noticeable, unlike in many other vehicles. It feels as though the tires are being forced down the road, not that the car is being forced up in response to heaves and cracks. And the classic 911 shape - updated with LED lighting and revised front and rear styling - is still great to look at.

    - Car and Driver
  • Yes, the engine still sounds funny at low revs and the interior isn't perfect...but it delivers one of the purest driving experiences in the world.

What reviewers liked least about the Porsche 911

  • Direct injection has introduced an unsexy clatter to the idle and robbed some of the old flat-six noise, but let's be clear that this is still a great engine.

    - CAR
  • Even though the highway ride is super, the 911's suspension sometimes reacts harshly on rougher pavement.

    - Cars.com
  • The rear seats are not fit for human consumption for passengers beyond 9 or 10 years old.
