You'll struggle finding a more perfect sports car. Its engine is one of the best ever, both transmission options are superb, and the handling is on another level. A nearly perfect car.

The Porsche 911, with its heroic levels of grip and acceleration, is universally recognized as one of the best performance cars on the planet. It comes as a Coupe, Targa or Cabriolet.

The big news in 2022 is that there is a new GT3, the only 911 that isn't turbocharged, making it the ultimate evolution of the old-school Porsche. It's a 4.0-liter flat-6 with 502 hp and 346 lb-ft of torque.

Some smaller news is that Android Auto is added to the infotainment system, whose interface is now like that in the Porsche Taycan, with more subscription services such as real-time traffic bundled into a three-year period.

The 3.0-liter turbocharged flat-6 engine makes different amounts of horsepower depending on the model and its state of tune. It can be a mellow 379 hp or a monstrous 640 hp. Zero-to-60 mph times can be in the high three seconds, or as low as 2.6 seconds. The transmission on most models is an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic manual, with all-wheel drive also coming on most models.

The 911 measures 177.9 inches long, and rides on a 96.5-inch wheelbase, not much bigger than a Honda del Sol. At its lightest, it weighs less than 3400 lb and handles with flat precision. With struts and links and adaptive dampers and limited-slip differentials, the 911 picks a point on the horizon and screams toward it, on a run of handling glory. It's beyond adept at finding grip, and thanks to brilliantly matched electronic controls for shift speeds, damping, ride height, steering weight, and torque distribution, it doesn't feel complex or overdone.

The performance of the Cabriolet and Targa nearly match the Coupe, adding their power tops that fold down at 30 mph or less.

The cockpit offers comfortable form-fitting bucket seats with lots of range, with heating and optional cooling. Technically there's a back seat, but it's barely big enough to consider a seat. And the 4.7-cubic-foot front trunk isn't much for road trips.

A Carrera S with a 7-speed manual transmission gets the best gas mileage, rated by the EPA at 18 mpg city, 25 highway, 21 combined. The Porsche Turbo drops to 15/20/17 mpg.

Neither the NHTSA nor the IIHS has tested a 911, and likely never will. Automatic emergency braking is standard, but Porsche charges extra for other important safety equipment, such as blind-spot monitors, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability, active lane control, night vision and a surround-view camera system.
