Porsche 911 (2015–)

What's good

The move to turbocharged engines may have worried the purists, but the 911 is actually all the better for it with the same sound but better low down response.

Comfortable and easy to drive around town the 911 is a high performance car you can easily live with day to day.

Change to twin-turbo 3.0-litre engine should mean slightly better fuel economy in theory.

Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) with ride height lowered by 10 mm comes as standard.

Navigation and DAB standard on all cars.

From 2019 has a proximity key disabling system that prevents key signals being boosted and relayed to a thief standing beside the car.
