Coming up hot in the battle for the title of best sports car is the Porsche 911 Carrera. Of course number one on our list would be a Porsche. And this isn’t even their only entry, so you know that they know their stuff.
So many affordable sports cars are pinned against the 911. It’s superfast. It’s sophisticated. And it’s practical for everyday driving, which is a bonus if you don’t want to shell out on a second set of wheels for the more mundane daily activities.
The Porsche 911 Carrera is available in a bunch of trims: Carrera 4, Carrera S, Carrera 4S, and more. It has an incredibly impressive breadth of ability, powered by a fiery 3.0-litre petrol engine.
Ramping up to 62mph is achieved seamlessly in under 3.9 seconds and it manages a sound 25-28.5mpg which for a sportscar is nae bad. Its four-wheel drive promises enhanced security and steadiness when you’re running at top speed, meaning you don’t need to compromise on safety when you’re shredding the tarmac.
- Cool, steady handling.
- It’s not too thirsty - decent fuel economy for a sports car.
- Cramped back seats. Don’t invite 3 friends along for a ride.
- Being totally picky, the seats are a little firmer than other rides.
