2010 Porsche 911 Carrera 4

2010 Porsche 911 Review

(5 Stars)  There's a reason it's endured for nearly 50 years

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
In the last half century, there is no sports car, perhaps no car of any kind, more iconic and instantly recognizable, than the Porsche 911. Whether it's winning races worldwide or providing perennial smiles for owners, versions of the 911 continue to be the brass ring other auto makers strive for.

From its air cooled engine roots, the 911 has a long way. The engine still hangs out over the rear axle, though the air cooling is now gone. Giving way to liquid cooling some years ago and benefiting from its improved cooling performance. While the 911 has gone through many generations, you won't see the large changes between generations as you might with other models. The engineers at Stuttgart are well aware that their customers are happy with the current models and will only accept evolutionary and not revolutionary changes to the car as a whole.

The engines available for the 911 are all powerful, but they do offer a variety of power plants to choose from. Its base 3.8 liter V-6 makes 345 Hp. Power increases through the models up the 500 HP Turbo versions.
