By Auto News Log • September 22nd, 2011

The Porsche 911 remains the iconic symbol of a sports car.

The 911 is available as either a coupe or a cabriolet, in either a rear-wheel drive (Carrera) or an all-wheel drive (Carrera 4) configuration, as well as a Turbo all-wheel drive model. The 911 Carrera and Carrera 4 are powered by a 345-hp direct-injection 3.6-liter flat six-cylinder, and the Carrera S and Carrera 4S’s are powered by a 385-hp direct-injection 3.8-liter flat six-cylinder engine.

The Turbo is a 500-hp version of the 3.8-liter (530-hp in the Turbo S). Transmission choices are a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch known as PDK. The track-derived GT3 is powered by a 435-hp 3.8-liter flat six-cylinder engine and comes exclusively as a rear-wheel drive coupe with a six-speed manual transmission.
