The 911 first appeared in 1963, and instantly defined what a Porsche is. The rear-engine sports car has endured for five decades, even as its intended replacement—the front-engine 928—came and went. Amazingly, there have been only three basic 911 platforms in all that time. The latest appeared in 2012, so it's safe to say it will be with us for quite a while.
As usual, the 911 family encompasses a tempting slate of V6 coupes, convertibles and turbos with horsepower ranging from 350 to 530. Although Southern California snaps up the majority of 911 models bound for the U.S., there's an all-wheel drive variant for buyers who might see snow on occasion.
