The New Year might be just be a few days young, but the Porsche 911 has already been hailed by The Sunday Times Driving editorial team as its top car of 2016.
Based on verdicts from the newspaper’s top 100 cars driven in the past year, the latest generation of the iconic coupe from Stuttgart inspired the judges to comment:
“In the updated 911 Carrera S, Porsche has taken a great car and made it better. Quicker than the version it replaces, the new 911 is also more powerful more of the
time…it’s comfortable on long journeys, sure-footed on B-roads and in the wet and more fun than a summer’s worth of rollercoaster rides…”
In addition to scooping the top award, the 911 also placed first in the Sports Car category. Furthermore, the Boxster Spyder, Cayman coupe, and the Macan compact SUV each received commendations in their respective categories.
For over 50 years, the Porsche 911 has been acclaimed as one of the world’s benchmark sports cars. With such illustrious history, the introduction of a new model is always highly anticipated and the latest generation unveiled last September at the Frankfurt Motor Show is no exception.
