Top 5 New Porsche Models Jun 8, 2017 by James (Driver Weekly)
Porsche has a well-earned reputation for producing luxurious vehicles with plenty of power in a small package. The key to its success seems to be limiting the lineup, offering just several main models, but preserving personalization with each model having an incredible number of trim levels and configurations. Auto enthusiasts are always trying to rank the best Porsches, but this can be all but impossible. Even with such a limited lineup, narrowing it down to the top five new Porsches proves a challenge. With that said, here are our picks for the top models from this luxury automaker with a history of high-powered vehicles.
Among luxury sports cars, the Porsche 911 typically takes the lead. The 2017 model year saw this vehicle get a facelift that included new engines and updated technology, all of which make it among the best new Porsches. As a sports car, the engine lineup is the most important part of the Porsche 911. The standard 3-liter twin-turbocharged 6-cylinder delivers 370 or 420 horsepower, depending on the model, with the GTS delivering 450 horses. Or you can upgrade to a 540- or 580-horsepower 3.8-liter twin-turbo or a 500-horsepower 4-liter.
As expected from a top Porsche, the interior of the 911 is downright luxurious with supportive and spacious front seats. While the rear seats are cramped, that is to be expected from such a small car. Leather upholstery comes standard, and you can get upgrades like 18-way adjustment, Alcantara upholstery, and ventilation. Available features like 12 speakers of Burmester or Bose sound and a sunroof complete this winning package.
