The 911 will turn 50 next year, but you could hardly tell her age by looking at her beautiful and athletic body. Porsche engineers have managed to keep this lady fresh and fit over the years by constantly massaging her body, suspension, drive train and interior.
Although the crafty Germans have moved the engine ever so closer to the centre of the car, it still remains a true rear-engine sports car. The new generation has a polished interior and a nicely sculpted body with the unmistaken 911 look.
The car has always enjoyed a reputation of a pure sports car, with the added bonus of being a competent daily driver. The all wheel drive versions add a bad-weather capability to the 911’s practicality and the lusty 400 hp of the Carrera’s flat six give her the legs of a sprinter.
There we have it: traditional, yet lusty. Practical, beautiful and always ready to play, no matter what the weather. Sounds like a perfect bride. Can you marry a car in Vegas?
