The 2022 Porsche 911 has broad appeal for a variety of shoppers

Few vehicles have a history as long and rich as the Porsche 911. Fewer are as recognizable today as when they debuted. That’s because the 911 stuck to its basic rear-engine layout and iconic shape and style, making it one of the most popular sports cars of all time. This eighth generation was redesigned in 2020, and for 2022, it gained a few new variants and features.

The GTS model returns to fill an optimal middle ground in the lineup, with an intoxicating blend of performance and refinement. At the top of the performance ladder, the GT3 also returns and represents a more track-focused alternative for speed junkies. Elsewhere, the 911 upgrades to a new infotainment system that finally supports Android Auto™. Remote self-parking also debuts for select models.

The 2022 Porsche 911 is one of the most well-rounded sports cars. In lower trim levels, it should be considered against the Chevrolet Corvette and BMW 8 Series, and on the high end, it can also match up with pricier exotics.

5 reasons to buy the 2022 Porsche 911

What We Like

Fast and relatively frugal engines: The base 911 Carrera will easily satisfy a desire for performance for most drivers. Its 379 horsepower is plenty for a car this small. Of course, there are more powerful models to consider, up to the 640-hp 911 Turbo S. Despite the impressive power, the 911 is surprisingly good on gas. It is capable of an EPA-estimated 21 mpg on the high end and an estimated 16 mpg for the most aggressive of models.

Sharp cornering abilities: Power is useless if you can’t control it. That’s why the 911 is considered one of the best-handling sports cars ever built. Its unique rear-engine layout makes it one of the quickest around a turn, all while delivering incredibly precise steering and loads of confidence. As you’d expect, handling ability keeps pace with the power increases throughout the lineup.

Suitable for a daily driver: On a scale with handling performance on one side and comfort on the other, the Porsche 911 somehow occupies a broad range of both. That could be attributable to the 911’s gradual evolution, as Porsche has fine-tuned and improved it over the decades. Whatever the case, any 911 model is suitable for a racetrack yet comfortable enough to handle your daily commute.

What Needs Improvement

Remains pricey in the used market: When most people think of Porsches, they think of performance and high prices. The cars, even on the pre-owned market, tend to remain out of reach for many budgets, which is a testament to the 911’s overall excellence and versatility. There are less expensive sports cars out there, but it is hard to re-create the total package that is the 911.
