2016 2017 Porsche 911 legacy Review

As Porsche proudly boasts  as being the most popular sports car and one of the leading touring car, a look on the evolution of Porsche 911 would approve and rank it as such. Porsche 911 comes in 3 main categories: couple, GTR and convertible. Further classified into Carrera, Targa and Turbo models.

Porsche has seen gradual but steady upgrades in each release. Notable impacts of the upgrades evidently witnessed in improvements in fuel efficiency, greater power, speed and increased stability. Behind the scenes engineers did their work to lower fuel consumption, for instance, from the earliest Porsche 911 GTR RS  release which had 4.0 litre engine to the current 2017 Carrera Porsche 911 with 3.0litre engine.

It is also good to note that with Porsche 911, you have options to inter-change between 'normal' mode and 'sport' mode when the need arises. The main transmission is 7 speed gear manual shifting.

In the 2017 model, tremendous efforts have been made on the tech of 911 Carrera. A communication management system has been added  which has 7 inch multi-touch screen. When connected one can access traffic feeds and view street images through the communication system.

On the downside, 2017 Porsche 911  is heavier, a factor which most manufacturers want to keep at bay. However, despite the weight due to turbo chargers and inter-coolers, the 2017 Porsche comes with a new driving experience. More quieter but with greater power
