Porsche's 911 continues to evolve, fundamentally so back in 2015 when the seventh generation '991'-series model was updated with a switch to turbocharging for the entire Carrera-series Coupe and Cabriolet line-up. The result was not only vastly improved efficiency but even more power and torque. Was all of this delivered though, without dilution of the magical experience that's served this model line so well for so long? And if you'd like a 911 Carrera-series model from the 2015-2018-era, which one will suit you best? Rear or four wheel drive, coupe, soft top, business express or race refugee? Here's where we find out.
So turbo power didn't spoil the '991'-series 911 Carrera models. The six cylinder twin turbo unit turned out to be efficient, yet sonorous and gloriously tractable. Plus the interior of this post-2015-era model was more up to date and the infotainment was brought up to scratch. In addition, like its predecessor, this 911 is practical and easy to use - and remains satisfying to drive in a way that rivals can't quite match.
Of course there are some downsides. It's certainly not the cheapest contender in the super sportscar class from this era. The result will be an asking figure that'll take it this car well clear of equivalent versions of the brand's Cayman model, a coupe some used to tell us was better to drive thanks to its mid-engined layout. That's no longer such an issue in the post-2015-era though, thanks to the way that the Cayman's switch into four cylinder power set this 911 back into its rightful place at the top of the company's sporting hierarchy. In summary, what we got here was a worthy evolution of the world's longest running sports car dynasty.
