Porsche 911

Porsche’s 911 super car comes in 4-flavors for the 2007 model year: Carrera, Carrera S, GT3 and Turbo. Both the Carrera and Carrera S are available in coupe and convertible body styles, as well as rear or all-wheel drive. For the ‘07 model year, changes include standard tire pressure monitoring technology and the availability of new optional wheels. A 325-horsepower, 3.6-liter flat six-cylinder engine propels the Carrera Coupe to 60 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds, while the Carrera Cabriolet needs 5.0 seconds to achieve the same speed. Both models are capable of reaching 177 mph. For more muscle, the GT3 creates 415 ponies and rockets from 0-to-60 mph in an amazingly quick 4.1 seconds, and the 911 GT3RS elevates accelerates to 4.0 seconds. Porsche’s ultimate 911 Turbo generates 480 horses via its twin-turbocharged 3,6-liter six banger, and zooms to 60 mph in a microscopic 3.7 seconds. Exotic options include race-bred ceramic disc brakes, a navigation system and a Sport Chrono package.
