The Twelve 2011 911s
Porsche makes the most of its iconic sports car
Most of us think of the Porsche 911 as that rounded, rear-engine sports car we wish we could afford. Few, if any, realize the 911 represents a rather large and well-rounded lineup that offers a version for every sporting taste. In fact, there are a total of 21 models with prices ranging from $77,800 to $245,000. Of those 21 models, 12 can be viewed as distinctly different from the rest, either in power or body style, while the other nine are repeats of engines, body styles or drive systems. I’ve had the good fortune to drive several of these models. Let’s take a look at what makes each one different. When appropriate, I also add a few words to describe each driving experience.
