2014 Porsche 911 Overview
- 13 varieties available for 2014
- Iconic shape and rear-engine setup
- Seven-speed manual or PDK dual-clutch automatic
No family of vehicles is more associated with high-performance than the 2014 Porsche 911.
The latest 911 has been classified the 991 generation by Porsche, seemingly a backwards step from the outgoing 997. There was a lot riding on this redesign for Porsche as they attempted to modernize many of the 911’s components, while still maintaining the close relationship between driver and road that previous generations had enjoyed and by all accounts, they have succeeded. The latest 911 ditches the older hydraulic steering setup for an electro-mechanical power steering system that is more efficient, as well as a new seven-speed manual gearbox.
Since the 911’s redesign two years ago, Porsche has slowly unveiled and added new versions each year so the family is almost all back together. For 2014, the 911 Turbo and Turbo S models make their debut bringing the total number of 911 varieties for sale to 13.
The 911’s silhouette hasn’t changed much over the years and neither has its setup: rear-mounted engine with a horizontally opposed cylinder configuration over a rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive wheelbase. Carrera, Carrera Cabriolet, and Carrera 4 models get a 350-hp, 3.4-liter horizontally-opposed six-cylinder, while S variants get a slightly larger, 3.8-liter version that makes 400-hp. The performance focused 911 GT3 gets a variant of the 3.8-liter engine which has been tuned to 475-hp and numerous sporty upgrades. Stepping things up are the Turbo and Turbo S models (which also get their own Cabriolet versions as well). Turbo models add twin-turbochargers to the 3.8-liter engine which bumps output to 520-hp, while the Turbo S’ version of the same engine makes 560-hp. Transmissions choices include a new seven-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed “Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe”(PDK) dual-clutch automatic which gets our vote as the best automatic transmission available today.
