It is an understandable question considering the amount of state-of-the-art Porsche 911 versions that are available for purchase as new vehicles not to mention endless second-market offers.

Currently, Porsche has 22 versions in the 911 lineup. Which is the best? Let’s figure out.

The Best in Performance vs Price Ratio – Porsche 911 GT3

$130,400 may seem a lot for a single vehicle but it’s a decent investment in this case. You will get a car capable of breaking the 60 mph threshold in 3.3 seconds with a further acceleration to devil-may-care 195 mph. If you want the best performance for the money, the Porsche 911 GT3 has to be your choice.

The Best in Fuel Efficiency – Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

While the fuel efficiency isn’t essential for sports cars, some of them are still more fuel-efficient than others. The Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet estimates 21 MPG in city and 28 MPG on the highway making it one of the most fuel-efficient sports cars that are running on gas. It is twice more fuel-efficient than the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster, for instance.

The Best in Speed – Porsche 911 Turbo S

The new 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S is a killer on the road. It accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in mind-blowing 2.8 seconds and still costs a reasonable price for such a furious and good-looking car (you have to be a real Porsche fan to spot the external difference with the previous 911 Turbo incarnation, though). It is one of the fastest cars on the planet.

The Best in Design – Porsche 911 Targa 4

Porsche knows how to make cars astonishingly beautiful. Its recent ‘Targa’ looks very enthralling and modern despite the fact that this car body style is rather old-fashioned. You will have all passers-by attention in any Porsche but this one is the pure extravagance.
