Why Lease A Porsche 911?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
Where some rivals won’t even offer a 2nd pair of seats, the 911 can offer fun for all the family. The back seats are full-sized, though subjecting adults to long journeys in them would be a bit mean, and getting in or out of them requires some experience in escapology. An important point to note is that if you opt for the hardcore GT3 or GT3 RS variants, you lose those back seats.
With the engine in the rear, you lift the bonnet at the front to reveal the 911’s boot. There’s a good amount of space, though some front-engined rivals do offer more. A total of 135 litres offers room enough for a few weekend soft bags but not a pair of full-sized suitcases, limiting the car to a weekend away rather than proper holiday transport. That boot drops a little to 125 litres if you opt to lease a 4-wheel-drive version of the 911, in order to accommodate front driveshafts.
Porsche’s official fuel economy figures range from 21mpg for the juiciest GT3 model to 30mpg for the most efficient Carrera trim. Cabriolet, 4-wheel-drive and more aggressive Carrera versions use more fuel from there, through to the full-fat Turbos at around 25mpg.
In our experience, a carefully driven rear-drive Carrera of any kind should return an indicated 30mpg on a motorway run. Small petrol family cars were doing that in the early 2000s, so that’s quite impressive given the performance that’s on offer.
As for running them? Well, the name Porsche comes with associated steep servicing costs, though the extensive dealer network will be able to offer a variety of service plans.
911 CoupeThe Coupe is a 2-door model, with 2- or 4-seat (2+2) options.
911 TargaTarga models add an elaborate removable roof panel for semi-open top motoring.
911 CabrioletCabriolet models have a full folding fabric roof, which makes them more ‘open’ than the Targa.
The Porsche 911 Vs Competitors
Depending on which version and how you define supercar, yes and no. The Turbo S is faster than many supercars and has all the technology you would expect, but doesn’t boast the bravado and exotic style you might expect.
Yes. The only Turbo-based 911s to be rear-wheel drive are the limited-edition GT2 models, and there’s no GT2 version of the current 911… yet.
No, not yet. Though as the 2030 ban on the sale of pure petrol and diesel cars looms, we can at least expect it to go hybrid by then, and fully electric by 2035.
