2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S: Most rewarding driving experience
It should not come as a surprise, but Motor Trend has chosen the new 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S as the Best Driver’s Car for 2012. The award by MT is given to the car with the most engaging and rewarding driving experience. With track-ready performance the all-new 911 Carrera S is a good choice. The new-generation 2012 Porsche 911 has been completely redesigned from the ground up. Those who have driven the new car say it is sexy and creatively different than the outgoing model.
There are many muscle cars out there that will go fast in a straight line, and a few Japanese boy cars that deliver neck-snapping acceleration, but the Porsche 911 Carrera S is about delivering an overall satisfying driving experience and it delivers in a big way. But of course, that kind of a rewarding driving experience doesn’t come cheap. The 2012 911 Carrera S has an MSRP starting at $96,400.
The Carrera S uses 3.8-liter flat-six making 400 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque, with launch times of 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 188 mph. But that is just a small part of the story. The all-new Carrera S gets new technology that makes the ride even more engaging for the driver.
