2015 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Coupe

Pros: Impeccable build quality; surgically precise driving experience; broad range of model offerings and options

Cons: Steep prices skyrocket even higher as options are added; cozy, low-slung cockpit can make entry and exit difficult; road noise

CG Says: The Porsche 911 lineup grows for 2015 with the addition of GTS models. Available in coupe or cabriolet form (and with or without all-wheel drive), the GTS comes standard with 430 horsepower and various high-performance upgrades. It slots between the S models and the race-track-focused GT3. In any of its many forms, the Porsche 911 is an absolutely thrilling car to drive. Precise handling, exceptional craftsmanship, and intoxicating engines are all hallmarks. Unfortunately, so are stratospheric prices. Few automobiles of any stripe, though, can blend daily-driver livability and supercar handling the way the 911 can.
