Interior

What is it like on the inside?

The 911 is probably the most rational sports car on sale. The buttons are laid out with extreme ergonomic precision, the cup-holders are perhaps the best-damped in the whole car world, while the classic 911 five-dial layout is not only iconic, but really easy to decipher.

As we mentioned earlier, the driving position is just spot on, and this is an easy car to see out of. A boring thing to point out, perhaps, but in the sports car world that’s pretty rare. Here’s a car where you could actually live without the parking sensors.

The infotainment system has gone through continual improvement and now comes with great iPhone link-up, and it’s one of the better integrations out there, with a voice command function that understands even the most complex of regional accents. We speak from experience…

The 911 may have lots of different rivals, but it’s still relatively unique in being a four-seater. Kids will easily slot in the back, as will smaller adults if they’re sitting behind people of similar height. Not all of the 911 range offers back seats – the Carrera T is a two-seater as standard, while the GT2 and GT3 models don’t offer back seats at all – but they compensate with loads of luggage space in the back. All 911s get a huge front boot (the engine’s in the back, don’t forget).
