Supercars don't come more subtle or as easy to own as this. It's typically German; a sexy Italian may have more flair - but the compact 911 won't leave you stranded on the autobahn. This is the first time a 911 has used a water-cooled engine, losing some of its character but gaining more power instead. Turbo and GT3 models are very accomplished supercars that are virtually untouchable on road or track.
