The Porsche 911 is one of the most respected and beloved sports cars among driving enthusiasts. Not only is a great option for drivers looking for their next sports car, but it also makes an excellent addition to anyone’s collection of already-owned vehicles.
That’s why purchasing one of these cars pre-owned can be a great value, and the 911 is one of the cars we often have in our used inventory here at our North Miami Beach, FL location at Prestige Imports. One drive behind the wheel and you’ll understand why the Porsche 911 came 5th in a poll to determine the Car of the Century, being the only sports car included in the top 5.
The 911 has an extensive history dating back to 1963. For most of that time, the 911s had air-cooled engines, but this changed to water-cooled from 1998 onward. Unless you’re a collector, the 911 models you’re likely looking for will fall under the water-cooled category. Many of the more modern versions of the 911 that you’ll see are in the 7th generation of the 911, referred to as the 991 (an internal designation that still refers to the 911). Standard 911 Carrera models swapped out the naturally aspirated engines for turbochargers during this time, beginning in 2016, resulting in superb performance compared to prior models. Yet, even models built before 2016 are still considered some of the finest sports cars around.
There is so much more to learn about the Porsche 911, its history and the many varieties of the car. So, once you’ve decided which model in our inventory you like, contact us at Prestige Imports. We would be happy to answer any and all questions that you have and set you up with a test drive.
