The seventh-generation 911 has greater mass appeal than before, yet without losing any of its thoroughbred character. We’d hesitate to use the word “flawless” in any review, so suffice it to say we’re massively impressed.

The new 911 ranks among the best cars we’ve ever driven. It’s confident yet benign, seriously quick but utterly manageable and radically capable, yet easy to drive.

The 911 Carrera S delivers supercar performance in a package that you’ll actually want to drive regularly. It’s good looking, comfortable, quiet, and yet it’s also capable of world-class speed and performance. Sounds like the best of both worlds.

For the money, it’s going to be difficult to find anything that comes close to the breathtaking performance and pure driving pleasure of the all-new 911 Carrera S.

If the standard coupe is the best all-around 911 ever, then the Cabrio is all that and then some, purists be damned. It’s so close in performance and feel to the coupe that few will notice the difference. Add in the slick-looking top that works better than ever and the allure is undeniable.

The new 911 Carrera S looks more dynamic. Redesigning an icon is tough work, and Porsche’s team has done a top job. The interior needed considerable freshening, and it got the works. It is also genuinely entertaining to drive and remains all but peerless in terms of its performance versus fuel economy balance.

When the time comes to drop some hard-earned bills on a fresh new whip, the Porsche 911 is at the front of the pack, while its engine is still in the back. And that’s a tradition Porsche is keen on keeping.

The new Porsche 911 cabriolet is hugely convincing. In fact, it’s hard to think of an open-top performance car with such a broad set of abilities—and such entertaining qualities.

We’ve never felt Porsche has gone too far with the 911 concept. We still don’t, really. But we do think the 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is very near the limit, because we don’t see what more can be achieved by loading up the 911’s rear-engine design with even more power.

Reinventing the 911 for a new generation is a difficult and often thankless task. But the engineers from Weissach have improvied on the seemingly unimprovable.

Demolishing its predecessor in both outright performance and its ability to let even novice drivers push it with ease, this is not just another 911 in a long line of the very best daily driven sports cars, it’s the very first in a line of daily driven exotics.
