If we had one Porsche to buy, it would be this 2011 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS. It takes you eight-tenths of the way to GT3 nirvana, but does so within a well-damped, impressively rapid, liquid-filled lozenge.

The Porsche 911 hasn’t lost its soul. I was among the first to actually drive the new generation Carrera S and — collective exhale — it is still a great car.

Every available crevice of this new 911 is stuffed with Porsche’s latest technology. These computers make driving more vivid, more precise and less of a hassle. This new 911’s time is now.

This new 911 may not turn out to be as timeless as previous cars to wear the name. But its time is now. This car knows more about driving than you do, so it helps you along.

The 2012 911 Carrera S is brazen, an athletic machine on 20-inch alloys. It’s Brooklyn Decker in a Hervé Léger bandage dress and Louboutin heels.

What makes the 911 Carrera exceptional is how it combines unprecedented performance and reasonable day-to-day livability with some of the visceral experience many sporty cars have sacrificed.

A hardtop is certainly the purer sport experience in any car, but the Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet convertible gives up little to its exceptional coupe sibling. For its combination of sportiness and open-air driving, its high price might be more justified.

Longer, lighter, quicker, roomier, and more fuel-efficient than its predecessor, the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S is an evolutionary masterpiece of speed, style, and technology. The S gets to carry the mantle as the one — the greatest all-around 911 ever.

The finale for the current-generation 911, the GTS blazes into the Porsche retail experience in the middle of this winter. The GTS buffs the 911’s perma-luster, with a corresponding jump in sticker price.

Staff Review MotorWeek 7.2 out of 10 2011 Porsche 911 Coupe

The 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is a rich man, or woman’s, toy. It’s the most race proven, non-turbo 911 performance that you can still hang a license plate on. And it’s also worth every penny.
