Midsize Premium Sporty Car: Porsche 911

Porsche also claimed top honors in the Midsize Premium Sporty Car segment with its popular 911 model. Following in its footsteps was the Jaguar F-Type. There’s no confusing the 911 with any other sports car in the world, a nameplate that has been carrying the tradition of Porsche for decades. The latest iteration has a plethora of models to choose from with the 911 Carrera powered by a 3.4-liter six-cylinder engine with 350 hp and 287 lb-ft of torque. There is of course the 911 Turbo that comes with 520 hp and 487 lb-ft of torque, but if that doesn’t satisfy you, the Turbo S provides 560 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy across the various 911 models range from 15 mpg in the city (GT3) to 19 mpg in the city (Carrera) and 20 mpg on the highway (GT3) to 27 mpg (Carrera). The Turbo and Turbo S gets a respectable 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.

    From my past observation, J.D. Power is a very dubious and manipulative auto research company. It seems any automaker can pay the company for better publicity in a timely J.D. Power study report. Yeah, J.D. Power uses data from consumers, but how does it get the data, how does it process the data, and is its data subject to public auditing ? No one knows, except J. D. Power itself , because J.D. Power owns and operates its Secret Magic Black Data Box Machine in the name of scientific data-based research.

    In general, consumer report in auto quality publishing is way more objective and trustworthy

    Both are superficial representations of actual vehicle quality.

    Consumer Reports is a much more reliable source for information.

    Actually no, Consumer Reports is actually reports from consumers and can not be bought ….

    Well you are talking about superficial representation, which I think is as far as a data-based study/report can go, but I’m here talking about Hoax.
