1. 2012 Porsche 911
Germany’s biggest car show. And the most well-known and important sports car ever made. How could an all-new Porsche 911 be anything but our Number 1 car of the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show.
Carrera models get a more powerful 3.4-liter flat-six engine with 350-hp, while Carrera S versions come with a 400-hp 3.8-liter flat-six, which when equipped with a PDK and the Sport Chrono package can hit 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds!
But the new 911 is more than just upgraded engines. In fact, it’s better in ever way. Four inches longer and one inch lower to the ground it’s longer and sleeker looking. It also weights 100 lbs less, gets some high-tech fuel saving technology, and even has a significantly more luxurious interior.
And if all that isn’t enough to convince you that a much improved version of this amazing sports car should be the number one spot. Then perhaps this will. For the new 911, Porsche developed the world’s first 7-speed manual transmission.
