The 911 is Porsche's iconic rear-engine sports car, produced today in coupe and cabriolet versions that was updated for 2012. The 911 first went into production as the 1964 911 Carrera, as Porsche's first six-cylinder model and a replacement for the legendary Porsche 356. For 2004, a 40th Anniversary edition was offered and the Turbo Cabriolet and the Carrera 4S Cabriolet were added, the first time since 1989 that a Turbo Cabriolet was offered. The 2005 Carrera and Carrera S debuted the next generation of 911, an evolution of the original 911 silhouette, with a return to oval headlights with separate turn indicators. The Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S return for 2006. The 911 Turbo and GT3 is added to the 911 lineup for 2007.
The 2011 Porsche 911 adds the fastest Porsche production car ever, the 911 GT2 RS. The limited edition GT2 RS is powered by a 620-horsepower twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter 6-cylinder and is 154 pounds lighter than the previous GT2. Most 911 versions receive additional standard equipment including Bluetooth hands-free phone interface and an audio interface with connections for an MP3 player that can be controlled through Porsche's Communications Management system. New color options for 2011 include Platinum Silver Metallic, Ruby Red and Amethyst Metallic. To read more about the 2011 Porsche 911 Models, visit MSN Autos
