Profile

Evolutionary rather than revolutionary, the new 997 subtly improves on the very few weakness of the 996 to create what is probably the best 911 to date. To the relief of Porsche-philes everywhere, the 'fried-egg' headlights are gone, replaced with the popular rounded look of the 993. The overall design is sleeker (drag drops to just 0.29) while the interior has been upgraded to a high standard.

A new 3.8 litre flat-6 takes pride of place at the heart of the 997, pushing out over 350bhp is the 'S' model. Performance is marginally up on the 996, with 182mph max and 0-100 in around 10 seconds. Handling is sublime thanks to the new Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system of adaptive dampers, coupled with a new variable steering geometry that tightens the more it's turned. Braking is , as ever, unsurpassed, but be careful if considering the optional ceramic brakes - replacement costs are horrific!
