As guaranteed as death and taxes is that every iteration of today’s Porsche 911 is ridiculously quick, has gobs of grip, and stops like someone dropped a concrete wall in its path. The slowest model we’ve tested, the 370-hp Carrera with the manual transmission, smoked to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds flat. That’s the base 911. The rest of the “entry-level” Carreras—those lacking ...
