2014 Porsche 911 Overview

Is the 2014 Porsche 911 a Good Used Car?

The 2014 Porsche 911 is available in three body styles: coupe, cabriolet (convertible), and targa (partial convertible). It is one of the best options among used luxury sports cars, boasting a perfect reliability rating, exhilarating driving dynamics, five powerful engines, and a luxurious interior that puts the focus on the driver. The 911's only notable con is its small trunk.

Used 2014 Porsche 911 Performance and Interior

The rear-wheel-drive, rear-engine 2014 Porsche 911 Carrera is powered by a 350-horsepower six-cylinder engine that supplies rapid acceleration. Though most drivers should be pleased with the base engine’s power, some may prefer the stronger six-cylinder engines ranging from 400 to 560 horsepower. A seven-speed manual transmission comes standard, but its gates can make selecting the correct gear difficult. The available smooth-shifting seven-speed automatic transmission is the better option. With the automatic transmission, the 2014 911 Carrera gets up to 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, which is typical for a luxury sports car.

The 911’s exceptional handling is one of its best attributes. The Porsche offers keen steering, powerful brakes, and excellent composure through tight corners. Its ride is also well-balanced between comfortable and firm.

The Porsche 911 has a 2 + 2 seating arrangement (two up front and two in the back). The rear seats are too small even for children, so they’re best used for storage. The 911’s driver-focused cabin features superb fit and finish and handsome accents. Tall occupants will have plenty of space in the front seats. The 911 has one of the smallest trunks in the class: just 4.76 cubic feet.

Standard features include a 7-inch touch-screen display, navigation, Bluetooth, and a USB port. Buttons on the center stack are logically arranged. The touch screen, however, takes some getting used to. The available navigation system is also more challenging to program than rivals’ systems.

Should I Consider Another Used 911?

The 2014 Porsche 911 is part of the car's seventh generation, which launched with the 2012 model year. The base 2014 Porsche 911 Carrera is mostly the same as the 2012 and 2013 base models, so you may want to opt for an earlier model to save some money. A number of models beyond the base, however, were redesigned for 2014. These include the Turbo, Turbo S, and Targa. A 50th Anniversary Edition was also released for the 2014 model year.

Which Used Porsche 911 Is Right for Me?

The 2014 Porsche 911 has a wide range of trims to consider. The best way to decide is by first choosing from six engine configurations. The following models each come with a flat-six engine: Carrera (350 horsepower), Carrera S, Carrera 4S, Targa 4S (400 horsepower), and 50th Anniversary Edition (430 horsepower). The top-of-the-line Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S models feature twin-turbocharged flat-six-cylinder engines that produce 520 and 560 horsepower, respectively. Carrera, Carrera S, GT3, and 50th Anniversary Edition models have rear-wheel drive, while all other models come with all-wheel drive.

The base 911 comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control, a nine-speaker audio system, and the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system, which includes a 7-inch touch-screen display, navigation, Bluetooth, and a USB port.

Each trim level is available with a few additional features, including a Bose or Burmester sound system, satellite radio, and HD Radio. Cabriolet models have a power-operated convertible top, while Targa models come with a power-retractable center roof panel.

Porsche also offers CPO models. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Porsche extends the original new-car warranty to six years or 100,000 miles. If the CPO vehicle is past its original new-car warranty term (four years/50,000 miles), Porsche will cover the CPO vehicle for two years or 50,000 miles – though Porsche places total mileage limits on this warranty. Each CPO Porsche must pass a 111-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Porsche warranty page carefully.

2014 Porsche 911 and Other Cars to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Porsche 911 or 2014 Porsche Cayman?

Like the 911, the Porsche Cayman offers a perfect reliability rating, comfortable front seats, a good-looking cabin, and thrilling driving dynamics – thanks in part to its midengine setup. The Cayman's base engine isn't quite as powerful as the Cayenne's. However, a little less horsepower is worth the five figures you would save purchasing the Cayman over the 911.  

Which Is Better: 2014 Porsche 911 or 2014 Chevrolet Corvette?

The Chevrolet Corvette is a more practical option for everyday driving. It has a brawny V8 engine, agile handling, and a comfortable ride. It only seats two, but it offers more trunk space than the 911. It also comes with more standard features, including push-button start, Bluetooth, three USB ports, and Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system with an 8-inch touch-screen display.
