2009 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S

The 911 remains a car apart, something unique in the automotive firmament. This latest version adds the new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, which is a sophisticated gearbox, one that requires a bit more familiarization than most in order to get the most out of it.

But the charm of the 911 is due to the things that are unchanged, like the incredible bark of the flat-six engine behind you, or the feel of the rear-biased chassis as it rounds a corner. The C4S version is hypnotically fast, but the price ($109,000, as tested) could give you a nosebleed.
