2009 Porsche Ratings, Reviews and Awards

2009 saw one of the best 911 upgrades ever for Porsche, which created two completely new engines (and upgraded suspension, brakes, interior, exterior, and lighting) for the Carrera and Carrera S. Available in Coupe (3.6L engine and 345 hp), Cabriolet (3.8L engine and 385 hp), and S Coupe (same specs as Cabriolet), the 2009 911 excels thanks to its brand-new twin-clutch gearbox, the Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK). The PDK replaces the much disliked Tiptronic S and is a whopping twenty-two pounds lighter without being slower. In fact, the new PDK is as much as 60 percent faster when the 911 is outfitted in Sport Chrono Plus, as well as more fuel efficient. It also emits fewer emissions. Also of note in 2009 is the Cayenne SUV. While fuel economy and stiff handling still don't get an upgrade over 2008, drivers will appreciate new Turbo S trim on one of the few luxury SUVs that come with manual transmission as an option.
