Motor Trend has named the 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S as its “Best Driver’s Car” for 2013. The Best Driver’s Car honor is decided after a yearly competition among the top new or improved performance cars available in the U.S. market. This is the second consecutive year that a 911 variant has won the award.
“The 911 Carrera 4S has terrific balance, telepathic steering, a potent engine, and a lightning quick transmission,” said Ed Loh, Editor-in-Chief of Motor Trend. “But what impressed our judges the most was the confidence and joy it delivered, on the street and at the track. Congratulations to the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, Motor Trend’s Best Driver’s Car for 2013.”
“This is a significant honor for our brand as we celebrate the 50th birthday of our 911 sports car this year,” said Detlev von Platen, President and CEO, Porsche Cars North America, Inc. “Being named Motor Trend’s Best Driver’s Car shows that our flagship car still has the same appeal it has had for 50 years.”
Each year, Motor Trend editors choose the car that most compels them to want to drive. Each contender is run through a series of instrumented performance tests, a 500-mile road trip highlighted by aggressive canyon driving on a closed course and finally, evaluation at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
