Email   small font medium font large font

This morning Porsche AG, Stuttgart, received the award “Best Automobile in the World” in the Cabriolet category for the Porsche 911. Almost 95,000 readers of the German specialist journal “auto motor und sport” voted the open Carrera into first place among a field of 49 other cabriolets, roadsters and spiders.

Thus the Porsche 911 Carrera has continued a unique tradition. In the magazine’s series of 32 readers’ prize awards since 1977, the
Porsche 911 and its model variants Turbo and 911 Cabriolet have gained a total of 37 overall victories. On the occasions when it did not quite make it to the summit, the Porsche 911 occupied second place, mostly just behind other Porsche models such as the 959 or the
Carrera GT.

With the title of “Best Automobile in the World“, following its winning of the “Autozeitung” Auto Trophy in November in the categories “Best Sports Automobile” and “Best Cabriolet over 30,000 Euro”, the Porsche 911 has gained the most important publicly-voted awards of German speaking specialist journals for the autumn / winter season 2007/2008.
