Total 911’s top seven water-cooled Porsche 911s of all time

Some Porsche 911 enthusiasts decried the move away from air-cooling in 1998 however, from the 996 generation to the latest 991-type 911s, Zuffenhausen has proved that water-cooling can still produce awesome sports car, as these superb seven prove:

7) Porsche 996 Turbo with X50

As the first water-cooled production 911 Turbo, the 996 Turbo helped to modernise the forced-induction Porsche platform. With the optional X50 Powerkit (the same as the Turbo S), the Turbo becomes an exciting all-rounder, especially in manual form, and currently available at sensible money.

6) Porsche 991 50 Jahre Anniversary

Normally the Carrera models are outshone by their more illustrious Turbo and GT3 cousins however, the 50 Jahre Anniversary Edition is one of the most special water-cooled 911s we’ve ever driven. Porsche really made an effort with this particular anniversary model, adding the widebody and numerous retro touches.

5) Porsche 996 GT3 Mk2

This list could easily have been populated with 911 GT3s and their Rennsport derivatives but, if we had to chose just one of these ‘racers for the road’, the second generation 996 GT3 stands out. With improved handling compared to the Mk1 (and arguably better looks) the 996 GT3 Mk2 is also the most affordable GT3 currently available.

4) Porsche 997 GT2 RS

Will Porsche ever build a car like the 997 GT2 RS again? It looks doubtful with rumours that the 991 will be bereft of even a standard GT2 variant. The GT2 RS is the fastest production 911 ever built, with a formidable reputation thanks to its 620bhp transferred purely to the rear wheels through a manual gearbox.

3) Porsche 997 Carrera GTS

The Porsche 997 Carrera GTS is quickly rising to the status of modern classic and, like the 991 Anniversary Edition, it is easy to see why. With its mix of centre-lock RS Spyder wheels, Carrera 4 body shell, as well as Powerkit as standard, the GTS is one of the best 911 all-rounders ever.

2) Porsche 991 Turbo S

The latest 911 Turbo S is one of Porsche’s finest technological feats. It is supremely comfortable yet still maintains a devastating turn of pace. The mandatory PDK gearbox enables timewarping acceleration, while the 991 Turbo S’s chassis provides prodigious grip, making even average drivers feel excellent.

1) Porsche 997 GT3 RS 4.0

As this list wore on, you probably assumed this would be the car at number one. Produced in limited numbers, the 997 GT3 RS 4.0 stretched the legendary ‘Mezger’ flat six to its limits and, with a number of motorsport-inspired touches, the last Porsche 911 GT3 RS was easily the best. It’s legendary status is already guaranteed.

Porsche 911 anniversary editions: a celebration of Porsche

The Porsche 911 has been on some journey. A monumental half-century of production has seen more than 820,000 models leave through the front doors at Zuffenhausen and Weissach and delivered all over the globe.

What’s more, the race cars leave the latter accounting for over 20,000 race victories – and counting, as our new columnists and Porsche racing drivers Nick Tandy, Ben Barker and Josh Webster will tell you.

Among the plethora of racing disciplines that the 911 has conquered – as documented in our feature back in issue 107 – Ferry Porsche’s darling sports car has enjoyed a throng of special variations coming to market along the way, with a host of models propelled into the halcyon realms of popularity soon after.

Porsche 964 30 Jahre

Just cast your mind back over stellar flat-six sports cars like the 911S, Carrera RS and the early 911 Turbo, to name but a few. On top of that, there have been myriad special editions to whet the appetites of even the most eloquent Porsche connoisseurs.

Think the 911 Speedster, 930 LE, 930 SE, 997 GT3 RS 4.0, 997 Sport Classic – the list is endless.

And yet, with such a decorated tapestry lavishing this sports car’s history, Porsche has kept to task in marking this peerless 50th anniversary of production in the best way possible: with a new 911.

Porsche 996 40 Jahre

Much like the 30th anniversary in 1993 and the 40th in 2003, Zuffenhausen has produced a special edition of the current 911 to celebrate another decade of existence.

And so to our photoshoot with the three anniversary 911s, 2,000 feet above sea level in the heart of the Lake District. The temperature has dipped below freezing and the relentless Northern gales are hammering at the otherwise picturesque landscape.
