New Porsche 911 Carrera S Named 2012 Motor Trend Best Driver's Car
Motor Trend has chosen the Porsche 911 Carrera S as its “Best Driver's Car for 2012.” This honor is decided after a yearly competition among the best new or improved performance cars available in the U.S. market.
Being named “Motor Trend Best Driver's Car” is a testament to the work of the men and women in Weissach and Zuffenhausen who are so passionate about designing and building our sports cars.
Motor Trend editors choose the car that most makes them want to head out to their favorite road and drive. To achieve this, each contender is run through a battery of dynamic tests, a 500 mile road trip, hard canyon driving on a closed course and finally, evaluation at the hands of professional driver Randy Pobst at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
All of that information is then distilled down by seven judges, and after careful consideration, a winner is declared. The test aims to go beyond the numbers, uncovering the one vehicle that offers enthusiasts the most engaging and rewarding driving experience possible.
The Porsche 911 Carrera S is currently being featured during Best Driver’s Car Week (August 20-24) on Motor Trend's website (www.motortrend.com) and YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/motortrend).
