5. 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe

Base Price: $96,300

The 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe is a large step up from the Lexus and its competitors – and not just in price. In terms of performance, the 911 Carrera 4 Coupe operates at a much higher level. Directly descended from over half a century of successful 911 racecars, the current model proudly displays its heritage – not just in how it looks, but in the way it drives!

The 911 Carrera 4 Coupe is powered by a 3.0-liter, 370-hp six-cylinder engine, paired with your choice of a 7-speed manual or 7-speed PDK automatic transmission. Zero to 60 mph arrives in just 4.3 seconds. The all-wheel drive system incorporates Porsche Traction Management for better grip.

Inside, the 911 Carrera 4 Coupe has a 2+2 layout. The leather-trimmed, 4-way powered sport seats are very comfortable, but the rear seats are best used for storage.

The 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe is a driver’s car, pure and simple. The reason you buy this car is to drive it. The Porsche will grab the road and never let go. Wouldn’t it be great to be along for the ride?
