When it comes to sports cars, it doesn't get more iconic than the Porsche 911. The model has a long and respected pedigree, but at the current six-figure price tag, it's a sure bet that most owners aren't on a budget. That's a good thing because with a top speed of 196 mph, Porsche owners might rack up a few speeding tickets.

While this iteration of the 911 retains the model's classic look inside and out, Porsche has made some adjustments. In the dash just behind the wheel, drivers will find the classic analog engine gauges. But a center console holds the Porsche communication management system with a 6.5-inch touch screen, GPS navigation, and optional electronic log book and voice controls.

Buyers can choose from a handful of colors and interior designs.

In terms of driving safety, Porsche's traction management and torque vectoring systems give the driver greater control and a safer ride in changing driving scenarios and under poor road conditions.
