How much does the Porsche 911 cost to run?

The 3.0L petrol is the most economical Porsche 911 to run, taking into account insurance, tax and fuel efficiency. Compared to the competition in the Coupe segment, it’s the car that’s going to have the most negative impact on your monthly budget.

The Porsche 911 3.0L petrol costs £235.00 a year to tax, as it sits in tax band H.

It does just over 38 MPG on average, which means it will cost £15.00* in petrol every 100 miles driven.

In terms of fuel efficiency, it sits between the BMW 2 Series 1.5L diesel and the more thirsty BMW 4 Series 3.0L petrol.

The lower the insurance group, the cheaper a car should be to insure. This model is rated insurance group 47, which is lower than the Jaguar F Type 3.0L petrol, but higher than the BMW 4 Series 3.0L petrol. (If insurance cost is important to you then the BMW 2 Series has the lowest insurance group.)

Porsche 911: How big is the boot?

The Porsche 911 coupe has a bigger boot than the convertible (it can hold 213 litres of luggage with the seats up).

This allows the coupe to take one pushchair or one large bag. While the convertible takes just one large bag.

Worth knowing, the BMW 2 Series MPV is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and 3 large bags with its 560 litres.

Is the Porsche 911 easy to park?

The Porsche 911 is very middle of the road - it fills just over three quarters of a space. There are lots of wider cars, but just as many that are narrower and feel easier to park. For example, the MINI Coupe.

If you don’t park in the street that much, then the 911 is fine. It will go in to an average street slot, giving you a gap of 316mm to swing in and out. But if you street park a lot you may want to look at the MINI Coupe.
