The Porsche 911 has been honoured as the “2012 World Performance Car” at the New York International Auto Show.
The Porsche 911 won the award against strong competition. The choice was between 19 vehicles in all. A high-powered jury made up of 64 automotive journalists from 25 countries gave first place to the 911. The seventh generation of the sports car classic from Zuffenhausen celebrated its world premiere back in September 2011 at the IAA International Motor Show in Frankfurt.
Matthias Müller, President and Chief Executive Officer of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG said of the success of the Porsche 911: “The new 911 received its first award only a short time after it was launched in December 2011. Since then there have been many more.
