Even when of more mature years, the Porsche 911 is a trouble-free companion. No matter whether it is seven, nine or eleven years old – in the latest Autobild TÜV report, the sports car icon was again the model with the fewest defects among all vehicles in its age group. The same as the year before, in each of the general technical inspections, the TÜV inspectors found the least grounds for complaint. Overall, the 911, Boxster and Cayman models occupied five of the ten best rankings across all age groups, which is once again impressive proof of the Zuffenhausen sports cars’ long term quality and ability to hold their value.
The Autobild TÜV Report is based on data from approximately eight million general technical inspections between July 2010 and June 2011. According to information from the Association of Technical Inspectorate Agencies, almost 18 per cent of seven year old vehicles, a good 22 per cent of nine year old vehicles and almost 27 per cent of all eleven year old vehicles exhibited such serious defects that they only received their TÜV certificate the second time around.
