On duPontREGISTRY.com right now there are 39 different new and used Porsche 911 models available for sale. That’s almost double the amount of Porsche 911 models that are currently in the new lineup (21). The models offered on our website range from the furious GT3 RS to the rare 911 America Roadster.

With there being so many variants available, I decided to check out our analytics and see which of these models have received the most page views from Jan 1 – April 6, 2017. Below are the results from my research, showing in ascending order which models are the most looked at 911 models on duPontREGISTRY.com.

10. 911 Speedster

The original Porsche 911 Speedster was introduced back in the late 1980’s after enthusiasts essentially begged for it. The first prototype was unveiled at the 1987 Frankfurt Motor Show. The Speedster is not being created anymore, meaning fans of the car are searching for them left and right.

9. 911 Carrera 4S

The 911 Carrera 4S has all-wheel drive that makes it an extremely competent car around corners when compared to a rear-wheel drive model. The current 2017 models come with 420 horsepower and a 0-60 mph time of just 3.8 seconds with the PDK transmission.

8. 911 GT2

Unfortunately, Porsche does not currently have a GT2 in their lineup, but they did for many years. Even though it was based on the 911 Turbo, the 911 GT2 was lighter and more powerful, making it a very sought after model.

7. 911 GT2 RS

Porsche introduced the 911 GT2 RS variant in 2010 as an upgraded version of the GT2. It came with 612 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque on tap. Production of the 911 GT2 RS was limited to 500 units worldwide when it was revealed, making it a hard find in the marketplace.

6. 911 Targa 4S

The 911 Targa was revived in 2014 with the Targa 4 and Targa 4S models. It features an electric cabriolet roof, as well as all-wheel drive. Many are picking up this car for nostalgia purposes as it harks back to the classic Targa. Will this model stick around in the lineup? Only time will tell.

5. 911 Carrera GTS

In January 2017, Porsche announced that their 911 GTS lineup would be entirely turbocharged. The 911 Carrera GTS is RWD and offers an exciting drive.

4. 911 R

The Porsche 911 R was limited to just 991 examples, this model is one of the hottest 911s on the market. It comes with a six-speed GT Sport manual transmission and an extremely light weight that makes it a Porsche purist’s dream car. Getting one of these when they first came out was tough considering they were already sold out before delivered.

3. 911 GT3

Named after the FIA Group GT3 class, the 911 GT3 is a high-performance model that has been around since 1999. The current model is lightning quick with a 0-60 mph time of just 3.2 seconds.

2. 911 Turbo S

Many think of the 911 Turbo S as the quintessential sports car. With a powerful turbocharged engine (540 hp in the current model) and the classic styling we all know and love, it doesn’t get any better than this.

1. 911 GT3 RS

First introduced in 2003, the GT3 RS is a more track-capable version of the already excellent GT3 model. The RS in the model name actually stands for RennSport, which translates to “racing sports” in English.
