A lot of people think that if you’re big or tall than a Porsche 911 isn’t the car for you. It’s simply not the case. While some Porsches models, such as the early generation Boxsters, were a bit cramped for anyone taller than 6 feet, that’s changed drastically over the years.
My husband is 6′ 4″ tall and weighs in at a slim and trim 235 lbs. He fits into the new 911 easily. In fact, the last time we drove one he commented that he actually needed to move the seat forward in order to get the proper driving position. That’s why when I read earlier today that MSN had listed the 911 as one of their picks for the “Big and Tall” I wasn’t that surprised. With headroom of 38.8 inches and legroom of 45.8 inches, it’s significantly more roomy than a Corvette and beats out all other competitors in the legroom category (including the Cadillac Escalade).
