Porsche 911 Turbo S
The 911 Turbo S is still a stupefyingly fast supercar. This next evolution of the breed ensures the future of Porsche’s high-performance luxury coupe is protected.
Headline figures of 572bhp (20bhp more than before) and a colossal 750Nm of torque produced from 2,250rpm mean the 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat-six engine delivers the goods. It’s not as effervescent in the engine bay as its rivals, but wind up the 911’s motor and the sustained surge is intoxicating.
Officially, 0-62mph comes up in a conservative 2.9 seconds courtesy of launch control and a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch gearbox. But even Porsche’s engineers claim 2.6 seconds is the quickest they’ve seen in testing. It’ll romp on to a top speed of 205mph, with gear changes hardly affecting the engine’s rampant acceleration.
