Porsche 911 Turbo S
Another 911, another set of impressive statistics. A top speed of 196 miles per hour is not quite enough to give the Turbo S top spot, however owners of this incredible machine should be comforted by their car’s superior 3.1 second 0-60 speed and clean design lines.
By way of comparison, the Turbo S is as fast to 60mph as the iconic McLaren F1 and sits just on the shoulder of the supercar when raced to 100mph.
In truth, the Turbo S is visually similar to previous 911 efforts and, in terms of engine improvement benefits only from relatively minor alterations rather than a full scale reimagining of a classic.
That said, the 2010 release wedged itself comfortably among the fastest vehicles ever to roll off the Porsche production line. This alone should be enough to earn the Turbo S total respect.
Will all of this in mind the $135,500 demanded by the manufacturer is neither surprising nor unwarranted.
