What’s it like?
Mind blowing. The bare performance figures – 0-to-62mph in 3.4sec, 0-to-100mph in 7.0sec and 193mph top speed – hint at something very special and better its predecessor in each case. But the way the 911 Turbo goes about its business almost defies conventional road car logic.
You’d likely find a more powerful and faster car over a wide and smooth surfaced race track. But on normal roads – the sort you and I encounter every day with varying surfaces, odd cambers and all variety of hidden surprises like those served up at the car’s launch in Portugal this week, I seriously doubt any rival – not even a Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari Enzo or Porsche Carrera GT – would come close to matching it for sheer pace or outright dynamic prowess for any length of time.
