Porsche 911 Turbo S: First drive review

Porsche 911 Turbo S

Nice driving review here of the Porsche 911 Turbo S. Enjoy!

We can assure you that the changes are effective. Throttle response is even quicker, and the engine pulls more strongly at high rpm. It is also louder, which underscores the nature of this beast. The altogether slight but noticeable performance gain translates into hard numbers. Porsche says 60 mph comes in 3.1 seconds for the coupe and 3.2 seconds in the cab, 0.1 second quicker than its estimations for the respective versions of the regular Turbo. We’ve already clocked a Turbo coupe sprinting to 60 mph in a downright blistering 2.9 seconds, so it seems Porsche is being its usual underestimating self. We figure the S will match our 0–60 time for the Turbo and improve by about a tenth in the quarter-mile, to 10.9 seconds.
