Nice road test here with the Porsche 911 Turbo. Enjoy!
The new twin-turbo horizontally opposed six-cylinder in the Turbo is a gem. On paper, it offers modest power and torque improvements over the old engine but, by the seat of the pants, it’s awe-inspiring.
Hit the accelerator and there’s only the slightest hint of hesitation before you’re slammed hard into your seat by the G-forces. It’s in everyday driving where the refinement to the turbo engine is most appreciated, with immense flexibility at any revs. The launch-control function – which comes with the optional Sports Chrono pack – is as easy to use as it is effective; simply press both the brake and accelerator, let the car rev to 5000rpm, lift off the brake and hang on.
