The Porsche 911 is a bit of love-it-or-hate-it affair. Some say it's the worst design ever imagined for a sportscar. Others point out that it's been smoothed to perfection over the course of decades. Whichever way you look at it, Porsche's engineers certainly don't rest from improving the formula, and this is their latest result: the 911 Turbo S.
There hasn't been a Turbo S in the 911 range for about five years now, and it's been fondly missed by Porschephiles. While the current 911 Turbo produces 500 horsepower, the new Turbo S trumps that with 530 – the same as the 911 GT2, only with four-wheel drive and a dual-clutch transmission. The result? 0-60 in 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 196 miles per hour. Available in both coupe and convertible form, the 911 Turbo S will be unveiled shortly in Geneva, after which it will go on sale across Europe starting in May with a base price of €145,400 for the coupe and €154,900 for the Cabriolet, both before taxes.
