Dealer Reviews Supercars Porsche 911 911 (991) - (2012) Turbo S 3.8 (560 Hp) AWD PDK

The perfect daily supercar...


Summary

Mind blowing performance!! That's what 24 hours in this 911 Turbo S gave me. Going straight or around a corner seemed to make absolutely no difference. This car stayed in its lane on apparently on its rails. The car had ceramic carbon brakes so stopping was a surefooted as being on the move. Couple of of that with a 4 wheel drive system and viola, the perfect mix. The great thing about this car is, despite having all of that performance, this was actually a very nice and comfortable place to be. Sure, its small on the outside, but they have managed to keep the cabin comfortable, and surprisingly spacious. The driving position is amazing too. Its clear that someone has done their homework on this one. Spot on Porsche! The rear seats are near useless, but if that's a problem for you, this is not the car for you... Although I would only stray as far as the Panamera, but that's one for my next review! The boot space is adequate, given the car, and you can expect to get 2 bags in for a weekend away. Oh and the rear seats fold down, so you can get a little more storage space there too.

So ultimately, the Turbo S is on top of its game. Its every bit the everyday super car that its always been, and somehow the folks at Porsche have managed to keep that formula going model after model for every! I don't see this car dating any time soon and the tweaks are just icing on an awesome cake.

Would I recommend it? YES
