A fascinating thing about the 2011 Porsche 911 Turbo is like most other drivers on the road they look glamorous sun Yes, there is a small group of people who see the car at a stoplight and nod their respect. But by and large, most people look at the “Porshe” as to whether to reconsider and go back to what they’ll scarf down for dinner that night dreams.
Meanwhile, sitting right at arm’s length from one of the most powerful cars on the street in the world has ever known. Packing a 500-horsepower 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat Six to 480 ft-lbs of torque in the tail, the performance of the Porsche Turbo is fully equivalent to slightly more flamboyant Ferraris or Lamborghinis can muster. With £ 3,500, only the fastest acceleration of all-wheel drive Porsche in history, and one of the highest in this respect, cars in general, the 911 Turbo at the position over a 3.2 seconds 0-60 time and imposed 194 mph top.
Benefit from the launch control system, as Porsche engineers carefully built into the pressurized 911 ridiculously simple. With the left foot on the brake and right foot flooring the accelerator, the speed stays at 5000 rpm and a maximum brake. The turbo four wheels than scrabble for a moment, looking for support. When she, the diminutive coupe blast forward bite like a jet in full afterburner. The seven-speed dual-clutch transmission slams from shifts in less than .5 of one second, with absolutely no interruption in the forward motion. Accelerated inexorably, the Porsche just keeps going faster and faster and faster, as long it away for him. But instead of feeling cumulative, as the car gathers speed feels more like leaps.
When it comes to the curves of the turbo appears right in the top flat and catapulted to the next corner. His attitude is surprisingly neutral curves for a car whose engine is literally behind the rear wheels. In fact, you’re hard pressed to say where the engine in the car, if you long difficult. If you do that, the back gently. If you care where you, select a bit in the opposite lock and the car will rocket forward again at her new job.
Because the all-wheel drive, the Turbo’s steering feel is not as lively as, say, the 911 GT3. It is still very communicative. You always know what the front wheels and where they pointed. The brakes are so easily modulated pedal reacts like a dial. Gradually in the desired amount of food shortage, the system responds with exact precision. The gearbox is art so accessible in the right gear you faster, they in their silent mode when you could ever have. Punch the Sport button, the sharper throttle response (!) And the gears longer in the aisles. Go to the Sport Plus button, the car in full race mode and the engine winds up to redline, screaming their lungs out if you leftovers from corner to corner. The sound is so intoxicating your heart faster than the engine. And the engine is good for 7000 rpm rpm.
As dazzling as it all is behind the wheel of the luxurious Grand Tourer Holidays as a rough sports cars. Leather everywhere, the turbo deluxe interior is straight. The seats are very comfortable, the instrumentation is legendary in the readability and all modern conveniences and comfort are fully effective. Entry and exit are easy, it makes the car feel almost commonplace. The seating position and steering wheel adjust, so finding the right position in a snap. The Porsche 911 Turbo is a car that appeals to your emotions, like doing your senses.
