Porsche 911 Turbo S – The Supermarket Supercar
Henry Catchpole of Carfection calls the Porsche 911 Turbo S (992) the ultimate supermarket supercar. By this, he means it can do everything that a supercar needs to do, but it can also work as an everyday car without any issues basically whatsoever.
The Porsche 911 Turbo S is an expensive machine, but as Catchpole points out, it doesn’t get the looks that a comparable McLaren or Ferrari would. The car simply looks too much like a good ole 911 from Porsche. Most people out there won’t even notice that it’s the Turbo S variant and therefore one of the most impressive cars in Porsche’s lineup.
Catchpole takes the car for a road and around town review pointing out all that is so very right with the car but also discussing where it lacks character or features that it should have.
From there, he takes it to a racetrack to showcase just how impressive this machine from Germany really is. The 911 Turbo S is a car that can handle a racetrack with ease and put down wicked fast lap times. However, Catchpole points out that for the money, you could likely get a better road car if you go down a bit in the Porsche 911 lineup. There is no denying the 911 Turbo S’s prowess, though.
