The turbocharged 3.0 liter engine in road trim developed 260bhp with propelled the Turbo Carrera from and standstill to 100 mph in 14 seconds and resulted in a top speed of 155mph. Porsches first road going super car, this meant it was on par or faster that its contemporary’s in the day, the Aston Martins V8 Vantage, Ferraris 512 Berlinetta Boxer and Lamborghinis Countach, certainly excellent company. Legendary racing driver Paul Frere stated “It offers the finest blend of ultimate performance and refinement I have ever come across.
