Of course, the Turbo version has enough appearance distinction to stand out among the ‘normal’ Elfers. Issues such as a rear spoiler visible in the rest position, air intakes for the rear wheels and a bumper (spoiler) equipped with extra large cooling slots point out superpowers. The 19-inch Turbo design rims with extremely wide rubber around it and behind (in this case red-colored) hefty calipers also refer to more sportiness. After all, what is power without grip and stopping power?
And yet we cannot say that the 997 Turbo is a cry for attention. As if the machine has enough confidence to know what it is capable of, the factory has poured it into a Basalt Black bath. Does that make the Porsche more exciting? No, but all the more suitable for everyday use. And who doesn’t want to drive here every day …?
Interior & equipment
Also inside the Porsche 997 no reason to be distracted by unorthodox colors or other craziness. In that respect it is a real German: business-like and of absolute top quality. But behind all that business black leather is groundbreaking technology hidden. For example, the 911 Turbo with Tiptronic S has Adaptive Sport seats to keep occupants in line when the gas is going well. Talking about that: the Sport Chrono Pack Plus package challenges you to go that little bit harder the next timed lap. Cruise Control keeps you under control on public roads. Neither is there a lack of comfort: seat heating, Bose audio and an electric sliding / tilting roof contribute to a wonderful driving experience without exceeding the speed limit.
Technology & performance
The sportier Tiptronic S transmission in the 997 Turbo has the challenge to transfer 480 horses smoothly and quickly to the rear wheels. At the basis of this is a 3.6-liter boxer engine with 6 cylinders attached to the ventilator. The difference with competitors: where many other supercar lose emotion as soon as the word ‘turbo’ falls, enthusiasts for a Porsche with Turbo in the type designation extra warm. And that is not without reason: 0-100 km / h is possible within 3.7 seconds. The top speed of this Porsche 911? No less than 310 km / h! Time to reveal color, because nobody can ignore the qualities of this model!
