2015 Porsche 911 Turbo S Review: Video Game Fast - XCAR
For those Porsche fans who missed out on the Porsche 918 Spyder or need something slightly more civilized for day to day commuting, you should check out the Porsche 911 Turbo S. It is Porsche's top of the range daily driver and the new 2015 model in true 911 Turbo S style, takes things to the extreme.
Make no mistakes about it, this is a mind-bogglingly fast car and more than any person could ever truly need. In the old days the Turbo was always an unweidly beast. The 911 Turbo celebrates its 40th birthday this year, so it's only natural that Stuttgart made a new one. In recent iterations (think 997 and 996 versions) have become relatively civilized performance cars, really leaving the GT3 to take up the hardcore Porsche duties.
So is this new the 2015 Porsche 911 Turbo S a lunatic and proud of it or a subdued super-cruiser?
XCAR has taken the time to review the Turbo S and they're view is that it is still a little nuts. Sure, the looks are still rather restrained compared to the older cars, but there's plenty to differentiate it from the everyday 991s. And, yes, then there's the comical speed of the thing, which in S form is 560 horses.
