You, like many others, probably spend a lot of time drooling over Porsches—new Porsches, old Porsches, rare Porsches, modified Porsches and the whole lot of them. If that’s true, you may also have an idea of which ones are the hardest to get your hands on. These are Porsche’s picks for that title.
Many people were not thrilled when Porsche revealed that the updated 911 Carrera would be getting some turbo action because it makes the actual 911 Turbo (capital T) less special or something. Chris Harris is among that camp, and says if you’re going to bother with the finance papers, get the actual Turbo.
You’re not going to win.
Very effective would be one way to sum it up. We called the Turbo S terrifyingly fast, Evo thinks it’s a force of nature. It also might just be the best all-rounder money can buy.

The Porsche 911 Turbo S has ten more horsepower and better traction than the Jaguar F-Type R Coupe thanks to its all wheel drive system. It also costs twice as much while not giving you any noise. Deal, or no deal?
[Here's me getting intimately acquainted with the air scoop of the new Porsche 911 Turbo S in the LA Auto Show underground parking garage last night. Things went downhill from there.]
You say there's an opportunity for yet another 997 variant? In China? That's gold, Jerry, gold! We'll take a Turbo S, paint it in gold with black wheels and sell ten of them for an outrageous price!
Want to go from 0-to-60 in 3.3 seconds and drive top-down at 196 MPH? Then you better display a significant case of male pattern baldness, because they won't sell you a 2011 Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet without it.
A one-of-a-kind 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S owned by Jerry Seinfeld just went on eBay, and it's the perfect gift for that Porsche fan who also loves observational humor.
