Chris Harris Is Unsurprisingly A Porsche 911 Turbo Purist

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.


In Chris Harris’ new video over on, he reviews the refreshed 911 Turbo S, which is not the Carrera. But he does mention that he doesn’t think Porsche has got the new lowercase-t turbo 911 right, and urges you to spend the money on the actual capital-t 911 Turbo instead.

It’s funny, because he’s actually reviewing the 911 Turbo S, but complains that he can’t properly compare the difference between the old Turbo S and the new because Porsche brought him to one of the greatest racetracks in the world that just so happens to be at high altitude with shitty fuel.

Still, he does the thing with the sliding in a Porsche, and the film is as beautiful as ever. Go check it out over on if you like such things.

They should change the name to the 911 turbo Turbo. I’d buy it and park it next to the Ferrari LaFerrari.
