Today, if you want to buy a supercar that is equal parts fast, comfortable, and easy to drive, you have quite a selection to choose from. But that’s a recent luxury. Performance was always available but many fast cars had nonsensical seating positions, theoretical air conditioning, and reliability only a service center owner could love.
In those dark days of heavy clutches and oddly angled steering wheels, the Porsche Turbo was always an outlier. It was easier to drive, easier to see out of, and still kept up with the Italian competition.
The 2021 Porsche Turbo S carries that torch easily.
With each new generation of Porsche Turbo we think: “They can’t make it better than this.” Then they do. This car makes 60 more horsepower than the last one. The front brakes have ten pistons instead of six. Overboost mode sends 22.5psi of air into the 3.8-liter engine; three more than the outgoing car. It gives you all that along with all-wheel drive and a transmission that will outlast even the most stubborn cockroach.
