Detailed Review

The king of the Nurburgring is some of the best qualities like blazing fast on a racetrack and still livable as an all-weather daily driver. It is a terrific sports luxury car and lives up to ts iconic heritage.

The Porsche 911 Turbo competes against flamboyant rivals such as Lamborghini Huracan, Audi R8, and Mclaren 600LT. The twin-turbocharged flat-six engine powering the Turbo is an evolution of the previous model and its instant throttle response means you'd be hard pushed to notice its turbocharged.

It’s a pretty hard decision to make the choices that you get with Porsche. The standard 911 Turbo is powerful enough and is all the sports car you'd ever need and it comes loaded with all features as well. However, if more numbers make you happier then you might as well shell out around $20,000 more for the Turbo S model and get yourself some more horsepower and torque.

Ride and Handling

It all starts with the very capable 3.8 liter twin-turbo boxer engine mounted in the rear surpasses performance capabilities. The 911 turbo scouts to 60 mph under 3 seconds but there is so much more than just mind-numbing speed. The 7 speed dual clutch transmission provides blazing fast shifts with racecar precision. There are various technologies derived from the track which are:

Porsche Stability Management (PSM): The PSM improves traction on wet surfaces when driving at the limits of performance using automatic brake differential and anti-slip regulation.

Porsche Traction Management (PTM): This active all-wheel drive system ensures power distribution with an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch between front and rear axle.

Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) : This active body system suppresses lateral body movement during cornering. It also minimizes the lateral instability of the vehicle on uneven ground.

Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA) : These system work according to the mode selected. The combination of adjustable front and rear spoiler adjust according to vehicle speed for optimum level of down force and helps in braking at high speed.

Sports Chrono package with MODE switch: This helps in tuning of the chassis, power delivery and transmission. There are four settings to choose which are Normal, Sport, Sport plus and Individual.

Rear axle steering: At lower speeds (upto 30 mph) the system steers wheel in opposite direction to the front wheel which in turn reduces the turning circle and steering at corners become dynamic. At higher speed (above 50 mph) the system steers wheels in the direction of front wheels for stable maneuver on highway.

Dynamic engine mounts increases stability and ride comfort. The chassis is very agile and offers high levels of stability. The weight distribution of the Porsche is 42% at the front and 58% in the rear due to its mid-engine design. Ride is firm but with the adjustable dampers you can find suitable adjustment. The steering is well weighted and the handling is terrific in any situation. The Porsche 911 can take corners with enthusiasm and make you feel like a race driver with virtually zero body roll. Cabin is well muffled but take it to the highways and you can hear the optional sports exhaust.

Braking

The stopping prowess is as important as engine performance so the 911 Turbo comes with ceramic composite brakes, which improves braking performance. Porsche comes equipped with 6-piston aluminum monoblock in the front and 4 piston in the rear.

The pedal travel is small and the bite is precise even under extreme loads. They are ventilated for better heat dissipation and are extremely consistent.. New 20-inch 911 Turbo\xa0S wheels have a central locking device technology derived directly from motor racing.

2019 Porsche 911 Turbo Interior

"Who knows but we suspect Porsche has smartly scrutinized the long-haul comfort of their seats. Surrounding those seats is a beautifully-styled and well-adorned cabin that nicely complements the shapely exterior."- KelleyBlueBook

Seating and Comfort

Complementing the uncluttered exterior design the cabin of 911 is direct and driver focused. You sit very low in the car and it is very easy to come in and out as compared to most of the rivals. There is plenty of room for taller individuals and rear seats are much suited for kids or to store belongings. The sloping hood and large windshield contributes great outward visibility but large B pillar block your view out to the rear.

Crafted from high quality material the cabin features clever technology and clear operating logic. Electronically adjustable seats offers high level of comfort and extra lumbar support for enthusiastic driving. The firm sporty padding of the side bolsters and additional shoulder supports provide the\xa0best possible hold. The rear seats are remarkably comfortable for a sports car. And the shelf behind offers additional storage Alcantera has been used to for roof lining and door panels and dashboard are covered in soft leather.

Dimension and Weight

The Porsche 911 is still resembles the legendary design from 1965 which is the most recognizable sports car ever. Iconic oval shaped LED headlights with four-point daytime running lights looks dynamic with strong creases over the hood. A triplet of front air intakes divided by horizontal lines looks quite similar to the previous models. The extremely wide rear fenders features air intake to cool off the engine looks sinister.

In the rear the 911 Turbo uses a single thin strip LED taillight inspired form Mission E stretches across the tail. A t shaped active rear spoiler adjust according to velocity for maximum aero efficiency. A pair of squared exhaust tips are neatly housed in the rear bumper with air splitters.

2019 Porsche 911 Turbo Competition

Lamborghini Huracan

If you think looks are everything than no doubt Huracan is the champ here. Everyone will look at you and the street presence is more than anything. In any case, in the event that you're more into the driving dynamics and handling, at that point Porsche is the most elite out there. Porsche's sharp steering and agile chassis is a true winner at track. The power delivery of the V6 twin turbo in comparison to the naturally aspirated V10 of the Lamborghini is unearthly.

Additionally, to be considered is the value, it's about $40,000 costly than 911 turbo which may squeeze a little on the pocket and goodness those fuel bills. Great efficiency implies less fuel stops and progressively fun out and about which Porsche does it so exquisitely.

McLaren 600LT

The 600 LT houses a 3.8 liter turbocharged V6 powertrain encased in a lightweight aluminum carbon fiber shell. The Porsche is also powered by a 6 liter turbocharged powertrain but puts out 12 horses less than the McLaren. Both of the rivals go neck to neck with each other on track. The Porsche also has better fuel economy and can be used as a daily driver while the 600 LT is much a weekender. The Porsche 911 is also $40,000 cheaper and proves better value for money.

Audi R8 plus

The Audi R8 Spider and Lamborghini Huracan shares its chassis and high revving 5.2 liter V10. Both come only with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and are available in either rear- or all-wheel-drive configuration. Being $4,000 dearer than a 911 turbo, it gets you a V10 motor rather than V6. The all-wheel drive setup of the Porsche 911 is certainly more advanced and complex than the R8. It proves more agile at the track and mileage is also good with the Turbo 911.

2019 Porsche 911 Turbo Final Verdict

The Porsche 911 Turbo is an excellent car which is nimble around corners and offers strong performance with its V6 powertrain. It has always been the stuff of legends and comes with an impressive list of features and a gargantuan 5.6 liter V6 powertrain. For speed lovers, the car extremely responsive throttle is not less than a blessing . What can be better than driving your supercar daily and still not look pretentious , however at this price it is advised to checkout alternatives .
