Safety
9.0/10

Agencies like the NHTSA and IIHS do not test luxury cars, especially from the performance car segment because of various reasons including the high price tag and low volume being the major factors. And it is the same in the case of the 2022 Porsche 911 Turbo S convertible. Due to refinement in the chassis design which lowered it by 10mm last year, Turbo S offers more stability and displays an impressive braking performance because of the Enhanced ceramic brakes. 

That said, in the list of standard safety features, cruise control, brake assist, tire pressure monitoring system, engine immobilizer, front and rear ParkAssist, and a rearview camera. Safety and driving assistance features such as lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, lane change assist, night vision assist, and traffic sign recognition is optional. Highlights of the safety features are:

  • Cruise control
  • Brake assist
  • Lane-keep assist (optional)
  • Active lane-keep (optional)
  • Adaptive cruise control (optional)
  • Emergency stop (optional)
  • Surround-view camera system (optional)
Competition

Porsche 911 Turbo S vs McLaren 600LT

On one side, the Porsche 911 Turbo tried to run ahead with its breathtaking power figures and witty acceleration while on the other, the McLaren 600LT tried to catch up with a slightly bigger fuel tank and the trunk. But these are not enough to beat the Porsche 911 Turbo S. It allows four people to sit inside while it’s only two in McLaren’s case. 

Porsche 911 Turbo S vs Audi R8 Performance Spyder

Be it performance or cargo space, Audi R8 has received a slap from the Porsche 911 Turbo S. However, it retaliates with class-leading storage capacity but it is not enough since its counterpart has already its defense in form of interior space. However, Audi R8 is cheaper and comes with more standard features. 

Porsche 911 Turbo S vs Ferrari Portofino M

The Ferrari Portofino M is the toughest contender to the Porsche 911 Turbo S as long as the engine output is concerned. But this output is not enough to beat the Porsche which crosses 60 mph from a standstill 0.7 seconds faster than the Ferrari. But the Ferrari has an advantage because of its leading cargo space and better fuel storage capacity.

Final Verdict

The Porsche 911 Turbo S has received cut-throat competition from its rivals. However, there is only one rival who is better than it in every aspect except acceleration. Therefore, if a few thousand dollars more does not scare you, the Ferrari Portofino M is a better choice as compared to the Porsche Turbo 911 Turbo S provided you can neglect the rich history of the 911 model and high range of customization from the Porsche.
