Please be courageous: it is the new Porsche 911 Turbo S. Many people consider it the best car in the world. I am not going to argue this with you. If you are a fan of Porsche, no amount of coaxing or erudition will make you consider any other type of car. In many ways, why do you want to do this. The Porsche 911 Turbo S has many advantages.Porsche 911 Turbo S-Everything is possible

As with everything from Stuttgart, it’s all about what’s hanging way out back in that engine bay. In the case of the Porsche 911 Turbo S, it a whomper of a plant. Naturally, it’s a six-cylinder boxer. They’ve bolted two variable turbine geometry turbochargers and the mill puts out, a-hem, 530 bop and a maximum torque of 516 lb-ft.

Here, let me say it for you: “Sonofabitch!”Porsche 911 Turbo S-Everything is possible

The engine in the 911 Turbo S is exclusively mated to a seven-speed Porsche PDK Double-Clutch Gearbox. As it turns out, PDK stands for Doppelkupplungsgetriebe. I can understand why they went with the alphabet soup moniker. Doppelkupplungsgetriebe sounds like a crewman’s designation on a U-Boat.

After the PDK Double-Clutch Gearbox, the power gets routed via the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive. On top of that, managerial-wise are other nifty goodies like Dynamic Engine Mounts and Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) that includes a mechanical differential lock on the rear axle. You also get a Launch Control on the Sport Chrono Package Turbo as standard.Porsche 911 Turbo S-Everything is possible

All of this translates to zero to 100 km/h runs in 3.3 seconds, hitting the double ton (200 km/h) in 10.8 seconds and topping out at 315 km/h or 195 mph. Wanna stop? No worries. Extra-light and fading-resistant Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) provides the same outstanding performance in terms of stopping power and controlled application of the brakes.

Other standard details include Dynamic Bending Lights (I have no idea either), RS Spyder design 19-inch wheels with central locking, a three-spoke sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles, adaptive sports seats, cruise control, a CD/DVD changer and exclusive twin-tone leather upholstery in Black/Crema or Black/Titanium Blue.Porsche 911 Turbo S-Everything is possible

And how much will all this set you back? A lot. I mean a TON of cash.

The German market price of the Turbo S Coupé is Euro 173,241 including 19 per cent value-added tax and local equipment in the market (the Euro base price is Euro 145,400). The Cabriolet retails in the German market at Euro 184.546, again including 19 per cent VAT and local equipment/specifications (base price Euro 154,900).Porsche 911 Turbo S-Everything is possible
