Profile

The greatest supercar of them all? Many people think so, and there is no denying that the Turbo is probably the fastest point to point car available today.

This potent cross country ability is partly attributable to the incredible Porsche Stability Management system that gives the car phenomenal handling and cornering ability although 4 wheel drive and 420bhp helps a bit too! To round it all off Porsche also sets new standards in stopping power with it's newly developed ceramic brake system. 2004 sees a 30th anniversary special with 450bhp giving 0-60mph is just 4 seconds.

This fifth incarnation of the 25 year old 911 Turbo may be the best, but somehow it has lost the raw sporting appeal (and looks) that made its predecessors into true motoring legends.
