Profile

The hugely anticipated sixth generation 911 Turbo has arrived. Porsche enthusiasts may have been hoping for over 500 bhp, but the Turbo's 'mere' 478 is more than up to the task. Acceleration is stunning - in fact quicker in the auto version than the manual?! Incredible traction rockets the 911 to 30mph in a scarcely believable 1.3 sec, then on to 60mph just 2.3 seconds later! As if that wasn't enough, the optional 'Sports Chrono' pack tempts the driver with a short burst facility to increase torque to a massive 500lbft.

Handling is as you now come to expect of a 911, exemplary. Complex electronic systems such as PSM, PASM and PTM abound, as does a facility to adjust suspension damping settings on the fly.

It may not ultimately be the quickest supercar around (nor should it be for under 100k), but for real-world, all weather A-B journeys, it must surely be the best.

The updated 2009 997.2 version saw power up to 493bhp, and a quicker 0-100kmh time of just 3.4 seconds.
