The purpose of accumulating wealth is to be able to buy what you want without looking too closely at the price; to splurge from time to time. And for many people splurging is buying the sports car that they always wanted. Well, how about a Porsche? From American Luxury Magazine.
The thing about Porsche 911s is that you either love them or don’t care much for them. We’d venture to say that most of the people in the latter category are people who’ve never driven them because, quite possibly, Porsche represents the pinnacle of auto engineering. The rest of the equation is really more of an emotional response to the unmistakable figure of the 911.
The Porsche 911 Turbo ($149,250 starting price) adds more muscle to the latest 911 refresh. It features a twin-turbo direct-injection 3.8-liter flat-six engine that puts out 520 horsepower. Perhaps equally impressive is that it still manages to achieve 24 mpg. The S version of the 911 Turbo ($182,050 starting price) produces 560 horsepower.
Beyond the premium audio and luxurious leather you’ve come to expect in a Porsche, these Turbo versions also features radar-guided cruise control, road sign recognition, and an advanced dual LED headlight system appropriately called Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus.
For those of you who scan car articles for 0-60 mph times, here they are: 3.2s for the Turbo, and 2.9s seconds for the Turbo S.
