Thanks to its turbo lag and the rear engine layout, the 911 Turbo was a recipe for disaster for lesser skilled drivers.

Over the years Porsche’s world class engineering has managed to take all of this away. Using what can only be referred to as technical wizardry, the latest 911 Turbo is fast and yet nimble even for less experienced drivers. Each evolution of the 911 has seen the Turbo change from essentially a Terminator to an R2-D2. The early 90’s Porsche 911 Turbo represents a major step toward the car we have now.

Specifically the 1994 Dodge Viper and the 2001 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. There are a few more years of each that will have similar specs and / or market values, but we are going to focus on these years to keep the numbers simple.

Over time the struts that hold up the front trunk on a Porsche 911, Boxster or Cayman will start to fail. When this happens it can be quite painful as the front hood will potentially come down on your head.

The 992 generation Porsche 911 Carrera S is quite the car, at least on paper. The rear-engined sports car has been turbocharged since the 991.2, but it is now even faster. When optioned with the PDK transmission the 992 Carrera S can go 0-60 mph in just 3.5 seconds.
