Recently, the new Porsche 911 Turbo S (991) was caught driving in Germany. The new top of the line turbocharged model will be able to rocket from 0 to 60 mph in a scant 2.9 seconds and keep going to a top speed of 198 mph. The 560 horsepower car will be able to pass just about everything on the road, short of a Bugatti Veyron.
The powerful rear-engined sports car will also feature rear wheel steering that will allow for it to handle better than previous models. The only real fly in the ointment for many purists is that the car will only be available with the seven-speed PDK dual clutch transmission with no traditional manual transmission available. None the less, it looks like it will be quite an incredible car.
