A quote from the Times review:

" It’s not as attractive as a normal 911; nor does it sound as good. When you drive it really fast, its handling is less rewarding, and the engine is less responsive to the throttle. So, in all but brute speed, it is an inferior product."

There is the Nissan GTR which i suggest is far better value. For a similar price is the GTR V-Spec or Audi R8 V10.

The problem is the Journalists simply refuse to speak about the CONTEXT- the conditions- the roads, and which 911 (or any other car) drives like what and when/how. They simply don't want to be specific. Why not take a few 911's to wales for an in depth comparison over 2 or 3 days varied driving? They'll never do it. J

Mr Sutcliffe doesn't mention the GT-R when talking about rivals for this latest incarnation of the 911 Turbo - I guess that is down to his personal opinion ...

The Nissan is the biggest thorn in Porsche's side because it does everything a 911 Turbo can do for less than 60% of the price.

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
