What is it?
Porsche and its turbochargers have been a bit of a contentious subject of late, but we'll leave that alone here. Whatever your standpoint, you'll know that since 1975 it's been possible to buy a 911 with forced induction. Ever since then, the Turbo has occupied the 911 range's top spot.
And although there are more turbocharged 911s about the place these days, the big-T Turbo remains the pinnacle 911, and this S model is the cherry on top of that.
The Turbo S has matured to produce some insane performance figures over the years. To give you an idea, Porsche's 1975 3.0 930 Turbo produced 257bhp and achieved 0-62mph in 5.5sec. Today's S puts out 572bhp and rips to 62mph from rest in just 2.9sec.
For 2016, the Turbo's 3.8-litre flat six receives modified inlet ports in its cylinder heads, new injection nozzles and a higher fuel pressure, all to help it produce 20bhp more than it did before. The S then gets new turbochargers to give it a further 40bhp power hike over the 'standard' Turbo.
The Turbo S has a price to go with its high-ranking status, too: more than £145,000 before options. It's a price that puts it in the same league as the similarly savage McLaren 570S and Audi R8, even if the way the three cars go about their business is quite different.
