What is it?
We’ve already driven, and been predictably blown away by, the new 911 Turbo in its more powerful, more expensive S form.
But what of the standard, run-of-the-mill, regular basic new 911 Turbo, the one that costs just £118,349 and produces a mere 514bhp? It is, in simple terms, pretty much the same car – and it feels every bit as outrageously fast as a consequence.
On paper, there appear to be some notable differences. It doesn't have the S model's ceramic brakes or active anti-roll bars, and it lacks the standard-fit Sport Chrono package. There are some cosmetic differences, too. The standard Turbo manages without the S version's LED headlights.
Then, of course, there's the fact that it's down some 39bhp and at least 29lb ft, resulting in fractionally slower performance – all of which saves you £22,503, compared to opting for the full-fat S model.
I’d defy anyone to notice the difference in pure performance, however, if they were strapped into the passenger seat and forced to wear a blindfold.
