911 Turbo S Takes Junior Supercar Battle

6 Porsche of Tucson

Car and Driver Puts Legendary Brands to Test

It’s tough to imagine calling a car that can pin you back in your seat in the 0 to 60 mph run while costing a couple of hundred grand a “Junior” anything, but that’s the official category designation for the Porsche 911 Turbo S, Audi R8 V10 and McLaren 570s. The editors at Car and Driver magazine had the enviable task of pitting those three beasts of the road against each other recently. As you might expect, the comparisons were close but spoiler alert, the 911 Turbo S came out on top. You can test drive and buy the best Junior Supercar on the planet just by paying Porsche of Tucson a visit.

Porsche Gives Biggest Bang for the Buck

Coming in at about $10,000 less than its competitors for the tested version, the Porsche 911 Turbo S produced the best numbers as the editors took the evaluation to the track and the open highway. The reviewers called the Porsche the “runaway winner” that “carries a very large stick with which to beat those who underestimate it.” It takes just 2.6 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph and blasts through the quarter-mile run in just 10.6 seconds, achieving a top speed of 131 mph. Going very fast means you have to also stop very quickly, which the Porsche achieved easily. Its carbon fiber brakes bring the sporty Porsche from 70 mph to 0 in just 139 feet. That’s 14 feet less than the R8 and five fewer feet than it took to bring the McLaren to a halt.

Turbo S Stays Under Control

The Car and Driver editors said one of the best things about the Porsche 911 Turbo S is its unflappability. “Treat it with a light touch or a clumsy ham-fist and it will always respond in the same fashion,” they wrote. “It makes its drivers look more skilled than they are.” With all-wheel drive, wide tires and a four-wheel steering system, the 911 gives even the most inexperienced driver a feeling he or she could take on all comers on the European race circuit. When the testing was over each day, it was the Porsche the editors chose to run errands or go to dinner. See why the 911 Turbo S should be your Junior Supercar of choice by taking a visit to Porsche of Tucson.
