Wait for the Launch Activated message to appear on the display. Hang on to the steering Sidestep the brake pedal.

happens next wakes you up than any shot of espresso, as the 911 Turbo instantly calls all its wizardry into action and you are launched forward as all four squirm for grip and the all-wheel-drive apportions the massive torque of the for the quickest getaway. In a scant 3.2 you will hit 100 kilometres an hour. Do the in a Turbo S and that run will be 0.1 quicker.

Did I mention you should hang on to the wheel?

Even while this fierce, almost display of power, I can’t but be amazed at how the car remains absolutely as the scenery blurs.

Porsche 911

Later day, while lapping the Berg Drive Resort, a type track designed by World Rally Champion Röhrl and Formula One racetrack Hermann Tilke, the Porsche 911 absolutely shines, carrying speed through long and making quick transitions in the while expertly compensating for about any driver input

What makes this is all the latest technology that has thrown in to the 911 that now sits the pyramid. In this car, about every system the words “dynamic,” “active” or in their designation, like the new rear axle steering two electromechanical actuators, which the conventional track rods, and can the angle of the rear wheels as a of vehicle speed.

Under 50 km/h, the rear are turned up to 2.8 degrees in the direction to the front wheels, which the turning circle and makes easier. At speeds over 80 the rear wheels are turned up to 1.5 in the same direction as the front which makes the car more in quick transitions.

Also new to the 911 is the Porsche Active Aerodynamics that controls the front and the rear wing in three Below 120 km/h, both are and the front spoiler is folded reducing the risk of scraping the on steep driveways or parking Over 120 km/h, the Speed is activated and the two outer segments of the spoiler are extended as the rear rises by 25 millimetres.

Go faster and the Performance mode the middle section of the front to create a low-pressure area behind it, while the rear rises by 75 mm and is angled forward by degrees generating 132 kilograms of when the car hits 300 km/h on autobahns. You can also fully these aerodynamic appendages by pressing the aerodynamic or Sport button if you want to pretend you are travelling at three times the limit on Canadian roads.

After all this talk of and speed, you could be forgiven for that the Porsche 911 Turbo is an speed demon, but the truth is this car has a split personality. Out on the road, it is perfectly happy to quickly all the way up to seventh gear as you at a leisurely pace in order to the revs and fuel consumption

At 80 km/h in seventh gear, the registers only 1,200 and with the chassis calibration set to the car is remarkably comfortable on secondary Supercar performance and everyday is what typifies the new 911 Turbo. The rear-wheel-drive 911 GT3 will be quicker just about any racetrack, Bilster Berg, as confirmed by Röhrl, but is not as relaxed on the road.

Now, do you need a 520 horsepower for the Turbo S) car? Most don’t, but if you do, the new 911 Turbo models arrive in Canada in December with prices starting at for the Turbo and $206,600 for the Turbo S.
