2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S First Drive Review: Daily Driver With Monster Performance


Now 45 years old, every previous generation of Porsche 911 Turbo has been introduced to a line-up as the only turbocharged model, bar the rarefied GT2. That changed mid-way through the previous 991 generation, and now the new 992 Turbo S we’re testing (introduced before the regular Turbo) crowns a range that is entirely turbocharged, bar the incoming GT3/GT3 RS. It begs the question whether the Turbo S can make a strong enough case for itself given the latest Carrera’s new-found depth of performance, and how much the Turbo S can justify the substantial extra financial outlay.

Porsche absolutely knows this, so it’s put the hard yards in on the 992: performance jumps by 69 hp to 640 hp, for both more power than ever before, and a larger increase between model generations than ever before.

Is the 2021 Porsche 911 a good car?
