Porsche 911 Turbo 3.3

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Drive-it Day Special The 50 Greatest Drives - Mur­ray scul­lion

When the Porsche’s KKK turbo ex­plodes into life it feels as though a bomb has det­o­nated un­der your right foot. You won’t feel any pain, though, be­cause you’ll be con­cen­trat­ing on keep­ing it on the straight and nar­row. This era of 911 is an enor­mous amount of fun, and feel­ing that turbo spool up is as ex­cit­ing as when it fi­nally goes off just past 3000rpm.

The rest of the time, it’s as docile and as easy to live with as a Bee­tle. Al­beit a re­ally fast Bee­tle with loads and loads of grip and poise. Just watch out for that boost in the wet.
