What's New For 2017?

The 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo is facelifted, adding revised styling, new technology and slightly more power -- both in Turbo and Turbo S guise.

What We Like

Amazing acceleration; handsome styling; high-quality interior materials; all-wheel drive

What We Don't

Doesn't have the "exotic" look; prices are creeping higher and higher

Overview

The Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S are flagship models of the Porsche range, the highest-performance versions of Porsche's legendary 911. Unfortunately, they have flagship pricing: The standard 911 Turbo starts at nearly $163,000, while a Cabriolet model is $175,000. For a Turbo S, prices start at $192,000, while the Turbo S Cabriolet is $204,000 with shipping -- all before options, which are plentiful.

But, as you might expect, you get a lot for the money. One benefit is Porsche's excellent styling: The 911 Turbo and Turbo S are gorgeous evolutions of the 911 design, with beautiful interior and exterior designs and exciting subtle clues that distinguish them from the standard 911 model. With that said, many drivers paying nearly $200,000 -- or more -- will want more of an exotic look, like what you'd get with a comparably priced Audi R8 or a lightly used Ferrari 458 Italia.

But any question about the 911 Turbo's exotic-car status will be removed the moment you get behind the wheel. The standard 911 Turbo offers a 540-horsepower turbocharged 6-cylinder, and it can do zero to 60 in 2.9 seconds. That's amazing -- but the Turbo S is even better, boasting 580 horses and a 2.8-second 0-to-60 time. Those incredible performance numbers are bolstered by the 911 Turbo's quick-shifting dual-clutch transmission, along with its grippy all-wheel-drive system.

The 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S also deliver a dizzying array of standard equipment and options. Standard and optional fare is generally what you'd expect from a luxury car, but the real party trick is the customization: The 911 Turbo and Turbo S can be endlessly optioned, ordered and changed, with virtually every item customizable to every level -- including interior materials, stitching and even the exterior paint color.
