Review: The new Porsche 911 Turbo S on road, track and in a supermarket car park

Loading...

For our latest film with Porsche's new 992 generation 911 Turbo S we went from Waitrose to a Wiltshire circuit (via a B-road). I think we covered pretty much all the aspects of the car - there certainly felt like a lot to talk about.
I don't mind admitting to taking a deep breath before the big (fast!) oversteer shots on the track. Good fun though. Hope you enjoy it.

  • I really enjoyed that , great presentation. I agree with the sentiment too. I just bought my first Porsche 911, a 2005 Carrera 4S. [I wrote about the experience here:- drivetribe.com/p/i-bought-a-porsche-911-EGMMNhATS9yMZ2xmubqQLA?iid=Jh4sa6fcR0qfu-5HmPRBDg ] The other car I was considering was a Lotus Evora. In the end, I went for the Porsche because it's such a genuinely usable sports car. I think around here, they're rare enough to be exciting for car enthusiasts to see. But average member of the public? They just think you have an old car. It's AWD so usable in bad weather. There's an incredible amount of room in the car for its size, in terms of storage and cabin space. If you have small kids it's actually as practical a family car as a saloon. It's also a really comfortable, refined ride if you leave the PASM button alone. The only real annoyance is the PCM2.1 phone and navigation system which looks like it was sourced from Fisher Price and has the functionality of an Commadore 64. Thankfully it came with a DEnsion Gateway 500 so I could connect my iPod and I've just upgraded that to a Dension 500s BT so I can connect my phone via bluetooth. The only downside now is the lack of voice commands and the clunkiness of the interface and lack of postcode entry on the sat nav.
