The Porsche 911 is not a supercar. Not. Even. Close. Yes, it’s fast, (especially the GT and Turbo models), expensive, and looks stunning, but it’s not quite there. Those who label the 911 as a ‘supercar’ bring to mind images of lycra-wearing parents who stand outside in the cold on a Saturday morning watching their 8 year-olds run rings around an oval track, informing every hapless passerby about how much of an ‘athlete’ their child is. Let’s be honest darling. I’m sure your child can run somewhat quickly, but no matter what you say, they ain’t Usain Bolt. They’re in Little Athletics not the Olympics for heavens sake.
Now don’t go thinking we hate the 911. We don’t. Rather the opposite actually. However, there is an inherent aura missing from the 911 experience that somehow disqualifies it from being classified as a full-blooded supercar. The same goes for Nissan’s GTR and AMG’s GT. And the Ferrari 812 Superfast; which, despite having all the key ingredients usually associated with a supercar, is really a grand tourer on steroids.
So then. The big question:
What is the best supercar on sale?
