The new 911 Turbo’s personality is dominated by the motor’s capacity to crush your skull against the headrest during exuberant acceleration.

The 2010 911 Turbo is an astonishing, pure driving experience, despite the layers of technology added to cope with its copious power. And it’s still distinctly a Porsche.

The Porsche 911 Turbo is a purpose-built sports car that is tons of fun when you can appreciate it, but a bit of bother when you just want to relax or carry passengers or cargo.

You could drive a Turbo daily — it’s got the most luxury, space (hey, two back seats for the kids!), and refined powertrain of any supercar. But the rock-hard suspension can’t absorb bumps.

Barry Winfield Barry Winfield 7.2 out of 10 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo S Coupe

Porsches have long had the reputation for everyday driveability, and the 2010 911 Turbo is no exception. It may have 500 hp, but unlike many “super” cars, the Turbo makes it easy to climb behind the wheel and simple to manage in the narrow lanes of small villages. A practical 500-hp sports car? Perhaps.

The 911 Porsche Turbo delivers performance that competes with cars that cost substantially more, while providing everyday usability that most exotics simply can’t match.

Jason Cammisa Jason Cammisa 7.0 out of 10 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo S Coupe

The 911 is a unique combination of driver involvement, luxury, speed, handling, and impeccable build quality. The Turbo adds “muscle car” to that list, with only the slightest of sacrifices to driver involvement.

The seventh-generation Porsche 911 Turbo features the first truly new engine in the model’s 35-year history. Result? A car that is greatly improved, and could very well be the most “livable” supercar in the world.

The Porsche Turbo S is actually quite luxurious. It offers all of the comfort features of the regular Turbo, to which it adds its own special leather upholstery and 30 more horsepower.
