Vehicle story

Say the word “turbo” to any Porschephile, and they instantly know you’re talking about the 911 Turbo. And for 2007 the ultimate Porsche road warrior gets even more turbo boost! Thanks to the addition of twin variable-vane turbochargers for the 3.6-liter flat six dry-sump engine, its flexible geometry jumps peak power 14-percent to a thrilling 480 horsepower. Maximum torque also jumps high to 460 pound-feet, which is available as low as 1,950 rpm.

The Sport Chrono package allows for more aggressive engine mapping and turbo overboost that raises peak torque to a pavement warping 505 pound-feet. Putting all that power securely to the road is Porsche’s Traction Management which couples stability control with a more flexible all-wheel-drive system. It features an electronically-controlled multi-disc clutch that continuously balances power rear to front, allowing up to 100% at either end. The driver controls that power through a 6-speed manual gearbox. A 5-speed Tiptronic S automatic with sequential manual mode shift is optional and actually is the faster choice.

This beautiful example has the preferred manual and limited slip rear differential. The 997 turbo rockets to 60 in a rapid 3.9 seconds. The quarter mile hammers by in 12.2 seconds at 120 miles-per-hour. It’s super strong off the line, but power really hits above 3,600 rpm; and then its rocket-like thrust to the 6,600 rpm redline. But it’s also incredibly smooth. It is the best combination of power, refinement, and flexibility in the super car engine ranks.

But this lighter, aluminum intensive 911 Turbo is about much more than just stunning acceleration. The front MacPherson, rear multi-link suspension utilizes Porsche’s Active Suspension management system that instantly tailors shock damping to road conditions. Early Turbos suffered from abrupt oversteer. While more recent all-wheel-drive versions had more than a hint of understeer. Compared to them, this 997 is very settled, pushing the front-end just a bit, which quickly scrubs off excess mid-corner speed to maintain its excellent balance. It gets you through a corner, and on to the next one, quickly and confidently, making every road or track seem smaller and shorter. That expertise extends to braking as well.

Despite this tremendous track ability, the 911 Turbo remains an exceptionally refined road car. This particular 997 Turbo delivers that incredible driving experience while also offering an environment as superbly equipped as many high-end sedans. Fine terracotta colored leather stretches from doors to dash to seats, which in this car are the optional adaptive sport seats that hold you tight while delivering top-notch comfort and support.

The exterior is also looking pretty advanced with a new front fascia, larger air intakes, bi-xenon headlights and LED turn signals—all heading up wider bodywork from the Carrera 4. Tall 19-inch forged alloy wheels, with tire pressure monitoring, wear 35-Series front and wider 305/30s in the rear. And there is a redesigned rear wing that automatically deploys at 75 miles-per-hour.

It’s a stunning automotive creation. And what you get is a thrill ride that puts roller coasters to shame.

The 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo is metal, rubber and leather soaked in pure adrenalin. An astounding effort that truly lives up to the Turbo legend.
