Porsche 911 Turbo vs Mercedes AMG GT - evo Deadly Rivals

Two of the most exciting cars on sale today battle it out on track

With huge power and mighty all-wheel drive traction, the Porsche 911 Turbo's pace on track has rarely been in doubt. Its combination of traction and lateral grip is one that that very few cars in its price segment can rival.

Then there is the Mercedes-AMG GT. Already rated as a five-star car in our recent review, Mercedes' 911 rival is nothing short of fantastic. When we originally drove it in evo 204, it saw off the Porsche 911 GTS - a car that ranks highly in the 911 range.
