  • Enormous performance and handling ability; incomparable everyday appeal
  • Not as thrilling as certain rivals

Sporting a smaller engine with fewer cylinders than most rivals may not have been a disadvantage when it comes to performance, but the boxer-six engine is resultantly more efficient than rivals. With 31mpg for both coupe models on the combined cycle, the Turbo S uses significantly less fuel than the R8 and 570S. CO2 at 212g/km is also impressive for this sort of vehicle, and reliability ratings are general good for these late model 911’s.
