Price as Tested $187,100

Tremendous acceleration over most of the rev range from 483 bhp; no turbo lag; slick transmission; good ride; responsive handling with some of the traditional 911 rear-biased characteristics; feels light.


Suspension too unsettled on bumpy roads; looks like a $75,000 911 inside and out.


A serious Teutonic muscle machine for the serious driver. Does most anything you want, effortlessly. Too bad it doesn’t look more exotic. The suspension is bouncy on bumpy roads—at 135 mph, I was worried about skipping off the tarmac and into trouble.
