The Porsche 911 Turbo has always been a fast car. Of course, it's gotten faster as the years go on and technology allows it to bridge new performance chasms. The latest and greatest is the 2014 911 Turbo S, which Porsche claims will hit 198 miles per hour at the top end. That's all well and good, but the fact is that Porsche isn't telling the truth here.
Nope... the stock 911 Turbo S is even faster than the automaker is letting on.
Per Sport Auto, the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S will go all the way up to 207 miles per hour if you keep your boot on the go pedal. Actually, they don't just say this, they go out and prove it with video. The camera stays on the gauges as the tach and speedo needles run (quickly) up to the cars VMax. The speedometer indicates 333 kilometers per hour.
That's wildly impressive. What's also impressive is just how quickly the car gets up there. There's another angle of the run that shows the driver actually starts out on a mild bend, yet still manages to run from 0-62 miles per hour in just 2.8 seconds.
To say that the new 911 Turbo S is quick is a vast understatement. This two-door road-going missile seems to be the new performance benchmark for the sub-supercar set. Although, it wouldn't be a stretch to consider the 911 Turbo S a supercar minus the uber-exotic styling normally reserved for a car that wears that title.
Regardless of what class of car it occupies, anyone rolling around in one of these machines can rest confident knowing that 99 percent of the traffic it encounters can't hold a candle to it when it comes to performance.
