5 Fastest Cars Porsche Has Ever Made

Video

Road-going production cars, that is.

Porsche has made some epically fast cars over the course of its history. And it may come as little surprise that some of its latest are the fastest it's ever produced. But that's not always the case.

The German automaker has put out this list of its five fastest road-going production models. And contrary to its sales charts, there's not a Cayenne, Macan, or Panamera among them. This is all about its sports cars – and supercars, in some cases. But all of them have two doors, and their engine in back of the cockpit (whether they're between the axles or behind them).

Starting off the list in #5 is the 911 Turbo S, which (in its latest iteration) sends 580 horsepower from its 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat six to all four wheels. And you can bet the new version to be based on the latest 992 just revealed will be even faster and more powerful.

Next up is a supercar of the highest caliber, and one of Zuffenhausen's most loved creations of all time: the Carrera GT. Stemming from a canceled race-car program, it packed a 5.7-liter naturally aspirated V10, channeling over 600 horsepower to the rear wheels.

We're not quite sure how Porsche has ranked these, but it's placed the 959 S in the #3 slot. Basically a high-tech 911 on speed, the 959 packed a 2.8-liter twin-turbo flat six sending as much as 515 hp to all four wheels.

Faster still is the current 911 GT2 RS that has conquered the Nürburgring, with its 700 horsepower all driving the rear wheels. But king of them all, in Stuttgart's eyes, is the 918 Spyder – the hybrid hypercar with 887 hp.

It seems to have forgotten the 911 GT1 Strassenversion. Anything else you think Porsche's left off the list?
