Does A Turbocharger Bring The Modern 911 Back To Porsche's Golden Years?


Turbo lag vs. a broad power band: which one wins?

Porsche purists are an odd bunch of people because they are resistant to change. It’s understandable to want to keep a perfect car perfect, but as we know, automakers can’t do that in a time where downsizing is the law of the land. Besides, it’s radical innovation that brought about revolutionary cars like the 918 Spyder, so why not give change a chance? Motor Trend’s Ignition decided to do just that in order to find out how a turbocharger has changed the 911 Carrera.

The funny thing about the turbo haters is that the 911 Turbo is known as one of the best sports cars of all time, so why not let the technology from that car infiltrate the lower trims?
