Is the Porsche 911 Turbo S a Supercar?

It may have a price tag almost as heavy as a McLaren 12C, but can you call the new 911 Turbo S a supercar? Chris Harris investigates.

Drive’s Chris Harris thinks there’s a problem with the pricing of the 991-gen Porsche 911 Turbo. It sits significantly above Carreras, even those that come with all the trimmings, but isn’t too far off the latest junior supercars, like the McLaren 12C. So does that mean we should think of the new 911 Turbo as a supercar?
