"Human eyes cannot cope with the force of the acceleration". We've just been driving the new Porsche 911 Turbo S – full review at the link…
(Type: photo | Published: 2013-08-22T19:00:06+0000)
[david thomas] - It's still an over grown turbo charged beetle.
[rok leben] - Jeremy's fav car :D
[mike freerking] - Same boring shape since the 1960's they need new blood in the design dept.
[dan taylor] - Still not as quick as GT-R!
[jyot nath] - It's a known fact that Porsche's so called published performance figures 0-100 is not correct.in real world they are faster then those times. Nissan on the other hand have been notoriously claiming faster times on slicks, but ain't faster than the turbo s. have driven both extensively for few years and trust me overall Porsches are far far far superior cars in every way
[chris hopkins] - The 911 beetle joke is getting so very old especially with the people who can't even afford the beetle.
[don mulconrey] - Oh weird, the Porsche haters continue to say "looks the same" and "just like the beetle". Wow, intelligent criticism. Guess they have never driven one, at least properly, or they just have Porsche envy like everyone who doesn't own one. Porsche continues to rule the road and track decade after decade. It's a super car that you can drive to work! It's a sports car that is so refined to perfection that there is little need to make big changes. If you can't comprehend that concept then go buy something else... and save your silly comments for the school yard because that's how old you sound.
[vernon stokes] - Suck on this Ferrari
[mark flynn alec rutter] - Yes please Santa.....black one
[steve lowdell] - 3.1 seconds 0-63 time...still not as quick as an MY13 R35 GTR now down to 2.7 seconds in std trim.
[lloyd mulder] - Shut up about ya glorified beetle
[jim whitehead] - "ludicrous speed"? Did your world go Plaid?
[abram castillo] - a beautiful car, by a phenomenal company (Porsche)
[jean-sébastien paré] - There is wayyy too many people here who have absolutely NO IMAGINATION and write the same s*** over over and over again...
[richard corbett] - so twice as much $ and considerably slower then a GTR, both on a circuit and straight line... how is this a step forward??
[frodo bagginson] - Mr Gandalf bought one he did for Mrs Gandalf :)
[javier barrientos] - Top quality allows a horrible design unfortunately we grew used yo it!
[greg holloway] - simply awesome , ask walter rohrl.
[joe garcia] - No manual? Not especially interested, even if it suspended all the laws of physics and time.
[igor kurtz] - I had a dream about it last night, don't know why. I was driving it with my cat in the passengers seat..
[ameer rahman] - My favourite 911 turbo....saw this for the first time in need for speed hot pursuit 2....really enjoyed is car in that game and was also the fastest car of mine on the road in nfs undercover.........Porsche keep up the good work in the future.....you showed the world that you don't need to change te style of the car everytime to increase it's sale...this is in the same shape but looks far more cool than those ferrari's.........got no words to describe the beauty of this car
[george smith] - Aidan Ginger thought you'd appreciate this :)
[andreas may] - There's a reason Porsche have continually modified the original design-it just works! If you look at motor sport, Porsche continually beat their competition year after year, including Ferrari and Lamborhini. They also continue to be the most popular supercar ever built. People can criticize all they like, the success of the 911 design will continue. I, personally, love the design. It continues to be one of the best looking cars on the road, defying all the design trends that come and go. I'll take a lime green and black GT3-RS please!
[daisy warner] - Oh. Baby. Chris.
[michael chen] - Love it! Why are there so many 911 or Porsche haters here?
[garry graham] - best car in the sixties and still dominates to day this record speaks for it self, no other manufacturer can claim this success.
[dada cardona] - why make me so jealous !!!!!
[mahrukh nawaz] - Danyal Admani :O (Y) :DD
[luke durrant] - Haha James Connelly I'd need a garage for one of them fat chance of being able to afford both a garage with a house and a Porsche around here
[james connelly] - Luke Durrant - Found you one!
[farouk hsakou] - i'll buy one next week
[herrmann bart] - realy built for a real gentleman...hhh
[craig marett] - Its too powerful for Actionman Keith!
[paul gomersall] - 911 just love em i do and dont care wot the haters say quality engineering most reliable super car on planet
[psalmist howard] - the body looks good. but the interior of a Porsche is so whack
[stefan werner] - The GTR € for € and HP is a better drivers car. I have driven both and the GTR is in a word simply amazing.
That said if I was handed the keys for both to drive for a year..... the choice would be a very simple one.
The 911 has what the Nissan will probably never have.....class. Among all its other great attributes....it has pedigree as someone put it.
And almost every 911 series actually grows in value....a GTR starts relatively cheap and loses value.
[sina madani] - Looks hideous in that colour and bodykit but 0-60mph in 3.1 seconds and top speed of 198 mph is pretty good. Shame that it doesn't look as fast as it probably is. Even the 996 Turbo S was much better looking in my opinion.
[roger burgess] - Love the fact that we are comparing Porsche with GTR still. Always makes me smile. For those of you talking about claiming figures etc - what on earth makes you think a marketing department would say - oh our car will do 0-62 in 2.9 seconds but let's actually tell the world it is a bit worse than it is....really? Anyway I have been there on a number of occasions and actually driven and seen the cars against each other on the same day, same temperatures, same track and the GTR beat the 911 every single time - round a track you don't see which way the Nissan went and that was stock. Tweak them (911 or GTR to be fair) and the Nissan is on a different world. I am biased though as I drive a 640 BHP GTR. Oh and 70k in my pocket and the Nissan gets loved, photographed and people being nice to you - you never get that in a 911 as they are so so common (admittedly not the Turbo)
[will crowther] - The 2011 version tied the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport for fastest car in the world from 0 to 60 mph (Oct 2010 Motor Trend). This one is faster. Oh yeah, and the 530 HP 2011 version easily beat the 638 HP Corvette ZR1 in 0 to 60, 0 to 100, quarter mile, and 0 to 140 mph contests. This one is faster. A seven speed PDK transmission and all-wheel drive don't hurt at all!
[lucas 'rateng' mboya] - Gosh, a demon. My fav car returns badder than ever. Ferrari 458, McLaren 12c eat your hearts out. Turbo is cheaper, better made, faster and better all rounder!
[james thom] - Nissan GTR nice, and quick too 60mph! However its gonna be worth £5000 in 5 years! Porsche 911 might even be worth more than you paid in first place....and will start every-time!....911 is saving you money in the long term and when someone asks what you drive......you have to say Porsche or Nissan/Datsun.
[dean arney] - I remember when Porsche had designers!
[james tipping] - But it will still be a NISSAN
[ethan rei howard] - No need to attach a picture, we know what it looks like.
[martin criado] - "Clever aero too: as well as that active rear wing, the Turbo S boasts the world's first variable front spoiler..."
Mitsubishi´s 3000GT had a variable front spoiler in the ´90s.
[ليث كبه] - hamond fav your car this
[phil gilley] - Human eye's can't be bothered to look at it either!... its like deja vu, again and again and again and again and again... Last of the summer wine in automotive form - boring...
[dusty webb] - Some ppl do prefer a clutch pedal though. They shouldn't do away with tradition
[hazem sood] - I wonder how would James' eyes deal with ..
[jyot nath] - 997 turbo s was faster than the gtr.
Top Gear: "Human eyes cannot cope with the force of the acceleration". We've just been driving the new Po - 50th Comments
[dusty webb] - If u say u don't like a Porsche, ur a liar
[alex karagianis] - Porsche, best everyday supercar
[dan taylor] - ...still say its an expensive beetle mind!
[phil john max merritt] - 911? Means something totally different in the USA
[joão cunha] - Óne of the great Cars of 2013 i love
[lutho quentin jobela] - This and the Nissan Gtr draw a jagged line through the laws of Physics
[shae molloy.] - how many people who follow topgear can really afford this??? i would say 10% max so what about the normal people who wouldnt waste 100k on a car??
[aris kouimtsidis] - Eeeee? Eleni Piper
[aat ish] - Zyclotron Metalcore
[dumisane van der matsane] - this 911s look the same sigh
[roger m abington] - fabulous drivers car, love mine!!
[george koten jr] - Mercedes-Benz Hellas look at here!! xaxaxaxa
[bijorno brickwedde] - Jan Jan Philipp Stahl
[simon horrid henry hopkins] - Porsche are liars. They said no more turbos.... oh hang on Jezza said that too!
[ameenah durrani] - I bet you wouldn't mind one of these to take to work:)'
[wan ahmad razmi] - This Turbo looks a bit extreme,i thought it was the GT2 or GT3.
[chris story] - The 2010 911 Turbo S did 0-60 MPH in 2.7 and 10.7 1/4 mile. The 911 Turbo has always been my favorite car, and still is.
[tony alfano] - The first gen Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 had an active front splitter/spoiler. Which means Porsches was not the first
[bahar hm] - kheili khubeeeeee
[justin herron] - The only thing i like is the new wheel design. If i ever had the money and bought a porsche it would be a 2003 gt3. With that being said and this may be bad, but id rather have a 02 corvette zo6 with gm t1 sway bars.
[mohamad samadi] - like for jeremy & top gear team
[paul stevens] - you,ve tested the likes of the veyron and your eyes coped with that!
[thabong letlamo] - Porsche not gr8 value, u have 2 pay twice 4 the price of a decent 1 of them. Butter off with any cheap thnk u. An engine and new lights just won't with over new buyers.
[robert john carpenter] - A snip at £142K.I would have to be a politician to own one.Lovely interior though up to Porsche's normal high standard.
[theo vontas] - Brunino Condello
[albertus nunky] - its just look the same :D
[rob porter] - YAY! I know Jeremy was sooo excited to get a chance to drive it.... since it is his favorite car after all.
[bryan chaulk] - If that car was mid engined, it would be the best car ever made.
[pooya sadeghi] - Jeremy's fav car is aston martin , This car favorite car lovers
[rory sheehan] - Just stupid! In a very great way Porsche.
[anthony trump] - Would look great in my garage...
[paul pestana] - thats the business! still prefer F458
[gernot flick] - Every year a little bit faster, a little bit more sportive. That is it. Boring.
[eddy brotmann] - Love ITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT..........................
[damian cox] - Hammond must be looked in the toliet over this one?
[richard hazeldine ✯] - People. It's called heritage and evolution. No other car company has really had this burden apart from BMW with the iconic M3 which they have destroyed. I wouldn't want the responsibility for the 911 design team: responsible for making improvements yet having to maintain a lineage with preceding models. It's a shame there's no manual though. Yeah, GTR this, GTR that - they're o-kay and technical masterpieces, but have no heritage or much class.
[henrik fernsten] - i can believe this was born from a beetle !
[kobus buitendag] - Whattacar !!! Cannot agree less with the likes of David Thomas !
[prince omar] - Wow u love the car
[valentino danielis] - This Porsche is very cute, I like :)
[nick farina] - Insane. I want one!!
[wynand van der merwe] - Love this car, but will settle for 911 carrera s...
[new stig] - This makes me very happy !!
[sohail julani] - Have driven the Godzilla GTR 2013 model great but not much thrill factor.
Seriously jump into any PORSCHE 911 You Will Not Be Disappointed
A True Sporting Pedigree And It Only Just Gets BETTER........TURBO S WOW.......
[steven rodas] - this car is stunning!!!
[giovanni licastri] - I'll take the 360
[rey rxu fernandez] - A fine example of what a machine can do when the electric motors are limited to powering the windshield wipers and raising/lowering the windows.
[jed del valle] - haha I very much agree to that...
[i fucking love porsches] - We would very much like to find out for ourselves . . .
[james mccormick] - the list of stuff i would give up to own one of these is lengthy
Top Gear: "Human eyes cannot cope with the force of the acceleration". We've just been driving the new Po - 100th Comments
[theystole mywheels] - Why don't they name one, just one, a 912?
[logan lux daniels] - Did Hammond write that?
[derek grube] - Let me guess...It accelerates just like the last 911, except imperceptibly faster at some point.
[alex ardoin] - Well we know it was Richard Hammond that wrote this post and no Jeremy Clarkson
[daniel lafrenière] - A real Porsche has 3 pedals.That is all.
[lee haynes] - Igor it's the same type of car used in their old 911s! :p
[ayoubhashim al] - GTR is 911 killer
[giancarlo bobbio] - tu pazzione Takumi Carlos Alberto Gonzalez Guzman
[jon benedict] - Go drive a car that can REALLY accelerate at a dragatrip, a street car just doesn't cut it. The last time I saw such hyperbole was a print ad in 1987 of a 4-door Volvo with a "Chrondek" timing system (christmas tree) in the photo! Hardy har har, nyuk nyuk nyuk!
[inder jolly] - Sick sick sick of this 911 craps
[adam deruiter] - Wish I had the money for one.
[robbie fergusson] - Simply the best !!
[maarten van lijden] - Must... have... Porsche 911 Turbo... :D
[tony fry] - Long live the legend
[jon beardsley] - Dale Northcott tell me you don't want one now.
[dustin james allen] - #dreamcarivebeenwaitingfor
[actionman keith] - Want one, but never driven one. They say NEVER meet your childhood heroes. Should I or shouldn't I ? Inbox me, im well over due a new car.
[stephen coles] - Hate hate hate enter the nissan gtr
[ed the-frog] - yawn
So it's slower than a GTR doesn't handle as well either but yet the blinkered author of this piece chooses to prattle on by saying the 911 is a finer, more rounded proposition: arguably the ultimate everyday supercar.What a load of cods-wallop!
[rumen stoyanov] - Porsche Ryan my friend is NO underdog ......
[ryan charger sliski] - I love porsche's because the design is that good they have had little need to majorly change it! A lot of people don't understand these cars and that's why i love them the underdog always gets my attention
[anthony taliercio] - Ricky Harrison Roland Breadner pony up
[milan ihelka] - it costs more than GT-R and it´s got same price as MP4-C..but GT-R and McLaren look better and they are faster-...and they don´t looklike a VW Beetle..:P
[ian walters] - It's a Porsche...big deal
[desmond cloete] - So what! The design hasn't changed much over the years, its a porche... And you people that comment negatively about the car, will more than likely NOT ever get the chance to drive it. By the way,.. To some of you blind idiots, that's a porche and not a beetle! Zoom in or out or whatever on your screen then you will see!
[chris selders] - That blindness bit is a myth!!!!
[curt jansson] - I´ll have one blue, one silver and one white, please...
[james roquemore] - If the 1911 Turbo S is that, then what is the Bugatti then?
[callum joshua ryan] - God! What a amazing car!! Dam my business must come off the ground I want want!!
[jay dee] - Paul Tegg mmmmmm
[james tipping] - I purchaced my 911 from the supercar show room he had a 700 hp gtr there he said it was quicker And more brutal than most cars he has traded f40s to enzo to lambos but most people dont but a super car for raw brutal power or reliability they but them for heritage breed pedigree
[marcel wolbui] - 9 / 11 Illuminati
[altaaf rahman] - The GT is better!!
[alex filz] - Yea an amazing car. That amazing that's it's behind every super car going!!! That's German engineering for you.
[jim logue] - Looks very 'new'.
[njabulo molefe] - Beautifully as ever machine!!!
[neville brook] - Pure, vicious thrust...Nice shape is it new!
[dan stockero] - Oh weird it still looks exactly the same as all the other ones.
[david sbona] - Ultimate Super Car. There is no substitute.
[ariel elbaz] - Wow!!!!! My love ♥♥♥
[bridgett l whelan] - Beautiful car. My dream car.
[benjamin t. ljunggren] - It does actually look new...
[nelson nellyman phitlho] - Nice car!...! i think thiz tym the american have engineered a motor vehicle
[denise veerman] - Yes! Here is my dream and dreamcar! Who can make it come true?
[steve lowdell] - I agree ryan..manual is good .. but not as quick as tip..time between shifts can make all the difference.
[ash moffatt] - And that looks the same as ever other Porsche
[nhlanhla-sweet zwane] - Childhood dreamcar!
[ryan flynn] - No manual = LAME. The PDK is great for track duty and that's fine if its exclusive for the track specific GT2 and GT3, but the Turbo and Turbo S are STREET CARS. Flipping a paddle shifter offers none of the connected visceral experience of shifting a proper manual.
[james tipping] - The gtr every car thief wants to nick it and every boy racer wants to race you as for being in expensive to repair i have heard a gearbox in a gtr if it goes wrong can cost up in excess of 10k
[steve lowdell] - Even stock the gtr is better value for money..but thats my opinion..driven porkas astons and gtrs...each have their plus points and negative points..each to their own.
Top Gear: "Human eyes cannot cope with the force of the acceleration". We've just been driving the new Po - 150th Comments
[steve lowdell] - Oh, im no "badge snob" value for money is what I look for
[steve lowdell] - You need to read up on the MY13 GTR specs, 0-100mph in 7 seconds, "book" top end 198 mph..same as the porka.. still half the price to buy and run. The porka is ok if you have very deep pockets..the GTR can be afforded by a wider populace. Plus the nissan reliability. Last year, between ALL the recovery services in the uk, only 2 gtrs were attended due to breakdown. I only know this as I am in the market for buying a new car for myself, my choices were Aston Martin (unreliable), porka (mega expensive servicing and parts) GTR ( not as expensive as a porka to run and upkeep and highly tuneable..650 bhp for no money)
[james tipping] - If it aint broke dont fix it the porsche 911 iconic
[daland bailey] - Must have been written by Hammond. :)
[dwight areg kmarinsore] - lovely car with lovely name, porche
[gareth nnc rich] - Porsche are getting boring now
[kevin vin akins] - White with cognac interior please!
[chris carter] - Porsche is rubbish. All of them looks exactly as the same as the older model. You might get a different shape spoiler but other than that, you're getting the same car with a few little changes here and there. Only porsche that is worth buying is the carrera gt is the only one that looks different.
[rob duthart] - My hennesey Venom is a bit faster.
[james thom] - 911 GT2 RS is a quicker 911, so wrong!!!
[valter do vale] - New? Looks the same for me...
[alhassan muhammad] - Please which is faster the lamboghini sesto elemento or the bugatti Veron
[blake goodwin] - They took the exhaust tips from a Panamera Turbo -_-.
[shaun stocks] - Kevin Welstead ...yes I have been thinking about an upgrade !
[kevin welstead] - This is an epic machine, Shaun Stocks I think you should consider next time! :-)
[malcolm rydstr kotze] - that dosent look like a beetleto me u may need glasses
[kral jeliman] - porse no lamborgyni yes
[mohammad usman ur rab] - thats a real sports car :D
[alessio molina] - I remember the first time I kicked down on my 911 GT3, and my sight temporarily got slightly 'green' because of the brutal acceleration... Awesome experience!
[daryl adriano] - (Jeremy was being sarcastic)
[daryl adriano] - Jeremy Clarkson's favourite car, it still looks like da Porsche 911 from 1963
[david shoulder] - Pretty boring to be honest.
[james tipping] - I have a 911 i didnt buy it to have it compared to a gtr or anything else for that matter as with most 911 owners they buy them because of the years of germany engineering and technology and the pedigree of the 911 it may not be the fastest the best looking or the best handling car but the car as a package is awesome on every level and as a day to day vehicle it is a class winner i for one love mine.
[gary c sema] - it looks so cooool!!!
[kokeletso nako motlhagodi] - If turbos keep improving at this rate, we will be reaching an acceleration of 0-60 mph in a second soon.
[nicolas marie] - Nice!!! For jeremy clarkson ;-)
[dawn mckenzie] - Check it out awesum lol
[abdo mahmoud] - Ibrahim Mahmoud El Sayed
[adrián casado torres] - It's nice when you see an S on the license plate
[chris kolk] - Cam Greiter Although I'm sure you already know about it :P
[melusi bhembe] - dream grlfwnd! Swit ride
[justin o'donnell] - Oh look, a Volkswagon Beetle.
[marcus hollely] - Why compare this proper race bred sports car with a wanky playstation nissan?
[matty westerman] - Ollie Cottam your dream car haha
[izaiah kolowitz] - Oh yes I love Porsche
[rich farrow] - People quoting the GTR's 0-62 need to remember Porsche is well known for giving very conservative figures.
[will morris] - Just a jumped up beetle id prefer a maserati gran sport
[jimmy mendoza] - I do wish GM would work on an awd Vette ZO6 and ZR1 they'd easily become 2 sec. club members... a ZL1 Camaro awd, a awd CTSv... there would be a crowd in that club... but until then a good set of drag radials will get er done... :-)
[jason michaeli] - Great car except you cannot get a manual transmission.
[graham thompson] - I must win the lottery and buy one of these!
