10 Best 2017 All-Wheel-Drive Sports Cars

Porsche 911 Turbo S

More than a German automobile manufacturer of high performance sports cars, the Porsche brand reflects a lifestyle with legendary status. The 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S is at the top of its class with its ready-for-action design, which is one of the only 2-door sports coupes in its class that has 4 seats and usable cargo space. The 911 Turbo S is equipped with V6 twin turbo 3.8 L engine with 580 HP. This is comparable to the Audi R8, which has a V10 plus and 610 HP. The 911 Turbo S offers up to 19 mpg city and 24 mpg highway, while the Audi R8 offers a V10 Plus with up to 14 mpg city and 22 mpg highway.

The 911 Turbo S starts around $188,100 dollars and the 911 Turbo starts around $159,200 dollars. It is safe to say that should you choose to go with the regular Turbo you will not give up the quiet, soft, and comfortable ride, but you will be leaving a minus 20 HP on the table. The inner beauty of the 911 Turbo S will take you from 0-60 in 2.6 seconds vs. the lengthy 4.4 seconds a non-turbo 911 models takes to go from 0-60. If you’re going to do something do it right—but we’re not sure there’s anyway to go wrong when you master the roads in a Porsche 911, Turbo S or not.
