The Porsche 911 Turbo is perfection.posted 11.19.05 - "Karleton Helfer is self motivated, goal driven and consistently recognized for exceeding objectives."
The combination of Sport Plus and launch control will shave another two-tenths. But never mind. Even at 3.5 seconds, the new Turbo beats the defunct GT2, the Ferrari 599GTB Fiorano, the Chevrolet Corvette Z06, the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, and about nine out of ten supercars we can think of.Shouldn't you be comparing the Turbo performance to the ZR1 at a Porsche price of $131K?
