Inside, the new Turbo is pretty much similar to previous 997 Turbos bar the optional steering wheel with the gear change paddles and PDK gear lever.

911 Turbo PDK prices start from $652,888 depending on what you tick on the options list. The PCCB ceramic brakes ($31,090), Sport Chrono Package ($14,400), PTV ($4,670) on the test car here are options. In addition, one can spec his Turbo with the $19,110 Aerokit, $10,620 bucket seats and a variety of interior trim and colours for personalization. But you do get a five-year maintenance free programme with every new Porsche.

The new 911 Turbo is another testament of the brilliant engineers at Porsche. It is truly amazing that a design that is criticized for having its engine in the wrong place can defy convention and physics to entrench itself as one of the supercar greats of all time.
