0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds
The experience: With its prototypical sports-car shape, this machine of bank-account destruction (to cover speeding tickets) won me over at the first squirt of throttle. The Turbo used to be a scary monster, but now those genius Germans have made the car much more powerful - and, counterintuitively, much easier to handle. It wins as a daily driver as well as the most usable supercar.
The verdict: Once again Porsche has built the ultimate rear-engine high-performance car.
