The true price of the Porsche 911 Turbo

What else might your $149,250 for a Turbo, or $182,050 for a Turbo S, buy you? Use this handy diagram.

When sales begin later this year, the new Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S will be among the fastest machines on the road.

At $149,250 for the Turbo and $182,050 for the S, they will also cost thousands more than their immediate predecessors – saying nothing of some worthy, less expensive competitors.

This prompted a consideration of what kind of toys Turbo money could otherwise buy – bearing in mind that a Porsche customer would not cross-shop a Turbo S with, say, seven $25,000 Volkswagen GTIs.
