Because the engine is behind the rear wheels every Porsche 911 poses a challenge for the uninitiated. Therefore, we invite you to tame your 911 at a Porsche Track Experience. Mr. duPont’s 356 Speedster is incredibly agile thanks to a suspension that is years ahead of its time. But 130 horsepower doesn’t compare to the GT2 RS that offers 690. Channeling 553 lb-ft of twin-turbo torque to the tires is difficult, and its a real handful in the corners.
The rear tires want to outrun the fronts, and the phenomenon is known as “Snap Oversteer”. The mark of a true Porsche enthusiast is learning how much steering your beast allows before drifting starts. This is why the Turbo and Turbo S have been AWD since the 993 series, and the GT series demands respect in any situation. In addition to their main facility at Boxberg, the Porsche Experience in L.A. and Atlanta are great places to learn. Our dealers have all the info, so click the button to become a Porsche Master Driver.
