The GT3 legend has been growing fast over the past few years. But for using every day and traveling through cities, the Turbo S is still the ultimate 911. That's why all the celebrities pick it, and they'll continue to do so despite the relatively modest changes of this year's facelift.
By comparison, the 488 GTB could be considered an all-new car. Perhaps the roof is the same as on the 458, but everything else is different, especially the engine. The twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 has lost some of the animalistic passion of the old 4.5-liter, but performance has moved into an entirely different league. To be fair, both Ferrari and Porsche know how to make forced-induction engines that sound great and deliver linear power right to the red line.
The big surprise of this review is that both Auto Express editors say Ferrari has better suspension in the sense that it offers more grip and comfort. The 911 Turbo is known as the best everyday car in the world, but the bucking bronco from Italy is now showing it how it's done.
There's a car for everybody these days. The 911 will always have more cabin and luggage place due to its unique engine placement. All-wheel drive also gives it ways of dealing with the weather. But if you can afford any of these machines, is practicality really that important? After driving their supercar every day, many people sell them within a few months because the excitement and the drama are lost. So they should be kept for special occasions. Sorry Steve!
