Five Porsche 911s I’m looking forward to driving in 2015 – Lee’s choices
With our feet now firmly back under the desk at Total 911 since the start of 2015, we’ve had some time to think about the Porsche 911s we’re looking forward to driving in the year ahead. Here are Editor, Lee’s five choices:
We first revealed the 991 GT3 to the world nearly two years ago in issue 99 of Total 911 but, thanks to a fire or two and then the ensuing bout of recalls, I’ve still not driven one! Thankfully that’s days away from being put right and I’m already having dreams about the sound of that flat six howl at 9,000rpm…
The first Turbo of 1975 started an icon that’s still alive more than 40 years later. I’m familiar with the seemingly omnipotent capabilities of the 991 Turbo and Turbo S, but what was it about the first Turbo that made it THE poster car of the Seventies and Eighties? I look forward to sharing my experience in the magazine.
It’s been well documented here on Total911.com that the new Porsche 911, due to arrive in the second half of 2015, will signal a huge revolution as Zuffenhausen’s darling sportscar goes turbocharged. I can’t wait to find out how Porsche has future-proofed the 911 without seriously blemishing its unrivalled history and reputation.
The only 964 I drove in 2014 was a Carrera 2 Targa from the factory with less than 2,000 kilometres on the clock. I was left smitten by it and wish to experience the 3.2 Carrera’s successor again, in basic Carrera form or otherwise.
Simply phenomenal power delivery coupled with rear-drive only and few driver aids. The 997 GT2 is one of the last extreme turbocharged 911s and its relatively low production numbers mean only a few will experience its thrill.
