Total 911 issue 144 now on sale
“Why £100,000?” That will undoubtedly be your first question when you see our six-figure superstars on the cover of Total 911 issue 144. The answer is two-fold.
It’s quite easy to spec a new 991.2 Carrera to £100,000 with a few options, so we wanted to investigate the similarly priced alternatives and a six-figure budget opens up one of the largest (and most diverse) selections of old and new Porsche 911s around.
From a pre-impact bumper 911E to a top of the range 991 Carrera GTS, £100,000 has the potential to satisfy pretty much every type of prospective Porsche buyer. We got behind the wheel of all our options to see which six-figure superstar offers the best bang for your buck.
The Porsche 930 also takes a staring roll in issue 144 with the first and last iterations of Zuffenhausen’s classic 911 Turbo going head-to-head in a battle of the 3.0-litre versus a G50-equipped 930 3.3.
We get behind the wheel of a 911R homage too. Based originally on a 912, a flat six has been swapped in under the decklid and a full rebuild has turned the car into a celebration of Porsche’s record-breaking run at Monza in 1967.
If you prefer a more modern flavour of Neunelfer, Lee gets behind the wheel of the latest 991.2 Carrera 2S and 4S to see if the now faster four-wheel drive package can provide more thrills than its rear-wheel drive counterpart.
