When it comes to evaluating today's top high-performance vehicles, it's pretty hard to leave out the Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S. That's because both models are completely insane animals. 

With every iteration of the 911, these two variants are the best representation of the pinnacle of engineering for pure speed and daily driving duty. Need further proof? 

If you haven't already experienced it, I dare you to engage Launch Control on either and try to not feel as though you're being sent on a mission to the moon. The G-forces are incredible. 

But, here's the thing: There's an awful lot of competition in this price range now. And, the enemies have been studying the tried and true 911. 

Can the Porsche remain the king of its respective domain? 

Eco finds out in this review. See a portion of the company's verdict, below.

...In terms of rivals, few are able to match the dynamic abilities of the 911 Turbo, but that doesn’t mean the Turbo is the automatic choice. Starting within £1000 of each other, the base Turbo has the Audi R8 V10 and McLaren 540C to compete with, both raising the stakes by offering a mid-engine layout and arguably more interesting power units.

The Audi also counters the 
Turbo Cabrio with the excellent Spyder, although McLaren has yet to produce a drop-top 540C. If you're looking for something a little more extreme, the Audi R8 Plus (£138k) and McLaren 570S (£143k) both undercut the Turbo S.
