Take the 1991 edition of the fabled Porsche 911 Turbo. Back after another year-long furlough, it mixed old and new by combining the 964 body with the trademark 930 whale tail, ultra-wide back wheelarches, and 3.3-liter engine. Wheels were now 17-inch Speedline alloys spreading seven inches wide up front and nine inches in back. This 911 Turbo sports Michelin Pilot SX tires measuring 225/45/R17 fore and 255/40R17 aft. As usual, springs, shocks, anti-roll bars, and rear semi-trailing arms were all beefed-up from Carrera specs. Best of all, ABS was finally standard for this super-fast car that needed it more than ever.
The 1991 Porsche Turbo outpowered its '89 predecessor thanks to a 50 percent larger intercooler, a bigger blower with lower-mass turbine wheel, cleaner and smoother intake passages, and a new low-restriction exhaust system with three-way catalytic converter and a separate catalyst for the turbo's bypass valve. All this added 23 horses for a thumping 315 total in U.S. form; torque improved some 14 percent to 332 pound-feet, though it peaked 500 rpm higher, at 4,500.
Even better, given the world's rising environmental consciousness, this Turbo was cleaner at the tailpipe and easier on the ears. A five-speed manual transmission remain mandatory but was beefed up via stouter and wider ring and pinion gears to improve durability with the added power. Also new was an optional limited-slip differential, providing a 20 percent lock with throttle on and up to 100 percent with throttle off.
Final drive was unchanged, but the '91 Turbo had a 0.36 drag coefficient (down from 0.39), reflecting the smoother 964 styling, so official top speed was up 11 mph to 168. Claimed acceleration improved, too, with 0-60 available in 4.8 seconds instead of 5.3. Typically, Road & Track bettered Porsche's numbers with 4.6 seconds to 60 and a 12.9-second quarter-mile. "Suffice to say that the ['91] Turbo...is the quickest factory Porsche we've ever tested."
