What is it like on the inside?
It does actually feel a bit classic 911 in here, narrower and more cramped than the cars which followed and with fairly ungainly airbag installation on the overly large steering wheel (see also, Ferrari F355). The ignition barrel is also built into the dashboard, rather than the steering column. Though to be fair, current Porsches ape that positioning with their fake-key starter button thingy…
There’s also a quite invigorating lack of buttons, simply because there are no driving modes to worry about. No PSM, PDK, PASM; the buttons circling the manual gear lever instead lock the doors, activate the hazard warning lights or open the sunroof.
Plenty will be familiar to drivers of more modern 911s, though. A digital speedometer is nestled in the centre of the classic five dial layout Porsche continues with now, even if 80 per cent of it’s now TFT. And sure, cynical members of the internet commenting community, 911s can look a bit samey on the outside… but it means they’re always light and airy inside - and possessing two rear seats in a Turbo - while those voluptuous front wings arc beautifully forwards, pointing helpfully towards where you’ll end up when those turbos are lit.
