Ferrari’s Twin Turbo 488 GTB Meets Porsche’s Ballistic 911 Turbo S

It may not be the direct comparison everyone is waiting for the Ferrari 488GTB, but pitting the Porsche 911 Turbo S against it really draws some interesting conclusions.

Ferrari’s decision to replace the screaming, naturally aspirated V8 of the 458 with a cleaner twin-turbo unit may have disappointed a few people but on the other hand it resulted to the first turbocharged mid-engined model since the F40. Not to mention the frankly ridiculous 660hp power figure, courtesy of the new 3.9-litre V8.

With so much oomph on tap, the Ferrari 488GTB can sprint from zero to 62mph (0-100km/h) in 3 seconds flat and onto 124mph (0-200km/h) in a breathtaking 8.3 seconds. All this firepower is accompanied with the company’s latest solutions in aerodynamics and engine management, making sure that their new supercar will provide tons of grip and emotion under any circumstance.

Porsche’s fastest iteration of the 911 has gained the fame of a true ballistic machine, thanks to its smart four-wheel drive system and that turbocharged flat-six at the back which now makes 572hp and incorporates some of the most impressive tech in the market.

The end result is a car that’s not only mind-blowingly fast in any situation but also one that you can trust for your daily commute as well, executing the recipe of the everyday supercar in perhaps the best way possible.

Auto Express
decided to compare the two models on UK roads, despite the difference in price, trying to find out which one works better for use on public roads. No matter the outcome, we are still waiting to see how this new kind of Ferrari fairs against its main rival from Woking…
