What is the best Porsche supercar on the market today?


There are many beautiful supercars in the world that now adorn the market – and there’s no-one who does supercars quite like Porsche.

The German brand may be defined by its 911series, but there are also plenty of other fantastic models to suit.

Porsche 911 Turbo S

Okay, let’s start with the 911 Turbo S. Aside from almost £19,000, there’s not too much that separates the 911 Turbo and its S edition. This range boasts amazing performance, going from 0-62mph in less than three seconds. With a performance to trump even the fastest of supercars, but the practicality to worry high performance saloons, the 911 Turbo S is one of the most all-rounded supercars on the market. 

911 GT3 RS 4.0

Its year of manufacture may have been some eight years ago, but the best supercars never go out of date, and the 911 GT3 RS echoes that sentiment. With a ton of fantastic features designed to enhance its performance, its impeccably stylish look is an added bonus. The 3.8 to four litre engine associated with the 911 GT3 RS is completely unique to itself and in comparison to other Porsche models; its 500 bhp is impressively high. 

With an 8800 rpm powerful tachometer, it’s a supercar perfect for the race track. Not only is it lightweight, but you can bet your bottom dollar it’s able to trump 0.62mph in less than four seconds (though still marginally behind the Turbo S). 

2016 Boxster Spyder

The Boxster Spyder is undoubtedly one of the best Porsche releases to date and one of the greatest supercars on the market. A perfect hybrid of the previous Boxster and the Cayman S, both its performance and design features are near perfect. With a horsepower of 375 @ 67000 rpm and a 309 lb-ft @4750 rpm, the flat six engine makes for direct fuel injection. With up to six transmission speeds, users can go from 0-60mph in just four seconds. Plus, for a supercar of this nature, at 17mpg, it’s rather efficient.

Cayman R

Up there also is the Cayman R. The model is still being released today, meaning any aspiring buyers are able to purchase it with relative ease. Brimming with top-notch features, its light weight makes for a brilliant speed of 326 bhp @ 7400 rpm (what more could you ask for, really?). Capable of a 4.2 second 0-62mph transition, the Cayman R prides itself on speed as much as its sleek design. The twin-clutch manual gearbox is capable of up to six speeds, topping 175mph. To maximise its flexibility in movement, the model incorporates weight reduction techniques allowing for a flat six litre engine and horsepower of 330 rpm. 

It’s hard to narrow it down to just one Porsche supercar, but if we had to choose, we’d put the 911 Turbo S as the best supercar on the market. However, we think finding insurance for such a supercar may just be as tricky as choosing the best model. That said, Call Wiser is on hand with some brilliant rates, supercar or no supercar.
