Ten days spent in Europe with a Porsche 911 Turbo S in your rear view mirror is always going to be an exciting prospect, when the turbo cuts in it sounds like a jet fighter. Covering some mesmerising roads in Italy and Switzerland the Turbo was right at home, and on its home turf of the autobahn in Germany as well...
Porsche have always produced sports cars that can also cover the practical side, two people in comfort with rear sets and a huge space under the bonnet made it the perfect companion to my Jaguar saloon on this ten day road trip. The Turbo S produces a stinking 530 bhp with 516 pound foot of torque, making this a supercar in terms of performance, 0-60 takes just 3 seconds! I was spoilt for choice of locations on this trip, Reims old race circuit in France, Tuscan backdrops in Chianti and the mountain tops of Switzerland. As this was a holiday I packed light and for the photos used the Nikon D810 and Sigma 50mm 1.4 art lens, with the warm light that was on offer all I had to do was some very light post editing to warm the colours up.

The Porsche 911 has some significant options, carbon ceramic brakes, carbon backed sports seats and a unique rear spoiler. The detail shots were taken at F2.2 with the other images of the car at F8, just to keep a sharpness and clarity to the photos. Our trip ended with a list to the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, nice way to finish the trip and see the evolution of the German sports car marque over the years.
