Porsche 911 Turbo Is The Perfect Supercar For A Winter

 CARSCOOPS:A Porsche 911 Turbo is already about the best winter-beater supercar on the planet thanks to its compact dimensions, great visibility, traction-boosting rear-biased weight distribution and all-wheel drive.

But this modified, Safari-style 911 Turbo spotted by Matt in or around Chicago looks like it could face down the kind of weather disaster only Hollywood can dream up.

The smaller door mirrors and non-LED taillight lenses tell us it’s a 997.1-generation 911 Turbo built between 2006 and 2008. These were the last cars with the famed Hans Mezger-designed flat-six, and it made 473 hp (480 PS) and up to 502 lb-ft (680 Nm) of torque in overboost mode. But if the 3.6-liter engine has been treated to the same level of upgrades lavished on the chassis, it could well be making far more.
