Porsche 997 Turbo S Experience at Exotics Racing Vegas
The Porsche 997 Turbo S at Exotics Racing of Las Vegas is the quickest exotic car they have in their fleet. Now that’s saying something since their fleet is comprised of some of the fastest cars in the world including 2 Lamborghini Aventadors (1 on order), McLaren MP4-12C, Mercedes SLS AMG, Nissan GT-R, Ferrari 458, Lamborghini Superleggera and so on. Evidently their policy is to purchase the most desirable supercars priced under $1,000,000 and if enough people tell them that they would like to drive a certain exotic car that they don’t currently offer, then they wont hesitate to buy it. The Porsche 997 Turbo S is a very quick car, but feels slower than the Lamborghini Gallardo and Ferrari 458 to me because it is so quiet from the drivers seat. While the Lambo and Ferrari have loud roars, and jerk you back as you shift, the 997 Turbo S sounds more like an airplane taking off as your pushing the peddle down. While some will like how smooth the car is (its difficult to tell if you have shifted), I personally prefer the two Italian cars I drove for their loud roar, adding to my excitement. That being said, I am by no means stating that this car is tame or boring…quite the contrary. Its insanely fast and does a great job of raising your heart rate up as you have a tight “death grip” on the steering wheel as you negotiate the track. The intensity of the experience is shown all over my face…very difficult to stay composed as you go through the track – I embarrassingly kept puffing out my cheeks as my mind was so consumed with the intese experience of driving one of the world’s quickest cars. I would strongly recommend giving the 997 Turbo S a try at Exotics Racing of Las Vegas next time you’re in town.
