No laps times on here for the 540C, but plenty for the Turbo S.

Autozeitund did a test.
0-100 in 3 flat, but to 200 in 9 flat.
As fast as 911 Turbo S

Looks like their road cars are following their race cars.

Correct me if I am wrong, but this looks like exact same car as the 570S, only with slightly less power.

It reminds me of computer chip manufacturers downclocking CPUs, putting in different boxes and selling for less money.

What they are doing is spreading their model range to capture broader market. And every manufacturer is doing this to certain degree.

It's just slightly frustrating if these different offerings are so similar.

We shall blame Porsche first - there are more 911 model variants than there are drops in the Pacific Ocean.

I dont think McLaren makes good job with all that diffrent versions of the same car.
Its good to made one cheap version, but why to made few of them?
