Since graduating university over 15 years ago, I’ve been back only a handful of times, but this fall an opportunity came up for a mini-reunion with some of my good friends, and the timing all worked out for us. So I needed a car.

Well, after being limited to just a few minutes behind the wheel of Porsche’s mind-blowing 911 Turbo S at AJAC’s TestFest, I had to have more. The 911 has long been my number one lottery pick, and it would come down to this or the GT3 for my latest update.

So I set out with the pinnacle of 911 performance to find out if it would capture my heart as it captured the Best New Prestige/Performance Car category in AJAC’s Car of the Year proceedings.
