2014 Porsche 911 Turbo Lime Gold by Porsche Exclusive

If exclusivity is your fancy, then a 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo might suit your needs. But if that level of exclusivity isn’t exclusive enough, then the kind folks at Porsche have an answer: Porsche Exclusive.

That’s right, contact Porsche and for the right price, they’ll build your sports car almost any way you like it through their in-house customizing division. Case in point, this 2014 911 Turbo painted in a unique shade dubbed Lime Gold Metallic. The paint, however is only the starting point with this car. Blacked-out bi-xenon headlights and clear taillights, along with a deeper tint on the windows help move this 911 further away from normalcy.

Inside the story is much the same. The owner wanted everything finished in a deep chocolate brown contrasted by seats finished in the same Lime Gold Metallic hue the exterior is treated to. Talk about melting in your mouth…

Porsche will happily take your custom order with the help of two U.S. salesmen – one on each coast – who’s sole job is helping Porschephiles make their German sports car or SUV a personalized statement of their individualized taste.

Mechanically, this 911 Turbo is bone stock. Its 3.8-liter, twin-turbo flat-six still produces a monstrous 520 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque sent to all four wheels. Zero to 60 mph times are laughably quick at 3.2 second, while the quarter-mile will likely scare you as the 3,500-pound car rockets past the line in a hair’s breath over 10 seconds. Phenomenal.

As stated above the jump, the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo is pretty quick. Its flat-six, twin-turbocharged engine makes an impressive amount of horsepower to the tune of 520 and torque comes in at 487 pound-feet. Porsche’s impressive all-wheel drive makes the 911 as capable a snowmobile as a track car (fitted with the proper snow tires, of course).

Weighing in at a scant 3,500 pounds, the rear-engine sports car is a symphony of automotive perfection. Four occupants can share the experience as the 911 is a 2+2 coupe. While the back seats are more purposed for shorter trips down the drag strip or to the local five-star restaurant, small children will find them more accommodating yet no less trilling at 200 mph.

Starting price for a 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo is $149,250. Opt for the Turbo S model, and the price jumps to $182,050, although the ratio of fun/cost is probably justifiable.
