2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S

2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S in the pit lane of the reborn old Kyalami race circuit in South Africa. Sitting left seat is Jörg Bergmeister, a Porsche factory race car driver and a man I see with some frequency on Porsche media trips. He’s here in South Africa to lead packs of journalists around the supersmooth new circuit in 911 Turbos and Turbo S’s, and he seems perfectly happy to do so. In fact, he always seems happy, ever ready with a smile, unless you try to bump-pass him on the last lap of a race.
 At least when I’m not trying to figure out how he can carry so much speed through a corner or rotate the car with such accuracy. I’d driven the Turbo S several laps earlier in the day with Bergmeister showing me the way in a GT3 RS. Seemed like I was going pretty fast then; but I wasn’t, at least not compared to what we’re doing now.
