Grand Touring: an exquisite taste of both (wo)man and machine, unhindered by plans or set schedules—simply the most relaxed and meaningful driving a human will ever do. Such a word evokes thoughts of hyper-exclusive classics, piddling around the streets of Monte Carlo and spirited bouts on hairpin-filled mountain passes in the highest heights of Italy. Yet Motor Trend host Jonny Lieberman attempts to show to the world that we Americans have a pretty phenomenal set of heavenly switchbacks and divine ribbons of asphalt in our very own backyard.
The vehicle in question? Porsche‘s latest 911 Turbo S. Just for some reference, this Teuton has a 560-hp turbocharged flat-6, a rapid-shifting 7-speed PDK dual-clutch, AWD, and room for two plus luggage. To see how this lucky Mr. Lieberman gets along, click on the window below. Enjoy!
