“The power comes on fast and smooth, with great gobs of torque found wherever you ask for it… a seemingly endless supply of tire-twisting propulsion. And all of it can be had with barely a hint of turbo lag. [The car loves] putting down that power with the steering wheel cocked. The more challenging the turn, the more eager the Turbo feels tackling it: powering in on entry, braking late, the body hunkering down while all four wheels grip and grip…And all on snow tires, no less.” Auto Week
