Dip into the throttle any deeper, however, and
you're greeted by an instantaneous surge of thrust
that is smooth in its application yet scary in its
results. It's not abrupt or violent, just a
perfectly orchestrated sequence of spooling
turbos, shifting gears and chirping tires. As the
battle between the massive rear tires and the
electronic traction control rages on beneath you,
the car builds speed at a ferocious pace, pushing
into triple-digit territory with an ease that
makes you wonder how — and why — it's even legal.
Get off the throttle and the big coupe settles
back into its former life, whisking along in
silence while Porsches play catch-up.
