Poll: Porsche 911 Turbo wins inter-generational battle

This week, we’re asking whether Mazda is asking a fair price for CarPlay and Android Auto.

The modern Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Edition has beaten out its older, rarer cousin in our latest poll.

Put head-to-head with the recently-auctioned 993 911 Turbo Project Gold, the modern Turbo won 61.6 per cent of the vote. Power in the Turbo S Exclusive comes from a 3.8-litre twin-turbo six-cylinder engine making 427kW and 700Nm.

It’s put to all four wheels through a seven-speed PDK transmission, for a sub three second sprint to 100km/h.

Project Gold is very, very different. It’s actually a 993 Turbo that’s been rebuilt from the ground up, with a new 3.6-litre twin-turbo engine making the same 335kW as the original.

It was auctioned for a terrifying $4.3 million last week.

Last week, we learned Mazda will charge $495 for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as a retrofit option. Would you pay for smartphone mirroring, or is the price of entry too steep?

UPDATE: It looks like Facebook is doing silly things with its embedded media, as the poll options are no longer appearing above. For now, if you’d like to vote, head to our¬†Facebook post. Otherwise, stay tuned for the results next week.
