Saabs may have been born from jets, but even the mightiest SPG has no place on a runway alongside the F-22 Raptor. The current 911 Turbo S has a spec sheet that reads more like the ultimate air superiority fighter than a mere road car. Dynamic roll control, dynamic boost, and a whole bevy of acronyms that sound more like missile systems than performance enhancing options only add to the illusion. With PCCB, PSM, DRC already on the list of standard features, what’s a JSOW between friends? In this CGI spotlight on the 991 Turbo S, Bipolar visual studio and Zelig sound pair the ultimate turbocharged 911 against the first Fifth Generation fighter jet.
While nothing about the 911 Turbo is designed to reduce radar cross-section (as far as we know), the car does share some attributes with the F-22. The Turbo’s emphases are on enhancing maneuverability, and true multi-role capability, much like the fighter. While the F-22’s roles are substantially more threatening than the Turbo’s, both are capable of a varied mission set. The Turbo is equally happy on track, daily driving and covering great distances at speed. The F-22 on the other hand is much better suited to air superiority, ground attack and signal intelligence roles. Dropping by the local ball park isn’t on its mission list, that job is best left to Marine helicopters.
