When it comes to some of the fastest street-legal vehicles, Porsche is always building a car that is near the top. We know that some modded Porsche’s can be quicker than the 918 Spyder, but we are specifically going off of factory numbers in relation to the fastest Porsche. So what does the fastest Porsche mean? There are many metrics to go off of such as 0-60 times, top speed, power numbers, and quarter-mile times. Those are what we are going to be going off of for the top 7 fastest Porsche’s.
With technological innovations come faster vehicles, look at the Porsche Taycan Turbo S for example. We’ll go into more detail below, but the Taycan is an electric vehicle that was first introduced in 2019 and it stands second on the list for the fastest Porsche’s. The performance numbers listed below are pulled from various sources. In this post, we’ll be going over the top 7 fastest street-legal Porsche’s to date, as of 2022. The numbers we will be providing are as follows: 0-60 times, top speed, horsepower, torque, quarter-mile times, base MSRP, and approximate value of the vehicles, as of 2022.

7. Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS
The Porsche Carrera 4 GTS was first introduced in 2017 and is still being produced today. It is probably one of the lesser common 911’s on this list. The 4 GTS comes in a coupe version or cabriolet. Porsche continues to push the limits with this vehicle and is slowly making it one of the fastest street-legal Porsche’s on the road. Featuring a 3.0L twin-turbo boxer 6 engine with an option of an 8-speed PDK automatic or 7-speed manual transmission. In the newest 2022 model year, the Carrera 4 GTS is putting down 473hp and 420lb-ft of torque.
Coming in at #7, the Porsche Carrera 4 GTS posts a 0-60 time of 3.1 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package and PDK automatic transmission. It runs an 11.5-second quarter-mile, also with the Sport Chrono Package and PDK automatic transmission. Lastly, the top track speed comes out to 192mph. Not bad for a vehicle starting out at $144,000.
Base MSRP: $144,000 (as of 2022)
6. Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid
The Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid is another example of Porsche creating innovative systems and vehicles. It was first introduced in 2013 as part of the 2013 Panamera facelift. Many questioned a sedan Porsche, especially when Sedans were starting to slowly die off at the time, and still are. However, the Panamera S E-hybrid was different. Not only can it seat 5, but it also is a rocket. The S E-hybrid features an electric motor and a 4.0L V8 twin-turbo that collectively put down 671hp and 627lb-ft of torque.
Coming in at #6, the Panamera S E-Hybrid posts a 0-60 time of 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 196mph. As a sedan, you would be surprised that the S E-Hybrid runs a quarter-mile time of 11.1 seconds at 125mph.
Base MSRP: $189,800 (as of 2022)
5. Porsche 911 GT3
One of the very popular Porsche 911 GT, the Porsche 911 GT3 was first introduced in 1999, also known as the 996 GT3, and is still being produced today. The fastest GT3 that we are referring to is the newest version 992 GT3. It features a 4.0L NA engine with a 7-speed automatic transmission with RWD. It puts down 502hp and 346lb-ft of torque, which doesn’t differ too much from the previous 991.2 GT3. However, Porsche has further developed its launch-control system to increase the 0-60 times by nearly 0.4 seconds.
Coming in at #5, the 992 GT3 posts 0-60 times of 3.2 seconds, according to Porsche’s factory numbers. However, we have seen multiple articles of independent testers claiming the 0-60 time is closer to 2.7 seconds. As an NA engine, it boasts some serious track numbers. It runs a 10.8-second quarter-mile at 128mph and can go up to a top track speed of 197mph.
Base MSRP: $161,100 (as of 2022)
4. Porsche 911 GT2 RS
An also very popular 911 GT is the 911 GT2 RS. The GT2 RS was first introduced in 2010 and is known as the 997 GT2 RS. Some Porsche enthusiasts claim that this vehicle is the GT3 RS big brother, and for good reason. The fastest GT2 RS we’re referencing is the 991 GT2 RS which was introduced in 2019. It features a powerful 3.8L twin-turbo flat-6 engine that is fitted with a 7-speed automatic transmission with RWD. Often regarded as one of the fastest 911’s ever built, it puts out 690hp and 550lb-ft of torque.
Coming in at #4, the 991 GT2 RS boasts an impressive 0-60 time of 2.6 seconds with a top speed of 211mph. It runs a quarter-mile time of 10.3 seconds at 138mph. Now you can understand why it’s proclaimed as the most powerful 911 produced, so far. An interesting fact is that Porsche is producing a 911 GT2 RS Clubsport, starting at $625,000, but is only producing 30 units total. If you happen to be in the US, they’re only sending 6 units overseas, so it will be VERY difficult to get your hands on one of those.
Base MSRP: $293,200 (as of 2019)
3. Porsche 911 Turbo S
The Porsche 911 Turbo is a staple in the brand’s history and forever will be. It was first introduced in 1975 and is still being produced today. When it comes to the fastest 911 Turbo S, we are referring to the 992 Turbo S, which is the newest generation by Porsche. It features a 3.8L flat-six engine with bigger Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG) turbos than its predecessor, the 991 Turbo S. The 992 Turbo S puts down 640hp and 590lb-ft of torque with an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Coming in at #3, the 992 Turbo S boasts an impressive 0-60 time of 2.6 seconds while achieving a top speed of 205mph. We have seen reports of it running a 0-60 time of 2.2 seconds, but seems very aggressive given Porsche’s factory numbers read 2.6 seconds. It runs a quarter-mile of 10.1 seconds at 137mph, just short of a sub 10 quarter-mile.
Base MSRP: $207,000 (as of 2022)
2. Porsche Taycan Turbo S
The Porsche Taycan Turbo S, originally called Porsche Mission E, was first shown to the public in Frankfurt in 2015. However, it began mass production in 2019. It was Porsche’s first electric vehicle and was wildly successful. In fact, it sold 20,000 units in 2020 making up about 7% of Porsche’s overall 2020 volume. To top it off, the Taycan was awarded performance car of the year in 2021. The Taycan Turbo S is equipped with a performance battery plus (93kWh) that puts down an impressive 751hp and 774lb-ft of torque all with a two-speed transmission with AWD.
Coming in at the second fastest street-legal Porsche, the all-electric vehicle runs a 0-60 time of 2.6 seconds. Although it only tops out at 161mph, it is plenty fast to take anything off the line, except for a few cars on the market. It also boasts an impressive quarter-mile time with 10.48 @131.8mph.
Base MSRP: $185,000 (as of 2022)
1. Porsche 918 Spyder
