[00:00:00] European sports cars take center stage this week. I'm senior editor Greg Migliore and this is your Autoblog Minute Weekly Recap.

Porsche's 911 just got faster. The new 2017 911 Turbo and Turbo S improved both their 0-60 times and top speeds. For only 160 grand you can get your hands on the 540-hp base 911 Turbo. Not enough? Not a problem. For 28 grand more
