Never heard of a Porsche X50? Most people havent, as its a Turbo option package, not a stand-alone model. The X50 package must be specified at build time and cannot be retrofitted. The substance of it resides beneath the Turbos rear wing in the form of modified turbochargers (more boost), larger intercoolers, and more aggressive engine-control programming. It takes the standard Turbos 420-horse rating up to 450 and creates a choice in between the Turbo (base MSRP of $116,200) and the 462-horsepower, rear-drive-only GT2 ($181,700). The upgrade costs an additional $17,880. Why buy an X50-ized Turbo instead of the GT2? Its not a question of better or worse, just choice, as the package allows you to buy an ultra-hot Porsche with all-wheel drive and a Tiptronic trans if you wish, neither of which is available on the lighter, maximum-performance GT2.
