The low-speed ride is no firmer than stock, and nicely rounds off short, sharp bumps. As speed rises, the ride quality stays taut, but the lack of spurious body movement on undulating roads makes it more comfortable. Understeer in the tighter bends is significantly reduced, and together with a pointier front end, you feel far more confident when really pressing on. You could say that the Werks One Turbo feels more like a AWD GT2 than a modified Turbo-no bad thing. The Werks One flagship combines that GT2 agility with the security of all-wheel drive, while delivering punch worthy of a major league supercar costing twice as much.
Despite what Maraj says about not attempting to be a TechArt or Gemballa, his team has succeeded in creating a well-balanced and very fast super-Porsche that can stand toe-to-toe with the best from the established German tuners.
