personally I think it cost more for Porsche to twin turbo the 911 vs single so cost wasn't the issue, and I don't believe they were going after the "boy racer" by using twin turbos as a lure so i don't feel thats the reason. So aside from emmisions, which I do feel had a large hand in the decision, I think "turbo lag" is on the top 5 list of reasons to twin turbo the 911. Twins respond quicker than a like sized (power wise) single and people want instant gratification. Look at every other manufacturer that has a performance turbocharged vehicle, they have gone twins or sequential to make the power band seemless and instant.

But ultimately the reason I am going with twins is "because".
