The 911 featured all the necessary features for police duty, including a light bar on the roof and radio system. Plus, the blue and red Polizei livery looked fantastic on the Porsche.
Czech Republic BMW i8
For six months in 2017, this BMW i8 had a spot in the Czech Republic police fleet. The colorful law enforcement livery looked great on the hybrid sports coupe.
Milan Police Ferrari 458 Spider
This Ferrari 458 Spider was once the pride and joy of an Italian mobster. However, the cops in Milan confiscated the supercar and gave it a police livery. The lights on top of the roof nacelles were a neat touch, too.
The police there didn't use it for patrol duty, though. Instead, the cops showed the Ferrari off at events in an effort to tell young people that crime doesn't pay.
The 602-horsepower coupe is in the hands of the Highway Patrol in Bologna, Italy, to use as a high-speed first-aid vehicle and as a transporter for organs. The supercar's front section is refrigerated for keeping blood and tissue fresh. There's also a defibrillator onboard.
Carabinieri Jeep Wrangler
Officers in Italy's Carabinieri can now do their best Baywatch impression by patrolling the Romagna coastline in this Jeep Wrangler. For off-road duty, it features a two-inch suspension lift and 32-inch tires. Flashing lights and a siren make sure that people get out of the way.
Sussex Police Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge
No one wants to take a trip in the back of a police car, but if you're going to the clink, it would be a lot more comfortable in the rear of a Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge.
"We hope the car will act as a conversation starter, which gives us the opportunity to engage with people, but more importantly those hard-to-reach groups like young drivers, and offer practical advice as well as describing what can happen when things go wrong," Chief Constable Simon Bailey said about the Porsche.
Swedish Police Volvo V90
The Volvo V90 is a vehicle that serves most of its time transporting families in style, comfort, and safety. It must be a somewhat surreal experience to look in the rearview mirror and see this wagon's lights flashing.
While Japan has a Nissan GT-R actually serving as a police vehicle, this one is a complete flight of fancy.
Created for the 2017 New York Auto Show, this beast served the fictional Skyline Metro Police Department. It featured a black body with gold stripes, a light bar on the roof, and even more flashing illumination on the bull bar up front. The powertrain was stock, but adjustable coilovers provided a meaner stance.
Riverside Police Department Saleen S302
While not a patrol vehicle, the Riverside Police Department in California has one of the coolest Mustang's around with its 730-horsepower (544-kilowatt) supercharged Saleen S302.
Rather than chasing down speeders, the Riverside Police use this Mustang as an eye-catching vehicle for shows, parades, and other special events.
Queensland Police Kia Stinger
With both Holden and Ford ending vehicle production in Australia, the nation's police forces need replacements for their Commodores and Falcons. The state of Queensland has picked the Kia Stinger as its new vehicle for highway patrol duty with plans of eventually procuring 200 of them.
These Stingers get a lightbar, police graphics, and the other necessary modifications for duty has a cop car. Power comes from the model's 3.3-liter biturbo V6 that pumps out 365 horsepower (272 kilowatts) and 376 pound-feet (510 Newton-meters).
Victoria Police BMW 530d
While the highway patrol cops in Queensland will be driving Kia Stingers, their colleagues in Victoria will be behind the wheel of the BMW 530d. These 5 Series won't be as luxurious as the ones in dealers because the police force will specify them in a basic, entry-level specification. The model's 3.0-liter turbodiesel inline six produces 265 horsepower (195 kilowatts) and 457 pound-feet (620 Newton-meters) of torque.
Mercedes-AMG E43 4MATIC
While some of the cops in the Australian state of Victoria have the 530d, others get to drive the Mercedes-AMG E43 4MATIC. It's biturbo 3.0-liter V6 produces 396 horsepower (295 kW), which should be plenty for a high-speed pursuit.
NYPD Smart ForTwos
Could there be anything more embarrassing than getting a parking ticket from someone driving a Smart ForTwo?
The New York Police Department has hundreds of these little cars patrolling the Big Apple's streets. For officers, the ForTwos are a big upgrade over the previous trikes because the Smart vehicles have air conditioning.
Police cars have to endure hundreds of thousands of miles of hard work patrolling the streets. Generally, this job is left to boring looking sedans and SUVs that are tough enough to put up with the abuse. Police forces around the world have figured out ways to incorporate some extremely interesting machines into their fleets, though. Porsches, Lamborghinis, Ferraris, and more have given cops something more exciting to drive.
Click the arrow above for a just a taste of some of the amazing vehicles patrolling the roads around the world. Stay to the end to see three models that we feel sorry for any cops that have to drive them on a regular basis.
