We consider shape functionals of the form $F_q(\Omega)=P(\Omega)T^q(\Omega)$ on the class of open sets of prescribed Lebesgue measure. Here $q>0$ is fixed, $P(\Omega)$ denotes the perimeter of $\Omega$ and $T(\Omega)$ is the torsional rigidity of $\Omega$. The minimization and maximization of $F_q(\Omega)$ is considered on various classes of admissible domains $\Omega$: in the class $\mathcal{A}_{all}$ of all domains, in the class $\mathcal{A}_{convex}$ of convex domains, and in the class $\mathcal{A}_{thin}$ of thin domains.
