Making its world debut at the Geneva Auto Show will be a new flagship model for the 911 range. With 530hp and peak torque of 516 lb-ft, the car Turbo S will accelerate from 0-62mph in 3.3sec.
Drawing inspiration from previous Turbo S models dating back to 1998 and 2004, the Porsche engineers developed the 911 Turbo S in response to customer demand for greater power, performance and driving dynamics. At the heart of the car is a six-cylinder ‘boxer’ engine boosted by two turbochargers with variable turbine geometry. An increase in horsepower over the 911 Turbo of 30hp boosts peak output to 530hp. Despite its increase in power and performance, the new 911 Turbo S returns identical fuel consumption to the regular Porsche 911 Turbo, making it the most efficient sports car in its class.
The European 911 Turbo S will offer as standard the high technology features that are otherwise available as options on the 911 Turbo (US spec is unavailable at present). Thus, the Turbo S comes exclusively with the seven-speed PDK double-clutch transmission – with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifts – which conveys drive to the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive. Driving enjoyment and safety is optimized by the Dynamic Engine Mounts, as well as Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with a rear mechanical limited slip differential.
In conjunction with the Launch Control function of the Sport Chrono Package Turbo that is also fitted as standard, the Turbo S accelerates from a 0-62mph in 3.3 seconds and reaches 124mph in 10.8 seconds. Top speed is 196mph. Lightweight and fade-resistant Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) provide the same outstanding performance in terms of stopping power.
Further underlining the outstanding caliber of the first 911 Turbo S in five years, the level of standard equipment also includes Dynamic Cornering Lights, 19” RS Spyder wheels with centre lock nut, adaptive sports seats, cruise control, a CD/DVD changer and exclusive two-tone leather upholstery in Black/Creme or Black/Titanium Blue.
