The new top-of-the-line 911 is on the market as a coupe and convertible. Both body styles were powered by a new 3.8-litre boxer engine with two VTG turbochargers that delivers 478 kW (650 hp), 51 kW (70 hp) more than its predecessor. The maximum torque is now 800 Nm (an increase of 50 Nm). The Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) 8-speed transmission, specially developed for the Turbo, reduces the 0-100 km/h acceleration time to 2.7 seconds (0.2 seconds faster than its predecessor). Top speed remained unchanged, still at 330 km/h.
New Porsche 911 Turbo S
In line with the increased driving dynamics, the external dimensions of the 911 Turbo S have been significantly increased: the vehicle body above the front axle is 45 mm wider (1840 mm) and the overall width above the rear axle is 1900 mm (20 mm increase). The modified track width, improved aerodynamics and new mixed tires make it agile and sporty. At the front, the track has increased by 42 mm, and at the rear by 10 mm. Adaptive aerodynamics now includes movable, controllable cooling air flaps at the front, while a larger rear wing is designed for even more downforce. For the first time, the 911 Turbo S transfers its power to the road with two different tire sizes: 20-inch tires in the unique 255/35 size up front and 21-inch 315/30 tires in the rear. . New equipment options underline the sportier image of the all-wheel drive 911. These include the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) sports suspension lowered by 10 mm and the sports exhaust system with adjustable flaps for a distinctive sound.
All-new 911 Turbo S engine
The all-new 911 Turbo S engine is based on the 911 Carrera generation. It received a completely redesigned charge air cooling system, new, larger, symmetrically configured VTG turbochargers with electrically adjustable wastegate flaps, and an injection system with piezoelectric injectors that greatly improved performance in terms of throttle response, power, torque, emissions, and emissions. opportunity to turn around.
The new 6-cylinder engine also has a new intake system. In this case, the old cooling routes for process air and charge air have been reversed, with some of the process air now flowing through the characteristic Turbo intakes on the rear sides. In front of the air filters, now located in the rear fenders, there are two more air intakes - through the trunk grille. This means that the new 911 Turbo S has four air intakes with a larger cross-section and less aerodynamic drag, which contributes to increased engine efficiency. Two symmetrical Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG) turbochargers and larger sizes replace the previous components, and the compressor and turbine rotors now rotate in opposite directions. The diameter of the turbine rotors has increased by 5 mm to 55 mm, and that of the compressors by 3 mm to 61 mm. Wastegate dampers are electrically controlled by stepper motors.
The harmonious design of the 911 Turbo S
The harmonious design of the 911 Turbo S, which perfectly combines driving pleasure, dynamics and sportiness, perfectly meets the requirements of both everyday use and the demands prevailing on the race track. The leap made by the new generation of models in terms of performance is especially noticeable when accelerating from 0 to 200 km / h: a result of 8.9 seconds is a full second better than its predecessor. With the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive upgrade, the transfer case can deliver significantly more torque – up to 500 Nm of torque can be sent to the front wheels. The standard new-generation PASM suspension is also even more sporty. Faster and more precisely controlled shock absorbers provide significant advantages in terms of driving dynamics - in terms of roll stability, traction, cornering behavior and cornering speed.
The new front bumper with wider air intakes has a distinctive Turbo look, with dual light modules, as well as standard LED matrix headlights with dark inserts. A redesigned pneumatically extendable front spoiler and larger rear wing increase downforce by 15 %. Muscular rear fenders with integrated air intakes underline the slenderness of the 911 Turbo S. The new look at the rear is complemented by the typical Turbo rectangular tailpipes in high-gloss black.
Interior of the 911 Turbo S
The interior combines high-quality finishes with a sporty aura. The standard equipment list includes full leather and carbon fiber trim paired with light silver accents. The 18-way power sport seats feature stitching inspired by the first generation 911 Turbo (model 930). High-quality graphics and logos on the instrument cluster complete the features of the 911 Turbo S. The central PCM screen is now 10.9 inches diagonal, and the new layout makes it quick and intuitive to use. Also available as standard are a GT sports steering wheel, a Sport Chrono package with newly integrated Porsche Track Precision app, and a BOSE® surround sound system.
The 911 Turbo S Coupe can now be ordered from Porsche Centres. The coupe version will be available for $1,077,000. (4 c.u. = 1 USD). The cost of the 911 Turbo S Cabriolet is $1,143,000. (4 c.u. = 1 USD).
