March 3, 2020 marked the launch of Porsche’s new 911 Turbo S, in Coupé and Cabriolet versions. The new generation sports car has enhanced power, driving dynamics, and comfort.
The new engine of the 911 Turbo S is based on the 911 Carrera engine generation. It provides a completely redesigned charge air cooling system and new, larger variable turbine geometry (VTG) turbochargers in a symmetrical layout with electrically adjustable wastegate flaps. This new 3.8-litre boxer engine is the beating heart of the car and delivers a horsepower of 70 hp more than its predecessor. The maximum torque now reaches 800 Nm. The Turbo-specific eight-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) allows it to achieve a speed from zero to 100 kms per hour in 2.7 seconds, while the top speed remains unchanged at 330 kms per hour.
The latest model’s body is 45 mm wider above the front axle at a total width of 1,840 mm and 20 mm wider above the rear axle, bringing the overall width here to 1,900 mm. Modified track widths, further developed aerodynamics, and the new mixed-size tyres contribute to its agility and sportiness. New equipment options include the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) sports chassis that has been lowered by 10 mm and the sports exhaust system with adjustable flaps that guarantees a distinctive sound. As part of the new standard PASM chassis, faster and more precisely controlled dampers provide significant advantages to the driving dynamics with respect to roll stability, road holding, steering behaviour and cornering speeds.
The front end of the vehicle has wider air intakes and a characteristic Turbo-look that includes dual front light modules as well as standard LED matrix headlights with dark inserts. The sleek body is emphasised by its muscular rear wing sections with integrated air intakes. This new look of the rear is completed by rectangular tailpipes in high-gloss black. Furthermore, a full leather interior and carbon trim combined with light silver accents are included in the standard equipment list which render the car’s interior a high-quality and sporty finish. The 18-way adjustable sports seats feature stitching that pays homage to the first 911 Turbo (type 930). Other standard features include the GT sports steering wheel, the Sport Chrono package with the newly integrated Porsche Track Precision app and a surround sound system by Bose.
The 911 Turbo S Coupé and Cabriolet are available for order now while the first units of it will arrive in the region by May 2020.
