Following the market launch of the 911 Turbo S, the next generation Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe and Cabriolet have now been introduced.
MORE POWER FOR THE NEW 911 TURBO
Both variants clock 0-100km/h in just 2.8 seconds, thanks to their flat-6 engines producing 573bhp, or 40bhp more than their predecessors. Meanwhile, the 750Nm of torque, now without an overboost time limit, makes quick sprints even more spontaneous and effortless.
Transmission duties are performed by an 8-speed PDK (dual-clutch) gearbox with a Turbo-specific set-up. The top speed remains unchanged at 320km/h.
Porsche is also making options such as the Sports and Lightweight Design packages, sports chassis and sports exhaust system available for the 911 Turbo for the first time.
The new 3.7-litre engine now features symmetrical VTG turbochargers with electrically controlled bypass valves. With a redesigned charge air cooling system and piezo injectors, responsiveness, performance, torque characteristics and free-revving abilities are improved.
The all-new Porsche 911 Turbo has a 42mm wider front track and new 20-inch 255/35 tyres.
The new change allows the all-wheel control Porsche Traction Management to transfer even more power to the front wheels. Traction is also enhanced at the actively steered rear axle, thanks to the 10mm-wider track and 315/30 tyres on 21-inch wheels.
The grey cast iron brake discs at the front now measure 408mm in diameter (28mm wider than before) and are 36mm thick (two millimetres more). The rear axle features 30 mm-thick brake discs with a diameter of 380 mm. Red fixed callipers are now standard.
NEW PERSONALISATION OPTIONS
Customers of the new Porsche 911 Turbo also now get the option to spec their car with sports suspension, which lowers the Porsche 911 Turbo by 10mm and significantly firms the dampers for improved dynamics.
Those looking to further sharpen their Porsche 911 Turbo can specify the optional Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control and the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake system, which features front discs with 10-piston fixed callipers.
The Lightweight Design package for the 911 Turbo Coupe reduces vehicle weight by 30kg. This is made possible by use of lightweight full-bucket front seats, the omission of the rear seats and less insulation. The latter lets drivers enjoy the sound of the engine even more directly.
Meanwhile, the Sports package features the 911 Turbo Sport Design package, additional features in Black and in Carbon, plus Exclusive Design tail-lights.
The centre screen of the Porsche Communication Management is now 10.9-inches as seen in the 911 Carrera.
The interior equipment list includes electrically controlled 14-way sports seats, the Sport Chrono package, a GT sports steering wheel with shift paddles, multi-function and mode switches, and a BOSE Surround Sound System.
Numerous options are available for further personalisation, including Porsche InnoDrive with adaptive cruise control, Lane Keeping Assist with road sign recognition, Night Vision Assist, Surround View, and a Burmester High-End Surround Sound System.
New electronically controlled cooling air flaps at the front, LED headlights with PDLS Plus, a larger active front spoiler and a significantly larger variable rear spoiler round off the exterior changes to the new Porsche 911 Turbo.
