The new range-topping Porsche 911 is being launched as a Coupe and Cabriolet.
Both are powered by a new 3.8-litre boxer engine with two variable-geometry turbochargers that delivers 641bhp, 69bhp more than its predecessor. Maximum torque is now 800Nm (an increase of 50Nm).
The Turbo-exclusive 8-speed Porsche dual-clutch transmission cuts the zero to 100km/h sprint to 2.7 seconds, while top speed is unchanged at 330km/h.
The completely new engine of the Porsche 911 Turbo S is based on the 911 Carrera engine.
It features a completely redesigned charge air cooling system, new, larger variable-geometry turbochargers in a symmetrical layout with electrically adjustable wastegate flaps, as well as piezo injectors.
These have significantly improved the vehicle’s characteristics with regard to responsiveness, power, torque, and emissions.
The diameter of the turbine wheels has been increased by five millimetres to 55mm, while the compressor wheel is now three millimetres larger, at 61mm.
Thanks to the enhanced Porsche Traction Management all-wheel-drive, the transfer case can now distribute up to 500Nm of torque to the front wheels.
The new generation of the standard Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) chassis is also even sportier.
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 dimensions of the Porsche 911 Turbo S have been increased significantly, in line with the enhanced driving dynamics.
The body is now 45mm wider above the front axle, and the overall width is 1900mm above the rear axle. Meanwhile, the track is now 42mm wider at the front axle and 10mm wider at the rear axle.
The new car sports adaptive aerodynamics with active cooling air flaps at the front, while the larger rear wing has been designed for even more downforce.
For the first time, the Porsche 911 Turbo S transfers its power to the road with mixed tyres in two different sizes. It has 20-inch tyres with 255/35 dimensions at the front and 21-inch 315/30 tyres at the rear.
The car can now be optioned with the PASM sports chassis that lowers the body by 10mm. An optional sports exhaust system with adjustable flaps guarantees a distinctive sound.
The interior has a high-quality and sporty finish. The standard equipment list includes a full leather interior and carbon trim in combination with Light Silver accents.
A newly designed two-tone interior will be available by Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur as an option. This is characterised by a coordinated interplay of colours, materials and individual enhancements.
The 18-way adjustable sports seats feature stitching that pays homage to the first 911 Turbo. The centre screen of the Porsche Communication Management system is now 10.9 inches.
Other features of the car include a GT sports steering wheel, the Sport Chrono package with newly integrated Porsche Track Precision app and a BOSE Surround Sound system.
