Over the decades it’s lost none of its potency. The perfect expression of Porsche’s engineering philosophies, just one look and you understand its powerful intent. The 3.8-litre twin-turbo horizontally opposed engine at the rear, produces 402 kW (540 hp) and maximum torque of 710 Nm. With Launch Control, it accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 3.0 seconds and a top speed is 198 mph. Its big brother the 911 Turbo S generates a staggering 432 kW (580 hp) and manages to dip below the 3 second barrier to reach 62mph from standstill, on its way to a top speed over the magical 200mph.
Come rain, shine or low-grip road surfaces, PSM improves traction using the automatic brake differential (ABD) and anti-slip regulation (ASR). Together they create incredible stability and safety combined with exceptional agility.
On the 911 Turbo S models you’ll be brought to a satisfying stop with Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB). The cross-drilled ceramic brake discs have a diameter of 410 mm at the front and 390 mm at the rear – for even more formidable braking performance.
Powerful design throughout underlines the vehicle’s extraordinary dynamism. The interior is no less sporty than the exterior, due in part to the new GT sports steering wheel featuring electric height and reach adjustment, a MODE switch with SPORT Response button and two gearshift paddles made from lightweight alloy.
The 911 Turbo never gives in to being frivolous with every aspect of the interior focused on the driving experience. Each innovation has the effect of making the 911 Turbo very precise, focused and honed.
The same applies to the cabriolet version too, with its lightweight and exceptionally stable fabric hood with supporting elements made of magnesium. These make the hood very robust and lightweight too. And importantly, it opens or closes in around 13 seconds – up to a speed of 31 mph.
The technologically advanced 911 Turbo chassis has been engineered to enable smooth high-speed maneuverability, incredible stability, and corning agility.
Enhanced Porsche Traction Management (PTM) is an essential feature of all 911 all-wheel drive models. The electronically controlled and fully variable multi-plate clutch distributes drive force between the permanently driven rear axle and the front axle even faster and more precisely than ever before.
PTV Plus is also standard. The system actively enhances vehicle dynamics and stability and operates, in conjunction with an electronic rear differential lock, by varying the distribution of torque applied to the rear wheels.
