New Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S. Unlike old times, Porsche decided to reveal the Turbo S model at the same time with the Turbo. Usually, Porsche reveals the 911 Turbo S by the end of the product life cycle to give some boost to sales figures. However, this time Porsche decided to revealed them together and sees how it goes.
First of all, new Porsche 911 Turbo is super sexy! Probably the looking Turbo ever. And also introduces new technologies. New 911 Turbo and Turbo S are powered by a 3.8-lt petrol engine; Turbo receives 520 HP and Turbo S receives 560 HP. And both models are offered with a 7-speed PDK double clutch automatic gearbox. As usual, both Turbo models are all-wheel drive. Porsche offers an electro hydraulic system all-wheel drive system to improve response and traction.
Now 911 Turbos are available with full LED headlights, unlike other cars you won’t have the old technology xenon or halogen lights! This is really good decision and presents the Porsche’s commitment to high technology.
Another good feature is the rear wheel steering. Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S offer rear wheel steering to improve handling, cornering and better manoeuvre in slow speed. Up to 50 km/h, the rear wheel steers to opposite direction and speeds above 80 km/h, the rear wheel steers to parallel direction. But I have no idea what rear wheel does between 50 km/h and 80 km/h.
Now 911 Turbo and Turbo S offer active aero dynamic similar to an airplane. This is why you should buy a Turbo! It is called Porsche Active Aerodynamic (PAA), the front spoiler retractable to three different stages based on the speed of the car and the deployable rear spoiler can adjust itself into three different stages as well. Watch the footage and you will see how cool it is!
Porsche 911 Turbo Sport Chrono Package only needs 3.2 seconds to reach 100 km/h and Turbo S only needs 3.1 seconds to reach 100 km/h with the top speed of 318 km/h.
Go buy a Turbo S, the price is gap around €30,000. But if you can afford to buy a Turbo, you can easily afford to Turbo S!
