Ahead of their world debut at the North American International Auto Show in January 2016, the new Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S have been revealed and come with a sharper design, improved usability and of course, more power.
With great performance being at the centre of every 911, these two top of the food chain 911s certainly do not disappoint. The 3.8-litre twin turbocharged flat six engine in the 911 Turbo produces a heightened power output of 540 bhp. The 911 Turbo S now develops 580 bhp thanks two new turbochargers and larger compressors.
The engines now also have a ‘dynamic boost function’ which increases engine responsiveness. All this means 0-62mph is dealt with in 2.9 seconds in the 911 Turbo S coupé and now easily breaks through the illusive 200mph barrier with it’s top speed maxing out at 205mph. The standard 911 Turbo won’t be left too far behind either, only taking 3.0 seconds to hit 0-62mph from a standstill and it’s top speed now up from 195mph, to 198mph. Despite this hugely impressive performance, Porsche claim the coupé to return 31mpg and the convertibles at 30.4 mpg.
Standard equipment includes a GT Sport steering wheel, which allows the driver to choose between four driving modes – Normal, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual. Both cars are fitted with Porsche’s Active Suspension Management and the Turbo S benefits from ceramic brakes and Dynamic Chassis Control.
Both cars also come with many of the styling tweaks seen on the latest in the Carrera range, including the new door handles, new rear lights and reshaped front. Both cars also come with 20-inch alloy wheels. Inside, both cars come with a touchscreen sat-nav as part of the Porsche Communication Management system.
Prices start at £126,925 for the standard 911 Turbo and peak at £154,614 for the Turbo S Cabriolet. All models are available to buy now.
