The turbo returns...

03.05.2013

PORSCHE is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its 911 Turbo models by introducing the highly anticipated Turbo variant of the latest 911.

The new 911 Turbo is available in a standard format, as well as in manic S guise. Both models feature an all-new intelligent all-wheel-drive system as standard.

The turbocharged 3.8-litre flat-six engine produces 383kW in the 911 Turbo and 412kW in the Turbo S. As a consequence, the 911 Turbo S shortens the benchmark lap time around the Nürburgring-Nordschleife to well under 7.5 minutes on standard production tyres.

Power is transferred to the drivetrain via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK), which enables an auto start/stop function with engine shut-off that now activates earlier (when coasting to a halt) as well as the proven coasting function. 
The 911 Turbo - with the optional Sport Chrono Package Plus - accelerates from zero to 100km/h in 3.2 seconds, while the Turbo S handles the same in just 3.1 seconds. The car’s top speed is 315km/h.

The Turbo S offers an exclusive interior in a Black/Carrera Red colour combination and Sport Seats Plus with 18-way adjustment and position memory. In addition, the seat backrest shells are leather upholstered with double-cap seams and various elements in Carbon Look. As with the prior model, a Bose Surround Sound audio system is standard.
