Nine Highlights of the Eleven: the new 911 Turbo S

The new Porsche 911 Turbo S has arrived. And with its 650 bhp and the widest appearance a 911 has ever had, it leaves quite a strong impression. But the latest version of the 992 series offers even more - we show the highlights of the high-performance sports car.

S is for sporty: 911 flagship with 70 hp more power

The currently most powerful 911 engine with two VTG superchargers develops 478 kW (650 PS). The torque increases by 50 to 800 Newton metres compared with the previous generation.

Short attention span? No problem.

The sprint from zero to one hundred is shortened to 2.7 seconds (minus 0.2 seconds) with the eight-speed PDK tuned to the 911 Turbo S, while the top speed remains unchanged at 330 km/h. From a standing start to 200 km/h, the new 911 Turbo S even takes a full second out of its predecessor with 8.9 seconds.

Want some more? Here you go.

Fenders that are 45 millimetres wider at the front and the 20 millimetres wider rear make the new 911 Turbo S the widest production 911 to date.

The different crossover:

Tyres with a larger diameter on the rear axle (21 inches) optimise traction and lateral dynamics. Porsche uses 20-inch wheels at the front and, for the first time, a tyre dimension (255/35) that is unique to the 911 Turbo S.

Oh stop it, you.

First Porsche 911 with ten-piston fixed calipers on the standard front ceramic brake discs.

Deep talks:

For the first time, a PASM sports suspension with ten millimetre lowering can be ordered for the 911 Turbo models. The 911 flagship is even sportier with the newly developed sports exhaust system, which provides a sporty, distinctive sound.

Not just hot air

Adaptive aerodynamics (PAA) now with controlled cooling air flaps at the front, an extended control strategy and a larger but lighter rear wing for even more downforce. The PAA also acts as an airbrake in the event of an emergency stop at high speed.

Less is more:

For the first time, the 911 Turbo S Coupé is available with the newly developed lightweight construction and noise protection glazing with over four kilograms less weight.

Sits like a glove:

The leather package comes with Turbo's own stitching as standard. The equipment includes 18-way sports seats, the GT sports steering wheel, the Sport Chrono Package and the BOSE® surround sound system.
