New 911 Turbo S is Absolutely No Fucks Given Fast
The new generation 911 Turbo S has finally been revealed and it is more or less an even faster version of the previous generation. In our opinion, the somewhat standard 911 4S is quick enough. When we tested the 911 4S we felt it was all the Porsche you could ever want. Not the most powerful, but the way it has been engineered means less is more in the Porsche performance philosophy. Now the latest generation 911 Turbo S is here and it’s very powerful, 640bhp powerful.
The 3.8-litre flat-six engine is uprated to provide 640bhp and 590 lb-ft of torque, that’s 800nm in old money. A modest increase over the 991 Turbo S. When Porsche says the new 911 Turbo S is the powerful ever made you better still believe the hype. That means the new 911 Turbo is fast, 0-62mph in 2.6 seconds fast, with a top speed of 205mph fast.
The new 992 Turbo S rides on 21-inch-alloys and has all-wheel drive as standard. Clever algorithms will send more power to the rear whenever it is required or demanded. The adaptive damper suspension system now reacts quicker and carbon-ceramic brakes will provide prodigious stopping power for sure.
Inside you will get a fully loaded equipment list, but you don’t buy such a car for the Bose sound system or Appple CarPlay. You buy a 911 Turbo S because it is the pinnacle of performance engineering. But we do like the addition of the rear-fixed-wing. Gotta nail the aero.
The 911 Turbo S will also include Porsche Active Suspension (PASM), this will lower the car by 0.5-inch. And you will also get a new sports exhaust for a blipper-sounding tailpipe. Pricing has yet to be revealed, expect the new Turbo S to cost from £170,000 GBP, the cabriolet variant from around £200,000 GBP.
