Porsche is giving us a sneak peak of a new flagship model which will make its debut at the upcoming 2010 Geneva Motor Show. The 911 Turbo S, which obviously is an evolution of the magnificnet 2010 911 Turbo, comes with more power and therefore better performance and it will be offered in both coupe and cabrio forms. But since Porsche designers are the laziest in business, neither models get any styling upgrade!
The turbo is powered by the same six-cylinder twin -turbo boxer engine as the standard model but it generates 530 hp and a massive 700 nm of torque. So the already amazing performance of the Turbo becomes mind-boggling!
Thanks to Porsche’s seven-speed Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) (Porsche’s Double-Clutch Gearbox) conveying drive power to Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive, Dynamic Engine Mounts and Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV), and of course the Launch Control on the Sport Chrono Package, this car goes from zero to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and onwards to 315 km/h or 195 mph.
To assure maximum stopping power Porsche has fitted the car with their fade-free Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB). As for fuel consumption, the Turbo S averages 11.4 litres/100 kilometres (24.8 mpg) which is brilliant or a supercar like this.
The 91 Turbo S also comes standard with the most exclusive features including Dynamic Bending Lights, 19-inch wheels in RS Spyder design with central locking, a three-spoke sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles, adaptive sports seats, cruise control, a CD/DVD changer and exclusive twin-tone leather upholstery in Black/Crema or Black/Titanium Blue additionally underlines the outstanding class and calibre of this first Turbo S in five years.
Pricing for this model starts at 173,241 Euro for the Coupe and 184,546 Euro for the Cabriolet model. Sales begin from May 2010.
