New 992 Porsche 911 Turbo S More Powerful Than Ever

The upcoming Porsche 911 Turbo S will mark the peak of the 992’s power. It’s impressive.

When it comes to the Porsche 911, one trims stands head and shoulders above the others. Actually, it’s more like bully’s its way to the top. There are 911s that will corner faster and flatter, there are 911s that make more noises, have more pedals but fewer gears, but none of them put out bigger numbers. The Porsche 911 Turbo S is boss.

The lads at Car and Driver were given a unique opportunity to sample the Turbo S before everyone and their words are exactly the ones we wanted to read. The previous 991.2 Porsche 911 Turbo S produced “only” 580-horsepower and 553 lb.-ft. of torque. This lowly Turbo S reached 60 mph in 2.6 seconds. Look, you had to be patient with the car…

Now! Now, the new 992 Porsche 911 Turbo S will have serious power! No, but seriously, the twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six is upgraded with iron cylinder liners, cast-iron exhaust manifolds, new fuel injectors, bigger turbos, which has led to the need for more cooling and the relocation of the intercoolers.

The bottom line is 641-horsepower and 590 lb.-ft. of torque. Shared 0-60 time is of 2.5 seconds but C&D, as well as we, think this number is mildly conservative even though the new 992 Turbo S is 110 lb heavier. As well, the output number is unofficial but again, as C&D says, 650 metric horsepower is a nice round and impressive number. Helping achieve the acceleration figures are the standard AWD system and 8-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission.
