The New Porsche 911 Turbo S Is 641-Horsepower Fast

The all-new Porsche 911 Turbo S is the ultimate in power, speed and comfort.

  • New twin-turbo 3.8-litre boxer engine also delivers 590 lb.-ft. of torque.
  • Pricing starts at $231,700 for the coupe and $246,300 for the cabriolet.
  • Porsche wants us to believe that the 0-100 km/h sprint will require 2.7-seconds.

The current-generation Porsche 911, the 992, hit the road roughly a year ago and already it’s been touted as of the best driving 911s ever. Various iterations of the legendary sport car will be making their way to market and this round belongs to the most powerful of them all, the 911 Turbo S.

Output numbers maybe huge be so is the new 911 Turbo S, width-wise at least. The new car is 45mm wider up front and 20mm wider in the rear. The significantly wider track and revised bodywork covers 20-inch wheels and tires up front with huge 315/30 21-inch tires and wheel in the rear. Physically, and thanks to the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), the Turbo S is lowered by 10mm.

The massive power comes from the new twin-turbo 3.8-litre boxer 6-cylinder engine produces 641-horsepower and 590 lb.-ft. of torque. These numbers are, in part, the result of two new and larger symmetrical turbochargers with variable turbine geometry (VTG), and represent an increase of 61 and 36 respectively compared to the last 991 Turbo S. The power is routed to all four wheels via Turbo-specific eight- speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) which, all told, sends to the Turbo S to 100 km/h from a standstill in 2,7 seconds, or 0.2 seconds faster than previously. This is laughable.

Laughable because everyone knows that the Porsche is always hyper-conservative with its performance numbers. The “old” Turbo S managed the supposed 992 numbers which means the new Turbo S is likely a 2.5-second car. Either way, the sports exhaust system with adjustable flaps will guarantee a distinctively Porsche sound.
