“The Porsche 911 Turbo S is our new flagship among the internal combustion engine vehicles,” says Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG. “When it comes to performance, efficiency and timeless design, we are again setting new standards. As a very sporty vehicle that carries the Porsche motor sports gene, the 911 Turbo S subscribes fully to the image dimension of our product strategy.” Deeply emotive petrol engines such as the one in the 911 Turbo S will play a key role in the future of Porsche, alongside high-performance plug-in hybrids and fully electric vehicles. The sports car manufacturer recently brought the Taycan, its first electric sports car, to market.
The Turbo is a milestone in the history of Porsche and the 911 range. In 1974, Porsche unveiled the first standard 911 Turbo with a 260 PS three-litre engine and a distinctive rear spoiler. “With its unique blend of luxury and performance, the Turbo has become synonymous with the Porsche brand – so much so that we have named our sportiest Taycan versions the Turbo”, explains Michael Steiner, Member of the Executive Board for Research and Development at Porsche. “The new 911 Turbo S ties in with this as the innovative flagship of the 911 range.”
The most important new features at a glance:
The new 911 Turbo S delivers even more driving pleasure through increased power combined with modified track widths and mixed sized tyres. New features include a PASM sports chassis, while the body has been lowered by 10 mm and a Turbo-specific sports exhaust system has been fitted. Both equipment options are being offered on the top 911 model for the first time, for even greater dynamism. As standard, the 911 Turbo S has an eight-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission and reinforced transfer box. Porsche Adaptive Aerodynamics (PAA) now comes with controlled cooling air flaps at the front, an extended control strategy as well as a larger but lighter rear wing for even more downforce.
The 718 Boxster GTS 4.0 and 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 combine the superior power delivery of the four-litre naturally aspirated engine from Porsche with a dynamic chassis and sports-focused equipment. In addition to impressive acceleration, the GTS models also feature high lateral abilities. As standard, both 718 models feature PASM sports suspension, which lowers the car by 20 mm to ensure exceptionally agile driving characteristics. Specific design features also help to emphasise the visually sporty character of both new GTS models.
With its new V6 biturbo engine, the Macan GTS is entering its second generation. Characteristic of a GTS, its PASM chassis, with 20-inch RS Spyder wheels, has been specifically designed for precise driving dynamics. For this reason, the compact SUV is up to 15 mm lower than its predecessor. Visually, the Macan GTS also underlines its special status as the sportiest model with features that include the standard Sport Design package with new front and rear apron, lending the car a distinctive appearance.
