Mississauga, Ontario – Porsche will unveil its top-of-range 911, the new 911 Turbo S, at the Geneva Motor Show. The new model comes standard with a number of high-tech components that are only available as options on the regular 911 Turbo.
The new Turbo S uses a six-cylinder boxer engine with two exhaust gas turbochargers with variable turbine geometry. With higher boost pressure than the 911 Turbo, power increases by 30 horsepower to 350, while maximum torque increases to 516 lb-ft. Despite the increase in power, tests in the European cycle showed it does not consume any more fuel than the regular 911 Turbo.
The new model comes exclusively with a seven-speed Porsche PDK double-clutch gearbox and Porsche Traction Management all-wheel drive. Standard also are dynamic engine mounts and Porsche Torque Vectoring, including a mechanical differential lock on the rear axle. The 911 Turbo S accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and reaches 200 km/h in 10.8 seconds, with a top track speed of 315 km/h.
Canadian pricing will be announced closer to the vehicle’s market launch.
