Frankfurt Motor Show LIVE: Porsche 911 Turbo S image

Although it was revealed some months ago, Porsche just now has publicly unveiled the fiery Turbo S variant of its 911 iconic model.

Alongside its “less” potent Turbo brother, the Turbo S variant employs a six-cylinder, 3.8-liter direct-injection turbocharged engine delivering 520 hp (383 kW) in the 911 Turbo and 560 hp (412 kW) in the 911 Turbo S. All this tremendous power goes to all four wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch PDK with auto stop/start function – it even has better fuel economy than the outgoing model, by 16% – now down to 9.7 l/100 km (24.2 mpg US or 29.1 mpg UK).

The 911 Turbo S with Sport Chrono Package will do 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.1 seconds, on its way to the top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h). Just like the 911 GT3, the Turbo variants have four-wheel steering which help the cars lap Nürburgring in less than 7 minutes 30 seconds with standard production tires fitted. And both Turbo and Turbo S models feature a retractable three-stage rear spoiler and a deployable rear wing with three positions.

The Turbo S gains over the Trubo model full LED headlights with four-point daytime running lights and camera-based main beam control and also 20-inch alloy wheels with hub wheel locks.
