The engineers at Porsche have developed the 2011 911 Turbo S in response to customer demand for greater power, performance and driving dynamics.
An increase in horsepower over the 2011 911 Turbo of 30 hp boosts peak output to 530 hp (390 kW) and maximum torque is a most impressive 700 Newton-metres (516 lb-ft). Despite its significant increase in power and dynamic performance, the new 911 Turbo S returns 24.8 mpg Combined (11.4 l/ 100 km) and as such offers identical fuel consumption to the regular Porsche 911 Turbo
The 911 Turbo S offers as standard the high technology features that are otherwise available as options on the 911 Turbo. Thus, the Turbo S comes exclusively with the seven-speed Porsche
Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) double-clutch gearbox – with steering wheel-mounted paddle shift levers – which conveys drive power to Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive. Driving enjoyment and safety is optimised to an even higher standard courtesy of the Dynamic Engine Mounts, and Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) including a mechanical limited slip rear differential.
In conjunction with the Launch Control function of the Sport Chrono Package Turbo that is also fitted as standard, the 911 Turbo S accelerates from a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.3 seconds and reaches 124 mph (200 km/h) in 10.8 seconds. Top speed is 196 mph (315 km/h). Lightweight and fade-resistant Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) provides the same outstanding performance in terms of stopping power.
The 2011 Porsche 911 Turbo S goes on sale from May 2010 priced from £123,263 in Coupe bodystyle and from £130,791 as a Cabriolet. Fitted to every Turbo S is a Porsche Vehicle Tracking System (VTS), a sophisticated vehicle security package approved to Thatcham Category 5 standard. Further technical and specification details will be confirmed nearer the on-sale date.
