Porsche 911 Turbo Coupé, Cabriolet: Most powerful and fastest Car
PORSCHE has rolled out the most powerful, fastest and luxurious 911 coupe and cabriolet in the 45 years life of the legendary sports car.
Thanks to their 580 PS (427 kW) engines (+40 PS/+30 kW), both model variants dip under the three second 0-100 km/h mark with a time of 2.8 seconds (-0.2 seconds). Now without an overboost time limit, 750 newton metres of torque (+40 Nm) make quick sprints even more spontaneous and effortless. Acceleration, power output and torque of the new 911 Turbo all match those of the previous generation 911 Turbo S. Power transmission is performed by an eight-speed PDK gearbox with a Turbo-specific set-up, while its top speed remains unchanged at 320 km/h.
With an increased range of options, such as the Sports and Lightweight Design packages, sports chassis and sports exhaust system, customers are able to adapt their vehicle to their individual tastes even more. The new 911 Turbo’s 3,745 cm3 six-cylinder boxer engine boasts an increased output of 580 PS and now features symmetrical VTG turbochargers with electrically controlled bypass valves.
In conjunction with its redesigned charge air cooling system and the use of piezo injectors, this improves responsiveness, performance, torque characteristics and its ability to rev freely. The chassis and body have become wider. The front axle now steers even more precisely thanks to an additional 42 millimetres of front track width and new 20-inch 255/35 tyres. The active all-wheel control Porsche Traction Management (PTM) is now able to transfer even more power to the front wheels, while traction at the actively steered rear axle is increased by a 10 mm-wider track as well as 315/30 tyres on 21-inch wheels. The revamped braking system is even more powerful and can be recognised by its red fixed callipers that are fitted as standard. The grey cast iron brake discs at the front now measure 408 mm in diameter (+28 mm) and are 36 mm thick (+2 mm). The rear axle features 30 mm-thick brake discs with a diameter of 380 mm.
For the first time, customers can opt for a sports exhaust system and choose between two different chassis variants. While the standard Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) chassis offers a greater spread between sportiness and comfort, the significantly firmer, electrically controlled 10 mm-lower sports suspension further enhances the agility of the new 911 Turbo. Its set-up is aimed at enhancing the car’s dynamics and provides even more stability during high-speed intervals. The optional hydraulic active anti-roll stabilisation (Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control known as PDCC) and the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake system with ten-piston fixed callipers at the front refine the new model’s driving dynamics yet further.
The design of the 911 Turbo has become even more muscular. The body has been widened by 45 mm to 1,840 mm at the front wheels to accommodate the new chassis, while the new bonnet’s striking swage line underlines the car’s sporty character. LED headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus illuminate the road as standard. At the rear axle, the body is now exactly 1.90 metres wide (+20 mm). Other distinguishing features of the new 911 Turbo are its enhanced adaptive aerodynamics, which feature electronically controlled cooling air flaps at the front, its larger active front spoiler and significantly larger variable rear spoiler. The characteristic air intakes on the rear side panels now draw in process air rather than the cooling air they did before. The charge air coolers are now positioned directly in the air flow under the rear lid. The continuous light bar with its LED tail lights, as well as the new louvred rear lid grille with silver trim strips, round off the design of the rear of the car.
