What Distinguishes New Porsche 911 Turbo S from its Predecessor?

Yesterday the new-generation Porsche 911 Turbo S made its world debut. The newcomer offers unprecedented power, driving dynamics and comfort.

The 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S will be available both as Coupé and Cabriolet. Compared with the predecessor, the new model is 45 mm wider above the front axle and 20 mm above the rear axle. The track becomes wider too, and the rear wing is enlarged to achieve 15% more downforce.

Exterior

Porsche redesigns the front and rear ends adding Turbo-specific details: dual front light modules, standard LED matrix headlights with dark inserts, a pneumatically extendable front spoiler, high-gloss Black rectangular tailpipes.

For the first time Porsche uses mixed tires in two different sizes – 20-inch at the front and 20-inch at the rear – in the new Turbo S. The sports exhaust system and the PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) sports chassis lowered by 10 mm add sportiness.

Interior

The upscale and sporty interior offers leather and carbon trim in combination with Light Silver accents, high-quality graphic elements and logos. A new two-tone interior will be available as an option.

There are 18-way adjustable sports seats, a 10.9-inch center screen of the PCM (Porsche Communication Management) system, a GT sports steering wheel and the Sport Chrono package including BOSE Surround Sound system.

Performance

The 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S receives a completely new 3.8-liter boxer twin-turbo engine delivering 478 kW (650 hp) – 51 kW (70 hp) more power than before. The enhanced Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive helps distribute significantly more torque. The max torque is 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) now (50 Nm / 37 lb-ft increase).

The Turbo-specific 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) gearbox cuts the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint to 2.7 seconds (0.2 seconds quicker). The new 911 Turbo S is one full second faster than its predecessor in the sprint from 0 to 200 km/h (0-124 mph): 8.9 seconds. The top speed remains unchanged: 330 km/h (205 mph).

WLTP-rated combined fuel consumption figures are 11.1 l/100 km (21.2 mpg) in the coupe and 11.3 l/100 km (20.8 mpg) in the cabrio; CO2 emissions are 254 g/km and 257 g/km, respectively.

Cost

The 911 Turbo S Coupé will be available in Germany at a price of €216,396 (country-specific equipment and VAT inclusive). The 911 Turbo S Cabriolet will cost from €229,962.
