Porsche Keep Raising The Bar On The 911 Turbo S

The flagship 911 now produces a whopping 477kW.

How do you improve on a Porsche 911? Create a new 911 Turbo S, of course. On Tuesday, the German automaker did just that, unveiling a new 2021 model the brand says will be the fastest and most powerful version yet.

As the flagship 911, the 992-generation Turbo S, which will be available as a coupé and cabriolet, has some lofty standards to live up to. But judging by the specs Porsche revealed during the car’s announcement, it should have little trouble meeting them.

The feature most likely to catch people’s attention? The car’s 477kW, which come courtesy of its 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged flat-six engine. Based on the 911 Carrera’s engine, it has bigger variable turbine geometry turbochargers and a reworked air intake system, which allow it to produce all those horses plus an equally impressive 800Nm of torque.

But the Turbo S isn’t just powerful; it’s also really fast. Thanks to an all-wheel-drive system, Porsche promises that the coupé will be able to go from 0-to-100 km/h in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it 2.6 seconds, while the cabriolet version completes the task in just a tenth of a second longer.

While the 2021 model doesn’t look remarkably different from the car it’s replacing, Porsche has given the exterior a little more real estate to work with. This edition has slightly wider body (1.8-inches in the front, 0.78 in the back), large intakes on the body panels to better channel air and a larger rear wing that will help produce 15-per cent more downforce. A lower Active Suspension Management sport suspension and louder sport exhaust are also available as options.

Of course, this kind of speed and power come at a cost. When the new Turbo S arrives on these shores later this year, the coupé version will sport a starting price of $473,900 while the cabriolet version will go for $494,900.
