Automobile magazine notes that "the new 911-chassis edition has more breadth than ever". The 991 edition is full of power and personality: the 3.8 litre engine is roaring to be noticed when the car is on the road. The direct petrol injection engine is a twin-turbo engine made with variable turbine geometry (VTG). The VTG technology means that gas flows onto the turbines of the engines through electronically adjustable vanes. This makes the engine more efficient to drive. The engine of this 911 model also includes VarioCam technology. This unique technology adjusts the camshaft of the engine and it also controls the valve lifts. This creates more room for acceleration for the driver. Managing heat in a car is something that all drivers will agree is critical. Porsche installed a thermal management system in order to monitor the temperature of the engine. This is done through an innovative way of managing the flow of heat in the engine.
Torque bubbles at 750 Nm while the power of the car sits high at 560. Porsche is known for its commitment to creating high performance cars as pieces of art. When you look at the performance ability, you will see how artistic the speed is. The Porsche can go from 0 - 60 mph in 2.9 seconds while the top speed hovers at 197 mph.
Safety is a core feature of the performance of this Porsche powerhouse. There is a Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) that works with a 6-piston aluminium monobloc. It is through this ceramic composite that the brake calipers can do their work. There is also an electric parking brake that can be operated by the driver. It's through this focus on safety that makes the Porsche 911 Turbo a fantastic option for car enthusiasts.
Our 911 Turbo S is powered by the 7-speed PDK automatic transmission. The PDK transmission is seamless as it moves between gears to facilitate smart driving dynamics. These dynamics include Active Aerodynamics System and the Dynamic Chassis Control, two technology features that Porsche have moulded. The Dynamic Chassis Control allows the car to control its strength on the road. The Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+) is said to make driving less work for the driver by powering the lights. The beauty of the driving dynamics is underlined with Porsche Traction Management (PTM). PTM works in tandem with the Porsche Stability Management (PSM) to give the car the right amount of traction for all types of driving conditions.
GTSpirit.com said "we praise the ability to change from a comfortable and sophisticated daily driver to a supercar killer on track at the touch of a button." It's in this dual identity that this Porsche soars from success to more success. Unleash pure exhilaration from stop/start in this Turbo S supercar.
The cabin of the Turbo S is described by Porsche as 'never frivolous, always direct'. We couldn't agree more: the cockpit is accented with a 3-spoke wheel that takes centre stage in this incredible cabin. The steering wheel allows drivers to choose Sport, Sport Plus and Launch control. This gives drivers more control over how the car moves judging by what mode is chosen. The leather seats and leather side trims are soft while the Carrera Red interior contrasts with the texture of the leather. Alcantara is lined on the roof which adds a practical touch to an already solid interior.
The technology of the interior is powered by Porsche Communication Management (PCM). Drivers can connect their MP3 players and phones to the media system to listen to music. Digital radio is also available and so is a Burmester sound system as an option. There is also a memory function for the steering wheel and driver's seat setting. There are also split-folding rear seats which add to the sheer comfort level of the car. The headrests that are integrated in the front seats mean that the driver and passenger can sink into the soft interior. The adaptive sport seats have 18-way side bolsters that can be adjusted.
When passengers want to read, everything in the cabin is illuminated thanks to LED reading lights that can be turned on. There is also vanity mirror lighting and exit courtesy lighting. From the interior mirrors with automatic dimming to the availability of ParkAssist in the front and rear, it's clear that the cabin is a safe haven for everyone in it.
The white metallic exterior of the car shows the stealth and power of the exterior. The lightweight body comes in aluminium and a steel composite. This composite makes the platform of the exterior strong enough to have plenty of accents such as a front spoiler embossed with a 'turbo S' on it. The industrial gloss is shown through the 2 twin tailpipes done in Turbo design that is made from chrome stainless steel.
The body comes in a 2+2 seater coupe that includes underbody panelling for extra support. The front apron features integrated parking sensors and airblades to keep the car cool. Air cooling is a popular element of the body: there are air openings in the rear that help to promote further air cooling. GTSpirit.com said "the car shows its second performance-oriented look" because the front spoiler is extended.
The electric folding exterior mirrors and the SportDesign exterior mirror point to how open the body of the car is. The visual beauty of the 911 is accentuated by the Bi-Xenon Adaptive headlights. Drivers will get that classic Porsche bug-eyed look that has the style volume turned up for the modern age. There is nothing dated or old-fashioned about this Porsche's exterior: it has been completely updated for today.
