Porsche is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the 911 Turbo and on this occasion it has revealed the 911 Turbo and Turbo S, ahead of a public debut scheduled for September at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The Turbo S is powered by a rear mounted, turbocharged, 3.8 liter six cylinder engine with direct fuel injection producing 560 hp. Porsche offers two turbochargers with variable turbine geometry on a gasoline engine. The Turbo S accelerates from 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 198 mph.
Power is transferred to the drivetrain via a seven speed dual clutch transmission (PDK), which now enables an auto start/stop function with engine shutoff, which activates earlier while the car is coming to a stop as well as when coasting at speed. A new combined thermal management system for the turbo engine and the PDK transmission are projected to result in real world fuel economy improvements
The S model is well equipped on the interior, offering features such as an exclusive interior in a black/Carrera red color combination and standard Sport Seats Plus with 18 way adjustment and memory. In addition, the seat back shells are upholstered in leather with double cap seams and various elements in carbon look. For the first time, a Burmestera system is also available as an optional feature. A radar controlled cruise control system, camera based road sign recognition, and speed limit recognition are other new options being offered.
