50 years ago, Porsche 911 made its debut at the Frankfurt International Auto Show. Just 10 years later, the first 911 Turbo prototype was at the IAA (Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung). On this 40th anniversary of the 911 Turbo, Porsche is now presenting the new generation 911 Turbo S – the technological and dynamic performance peak of the 911 family. A new all-wheel-drive system, active rear axle steering, adaptive aerodynamics, full-LED headlights, and up to 560 hp from a flat six-cylinder engine with twin-turbochargers underscore the role of the new version 911 Turbo as an ultra performance car, every day car, and technology flagship. Playing an equally crucial role are an entirely new chassis and lightweight design with a 3.9-inch longer wheelbase and larger 20-inch wheels. The Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) active anti-roll system, which is being offered for the first time in 911 Turbo models, increases dynamic performance significantly. This new system comes as standard equipment in the 911 Turbo S, as is Sport Chrono Package Plus with dynamic engine mounts, and Porsche Carbon Ceramic Composite Brakes. As a result, he new 911 Turbo S shortens the lap time for the North Loop of the Nürburgring to well under 7 and a half minutes with standard production tires.
The new engine and refined PDK transmission is partnered with a new Porsche Traction Management all-wheel drive system. The turbocharged 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine with direct fuel injection produces 520 hp in the 911 Turbo and 560 hp in the S model. Porsche continues to be the only carmaker to offer 2 turbochargers with variable turbine geometry on a gasoline engine system. 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. Turbo S model now capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds!
