Despite the significant increase in power and performance, the new
911 Turbo S, at 11.4 litres/ 100 kilometre, does not consume any more fuel than the Porsche 911 Turbo, making it by far the most efficient sports car in its performance class.

Driving safety and performance are further optimised with Dynamic Engine Mounts and Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) mechanical rear differential lock as standard.

911 Turbo S in five years.
