Taking the 911 Turbo to a new level
Australia. On the eve of the launch of the new 911 Turbo Coupe and Cabriolet in Australia, Porsche has announced that it will reveal to the world the even more dynamic 911 Turbo S at the Geneva International Motor Show on March 02.
The new top-of-the-range 911 takes all the virtues of the 911 Turbo, but adds even more performance and equipment. At the heart of the exclusive 911 Turbo S is the same six-cylinder boxer engine with twin turbochargers found in the 911 Turbo, but with power boosted from 368 kW to 390 kW. Maximum torque is bolstered from 650 Nm to a super impressive 700 Nm.
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.
The 911 Turbo S comes exclusively with Porsche’s seven-speed double-clutch (PDK) transmission, conveying drive to the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive system.
Driving safety and performance are further optimised with Dynamic Engine Mounts and Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) mechanical rear differential lock as standard.
In conjunction with Launch Control featured as part of the now standard Sport Chrono Package, the 911 Turbo S accelerates from a zero to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and reaches 200 km/h in 10.8 seconds Top speed is 315 km/h.
Extra-light and fade-resistant Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) are also standard and provide outstanding stopping power and braking control.
The supreme level of standard equipment including Dynamic Cornering Lights, 19-inch wheels in RS Spyder design with single-piece centre lock, three-spoke sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles, adaptive sports seats, iPod/USB and Bluetooth connectivity, plus exclusive twin-tone leather upholstery in Black/Crema or Black/Titanium Blue additionally underline the outstanding class and calibre of this first 911 Turbo S in five years.
The Porsche 911 Turbo S will be available in both Coupe and Cabriolet and go on sale in Australia in August 2010, priced from $423,300 and $442,800 respectively.
Meanwhile, the new 911 Turbo Coupe and Cabriolet are now available in Porsche Centres throughout Australia, priced from $360,100 and $386,200 respectively.
Prices do not include Statutory, Compulsory Insurance and Dealer charges.
