The styling is dynamic without being fussy. Sporty without being ostentatious. In short, no gimmicks, no showiness, no doubts.
The side air-intake grilles in the front apron have titanium-coloured painted slats. To the right or left respectively of the grilles are the daytime running lights, positioned low down. Like the indicators, they utilise LED technology to provide increased illumination and give a characteristic look. Optional dynamic cornering lights are an additional safety feature (standard on 911 Turbo S models).
Glancing over the sides of the 911 Turbo models, you will notice the linear, no-frills twin-spoke design of the 911 Turbo II wheels. Elements of the spokes and wheel rim have a high-sheen finish. The wheels are forged and the sophisticated technology facilitates a lightweight, yet highly rigid design.
On the 911 Turbo S models, the forged aluminium wheels in the RS Spyder design with a central locking device provide a good glimpse of the yellow brake calipers of the standard Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB).
The rear features LED taillights that extend right round to the wings where they taper to a point. The LED brake lights respond extremely quickly, thereby increasing active safety. In other words, the traffic behind is warned sooner.
The two tailpipes are positioned neatly in the recesses of the rear apron and provide a visual reminder of the engine’s increased power.
A characteristic feature of the 911 Turbo is the rear wing, which extends at 120 km/h, retracting again when vehicle speed drops to around 60 km/h. The drag coefficient is just 0.31 (Cabriolet models: 0.32).
The interior design is also characteristic: sporty, uncluttered and ergonomically refined. Careful consideration has been given to the interior geometry and there is a generous amount of occupant space. The gear lever design is exclusive to 911 Turbo models equipped as standard with the manual gearbox. Reserved for 911 Turbo S models is the two-tone leather interior with contrasting seams on the seats, door panels and dashboard.
