2020 Porsche 911 Turbo S – The ultimate 911
In the world of Porsche, the hierarchy of models is clear, and while there exist limited production, winged monsters such as the GT3 RS, the true big daddy is the Turbo S, and when Porsche unveils a new one, you listen up.
In the day and age of change, Porsche has stuck to its roots and in the Turbo S sits a 3.8-litre boxer engine with twin turbos. After a major upgrade, this monster produces 650 hp and 800 Nm with a top speed of 330 km/h, and a 0-100 km/h in a face tearing 2.7 seconds. Power is sent through an 8-speed Porshce Doppelkupplung gearbox.
The car is now wider and longer to improve aerodynamics, as well as making the car more agile. Speaking of aerodynamics. There are now cooling slaps at the front which can be controlled, and a rather big wing. The latter producing, together with an active front spoiler, 15 per cent more downforce compared to older generation Turbo S. Mixed tire sizes are 20 inch, 255 mm wide, in the front, and 21 inch, 315 mm wide, in the rear. I think it is important to note that the car is all-wheel drive, which will hopefully keep the 650 hp at bay. By checking the Porsche active suspension management sport chassi, the car is lowered by 10 mm. Other options include an exhaust system with adjustable flaps.
Prices in Sweden start from 211 000 euro. Oh, and if you fancy some wind in your hair, there is also a Turbo S Cabriolet, which will set you back 225 000 euro.
