Porsche has revealed today the 911 Turbo and Turbo S, ahead of a public debut scheduled for September at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Following several reports and batches of spy shots, the latest 911 Turbo lineup has arrived. Turbo and Turbo S make use of a six-cylinder, 3.8-liter direct-injection turbocharged engine delivering 520 HP (383 kW) in the 911 Turbo and 560 HP (412 kW) in the 911 Turbo S variant. Power is transferred to all four wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch PDK with auto stop/start function which has slashed off fuel consumption by 16 percent to 9.7 liters / 100 km (24.2 mpg US or 29.1 mpg UK).
The 911 Turbo equipped with Sport Chrono Package will do 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.2 seconds, while the Turbo S is 0.1s quicker. Both of them are capable of reaching a top speed of 198 mph (318 km/h).
Length has increased by 40mm to 4490mm, while width is also up by 28mm compared to Carrera 4 models to 1878mm. Porsche has also stretched the wheelbase by 100mm to 2450mm, while the front and rear tracks are also longer than before. Both models ride on 20-inch alloy wheels but only the S version has hub wheel locks. The Turbo S also gains full LED headlights with four-point daytime running lights and camera-based main beam control (optionally available for Turbo).
Just like the 911 GT3, the Turbo variants have four-wheel steering which help the cars lap Nürburgring in less than 7 minutes 30 seconds with standard production tires fitted. Both of them have a retractable three-stage rear spoiler and a deployable rear wing with three adjustable wing positions.
Scheduled to reach the market in September, the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo has a starting price in Germany of 162,055 EUR while the 911 Turbo S begins at 195,256 EUR. VAT and country-specific taxes included.
