Our friend Christian Gebhardt from sportauto.de has conducted another speed test with the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S.
While last time he got behind the wheel of a pre-production car, this time he had the opportunity of driving a production-spec model and managed to complete the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 3 seconds which is 0.1s faster than the official time provided by Porsche. As for the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) sprint, this took just only 10 seconds, en route to a top speed of 206.9 mph (333 km/h) shown on the speedometer.
These impressive figures were attainable thanks to a 3.8-liter, 6-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 560 HP (412 kW) transferred to the ground with help from a dual-clutch, seven-speed PDK. Christian proved Porsche was pretty modest in terms of top speed as the official maximum speed stands at 198 mph (318 km/h).
The 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S has been on sale since September from a starting price in Germany of 195,256 EUR (VAT included).
