Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet

From Porsche press: With 444-horsepower, and with 457 lb.-ft. of torque available between 3,500 and 4,500 rpm, the 2005 Porsche Turbo S can sprint from a standing start to a speed of 124 mph (200 km/h) in a mere 13.6 seconds, nearly a second faster than last year’s 911 Turbo. 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time for the Turbo S is 4.2 seconds for the Coupe and 4.3 seconds for the Cabriolet.

In testing on closed circuits, the 2005 Porsche Turbo S achieved speeds as high as 190 mph.

The Porsche Turbo S Coupe and Cabriolet are designed for long-distance comfort as well as high performance, with equipment such as a Bose® digital audio system and leather seating on the standard equipment list as well as the Porsche Communication Management system with navigation and a 5.8-inch color monitor.

The engine’s amazing output reaches the drive wheels through a standard six-speed manual transmission. Porsche’s advanced Tiptronic S five-speed automatic transmission is available as an option. The six-speed manual features a dual-mass flywheel for decreased vibration and a hydraulic clutch for consistent performance.
