Default Porsche unveils 530 bhp 911 Turbo S

From worldcarfans


Press release from Porsche
Porsche 911 Turbo S: Even More Dynamic, Top Equipment all Standard
World Debut in Geneva: New Top Model in the 911 Series

Stuttgart. The engineers at Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, have developed a new top-of-the-range sports car for the customer who will only settle for the very best in terms of power, performance and driving dynamics: the 911 Turbo S.

The heart of this most exclusive high-performance athlete is of course a six-cylinder boxer boosted by two exhaust gas turbochargers with variable turbine geometry, with an increase in power over the 911 Turbo by 30 to 530 bhp (390 kW). Maximum torque is a most impressive 700 Newton-metres (516 lb-ft). At the same time this new top model comes as standard with all high-tech components available only as options on the "regular" 911 Turbo.
Despite its significant increase in power and dynamic performance, the new 911 Turbo S, at 11.4 litres/100 kilometres (equal to 24.8 mpg imp), does not consume any more fuel than the Porsche 911 Turbo, making it by far the most efficient sports car in its performance class.
The 911 Turbo S comes exclusively with seven-speed Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) (Porsche's Double-Clutch Gearbox) conveying drive power to Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive. Driving safety optimised to an even higher standard is ensured by Dynamic Engine Mounts and Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) including a mechanical differential lock on the rear axle. In conjunction with Launch Control on the Sport Chrono Package Turbo likewise featured as standard, 911 Turbo S accelerates from a standstill to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and reaches 200 km/h in 10.8 seconds
Top speed is 315 km/h or 195 mph. Extra-light and fading-resistant Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) provide the same outstanding performance in terms of stopping power and controlled application of the brakes.
The supreme level of standard equipment including Dynamic Bending Lights, 19-inch wheels in RS Spyder design with central locking, a three-spoke sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles, adaptive sports seats, cruise control, a CD/DVD changer and exclusive twin-tone leather upholstery in Black/Crema or Black/Titanium Blue additionally underlines the outstanding class and calibre of this first Turbo S in five years.
The new Porsche 911 Turbo S will be at the dealership as both a Coupé and Cabriolet as of May 2010. The German market price of the Turbo S Coupé is Euro 173,241 including 19 per cent value-added tax and local equipment in the market (the Euro base price is Euro 145,400). The Cabriolet retails in the German market at Euro 184.546, again including 19 per cent VAT and local equipment/specifications (base price Euro 154,900).

Hey Sid,

What to look out for:

- 30 horsepower more than the standard Turbo
- Intuitive (PDK 'box) paddles behind the steering wheel (replaces the numb toggles)
- That's it!

Of course it's all right! Heh.... You dont need permission from anyone to post lovely high res pics over which all petrolheads drool

This new Porsche seems awesome. I am kinda getting bored of this shape though. I cant wait for the 998!

I'm actually still fantasising about that 1993 Porsche you posted in the Best Alloy wheels thread.

The 998 should be quite promising but it will still take some time to hit the streets. It will look slightly different when compared to the 997, I reckon!

Oh, and I'm glad you like those pictures, Nikhil! I've been drooling over them ever since I saw them almost a year back!

Yes even the Cayman S and Cayman base model or Boxster S or Boxster base model look same, the only difference in exterior of Cayman S and Cayman is 17'' and 18'' wheels and their design and the badging.

I think that any and all super car manufacturers need to take the week off and sit at home, paying homage to the genius that is Porsche. 530bhp 3.3 seconds to the ton, 10.8 to 200 KM/h, 24.8mpg / 8.77 KM/L

Figures that would give any rival engineer nightmares for months. And all that out of a 3.8L boxer 6! They have really taken the fight to all others with this beast!

With the introduction of new 911(997) Turbo S, it is a good time to look back and see how it all got started. Most Porschephiles know that the first turbocharged 911 was introduced in 1974 (930) and was equipped with a 3.0-liter engine that produced 260 horsepower. The first 911 Turbo S model was introduced years later in 1993. Limited to just 86 units, 911 Turbo S(Type 964) featured a 3.3-liter flat six engine that produced an impressive 380 hp.
In 1997, Porsche introduced a 911 Turbo S(Type 993) with a 3.6-liter flat six engine that produced 450 horsepower. Type 993 Turbo S was the last air-cooled 911 Turbo.
In 2004 Porsche introduced a 911 Turbo S(Type 996) with a 3.6-liter flat six engine that produced 450 horsepower. It is the only 911 Turbo S that did not offer more power compared to the previous version.
Now in 2010 we are getting a type 997 model with an impressive 530 horsepower from a 3.8-liter flat six engine. 0-100 km/h comes in just 3.3 seconds(0.1 seconds faster than the regular 911 Turbo and reaches a top speed of 315 km/h(195 mph).

The best just got better. That's all I can say. I assume the S stands for 'Sport"?
