2011 Porsche 911 Turbo S revealed (+video)

Porsche will be pushing the limits on its 911 series when it introduces the 911 Turbo S at the Geneva auto show next month.

The 911 Turbo S features a significant increase of 30 bhp over the standard 911 Turbo, bringing horsepower up to 530 bhp (390 kW), while torque sees a slight increase to 700 Nm (516 lb-ft). Top speed is lifted slightly (by 3 km/h) to 315 km/h. Fuel consumption also remains the same as the standard Turbo at 11.4 liters/100 km.

Additional buyer-attracting upgrades include providing the 911 Turbo S with all the options available on the 911 Turbo as standard. The 911 Turbo S will come with Porsche’s 7-speed PDK (double-clutch) transmission, Porsche traction management (PTM) for the all-wheel drive system, as well as Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) which includes a differential lock for the rear axle. Another part of the top-spec Porsche standard package is the Launch Control and Sport Chrono systems that help accelerate this 911 Turbo S from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 3.3 seconds, shaving up to a tenth of a second from the standard 911 Turbo’s time with PDK.

Aesthetic features include 19-inch central locking wheels in an RS Spyder design and a two-tone leather finish in either Black/Crema or Black/Titanium Blue.
The Porsche 911 Turbo S will come as both a cabriolet and coupe model. It will be available in global dealerships starting from May.

German pricing has been announced, €173,241 ($346,500 NZ) for the Turbo S Coupe, and €184,546 ($368,500 NZ) for the 911 Turbo S Cabriolet.
