The 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo was unveiled on Wednesday. It packs as much power as the last-generation 911 Turbo S, with all the moves that made the 992-generation one of the best sport car to buy.
Powered by a twin-turbocharged, 3.8-litre flat six engine, the Turbo pumps out 572 hp (427 kW) and 750 Nm of torque with an overboost function. That’s a 40 hp (30 kW) and 40 Nm increase over its predecessor, which is achieved through a redesigned charge air cooling system, and symmetrical variable geometry turbochargers with electrically controlled wastegate bypass valves; changes that are claimed to deliver a more responsive, freer-revving power delivery.
Power reaches all four wheels via the eight-speed PDK gearbox which allows the new 911 Turbo S to hit 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds (0.2s faster than 991.2). The top speed remains unchanged at 198 mph (320 km/h).
Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), which uses active anti-roll stabilization, is available as an option for the 911 Turbo models, as are a Sport Exhaust system and the Sport and Lightweight packages.
Another amazing features in the 2021 911 Turbo is the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel drive system, able to transfer even more power to the front wheels than before. Traction at the rear, which features rear-axle steering as standard, is increased even further by 0.39 inches of added track width compared to the last 911 Turbo, as well as 315/30 R21 tires.
The list of upgrades also features a revamped brake system with larger rotors and red fixed calipers, while Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) are optional.
Prices start at $170,800 for the Coupe and $183,600 for the Cabriolet, excluding the $1,350 delivery, processing and handling fee. In Germany, the 911 Turbo Coupe starts at €180,811 while the 911 Turbo Cabriolet kicks off at €194,035.
