New Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S revealed with up to 560 hp

The new Porsche 911 (991) Turbo and Turbo S are here and available to order as of today.

Packing a new all-wheel drive with active rear axle steering, adaptive aerodynamics, full-LED headlights, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) active anti-roll system, a lightweight design chassis with 100 mm longer wheelbase and active aerodynamics, the new 911 Turbo is sure to raise the bar in the sports car segment.

The turbocharged 3.8-litre flat-six engine with direct petrol injection produces 520 hp in the 911 Turbo, and 560 hp in the Turbo S, with the latter lapping the Nürburgring-Nordschleife well under 7 min 30 sec.

Power is transferred to the drivetrain via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, which enables an auto start/stop function with engine shut-off, improving fuel consumption by up to 16 per cent to 29.1 mpg.

With the optional Sport Chrono Package Plus it takes 911 Turbo 3.2 seconds to reach 0-62mph and 3.1 seconds for the Turbo S. Top speed is 197mph.

The 911 Turbo S rear body panels are 28mm wider than those of the new 911 Carrera 4 models.

The interior builds on the styling themes of the new 911 family with the Turbo S offering an exclusive interior in a Black/Carrera Red colour combination and Sport Seats Plus with 18-way adjustment and position memory.

The 911 Turbo is priced from £118,349 and the Turbo S from £140,852 with first deliveries in September 2013.
