This facelifted Porsche 911 Turbo S 991.2 is built to bring range-topping models in line with the other 911 gen models. Its styling tweaks are subtle to say the least, yet the revised models are actually distinguished by some thin LED light strips in front of its bumper, the 3D rear lights, and a new wheel design. Aside from that, it has also a new engine cover that comes with vertical slats.
The cabin of Porsche 911 Turbo remained unchanged, yet there’s a new 360mm steering wheel that replaces the outgoing 380 millimeter. It also features a much-improved Porsche Communications Management System. There’s also a rotary switch on its steering wheel, which enables the driver to toggle through the different drive modes of the car. The performance figures are definitely much sensational compared before and there are also some revisions beneath its skin.
Transmission and Engine
Porsche 911 Turbo S still has a 3.8L twin-turbocharged boxer 6, yet modified inlet ports, higher fuel pressure, and new injection nozzles have helped to liberate extra 20 HP. Boost pressure has also increased by 0.15 bar. Its peak power is 580 HP (427 kW), which delivered 6750rpm. A 7-speed PDK twin clutch gearbox is its only transmission option.
Porsche 911 Turbo’s power is naturally channeled to all 4 wheels. Its clutch plates in 4-wheel drive system have an increased friction coefficient that ensures more precise and faster torque distribution to the front axle while its rear axle feature torque vectoring differential.
Porsche also lists the 0-62 mph time of Porsche 911 Turbo S as seconds, yet the engineers claim that it is actually conservative. But, they always achieve 2.9 sec sprints in perfect conditions. Its top speed is 205mph (330 km/h).
The German car manufacturer has introduced dynamic boost function for improving the throttle response. The system enables the throttle valve open for a particular period of time after the driver lifts the accelerator pedal as well as interrupts fuel supply. It means that the boost pressure is maintained, so one the driver reapplies power, there is no delay as turbochargers spool back up.
Porsche 911 Turbo’s rotary switches on its steering wheel, which allows the driver to choose from the different modes including Normal, Sport, and Sport Plus. There’s also a programmable individual setting. The button found in the middle of the switch activates Sport Response mode that primes the drivetrain for maximum performance and response for a twenty-second period to facilitate overtaking.
There is also a middle setting for Porsche Stability Management that can be accessed separately from Sport Plus and Sport modes. This advance setting enables a little more slip without getting rid of the safety nets completely. The Porsche 911 Turbo’s Porsche Carbon Ceramic Brakes, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, Porsche Active Suspension Management, and much more are all standard.
If you’re looking for a sensational supercar, Porsche 911 Turbo 991.2 is the best for you. It comes with great features and offers excellent performance that other cars can’t achieve.
