February 2nd, 2016 by


The new Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S shined last week at their premiere during the Detroit Auto Show. The Detroit Auto Show is the destination for next-generation products and technologies to make their world debut.

These new high-performance sports cars proved they can achieve exceptional driving performance. The 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S now boast more power, a sharpened design and improved features.

Porsche describes these new vehicles as the top models of the 911 model series. These models now boast 15 kW (20 hp, 911 Turbo: Combined fuel consumption 9.1 l/100 km, CO2 emissions 212 g/km, 911 Turbo Cabriolet: Combined fuel consumption 9.3 l/100 km, CO2emissions 216 g/km) more power, a sharpened design and improved features. The models will be available in both coupe and convertible versions from the start. The bi-turbo six-cylinder engine in the 911 Turbo with 3.8 liters of displacement now has a power output of 397 kW (540 hp). This power gain was achieved by modified inlet ports in the cylinder head, new injection nozzles and higher fuel pressure. The 911 and the Turbo S now delivers 427 kW (580 hp) thanks to new turbochargers with larger compressors. Porsche is still the only manufacturer to utilize turbochargers with variable turbine geometry in petrol engines.

There is no doubt that we are blown away by these new vehicles from Porsche. Check out what the media had to say about them from the auto show.

 “The results are awesome: The Turbo engine makes 540-horsepower in standard form, or 580-horsepower in the S. From a standstill, the run from 0 to 60 mph comes up in a ridiculous 2.9 or 2.8 seconds- top speed is rated at 198 mph or 205 mph, respectively. You couldn’t ask for more” –nydailynews.com

“Has the 911 Turbo lost its status in the new all-turbo Porsche 911 range? Not a chance, the 2016 Turbo and Turbo S are quicker than ever.” – autoexpress.co.uk

“Flagship 911 Turbo now gets 397kW; Turbo S gets 427kw- both cleaner, more efficient, faster.” –motoring.com.au

“Not known for austerity or restraint, the latest Porsche 911 pushes even further: more horsepower, faster acceleration and higher top speeds.” Ctv.news.ca
