New Porsche Turbos: Head turners
Porsche showed its new 911 Turbo and Turbo S 2017 models at the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January. More powerful with faster acceleration and higher speeds, the Turbo S is going to be another head turner from the Porsche stable. Porsche promises the 2017 Turbos will be 20 horsepower more powerful and at the same time with increased fuel efficiency (Photo courtesy: www.porsche.com).
Examples on the 911 Turbo include the new front section with its equally new front lights, as well as the black airblades. Powerful design serves to emphasise the vehicle’s dynamism. LED headlights with four-point daytime running lights are part of the standard specification of all models.
The door handles are integrated into the vehicle even more harmoniously than before, while the forged wheels have become more intricate.
To the rear, the rear lid grille with vertical slats attracts admiring glances. As do the three-dimensional taillights, the reflector units integrated into the air outlets and the powerfully shaped twin tailpipes.
The interior character is never frivolous, always direct, focused on the driver, says Porsche. It features clever technology and clear operating logic – such as that of the two-zone air conditioning system or the suspension settings button. Rather than browsing one submenu after another, you can concentrate on what’s important: the road.
The 911 Turbo S keeps that promise in an exceptionally impressive way with a 3.8-litre, twinturbo six-cylinder engine that has even larger turbochargers than the 911 Turbo, according to Porsche. Developing 427 kW (580 hp), the maximum torque is 750 Nm. You accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in a breathtaking 2.9 seconds. And reach 200 km/h in 9.9 seconds. Top speed: 330 km/h.
