Porsche 991 Turbo s for Sale
Some Porsche ‘purists’ will say to you the 911 Turbo isn’t a real 911. That the existence of a compressor somehow detracts from the technical rightness of naturally aspirated 911s.
Confronted with such a purist, you may possibly now let them vent their particular spleen then reply: “Yes, nevertheless the brand-new 911 Turbo S does 0-62mph in 3.1 moments, 197mph flat-out and that can lap the Nurburgring Nordscliefe in under seven moments and 30 moments.”
That’ll shut ‘em up (they’re normally the kind of individual who likes to chat figures).
Yes, probably the most powerful ‘991’ 911 is here now, also it’s insane. 500 and fifty-two horsepowers of insane, become precise, thanks to a twin-turbocharged version of Porsche’s 3.8-litre flat-six feeling all tires through a seven-speed PDK (without manual option available at all, similar to the brand-new GT3 RS).
If 552bhp of insane is a little too outrageous available, Porsche has also cooked up a 911 Turbo (no ‘S’) with 513bhp from a lower-boost version of similar engine. Equipped with the optional Sport Chrono package, that automobile will nail the 0-62mph sprint in 3.2 moments, which can be virtually just like its larger sibling: scarcely shabby.
Porsche is keen to worry the efficiency of its new engines, guaranteeing a return of 29mpg from both the Turbo and Turbo S. We suspect you shall struggle to achieve that number if you’re aiming to match Porsche’s Nurburgring claims: a sub-7m30s time would put the Turbo S in front of the Ferrari 458 and, possibly, the Porsche Carrera GT and the Pagani Zonda F. Sheesh.
Barrelling round the Karussel, perhaps you are thankful the brand new rear-wheel steer suited to all Turbo designs. This energetic system sees the rear rims turn-in the exact opposite direction to the fronts at increases to 31mph – effectively reducing the wheelbase to enhance agility – but in equivalent course while the fronts above 50mph to help stability.
The energetic tech doesn’t end here. A three-stage front side spoiler and flexible rear wing may be implemented to ‘maximum attack’ place for complete downforce, an environment that Porsche states will improve the Turbo S’s ‘Ring time by as much as two moments. Every little helps.
911 spotters may also spot the Turbo and Turbo S’s 28mm broader rear human anatomy panels and brand new 20-inch forged alloys, as well as the brand new full-LED headlights – standard from the Turbo S, recommended in the Turbo.
The rest of us will spot the ambitious pricing: the Turbo begins at £118, 349, using the Turbo S costing from £140, 852. As well as your transport expenses to and from the ‘Ring, needless to say.
