Few days ago, Porsche introduced a limited edition of the 911 Turbo S. It is called the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series. We can understand the logic behind this ‘new’ model. The 911 model range is getting old and approaching to the end of its product life-cycle, and the company has to offer something new to support the sales figure until the new model is revealed.
Limited to 500 units worldwide, the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series is not only a branding mimic, but also a very powerful 911! The existing 3.8-lt bi-turbo engine is now producing 607 HP! This is 27 HP more than the existing 911 Turbo. The amount of torque generated by the 911 Turbo S is now 750 Nm and it delivers between 2,250 and 4,000 rpm. This torque range curve will offer both a high performance driving experience and low engine revs for long journeys.
The acceleration figures of the Turbo S are also very close to hyper car territories! 0-62 mph (100 kph) is reached in only 2.9 seconds and it only takes 9.6 seconds to reach 124 mph (200 kph). Unlike other German brands, the top speed of the Porsche 911 Turbo S is not limited to 155 mph (255 kph), and it can easily top 205 mph (330 kph).
The 911 Turbo S also offers the existing features of its sibling. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), rear-axle steering, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) and the Sport Chrono pack are standard options.
The unique character of the 911 Turbo S is reflected in the exterior through black painted 20-inch wheels with centre lock hubs. The Golden Yellow Metallic exterior colour makes the Turbo S stand out from the existing 911 range. You will also find the existing comfort and luxury features of the 911 range with the 911 Turbo S.
Overall, the Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series offers a very tempting performance upgrade for a very limited number of customers. The exterior and the interior detailing is going to make this car a collector’s item for the future. However, we can’t ignore the fact that Porsche revealed this car at the end of the 911’s product lifecycle, and that it needs to keep the sales figures strong.
