First, in the spring, the most powerful version of the Porsche 911 Turbo S was released, and only now it has been joined by a younger version without the prefix S in the name. But the differences between the two modifications were largely down to the settings.
From the outside, Turbo and Turbo S are the same: the nuances of decoration of cars in the presentation photos do not count, because the program of individualization at Porsche is the widest — and the buyer can order any option he likes.
A regular Porsche 911 Turbo has the same engine as the “ESCA”: only the models of turbochargers with variable geometry of the guide device differ,of which there are two. Oppozitnik six-cylinder with a volume of 3.75 l develops 580 HP and 750 Nm. Exactly the same indicators were in the previous Porsche 911 Turbo S, and the current “Eska” has 650 HP and 800 Nm.
The eight-speed “robot” PDK with two clutches and all-wheel drive transmission with a clutch on the front axle are the same as the Turbo s version. The front has tires of dimension 255/35 R20, the rear-315/30 R21. But there are differences in the chassis: the Turbo version has a PASM suspension with adaptive shock absorbers, but for the “tightened” version with a reduced 10 mm ground clearance, you need to pay extra, whereas the turbo s modification is a “base”. The PDCC hydraulic crossbar stabilizers are also included in the list of options.
In dynamics, the new Porsche 911 Turbo loses “esque” just a little. Acceleration to 100 km / h in the coupe takes 2.8 s against 2.7 s, and the maximum speed is 320 instead of 330 km/h. The cabriolet is even a little slower. You can reduce this difference by ordering a Lightweight Design package: installing lightweight front seats and eliminating the rear seats (which are already rated) and parts of the noise insulation will reduce the weight of the car by 30 kg.
But the new Porsche 911 Turbo is 32 thousand euros cheaper than the Turbo s version. In Germany, the coupe is estimated at least 181 thousand euros, and the convertible — at 194 thousand. The machines are already available for order, and deliveries to customers will begin in the fall.
