Porsche 911, the quickest and most powerful 911 Turbo model ever

Edward Green ▼ | April 30, 2020
A new 3.8-liter boxer engine with two VTG turbochargers represents the beating heart of the car and puts out 60 hp more than its predecessor.

Porsche 911Maximum torque now stands at 590 lb.-ft. - an increase of 37 lb.-ft. The engine is paired with a Turbo-specific eight-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) dual-clutch transmission. As a result, it goes from zero to 60 mph in just 2.6 seconds (2.7 seconds for the Cabriolet), which represents a 0.2 second reduction compared to the previous model. The 911 Turbo S Coupe reaches the standing quarter mile mark in 10.5 seconds. Top track speed for both Turbo S models is 205 mph.

Porsche 911The body of the new 911 Turbo S is wider than its predecessor to further enhance driving dynamics: it's now approximately 1.8 inches wider at the front (72.44 inches), and the overall width is 74.8 inches at the rear axle (an increase of 0.78 inches). Modified track widths, optimized aerodynamics, and new tires contribute to its agility and sportiness: the track is now 1.65 inches at the front axle and 0.39 inches wider at the rear axle.

Porsche 911The adaptive aerodynamics now include adaptive cooling air flaps at the front, while the larger rear wing has been designed to provide even more downforce. For the first time, the 911 Turbo S transfers its power to the road using staggered center-lock wheels in two different diameters: 20-inch wheels at the front are wrapped in model-specific 255/35 tires, while the 21-inch rear wheels use 315/30 tires. The front and rear tires are 10 millimeters wider than on 2020 911 Carrera S models and compared to previous 911 Turbo models.

Porsche 911Two new factory options, which were not available on the previous generation, further increase the performance and powerful character of the new 911 Turbo S: The Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) Sport suspension with a ride height lowered by 0.39 inches (-10 mm) compared to the standard PASM suspension, and the Sport Exhaust System with adjustable exhaust flaps and distinct oval tailpipes that guarantees a particularly distinctive sound.
