As expected, after delivering the 911 Turbo and then producing an updated model with 530-hp, the German sports car experts at Porsche have now revealed the 911 Turbo S with 530-hp – the very same amount produced by the GT2. Using the same twin-turbo flat six, torque has also been upped to 516 ft-lbs enabling an alarmingly fast 0-62 mph time of just 3.3 seconds. Top speed is rated at an impressive 196-mph.
Power is transmitted to the ground with all four wheels via Porsche’s seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission with paddle shifters.
Other highlights include launch control, the Sport Chrono Package, Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) and 19-inch center-locking RS Spyder style wheels.
Both a coupe and cabriolet model will be offered with the official debut at the Geneva Auto Show in March.
Pricing for the car is set at €145,400 for the coupe and €154,900 for the cabriolet, plus tax, with U.S. pricing expected shortly.
We’ll bring you more on this car and the rest of the world premieres at the Geneva Auto Show starting March 1st.
