Porsche 2021 911 Turbo Revealed

Porsche has revealed its new model of the 911 Turbo and Turbo S and they are to be the most powerful cars in the 911 Series yet. The new Turbo S generates an astonishing 640 horsepower, while the Turbo model is no slouch with 572 horsepower making it on par with the 2019 911 Turbo S. The top speed of the 2021 911 Turbo is 198 mph, whereas, the new Turbo S goes up to 205 mph. That means that the 911 Turbo goes from 0 to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds while the Turbo S coupe takes 2.6 seconds and the Turbo S cabriolet takes 2.7 seconds as well.

The Turbo S comes equipped with a twin-turbo 3.8-liter six-cylinder boxer plant sporting a specialized eight-speed PDK dual clutch transmission, electrically-adjustable waste-gate flaps, redesigned charge air cooling system and Piezo injectors. The chassis has been tuned to compliment the increase in power and the steering has also been improved with the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel drive giving more power and control than ever.

Traction has been improved with wider track width and bigger tires. The new model is 1.8 inches wider at the front with model-specific 255/35 tires around 20-inch wheels and 0.39 inches wider at the rear with 21-inch wheels supporting 315/30 tires rather than the 305/30 R 20 as in the older model. The front brake rotors have also gotten a slight increase from 410 mm to 420 mm.

The Turbo S comes with an adjustable Sport Exhaust system which is for the first time available for the Turbo model as well. As for the suspension, two options are available: the standard suspension and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) which lowers the car by 0.39 inches.

As for the exterior, though it is a new model, the 2021 Turbo maintains the classic 911 look. The interior is identical to the current 911 Carrera model. The Turbo’s Porsche Advanced Cockpit and Direct Touch Control are accessible through a 10.9-inch Porsche Communication Management (PCM) center screen.

The Dynamic Chassis Control, rear-axle steering, and the Ceramic Composite Brakes with 10-piston calipers have been kept from the previous models.

The revealed retail price for the 2021 911 Turbo Coupe is $170,800, while the cabriolet costs $183,600. The 2021 911 Turbo S coupe costs $203,500 while the cabriolet costs $216,300.
