2020 Porsche 911 Turbo S price and release date
You can spec either a hard-top version of the Porsche 911 Turbo S or choose to go topless with the Cabriolet version. Both models are available for you to order now, with the coupe priced from £155,970. You’ll have to fork out extra for the Cabriolet’s open-top, wind-rushing-through-your-hair feeling; that car will set you back at least £165,127.
2020 Porsche 911 Turbo S design
There are no surprises when it comes to the Porsche 911 Turbo S’s design. From the shape of the body to the style of the headlights, it’s a 911 that looks well and truly like a 911.
However, the Turbo S is wider than its predecessor, which hardly had a slight stance to begin with. It’s now 1,900mm across the rear axle – 20mm more than the old car. The Turbo S has also been given a larger rear spoiler. Combined with a redesigned front splitter, Porsche says this gives the new model 15% more downforce than the last one. In turn, this makes the car more aerodynamic.
Also, the Turbo S’s front wheels are 20 inches in diameter; the rear ones are 21.
2020 Porsche 911 Turbo S performance
The Porsche 911 Turbo S has been fitted with a new twin-turbocharged, 3.8-litre flat-six engine. It produces 650hp, which is 70hp more than the old model. Similarly, the torque has been upped by 50Nm to a total of 800Nm. The car is also all-wheel-drive, with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox fitted as standard.
Porsche claims the Turbo S can go from 0-60mph in just under 2.7 seconds and can reach 120mph from a standstill in 8.9 seconds. This is all before it maxes out at a top speed of 205mph.
2020 Porsche 911 Turbo S interior
Inside, the Porsche 911 Turbo S comes with 18-way adjustable sports seats. Full leather upholstery is included as standard, as is some silver-accented carbon-fibre trim.
The Porsche 911 Turbo S’s dashboard-mounted infotainment touchscreen is 10.9 inches across, with satnav integrated as standard. Options include a BOSE sound system and the Sport Chrono package. This gives the car extra performance displays, analogue and digital stopwatches, and a Sport Plus button that stiffens the Turbo S’s adaptive dampers and tightens the steering.
