The New Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S

Posted on 03. May, 2013 by in Porsche Canada

Turbo S indication now able of accelerating from 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds

Atlanta. The Porsche indication descent in a anniversary year of a 911 is reaching new heights. Fifty years ago, a 911 done a entrance during a Frankfurt International Auto Show – and usually 10 years later, a initial 911 Turbo antecedent was during a IAA. On this 40th anniversary of a 911 Turbo, Porsche is now presenting a new era 911 Turbo and Turbo S – a technological and energetic opening rise of a 911 series. A new all-wheel-drive system, active behind spindle steering, adaptive aerodynamics, full-LED headlights, and adult to 560 hp from a prosaic six-cylinder engine with twin-turbochargers underscore a purpose of a new era 911 Turbo as an ultra opening car, each day car, and record flagship. Playing an equally essential purpose are an wholly new framework and lightweight pattern with a 3.9-inch longer wheelbase and incomparable 20-inch wheels. The Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) active anti-roll system, that is being charity for a initial time in 911 Turbo models, increases energetic opening even more. This complement is customary apparatus in a 911 Turbo S, as is Sport Chrono Package Plus with energetic engine mounts, and Porsche Carbon Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB); all of these facilities are also accessible as options in a 911 Turbo. The result: The new 911 Turbo S shortens a path time for a North Loop of a Nürburgring to good underneath 7 and a half mins – with customary prolongation tires.

Improved Performance and Efficiency

The new engine and polished PDK delivery is partnered with a new Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel expostulate system. The turbocharged 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine with approach fuel injection produces 520 hp in a 911 Turbo and 560 hp in a S model. Porsche continues to be a usually carmaker to offer twin turbochargers with non-static turbine geometry on a gasoline engine. Power is eliminated to a drivetrain around a seven-speed twin purchase delivery (PDK), that now enables an automobile start/stop duty with engine shutoff, that activates progressing while a automobile is coming  to a stop as good as when coasting during speed. A new total thermal government complement for a turbo engine and a PDK delivery are projected to outcome in genuine universe fuel economy improvements when final U.S. EPA tag values are distributed closer to a time a automobile is on sale in a United States. Induction and engine sounds are transmitted to a newcomer cell around a orator diaphragm.

New all-wheel expostulate with electro-hydraulic control

For even faster and some-more accurate energy placement to a front and behind axles, Porsche grown a new PTM all-wheel expostulate complement with electronically tranquil and activated multi-plate coupling. The complement is versed with a new H2O cooling function, that allows for some-more strength, and therefore some-more expostulate torque to a front wheels, than a complement in a prior 911 Turbo. Simultaneously, a optimized interplay of a engine, delivery and all-wheel expostulate systems formula in poignant improvements to a acceleration capabilities of a 911 Turbo and Turbo S. The 911 Turbo with a discretionary Sport Chrono Package Plus accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds, on a approach to a tip lane speed of 196 mph. The 911 Turbo S handles a scurry to 60 mph in usually 2.9 seconds, with a tip lane speed of 198 mph.

Widest physique of all 911 cars

Visually, a twin new tip variants of a 911 lineup are set detached from other models some-more than ever. The evil expansively far-reaching behind physique panels of a new era 911 Turbo are a serve 1.1 inches wider than on a 911 Carrera 4– a fenders underline a scarcely spin surface, about a breadth of a hand, between a C-pillar and a outdoor corner of a automobile body. Other differentiating characteristics embody fake two-tone 20-inch aluminum wheels. On a 911 Turbo S they have core heart circle locks. The Turbo S is serve differentiated by new, customary full-LED headlights that underline four-point daytime using lights and camera-based high/low lamp control, that can be systematic as an choice for a 911 Turbo.

Rear circle steering quite enhances responsiveness

The introduction of behind circle steering in all turbo models immensely improves both lane pushing capability and bland opening of a twin new sports cars. The complement consists of twin electro-mechanical actuators, instead of a required control links, on a left and right behind axles. The steering angle of a behind wheels can be sundry by adult to 2.8 degrees, depending on automobile speed. At speeds adult to 31 mph, when a front wheels are turned, a complement steers a behind wheels in a conflicting direction. This indeed corresponds to a practical cutting of a wheelbase by 9.8 inches, that gives a 911 Turbo peerless opening in curves. The complement lets a automobile spin faster into corners and offers some-more energetic steering response. This noticeably simplifies maneuvering and parking.

At speeds above 50 mph, a complement steers a behind wheels together to a front wheels. This is homogeneous to a practical lengthening of a wheelbase by 19.6 inches and gives a automobile extensive directional control capability. At a same time, a steering submit by a motorist leads to significantly faster rave of parallel force during a behind axle, that responds to steering commands even some-more quickly.

Active aerodynamics urge potency and performance

Porsche grown an active aerodynamic complement on a new 911 Turbo models for a initial time. It consists of a retractable three-stage front spoiler, whose segments can be pneumatically extended, and a deployable behind wing with 3 tractable wing positions. This creates it probable to balance a aerodynamics of a 911 Turbo to perform motorist wishes for possibly optimal potency or tip energetic performance. In a opening position, all segments of a front spoiler are entirely extended, and they beget substantial down force during a front axle. Similarly, a behind wing is extended to a extent tallness with a biggest angle of attack. This also generates some-more down force during a behind axle. Dynamic opening is softened to such an border that path times during a North Loop of a Nürburgring are softened by adult to twin seconds due to this complement alone.

New interior with high-end features

The interior was totally redesigned in both 911 Turbo models, and it builds on a 911 Carrera family. The S indication is quite good equipped, charity such facilities as an disdainful interior in a black/Carrera red tone multiple and customary Sport Seats Plus with 18-way composition and memory. In addition, a chair behind shells are upholstered in leather with double tip seams and several elements in CO look. As on a prior models, a Bose® sound complement is commissioned as standard; for a initial time, a Burmester® complement is also accessible as an discretionary feature. A radar-controlled journey control system, camera-based highway pointer recognition, and speed extent approval are other new options being offered.
