|Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP) has added the latest Porsche 911 Turbo S to its iconic variant’s portfolio for the domestic Sports Performance market. In conjunction with the variant’s 50th anniversary, the Turbo S stands out as one of the fastest 911s yet, which first debut some 40 years ago at the ’74 Frankfurt Motor show.|
At a glance, the 911 Turbo S is wider than the Carrera 4 line-up; exactly 28mm. The new sports car has a 100 mm longer wheelbase as well. It features a nearly level surface, about the width of a hand, between the C-pillar and the outer edge of the car body. Other differentiating characteristics include two-tone forged 20-inch wheels and hub wheel locks, as well as new full-LED headlights with four-point DRL (daytime running lights) and camera-based beam control.
Porsche 911 Turbo S gets Adaptive Aerodynamics for the first time
The Porsche 911 Turbo S becomes the first sports car to receive Adaptive aerodynamics in its quest for aero. perfection. Thanks to a combination of an extendable front spoiler and adjustable rear wing, the Turbo S fulfills the driver’s calls swifter, be it on track or regular road; daily or spirited drives.
The interior was completely redesigned in both 911 Turbos, and it builds on the 911 Carrera range. The S variant is particularly well equipped, offering such features as an exclusive interior in a black/carrera red color combination and sport seats plus with 18-way adjustment and memory. In addition, the seat backrest shells are leather upholstered with double cap seams and various elements in carbon look. For intrinsic sound and entertainment, the 911 Turbo S takes on a Bose sound system. An owner can up-the-ante in the 911 Turbo with an optional Burmester system, along with a host of optional items such as, radar-controlled cruise control system, camera-based road sign recognition and speed limit recognition.
An extra able 3.8-liter 6-cylinder powerplant, paired to a 7-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission, powers the sports car up to 560 hp at 6,000 – 6,500 rpm, and torque is raised to 660 Nm at 1,950 – 5,000 rpm or 710 Nm at 2,100 – 4,250 rpm (with Sport Plus package). That said, the 911 Turbo S does a 0 – 100 km/h dash in just 3.1 seconds and achieves a top speed of 318 km/h. Porsche continues to be the only marque to offer two turbochargers with variable turbine geometry for a petrol engine. Together with the new thermal management system for the turbo engine and the PDK transmission, fuel efficiency technologies have reduced NEDC fuel consumption by up to 16 per cent to 9.7 l/100 km.
For an even faster and more precise power distribution to the two axles, Porsche developed a new all-wheel drive system (PTM) with electronically controlled and activated multi-plate coupling. The system is equipped with a new water cooling function, so that it can direct even more drive torque to the front wheels if necessary. An important driving assist system included in the 911 Turbo S consist of the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) active anti-roll system, the first time for this line-up. The Sport Chrono Package Plus with dynamic engine mounts and Ceramic brakes are available options to spruce up your 911 Turbo/S.
