2013 Porsche 911 Turbo line-up is the latest representation of the world’s favorite Sportscar variant

  With the observation of half a century of the Porsche 911, the Stuttgart-based Sportscar marque has revealed the latest representation of the 911: the 911 Turbo/Turbo S. Both Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S features all-wheel drive, active rear axle steering, adaptive aerodynamics, full LED headlights (the Turbo S model even has camera-based four-point daytime running lights, optional for the 911 Turbo), retractable three-stage front spoiler, three-point adjustable rear wing, lighter and longer chassis (100mm), and wider rear panels. The wide rear body panels of the latest Porsche 911 Turbo are 28 mm wider than on the 911 Carrera 4S line-up. A wider rear means the 911 Turbo/Turbo S line-up takes up larger wheels – two-tone forged 20-inch wheels with hub wheel locks. The interior is completely redesigned in both Porsche 911 Turbos, and it builds on the 911 Carrera family. The S model 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 instrument cluster inherits the 911 Carrera’s five-ring presentation and the seat backrest shells are leather upholstered with double cap seams, plus carbon-look elements. Like on the previous models, the Bose sound system is installed as standard; for the first time, a Burmester system is also available as an optional feature.
