The new generation of the 911, the 991-2, continues to expand its family with the arrival of the Porsche 911 Turbo 2016, Porsche 911 Turbo S 2016. Despite not having excessive news, the employment of the turbos in these members is already well known, Porsche has managed to make them better in all aspects.
The 911 Turbo and Turbo S will represent the maximum possible potential of turbocharging for the 911
In both cases, the power grows by 20 HP compared to the 911 Turbo earlier that we already had occasion to prove. This means that the Turbo now boasts 540 HP, while the Turbo S raises his power up to 580. All this without changing the engine, as it is still present the six-cylinder 3.8-liter installed in the rear.
The performance improvements, achieved thanks to a few changes in the intake, new injectors and a fuel pressure higher, in addition to the employment of a few turbos, larger, higher compression, allows the dimensions of performance rising. The 911 Turbo is capable of doing the 0 to 100 Km/h in three seconds, while your twin’s is able to reduce that data in a tenth of a second, with 2.9 seconds.
The maximum speed has also increased, amounting to 330 Km/h for the Turbo S and 320 for the Turbo, 12 and 5 kilometres per hour respectively. It is remarkable that despite being faster and more powerful Porsche to be able to approve spending less than the previous generation, 0.6 litre for each 100 miles less to be exact.
The aesthetic will continue to be particular for drives in the Turbo, although it will cost a difference between the normal S
This increased aggressiveness is accompanied by a series of dynamic improvements. In the case of the Porsche 911 Turbo we find a new chassis, more fine-tuned than the previous one. adds a new stability program with different driving modes, selectable via the rotary switch of the steering wheel, copied from that of the Porsche 918 Spyder, with four modes: Normal, Sport, Sport Plus or Individual.
in Addition to creates a new program of management of the traction, PSM. It turns out to be very similar to the DMD of BMW. To activate it, the system works in a way more sporty, disabling stability controls, although not total, these being latent to intervene whenever they consider that the situation is one of maximum risk and the loss of control is near. However, if the button is pressed PSM prolonged all this surveillance will disappear, leaving the driver with full control of the car.
Another new feature is the dynamic function of sobreporpulsión, which is most evident in sport driving (Sport mode and Sport +). When you lift slightly on the accelerator pedal, the pressure in the turbos is maintained so that when we step on the delay is just non-existent, leaving catapulted forward in a way wild.
From the beginning, you may choose the units of the hardtop and the cabrio
For its part, the Porsche 911 version Turbo S will also have these systems, but in your case integrate new solutions. There are those that say that these units will come with the active management of the suspension, plus ceramic brakes. It is as important to going fast as being able to stop in the shortest space possible. For this case also includes a lift system of the morro, and can thus save the ever-annoying speed bumps.
In terms of design, the units Turbo boast all of the changes to the new 911 Carrera. That is to say, it slightly modifies the front, integrated headlights LED, and modified the rear with a engine cover with two openings, and integrate the drivers rear 3D, copied to the Porsche Macan. Obviously drives Turbo still counted with those details that make them special, such as the side vents and the wheels of new design with a central nut only for the case of the Turbo S, and a size of 20 inches.
In the interior not seen many changes. The main of all is the change of the steering wheel, which we have already mentioned. To this is added a greater technology, the majority focused on the Porsche Communication Management. An evolution that allows to improve the connectivity with our mobile phones, as well as a digital navigation with vision of 360 of the route. Otherwise the interior remains the same.
In the interior, few changes are noticeable, except the steering wheel and the center console display
The maximum expression of the sportiness of the nueveonce, saving on the Porsche 911 GT3 and the new drive R that we have already seen and that will come soon, has a price, a high price. At the end of the month of January it is expected that the first units are already available for the ultra-wealthy customers, who may opt for the units of the coupé or cabrio from the first moment.
