Next-gen 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S is quickest, most dynamic to date
The Porsche 911 is the ultimate expression of the luxury automaker's brand. For the 2021 model year, the German manufacturer is taking that model to the next level with a fresh generation of enhancements.
In keeping with the new 911 body style, the 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S is bigger with an additional 45 mm up front and 20 mm in the back. The track is now 42 mm wider in the front and 10 mm wider at the rear. Its Porsche Active Suspension Management sports chassis has been lowered by 10 mm.
Porsche has given the model controlled cooling air flaps up and standard 20-inch wheels up front and a larger rear wing that sits above 21-inch wheels.
The car gets its characteristic Turbo looks from dual front light modules, LED matrix headlights with dark inserts, a pneumatically extendable front spoiler, and high-gloss black tailpipes.
The changes made to the 911 Carrera engine generation models come through in the new 911 Turbo S. It has a new six-cylinder engine with a new intake system and larger VTG turbochargers in a symmetrical layout. The car now has four intakes with a larger overall cross-section, designed to improve engine efficiency.
Porsche brags that the car is balanced enough to be used as a daily driver. It can get from zero to 200 km/h in 8.9 seconds, one second faster than its predecessor. The car comes standard with all-wheel drive.
The long list of standard equipment in the new 911 Turbo S includes a full leather interior, carbon trim with Light Silver accents, 18-way power-adjustable sport seats, a 10.9-inch infotainment screen, and GT sports steering wheel. A variety of interior appointments is available at the buyer's request.
The Sport Chrono package now offers the Porsche Track Precision app and a Bose surround sound system.
The previous iteration of the Porsche 911 Turbo S started at $190,700. The 2021 model is likely to be priced similarly.
