Turbo Tuesday – Porsche reveals new flagship 911s

Since Porsche announced that the standard 911 would from now on be turbocharged, we wondered if the news would seal the fate of the flagship 911 Turbo. However, the marque has revealed its new Turbo and Turbo S models, cementing their place at the top of the range…

Though the new Porsche 911 Turbo models boast revised bodywork, to us they look largely similar to the previous car, which is no bad thing. Power is up by 20bhp, raising the Turbo to 532bhp and the Turbo S to 573bhp, while a new ‘Sport Response’ button on the wheel, allowing 20 seconds of optimal acceleration, should make light work of overtaking. 

A host of other dynamic upgrades that include wider wheels and revised stability control should ensure that the 911 Turbo is still the most exhilarating 911 to drive. Prices start from £126,925 for the 911 Turbo and £145,773 for the Turbo S. Deliveries will commence in January 2016, after the cars’ debut at the Detroit Motor Show.
