Porsche will be introducing a more potent version of the 911 in the form of the Turbo S at the Geneva auto show in March 2010.
The 911 Turbo S is injected with 30bhp over the standard 911 Turbo, bringing the horsepower up to 530bhp while torque stays put at 700Nm (516 lb-ft) including the overboost, 650Nm (479 lb-ft) without. Top speed is up just slightly by 3km/h at 315km/h. Fuel consumption remains the same as the standard Turbo at 11.4 liters/100 km, which is quite commendable for such performance.
All the options available on the 911 Turbo will be standard on the Turbo S. The 911 Turbo S will be equipped with Porsche's 7-speed PDK (double-clutch) transmission, Porsche traction management (PTM) for the all-wheel drive system, as well as Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV), which includes a differential lock for the rear axle. Also part of the standard package is the Launch Control and Sport Chrono Package that help accelerate this 911 Turbo S from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds.
Other standard features include 19-inch wheels in an RS Spyder design and a two-tone leather finish in either Black/Crema or Black/Titanium Blue combination. The Turbo S will be available in both cabriolet and coupe body-styles, and is set to reach dealerships in Europe starting May 2010. Perhaps, we may see a local launch in Singapore before 2010 is out. Stay tuned!
