Porsche introduces the next generation 911 Turbo Coupe and Cabriolet, following the market launch of the 911 Turbo S.

17 Jul 2020 | International News : Germany

The Porsche 911 Turbo has been the quintessential high-performance sports car with everyday usability for the past 45 years. Following the market launch of the 911 Turbo S, the next generation 911 Turbo Coupe and Cabriolet are now being introduced - even more powerful, even faster and even more individual.

Thanks to their 573bhp engines (40bhp more than their predecessors) both model variants dip under the magic three second zero to 100km/h mark with a 0.2 seconds faster time of 2.8 seconds than their predecessors. 750Nm of torque, up by 40Nm, now without an overboost time limit, make quick sprints even more spontaneous and effortless.

Each generation of the 911 Turbo has continued to live up to the claim of being a global benchmark
Acceleration, power output and torque of the new 911 Turbo therefore all match those of the previous generation 911 Turbo S. Power transmission is performed by an eight-speed PDK gearbox with a Turbo-specific set-up while top speed remains unchanged at 320km/h.

Options such as the Sports and Lightweight Design packages, sports chassis and sports exhaust system are available for the 911 Turbo for the first time. As a result, customers will be able to adapt their vehicle even more to their individual tastes.

The new 911 Turbo's 3.7-litre six-cylinder boxer engine now features symmetrical VTG turbochargers with electrically controlled bypass valves. In conjunction with its redesigned charge air cooling system and the use of piezo injectors, this improves responsiveness, performance, torque characteristics and its ability to rev freely. The chassis and body have become wider. The front axle now steers even more precisely thanks to an additional 42mm of front track width and new 20-inch 255/35 tyres.

The continuous light bar with its LED tail lights, as well as the new louvred rear lid grille with silver trim strips, round off the design of the rear of the car
The active all wheel control PTM is now able to transfer even more power to the front wheels while traction at the actively steered rear axle is increased by a 10mm-wider track as well as 315/30 tyres on 21-inch wheels - one inch more than on the front axle.

The revamped braking system is even more powerful and can be recognised by its red fixed callipers that are fitted as stand-ard. The grey cast iron brake discs at the front now measure 408mm in diameter and are 36mm thick.

The rear axle features 30mm-thick brake discs with a diameter of 380mm. The design of the 911 Turbo has become even more muscular. The body has been widened by 45mm to 1,840mm at the front wheels to accommodate the new chassis, while the new bonnet's striking swage line underlines the car's sporty character. LED head lights with PDLS Plus illuminate the road as standard. At the rear axle, the body is widened by 20mm to exactly 1,900mm wide.

The centre screen of the Porsche Communication Management is now 10.9-inches, and can be operated without distraction thanks to its new architecture
Other distinguishing features of the new 911 Turbo are its enhanced adaptive aerodynamics, which feature electronically controlled cooling air flaps at the front, its larger active front spoiler and significantly larger variable rear spoiler.

The air intakes on the rear side panels, so characteristic of the 911 Turbo, now draw in process air rather than the cooling air they did before, while the charge air coolers are now positioned directly in the air flow under the rear lid.

The basic elements of the modern interior correspond to those of the 911 Carrera models with Porsche Advanced Cockpit and Direct Touch Control. The particularly high-quality and extensive equipment list includes fully electrically controlled 14-way sports seats, the Sport Chrono package, a GT sports steering wheel with shift paddles, multifunction and mode switches as well as the powerful BOSE Surround Sound System.

Numerous options are available for further personalisation, including Porsche InnoDrive with adaptive cruise control, Lane Keeping Assist with road sign recognition, Night Vision Assist, Surround View and the Burmester High-End Surround Sound System.
