The new Porsche 911 Turbo
2021 911 Turbo Coupé and Cabriolet with new options and considerably increased power
Atlanta. Since its introduction over 45 years ago, the Porsche 911 Turbo has balanced everyday usability with exhilarating performance.
After the recent introduction of the 2021 911 Turbo S, the 2021 911 Turbo Coupé and Cabriolet are making their debut.
With 572 hp (427 kW) of power, an increase of 32 hp over its predecessor, the new 911 Turbo accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds (0.2 seconds faster than before) while the new 911 Turbo Cabriolet takes 2.8 seconds (also 0.2 seconds faster) The acceleration, power and torque (553 lb-ft) of the new 911 Turbo are at the level of the previous 911 Turbo S .
Like the 2021 911 Turbo S, the twin turbo boxer engine of the 911 Turbo models is mated to a standard eight-speed PDK transmission with internal and Turbo-specific calibration. The top speed of the new 911 Turbo models is 198 mph. New options such as a sporty and lightweight package, a sport suspension with lower ride height and a sport exhaust system, introduced for the 911 Turbo S, are also available for the 911 Turbo for the first time, offering even higher level of personalization than ever before.
The 2021 911 Turbo models follow prestigious traces: the 911 Turbo has been the ultimate crossroads of performance and luxury within the 911 model range since 1975. The latest generation of 911 Turbo is more than twice as powerful as the 930 Original turbo, which included a three-liter six-cylinder boxer engine, a single turbocharger and up to 260 hp, depending on the market.
Like the recently introduced 2021 911 Turbo S, the new 911 Turbo’s six-cylinder boxer engine has a displacement of 3,745 cc and now has symmetrical VTG turbochargers with electrically operated bypass valves. Combined with the redesigned charge air cooling system and the use of piezo injectors, this improves the throttle response, performance, torque and free-range nature of the engine. In Turbo models, this engine develops 572 hp. Complementing the increase in power, the chassis has been tuned to offer an even higher level of performance.
By adopting the changes implemented on the new 911 Turbo S earlier this year, the steering response and precision on the new 911 Turbo models have been further improved with an additional front track width of 1.65 inches and the new 255/35 20-inch tires (up from 245/35 previously).
Also shared with the 2021 911 Turbo S, the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive system in the 911 Turbo is able to transfer even more power to the front wheels than before.
Rear axle traction, which comes standard with rear axle steering, is further increased by 0.39 inches of additional track width compared to the last 911 Turbo, as well as 315/30 tires on 21 inch wheels (305/30 R 20 previously). The overhauled brake system is even larger than on the last 911 Turbo and can be recognized by the red fixed calipers. The front cast iron brake discs are now 408 millimeters in diameter (28 mm longer than the previous 911 Turbo) and 36 millimeters thick (plus 2 mm). The rear axle has 380 mm brake discs with a thickness of 30 mm. Porsche Ceramic Composite (PCCB) brakes, standard on the 911 Turbo S, with 10-piston front calipers are available as an option.
A sports exhaust system introduced on the 921 Turbo S 2021 is also available as an option for the 911 Turbo for the very first time. Two different suspension options are also new: while the standard PASM suspension offers a greater gap between agility and driving comfort than before, the PASM Sport electronically controlled suspension particularly performance-oriented with a driving height 0.39 inch (10 mm) lower than standard The suspension takes even more advantage of the agility of the new 911 Turbo with a configuration designed to further improve driving dynamics. Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), which uses active anti-roll stabilization, is available as an option for the 911 Turbo models.
The muscular design of the 911 Turbo reflects the significant increase in power and performance of the new generation. Shared with the 2021 911 Turbo S, the body of the new 911 Turbo models is 1.8 inches wider than the predecessor on the front fenders to adapt to the increase in track width and tire size by compared to the previous model. The new front luggage compartment lid with a center recess emphasizes the performance-oriented character. LED headlights with PDLS Plus are fitted as standard. On the rear axle, the bodywork is now 0.78 inches wider than the previous generation 911 Turbo (991), also to accommodate a wider track and tires.
Other distinguishing features of the new 911 Turbo are improved adaptive aerodynamics with controlled front cooling air flaps, a larger active front spoiler and the significantly increased size of the active rear spoiler. The air inlets on the rear side panels, characteristic of the 911 Turbo, now draw in process air rather than cooling air. The charge air coolers are now positioned directly in the airflow under the rear cover. The continuous light bar with LED tail lights as well as the new rear louver grille with silver trim strips complete the rear design.
The performance-oriented appearance and character of the vehicle can be further enhanced by the light package and optional sports package. The lightweight coupe package reduces vehicle weight by approximately 66 pounds. Full bucket seats, elimination of rear seats and reduction of sound insulation contribute to weight savings and allow the exhaust note to enter the cabin more intensely. The Sport package includes all the elements of the SportDesign package as well as additional applications in black, carbon fiber elements and transparent tail lights with an exclusive design.
The basic elements of the interior of the 911 Turbo correspond to those of the current 911 Carrera models with Porsche Advanced Cockpit and Direct Touch Control. The 10.9-inch central Porsche Communication Management (PCM) display can be used quickly. The full list of standard equipment includes sport seats with 14 electric adjustments, the Sport Chrono package, a GT Sport steering wheel with paddle shifters and mode selector, as well as the BOSE® surround sound system. Many options are available, including Porsche InnoDrive with adaptive cruise control, Lane Keep Assist with traffic sign recognition, Night Vision Assist, Surround View and Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System.
The 2021 911 Turbo models are available to order now and are expected to arrive at US dealerships in early 2021. The MSRP is $ 170,800 for the 911 Turbo Coupé and $ 183,600 for the 911 Turbo Cabriolet, both without count delivery, processing and handling fees of $ 1,350.
