It’s Quicker Than the Old Turbo S!
On schedule, the latest variant of the 992 generation Porsche 911 is the new Porsche 911 Turbo 2021. Note that we have not pasted an “S” at the end of this nameplate, however. Yes, if the heartbreaking, heartbreaking and revolutionary Porsche 911 Turbo S 2021 is too rich for your blood, the “basic” Turbo and Turbo Cabriolet are there to bridge the gap between the future Carrera GTS 992 series and the Turbo S . top of the line
Since the hierarchy of modern models of the 997 generation Porsche 911 is more or less cemented, there is no surprise with the new Porsche 911 Turbo 2021, but that does not mean that you should be less excited. Compared to the Turbo S, the Turbo is indeed softer, slower, less powerful, less expensive and generally less efficient, but this austere language is a bit misleading. The new Porsche 911 Turbo 2021 is absolutely, positively, a supercar.
Porsche 911 Turbo 2021: more power, absolutely
Like the Turbo S, power comes from a 3.8-liter six-cylinder flat developing 572 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, or 32 hp and 67 lb-ft compared to the previous 991.2 Turbo , and matched the 991.2 Turbo S. The new 911 Turbo is down 68 horsepower and 37 lb-ft compared to the 2021 992 Turbo S, but just like the S, gear changes are made exclusively by the PDK automatic transmission prematurely fast eight-speed dual-clutch from Porsche.
Even if you don’t have the green tickets for the S, you can sleep well knowing that you can choose all these 991.2 Turbo S models that you will find parked in the golf course, like the new 2.7 seconds zero on the new Porsche 911 Turbo 2021- coupe at 60 mph reduces the time by 0.2 seconds compared to the sprint of the 991.2 Turbo and by 0.1 seconds compared to the 991.2 Turbo S. (We tested the old Turbo S at 60 mph in 2.5 seconds, so the Porsche figure is cautious with this latest Turbo estimate.) Get the droptop convertible, and 60 mph is shipped in 2.8 seconds. Of course, being Porsche, expect these times to drop when independent testing begins. For those who live in the homeland of Turbo and have access to the highway, the top speed is 198 mph.
Porsche 911 Turbo 2021: under the skin
Again, just because the new Porsche 911 Turbo 2021 doesn’t match the Turbo S in pure performance, don’t think of it as anything other than a super-speed nebula capsule. To complement the enormous power, the 992 Turbo contains a bunch of gear and speed bonuses, like the standard rear steering and an aerodynamic configuration similar to that of the Turbo S. There is also a bunch of optional extras, including included, including the Turbo S carbon-ceramic brakes, a new Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) sport suspension, offering more aggressive damping and tuning and a 0.4-inch drop from the standard PASM configuration – which , we must emphasize once again, is always of an absurd capacity. Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) with active anti-roll stabilization is also available.
There’s also a new optional sports exhaust system – the first of its kind on a non-S Turbo – as well as a new lightweight package and a sports package, just like those found on the Turbo S. The lightweight package reduces 66 pounds by removing the rear seats, replacing the front seats with bucket seats and shaving off the sound insulation. Unfortunately, the Sport pack adds nothing other than a few aesthetic touches, relying mainly on the trim and the garlands of the existing SportDesign kit. Click on the box next to the Sport set, then, and your new Porsche 911 Turbo 2021 arrives with SportDesign tips and an additional visual touch like black buttons, carbon fiber elements and transparent tail lights with exclusive design .
Porsche 911 Turbo 2021: even more, it’s great
Elsewhere, the new Porsche 911 Turbo 2021 plays pretty much the same game as the Turbo S and, by extension, the rest of the 992 line. There are a good number of standard features that include the popular Sport Chrono package, a GT Sport steering wheel, 10.9-inch central PCM display and Bose sound system. Being Porsche, there is a long list of options to go through, including adaptive cruise control, night vision assistance, lane keeping assistance and enhanced Burmester audio.
If all this sounds good and dandy, be prepared to pay generously for this privilege. The new Porsche 911 Turbo 2021 coupe starts at $ 172,150, while the Cabriolet will set you back $ 184,950; both prices are $ 32,700 less than the coupe and cabin Porsche Turbo S 2021.
