Ahead of their world debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January, Porsche has taken the wraps off the new 2017 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S. The top-of-the-line 911 models will be available in both coupe and convertible body styles and are equipped with engines offering 20 horsepower more than before, a sharper design, and enhanced features. The 3.8 liter twin-turbo six-cylinder engine powering the 911 Turbo now develops 540 horsepower, while the 911 Turbo S now makes 580 hp thanks to new turbochargers.
The 911 Turbo S Coupe accelerates from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds, making it 0.1 seconds faster than its predecessor; its top track speed of 205 miles per hour has increased by 7 miles per hour. The 911 Turbo reaches 60 miles per hour from standstill in 2.9 seconds, and its top track speed is 198 miles per hour – 2 miles per hour faster than the previous model.
In the United States, the new generation of Porsche 911 Turbo will reach dealers in April 2016. Base MSRP for the 911 Turbo is $159,200 and base MSRP for the 911 Turbo S is $188,100.
