For the past 45 years, the Porsche 911 Turbo has been one of the most celebrated sports cars in the world. A quintessential high-performance sports car that can easily double as an everyday driver, the 911 Turbo steals hearts just as quickly as it drives.
Following the market launch of the Porsche 911 Turbo S, the next generation 911 Turbo Coupé and Cabriolet are here, and they are better than ever.
The all new 911 Turbo is now more muscular than ever. The body has been widened to 1,840 mm (a 45 mm increase) at the front wheels to accommodate the new chassis. At the rear end, the body has also been visibly widened, and now features a continuous light bar with its LED tail lights. The new hood is framed by LED lights as well.
The new 911 Turbos are fitted with a six-cylinder boxer engine, paired off with an eight speed automatic transmission that makes 572 hp and 750 Nm of torque. The cars can reach 0-100 kph in just 2.8 seconds, and achieve a top speed of up to 320 kph.
The all new Porsche 911 Turbo models come with Porsche Advanced Cockpit and Direct Touch Control. There is a 10.9 inch infotainment system, fully electrically controlled 14-way sports seats, GT sports steering wheel with shift paddles, and multi-function and mode switches, as well as the powerful BOSE Surround Sound System.
Optional equipment include: 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.
The overall look and performance of the vehicle can be upgraded with the optional Lightweight Design and Sports packages. The Lightweight Design package for the Coupé reduces the vehicle’s weight by 30 kilograms, making it more nimble and agile. This is made possible by replacing the standard power-controlled seats with lightweight full-bucket seats, as well as the omission of the rear seats and the fitting of less insulation, which also means that drivers can enjoy the sound of the engine even more directly.
On the other hand, the Sports package features the 911 Turbo Sport Design package as well as additional features in Black and in Carbon, along with Exclusive Design taillights.
In the Philippines, we have the Porsche 911 for sale, starting at Php 7.4 million for the base model variant.
