2020 Porsche 911 Turbo S
This is the eighth turbo model in the 911 series and has always played something of a special role. Originally it was the only turbocharged Porsche. And although there was already a Carrera then, the turbo was already
about one and a half times as powerful at twice the price. This is no different today compared to 331 kW (450 hp) for the Carrera 4S, although at an additional price of around € 90,000, it is not quite twice as expensive.
However, this still gives him a special position.
Since it already had thick jaws at the back, the widening at the back is with 20 mm less than the 45 mm at the front. The tyre dimensions front/rear do not match since a long time. So now the Turbo has in the back also
larger diameter in rims and wheels. The standard matrix light and the lights in the front do not make it visible, but the front apron, whose closability together with the front spoiler, which in principle extends in three parts,
provides complex air control.
The chassis has steel suspension, as is usual on a fast racing car, but otherwise all conceivable adjustment possibilities. Strange that you can also order this car with 'sport suspension' 10 mm lowered. It shows that the
Turbo is a little more for normal customers than for example a '4 GTS'. Nevertheless, even a Turbo needs 420 mm diagonal of the brake disks on the front axle, made of ceramic and with ten pistons. More seems almost to
Once again a bigger rear wing. It can not only extend, but also tip over. Below are the four tailpipes of the standard equipment, which mutate into two oval ones in the sporty one that can be ordered separately. It shows,
what is necessary and what is not. The engine behind it lurks 51 kW (70 hp) and 50 Nm more than the predecessor, that is something that you almost assume with a new Turbo. After all, it now has more than the double
the performance of the first one. It will be interesting to see where this will end.
