making its original debut at the frankfurt international auto show 50 years ago, porsche celebrates the anniversary year of the 911 by presenting the new generation 911 turbo and turbo S. complete with new all-wheel drive, active rear axle steering and adaptive aerodynamics, the vehicles boast up to 560 horsepower from a 3.8 liter flat six twin-turbo engine – with the ‘turbo S’ handling the standard sprint to 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds. a sound symposer intensifies the driving experience – transmitting induction sounds of the turbo engine to the passenger compartment via a speaker diaphragm. power is transferred to the drive-train via the seven-speed dual clutch transmission (PDK), which now enables an auto start/stop function with engine shutoff.
The newly minted 911 Turbo will be available at the end of 2013 in the United States. Prices start at $148,300 for the Turbo, while the Turbo S comes in at US$181,100.
