50 years ago, the 911 made its debut at the Frankfurt International Auto Show and just ten years later, the first 911 Turbo prototype was born. Now, on its 40th Anniversary, Porsche is now presenting the next generation 911 Turbo and Turbo S. Porsche introduces a new all-wheel drive system which is equipped with a new water cooling function, so that it can direct even more drive torque to the front wheels if necessary.
Active rear axle steering system consists of two electro-mechanical actuators instead of the conventional control arms on the left and right of the rear axle. This gives the 911 Turbo unrivalled performance in bends. The system lets the car turn faster into the bend and offers more dynamic steering response. Adaptive aerodynamics includes a retractable three-stage front spoiler, whose segments can be pneumatically extended, and a deployable rear wing with three adjustable wing positions. This makes it possible to tune the aerodynamics of the 911 Turbo
The interior was completely redesigned in both 911 Turbo models, and it builds on the 911 Carrera’s current brand of ergonomics. The S model is particularly well equipped, offering such features as an exclusive interior in a black/Carrera red color combination and adaptive sport seats plus with 18-way adjustment and memory functions. In addition, the seat backrest shells are leather upholstered with double cap seams and various elements in carbon look. Full-LED headlights, a radar-controlled cruise control system, camera-based road sign recognition and speed limit recognition are other new options are also being offered. The new Porsche 911 Turbo models promise to be more efficient and powerful than any of their predecessors. We look forward to the grand entrance of the grandest of Porsches.
