The Porsche 911 Turbo has always stood out among the world’s high-performance sports cars. Even the word “turbo” has been perhaps the most apt description of power and performance in automotive circles for the past 45 years. Now, following the market launch of the 911 Turbo S, comes the next generation 911 Turbo Coupe and Cabriolet even more powerful and faster than before, with both model variants dipping under the magic three-second 0–100 kilometres per hour (km/h) mark, with a time of 2.8 seconds. That is serious speed — in a serious sports car.
The new models are following a prestigious tradition of luxury and performance, since the Porsche 911 Turbo was first introduced in 1975, with each generation continuing to be the global benchmark for high-performance sports cars. It is notable that advancements by Porsche over the years mean that this latest generation of the two-plus-two seater is actually more than twice as powerful as the original Turbo. And while the 911 Turbo may have become faster, larger and more comfortable over the years, it has always maintained the fundamental characteristics that make the Porsche 911 Turbo so distinctive and so respected.
