The 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S Goes from 0-100 km/h in Just 2.7 Seconds


One thing you can expect with Porsche is the continuous evolution in their cars. Case in point is the latest 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S—a sportscar that now packs enough grunt to run against the world’s best supercars.

Packing a new 3.8-liter flat-6 engine with two variable geometry turbos, the 911 Turbo S now has 650 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque—an increase of 70 horsepower and 50 Nm from before. Mated to a specific 8-speed dual clutch transmission, it cuts its sprint to the century mark to just 2.7 seconds (0.2 seconds faster), while the 200 km/h mark arrives in just 8.9 seconds—a full second than before.



Engineers focused on giving the 3.8-liter flat-6 a redesigned cooling system. The 911 Turbo S now has four intakes with a larger cross section, and yet, lower drag resistance from before. Apart from this, Porsche has fitted larger turbochargers with electrically adjustable wastegate flaps.

Naturally, the more powerful motor necessitates changes to its handling and for 2021, the standard Porsche Active Suspension Management can now transfer more torque (500 Nm) to the front wheels, while also fine-tuning things such as roll stability, road holding steering behavior, and more.

Setting the 911 Turbo S apart from the “regular 911 Turbo,” this one has a wider body—45 mm at the front and 20 mm at the back. Moreover, the track has been widened by 42 mm at the front and 10 mm at the back. Adaptive aerodynamics, including a larger rear wing provide more downforce. The standard tires are 20 inches in front (255/35) and 21 inches at the back (315/30).



Inside, the 911 Turbo S features a full leather interior with carbon trim as standard. The seats themselves are characterized with stitching that pays homage to the first 911 Turbo (type 930). Other features include a sports steering wheel, a track app, and a Bose sound system.

Now, if you needed to ask, the 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S will be sold first in its home market of Germany, where it’ll carry a price tag of 218,181 Euros or around P 12.31 million.
