The 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo Goes from 0-100 km/h in Less Than 3 Seconds
Following the recent introduction of the 2021 911 Turbo S, the 2021 911 Turbo Coupe and Cabriolet are now making their debut.
Thanks to an output of 580 horsepower, marking an increase of 40 horsepower over its predecessor, the new 911 Turbo accelerates from 0-100 km/h in about 2.8 seconds. The acceleration, power output, and torque (700 Nm) of the new 911 Turbo are on the level of the previous 2019 911 Turbo S.
Like the 2021 911 Turbo S, the twin-turbo boxer engine in the 911 Turbo models is mated to a standard 8-speed PDK transmission with Turbo-specific internals and calibration. The top track speed of the new 911 Turbo models is 320 km/h.
Like the recently introduced 2021 911 Turbo S, the 6-cylinder boxer engine in the new 911 Turbo has a displacement of 3.8 liters, and now features symmetrical VTG turbochargers with electrically controlled bypass valves. In conjunction with the redesigned charge air cooling system and the use of piezo fuel injectors, this improves throttle response, performance, torque delivery, and the free revving nature of the engine. Complementing the increase in power, the chassis has been tuned to offer an even greater level of performance.
The 911 Turbo adds a wider front and rear track allowing it to fit wider (255/35 R 20 front, and 315/30 R 21 rear) tires. The brakes are now larger while all-wheel drive with rear-axle steering is standard.
A Lightweight package is also available which reduces the curb weight by around 30 kilograms. These include the deletion of the rear seats and reduced sound insulation.
For the Philippine market, normally the 911 Turbo isn’t normally offered. Given the small price disparity between this and the Turbo S models, distributor PGA Cars normally offers just the Turbo S for the local line-up. However, for interested customers, the 911 Turbo may be ordered specially.
