Just Announced | The 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S

911 Turbo S und 911 Turbo S Cabriolet

Porsche has just revealed the evolution of the 911 series in the 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S. The two new models will be revealed in the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this coming January. The 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo’s 3.8-L twin-turbo six-cylinder engine develops 540HP, 20HP more than its predecessor. The Turbo S goes even further by hitting 580HP and having a 7,200 rpm redline (instead of 7,000 rpm).

The new 911’s also sport sharper design, with redesigned front ends and rear fascia. They also borrow the 911 Carrera’s door handles and three-dimensional rear lights, adding to a sleeker look. As in previous incarnations, the Turbo and Turbo S can be easily distinguished by looking at the exhausts – they’re in high gloss chrome on the Turbo, and black chrome with stainless steel tips on the Turbo S.

The 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo series also feature enhanced features, including the Sport Chrono Package and its GT Sport steering wheel. The wheel has a mode switch that lets drivers choose between Normal, Sport, Sport Plus, or Individual (customized) modes. The Porsche Stability Management (PSM) system also introduces a new Sport Mode, which when activated shifts its intervention threshold higher. If you’re really feeling the need for speed, you can also deactivate the system completely.

The 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S will hit dealers on April 2016, and will come in both coupe and convertible body styles. The 911 Turbo’s base MSRP is US$159,200 ($171,500 if convertible), while the Turbo S’s price tag is pegged at US$188,100 ($200,400 if convertible). Stay tuned for the official reveal next month.
