New Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series Gets An Additional 27HP
Porsche has taken the wraps off the new 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series.
Billed as the “most powerful and unique 911 Turbo S” ever created, the special edition sports car has a Golden Yellow Metallic exterior with carbon fiber stripes on the roof and hood. Designers also installed carbon fiber side skirts and unique 20-inch central locking wheels with Golden Yellow accents.
The rear of the car has been given a modest makeover as Porsche installed a new rear apron and the rear wing from the Turbo Aerokit. Other highlights include a carbon fiber ram-air scoop and a unique exhaust system in black stainless steel.
The cabin comes nicely equipped with 18-way adjustable sports seats which are covered in perforated leather upholstery and feature Golden Yellow stripes. The color can also be seen stitched on the headrests and on the Alcantara roof liner. Rounding out the interior highlights are illuminated carbon sill plates, an individually numbered plaque, and carbon fiber trim with cooper inserts.
Power is provided by an upgraded twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six engine that produces 607 PS (599 hp / 446 kW) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to the additional 27 PS (26 hp / 19 kW), the car accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph).
To keep things under control, engineers installed ceramic brakes, rear-axle steering, and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control. The model also boasts the Sport Chrono package and the Porsche Active Suspension Management system.
The car was built to celebrate the renaming of Porsche Exclusive to Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur. That change might sound minor but production will be limited to 500 units nonetheless.
Interestingly, buyers will have the option of purchasing a matching watch from Porsche Design. The watch is made from titanium and features a black titanium carbide coating as well as a carbon dial that is finished in the actual paint used on the car.
If that hasn’t exhausted your bank account, the company will also offer an Exclusive Series luggage set which includes two hold-alls, a day bag, and a suit bag.
