porsche hangout The Porsche 911 Turbo S: A High-Performance Masterpiece

2023 sees the introduction of the facelifted 992 generation 911, and along with it the all-new Turbo S. With the entire 992 generation being turbocharged (except for the GT3 and GT3 RS), we take a look at what makes the Porsche 911 Turbo S stand out from its siblings.

Performance And Drivetrain

The Turbo S makes use of the same 3.7-liter flat-six engine as the Turbo but has been tuned to produce a staggering 640 horsepower, up from 572 in the regular Turbo. The Turbo S comes standard with all-wheel drive and Porsche’s eight-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission. Porsche claims a top speed of 205mph and a 0-60 mph time of just 2.6 seconds, but some independent journalists have come within striking distance of 2.2 seconds.

To help you stop, the Turbo S comes with Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB), with 10-piston aluminum monoblock calipers and 420mm vented brake discs in the front. In the rear, you get 4-piston aluminum monoblock calipers with 390mm vented brake discs.

Interior And Infotainment

The Turbo carries much over from the base-model 911 Carrera, but with a racier edge, such as a heated GT sports steering wheel and matte carbon fiber inlays. The front trunk easily fits two suitcases, and the rear seats can fold forward, offering you more cargo space.

From the driver’s seat, we get a reconfigurable digital gauge, brake assist, park assist, cruise control, Homelink programmable garage door opener, and Keyless go. The touchscreen radio runs Porsche’s latest software version of Connect Plus, which allows wireless connection for both Apple Carplay and Android Auto. A Bose 12 speaker premium surround sound system comes standard, but can be upgraded to a Burmester stereo.

The Porsche 911 Turbo S comes with a free trial of a SiriusXM 3-month trial and a WiFi hotspot. Porsche’s voice pilot can be activated by simply saying “Hey Porsche,” with a number of commands available.

Pricing And Availability

The 2023 Turbo S is currently available to order through Porsche. At the time of writing, the Turbo starts at $182,900 for the coupe and the cabriolet from $195,700. For the improved performance of the Turbo S prices increases to $216,100 for the coupe and $228,900.

Special Edition: Sport Classic

The Turbo S will come in one limited edition trim: the Sport Classic. You get the same engine and 640 horsepower output, but this time it’s married to a 7-speed manual and rear-wheel drive and gains a very retro ducktail spoiler: a clear reference to the legendary 1973 911 Carrera RS 2.7. The retro design continues with Fuchs-inspired alloy wheels, checkered cloth inserts on the seats and door panels, and gold badging.

You’ll notice the red in the Porsche logo is a more faded orange, reminiscent of the color used on the original Porsche logo. The Sport Classic will be limited to 1250 globally, with a price tag of $273,750.
