Hang onto your bonnets, Sunday driving just took a turn toward the fast lane with the new 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S! These models are built in celebration of 40 years of doing what only Porsche can do – which is to create power, performance and style that never goes out of style. The difficult part is in choosing whether to drive the Turbo or Turbo S home as the next new family member.
The 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S have rear mounted turbocharged 3.8 liter flat six engines. The turbos are twin variable turbine geometry to fully optimize the capabilities. What this gives you for the straight turbo is a lightning fast is 520 horsepower. For an idea, you’ll get from 0 to 60 in just 3.2 seconds. What’s faster than lightning? Apparently the Turbo S edition. This super coupe ramps up the horses to 560, will get you from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds and you’ll happily cruise the highways and byways at around 198 miles per hour, although we suggest you don’t try that at home. Isn’t it nice to know you can if you want to though?
With all the power, handling is not just something nice to talk about, it’s a requirement and both the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S handle the roadways as if Porsche also built the roads just for these new models. They feature a new all wheel drive system with rear wheel steering. They also include a Porsche Traction Management AWD feature, electronically controlled and activated multi plate coupling and is water cooled. Of course all the other Porsche goodies for the interior, exterior and what goes under the hood are included with the highest quality materials.
You can expect to pay $148,300 for the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo and $181,100 for the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S. Both of these also have an additional $950 destination fee and available options which will affect the pricing. You can expect to see them at your premiere Porsche dealership at the end of this year.
