A quintessential high performer

Aziz Idris

The Porsche 911 Turbo has been the quintessential high-performance sports car with everyday usability for the past 45 years.

Following the market launch of the 911 Turbo S, the next generation 911 Turbo Coupé and Cabriolet are now being introduced – even more powerful, faster and embodies individuality.

The iconic 911 Turbo Coupe and 911 Turbo Cabriolet are now available for order from QAF Eurokars Sdn Bhd (member of QAF Group) – the exclusive importer of Porsche vehicles and parts in Brunei Darussalam.

The new sports car follows the prestigious footsteps of the 911 Turbo that has been synonymous with luxury and performance since 1975.

Each generation has continued to live up to the claim of being a global benchmark for high-performance sports cars. The 911 Turbo combines sportiness with everyday usability, emotive dynamism with reliability and exhilarating performance with efficiency.

The latest generation of the two-plus-two seater is more than twice as powerful as the original Turbo, powered by a three-litre, single-turbocharged, 260 PS flat-six. While the 911 Turbo may have become faster, larger and more comfortable over the years, it has always retained its fundamental characteristics.

The next-gen 911 will be equipped with their 427 kW (580 PS) engines – 30 kW (40 PS) more than their predecessors – both model variants dip under the magic three seconds 0-100 km/h mark with a time of 2.8 seconds (0.2 seconds faster).

It can produce up to 750-newton metres of torque (up 40 Nm), now without an overboost time limit, making quick sprints even more spontaneous and effortless.

Acceleration, power output and torque of the new 911 Turbo, therefore, all match those of the previous generation 911 Turbo S.

Power transmission is performed by an eight-speed PDK gearbox with a Turbo-specific set-up while its top speed remains unchanged at 320km/h.

Options such as the Sports and Lightweight Design packages, sports chassis and sports exhaust system are available for the 911 Turbo for the first time.

As a result, customers will be able to adapt their vehicle more towards their individual tastes.

The design of the 911 Turbo is more muscular. The body has been widened by 45mm to 1,840mm at the front wheels to accommodate the new chassis, while the new bonnet’s striking swage line underlines the car’s sporty character.

Other distinguishing features of the new 911 Turbo are its enhanced adaptive aerodynamics which includes the air intakes on the rear side panels.

The centre screen of the PCM is now 10.9 inches and can be operated quickly and without distraction thanks to its new architecture. Numerous options are available for further personalisation.
