It hasn't been that long since the revised version of the 997 Turbo was revealed, but here we are - a few months later - and Porsche have produced another variant of the Turbo, the Turbo S. The Turbo S comes with a 30hp advantage over the normal Turbo, giving a total of 530hp and a potent 513 lb ft of torque from its 3.8l twin turbo flat six. The Turbo S is only available with Porsche's latest 7 speed double-clutch gearbox, PDK, and is able to sprint from 0-60mph in 3.3 sec and onto a top speed of 315 km/h (195 mph). Despite the increse in perfomance, Porsche is also claiming no change in the fuel economy figures over the standard Turbo, 11.4 litres for every 100 kilometres (24.8 mpg).
The Turbo S benefits from having carbon ceramic brakes, Porsche's Traction Management system (PTM) which monitors proper distribution of power and traction through all four wheels, dynamic engine mounts, a mechanical differential lock on the rear axle, and 19 inch RS design wheels with central locking.
The Turbo S will be available at dealerships as of May 2010, with a price tag of 173,241 Euros for the coupe version, and 184,546 Euros for the cabriolet version.
