Porsche 911 Turbo S
Great eminence does not come from making grand statements. Sometimes a single appearance suffices. For the 911 Turbo, this occurred at the 1974 Paris motor show. This vehicle’s power and presence proved to be a sensation.
In times of an oil crisis and automotive restraint, Porsche showed uncompromising attitude. Based on a systematic approach. With one of the first series-production sports cars to be given a turbocharger. The world held its breath. And does so whenever a new 911 Turbo makes its début.
With the latest 911 Turbo, too, our engineers have succeeded in staying true to its resolute lineage of development – and yet simultaneously reinventing it.
Porsche 911 Turbo S Concepts
The results? A design that is unmistakable, just as it was 40 years ago. Details that are as precise as they are powerful. Performance that can be given a further boost by adding an ‘S’ to the rear. And pioneering technologies, such as Connect Plus, with which the 911 Turbo explores new avenues in the digital world as well.
Essentially, it’s a sports car. But not just any sports car. For us, it will always be the sports car. The perfect expression of our brand and philosophy. Supreme performance, combined with intelligent efficiency.
And so it still holds true that the 911 Turbo is no end in itself. It is an idea that embodies one thing above all else: longevity. For us, strong performance in the future is just as important as here in the now. Past, present, future: the 911 Turbo is a vehicle with looks that leave us speechless. Quickening the pulse of time. Without gimmickry. Without taking over the limelight. Without needing to be loud.
The fact remains that many may shake the throne, but there can only be one upon it.
Porsche Stability Management (PSM)
PSM is an automatic control system for stabilisation when driving at the limits of performance. Under acceleration on wet or low-grip road surfaces, PSM improves traction using the automatic brake differential (ABD) and anti-slip regulation (ASR). For a high level of stability and safety combined with exceptional agility.
In SPORT mode, the trigger threshold for PSM is raised. Agility is perceptibly enhanced when braking for corners with PSM, allowing very sporty braking and exit acceleration. For maximum dexterity, PSM can be set to standby. Although, for safety, it’s still there in the background.
Light system- LED main headlights
The inner workings of the LED headlights fitted as standard consist of two housings arranged at different levels. Daytime running lights are integrated into each headlight in the form of four LED spots encircled by a light ring.
The effect? Resembling daylight, the LED light is very bright, thus ensuring excellent illumination of the road ahead. Thanks to optimised close-range, side and distance lighting and the daylight-like colouring, your eyes become tired less quickly than with other systems.
Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) and Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+)
PDLS, the dynamic cornering light, swivels the main headlights towards the inside of a bend according to the steering angle and driving speed.
On the 911 Turbo S models, the LED main headlights are combined with PDLS+. In addition to all of the functions provided by PDLS, PDLS+ has dynamic main beam control. It is activated at speeds in excess of 60 km/h and identifies the lights of the car in front as well as oncoming vehicles. The range of the light cone can then be individually adapted to the current situation.
Airbags and Porsche Side Impact Protection System (POSIP)
The full-size airbags for the driver and front passenger inflate in two stages depending on the severity and type of accident. In less serious accidents, the airbags are only partially inflated.
The Porsche Side Impact Protection System (POSIP) comprises side impact protection elements in the doors and two airbags on each side: an integral thorax airbag is located in the seat side bolsters, while the door panels each contain a head air-bag ensuring excellent protection in the event of a side impact
