A video with the Porsche 911 Turbo S track test has been published on Youtube. At the Sachsenring, the performances are of a high standard
A classic to be renewed. The Turbo version remains the queen of the Porsche 911 range, special GT versions aside. They have two souls, they hide an adventure heart to be released on the track, when the speed can exceed limits and boundaries, but they can also be tamed in the city.
The most recent reincarnation of the top of the range, based on the 992 platform, has one advanced version of the 3.8l engine of the previous one. But with some news, such as oversized turbochargers and the new intercooler. The power goes up to 650 horses, the shot from 0 to 100 proves to be impressive, completed in just 2.7 seconds. And the passage from 0 to 200 km / h in some ways it amazes even more, they are enough less than nine seconds.
Aerodynamics designed to increase grip on the ground governing the air flows raises the maximum speed up to 330 km / h, thanks to solutions such as the movable fins in front of the radiator and the rear spoiler that adjusts electrically.
