With each new generation, engineers continuously produce more power after a few years of development. If an "S" is an addictive model within the lineup as it offers a few key differences from the standard car.
Turbocharging technology was advancing at a fast pace at the turn of the century. In 2002, Porsche released the X50 upgrade for the S. Larger turbochargers and a revised computer boosted horsepower from 415 to 450. Power was combined with carbon ceramic brakes, a six-disc CD changer, and machined face gauges to become the 2005 model. Only 1,500 cars were produced as the final examples of the 996 generation. The most significant benefit of the enhancements was 457 lb-ft of torque from 3,500 rpm to 5,000. This allowed for quarter-mile times in the mid to low 13-second range while competitors struggled to break into the 14s.
With the launch of the 997 for 2006, new variable geometry turbos were used to make 470 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. These are completely acceptable numbers for a performance car, so the S went on hiatus until the end of the body style. With a new 991 generation in the works, Stuttgart decided to end the 997 with a show stopper.
Production of the 997 Turbo S began just a few months after the introduction of the refreshed 997.2 Turbo model. The first production car with variable geometry turbochargers made 30 more horsepower than the base model. This model came equipped with ceramic brakes, Torque Vectoring and a novel over boost function. For a brief period, the turbos were opened to 1.2 bar instead of their normal 1.0 bar maximum pressure. Instead of five lug nuts, the wheels are center-lock, using the same mechanism found on Carrera GT and GT2 RS models.
Performance is where the car has always been incrementally better than other models. As the body style was refreshed, production of the S was on hiatus in the United States for 2015. Back with a vengeance earlier this year, the 2016 Turbo S brought a host of improvements to the lineup. All-wheel drive has been a mainstay for years, and it is the magic behind the 0-60 time, which is under 2.9 seconds. The latest 2017 uses 2.9 more PSI to create 516 lb-ft of torque and 580 horsepower. Although the S is no longer available with a manual transmission, it hasn’t been a factor for the price. Finding a pristine, used Porsche car is not an impossible task, thanks to our extensive dealer network.
The ultimate sports car is the S Cabriolet. With a powered folding soft top, it is the flagship 911 convertible. The current body style represents state-of-the-art German motoring, with the S in at an MSRP of $188,100 for the coupe and $200,400 for the convertible.
Just when you thought Stuttgart couldn’t squeeze any more power from their venerable flat-six, Porsche stunned the world. The upgraded version will come with a host of advancements, the most notable being the nice bump in power. The formerly optional Sport-Chrono Package along with LED headlights is now standard. Lane change assist and front lift assist are available options. The coupe comes equipped with 18-way adaptive sport seats, two-tone leather, Porsche Dynamic Lighting Plus and carbon fiber interior trim. By redesigning the engine’s intake along with larger turbos, delivers 553 lb-ft of torque and 580 horsepower.
There’s a reason the Porsche 911 is used as a benchmark for nearly all sports cars. On paper, a rear-engine performance car shouldn’t work, but the guys from Stuttgart have been proving everyone wrong for 50 plus years now. And for about 40 years, they’ve been doing so with the help of turbochargers. The range-topping Turbo S model gets the job done with a 3.8-liter flat six turbo good for 560 horsepower and 553 foot-pounds of twist. Decades ago, that kind of power was a surefire way to induce a notorious 911 mid-corner spin. This generation of the Turbo S offers active aero and all wheel steering. At low speeds, the rear wheels turn in the opposite direction of the front wheels to create quicker turn in, but at high speeds, the rear tires turn with the front ones to keep a tighter line. Reaching a point where they’re getting all they can from the engine by itself, don’t be shocked if 918 hybrid technologies make their way into the 911 in the very near future.
