The high-performance version of Porsche’s flagship sports car boasted impressive numbers, from its horsepower figures to its acceleration times. Under the Turbo’s characteristic rear spoiler, lurks the car’s most important asset: a 3.8-litre turbocharged six-cylinder engine. In base level Turbo models, this powerplant produces a whopping 520bhp; however, the high-performance Turbo S boosts power to an even more exciting 560bhp. Although the new 911 Turbo’s power figures were impressive, its acceleration numbers were even more jaw-dropping. Porsche claimed the Turbo S could reach 60 mph in less than three seconds and obtain a top speed of 198 mph. The Turbo S models were capable of such impressive acceleration thanks in part to all-wheel drive and Porsche’s lightning quick PDK automatic transmission. Beyond the engine, the new 911 Turbo also boasted major styling changes compared to the outgoing models, since it is based on the all-new 991 model 911, which debuted the previous year. One of the more notable differences over earlier Turbos is the revised side air intakes. A 911 Turbo hallmark since 2001, the new Turbo’s intakes were enlarged for better airflow. Turbo models also offered a special front bumper, a fixed rear wing, and unique wheels.
This stunning Porsche was first registered on 16th December 2014 and has covered 21,831 miles since. The imposing white exterior is complemented by black leather interior with red stitching. The black wheels and yellow brake calipers along with the curves of the Turbo body make this aesthetically a very handsome vehicle. Start the engine, engage drive and this really is a special car in every way. With a superb note from the exhaust, supreme handling and performance that has to be experienced it is little wonder these limited-edition Porsches are in high demand. The cabin area of this 911 is superb with fabulous ergonomics, exceedingly comfortable seats and easy to read dials. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 28th August 2021 together with the original handbooks. This limited edition Porsche Turbo S was manufactured to mark the 40th anniversary of the first 911 Turbo to hit the showrooms and is as thrilling to drive as it is to look at.
