The New Porsche 911 Turbo Celebrates the Rubin Jubilee
|   Thursday, May 09, 2013
To celebrate, as it would be appropriate, the 4 decades that passed since the first-generation 911 Turbo came to be, Porsche prepared for the fans a completely new Turbo model, based on the 991 series.

The most powerful and fastest 911 Turbo in history will be offered in two versions of power: 520 hp or 560 hp exclusively in the company of a PDK dual-clutch seven-speed box, with paddles and coasting function.

Porsche does not give up on tradition for any of the top 911 Turbo.
The "heart" of the new model is the same engine, a twin-turbo with six cylinders. This engine is also equipped on the GT3 model. Displacement remains 3.8 liters, virtually unchanged, but the consumption decreased by 16 percent and power increased to 520 hp, in the case of entry-level version, and 560 hp for the top variant, Turbo S - offering twice more horsepower than the first generation, launched more than 40 years ago.
Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h will take no more than 3.2 seconds (3.1 seconds for the Turbo S), while the maximum speed will exceed the threshold of 300 km / h. More particularly, 317 km / h, in the case of turbo S.

The engineers borrowed from the big brother 911 GT3 the full direction; this allows the Turbo model, to complete a lap of the old Nurburgring in a time of less than 7 minutes and 30 seconds.

The new electronic central differential, multi-disc, with cold water, only allows torque transmission to the axle and the wheel with the greatest adhesion, for an extended period of time without the risk of overheating.

Changes to the flagship 911 do not stop here. Increasing the external dimensions (a greater width with 28 mm, compared to the Carrera 4) has imposed a major reconfiguration of the drivetrain. The wheelbase has been increased with 100 mm (2,450 mm). The wheelbase sees sensitive readings exceeding the previous model (1.490 mm / 1.550 mm). Prominent wheel arches allowed the installation of 20-inch diameter wheels. The body structure, made partly of aluminum has led to substantial weight savings. The total weight of the car shall not exceed the 1570 kg of the previous generation.

The Sport Chrono Package is standard for the Turbo S and an option for Turbo, and adds ceramic brakes, full-LED headlights and adaptive chassis PDCC (The Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control), which uses active hydraulic anti-roll bars to eliminate practically body roll.

The new 911 Turbo is equipped with an active aerodynamic package, a retractable spoiler with a three-stage height / tilt, a front spoiler adjustable in three different positions. These things were made to create a higher aerodynamic downforce at high speeds.

Inside, the lucky owners will be greeted by the trim that borders on perfection. Also, they will find a few new gadget: the professional Burmester audio system, high beam assistant, adaptive cruise control and automatic parking, function recognition of traffic signs.

The official debut of the new Porsche 911 Turbo will be held in September in Frankfurt, and the first orders will be honored immediately after the closing of the most important Auto Show this fall.
