Porsche unveils 2017 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S prior to NAIAS

By ,

Here are the new 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S that will make their debut next month at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Both will go on sale in the second quarter of 2016 starting at $181,800 and $228,800, respectively. 

The models will be available in both coupe and convertible versions from the start. 

The 3.8L 6-cylinder twin-turbo engine in the 911 Turbo now has a power output of 540 horsepower. Meanwhile, the 911 Turbo S now develops 580 horsepower thanks to new turbochargers with larger compressors. Helped by a Dynamic Boost function, it sprints from 0-100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 330 km/h (3.0 seconds and 320 km/h in the case of the 911 Turbo).

Aesthetically, the 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo sports a newly formed front end with side “air blades” and precisely laid out, narrow LED headlights. On the sides, the high-performance sports car boasts new 20 wheels, while in the rear three-dimensional taillights with 4-point brake lights and aura-like illumination add much character. The exhaust tips were redesigned, as well. 

Inside, the GT-style sport steering wheel is inspired by the one in the Porsche 918 Spyder. Look for a new Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system with online navigation, Bose audio, and extended connectivity functions.

Pricing (MSRP) goes as follows:

  • 911 Turbo: $181,800
  • 911 Turbo Cabriolet: $195,800
  • 911 Turbo S: $214,800
  • 911 Turbo S Cabriolet: $228,800
