A team of engineers from the German brand is testing a convertible 911 Turbo S prototype. It is known that the novelty will cost at least 217,650 dollars

Although we already know a lot about the updated coupe and cabriolet 911 Turbo S, deliveries of models will only begin at the end of the year. If you can’t help but worry about the latest generation of the German sports news in the even more powerful S-version, see these photos from the tests of the prototype white Turbo S in the cabriolet. The car was tested in a snowy area.

 The driver of this test 911 Turbo S, apparently, had a very good time, because in some pictures the snow clogs the ventilation holes of the rear wings and the rear wheels – the guy did not even think about saving the engine of the car, he constantly podgazovat.

It is possible that the company is testing the so-called wet mode, which can determine the presence of water on the road and make changes to the stability control system and anti-lock system. This technology is already used in the 911 Carrera, but probably a more powerful engine requires changes to the system.

 Turbo S uses a modified version of the 3.8-liter turbocharged engine with 640 horsepower (800 Nm). In the previous generation model, the indicators were 580 hp. and 750 Nm. This gives the updated coupe acceleration to 100 km / h in 2.6 seconds or 2.7 seconds for a convertible. Both have a top speed of 330 km / h.

 Porsche equips the new Turbo S with active aerodynamic elements in the front and rear. The interior is slightly different from the Carrera interior, including standard Plus sports seats with 18-way adjustment. The price of the 911 Turbo S 2021 coupe starts at $ 204,850, or $ 16,292,232 and $ 217,650, or $ 17,310,248 for the convertible version.
