Porsche 911 Turbo S- What Makes it the Exotic Car of the Century?
The list of exotic motors is full of cars whose mere name can get anyone drooling. Among these names, Porsche always have had its own unique place. In a recent poll conducted by Exotic Motors Midwest, Porsche 911 Turbo S was fifth on the list of exotic cars of the century.
Porsche has a rich history and legacy and the Porsche Turbo S line up is definitely one of the most desirable one. After five years of waiting, Porsche finally unveiled their exotic 911 Turbo S at the Geneva Auto Show 2010.
The 2011 Porsche Turbo S carries the performance dynamics of a true sports car while from the outside it seems like a car fit for a prince. The car is said to have set a standard in exotic cars by offering great performance, power and driving dynamics in one package. The Turbo S is a clear indication of the car’s sport capabilities.
The Porsche 911 Turbo S definitely looks exotic, but unlike Ferrari and Lamborghini, it carries more luxury rather than the sporty appeal. The exterior is a brilliant display of power and elegance. This makes it a perfect choice for elite businesspeople that prefer a comfortable, yet exciting, driving experience. Further enhancing the looks are 19 inch aluminium wheels. Apparently the best view that makes Porsche Turbo S a pure delight is its rear, complete with twin tail pipe and a rear wing.
Performance and Specifications
While Porsche is able to extract 530 BHP out of its 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-6 engine, the staple of Turbo S performance is its torque i.e. 516 pound-feet. On the other hand, the Porsche 911 Turbo is able to fire out 500 BHP and 479 pounds-feet torque. One thing that remains the same about the911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S is mileage. Given the better bhp and torque, 24 mpg is really an astonishing figure for the Turbo S.
The 911 Turbo S carries the same PDK semi-auto gearbox found in most 911 Turbos. Even though the new Porsche is based on an old Porsche 997 platform, it is able to achieve the amazing 62 mph in just 3.3 seconds.
Car of the Century
Carrying along the elegance and style of the classic Porsche 911 and the performance that will require years to be matched, the Porsche 911 Turbo S beautifully transitions into the next generation. This is definitely what it takes to be the exotic car of the century.
