Earlier this year Porsche launched the 992-gen 911 Turbo S, and now we have the 911 Turbo with slightly less horsepower and a cheaper price tag.
Like the Turbo S, the entry-level model is also available in two body styles – coupe and cabriolet. Both versions look similar to their more potent counterparts. The car is equipped with the Sport Chrono package as standard. It also gets features such as a 10.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, sport steering wheel, 14-way adjustable sport seats and a Bose audio system. Additionally, customers get the option of a Burmester audio system and safety aides like Night Vision Assist, Lane Keep Assist with traffic sign recognition
The 911 Turbo is powered by a 3.8-liter, twin-turbo, flat-6 engine that develops 572 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. The setup allows the car to sprint front 0-60 mph in 2.7 seconds (2.8 sec for the cabriolet), while the top speed is 198 mph.
The base-spec Turbo also comes with all-wheel drive and rear-axle steering. However, some features like the sports suspension, sport exhaust system and ceramic brakes are available as options. The Lightweight Package is available on the coupe. It drops the overall weight of the car by about 66 lbs. The Sport package adds the SportDesign package and extra carbon elements among others.
Prices for the 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo start at $170,800 for the coupe and $183,600 for the cabriolet.
