Here’s how the Porsche 911 Turbo S’ aerodynamics work.
Like its predecessor, the new 911 Turbo S comes with active aerodynamics. It has a retractable front splitter, vanes in the bumper than open and an active rear spoiler.
In normal mode, the splitter is folded away and the rear spoiler is in its lowest position, while the air intake flaps are regulated between 43-106 mph. In Sport mode, the front splitter and rear spoiler are partially deployed. In Sport Plus mode, the splitter and rear spoiler are extended fully for optimum downforce. The 911 Turbo S also comes with a Wet mode. When activated, the rear spoiler extends to keep rear of the car planted under low grip conditions.
The new 911 Turbo S features a revised 3.8-liter, twin-turbo flat-6 engine which now produces 640 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, up from 580 hp and 553 lb-ft. The engine is bolted to an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic. The Coupe accelerates from 0-60 mph in 2.6 seconds, while the Cabriolet is 0.1 sec slower. Both cars will hit a top speed of 205 mph.
