As it turns out, the Bilster Berg racetrack in Germany is perfect to drive the 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S in anger.
In the expert hands of Tim Schrick, the new 911 Turbo looks so easy to drive. It’s hard to imagine that a few generations ago it was dubbed as “the widowmaker”. Watch how he throws the car into a slide over the crest, all the while being calm behind the wheel.
The 992-gen 911 Turbo was unveiled last month. As expected, it’s an evolution of the outgoing 991. It is powered by 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, featured here does 0-60 mph in 2.6 seconds and has a top speed of 205 mph.
The new model comes equipped with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) Sport suspension and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC). It also gets rear-axle steering.
