For the past two decades, the 911 Turbo S has reigned supreme as the leader of the regular production Porsche 911. Of course this doesn’t include the GT cars or the 911R, which is why it out priced them in some situations. The 991 series of 911 arrived in 2011, and the Turbo S took the world by storm. This 2017 example might look identical at first, but major changes were made to the 991’s second generation.
The 991.2 series is lower and wider, with subtle styling updates all around. It is essentially a new car for 2017. A new steering wheel is borrowed from the 918 Spyder, and the navigation system is now integrated with Google Earth and Street View. To keep the turbos spinning, a unique version of anti-lag cuts fuel in off-throttle situations. By leaving the throttle open, the engine’s exhaust remains pressurized. You will have boost waiting for you as soon as your right foot awakens the injectors.
In the corners, you are treated to Porsche Active Suspension Management and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control. The shocks are continuously changing in order to cope with any terrain. Even the sway bars are variable, allowing just enough body roll to keep things comfortable. The 7-speed PDK transmission is the world’s best dual-clutch gearbox. It can interpret your mood to hold each gear to just the right speed. At full throttle, it is as brutal and precise as a howitzer. That is why the Turbo S was chosen for the 911 Exclusive Series.
If you need to reach 60 mph in less than three seconds, this is the car for you. Consistent 10-second quarter mile times and violent launches are worth every penny. With only 2,384 miles, it is a bargain when you consider the window sticker. We enjoy bringing you the world’s most exclusive exotic cars for sale, so click the link below for your next car.
