The Turbo S is a high-performance performance variant of the sixth generation Porsche 911, codenamed 991. It features all-wheel drive with four-wheel steering and a 3.8 litre twin-turbo engine producing 560 hp (418 kW). With top speeds north of 205 mph (330 km/h), as well as 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in less than 3 seconds, it is one of the fastest Porsche cars to date.
If you have a problem accepting progress, or if technology frustrates you, the 2014 911 Turbo S is here to help. Its amazing powers start with 560 horsepower coming from the 3.8-liter, twin-turbo flat-six out back. Those compressors offer further therapeutic benefits from variable vane technology that helps them spin up even faster. To keep the tires from spinning up nearly as fast, the Turbo S is all-wheel-drive. Thanks to a new liquid-cooled Haldex hydraulic device the front wheels can handle even more torque. When you put this kind of uncanny acceleration together with world-class top speeds, the 911 Turbo S could be considered a supercar in touring car clothing. New four-wheel steering technology enables tighter and more stable turns at slow or high speed, ensuring that any questions about the value of progress are completely acknowledged, if a bit pointless.
The Turbo S has all-wheel drive and four-wheel steering to improve turn-in steering in corners. Its exterior is fitted with 20" wheels and a front lip as well as an active rear wing. Weighing 3607 lb (1636 kg), the Turbo S is one of the heaviest Porsche 911 models but does not sacrifice in weight distribution due to an lightweight aluminum cylinder block engine with integrated drysump lubrication.
The 3.8 litre flat-six engine of the Turbo S uses two variable geometry turbochargers, offering 560 hp (418 kW) at 6750 rpm and 553 ft·lb (750 N·m) at 2250 to 4000 rpm. Power is sent to all four wheels through a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. The car is officially claimed to launch from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and hit a maximum top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h) which is exceeded in each Forza title appearance.
The Turbo S has excellent acceleration and launch, clocking in at 2.6 seconds upon hitting 60 mph and 6.8 seconds upon reaching 100 mph when launching from a standstill. It hits a top speed of 213 mph (343 km/h) in Forza Motorsport 6 which is somewhat higher in Forza Horizon 3. However, due to its high weight, handling is affected by understeer although steering response is fairly decent. With such driving traits, the Turbo S is more suited to high-speed race events rather than short tracks.
When compared to its rear-wheel drive counterparts, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS and Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0, the Turbo S has the quickest launch and is equal to the GT2 RS' acceleration to top speed. As it is significantly heavier than its rear-wheel drive counterparts, it cannot corner, nor brake as quickly, thus relying on well executed braking upon corner entries and quick speed recovery when exiting corners.
