Porsche has extended its long line of 911 sportscars with the unveiling of the 2021 911 Turbo S and Turbo S Cabriolet. The new models represent the best of the 992-era for the German marque and are each equipped with a revised 3.8-liter flat-six engine.
The turbocharged unit now creates 640 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, pushing the car from 0-60 MPH in just 2.6 seconds for the coupe and in 2.7 seconds for the convertible — making the hardtop a tenth of a second quicker than the previous range-topping GT2 RS. Both iterations of the new 911 Turbo S will reach a top speed of 205 MPH, doing so with four-wheel-drive keeping you planted to the tarmac.

Porsche makes the Turbo S variants stand out amongst the rest of the 911 group thanks to a wider, more squat body. It’s been widened both on the body and internally on its tracking, making for better aerodynamics and agility. Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, rear-axle steering and Porsche’s signature ceramic composite brakes — that now sport 10-piston front calipers — are all standard on both iterations, while the adaptive-lowering sports suspension and sports exhaust system are new optional extras.
Take a look at the Porsche 911 Turbo S and Turbo S Cabriolet in the gallery above. The coupe is set to cost from $203,500 USD, while the convertible will cost from $216,300 USD, before any fees. Expect the two to release in the U.S. in late 2020.
