Porsche’s New 640HP Sports Cars Are The Most Powerful 911 Turbos Ever Built

Porsche never pulls its punches when it comes to the introduction of new automotive platforms, and that can be amplified numerous times when it comes to the reevaluation of one of its most revered chassis. For 2021, the company’s chart-topping 911 Turbo S has seen more than a few performance upgrades, working alongside both a Coupe and Cabriolet silhouette to make it the most powerful 911 Turbo ever built.

The introduction of the company’s updated Coupe and Cabriolet shocked the automotive world when it was announced that both variants would adopt an enhanced turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six engine, as well as two enlarged VTG turbos to boost the platforms’ power from 580 horsepower to around 640. As a result, the Coupe can rocket from 0-60 in just under 2.6 seconds, with the open-top Cabriolet version coming in at a formidable 2.7, making it a viable competitor in the realm of off-the-line performance. Surprisingly, the vehicles’ 205 mile-per-hour top speeds are in-line with one another, despite the difference in weight. Each edition of the 911 Turbo S has been widened to improve aerodynamic performance, working alongside a large rear wing, adaptive air flaps, Dynamic Chassis Control, and rear-axle steering to complement the company’s newly-included Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system. Inside, the cars’ sporty, full-leather interiors have been adorned with tasteful carbon accents, 18-way adjustable sports seats, and enhanced console elements. Look for both the 911 Turbo S Coupe ($203,500) and Cabriolet ($216,300) to launch in late 2020.
