Porsche 911 Turbo (2020) in the test: The Turbo can do it without the S.

Even without the S, the new Porsche 911 Turbo is a real stunner

Porsche is launching the 911 Turbo on the market much after the Turbo S. But the wait was worth it, as our trip to the racetrack shows.

D.he Hockenheimring. Celebrated here Michael sSchumacher Success and put the German racing fans in ecstasy. But today the stands are deserted, and a temperature of eleven degrees Celsius is not exactly ideal for one Sports car icon to scare around the corners. But that’s exactly what we have with the Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe the 992 series, now after the long available S version finally comes out on the streets.

The first round serves as an orientation and brings the necessary Temperature in the tires and drive train. Then things get down to business, and it quickly becomes clear that this sports car can do a lot more than we ask of it. After the apex of the south curve we climb fully on the gasto as possible a lot of speed on the start-finish straight to take with you. Before the north curve crisp, but briefly into the iron and turn. Brake down in front of the Parabolica and then just full Lotte through the kink. The speedometer has long since exceeded 250, and the Porsche Turbo accepts all of this with a shrug. It’s unbelievable how relaxed you can be with this car. Even turning too sharply in the Motodrom does not disturb this racer. Even in the Sport Plus modewhere the system trusts the pilot more than in the other driving modes, this car reacts incredibly nimble and forgives the mistakes people make at the steering wheel.

In the new turbo, the pilot is more involved again

The Porsche 911 Turbo lets its driver know what is going on, how it is about the traction and the Rear axle drift angle stands. The fact that the car sticks to the asphalt is a result of the improved Hang-on four-wheel drive with a reinforced front axle drive that can now distribute up to 500 Newton meters of torque to the wheels. The sports suspension also lowers the stiffer body by ten millimeters, thus promoting agility. In the steering you don’t have to think too hard, it is communicative and implements the driver’s commands just as precisely as with its stronger brother.

The new Porsche 911 Turbo involves the driver againthan was the case with the predecessor. It was also very quick, but almost too perfect because it ironed out a lot without comment. The new turbo makes everything even better, but you feel more like a pilot again and no longer quite like a passenger.

The mileage hardly justifies the price difference

Without the S and 70 PS weaker, the turbo is a whopping 31,900 euros cheaper – but hardly any slower.

After 2.8 seconds are 100 km / h reached, 200 km / h after 9.7 seconds, and thanks 580 hp (427 kW) and 750 Newton meters it continues until 320 km / h. In the end, it is not that much slower than the 70 hp more powerful S model. But it is much cheaper: the turbo also costs 180,811 euros a whopping 31,900 euros less than the Turbo S – that’s a real house number in these price regions too (Calculate maintenance costs? For insurance comparison). The sawing sound of 3.8 liter six-cylinder power plant, which does its job in the back of the driver, is addicting even in the “smaller” expansion stage – that requires Discipline on country road trips. On request, the Porsche 911 Turbo can also drive quite tame and will be there really suitable for everyday use. The adaptive damper reliably conceal uneven floors, and the gas pedal does not react quite as greedily to the movements of the right foot. As retaining very comfortable sports seats. This means that longer distances can also be managed well.
