Preview: 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo

, Automotive Editor - May 06, 2013

Hot on the heels of the newest generation Porsche 911 Carerra, the insanely powerful 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo has just broken cover. With a newly revised twin-turbocharged flat-six engine, advanced driving aid technology, active aerodynamics and a mean-looking design, the top-level 911 Turbo S has more than double the power output of the original 1974 Turbo car.

The Turbo will once again be available in standard and "S" variants. Each harnesses the power of a rear-mounted 3.8-liter flat-six-cylinder engine, related to the unit used in the Carerra S but adding twin variable-geometry turbochargers to the mix. Power output is no joke: 520 horsepower in the Turbo and 560 horses in the Turbo S, for 0-60 mph times of 3.2 seconds and 2.9 seconds, respectively.

There will be no three-pedal manual transmission option here; Porsche's PDK sequential auto-manual with seven cogs will come standard. Power is sent to the road via a standard AWD system, completely revamped in the 991 generation with liquid cooling and electronically actuated multi-plate coupling for seamless power delivery to each wheel on demand. Porsche has also thrown in a new active steering system, which can independently adjust the angle of each rear wheel to improve low-speed cornering and high-speed stability.

As expected, the Turbo receives a wider rear track housing beefy standard 20-inch wheels. You'll also find an active aerodynamics system with electronically adjusted spoilers both front and rear. Porsche says the aero system alone cut more than 2 seconds from the car's Nurburgring lap time. The Turbo S laps the 'Ring in under 7 minutes, 30 seconds.

The interior receives the full supercar treatment, especially in the top-level S model with its Carerra Red/Black two-tone leather sport seats with 18-way adjustability for the driver and memory function. A Bose surround sound system comes standard, and if that's not enough, you can opt for an upgraded Burmester audio system. Radar-aided active cruise control, LED headlamps that use a camera system to follow the road ahead, and road sign recognition with life-saving speed limit monitoring round out the top features.

The 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S will go on sale nationwide right at the tail end of 2013. Pricing will start at $148,300 plus destination for the Turbo, while the 911 Turbo S will start at $181,100.
