The much awaited Porsche 911 Turbo S is here – The supercar killer packs 640 HP and a 0-60mph time of 2.6 secs

The new Porsche 911 Turbo S is finally here! The now-canceled Geneva Motor Show was to be the place where the 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S was to make its debut; however, Porsche had to reveal the sports car through an event hosted online, much like other manufacturers, and it was presented by the ex-F1 driver and Porsche brand ambassador Mark Webber. The 992-generation variant of the Turbo S was expected to arrive with a healthy power bump over the previous generation model. But, the German automaker surprised all by announcing the power and performance figures of the new Turbo S. It is powered by an updated version of Porsche’s twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six engine which is assisted with two VTG turbochargers. While the predecessor had 580 horsepower on tap, the new Turbo S gets 640 horsepower and 590 lb-ft torque, making it the most powerful and quickest 911 Turbo ever. Porsche claims the coupe variant can do the 0-60mph sprint in a blistering time of 2.6 seconds and the cabriolet only takes a tenth of a second more for the same. The top speed for both body types is 205 mph.
