The new 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series from Porsche is the most powerful and unique 911 Turbo S ever, according to the company. The CoupÃ© provides 607 horsepower and is limited to 500 units worldwide.
In addition to a power increase of 27 horsepower, the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series is distinct from the standard 911 Turbo S due to its unique design, higher-quality materials and luxurious details. The sports car is being intricately finished by hand in the new Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur at the headquarters in Zuffenhausen in Germany. Previously known as Porsche Exclusive, the in-house workshop specializes in tailoring to customer wishes, as well as being responsible for limited-edition series. And for the first time ever, Porsche customers can have the matching chronograph from Porsche Design configured in the same design as their sports car.
Increased Power and Performance
The 3.8-liter, six-cylinder biturbo flat engine with an exclusive power kit has a maximum torque of 750 Nm, delivering between 2,250 and 4,000 rpm. This means that the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds, and takes 9.6 seconds to cross the 124 mph threshold. The sports car can reach a top speed of 220 mph.
The 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series comes with black-painted 20-inch wheels with central locking as standard, and their design lines are carefully finished in Golden Yellow Metallic using a new laser technology. For the first time, the brake calipers for the PCCB ceramic brake system are available ex works in a black-painted version with the Porsche logo in Golden Yellow Metallic. The active sports chassis with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and the Sport Chrono package are included in the standard equipment. The rear-axle steering and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) rolling-motion compensation improve handling and provide stability.
What makes the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series so distinctive is its exclusive Golden Yellow Metallic paint finish and the various components in carbon, like the bonnet, roof and side skirts, according to Porsche. The two carbon-weave strips that contour the roof and bonnet accentuate the sporty look of the car.
The rear view is characterized by the rear wing of the Turbo Aerokit, the new rear apron, the ram-air scoop in carbon and the exhaust system with two twin tailpipes made from stainless steel in black. The wings are decorated with Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur plates. In addition to Golden Yellow Metallic, the vehicle is offered in a range of other carefully selected exterior colors.
Master Interior Craftsmanship
The passenger compartment is both elegant and unique, according to Porsche. The 18-way adjustable sports seats are covered in two layers of perforated leather. The inside layer has two stripes in Golden Yellow, guaranteeing a unique effect.
The seams and the Turbo S lettering stitched on the headrests are also in contrasting Golden Yellow, and the roof lining is made of Alcantara with a Golden Yellow double-stripe look. Fine copper thread is integrated into the trim strips of the carbon interior package. The plate featuring the limited-edition number on the passenger’s side underlines the car’s exclusivity. The door entry guards, also finished in carbon, come with illuminated Exclusive Series lettering.
The Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series represents the first time that Porsche Design has released a Chronograph for limited production run customers that has the same design features used in the actual vehicle. The exclusive Chronograph combines the characteristic features of Porsche Design watches with the character of the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series, according to the company.
Just like the vehicle, it is limited to 500 units. Its housing is made of lightweight titanium, and its black titanium carbide coating emphasizes its sporty design. The carbon dial is taken from the striking carbon weave stripes on the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series and finished in the actual paint used on the vehicle. The rotor design is modeled on the rims of the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series and painted in the original color. The winding mechanism features a typical Porsche central lock with the Porsche crest on the movement.
The 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series launched June 8. Prices, including VAT and country-specific equipment, will start from $291,646 in Germany. The Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series will be available in Germany, starting at $11,161. The watch can be configured to the customer’s requirements when they buy the vehicle and is available at Porsche Centers.
