Posted By:

Porsche has launched the refreshed versions of the 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S cars ahead of their debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, USA, in January 2016.

The new 911 Turbo has seen a power increase of 18bhp over the outgoing model and now produces 532bhp. The sprint to 100km/h takes just three seconds and the top speed is 320km/h.

The 911 Turbo S uses the same 3.8-litre engine but has a higher power output of 572bhp (over 150bhp/litre), an increase of 20bhp over the outgoing car. The Turbo S hits 100km/h from standstill in just 2.9 seconds and the top speed is 330km/h.

Both models get Porsche's Sport Chrono Package and Porsche Active Suspension Management as standard equipment. In addition the Turbo S also gets Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control and carbon-ceramic brakes.

With regards to design, both cars feature a slightly changed front bumper which features a revised splitter as well as reshaped air intakes and dual LED indicator units on both sides. At the rear, the reshaped LED taillamps feature new graphics. The engine features a new grille for improved cooling and the rear bumper features the new trapezoidal exhausts. Also part of the new styling package are the new 20 inch wheels.

Inside the cars, the major change is the new 360mm steering wheel which features a new rotary dial for changing driving modes. Also included is the new Sport Response feature that allows drivers to exploit the car's full acceleration mode for up to 20sec at the press of a button. Other changes include a new touchscreen and wifi.

Both cars are available in coupe and convertible guises and are already on sale in Europe and the UK.
