Porsche 911 Turbo Confirmed For 2020, Turbo S Will Have 641 HP

Spy photographers have snapped the Porsche 911 Turbo on numerous occasions and now the company has released official pictures of the upcoming coupe and convertible.

The photographs were released following a test by a number of publications including Car & Driver. They report the upcoming 911 Turbo S will have a twin-turbo 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that has been equipped with larger turbochargers and redesigned catalytic converters. Thanks to these changes, the engine will produce 641 hp (478 kW / 650 PS) and 590 lb-ft (799 Nm) of torque.

To put those numbers into perspective, the outgoing 911 Turbo S has 572 hp (427 kW / 580 PS) and 516 lb-ft (699 Nm) of torque. This means the redesigned sports car will have an extra 69 hp (51 kW / 70 PS) and 74 lb-ft (100 Nm) of torque.

The upgraded engine is connected to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission which sends power to a standard all-wheel drive system. This setup will reportedly enable the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 2.5 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h). This is pretty impressive considering the car is slated to weigh 110 lbs (49.9 kg) more than its predecessor.

Other notable features include an active suspension, rear-wheel steering and a carbon-ceramic braking system. The latter will have new ten-piston calipers which grab onto massive 16.5 inch (419 mm) front discs. Out back, there will be eight-piston calipers and 15.4 inch (391 mm) discs.

Last but not least, the 911 Turbo S will be offered with an optional sport suspension. It will lower the ride height by 0.4 inches (10 mm).

While the photos don’t reveal much that we haven’t already seen, Car & Driver says the 911 Turbo S will ride on wider 20- and 21-inch wheels that are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. The publication also says the car will have a larger rear wing and an adjustable front splitter with additional travel.

We’ll have to wait several more months to see the production model as an official announcement isn’t scheduled until next spring.
