Here's How Fast The Porsche 911 Turbo S Really Is
Car enthusiasts could argue the Carrera T is the most driver-focused model among the 911’s growing portfolio, but it’s the 992-series Porsche 911 Turbo S that’s the quickest iteration of the German automaker’s most iconic grand-touring sports car. This variant of the 911 Turbo series surpasses the other versions and takes speed to a whole new level.
Porsche quotes the 911 Turbo S with the Sport Chrono Package at 0-60 mph in 2.6 seconds and a 205 mph top speed; however, Car and Driver recorded a faster pace of 0-60 mph in 2.2 seconds, making it the second-quickest car in the publication’s history. Only the Porsche 918 Spyder beat the 911 Turbo S, winning by a tenth of a second.
The 911 Turbo S features a 3.7-liter turbocharged flat-six with 640 horsepower and 590 foot-pounds of torque, allowing the vehicle to complete the quarter-mile run in 10.1 seconds at 137 mph. For comparison, the track-focused McLaren Senna, with its 789-horsepower twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine, finished the quarter mile in 10 seconds at 147 mph.
