Turbo. A term that, if it appears next to the number 911, sends chills down the spine of any lover of exceptional cars. The turbocharger, first used at the beginning of the 20th century in airplanes, was later successfully implemented in automobiles, especially at Porsche. First seen on Porsche race-cars (e.g. on the 911 Carrera RSR Turbo 2.1 at Le Mans in 1974), it will appear on the road from 1975 onwards via the 911 Turbo Type 930. From then on, the term Turbo was inseparable from Porsche, which reserved it for its most powerful homologated productions, and this until today. And among the latest Turbo to date are the 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo and 2021 911 Turbo Cabriolet. Discover them now with Porsche Québec!
The first thing immediately recognizable on a 911 Turbo is its impressively muscular lines. And the two models mentioned above, based on the superb Porsche 911 Type 992, are no exception. Indeed, the 2021 911 Turbo and 2021 911 Turbo Cabriolet are low-slung, and sport their iconic oval headlights at the end of the front fenders, and huge side air intakes just behind the doors, with pride. But it's really from the rear that you can recognize them, with their active wing that remains clearly visible. There's no doubt about it, we're dealing with high-powered turbocharged 911 cars!
Add to that a very futuristic rear light strip running across the stern, and colors as iconic as Guards Red, and you get a design as sporty as it is elegant on the roads of the Quebec City area!
But “Turbos”, as Porschists call them, are above all an engine that redefines performance in the super-sports car category each time a new 911 generation of this kind is released. And the new 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo and 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet confirm this again with the data provided by Porsche Canada. Indeed, both are powered by a flat-six turbo engine that develops 572 hp for 553 lb-ft of maximum torque!
Combined as standard with Porsche's legendary all-wheel drive system, this amazing engine brings a whole new level of performance to these Porsche 911 Turbo Type 992 models. For example, the new Porsche 911 Turbo delivers a 0–100 km/h sprint in just 2.8 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package. The new Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet performs the same feat in 2.9 seconds with the same equipment. The top speed for each of them is 320 km/h. Hence, You can enjoy unequalled performance in the Quebec City area, even in the middle of winter!
The interior of these new high-performance Porsche coupé and high-performance Porsche cabriolet is dedicated to dynamic driving. The lines are horizontal and simple, so you can concentrate on the road. Ergonomics have also been designed accordingly, including a sports steering wheel which is thicker at the 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock positions. Finally, the ascending centre console puts all the controls within easy reach.
Yet, this interior doesn't forget about luxury, nor the latest state-of-the-art technologies. 18-way power seats at the front, Club leather for the whole interior, intelligent cruise control, or Burmester sound system: you'll have all the comfort you're looking for during your everyday commutes from Quebec City or from Lévis to Ste-Foy!
All in all, the new iterations of the "Turbos" based on the 911 Type 992 push the limits even further. True GTs par excellence, they represent what Porsche knows how to do best: making high-performance vehicles that can be used every day.
