The Porsche 911 is a true sports car. Pushing speeds of over 196 mph, the Porsche 911, hands down, is a cool car. There is quite a bit of history that goes along with Porsche’s innovative quality in engineering. Porsche’s website boasts features, tech specs and tons of great galleries and downloads for automotive enthusiasts. We’ll take a look at what makes this sports car a true beauty.
The Porsche 911 Turbo models include direct fuel injection (DFI), which injects millisecond precision straight to the combustion chamber. The 500 hp 911 Turbo models rev at an impressive 6,000-rpm and 480 lb-ft torque between 1,950 rpm and 5,000 rpm. The alloy engine contributes to a lightweight design and a significant reduction in fuel consumption.
Take a look at the specifications:
- 530 horsepower @ 6,250 rpm
- 0-60 mph 3.1 seconds
- Top Track Speed: 196 mph
- Fuel Consumption (Highway): 25 mpg
Superior Suspension and Steering
The Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) is an electronic active damping system that offers adjustments and damping force on each wheel and changes based on current road conditions, as well as the driving style for whoever is behind the wheel. There are two modes, normal mode and sport mode, which can be activated at just the push of a button. The normal mode provides basic performance and comfort, while the sport mode has a wide variety of settings that lend to fast driving and adaptive handling. Inside the car, the power-assisted steering offers accurate feedback from the road. Driver effort is minimal; it’s a race car, with the ease of use of an everyday commute. A key feature of the steering system is the variable-ratio gearing. While around the straight-ahead position, the ration is less direct and enables smoother maneuvers on the road. This also reduces the risk of excessive steering inputs, which could destabilize the car at higher speeds. Turning the wheel harder, the ration becomes more direct, enabling better control at lower speeds and easier means for parking.
BOSE Surround Sound-System
Yep, the Porsche 911 Turbo S interior comes fully equipped with a state of the art 7 speaker BOSE surround sound system. In short, you’d be sitting in one of the fastest concert halls in the world.
