For all the Porsche fanatics, with money, there’s a new item to collect, the Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series, which is the most powerful and distinctive 911 Turbo S till date.
The super coupé provides 607 hp (446 kW) and is limited to 500 units worldwide. In addition to a power increase of 27 hp over the “regular” 911 Turbo S model, the exclusive model is distinguished by a few unique design features and is meticulously finished by hand in the new “Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur” at the brand’s headquarters in Zuffenhausen, Germany, previously known as “Porsche Exclusive”.
The 3.8-litre, 6-cylinder biturbo flat engine with an exclusive power kit delivers a maximum torque of 750 Nm between 2,250 and 4,000 rpm, allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds, and it takes only 9.6 seconds to cross the 200 km/h mark – making it quicker than the Porsche Carrera GT from a decade ago. It is also capable of hitting reaching a top speed of 330 km/h. It rides on black-painted 20-inch wheels with standard central locking; their design lines are finished in Golden Yellow Metallic using laser technology. For the first time, the brake callipers for the PCCB ceramic brake system are available directly from the factory in a black-painted version with the Porsche logo in Golden Yellow Metallic. The active sports chassis, equipped with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and Sport Chrono Package, is included as standard, as is the rear-axle steering and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC).
The Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series can be distinguished by the Golden Yellow Metallic paint finish – also available in other special colours – and various carbon components, such as the bonnet, roof and side skirts. The two carbon-weave strips that contour the roof and bonnet accentuate the sportiness further. At the rear is a wing of the Turbo Aerokit, the new rear apron, the ram-air scoop in carbon and the exhaust system with two twin tailpipes made from stainless steel in black.
On the inside, you have 18-way adjustable sports seats covered in two layers of perforated leather, with the inside layer featuring two stripes in Golden Yellow. The seams and the Turbo S lettering stitched on the headrests are also in contrasting Golden Yellow and the roof lining is finished in Alcantara, with a Golden Yellow double stripe. Fine copper thread is integrated into the trim strips of the carbon interior package. To mark its exclusivity, a plaque featuring the limited-edition number can be seenb on the passenger’s side. Finished in carbon, the door entry guards – or kick/sill plates – come with illuminated Exclusive Series lettering.
Also available is the optional made-to-order Porsche Design Chronograph 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series. It too is limited to 500 units. Its housing is made of lightweight titanium, and its black titanium carbide coating. The carbon dial reflects the carbon weave stripes on the coupe and finished in the vehicle’s exterior colour. The rotor design is modelled on the rims and painted in the original colour. The winding mechanism features a typical Porsche central lock with the Porsche crest on the movement.
Porsche customers can also avail optional Exclusive Series leather luggage set.
