New Porsche 911 Turbo 2021 pricing and specs detailed: 'Cheaper' flagship is no slouch in a straight line

The Turbo might sit beneath the Turbo S in the new 911 range, but it’s an absolute monster in its own right.

Porsche has revealed the new-generation 911 Turbo coupe and Cabriolet, which slot in below their Turbo S siblings that debuted four months ago.

Set to arrive in Australian showrooms in December, the latest 911 Turbo is available in coupe and Cabriolet body-styles, priced from $396,500 and $417,500 plus on-road costs respectively.

This means the new 911 Turbo is a massive $77,000 cheaper than its Turbo S counterpart, but it’s also $6900 and $6400 dearer than its coupe and Cabriolet predecessors respectively.

Like the Turbo S, the latest 911 Turbo is powered by a 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat six-cylinder petrol engine, with its version producing 427kW/750Nm, a generational increase of 30kW/40Nm. For reference, those outputs are 51kW/50Nm less than that of the former.

Mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and an all-wheel-drive system, the new 911 Turbo sprints from a standstill to 100km/h in 2.8 seconds, which is 0.2s quicker than its predecessor and only 0.1s off the mark of the Turbo S. Top speed? 320km/h.

Aside from a different set of staggered alloy wheels and specific badging, the latest Turbo is more or less visually identical to its Turbo S sibling, with both 911 variants sharing their increased track width (+42mm front, +10mm rear) and aggressive bodywork.

Standard equipment in the new 911 Turbo includes adaptive LED headlights, LED tail-lights, a 10.9-inch touchscreen multimedia system, digital radio, a Bose surround-sound system, keyless entry and start, a sports steering wheel with paddle-shifters, 14-way power-adjustable front sports seats with heating, blind-spot monitoring, surround-view cameras and front and rear parking sensors.

Sports suspension (a firmer tune with a 10mm-lower ride height) and a sports exhaust system are options alongside active anti-roll bars and a carbon-ceramic brakes package for the 911 Turbo for the first time.

Lightweight Design (full-bucket front seats, no rear seats and less insulation) and Sports (gloss-black and carbon-fibre trim) packages will become optionally available from early next year, according to Porsche Australia.
