Porsche 911 Turbo (992) – Reviews, Pricing, Specs & Buyers Guide

The Porsche 911 Turbo has long been the king of all-weather sports cars, pairing exceptional performance with the surefootedness of all-wheel drive, and that is no different for the current 911 Turbo. In fact, Porsche has upped the ante, because the current 911 Turbo matches the output of last year’s 911 Turbo S and added a sport-tuned version of Porsche Active Suspension Management for the first time.

It would be a disservice to call this new Turbo a “lesser” car than the Turbo S, but it does have less in most departments. Less power at 573 hp and less torque at 55 ft lbs. That is right, we are complaining about 572 bhp @ 6500 rpm and 553 ft lbs @ 2250 rpm. This is an absurd world. There are also less features compared to the jam-packed Turbo S.

Most importantly, less money required to put one in your garage, starting at US$172,150 in 2022 compared to US$20,850 for the Turbo S. This also is not to say that the new Turbo isn’t anything short of a monster. It will still go 0 to 60 in 2.7 seconds, will corner like it was on rails with Porsche Torque Management (PTM) all-wheel-drive, and it will still hit a 198 MPH top speed.

Porsche themselves, in their press release, points out another important fact about the new Turbo: It matches, or exceeds, the packaging, performance, and technology of the Type 991 911 Turbo S and it is pretty darn close to the 992 Turbo S.

An 8-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission is the only available option for the Turbo. However, almost all of the technology packages that are built into the Turbo S are available as options for the Turbo, so you can pick and choose the specific items you want.

Motor1: takes your breath away with a crush of G forces, the relaxed throttle response belying the urgent way the revs build and the speed climbs. Turbo lag is present, but considering the specific output, the increase in boost from the bigger turbos (19.6 psi max, up from 16.0 in the C4S), and the sheer urgency in how the flat-six revs, you’ll struggle to spot it.

Many argue that the Carrera 4S is good enough so why go for a 911 Turbo? First of all, the Turbo has 572 hp and 553 pound-feet of torque, which is up 129 hp and 163 lb-ft over the current Carrera 4S. Unsurprisingly, this Porsche’s straight-line performance is staggering compared to the 4S. The sprint to 60 miles per hour takes an insanely fast 2.7 seconds with the help of launch control, while the quarter mile happens in just 10.8 seconds. If you are brave enough, the top speed is 199 mph.

All-wheel drive is standard and shifts are handled by an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission as the only option. This is a great all-rounder. Lots of power. Lots of luxury and fast enough to scare you when you need a little thrill.

To complement the tremendous power, the 992 Turbo packs a heap of speed-wrangling hardware and goodies, like standard rear-wheel steering and a similar aero setup as the one found on the Turbo S. There’s a heap of optional extras too, including the Turbo S’ carbon-ceramic brakes, a new Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) Sport suspension, offering more aggressive damping and tuning and a 0.39-inch drop over the standard PASM setup—which, we once again must stress, is still absurdly capable. Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) with active anti-roll stabilization is also available.

Updates and Pricing for 2022

Prices for the 2022 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe start at $172,150 (including mandatory destination charges of $1,350). Options you may want to go for include the $5,500 for 20-inch front and 21-inch rear wheels, $2,770 for the nose lift and $3,020 for the Porsche InnoDrive system, which includes adaptive cruise and lane-keep assist. There’s also a new optional sport-exhaust system—the first of its kind on a non-S Turbo—along with a new Lightweight package and Sport Package, just like the ones found on the Turbo S. The Lightweight package cuts 66 pounds via removal of the rear seats, swapping the front seats for buckets, and shaving sound insulation. Unfortunately, the Sport package adds nothing other than a few aesthetic touches, building primarily on the existing SportDesign kit, so we are not sure that is worth the money.

Porsche upgraded the infotainment system on the 2022 911 to include a new 10.9-inch touchscreen interface that the company calls both simplified and flexible in its personalization. It comes with wireless Apple CarPlay, and for the first time, the 911 gets Android Auto compatibility. Porsche also extended its connected services from one year to three years before reverting to a subscription model. Those services include natural voice commands activated by “Hey Porsche,” online map updates, and navigation with real-time traffic info. Satellite radio also gets a three-month trial.

Press Release

Atlanta, Georgia. Since its introduction over 45 years ago, the Porsche 911 Turbo has balanced everyday usability with exhilarating performance. Following the recent introduction of the 2021 911 Turbo S, the 2021 911 Turbo Coupe and Cabriolet are now making their debut.

Thanks to an output of 572 hp (427 kW), marking an increase of 32 hp over the predecessor, the new 911 Turbo accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds (0.2 seconds faster than before) while the new 911 Turbo Cabriolet takes 2.8 seconds (also 0.2 seconds faster) The acceleration, power output and torque (553 lb.-ft.) of the new 911 Turbo are on the level of the previous 2019 911 Turbo S.

Like the 2021 911 Turbo S, the twin-turbo boxer engine in the 911 Turbo models is mated to a standard eight-speed PDK transmission with Turbo-specific internals and calibration. The top track speed of the new 911 Turbo models is 198 mph. New options such as a Sport and Lightweight package, Sport Suspension with a lower ride height and Sport Exhaust system, first introduced for the 911 Turbo S, are also available for the 911 Turbo for the first time, providing an even higher degree of customization than ever before.

The 2021 911 Turbo models follow in prestigious footsteps: the 911 Turbo has been the ultimate intersection of performance and luxury within the 911 model line since 1975. The latest generation of 911 Turbo is more than twice as powerful as the original 930 Turbo, which featured a three-liter, six-cylinder boxer engine, single turbocharger and an output of up to 260 PS, depending on the market.

Like the recently introduced 2021 911 Turbo S, the six-cylinder boxer engine in the new 911 Turbo has a displacement of 3,745 cc and now features symmetrical VTG turbochargers with electrically controlled bypass valves. In conjunction with the redesigned charge air cooling system and the use of piezo fuel injectors, this improves throttle response, performance, torque delivery and the free revving nature of the engine. In the Turbo models, this engine makes 572 hp. Complementing the increase in power, the chassis has been tuned to offer an even greater level of performance. Adopting the changes implemented on the new 911 Turbo S earlier this year, steering response and precision on the new 911 Turbo models have been further improved thanks to an additional 1.65 inches of front track width and the new 20-inch 255/35 tires (up from 245/35 previously). Also shared with the 2021 911 Turbo S, the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel drive system in the 911 Turbo is able to transfer even more power to the front wheels than before. Traction at the rear axle, which is equipped with rear-axle steering as standard, is increased even further by 0.39 inches of added track width compared to the last 911 Turbo, as well as 315/30 tires on 21-inch wheels (305/30 R 20 previously). The revamped brake system is even larger than on the last 911 Turbo and can be recognized by the red fixed calipers. The front cast iron brake rotors now measure 408 millimeters in diameter (28 mm larger than the previous 911 Turbo) and are 36 millimeters thick (plus 2 mm). The rear axle features 380-millimeter brake rotors that are 30 millimeters thick. Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB), standard on the 911 Turbo S, with 10-piston front calipers, are available as an option.

A Sport Exhaust system that was introduced on the 2021 911 Turbo S is also optionally available for the 911 Turbo for the very first time. Two different suspension options are also new: while the standard PASM suspension offers a greater spread between agility and ride comfort than before, the particularly performance oriented, electronically controlled PASM Sport Suspension with a 0.39 inch (10 mm) lower ride height compared to the standard suspension benefits the agility of the new 911 Turbo even further with a set-up aimed at further enhancing driving dynamics. Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), which uses active anti-roll stabilization, is available as an option for the 911 Turbo models.

The muscular design of the 911 Turbo reflects the significant increase in power and performance of the new generation. Shared with the 2021 911 Turbo S, the body of the new 911 Turbo models is 1.8 inches wider than the predecessor at the front fenders to accommodate the increase in track width and tire size compared to the previous model. The new front luggage compartment lid featuring a striking recess in the center underlines the performance-focused character. LED headlights with PDLS Plus are fitted as standard. At the rear axle, the body is now 0.78 inches wider than the previous generation 911 Turbo (991), also to accommodate wider track and tires. Other distinguishing features of the new 911 Turbo are the enhanced adaptive aerodynamics with controlled cooling air flaps at the front, a larger active front spoiler and the significantly increased size of the active rear spoiler. The air intakes on the rear side panels, characteristic for the 911 Turbo, now draw in process air rather than cooling air. The charge air coolers are now positioned directly in the air stream under the rear decklid. The continuous light bar with LED tail lights as well as the new louvered rear decklid grille with silver trim strips round off the design of the rear end.

The appearance and performance-focused character of the vehicle can be additionally enhanced by the optional Lightweight package and Sport package. The Lightweight package for the coupe reduces the vehicle’s weight by about 66 pounds. Full Bucket seats, the deletion of the rear seats and reduced sound insulation contribute to the weight savings and allow the exhaust note to enter the cabin more intensely. The Sport package encompasses all the elements of the SportDesign package as well as additional applications in Black, carbon fiber elements and Exclusive Design clear taillights.

The basic elements of the 911 Turbo interior correspond to those of the current 911 Carrera models with Porsche Advanced Cockpit and Direct Touch Control. The 10.9-inch Porsche Communication Management (PCM) center screen can be operated quickly. The extensive list of standard equipment includes electrically adjustable 14-way Sport seats, the Sport Chrono package, a GT Sport steering wheel with shift paddles and mode switch as well as the BOSE® Surround Sound System. Numerous options are available, including Porsche InnoDrive with adaptive cruise control, Lane Keep Assist with traffic sign recognition, Night Vision Assist, Surround View and a Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System.

The 2021 911 Turbo models are available to order now and are expected to reach U.S. dealers by early 2021. MSRP is $170,800 for the 911 Turbo Coupe and $183,600 for the 911 Turbo Cabriolet, both not including the $1,350 delivery, processing and handling fee.
