The 4% power increase could have been easily achieved with a software update, but the task was also to reduce fuel consumption. The 991.2 Turbo 3.8 got different inlet ports, injection nozzles and higher fuel pressure compared to its predecessor. The Turbo S got turbochargers with larger compressors.

The new standard 918-style steering wheel has the mode switch (Normal, Sport, Sport+, Individual). The Sport Response button at the centre of the switch preconditions the engine and gearbox for the best possible responsiveness for overtaking.

Porsche Stability Management Sport Mode: a brief press of the PSM button puts the system in a very sporty mode – which is independent of the driving programme that is selected. The separately switched PSM Sport mode alters the intervention threshold much more than was the case in Sport Plus mode of the previous model. A long press of the PSM button, completely deactivates PSM.

With the Turbo S the PDCC Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control hydraulic roll bars come as standard. The PCCB Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes have been standard on the Turbo S already since the 996 generation. New options include radar-based lane change assist and a lift system for the front axle (increases ground clearance by 1.6"/40 mm). The PCM now has a multi-touch screen like in the facelift 991 Carreras. Routes and places can be visualised with 360-degree images and satellite images.

The wheels of the Turbo 3.8 are now 0.5" wider (9x20 front, 11.5x20 rear). This means the wheels on the Turbo are now as wide as on the Turbo S.
