New Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet 2021 review

An all-new engine turns the 992-generation Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet into an everyday supercar-slayer
Other performance cars are better at turning heads, but if you want massive performance in a relatively subtle package that’s easy to use every day, then the Porsche 911 Turbo S has few peers. Its breadth of ability is astonishing, from supercar-rivalling pace to everyday levels of comfort and usability. But such a piece of kit doesn’t come cheap, with this edition priced from £165,127
Sometimes tasks that appear easy require a lot of effort. When asked what had been at the top of thespecification sheet for the development of the new Porsche 911 Turbo S, the man in charge of the project, Frank-Steffen Walliser, gives a simple answer: The heart of every 911 Turbo is the engin


The 3.8-litre flat six in the new 911 Turbo S is the same size as the outgoing model’s, but it’s all new. It’s based on the 3.0-litre unit used in the Carrera models, but Walliser vehemently rejects that it’s simply “bored out” for the Turbo. “We have invested a three-digit million sum,” Walliser

This was necessary in order to comply with emissions regulations, but at the same time Porsche was able to increase output to 641bhp – a 69bhp increase over its predecessor, a car that didn’t exactly leave you wanting for more performance. “You don’t just pull something like that out of a hat,” says Walliser
The list of improvements is long, and starts with larger variablegeometry twin turbochargers, which are identical to those in the 911 GT2 RS. The turbos now rotate in opposite directions on the right and left cylinder banks, thus creating the same flow conditions. Added to this are electronically controlled wastegate flaps and a new intake manifold with larger intercoolers, which are now positioned above the engine.
