For 2010, Porsche produced a new range-topping 997 Turbo, using the ‘Turbo S’ name.
The 997 Turbo S benefited from a 30bhp hike in power, with an impressive 700Nm of torque. Despite this, it was capable of returning 24.8mg, which was similar to the fuel consumption of the standard 997 Turbo.
The Turbo S came as standard with a PDK transmission with paddle shifters, Dynamic Engine Mounts, PCCB brakes, Porsche Torque Vectoring and a limited slip rear differential. In addition, it boasted Dynamic Cornering Lights, RS Spyder centre-lock wheels, adaptive Sports seats, cruise control and CD/DVD changer.
A two-tone interior was exclusive to the 997 Turbo S and buyers had a choice of Black and Cream or Black and Titanium Blue.
The Turbo S was available in soft-top form with a fully electrically operated hood.
