This is the facelifted Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S, built to bring the range-topping models in line with the rest of the 911 line up. The styling tweaks are subtle to say the least, but the revised models are distinguished by thin LED light strips in the front bumper, a new wheel design, the ‘three dimensional’ rear lights that are being rolled out across the Porsche range and a new engine cover with vertical slats.
The cabin is largely unchanged, although a new 360mm ‘GT’ steering wheel replaces the outgoing 380mm item and the latest, much-improved Porsche Communications Management system has been introduced. A rotary switch on the steering wheel allows the driver to toggle through the car’s various drive modes.
Power is up, fuel consumption is down and the performance figures are even more sensational than before. There are a handful of minor mechanical revisions beneath the skin, too.
