This 997 Turbo S cabriolet is presented in the fantastic colour combination of GT silver with cocoa leather interior. It comes fitted with an extensive list of highly desirable optional extras.
The 997 Turbo S added 40bhp and £20,000 to the standard 997 Turbo’s already eye-wateringly extreme figures. Those figures, 560 BHP, 0 – 60 mph in 3.1 seconds, and 0 – 100 mph in 7.1 seconds speak for themselves. An increased top speed of 196 miles per hour is possible where conditions allow.
The engine received a nominal 1.0 bar of boost (against 0.8bar on the standard version) along with lightly modified turbocharger vanes and a carbon fibre air manifold to endow the S with a continuous (not over-boosted) 516 lb/ft of torque. That’s 37 lb/ft more than the Turbo. The S also gained Porsche’s excellent seven-speed PDK dual-clutch gearbox, with paddle shift behind the steering wheel, and Sport Chrono Plus package for more spirited throttle, damper and stability control settings at the press of a button. Other developments included the latest 911 Turbo’s four-wheel drive hardware and PTV, or Porsche Torque Vectoring, which varied the drive to each individual rear wheel for more neutral cornering and spectacular traction. Despite its phenomenal performance, it is also an easy car to drive in all conditions.
The car was originally supplied by Porsche centre Reading, is in perfect condition and represents a fantastic opportunity, and is available for immediate viewing at our London showroom.
