This 997 Turbo S Cabriolet in Carrara White with full black leather, is fitted with a large list of factory options and looks a real eyeful in its classic colour combination.
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.
