Porsche says it will do 0-60 in 2.7 seconds on its way to a top speed of 205 mph. hour of course it costs a fortune really the base price for the new 911 turbo s is around 205k or if you want to go up to the convertible model the convertible like this that figure goes up to around 218k and that's before options of course there will be an entry level turbo model soon but then you get less power and still looking at a starting price probably around 165 to 170k and today I'm going to show you what the 911 turbo offers for that insane money first i'm going to take you on a full tour of the new 911 turbo s and show you all its cool features and quirks then i'm going to take it out on the road and drive it and then i'm going to give you a dig score ok i'm going to start with the quirks and features of the new 911 turbo with getting in and that means starting with the door handle which is currently flush with the door right now and that's because the car is locked if you want to get the door handle to be able to pull it open the door you have to walk to the car with the key in your pocket then stick your hand in this little cavity and the door handle will open look again you just stick your hand , it comes out and then from there once it's out just pull the door handle and you can open the door now the other way to make the door handle come out is just take the key and push the unlock button and then the door handles will come out which means the car is unlocked and then you can reach and open the door now the next cool item is to lock the car when the door handles open like I said the car is unlocked , but you can press the lock button on the fob which will lock the doors and then the door handles will go back in normally flush with the position of the door but you also have another option if you want lock the car and that is if you have the key in your pocket you can just touch the door handle and then the car will lock automatically and the door handles will automatically withdraw to your door and then we will move inside the car.

More Interesting Facts About,

the 2021 porsche 911 turbo s 992 is the newest ultra 911...

I want to start with the interior quirks and features with the roof because it's not just a 911 turbo s but a turbo s cabriolet which means it has a convertible top. Now, to raise the roof, there's a button on the center console that has a picture of a 911 with the roof on. You push that button and then the roof snaps into place and as you can see it happens pretty quickly. This is fast operating power. top I guess the theory is they don't want you to get wet if you're driving with the roof down and a sudden storm comes along and it's the same situation if you want to lower the roof it comes back to the center console it has a depi button When operating a 911 with the roof up down, you pull that and then the roof begins its lowering process again.

It's a very quick and easy operation and you can do it while rolling, which means you don't have to come to a complete stop. like on older convertibles but there are some other notable roof quirks and I want to start with the wind deflector go back to the center console and you can see just below the power buttons on top there is a button with a little way it shows the arrows pointing up or down that button controls the wind deflector press it and you can see the wind deflector automatically extends to the rear to make sure any wind that hits you while driving the car With the roof down it deflects and went over the roof so your hair doesn't get messy while driving with the top down.

It's pretty standard for most convertibles to have a wind deflector, though it usually doesn't work on power like this and the other interest. The important thing is that when you put the wind deflector on, it pretty much takes up the entire rear seat compartment, which means that if you have rear passengers and want to lower the roof, you'll probably mess up your hair, since you won't be able to. to get the wind deflector in place with the rear passengers sitting back there but to me perhaps the most interesting quirk of the whole overhead situation is the windows now here are the power window switches and obviously you can use them to raise or lower the windows, that's pretty standard, but there are more windows besides the front ones.
Look at this if you press this little button and it lights up. The window switches now control the rear windows. There are these little rear windows that you can also roll up or down. and believe it or not those windows will really come in handy for example if you want to position all the windows to shed as much wind as possible with the roof down you'll want to place those little rear windows f or even less wind or if you want a sense of open air in this interior without lowering the roof you can roll down the front and rear windows and have an open feel but keep the roof in place so you have those controls to adjust those little rear windows thought after and by the way a little More rear window item that you can't fit if the front windows are down.
Porsche doesn't want you to drive like a jerk with your little rear windows up but your front windows down so they make sure you have to have your front windows up if you want to get your rear windows up but anyway you go back to the center console to See more interior quirks and features. In the middle you have a cup holder that you can see. this rather big center cup holder but it doesn't have to be look at this push this little tab on the front of the cup holder and you can lift it up and Porsche offers you as a cup holder alternative this little storage compartment can be put in there instead of the cup holders if you prefer to have storage instead of cup holders you can decide and swap them out to have a removable cup holder in the center and since a two seat cup holder would probably cause a problem there is a second one cleverly tucked away on the passenger side of the dash in this little panel you just push it in and it extends out and you can see it's the passenger side cup holder but when you don't want it in place you just push it in and then it's hidden from view and the next rather unusual item in the center console of this car is the gear stick that has drawn a lot of interest since the new 9 debuted 11 a few months ago you can see it's small and oddly shaped and people think it looks like a razor the operation is pretty intuitive you pull it back to drive you push it forward to reverse and if you want neutral you're somewhere place in the middle so it's pretty standard stuff it looks pretty weird and s mall and stubby of course next to the gear stick you can see it has two buttons there p and m p it obviously puts the car in park when it's parked and then m puts the transmission in manual mode if you want to change gears yourself using the paddle shifters now interestingly this weird gear stick layout carries over to a few other controls in this central area eg the console center control has these five buttons which also share the layout of the gear stick it has the axle lift on the left the hazard lights in the middle all of these buttons have a similar theme to the rather unusual shifter and it's the same story with the climate controls back to the center console next to the shifter you have these three different climate control switches that also mimic the look at the shifter they change your temperature on the driver side on the passenger side and the fan speed and you move them the same way you move the shifter now talking about the cl Magnetic Controls Another item worth noting here is that around the control switches The climate controller in the form of a gear stick has a sort of button panel that you can see when the car is turned off, there's nothing there, but when you turn it on, these buttons light up and then allow you to choose between several different control functions. and when you press each climate control button on the panel it lights up and confirms you pressed it so you know when your defroster is on and that kind of thing it's kind of a clean look and then a pretty weird item in this interior on top of the dash in the middle it has the clock and this is for sure one of the weirdest clocks in the automotive industry because the time is displayed on this little reading in the center and the hand that rotates is the second hand so you have a giant second hand but a very small actual display of the time which of course is what you're really interested in right now the The reason for this is that This is actually the sports stopwatch that shows the lap timer but when you're not using it as a lap timer it works like a watch and that's how they make it a watch with a little time display but quite a pronounced screen.
Second, it's currently very useful, and then we move on to the infotainment system. I have reviewed this system on the new 911 carrera s and the new cayenne turbo but i want to highlight a few highlights here for example you can adjust the color of the interior ambient light you can choose from seven different options my personal favorite is atlantis yes that is the color i want my interior to have many cars allows you to choose the color of the ambient light although the most interesting thing here is that you can choose the amount of ambient light in several different places you can choose four different points with precision the amount of ambient light that it displays to perfectly set the mood of your turbo's interior, that being said there is one big drawback to the climate controls and infotainment system and that is the fact that I think they have simply integrated too many controls into the display, for example you can't change where the air is coming from without going into the screen and pressing these little icons here that means you can't actually adjust the airflow direction of the climate control without going to the screen and going through the menus instead of a simple control like basically every other car and it's the same with air conditioning you have to press this icon on the screen to confirm you want an action and not just fan or recirculating air again you have to go into a menu not ideal those things should be on simple buttons you can easily press and then we go to the group of gauges where there's a lot to like in the very center it has the tachometer and then it has two displays one on each side of the tank I really love it when the car is off the tack it feels like it's floating there in place when the displays they're not or n that's a really cool look but even when the car and the displays are on the tac it has this really cool look sort of an old school vintage look in the middle of All this modern technology, I love it now as far as the The displays on the gauge cluster offer different information.
The screen on the right is the most configurable and you can use this little wheel on the steering wheel to scroll through your various screens and you can see that it will display your tire pressure and your trip data. Eventually it shows the full screen map and all sorts of other different relevant vehicle info built into this right screen but your screen settings don't stop there press this little button on the steering wheel then you switch screens basically now this little wheel control the left screen and you can see that it shows a number of different items here, although there is less configurability because the speedometer is always fixed in place, but it's still pretty well set up nonetheless. capacity for these gauge cluster displays and I love seeing that old school tach right in the middle and by the way likeI mentioned I've covered this infotainment system before on other vehicles but I want to say it's really good overall very fast very responsive to your touch and relatively intuitive you can also see on the navigation screen very very responsive as much as you would expect from any tesla smartphone really had this

ultra

responsive center screen market cornered until just a few years ago but now all the car makers are coming fast but i want to get back behind the wheel anyway there are more controls worth highlighting one is this little wheel sticking out of the center of the wheel that says drive mode obviously you can use this to adjust your drive mode through several different settings comfort sport sport wetter individual you can choose with your little steering wheel the dial has another function too the middle e is a button, press it and it activates something called sport response, which lasts for 20 seconds you can see it on the gauge cluster it actually counts down when in this mode it has a short burst of energy perfect for a track pass or highway combination to go faster for a short time and another button interesting steering wheel worth noting on the left it has this diamond button on it you also see the exact same button on the center control stack another diamond on there so what is it? which porsche calls it the hotkey and it's programmable basically you can program it to be something you use often that doesn't have an easy button for example if you want to bring up the radio or a common navigation destination you can do it that and then it's right there on the configurable buttons on your thumb, a really good idea and I hope more car manufacturers expand on this, it's nice to see two of them on this Porsche and then we move on to the back seats.
Getting into the back seats is pretty easy if you have the convertible model with the top down all you have to do is pull this little loop here and push the seat forward which I will do and then you can hop in the back behind because it has the whole head. in the world it makes life easier although once you're back here there's not much space you can see I can't even hook the passenger seat into place the 911's back seats are still some of the back seats smallest in the entire auto industry then you are probably wondering why even offer rear seats the answer is not as some stupid urban legend goes to fool insurance companies into thinking you have a practical family car no insurance company you're going to think a 220 thousand dollar 640 horsepower porsche suddenly becomes low risk for sure because it has back seats they're not that stupid instead the back seats are here for practical purposes so you can use them in a pinch.
Some people put children back here or even adults. for a short trip and they make the car so much more practical I just wouldn't want to be stuck here for too long as far as the back seats there really isn't anything interesting back here because there really is nothing back here probably the most interesting element of the back seat is you can get rid of them if you lift up this little tab you can actually fold the back seats in the 911 which might seem weird because they don't fold down in a cargo area but it creates a relatively flat floor back here where you can fit larger items if you want to prevent something from sliding and keep it in place and another cool item directly behind the rear seats you can see these little cutouts on this piece of red trim those cutouts are for the roll bars blast out if this card senses you are about to roll over an explosive charge will fire these incredibly strong roll bars through the It's from this little piece cut out of the trim and those roll bars are strong enough to support the car if it rolls over which in theory will provide head protection for the occupants that's why those little cut outs are on this car and many other convertibles and then we move to the exterior of the new 911.
There are some interesting items worth discussing starting with the width as you can see the rear of this car is very wide it's a little bit wider than Its predecessor for an even more pronounced aggressive look, width is good for a sports car, overall wider track. it means better grip, better handling, better weight distribution, but you can't go too wide because then it will start to get cumbersome. This is the balance that Porsche has decided to strike for the new model, by the way, an interesting detail for the car fanatics among us. the turn signal back here is orange check this out it's lighting up orange now that may not sound unusual but all Porsche turn signals have been red for years and years and that will still be true on the new 911 turbo . this is a german.
Car specs and turn signals in Europe have to be orange but the US hasn't made that regulation so turn signals can be red and I guess Porsche thinks it looks better so that us market turn signals are red and then another remarkable new 911. item you can't access your engine anymore you can't see it you can't do anything with it it's not possible but you can get closer there's a little switch here on the drivers door sill area and you can see it as an open back kind of car you pull that switch and it takes you here and then as you can see if you look here you have access to some fillers for fluid you have oil and coolant here and you can put things if your car needs it but you don't have direct access to the engine and this is the closest thing to a bonnet you'll get on the new 911 porsche actually calls it the service lid and it's the same part that opens when will raise the roof up or down I guess the reason it doesn't open rear facing is that all turbo models have a fixed rear wing so that part had to stay in place and that meant this is it what you get if you want to check turn off the powertrain on your 911. at least it says its 3.8 turbo s to try and remind you that yes the engine is lur rey under somewhere and finally we go to the front trunk on this car to open the front trunk you pull this little switch on the driver's door jamb near the rear service flap switch and that puts the front trunk in this position then you come here and there's a little latch you pull somewhere in there which we open up and then you have access to the front trunk nothing particularly interesting here i have shown you the front trunks on a million Porsche models they are all pretty much the same it has a front trunk b Pretty big with decent cargo space but otherwise no oddities here and those are the quirks and features of the new 2021 porsche 911 turbo s cabriolet now it's time to take it out on the road and see how well it handles driving the 911 turbo s now i've been driving this car for a while and i have to say this has got to be one of the greatest sports cars ever um if you look at it objectively it really drives unreal i mean really very sharp unbelievably good unbelievably stable unbelievably balanced tremendously tight steering is instantly responsive just fantastic acceleration is mind blowing mind blowing i mean eyes in the back of your head like i can't believe this is happening kind of mind blowing then you also have the fact that it's not awkward you know cars gt are great but they are a mess and most people don't want that and the guys who l they have you guys say yeah im better than you because i can sit on a hard seat or its just weird for wanting to put up with it you can have the same performance in terms of usability on the street in one of these and get a much more comfortable car and then theres the technology we've got a lot of screens all over this car we've got a lot of the latest technology blind spot monitoring and lane keep assist and obviously forward collision warning and original adaptive braking and blah blah blah and this thing has everything, so why wouldn't anyone want to? get one if you're in the market you've got this money what are the reasons why you wouldn't want one huh and believe it or not i actually think there are a couple of pretty legit ones one is the brand name and the look at last instance.
To most people this just looks like a 911 which is largely what it is just a modified upgraded upgraded version of a 911 and at 220,000 before options you're playing against the amg gtr ferrari portofino you're getting into in mclaren territory huh even the hurricanes start in that kind of range the other big reason not to buy this car is you are going to get killed on the resale value of the gt3 the gt2 the gt2 rs as much as those cars are hard to drive e uncomfortable and over the top with their crazy wings they don't lose much value and the 911 turbo porsche builds a lot of them lose value and lose value substantially but if you're looking for probably the best sports car for the daily driver it's really hard to argue against t So you get some of the best handling the best performance of any vehicle its not as flashy as a ferrari or mclaren which has its downsides at this price you just get a porsche , but the advantage is that you don't have to worry. about this when you park it so much that you don't have to think all the time it's a harmful thing if it attracts too much attention it sends the wrong message to customers to employees but actually this car is so good in so many ways it drives so good it feels so well it drives well its just great its a really great car and in terms of a complete car the 911 turbo has always been the best and it looks like the

newest

is still finishing so thats the 2021 porsche 911 turbo s cabriolet not now i am as much a fan of all porsche gt models as many other car enthusiasts i am getting tired of the bigger and bigger wings and styling cues from me and the really rough and tough driving experience for me this is still going on the latest porsche 911 just be prepared to pay big and now is the time to give the new 911 turbo s a double score starting with the weekend and styling categories the new 911 t urbo looks great but still the 911 e gets a 7 out of 10.
Acceleration from 0 to 60 is less than 3 seconds so it gets a 10 out of 10. Handling is very precise but not up to the level of the Best Exotic Supercars and scores an 8 out of 10. The fun factor is great but also not just at the level of the best exotics, it's too good without as much sense of occasion and scores an 8 out of 10. The cool factor is high but Same deal for most people, still a 911, does well but earns a 7 out of 10 for a total weekend score of 40 out of 50. Below are the daily categories and features. It is well equipped, better than most cars like it and scores a 7 out of 10.
Comfort is also better than average and scores a 5 out of 10. Quality is tremendously high both in terms of materials and reliability and is It puts an 8 out of 10. Practicality is better than average for a car at this level of performance given the rear seats and ease of use and gets a value of three out of ten It's only average It's a great car but a really expensive one and It will lose value quickly, scoring a 6 out of 10 for a total daily score of 29 out of 50. Added up in the dug score is 69 out of 100, which puts it here against exotic supercars.
The 911 turbo is the odd man out here. a better daily score than any of these cars ferrari lamborghini mclaren audi r8 but gets a worse weekend score proving this is truly the everyday supercar and for people who want it to be perfect
