The fastest accelerating 911 ever

Although a somewhat minor revision of the Porsche 911 Turbo, the Porsche 2010 911 Turbo S is the first 911 S model in five years and the first for the 997. And due to some clever engineering, it is now the fastest-accelerating 911 ever, which is most definitely saying something. The twin-turbo flat-six is boosted to 530 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque (same as their spectacular 911 GT2), transferred to all four wheels through Porsche’s seven-speed PDK dual clutch gearbox — nice, considering Audi wasn’t able to incorporate its DSG into their halo R8. Most impressively, the Porsche 2010 911 Turbo S retains great mileage for its power output: 24.8 mpg, the same rate as the base Turbo’s with 500 hps. With a top speed of 196 mph, it’ll hit 0-62 mph in just 3.3 seconds. Also featuring ceramic composite brakes, 19″ RS Spyder wheels and a new leather interior, both the Turbo S Coupe ($159,100) and Cabriolet ($170,200) will debut at the 80th Geneva Motor Show March 4-14 and should hit the streets in May.
