The Porsche 911 Turbo S is without a doubt the ultimate everyday supercar (some might disagree but to each their own we guess) and has proved it time again. The 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series has been finished by hand in Porsche AG’s headquarters in Stuttgart-Zuffernhausen in the new Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, previously called Porsche Exclusive, which is the in-house workshop that specializes in customization and exclusive models. This truly is a limited edition since only just 500 these will be sold worldwide.
The Porsche 911 Turbo S is not really shy on power, but they’ve bumped it up anyway. Power comes from the same 3.8 liters flat 6 but has been bumped up to 446kW’s at 6750rpm and 750 N.m of torque from 2250-4000rpm. That’s 19kW’s and 50 N.m more than the standard model. The claimed 0-100km/h is 2.9 seconds which remains unchanged (we all know that Porsche always airs in the right side of caution) and the 0-200km/h time is claimed at 9.6 seconds which is 0.3 seconds faster than the standard Turbo S and will top out at 330 km/h. The active sports chassis with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and the Sport Chrono package are included as standard. Rear-axle steering and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) further enhance handling and stability.
Exterior wise is where the Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series shines
It’s finished in Golden Yellow Metallic though you have an option of selecting the standard Porsche colours, we see no reason why you’d opt for a different colour because this one is epic! Some of the exterior changes include:
• 20-inch center lock wheels painted in black.
• For the first time, the brake calipers for the Porsche Carbon Ceramic Composite Brake system are available in black (with Porsche logo in Golden Metallic Yellow) instead of the standard yellow.
• Carbon fibre components– front truck lid, roof, and side skirts.
• A new rear fascia with the wing from the Turbo Aerokit.
• Exhaust system with twin tailpipes finished in black.
• And fenders are decorated with Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur plates.
In the interior, you’re greeted by 18-way adjustable seats which are covered in perforated leather. The inside layer and headrests with Turbo S lettering are stitched in Gold Metallic Yellow. The center of the seats has two stripes in Gold Metallic Yellow including the Alcantara roof lining, which looks pretty darn good. The interior features fine copper thread in the carbon fibre which is found on the door sill guards including illuminated Exclusive Series lettering.
The Porsche 911 Turbo S will set you back a neat starting at R4 072 000, with a three-year maintenance plan. We’d have ours in this exact same spec.
