The Porsche 911 Turbo S is designed to be a notch above the 911 Turbo model. It is claimed to provide lots of power, good performance and great driving dynamics.

The 911 Turbo S is what it is because of its six-cylinder boxer boosted by two exhaust gas turbochargers with variable turbine geometry, with an increase in power over the 911 Turbo with 530 bhp (390 kW). The car's 700 Nm maximum torque (516 lb-ft) is best in its class.

But with so much power and performance packed in the 911 Turbo S, it is expected to be priced at Rs 1.87 crore (ex-showroom, New Delhi) and the approximately Rs 1.90 crore in the rest of the country.
